Researching Romaine-Crosskill diggers

| April 2007

Greetings from a Brit in Costa Rica! I am trying to research the Romaine-Crosskill digger, which was one of the first rotary tillers, built in 1857. Was Romaine and/or Crosskill an actual person - or only a type of rotary tiller? If Romaine and/or Crosskill were the inventors/developers, can anyone please direct me to a short biography? Any help readers can give would be highly appreciated.
