So if you are interested in the years 1801 to 1814 I will have to later go to the library and make a copy from my print out and snail mail it.

CROMER, JOHN
Service: Revolutionary War. JOHN CROMER
TRANSCRIPT OF THE PENSION CLAIM OF JOHN CROMER FOR
HIS SERVICE IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. (Some words are inde-
cipherable and have been left blank)
State of Indiana
Harrison County
Harrison Circuit Court
On this 3rd day of October 1832 personally appeared in open court
before the Honorable John F. ----- , President and Noses Boon J.
Craven-slynn,., his ----judges of the Circuit Court afore-said in the
second Judicial circuit of said state now setting, John Cromer a
resident of Blue River Township in the county afore-said, aged 74
years, who being past duly sworn according to law doth on his oath
make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act
of Congress pas-sed June 7, 1832. That he entered the service
of the United States under the following named officers and served
as herein stated in the company commanded by capt. Hollinger in
the Rifle Regiment commanded by Col. John Hoover; he thinks it was
the 7th Regiment of Pennsylvania Militia. He states that he served
under these officers ten months in all, but in five different tours of two
months each; and the company and regiment to which he belonged
held themselves in constate readiness to go whenever called for, during
the Revolutionary War; that it was a volunteer company and regiment to
which he belonged; that he entered said service in the county of Lancaster,
Pennsylvania sometime in the Fall of 1776, the precise day not recollected;
that in these several tours they were employed in scouting the country in
different directions in the neighborhood of Philadelphia and up and down
the Delaware River to guard agaist the British shipping; that he aided in
fixing a chain in the Delaware to prevent the ships from coming up, which
was finally broken by the Redcoats; that he was at Brandywine, though
not in the battle having been sent a short time previous to the battle on a
scout-ing party. He states that he was born on the 22nd of April, 1758,
in the county of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, at which place he resided
during his ser-vices above mentioned; that he had a record of his age
until within a few years past when it was destroyed; that since the
Revolutionary War he has resided in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia,
Kentucky and that he now resides in the state of Indiana. He states that
his ------? at Amboy was destroyed soon after the chain was broken
as above stated. He states that he recollects Genls. Washington and
Wayne - he recollects one Potterfield who was an Adjutant as well as he
can recollect. This applicant states that he never received a discharge from
the service and has no documentary evidence and knows of no person
whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his said service.
He hereby relinquishes any claim whatever to a pension or annuity
except the present, and declares that his name is not on the pension
roll of -----? or in any state. Sworn to and subscribed the day and year
aforesaid. Signed: John Cromer

This statement follows the pension claim:
We, John Hancock and Harry Ott, residing in the township of Blue River
and county of Harrison and state of Indiana, hereby certify that we are
well acquainted with John Cromer, who has subscribed and sworn to the
above declaration, that he is respected and believed in the neighborhood
where he resides to have been a soldier of the revolution and that we concur
in that opinion. Sworn to and subscribed this day of the year aforesaid
Signed: John Hancock Harry Ott

The following statement was then added by the court:
And this said Court do hereby declare this opinion after the investigation of
the matter, and after ----the ----- prescribed by the War epartment, the above
named applicant was a Revolutionary soldier and served as he states, and
the court further---- that it appears to them that John Hancock and Harry -----
At this point, the copy becomes totally illegible. However, another document
called "Certificate of Pension" and dated April 9, 1833, shows that John Cromer
received $83.32 for his Revolutionary service under the Act of June 7, 1832.

Thought you might be interested in the PA part of this. It also cites references for both John and Martin, but I didn't cite these here , because as I said, they are so well established. I also found the reference for John and William Cromer as witnesses to an Augusta County wedding - William Cromer's wife's relatives. I think that that is probably not Revolutionary War John, but the one that was out in Miami County with Samuel Cromer (married in Augusta in 1809).

The search goes on. Let me know what you think. Nancy

Good to hear from you. You too Art. We've had a bit of excitment up here. I was selected to be a contestant on"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and have been in New York for three days. Didn't win any money, but got to wave and had a great time. The show airs this Thursday, December 14. Kenny, I have not forgotten to look up that obit, and plan to do that during the Christmas holidays.

As to where Michael Cromer fits in, I have nothing that ties him in to the others, but I am certain that he is a Cromer. There are Crawmers in Miami County at that time. One of the old maps lists that property as belonging to a Michael Crawmer, but I sort of discounted that because another map shows that Alcony area property belonging to Michael Cromer and all the census's show an Elizabeth Township Michael Cromer married to Miranda, so I just thought the map maker used a similiar sounding spelling of a name that was found in the area. That also happened up in Brown Township - spelling the name Cromer as Crawmer.

If I had to guess, I would say he was the son of a brother to Samuel and Abraham. There is a John Cromer - I think a different one who fought in the Revolutionary War - who signed the deed to Samuel Cromer's Elizabeth Township properly in 1819 - Maybe there's a connection there. One thing that is different about Michael Cromer is that in the 1850 census he says he was born in Virginia, but in the 1860 and later census's he says he was born in Maryland, which would have been around 1811, after the Montgomery County Va Cromers were already settled in Virginia. So, he is different, but then I think that if his origins are understood and tied in, it would only shed light on group as a whole. Where is McKendree Cemetery?

I was on-line the other day and found what I'm hoping is a very promising lead. They listed 6 Cromers as having served in the Revolutionary War. I haven't checked this out, but will try to do this also over Christmas break. The internet source, Ancestry.com, says they were born in Pennsylvania in the 1750's.

They are Daniel Cromer, John Cromer, Lodwick Cromer, Martin Cromer, Michael Cromer and Samuel Cromer. I know that in an introduction to Mary Cromer's Civil War letters, they said there may have been Cromer brothers, besides John and Martin who fought in the Revolutionary War and then came down through Maryland to Virginia, but this is the fist listing of names that I have ever seen. The references for this are as follows:

Daniel - Pennsylvania Archives - 4:465
Lodwick - Pennsylvania Archives - Series 5:3:509
Michael - Pennsylvania Archives - Series 5:7:875
Samuel - Pennsylvania Archives Series 5:7:223, 227, 247, 258-9, 261, 286-7

I skipped John and Martin because they are well documented, but let me know if you would like them also and I will send them along.

Hope everyone is well and has a Happy Holiday! Nancy
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Nancy emailed on 2/11/2001 that Michael Cromer was Micheal CRAWMER, not a part of our Cromer line.

Good morning everyone. Please help! :)

I need some help locating some property. It's a little confusing and I only
have the Atlas for Ashby Mag. District.

>From Abstract of Land Deeds:

Feb. 10, 1792
Between Charles & Dinal Wood...land on Smith's Creek....corner to said Jacob
Good and MICHAEL KINGERY......

9 October 1804
Land bought by Peter Good....dividing corner between Jacob Good and MICHAEL
KINGREY.......

12 Dec 1815
Deed with Sally Snapp nee Hupp for land she and her late husband bought
from
Peter & Christina Good. The land is on a dividing line between Jacob Good
and MICHAEL KINGREE......

1 Oct 1818
Between John Click and Elizabeth his wife.....corner to the land FORMERLY
Michael Kingree's.

Now it would appear that Michael Kingery owned this land from before 1792
until between 1815-1818. (He is on the 1785 ShenCo Census) Interestingly
enough, I can't find an abstract where Michael bought OR sold this land.
The ones recorded only show that he did own land!

Here's the confusing part! FROM ROCKINGHAM COUNTY

September 10, 1791, Listed in "Virgina Valley Records, Rockingham
Supplement". Regarding the Baptist Association Meeting, it states: Brother
James Johnston made report that himself and all the other Brethren appointed
had attended last Saturday at the North River, at the house of Michael
KINGERY, a house fixed upon by those Baptists living in that
Neighbourhood........."

R'ham Co. deed books- October 18, 1801
Michael Kingary and Margaret his wife sold land to John Cromer. Land
patented by said Michael Kingary Nov. 7, 1797. (Mik Keenery)

Where is the North River neighborhood? Is it possible Michael's land was on
the border between Shen/R'ham counties? I don't think I am dealing with two
Michael's here. Can someone please tell me where this land was? He was in
Evan Evans district for the census in 1785.

Thanks! Pam

Both Smiths Creek and North Fork run right through New Market out or
Rockingham County - they join just north of New Market. I'd say this land
was in the New Market vicinity in the southeast corner of Shenandoah County.

Bob;
I am hoping your email address is the same as one year ago when we last talked.
The Hoosier Elm Chapter in conjunction with the SAR is having a dedication of a marker for John Cromer. The dedication will take place OCT 26 at 2:00 Lou'll time at his burial site. the cemetery has been completely destroyed before the present ownership. The land owners have graciously consented to have the marker placed on their property.

All descendents of John are invited and among those who have excepted is George Williams of Fredericksburg, VA; Lois Cloyd of Georgetown, KY and Jan Sparkman of London, KY.
Immediately following this dedication there will be another one nearby. If you are interested in coming I will send you an open invitation that includes directions. Evelyn Jackson
