About Our Family Research

Beginning prior to the Revolutionary War, the Croghans (along with many varied spellings) have immigrated to the United States, Canada and Austrailia, seeking freedom in all ways of their lives.

As soldiers they fought with the upstart Minutemen, then fought in the War of 1812. Then they went on to become Indian Agents, Explorers, Surveyors and Appraisers, Farmers, and Teachers. One of them married Lucy Clark, sister to John Rogers Clark, and took a trip across the country to the West coast and back. Some went West to Iowa, and fought in the Civil War as volunteers in the Greybeard regiments. One charged the enemy with Terry Roosevelt's Rough Riders in Cuba. From then on there was at least one Croghan in every war thereafter. (Including a couple in Mexico)!! Freedom of choice was very important.

Some of the other players included the Doyles, Pouders, Howes, Guddes, Slawik's, Ponds, Behrens, Courtneys, Howes, Darlings, Ernsts, Allmans, Simons. And many, many more.
