oil of chief sitting bull by artist cross
Did mister H H Cross murder members of his family, or was there another artist by the name of Cross?Seems highly unlikely. I shall be in possesion of a Sitting Bull by a Cross soon

Chief Spotted Elk (aka Chief Big Foot) of Wounded Knee 1890
Henry Cross allegedly painted my great great grandfather. I'd like to correspond with someone familiar with the details of this particular painting. I've seen a postcard which labels him as a Hunkpapa (He was Minneconjou) but which states he was the leader of those killed at Wounded Knee. I'd like more details please... if someone would be kind enough to contact me. Thank you. Calvin

Connecting to Roots
My grandfather was Richard M. Cross. My mother and aunts have spent a lot years admiring their heritage through a deep understanding given to them by their father. I can see from this forum that my great,great,grandfather touched by brushstroke were not just his families. My mother has collected a small room full of information for herself and sisters in hopes of discovering a deeper connection to her roots. I think that one of the greatest gifts I could give her are the little pieces of the puzzle, the pieces that she does not already know through correspondence with the extended family she is aware of. Sometimes unveiling the tiniest bit of history gives the old world we live in a new meaning. At some point I intend to honor the random pieces of the past that I have gathered and give them to my mother and aunts when the time is right. I would love to start corresponding with anyone who has been touched by her great-grandfathers passion for capturing the great moments of life and welcome even the smallest tales.

Henry H. Cross
Henry Cross was my great great uncle. My mother was a Cross (thus my middle name). I know a little about Henry, but would like to learn more and would be happy to correspond. My cousin David Cross met Stastia in the 1970's when he was researching Henry, but David passed away several years ago. Would be interested in any books done or in progress on Henry.

Henry Cross correspondence
I am writing an article on the painters around Buffalo Bill Cody in his Wyoming years. I would like to hear from Russ Barrett about that scrapbook with the letters between Cross and Cody. I would really like to read them.


Henry Cross
There are several photos of Stastia Cross and her husband Jim Carry on the website of the Glenbow Museum in Calgary Alberta.
-Use STASTIA as a keyword
-Do a second search using JIM CARRY as your keyword

The museum also has the fonds of this couple.

Henry Cross

Can anyone tell me whether Henry Cross every signed with a symbol and if so where I can see an example? I have a painting that I believe may be by him and I am trying to identify the symbol.

H.H. Cross
I am currently researching the life and works of Henry H. Cross for a book I hope to write. His brother, Ferdinand was a renown stone carver. I grew up near the place where they spent the last years of their lives and created some of their best work.
I am most interested in contacting Russ Barrett who has submitted to this discussion page. Anyone else with questions or information about this artist is welcome to contact me. I have alot of data collected on H.H. Cross. I am interviewing a relative in the next two weeks (July '08) PLease, HELP! Thank you.

Drunken bears
Did HH Cross paint pictures of bears? i have seen an old photograph of drunken bears similar to Beard's "The Bear Dance." Cross' name is printed on the picture.

Henry Cross
I would like to communicate to obtain information about Henry Cross my great-great grandfather.

I have a large scrap Book that Stastia Cross made (H.H.Cross Daughter) while she traveled throughout the western US with her dad. It spans many years and is full of photographs of her father, letters from Buffalo Bill, stamped, signed documents. It even includes the LAST sketch H.H. Cross did just before he passed away, as Stastia's hand written notes describe. So many one of kind, never before seen items its like a story book of all they did, and friends they had. I am happy to share knowledge if anyone has questions about it. Russell

Chief Tall Bull By H.H. Cross
I'm a direct descendant of Chief Tall Bull, Cheyenne Chief. Leader of the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers.
H.H. Cross had met my great great great grandfather on the great plains in 1860s.
It must have been an extraordinary encounter for Cheyenne Chief Tall Bull to allow a stranger to paint him.
I like to correspond with a family descendant of H.H. Cross.
