RE: Chrisawn/Crisawn Family
Date and time has been set for a memorial stone dedication and service for Andrew Cresson (1750-1824) and his wife Lucy Sims Cresson (1761-1843). Andrew's service in the Revolutionary War will finally be acknowledged and I hope each of you can attend. The event will be at Snow Hill Cemetery in McDowell County on Saturday, July 20th at 400 pm. The Watauga Chapter of The Sons of the American Revolution and the Greenlee Chapter of The Daughters of the Amercican Revolution will be participating and historian Michael Hardy will be speaking about Andrew. I have worked on this for several years and hope it will be a memorable event. Any questions, Please let me know and I would enjoy knowing how many of you may be coming. Thank you !! Paul

Naomi's father was John Cresawn who lived from about 1785 until after 1860. he died somewhere in Woodlawn in McDowell County.

Andrew Cresson father of John 1750-1824 buried in McDowell County

The father of Andrew was either Peter or more likely Abraham Cresson. He died in what is now Srry County NC.

The father of Abraham and and Peter was Johua Cresson II 1690-1790

Father of Joshua Cresson II was Joshua Cresson 1659-1690

Pierre Cresson was father of Joshua, immigrant to US 1609-1679... His family was from France

RE: Renfro/Sigmon
Thanks for the information, Jennifer. If you ever change your mind, just let me know.

I strive to document all information I enter and I like to see all family members linked.

BTW, the memorial for the young daughter of James Granville does not have correct information and I don't believe the child is buried where the memorial states. I have records of birth and death but not place of burial. I've requested a death certificate and will let you know what I learn.

I work as a social worker at a prison five minutes from Speer. I need to check out that cemetery. I have a couple of large binders on the Chrisawn family. Any particular question you might have? I also keep a lot of the info on ancestry. Com on my family tree

RE: Chrisawn/Crisawn Family
Ah Great! I researched Naomi and William awhile back. Do you know much about them? Where they where buried? I have lots of info on the family. John had two sons and a son in law who were Union soldiers. If I recall, Naomi and William had at least one son who wad a Confederate soldier. The family was divided over the war like many were. John had hundreds of acres of land. Two of his boys died in the war and he sold or lost most of the land. His father Andrew was a Revolutionary War soldier. He came to the mountains from Surry County after the war. There will be a stone placed for him in McDowell County this summer. The first Cresson in our family in the US was Ourre Cresson from France.

Yes I am related John and Sarah. John was a sin if my great x 5 grandfather Andrew Cresson. David, another son of Andrew was my great x 4 grandfather. U have been researching John and his family for a long time. He lived and died in McDowell County where I grew up. I recently learned where the land he used to own prior to the civil war was located. Are you related to John... Nice to meet you.... Paul Chrisawn
