PANB (Provincial Archives of New Brunswick) has basic info on a land grant to Jeremiah Crossman (made with several others) in July 12 1788. The individuals are:
Geldart, John 215 acres Smith, Charles 210 acres Smith, James Jr. 207 acres Smith, Jams Sr. 1421 acres Smith, Lewis 225 acres Crossman, Jeremiah 164 acres
Who are these people? Well, Suzanne Govang (Gauvin) Crossman married Charles Smith. James Sr is his father and James Jr and Lewis are his brothers. John Geldart is his brother in law who married Martha (Mattie) Smith (daughter of James Sr.). Jeremiah Crossman enters this family group as the teenage son of Suzanne Govang (Gauvin) who was previously married to Robert Crossman. I have seen a birthdate of approx 1772 for Jeremiah, which would make sense in the context of the relatively small acreage here.
