Excerpt from Encyclopedia of Pennsylvania, Vol. 2: Biography

Unique in the history of Philadelphia was the place that was filled for many years by the late Captain John G. Crox ton. Since 1872 he had been identified with the business interests of the city, and soon after becoming established there his abilities came to be recognized so that his services were much in demand in matters pertaining to the civic welfare, and although he had been a prominent and successful manufacturer he was per haps quite as conspicuous because of his invaluable service to the various organi zations which fostered the best interests of the 'city. At the time of his death he was vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce, and for many years had been a prominent member of that organiza tion, and his judgment on matters of im portance had very often shaped the policy of the board.

Mr. Croxton was a native of Ohio, hav ing been born at Magnolia, Stark county, March 18, 1839, son of John G. And Susan (smith) Croxton. His ancestry was English. They were extensive land owners in old England, but much of the property was confiscated by the govern ment because of the fact that they had become Quakers. However, the family name was retained, and Croxton Park is still in existence near the city of Cam bridge. The family migrated to Amer ica at an early day and settled in Ches ter, Pennsylvania. Many of them fought in the War of the Revolution, some having taken part in the battle of Ger mantown, where Samuel Croxton was killed.

Mr. Croxton was educated in the gram mar schools of Ohio, and before the war broke out had received an appoint ment to West Point, but at the call to arms he was one of the first to enlist. He was mustered in in September, 1861.
