|My name is Grace (Cronin) Schmitt, daughter of a New Mexico family, married to a California native. Our maternal lines both quickly slide by to Colonial New England, but not our male lines. His goes to Kansas, and then to Germany.|
My Cronin line goes from California, to Arizona and New Mexico, to Iowa, and then tends to disappear. The Cronin line, itself, goes to Ireland, but the Bishop and Grove(s) lines have such common given names the next steps have not revealed themselves, despite 40 years of looking.
