Croom Family History  

Contributed by Donna Lebedynsky - Croom Family History Photos

After most careful and intensive research, this family finds that the first Crooms came to America from Gloucester, England in 1664 and settled in the New England states.

The next Crooms left "Croom" in Lemerick, Ireland, came to Virginia in 1700, or prior to that time. Took up land grants, and established "Homes" on the James River.

From there, three Croom brothers moved down and settled in the eastern counties of North Carolina in 1741.

This site, named by the Indians as "Sandy Bottom" has been used by the Crooms continually ever since.

Nearby, the little "Meeting House" still stands on sacred sod where many souls have met and found their way to God.
