Age 56 years, 7 months, 27 days is the age on his grave marker which also says he was born in Magherafelt, County Derry, Ireland. He left Liverpool, England on the ship "Columbia", arriving in New York on July 24, 1850.
He had been hauling rock from the Tozier Mine to the mill in Murphys and was paid for the work. Returned to Altaville with Robert Walsh and each then took his separate road home. Crossett never arrived so his wife, who was the sister of Walsh, went to her brother's home and they searched for him, finding his body on the road in his wagon. The inquest, performed at the scene, found he died from a injury.
A month later, at the request of his wife, he was exhumed and Dr Wm. Murphy and Dr Baker did another autopsy, finding a bullet in his head. Isaac Bradley was later arrested for the murder but the case was dismissed for lack of evidence.
His 1st wife was Ellen Louisa Walsh who he married on 11/14/1872 in Sutter Creek. Ellen died in 1874 and Thomas married her younger sister Teresa 11/16/1878 when he was 46 and she was 18. Their children were Robert Samuel born 9/15/1879, Ella T. born 10/1/1880, and Thomas John born 12/4/1882
