I am interested in this family because my family lived very close to them in NC. The Mecklenburg County area they lived in became Cabarrus County in 1792.
The Groners owned 3 tracts of land, one of which was adjacent to Martin Phifer's. My ancestor Jacob Crider/Krider lived on the Phifer plantation after Martin's death. Jacob's son Daniel was my ancestor. In 1799 he married Barbara Walter, who was the widow of Nicholas Walter (married about 1790, died about 1798). There is some undocumented evidence that widow Barbara was a Groner.
Mary Phifer Blackwelder was the daughter or grandaughter of Martin Phifer, Sr.
Elizabeth Walter might have been related to Nicholas Walter.
Jacob Crider and Jacob Groner were both associates of Joseph Shinn.
Do you have any evidence of a Barbara Groner marrying a Nicholas Walter circa 1790?
Do you have any evidence of other relationships between the Groners and Crider/Kriders?
Can you please send me Donald Duncan's email address, and/or forward this to him?
