Hi ! It's good to see someone read my message! My grandfather was Andy Axel Croon, b. 1882, m. Ada Anna Groman, Denver CO, c. 1920. No one knows the background of my grandpa. He told stories that he and his family were from Sweden, and that their name was originally Krohn but that they changed it to "Americanize" it when they got to the U.S. So far I have not been able to verify this. Anyway, our family have been Croons, in Colorado and California, at least since the early 1900s. I am trying to identify my grandfather and his parents' places of birth, etc. Once I get that, I can search their origins in Europe, whether in Sweden, Germany, or Netherlands, as you say.
I appreciate the information that Croon is probably not an Anglicized version of Krohn. This question of the names further complicates my search.
If you think my Croons might be connected to yours, I would appreciate hearing from you.
May I ask you why you were reading the Krohn forum if your family are Croons? Just curious! I'm trying to get a Croon forum added.
