      (Posted Query)
      CRONK -- Looking for descendants (any Cronk) of of family of James Barker Cronk b. 18 Jun 1818 and Mintchie Vanhorn and their children Albert Wellinton Cronk b. 29 Jan 1847 and Henry “Selwyn” Cronk b. 3 Jan 1858. My Cronk(s) came from Mountain Grove, Ontario and branched out into Parham, Long Lake, Kingston. Some migrated to US. This particular branch goes back to Abraham Cronk I and II. However, I cannot link to present-day Cronks. I am missing a generation or two.


      In regard to your query on the Kingston Genealogy Society Web page.

      I am not sure of the link between James Barber Cronk and my family family (Price) however my
      grandfather’s brother Nicholas Marshall Price from Mountain Grove ON married a woman by
      the name of Prudence Smith whose mother was Victoria Cronk. The information below is taken
      from their obituaries probably from the local Kingston Newspaper the Kingston Whig Standard
      however it came to me from other sources while conducting my own family search.

      According to the obituaries the Smiths were from the Parham area as evidenced by the reference
      to Long Lake and Hinchinbrooke Township both of which are just south of Mountain Grove.
      Marshall (as he was called) and his wife Prudence moved to Kingston, had a son Wilbur Price
      and 2 daughters one of which was Vera Price. Vera also married into the Cronk family to a man
      named Gerald M. Cronk. Gerald Cronk owned and operated a barber shop here in Kingston ON
      until about the late 1960’s or so (going from memory). Gerald and Vera lived on Toronto Street
      here in Kingston. Both Gerald and Vera are now deceased and if memory serves me they had no
      children. Vera (Price) Cronk’s brother Wilbur Price is still living here in Kingston and is in his 90’s.

      In regard to your Albert Wellington Cronk, the obit for Prudence Adaline Price indicates that her
      mother’s one brother was named Wellington Smith. Also my great grandfathers half brother was Matthew Wellington Price also from Mountain Grove. Perhaps there is some connection there as well.

      Marshall and Prudence Price are buried in the Cataraqui Cemetery here in Kingston (see
      attachment). The second attachment was taken from a memorial plaque in Mountain Grove.
      There are 2 cemeteries there, the Olden (Township name) Cemetery and the Olden Pioneer
      cemetery. I recall that the name Cronk was quite prevalent on various tomestones when I was
      visiting there.

      I trust this information is of some use to you
