In Reply to: My "KrohnBuch" by Christoph Krohn of 367

Your book was mentioned in a book published by my Craun family in 1950. My book is called Craun Family in America. Roughly quoting, it just said "the new book recently written by Max Kron entitled Chronik der Sippen Krohn, Crohn, Kron, Cron, Croon may shed light on the connection between our ancestor and his Germany relatives."

For years I have been searching for your book, so thank you very much for scanning it in. However, my only German is "das ist mein haus" and "guten morgen". Can you tell me if there is anything regarding my ancestor in the book?

HIs name is Johannes Fredrick Krahn...spelling changed to Crawn and Craun within his lifetime. He went by Fredrick. We don't know his birth date, but expect it to be between 1735 and 1760. Family legend says that he first went to PA, and then MD, and finally settled in VA. I don't think he was in Pennsylvania or Maryland long, because I can't find any land records for him. The first records we have for him are in 1784 when he purchased land in Rockingham County, Virginia. It is about that time that he also started having children, the first son was named George. Then Johannes Fredrick Jr, and later Johannes Henrich. He died in 1819.

THanks so much,
