Oscar Crosby was born about 1815 in Virginia. He was a servant in the home of William Crosby, a wealthy plantation owner and member of the LDS Church. He was most trustworthy, and, when the personnel of the first company was chosen, William Crosby received permission for his colored servant Oscar to secure a piece of ground in Salt Lake, plant crops, and make ready for the Crosby family who planned to arrive in 1848. It is known that he faithfully carried out is master’s wishes. Oscar later accompanied Mr. Crosby to San Bernardino Valley, California, to help establish a Latter-day Saint colony there. As California was a free state, he, along with other Negroes who went there, was liberated. He died in Los Angeles in 1870.
