JOHN CROMER, b 2 Apr 1758 in Lancaster Co, PA, settled in Harrison Co, IN in 1829 with his second wife, SOPHIA WHISMAN, and several children. He lived for a period in Rockingham Co, VA, probably with his first wife, BARBARA BRUBAKER and married Sophia there on 13 oct 1803. In 1805 the family moved to Laurel Co, KY. Several children remained in Laurel Co, KY and Rockcastle Co, KY, including my direct ancestor, Joseph Cromer and his wife, Mary Linville.
John's children that I am aware settled in Indiana:
By Barbara Brubaker:
GEORGE CROMER, b abt 1798 in Rockingham Co, VA, d abt 1841. Married JANE WALKER abt 1841 in Washington Co, IN.
John Cromer married Evaline Wilson
William L. Cromer

MARTIN CROMER, b abt 1810 in Laurel Co, KY and d Apr 1839 in Harrison Co, IN. Spouse unknown.
Henry D. Cromer, b 1 Sep 1826 in Harrison Co, IN and d 16 May 1877 in Jackson Co, OR
MARTHA CROMER, b abt 1813 in Laurel Co, KY
and d abt 1838 in Indiana. Married Hanson Hislop on 5 dec 1833 in Harrison Co, IN.
CHARITY CROMER, b abt 1816 in Rockcastle Co, KY. Married Harvey Wilson on 18 Sep 1837 in Harrison Co, IN.
I also believe that several of the children of GEORGE CROMER, b 3 Jun 1788 in Lancaster Co, PA, and d 10 Dec 1877 in Clear Spring, Washington Co, MD, also settled in Indiana.
This George Cromer was probably the nephew of my John Cromer, possibly the son of Frederick Cromer, Jr. George married ANNA MARIE RUMMEL abt 1810 in PA.
