Mike McCrehin
The Name carsun writes "

I couldn't select a proper 'topic' so "the name" will have to do.  I finally got the death date on Mike McCrehin.  He was born in New York 1837 and I have been unable to find his parents.  Anyhow through the census I found him in Minnesota in 1900 and 1910.  In 1910 he was living with a William Hill,  his wife and 8 yr. old son.  I had spent some time in trying to find a death date for him and it finally came through" Family Search".

He died 9/5/1911 at Beltrami Co., MN.  That's where he was in 1910 census.  His name was written down as McCueun at Family Search.  I know that was him because of the Beltrami Co..  Beltrami is right next to where we live in MN.  I went to the courthouse in Bemidji to see the records.  His name was down as McCruen.  He was accidentally shot by William Hill while William Hill was shooting at a bear.  We walked through the cemetery he must have been buried at, a township cemetery, but found no marker.  He wasn't listed in the cemetery listing either.   Part of a mystery is solved.

James McCrohan's Survey - response from Timothy McCrohan (East Coast U.S.A.)
The Name Response from Timothy McCrohan to James McCrohan dated May 28, 1984.

Dear Jim,

I was very pleased to receive your letter in the beginning of April and am sorry for not responding sooner. Your project is very interesting to me and there are so many questions to ask that one doesn't know where to start. Also there is quite a bit of information to pass onto you that again it is puzzling to know where to start.  I am enclosing a draft of a "Family Tree" that a Father Clifford from Australia drew up about a year or so ago.  He came through the States in 1981 or 1982 and met with my cousin, Noreen, and myself.

James McCrohan's Survey - response from John L. McCrohon (East Coast U.S.A.
The Name Response from John L. McCrohon to James McCrohan dated May 14, 1984.

Dear Jim,

Briefly - I'm 75 - the father of Rosemary D. of Milton, Mass., and John L. Jr., of Gaithersberg, Indiana to whom you have written.  The name is a stumper to many. Before I retired the frequent response where I named myself on a business call was John Mac-What!  And I even got mail to J. McCracken.

John Jr., has two small sons - Sean and Brian, and 1'll wager you'll not hear from him.  He's not a prolific writer. Rosemary has quite a bit of family tree material however, and at one time a cousin in Canada sent her an almost incredible account.  It came from Dublin Castle - supposedly a highly authentic source. ..

Dear Jim,

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the material that you have forwarded to us about the McCrohan ancestory. Please continue to keep us on your "mailing list." As I mentioned to you, the McCrohons who live in Central Massachusetts and who spell their names MCCROHON are descendants of John and Julia McCrohon of Cahirciveen, County Kerry, Ireland whom I estimate were born sometime in the 1820's or 1830's...

Dear Jim,

Just a quick note to advise you that I received your letter of April 6, '84 which was sent to my old homestead at 278 Hamilton Avenue, Princeton, N.J. I lived there for the last 30 years or so and rented it last year when we left for Florida for the winter...

A pioneering McCrohan in the American Far West
The Name From the "American Life Histories, Manuscripts from the Federal Writers' Project, 1936-1940":

Mr. Eugene McCrohan came from Ireland to Chicago in the early 1840's and his wife Mrs. Isaballe Wilson McCrohan came from Scotland. They pioneered through all the states from Illinois to New Mexico, escaping wild animals and depredating Indians, as New Mexico seemed the wildest, that was the chosen place for settlement. The family increased several in number, Mr. Dave McCrohan was one of the younger children.

P.J. McCrohan letter to Margaretta (McCrohan)
The Name

My dear Margaretta , 

 

I am sure you are wondering who it is, but, I promised to write to you a few short years ago when you tip-toed into my shop here when you were touring Kerry.  Your big bus stopped nearby and you saw the name over the door. I will never forget how you transformed the place with your gentle smile and beauty and radiating charm. You were interested in the name. and I gave you some little information promising to write when I got some more.
