Jeremiah was born in 1772. He received a grant of land in 1788 along with his step-grandfather, his step-father, his half-brothers and his half-sister's husband.
He was enumerated in 1851 with the family of his son James, including James' wife Ann (nee Joney) and their first three children, Sarah, James and Eli.
He passed away after 1851.
Jeremiah was enumerated in the 1851 Census, which took place in 1851 In New Brunswick. So his death must have occurred after the Census was taken.
Info from Joan Wood of Boston: New Brunswick Land Grants: The Crossman who shows up on the July 12 1788 Land Grant in Westmoreland is most likely the oldest son of Robert Crossman and Suzanne Govang (Gauvin). His name actually was Jeremiah Crossman.
Robert Crossman died before 1783 possibly around 1780. His widow, Suzanne Govang, married Charles Smith, who was the son of James Smith Sr. Here are the people on the grant with their acreage:
James Smith, Sr. 1421 acres James Smith, Jr. 207 acres Lewis Smith 225 acres Charles Smith 210 acres John Geldart 215 acres Jeremiah Crossman 174 acres
James Sr is the patriach of the family - father of Charles and father in law to the remarried Suzanne Govang. James Jr. and Lewis are his other sons. John Geldart is a son-in-law, married to Mattie Smith. Jeremiah is Suzanne's oldest son (by Robert Crossman) and is James Smith's step grandson. (I am descended from Robt's son, Robt James Crossman, and John Geldart.)
It is this Jeremiah Crossman who married Christiana Lutes.
