my great-grandfather was named phillip jacob croissant. the family legend says that phillip left europe one step ahead of the law date unknown. on the boat coming over he joined up with my great-grandmother marie sonn. she was on the run from her husband and kids in france. she took the name croissant although she and phillip were never married as far as i know. marie was pregnant by the husband in france - that child became my great-uncle george croissant. phillip and marie also had two other children - herman and marie who was my grandmother. grandmother marie married francis bloss. their children were dorothy bloss halbert, francis bloss, marie bloss moroney and eleanor bloss hook. marie bloss moroney was my mother. she married william moroney my father. their children were john francis moroney (deceased) and me. a cousin of mine has a picture of phillip jacob croissant taken after his death - supposedly the only picture ever taken of him. I would love to learn more about this part of my family history - unfortunately i don't have a computer. if you want to contact me, my address is catherine wester, 2736 cambridge apt 13, st louis mo 63143 or call me at 1-314-781-6972
