Thanks to Charlie C. for the link to "The History of Pelham, Massachusetts: from 1738 to 1898 Includung the Early History of Prescott" by Charles Parmenter. The ages of the enlisties may be inaccurate but the dates of the French and Indian War should be intact. Pages 341-345.

Charlie wrote: The name "Halifax" came from Lord Halifax who's title came from the Halifax Parish in England, there is a line of Crozier/Croysers that live there still..
In the 1980's Charlie's parents went to the Canadian maritines in seach of Crosier relatives, They found Croziers in P.E.I. but no one that they could identify as verifyable relatives. This was their first introduction to the Scotish ancestry and Crosier association with the Armstrong Clan.
The husband of Arthurs's second cousin Mary Read, Charles Morris was a major player in the Briish settlement of the Halifax, N.S. area.
