It appears that your Timothy had 2 wives (according to my source). The first one was Elizabeth Kimball by whom they had your ancestor James. All of Timothy's other children were by an unnamed 2nd wife. If this is not accurate then there's more digging to be done.

Timothy's father was Josiah (son of Benjamin, son of William, son of Joseph, son of deacon William Crocker of Barnstable) b. April 17, 1760; died Oct 13, 1846 Pawlet VT, who married Sarah Tobey Feb 21, 1788 (she was dau of John Tobey and Mercy Howes and was born Aug 2, 1763 Sandwich MA, died May or July 26, 1847 in Pawlet VT). According to Bible records, their children were:

Benjamin b. July 5, 1789, who married first Rebecca Wilcox, second Rebecca Estey
James b. May 17, 1791, married Emma Lane Oct 2, 1823
Joseph b. Aug 27, 1792, died Nov 21 1795.
Thomas b. Nov 25, 1793, married Mary Hooker Dec 15, 1814
Sarah b. Oct 15, 1795, married Robert Wilson Jan 22, 1816 or 1818
John b. May 30, 1797, married Ardelissa Dryer Dec 4, 1821
Mercy b. Mar 25, 1799, died May 29, 1801
Timothy (your ancestor)
Betsey July 6, 1804 died July 30 1828 single
Ezra b. March 8, 1806, married Julia Curtis April 8, 1828
Eliza born June 15, 1809, died Oct 9 1828 single.

Benjamin (father of Josiah) was born Mar 20, 1720 and died Feb 27, 1785 in Barnstable. He married Bathsheba Hall June 15, 1747 (dau of Joseph Hall and Mary Faunce) who was born July 5, 1719 and died July 4, 1808 in Barnstable.
Their children born Barnstable were:

Joseph b. April 15, 1748, married Mary Hinckley April 22, 1770
Benjamin b. Sept 17, 1749 married Deliverance Childs Oct 8, 1778
Timothy b. Oct 3, 1751 married Bethiah Hatch Sept 20 1781
Abigail b. Nov 9 ,1753
Bathsheba b. Nov 11, 1755
Peter b. June 11, 1758 married Hannah Young Mar 28 1791
Josiah (above who married Sarah Tobey).

the earlier Crocker branches in Barnstable are very well documented and I bet you could find Benjamin's earlier family on line in various places.

hope this helps!
