Robert Croan, Guilford Co., NC, 1780
I continue my search to find more info onSarah Choron (Croan, Cohorn) who is listed as a co-administrator, with George Stewart, for the estate of Thomas Stewart who died in Guilford Co., NC, in 1794.Thomas was apparently single, and I am surmising that Sarah Choron (Croan) was a sister of Thomas and daughter of George Stewart?
Since Guilford Co. was part of Orange Co., NC, prior to 1771, I searched those records as well.Here is what else I find while searching this name:
Guilford Co., NC, land warrant records list a Robert CROAN:
May term, 1782, Guilford Co. Court:A deed from Robert CROAN to Thomas MAXWELL was proved in open court and ordered to be registered.Also, a deed from William Denny to Robert CROAN was proved in open Court and ordered to be registered.
Robert CROAN was also a chain carrier for surveyes in various land entries; one for Archibald Knight in Guilford Co. surveyed April 6, 1786; one on April 5, 1780, for a transaction by Joseph Jackson; and another on April 5, 1780 for a transaction by Ezekiel DeWeese.
DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS ROBERT CROAN?
In addition, I found records for a variant spelling of this name in the Abstracts of Wills for Orange Co., NC:

Esibal (or Isabel) COHORN married John Cates in Orange Co., NC, on 31 Oct 1791.
ANY HELP is appreciated.Thank you.
