An Unpublished Genealogy
Frank L. Crone. The Crone and Allied Families from which the
Author is Descended. Manila, The Philippines, 1931.
This is a typescript and, as far as we can tell, the genealogy was never
published. The opportunity to purchase it was a stroke of luck. In 1916
Mr. Crone gave the Antiquarian Society a brief history of his family. In
1922 he gave us the family chart. His address in those years was Lima,
Peru. The typescript we just bought from a dealer lists his address as
Manila in the Philippines.
In Mr. Crone's entry for himself in the genealogy, we learn that he was
born near Kendallville, Indiana, in 1875. He graduated from Indiana
University. After six years of teaching in Indiana and Michigan, he
entered the Philippine education service as the Director of Education. He
later served as Director of General Education in Peru. After his
retirement from overseas assignments, he worked as a representative of
D.C. Heath & Company in Richmond, Virginia. He moved back to the
Philippines in 1931, where he finished this typescript.
The Society has a very strong collection of published genealogical
material focusing on early North American lines of descent, including
French-Canadian genealogies. The collection is used extensively not only
by genealogists but also by scholars working on biographical, historical,
and literary topics. Currently, the collection numbers over 18,000 family
histories, plus many reference works. The Society adds to the collection
by purchase and donation.
Purchased on the George E. Ellis Fund.
