Crossey's from Glenavy

Hi folks,
I'm tracking this family/families.
Me - my father Edward (1930-74), his father James (c1873-1932), his father Edward (c1815-1887) married Mary Ann DONNELLY.
James had several siblings,Patrick (1862-1937), John (1864-1929), Joe (1868-1948), Ann (1871),Jane (1876-1937), Margaret (Xmas Day 1878 - 1956). Of this batch the only ones to marry were Ann (m John Armstrong) and Jane (m Wm Hickland).

There was also a half brother William (c1848 - Before 1911) m Hannah Bell.
=======================
Seperate from that line of Crosseys, there is another line, which seems to be living in the same area, no obvious connection at all.
William John (1814-79) m Esther Bryan (1831 - ??)
They had
Henry (c1839), John (1841), Michael (1845) Arthur(1849), James (1852), Jane (1854), Joseph (1856), Patrick (1861), Wm (1863), Samuel (1869), and possibly 4 other sons.

A lot of these children had their own families, and I can track down generations thru Arthur, Michael, John and Jane at least.

=======================================
The bottom line, can anyone provide info on either of these Crossey families, and especially can anyone make the connection between Edward (1815-87) and William John.

=========================================

It's hard to belive that there are 2 seperate lines of the one, rare enough surname, living in the one parish district without a direct link, but I'm sure stranger things happen.
