Johannes Creveling, Sr. is the common ancestor of all who have the surname Creveling. Johannes Creveling, Sr. was born Johannes Kriebeling in the Westerwald Region in or near Maxsain Germany. After his arrival in America, the Kriebeling name was anglicized to Creveling. In 1755, he settled on a 270 acre plantation purchased from John Bassett in Jugtown (now West Portal), Hunterdon County, NJ. The original Creveling homestead and cemetery are located there. John Bassett, one of the earliest pioneers of the region, settled the original tract and had possession of it in 1735. The will of Johannes Creveling, Sr. dated August 4, 1780, valued his estate, which included 2 slaves, at 800 pounds. Johannes and Eva Loecher Creveling, Sr., were the parents of twelve children. They had at least 80 grandchildren. They were the great-grandparents of about 560 children. The final resting place of Johannes and Eva Creveling, Sr., the Creveling Family Burying Ground in West Portal (formerly known as Jugtown), Hunterdon County, NJ, was restored in 2007. It was rededicated on July 31, 2007. Creveling descendants from across America were present at the ceremony and reception that followed.

I am a child of the 10th child Jacob of the original Creveling family. I believe that would make Johannes my 5th great grandfather. I am extremely proud of my name and family.
