Notes for: Mary (Maria) Crocheron

I do think Crocheron is the original French spelling of her surname. See my notes on her father.

I saw a name in France (Domremy-la-Poucelle) spelled "Couchouron." I don't know if Crocheron could have once been spelled that way, but it is a possibility. People told me that "Couchouron" was pronounced "Cu-sher-GHON." The "gh" stands for the French "r." Maria probably died by 1697. See her husband's notes file for more on this.

Somebody on Geneanet has a birth date of January 1652 for her in Rijsel, Moerbeke-bij-Aalst, Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium. No source was given. I don't know where that date would have come from.

There are some Cochrans in the New Lots Cemetery in the city of New York, but I don't know if they are related. Here are some names of people interred there:

Bennett, Cochran, Cozine, Decker, Duryea, Eldert, Hopkins, Knox, Linington, Lott, Magee, McKee, Pierce, Rapelje, Rapalje, Ryerson, Selover, Stoothoff, Storm, Vanderveer, Van Siclen, & Wyckoff.
