This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James McCrosson was born in Philadelphia, PA on Oct. 8, 1852. McCrosson came to California in the 1870s. He ferried daily from his home in Berkeley to San Francisco, often in the company of artist William Keith.

He was a successful tailor until his shop burned in the 1906 disaster. He then spent time in Honolulu before returning to Berkeley. He worked there in real estate until his demise on May 8, 1926. As well as a landscape painter, he was also a poet.
