Re: Robert Croan, Guilford Co., NC, 1780
I went to the genealogy library this evening and looked again at the microfilm record of the court minutes for Guilford County, 1794, which shows Sarah Choron as an administrator of the estate of Thomas Stewart.
It is clearly "Choron" and nothing else.She also appears in the 1794 tax list as head of household as "Choron."If this is pronounced "Core-own" then saying it quickly, it could definitely be heard as "Croan" or "Crone."
I'm going to Search for a Robert Cohorn or Crone or Croan and see what else I might be able to find.
I forgot to search for a similar name in the estate records but wonder if Sarah Choron was the widow of Robert Croan.I'll check next time I'm at the library.
