About Our Family Research
Research is ongoing on John Crouch Sr. and his family. He is first located in Augusta County Va. in 1750 and is followed to NC, back to Va. and to Tygart Valley in present-day W. Va., then on to Bourbon County Ky., and finally to Ross County Ohio where he died in 1800. This material is based on currently completed research and it is expected that it will be updated from time to time as additional research is completed.
Additional research is also in progress on John Crouch, Jr., his family and descendents.
