Rufus Crosier

Deerfield Valley Times

April 10, 1903

One of our aged and respected citizens, Rufus Crosier, died March 26, being nearly 79. He was born and reared in Halifax, and spent here a useful life. He married Chloe Ann Stacy, who survives him. Their family numbered thirteen children, of whom all grew to maturity, and nine are still living. During the civil war Mr. Crosier was a soldier in Co. F, 16th Regt., Vermont Volunteers, and saw nine months of service for his country. In the days of his strength he had faithfully filled several town offices. He was a kind neighbor, of a sunny disposition, and always ready for active service. The funeral services were held from his home on March 28th, Rev. Mr. Reigel of Wilmington officiating.
