CROWLEY, SIMPSON, and KIMSEY. These families
are related to many people in Lane, Polk, Marion, and other Oregon counties.
The Crowleys descend from a very
famous person: Samuel Crowley who was the first person to die at the
Battle of Point Pleasant, Lord Dunsmore's War fought on October 10, 1774
located in what is now West Virginia between the Indians and the Colonials.
Samuel Crowley's records are now before a Virginia Committee who are
searching the records of the Colonial Governors. We are hoping to prove
this battle was the first battle of the Revolutionary War. We are making
a web site regarding this battle and Samuel's participation. Contact
