John Croom's web page has a "wanted" section really it is a Do you know... section. In that section is A Elizabeth Croom, Greene Co., an "Irishwoman," married 24 Aug 1769 William Maxwell II b 1749 Ireland. Later moved to Duplin co NC.

Where is you citation from? I looked quite abit for the Croom name and never came up with any one having that surname. Croom and Macroom are towns. Croom is the english spelling of the gaelic Cromadh. The word roughly mean bent or crooked. Macroom was named after a bent oak tree in the market square. Your entry might mean woman of Croom not as a surname. I am interested to know where your entry came from and is that the complete entry.
