Hosea was the youngest of nine known children born to Edward Crossett and Elizabeth Cady of Shutesbury, Mass. and Duxbury, Vermont.

He was married in Duxbury on 4 December 1817 to Persis "Piercy" HILLS, the daughter of Levi Hills and Olle Hollister of Berlin, VT.

Hosea was a farmer. He is the "Horace" Crossett on the 1820 census for Duxbury, and also appears under a variety of names on the 1830 through 1870 federal censuses in Duxbury.

He has two different death records on file at the Vermont Vital Records Division in Montpelier. One says he died 18 November 1875, aged 79y 2m 24d of heart disease. The other says he died 18 October 1875, aged 79y 1m 27d of typhoid fever. His tombstone says he died 18 Oct 1875, the date accepted for this memorial.

Hosea and Piercy had thirteen known children, eleven of whom grew to adulthood, and eight of whom married.
