Kram, Cram, Crum & Crume of Pennsylvania & Virginia

  of 18

I’m researching Philip Crume, born 9 Aug. 1724, a son of Daniel and Elizabeth (Brook) Crume. (#1)

Philip Crume’s neighbors in Virginia included Henry Crum and Hans Jacob Koger / Coger, who married Lucinda Crum. Jacob Coger was born in Germany in 1710, immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1728 and died in Virginia in 1783. (#2)

Was Henry Crum the same person as Henry Cram, a 34-year-old German who immigrated in 1731 on the Britannia, sailing from Rotterdam to Philadelphia? (#3 & 4)

Hans Jacob Coger and Henry Crum purchased land in St. Mark’s Parish, Orange County, Virginia, on the same day in 1740. (#5)

Philip and John Crume are mentioned in the same deed in Augusta County, Virginia, in 1749. (#6)

Hans Jacob Coger and Henry Crum’s son John are mentioned in the same record pertaining to the settlement of John Windlekite’s estate in Augusta County, Virginia, in 1752. (#7)

Philip Crume was a resident of Beckford Parish, Dunmore County, Virginia, in 1767 and of Beckford Parish, Shenandoah County, Virginia, in 1779. Shenandoah County was known as Dunmore County between 1772 and 1778. (#8)

Henry Crum’s widow Ann was a resident of Beckford Parish, Dunmore County, Virginia, when she wrote her will on 23 May 1775. (#9)

(#1) A family Bible, printed in 1759 and transcribed in “Old Southern Bible Records,” by Memory Aldridge Lester (Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1974), pp. 95-96. The names Daniel and Elizabeth (Brook) Crume don’t appear on a photocopy of the family record made in 1988, but that part of the paper may have crumbled away.
