In 1904, Crossley was on the Board of the "Worsted Mills Board" (Bucks County Gazette, Bristol PA.  14 Jan. 1904)

Crossley and his son, Harris were the ones that ran the "Clear Springs Worsted Mill" that made fine wool for suiting.  During WW ! and then again for WW II Harris made a cheaper grade for the Army blankets.
