History:  

NORCROSS, a city in Gorton Township developed after the Great Northern Railway came, platted in December 1881 and incorporated on February 20, 1904, received its name from Henry Allyn Norton and Judson Newell Cross of Minneapolis, proprietors of the village site. Its post office began in 1881. Norton was born in Byron, Ill., October 17, 1838; died in Minneapolis, February 3, 1906. He served in the army in the Civil War, 1861-65, attaining the rank of major; resided in Chicago until 1882, when he removed to Minneapolis. Cross was born in the state of New York, January 16, 1838; died in Minneapolis, August 31, 1901. He was a student at Oberlin College when the Civil War began; enlisted in the Seventh Ohio Regiment, and during the first year in service was promoted to the rank of captain; in 1864 was made adjutant general of the military district of Indiana. After the war he studied law and in 1875 settled in Minneapolis.
