JOSEPH CROMER , born 1805 in Rockingham Co, VA and died between 1864-1869 in Rockcastle Co, KY. With him is his wife, MARY LINVILLE, born 25 Jul 1810 in Virginia and died after 1884 in Rockcastle Co, KY. I descend from the Cromers of Rockingham Co, VA. My ancestor, John Cromer, b 22 Apr 1758 in Lancaster Co, PA, married Sophia Whisman in Rockingham Co. on 13 Oct 1803. The family moved on to Rockcastle Co, KY and then John eventually settled in Harrison Co, IN. My immediate line through his son, Joseph Cromer, remained in Rockcastle Co, KY. John Cromer's brother, Martin Cromer, b abt 1750 in Lancaster Co, PA, and his wife, Magdalena Horst, remained in Rockingham Co, VA. I believe there are a number of Martin's descendants still in the county.
