Who was Mary Cromer-b.1851, Richland Co. OH?

The 1860 census Richland Co. OH shows Mary Cromer, age 9 living with my g-g-grandparents James Martin Blacksten,(ca. 1834) and wife Mary Johnston.

The Cromers and Blackstones inter-married when James' parents, Jacob Blackstone mar. Mary Cromer ( 1816) in 1834,in Richland Co. OH. In 1880, Margaret Cromer b.1814 lived with the Blackstones as a sister-in-law(sister to Mary). Both Cromer women were born PA and their mother may have been born PA or MD.

Allen Blacksten, another son of Jacob and Mary Cromer Blackstone m. Amanda Cromer, dau. of John and Eliz. Cromer, also Richland CO. OH. The 1880 census shows a mulatto grandchild, Frank Cromer,age 5 living in the John Cromer home, also Hamilton Cromer, age 24. Not sure if Frank was Amanda's child or ??? Anyway...I am trying to determine the parents of both Cromer women as well as the parents of the child Mary, age 9 in 1860.

I wonder if James Martin Blacksten, (through his mother Mary Cromer-b. ca 1816) was a descendent of one of the Martin Cromer males since he, as well as many of his descendents carry the first or middle name of Martin. Anyone recognize this family?
