Elizabeth Stone, who d. widow no age given (see her record); R Austin
says she is called his "present" wife probably meaning there was an
earlier one. R AUstin notes 2 other females shown in 1790 census, and
another daughter [see her notes in file] Pelham MA TH (p. 344) lists
him as enlisted 2 Apr 1759 ae 19 "son of John Crosier" and again on
10 Apr 1760, also ae 19. Halifax was settled from Pelham MA in 1762
or 1763. Hemenway says there were three brothers among the first
settlers (Arthur, John and Robert) One family tradition has them
coming from Montreal where they worked in a shipyard; another says
the shipyard was in Boston. Halsea Crosier says he was born in
Coleraine, Ulster, Ireland, of James and Jane Crosier, and adds that
three brothers, Robert, John and Arthur, and possibly a fourth,
Samuel, came to America from Ireland. In another record Halsea
Crosier gives the date of arrival as early as 1719, which does not
fit with Arthur's date of birth. In a third record he says Arthur and
his brothers came about 1755, went to Montreal and were
shipbuilders, coming to Halifax about 1762-3. Built house near what
is known as Morrill Knoll, about the middle of the township. After
marriage of son James, both families lived in the house. Four land
