CROSSLEY - Rochdale/Todmorden to Boston, Massachusetts

Greetings:

On January 2003 I posted the following the RootsWeb Message Board, re the CROSSLEY Board... "Per the 1881, 1891 and the 1901 British Census Great Grandmother Mary Alice (nee CROSSLEY) GOODEY's mother, my Great Great Grandmother was Elizabeth, born c.1840 in Twiston, Lancashire. Mary Alice's (born Walsden c.1865/6) siblings were - Annie (born Cranshaw Booth c. 1863); Abraham (born Walsden c. 1868); John A. (born Walsden c. 1872); Tom (born Walsden c. 1873); Elizabeth E. (born Walsden c. 1876); and Josiah (born Walsden c. 1878)."

To date I have discovered more information regarding three of Great Grandmother Mary Alice (nee CROSSLEY) GOODEY's younger brothers, my Great Granduncles, John A., Tom and Josiah.

All three immigrated to the United States -

-- John A. CROSSLEY, 1893 (or 98) aboard the SS Cephalonia. Per the 1910 US Census he was living in Quincy City, Norfolk, MA. He was employed in the wholesale egg market.

-- Tom CROSSLEY, 1903 aboard the SS Ivernia. Per the 1910 US Census he was living in Lowell City, Middlesex, MA. He was employed in the textile industry.

-- Josiah CROSSLEY, 1914 aboard the SS Franconia. Per the 1920 US Census he was living in Malden City, Middlesex, MA. He was a packer in a rubber factory. (It appears that according to the 1901 UK Census he was the only one living in Littleborough, Lancashire, England with his mother, my Great Great Grandmother Elizabeth. I'm guessing that she must have passed away before he emigrated to the USA in 1914.)

I definitely would like to be in touch with any CROSSLEY or CROSSLEY connection who may have the above-mentioned ancestors in common... (This would be my mother's mother's mother's branch of my family tree...)
