This ca. 1860 Middle Road home is found at the link above to the 1976 historical survey as #3 on the map.  The original owners were William Gates Crossman (1819 - 1862) and his wife Elizabeth Hall (1825 - 1901).  Elizabeth was the daughter of Caleb Hall (1779 - 1857), a wealthy merchant in Clarendon.  In 1850 she and her husband were living with her father, her husband noted as a merchant.  He likely was working for Caleb being in the 1860 census William Crossman had a personal worth of only $400.  William died shortly thereafter of consumption and in 1870 his widow is living in this large home and has a personal worth of $8,000. 

At the time of the 1976 historic survey the home was owned by Elizabeth Hughes.  The cover photo was taken in 2017 by Rick Bersaw.  Note that the 1869 map of Clarendon is in error concerning this property.  It indicates the owner is E. Cassman rather than E. Crossman.
