Re: 1926 BOY COURTING GIRL IS HELD NOT GUILTY IN TRESPASS CASE: Ernest Peer, 19 Years Old, Is Dismissed by Rockville Court. ARRESTED BY FATHER OF ANNIE M'CROSSIN MONTGOMERY COUNTY BUREAY OF THE WASHINGTON POST, ROCKVILLE, MD Because ernest Peer, 19 years old, of the vicinity of Travilah, Md, persisted in paying attention to Annie McCrossin, 16 years old, daughter of William H. McCrossin, also of the Travilah neighborhood after he had been warned to discontinue his visis to the home, the girl’s father had the young wooer arrested on a charge of trespass. Judge Samuel Riggs, however, before whom this case was tried in the police court of Rockville, did not think the testimony showed the boy had violated the law.. Mccrossin also preferred a charge of carrying a concealed weapon against the youth, claimng that he hwas seen with a revolver and a blackjack. That charge was dismissed by Judge Riggs. .. The Washington Post (1923-1954) [Washington, D.C] 26 July 1926: 5.
This is the correct McCrossin family - Annie was born in 1910 and was the youngest daughter of William H. McCrossin and Grace Hunter McCrossin.
