This is a bit of additional information on your Crossman/McCarthy line:
Joshua Crossman was b. Saint John, N. B. as well as his son James.
Kate - m. Wallace; Will - m. McLellan; Joe- died young; James; Joshua - d. at 35 and Maggie - m. Glencross.
What does it mean when you list James (eb) Ebenezer Crossman?

This is exciting. I would love to find out more about this branch of the family tree and "Crossman Corner" near Rexton and Richibucto, New Brunswick.
This is where the trail ends for me. If I can extend it past Joshua and Margaret Crossman that would be really great.
