Crop image. It can't be this hard

I'm not new to imaging software, but I recently got a PS subscription for the purpose of editing some old family pictures.

I open a picture in PS. It has some jagged edges and a whitish band across the bottom. I select the crop tool and scribe around the part I want to keep. I hit the crop tool again or pick crop from the menu. The visual looks like the crop worked.

Next I set the canvas area bigger so I can add a border around the picture.

When the canvas size increases, the ugly bits that I cropped off are back again.

Why?

Please help.

I think this is due to when cropping you have not selected the option to Delete Cropped Pixels. Without selecting the delete option the cropped areas are merely hidden
