I replied off line awhile ago but never heard back. Perhaps it didn't go through. So, I tried again off- Genforum but will also respond here. Here is the information I sent.....
I am looking for ancestors of Peter Cronk and Nancy DePew (although her maiden name has not been confirmed) Cronk. Their son, Benjamin R was born in 1850 in Hainesville, NJ. He was listed on the 1850 Census as 1 month old. He married Mary Ellen Duhrone (Darrone). Mary Ellen's parents were Enon (not sure if this is correct) Duhrone (b. NJ) and Julia Ward (b. Nice, NJ). I would love to find out more about Enon and Julia. We have Mary Ellen's obituary that states she was a relative of Julia Ward Howe but we've never been able to connect the families.
Additionally, I am researching the Marvin family. Daniel Marvin died in Stillwater, Sussex, NJ, Oct 19,1882. Daniel Marvin's wife is believed to be Cornelia Brown. I have found a baptismal record for a Cornelia Brown in a Dutch church in the Walpak area. The dates look to be about right. Additionally, Daniel's father was Hendrikkus "Henry" Schoonover Marvin. Hendrikkus married Anna Van Horn ( I have a bit on her family). However, Hendrikkus' mother was Cornelia Schoonover (b. 1727, Delaware, Sussex, NJ). I don't have any other information on her other than she married Daniel Marvin (b. 1727, Colchester, CT, d. 1776, Sandyston, Sussex, NJ). I would love to know more about the Schoonover family at that point in NJ history. The Marvin family I have tons on.
While these families lived near each other at this time in NJ, they wouldn't be related until a generation later when a Marvin-Haney descendent married a Cronk in Stroudsburg, PA.
This explains all of the families except the Rosencrance query. Benjamin R. Cronk's younger brother, Julius's middle name was Rosencrance (not sure of exact spelling). The other odd thing I've noticed is that Benjamin's middle initial is R. (I don't know what his middle name was) as well as his next oldest sister's Martha. She appears in future censuses as Martha R.
Any direction you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance! Diane Krol
