Retired Merchant and Stock Broker --
Once Owned Stores in Denver and Texas

Special to The New York Times. Cedarhurst, L.I., Oct. 17. -- Theodore Crohn, retired merchant and stock broker, died last evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Moses L. Roth, 28 Spruce Street, at the age of 86. Healthy and active, Mr. Crohn was stricken suddenly with a heart attack and died before a physician could be summoned.

Early last week he returned from a trip to Detroit, where he passed a month at a son's home, and last Thursday he observed his eighty-sixth birthday, playing contract bridge at night.

Arriving in New York when he was a boy from his birthplace in Germany, Mr. Crohn witnessed the Civil War draft soldiers training in what is now Central Park. Shortly after the war the oil boom that was starting in Oil City, Pa., attracted him to that place, and subsequently he went West, first settling in Denver and later in Rockdale, Texas. In both places he established stores. While in Texas he married the late Leah Baum of New York.

Soon after his marriage he again journeyed to New York and bought a seat on the Consolidated Stock and Petroleum Exchange, which later became the Consolidated Stock Exchange. He was a trader for forty-three years, relinquishing his membership during the World War, prior to the closing of the Exchange.

Mr. Crohn was one of the founders and president for several years of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, East Eighty-fifth Street. He is survived by six sons and five daughters.

The funeral will be held at 10:30 o'clock tomorrow morning at the residence. Burial will be in Union Field Cemetery.
