Museum the New Llano Colony



Lionel Crossland

Birth:  

Description:  

Pre-Colony History:  

Family Information: He married Vivian Busick while living in the colony.  

Job in Colony: In July 1933 he was working in the bakery managed by Runa Baldwin. In October of that year he and John Dougherty were driving the ice truck to Leesville after a series of events, including the departure of Carl Van Buskirk to the Gila location and Roy McClean twisted his knee while trying to change a flat tire on his ice truck.

In 1934 he was delivering ice with Fred Busick. In August his ice truck broke down and Lee Fread had to deliver his ice. That afternoon he helped Fread haul logs from the woods. Also in 1934 he was part of a crew which went out to the hills west of the colony to cut up the tree tops that had been left by the choppers some time ago to feed the boiler.

In 1935 he was delivering ice every day of the week throughout the year. In July he and Glen Burns worked on the ice truck all night to get it in running condition for the next day's ice delivery.

In July 1936 he and Roscoe Busick relieved the situation at the power plant when they joined the "graveyard shift" there. Those old boilers were "gluttons for fuel" and there'd been a shortage of workers which had caused much trouble.

In August 1936 he returned to driving the ice truck.  

Home in Colony: In January 1937 there was a re-shuffling of homes in the colony -- Lionel and Vivian took a home that had been vacated by the Stansburys and Bill Brough took theirs.  

Other Info: In 1935 he was part of the Colony baseball team under the managership of Ernie Prudhon who claimed to have a very spirited and crackerjack team. Players included: John Dougherty, C; ??? Long, P; Cecil Thompson, 1B; Ernie Prudhon, 2B; Lionel Crossland, 3B; Milton Maki, SS; and Les Caves, Archie Ogden, and Elmer Jensen as outfielders.

In October 1935 he was nominated to be on the Board of Directors, along with (in order of nomination), Robert K. Williams, E.D. Carl, Lester Caves, Crockett Campbell, John Szpila, Harold Emery, Charles Lawrence, Chester Peecher, E.O. Joynes, Chester Page, Horace Cronk, George Hullinger, Walter Robison, "Chauncey" DuProz, Mrs. Olive Lentz, Mrs. Mabel Busick, Lionel Crossland, Charles Derleth, J.H. "Dad" Ribbing and Cy Horney. The meeting also adopted a rule permitting all resident members who had been at the colony more than sixty days to vote in the election, provided too few proxies were received to hold a regular stock holders' meeting.

Less than one fourth the required stock was represented at the Stockholders' meeting, so the colonists proceeded with the election of a new board of directors as planned. Those selected were: Robert K. Williams, E.C. Carl, Lester Caves, Crockett Campbell, Harold Emery, Chester Peecher, E.O. Joynes, Charles Lawrence, and Chester Page. Runners up were Mrs. Mabel Busick, Horace Cronk and John Szpila.

Also that month, he and Fred Busick left with the "V-8" at 3:30 pm on Friday for Mena, Ark. to bring back the effects of DeForest Sanford, who was expected to return to the colony within a week or so. About 4:30 Saturday afternoon, just 25 hours after leaving they drove up in front of the store again. "Some trip," the boys said.  

Post-Colony History: In 1940 he and Vivian were living in Washington where he worked as a laborer with poultry at a WPA Experimental Station.
