Hi Linda: Here is start on what I believe is true:
Nancy Crider’s family: Nancy’s parents were Andrew Crider (1774-1856) and Christina Deboe b. 1774. These two were born in Lancaster County, Pa. but were married in Pittsylvania New Year’s Day of 1796. They had four girls: Elizabeth b. abt 1794, Sarah b. abt 1796, Nancy b. abt 1799, and Catherine b. abt 1800.
Andrew Crider’s parents were Daniel Crider Jr. (1744-1836) and Catherine Berger (1746-2/1/1839). They were from Lancaster County (Catherine might have been born in Baden, Germany) and moved to Pittsylvania. They were married about 1765 and subsequently had 10 boys and 1 girl. Their kids scattered: some stayed in Virginia, some went to Tennessee, others went to Crittenden County, Kentucky.
Christina Deboe’s father was Dr. Philip Deboe II (abt 1747-1820). Mother is unknown. Deboe had 8 children. Three “Debo” boys married in Pittsylvania in the 1790s: Abraham. Michael, and Philip. Three of this Deboe generation, Philip III (m. Eleanor Smith in 1799), Mary (m. Samuel Crider Sr. in 1807), and Sarah ( m. Coleman A. Hughey Sr. in 1811), moved to either Caldwell or Crittenden County, KY, around 1830. The 1840 Caldwell census has John and Edward DeBoe; the 1850 has Abraham age 33, John age 36, and Phillip Deboe age 48 in Crittenden County. Dr. DeBoe is reported to have been at Valley Forge with George Washington. He certainly had lived near there and was the right age. He died in Pittsylvania where he had moved around 1770. His father, Philip Deboe I, possibly a French Huguenot, arrived in Philadelphia in 1732 at the age of 20. He was married to Magdalena Bieber. The ship they came to America on may have been the “Pink John and William”.
Daniel Crider was the son of Michael Wae Crider (abt 1718-7/1761) and Catherine ____ (abt 1722-1761). They died in Philadelphia, Pa. The Crider line ends here.
Catherine Berger’s father was Jonathan (Johannes) Berger (abt 1720-abt 1790); her mother is unknown. Her father, who landed in Philadelphia in 1755 and I think went back in 1767, probably was a Mennonite from Germany. Catherine and her brother Jacob stayed and wound up in Pittsylvania. Jacob was born in Germany in 1745; he served as a Chief Wagoner in the Continental Line under George Washington. Later he became a “powerhouse” in the area. He and his wife Christianna had 14 children. He died in 1837; they are buried in Siloam cemetery and his house is presently being restored. (A Robert Dalton is also on the list of Pittsylvania veterans of the Revolution, but no Tosh or Crider names appear!) There was (is?) a village named Toshes. It is not listed in my modern atlas.
Dr. Deboe’s parents were Philip I (abt 1712-1751) and Magdalena Bieber (b.abt 1714). He was born in the Palantine, Germany. They were married in, lived in, and died in Coventry, Pa.
