      Hi Julie, A friend showed me your ad in the Kingston geneology newsletter. My paternal grandmother was Meta Saloma Cronk, born at Long Lake [near Parham & Mountain Grove], just a few miles north of where I grew up & am living now [Sydenham, Ontario]. Her parents were Emily Oliver & Coleman Cronk. Coleman was descended from Abraham. but at the moment, I can't find his fathers name. I know the Cronks were originally Cronk(h)eits, & came from Holland to Duchess County NY, thence to Canada via Adolphuston. I have an old prayerbook printed in high German with some of the early names recorded in the back.

      You’re living where, Michigan? Look forward to hearing from you.
      Wilma Kenny

      Dear Julie,
      Thanks so much for the info - it’ll take me a bit of time to sort through it all, but it’s fascinating! I’ve known
      Susie Jones most of my life, but temporarily lost touch when both our e-mail addresses changed.

      Is the question about Marilyn/Cheryl Gossage yours? Her name’s Cheryl: Marilyn and her sister Barbara
      are the daughters of Helen Gossage, who married Reg Garrett [my mother’s brother - legal, but confusing).

      Shirley Gossage married Jack Moreland. As far as I know, Mary Gossage Giles only ever had 3 children - Roberta [Struthers], Helen { Pettit], and Harold.
      All my first cousins but Barbara live in this area, but I must admit I’ve lost track oltheir children &
      grandchildren. Warren Gossage & I are hoping to have a family get-together soon, to catch up. No
      particular problems, we’ve just all gone our separate ways.

      Leslie Benn was Saloma Cronk/Gossage’s first cousin- his mother was a Cronk Some of the family still
      live on the original fann at Long Lake [very near Mountain Grove]. There are some interesting tales about
      Leslie, and his father, ‘professor’ Benn.
      Anyway, Thanks so much, & I’ll try to get you some more organized info.
      - I’m a retired social worker, into fibreart, writing, & gardening. I lave lived in Kingston Ontario, Toronto,
      Vancouver, & Inuvik, in the arctic. Married to Cam Kenny, also retired social worker, & we have 2 kids,
      Tammy & Peter.

      Please do tell me a bit about yourself.
      Cheers, Wilma Kenny
