Crosby Crossing was named after the family who lived here around the late 1800's to the early 1900's. Molly Crosby the wife ran a small store from their home. Two outlaws robbed her and tied her up. Her two children at the time were small so if her husband had not shown up the three of them might have died.
Her husband chased down one of the outlaws and shot and killed him. Several years later on his way home from a mission for the LDS church he was killed by possibly memebers of the outlaws gang.
Molly Crosby then remarried John Butler and moved to Greer, Arizona where she built up a lodge and restaurant which still is in business today.
