George Crumrine is shown on the Monroe Township, Harrison County, Ohio 1850 Census as an 84 year old farmer born in Frederick County, Maryland. He is living next door to William Wheeler Polen and his family. Nearby are John and Catherine Crumrine and Isaac Warner and his family.
I found an interesting write-up on the Internet. It is from Beers, J. H. and Co., Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania (1893). The biography is for a Boyd Crumrine and is almost 4 pages. The part I found interesting follows a paragraph describing how 30,000 German and Swiss immigrants had to sign an oath of allegiance between 1727 and 1776 in Pennsylvania. It reads:
"In this collection of thirty thousand names there are but two 'Krumreins.' On September 11, 1732, 'the ship Pennsylvania, John Stedman, master, from Rotterdam, last from Plymouth,' landed with 'seventy three males above sixteen, women and children of both sexes ninety-eight, in all one hundred and seventy one.' In this list is the name of Hans Michael Crumrein. 'On September 5, 1748, the ship Edinburgh, James Russell, master, from Rotterdam, last from Portsmouth, landed with one hundred and twenty-seven persons'; and in this list of names is that of George Lenhart Krumrein. Hans Michael Krumrein, after having resided in the neighborhood of Philadelphia until after 1741, passed westward into Northampton and finally into Centre county, where some of his descendants still live, others having passed on into Ohio. George Lenhart Krumrein went into Baltimore county, Md.; afterward, perhaps, into Georgia, returning to Maryland at a later day. In 1800 George Crumrine, a grandson of George Lenhart Krumrein, it is believed, passed from Baltimore county, Md., over the Alleghanies into the valley of the Monongahela, and settled upon a farm in East Bethlehem township, Washington county. One of his sons, Daniel Crumrine, was born upon the same farm. He married Margaret, the daughter of John Bower, Esq. The Bower family was of Swiss-German origin, and came west from Juniata Valley in 1796." The story goes on to describe the life of Boyd Crumrine, the son of Daniel. I didn't find a Margaret Bower who married a Daniel Crumrine in my Bower book, I'm sorry to say. The web address for this article is http://www.chartiers.com/beers-project/articles/crumrine-206.html.
