Ancestry: (all in Pfungstadt)
- Arrived in Philadelphia, 21 June 1729, aboard the Mortonhouse
and took an oath of allegiance there on 19 Aug 1729.
Note that 2-George Croesman was also
on this ship. [2,3]
1785 in Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania.
Eva Barbara Schrack was born 1 May 1716, the daughter of Johann/Hans Jacob Schrack (16 Oct 1679 Siglingen, Württemberg - 22 Feb 1742 Trappe, Mont. Co., PA)
and Eva Rosina/Euphrosina Lang (19 Apr 1688 Ulm - 19 Oct 1756 Trappe, Mont. Co., PA).
6-George Croesman and Eva Barbara Scrack were married at Trappe on 10 Jan 1735  or 9 Oct 1735 [1,6].
Eva Barbara immigrated to Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania from Germany in 1717 with her parents.
The Schracks ran an Inn in Montgomery Co. that was often referred to as "the trap",
hence the village acquired the name "Trappe". The location is now known as Collegeville.
The Schracks had very
close connections with the family of Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg, father
of the Lutheran Church in America, whose principal congregation,
the Augustus Lutheran congregation, was nearby. In fact,
Eva Barbara's father was responsible for bringing Muhlenberg to America in 1742. 
George "The Carpenter" arrived to Philadelphia in 1729 and,
it is believed, lived a short time at Providence before
taking up permanent residence in Indianfield, "Dutch Area",
in what is now called Franconia Twp. in Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania.
He purchased a 1,000 acres tract there, in which deed he is
called "Georg Crossman, the Carpenter from Providence".
Although he secured the property by 10 Feb 1734, the deed
was not issued until 5 May 1755, and not filed in the Montgomery
County deed book until 13 May 1871 [Deed book 190, p. 423],
almost one hundred fourty years later! And I though I procrastinated :-)!
In Dec 1744, he was one of 42 people who signed a petition of Jost COpe to appoint persons to
review the road into Franconia Twp. that was laid out by a previous jury.
Petition signatures included the names Gorg Grossman [him],
John Georg Crossman, and
On 2 June 1745, "Johann Jürg Crossman and wife Barbara"
sponsored teh baptism of Johan Jurg Kleppinger, son of Johan Jürg
and Anna Margretha of North Wales Twp., then seven weeks old. 
He appears on tax censuses of Franconia Township as follows:
1769 (George Kresman, 200 acres),
1799 (George Crissman, est'e, p.h'd),
and prob. 1782 (George Cressman) [but, the last one could be his son].
