Grayson family


Thomas Crocker

History of Paris, ME: Its settlement to 1880 Lapham & Maxim. There is a Thomas Crocker who immigrated to Norway, ME in 1809, along with George Bridgham. Very likely that the Thomas Crocker from the 1860 census in Paris is this one.   

See his image, a picture of his house, and his parlor.  All pictures are from a book titled, Maine, A History, Centennial Edition, Biographical which was published by The American Historical Society in 1919.  Thomas Crocker was the second son of Roland and Mehitable (Merrill) Crocker and was born in North Conway, New Hampshire, April 14, 1788.  He moved to Paris, Maine and took a job as a clerk in the store of Increase Robinson.  He married (1) Clarissa Stowell and (2)Almira Davis.  He was the father of nine children.  They are named in the biography, along with the names of their spouses and, sometimes, the names of the grandchildren.  Pictures rescued and restored to the family by Elaine Kaufman.

His will and other details of his life are included in a genealogy compiled by

Alice Hoyt (?) Foster (?)

Her middle and last names are marked with question marks in the
Crocker Family Genealogy, James Russell Crocker, 1952.

Other genealogies list her as just Alice Hoyt,
born 1615 in Barnstable, Massachusetts.  Most of these

However, New England was not settled by Europeans until
the Mayflower arrived in 1620, making a 1615 birth
place of Barnstable, MA unlikely for Alice (unless
she is Native American).

A much more thorough citation, which also indicates that the name is either Hoyt or Foster, was listed by Sharen Neal, and is found
