James, could you fill me in on George and Nora Bussell Cromer from VA....I don't have then in my Cromer file? The William A. Cromer that married Elizabeth Renner on 29 May 1853 in Rockcastle Co, KY was the son of Joseph Cromer, b 1803 in Rockingham Co, VA, and Mary Linville, b 25 Jul 1810 in VA. Joseph and Mary were the founders of the Cromer line in Rockcastle Co, KY and my maternal 3rd great-grandparents.
Joseph Cromer was the son of John Cromer, b 22 Apr 1758 in Lancaster Co, PA, by his second wife, Sophia Whisman, b abt 1770 probably in VA. They were married on 13 Oct 1803 in Rockingham Co, VA. John Cromer's brother, Martin, also had moved from Lancaster Co, PA to Rockingham Co, VA and remained there. John and Sophia Cromer moved on to Laurel/Rockcastle Co, KY, and eventually settled in Harrison Co, IN, where they died.
There were also Cromers in Montgomery/Wythe Co, VA in the early 1800's which I believe were closely related also. William Cromer, b abt 1788 in PA or MD, possibly the son of Samuel Cromer, b abt 1750 in Lancaster Co, PA, and we think probably the brother of John and Martin Cromer. This William Cromer married Catherine Nevergall on 22 May 1800 in Augusta Co, VA. He died in 1809 in Montgomery Co, VA. Catherine then moved to Monroe Co, IN, along with several of her sons and families.
I would like to know what line of Cromers you are researching and compare notes!
