Hi, all!

Please forgive my group email--I have been working on my KY, WVA, VA Crum family genealogy for many years (since a high school project) --well before the invention of the Internet!! And I've had, for a long time, our line of Crum's back through Adam III,. Adam II, and Adam I. As you can imagine this is no small feat. Especially as each child in each generation named one son Adam--at least for a while!
(So there were many Adam Crum cousins!)

So I have:

Shutta Crum, me
Melvin Crum, b. 1925 (living)
Benjamin Crum, (1886-1958)
John Wesley Crum, (b. 1862)
Adam Crum, III, (b. ABT 1843)
Adam Crum, II, (b. ABT 1806)
Adam Crum, I, (from pension app.ABT 1758.)

Beyond this "S. Six" (and by reference, Mr. Shockley) lists . . .

Wilson Crum, (b. ABT 1736)

Then "S. Six" continues with . . .
Anthony Crum (b. ABT 1719 in Germany)
Johann Anton Krumholz (b. ABT 1698)
Johann Krumholz (b. ABT 1674).

I was wondering if anyone could let me know what documentation/other information was used to go from Adam I to Wilson? And from Wilson to Anthony--Johann Anton--Johann?

Also, I found Jim Crum's posting on Rootsweb as to the Crum immigration very enlightening. My question is which Anton (Anthony) is the one cited above?

The Anthon that came over on the ship Edinburgh on Oct., 2nd 1753 was reportedly 40 years of age--making his birthday about 1713. IS this the one claimed by "S. Six" ( and Ferris B. Crum in his book)? Could be . . .
birthdates/ages recorded on ship manifests may not be exact. And this is close to 1719.

Or, as Jim makes a point, he thinks this is NOT the one that went to Winchester VA. As this Anton's will was probated in PA in 1765. (NOT VA.)

So . . . is our Anthony the other one? The one that came over on the ship Jeneffer, on Nov. 5, 1764? Seems late to me (and Adam, I, would have been born in Germany?) This Anthony had a son born in Philadelphia in 1767.

Or . . . is there another Anthon?

Or, would a will have been probated in a state other than the one where the person died? Could that first Anthon from the ship Edinburgh still be mine?

I know this is very confusing and difficult to sort out . . . I would appreciate any help you can give as to sources.

(And . . . what's with Adam,I's various birthdates? It's all over the place! Did he really live to be 95? In the 1850 census he claims to be 80 (and blind) making his birthday 1770. In various other census filings he claims to be the same age as Barbara(y) Horn(e), his wife. (born in abt. 1775). In his pension application for the Revol. War he claims to be 77 in 1834, making his birthday about 1758/59--which is what I have listed). What gives? Any ideas? I can see being a few years off . . . but as many as 12 or 13 years in the 1850 census?)

Thank you all for your time and patience!

Hi...this is all that I have on the Crum side. I see you have Barbara Horn/Adam Crum, and that is part of my line. i wish I could help you more. I have 2 Wilson Crum's in my database. One is the son of Anthony (1713) and Gertraut and shows him the father of Adam Crum, born 1756. I show no date of birth for this first Wilson.

The second Wilson Crum that I have is son of Michael and Vashti Jarrell Crum and was born in 1842. I have nothing else on him, no spouse nor children. this is my direct line. Actually, these two lines are my lines, I just havne't linked them together as yet.

If any of this is helpful to you, that is good. another site for Crum information is the Jarrell website thru Rootsweb, if you havnet been there yet. The Crum family is highly active in that family as well.

Hi Bonnie,
I just need the last piece of documentation to join Daughters of the Americn Relvoution, DAR. That is proving Frederick Crum born 1798, is Adam Crum son. Can you help me? I have Nancy Crum is Fredericks Crum daughter married to William Marcum. Listing Frederick as a witness and I have Frederick Crums' marriage to Sally Crisp a certified copy of the Bond and Marriage from the Courthouse. I also have Adam Crum's Revoluntionary War Records, but nothing proving he is the father to my Frederick Crum. I could not find a will or anything connecting the two. Do you have any suggusting written Documentation on how I would connect the two Frederick as a son to Adam & Barbery Horne Crum? I need to know if Frederick devoriced Sally and married to Nomie Salmons or did he die in 1839? Do you know where Frederick Crum died and why only Sally and Ancel Crum
(oldest son) where listed on the marriage bond ad License to marriage?
Thanks for helping me, Wanda

Found Adam Crum in 1810 census for Floyd Co., KY with 4 persons in household, under age of 10, 2 under 16, 1 under 20, and 1 under 45; 1 female under 10, 1 under 16, 1 under 40.
Found Henry Crum (next door?) with 3 under 10, 1 under 16, 1 under 45, 4 females under 10, and a1 under age 40.
The following taken from a website online:

Adam Crum b. 1756 d. 1851 m. Barbara Horne. Adam was in the Revolutionary War and in his Abstract states he was born in Augusta Co. VA and is of German parentage. There is some thought that he was actually born in PA. His wife Barbara Horne was born in PA
Where was Adam over the years? Well according to census records in 1810 & 1820 state he was in Floyd Co. KY. The next census record found mentioning Adam was for 1850 Wayne Co. WVA listing Adam being 80 born in PA and being blind. Barbara was also with him at age 75. The abstract mentioned above was filed for in 1834 in Lawrence Co. KY.
