Harrison Cromer

'The History of Shelby County, Ohio', published by R. Sutton &
Co., Philadelphia 1883.


The Cromers, as far back as we can learn of them, are from Kentucky.  ABRAHAM CROMER, with his family, came from Kentucky to Miami Co., Ohio, some time prior to the war of 1812.  He served as a soldier in that war, and was one of the party who found and cared for DILBONE and GIRARD at their massacre by Indians in 1813.  He died near this place.  His wife, HANNAH CROMER, died about 1876, aged ninety-eight years.  ELNATHAN, a son of the above, was born in Kentucky in the year 1808, was brought by his parents to Miami County when a small child, and has lived there from that time to the present.  He married SARAH CAVAULT in 1832.  They raised a family of nine children. 


     HARRISON CROMER, of this township, was born in Miami County in 1834. He is the eldest son of ELNATHAN CROMER.  He is a farmer, and has made that his business through life.  In 1856 he married PHEBE A. GASKILL, of Miami County.  They have seven children, viz., LAURA P., WILLIAM H., THOMAS H., MARY A., ELNATHAN E., JOHN M., and ANNA M.  In 1868 he bought a farm in this township, to which he moved his family.  His farm is among the best improved ones of the township.  He has erected upon it fine buildings and improvements, all of which have been made by his own industry, never having inherited anything."
