  1. I also have Jacob Croy in my lineage. I have visited his home place and found 2 grave markers of his children. He also shows up in the Coshocton County census of 1820 and 1830.
    I wonder if this is the same Jacob Croy in your line.

    • There are two Jacob Croys in Coshocton, both coming from the Croys in Londonderry Township, PA. One, my great-great-grandfather, via Andrew and Jacob I, and another via Mathias. Since my Jacob arrived in Coshocton Cty after 1833, I imagine your Jacob is the later. Still, the suspicion is the Londonderry Township, PA Croys were brothers (Jacob I, Mathias, John, Richard) so cousins long removed?
