Birth: Jul. 4, 1820
Cuyahoga County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 17, 1907

William Crosier, son of Andrew and Catherine (McPherson) Crosier, born 4 July 1820 in Euclid, Cuyahoga, Ohio, died at his home in Milo Township, 17 July 1907, at the age of 87 years 13 days and was buried 19 July 1907 in Upper Bay Cemetery, Milo Township, Delaware County, Iowa. On 16 February 1845 in Ogle County, Illinois he married Mary Hoke.
A few years prior to his marriage he moved in 1839 to Ogle County, Illinois where he was married. He then moved the next year 1846 to Milo Township, where they settled and raised their family. Here they entered into the life of the pioneer community, leaving on it the infuence of lives of industry and integrity. Within a few months after their arrival, Reverend N. W. Bixby of Edgewood organized the First Free Will Baptist Church in Iowa at the Bay, and a church building was erected a short distance from the Crosier home. Mr. Crosier was a charter member of this organization and took much interest in its welfare. His interest in education is shown by the fact that the first school in that section of the county was conducted in his dwelling. In 1861 Mr. Crosier was chosen a member of the board of supervisors, which then contained one from each township. He continued the active life of a farmer until forced to lay it aside by failing health and advancing years.
The funeral services for Mr. Crosier took place Friday at eleven o'clock, and consisted of a brief service at his residence, where he had lived for sixty-one years, and shared life for over 62 years and 5 months with his wife, Mary, surrounded by four generations.
