Edward was the oldest of ten known children born to Robert Crossett and Mary Savage of Rutland and New Salem, Massachusetts.
His father was born in Ireland, though the family originated in Scotland. He was the "Edward Crosier", son of Robert, baptized in Rutland, but the baptismal date was not given, other than in the group from 1742 to 1749.
While Edward was an infant, the family moved from Rutland to New Salem, and this is where all of Edward's siblings were born.
Edward was married in Shutesbury, Mass. on 8 February 1774 (intention 25 January) to Elizabeth Cady, the daughter of Samuel Cady and Elizabeth Winter of Shutesbury.
Edward appears in the 1790 census for Shutesbury (then in Hampshire Co., MA) and on the 1800 census for Hampshire Co. Sometime after 1800 the family left Massachusetts and went north to Duxbury, Vermont. The entire family was likely in Vermont by 1807 when the son Jason married that year in Waterbury.
Edward appears on the 1810 census in Duxbury (then in Chittenden Co.), VT.
Edward and Elizabeth had nine children whose births were recorded in Shutesbury, Mass.
