I love doing Genealogy. I started around 2001 before the loss of my grandma Mosteller. I have a tree on ancestry with over 8,500 names on it. Sronce/Scronce/Schronce/Shronce from at least 25 states. Other names I have are Mosteller, Morgan, Crump, Alexander, Clark, Reinheart, Reynolds, Cline, Taylor...and others. If there is any way I can help and have time I will.|
There are many other spelling also (I have seen none of the others on tombstones and would love to know if that is the way they spell their names as of now and their relationship to me)...The original spelling is Schrantz (which means a split coat or someone who was around kings)...Other spellings include Schrontz; Schrance, Schronse; Shrontz; Swronce; Seronce; will add more as I remember them...
The best reference guide I have come across is the book "Leaning towards the Scronce's". This was a very very helpful book, but filled with many mistakes and pitfalls. The Author Christopher Boyles - His grandfather helped do a lot of the leg work for this work and many people was interviewed.
Han's is shown as being the first Schrantz from our line to come to America his arrival was in 1747 and originated from Germany...Prussia as it was known then. From further study I found the Schrantz clan was originally from Bern Switzerland, starting around 1500.
From the book, It is speculated that Hans had a Son that later followed his father to America, they both settled in Philadelphia County, PA for some time. Nicholas ended up moving several times first settling in Lincoln County Kentucky then moving to Lincoln County North Carolina and then back to Lincoln Kentucky. In each state, his family stayed and started their own families. Not much is known about Nicholas children or any other Children of Han but there are several other Schrantz/Sronce/Shronce that show up in the 1790 and 1800 census that I could only surmise are his brothers/cousins/uncles.

FYI: Noticed on their memorial pages their birth years are 1873 but their headstones say 1874. while I was there I also took photos of Ralph, Lillian and Teddy's headstones. Will add Ralph and Teddy's photos as soon as the system will allow. I am currently getting an error message and to try back later. There was no request for Lillian; can I assume you want that as well?

I couldn't resist taking pictures in the snow and I had to go to Hickory today, so I picked that cemetery to take them in. It is usually really hot and sunny, so cold and snowy was different.

|Jennifer Davis||RE: Susan Wright Coble Or Susan Lee|
Ok I talked to my mother in law and that is the right Susan..her real name is Martha Sue Schronce and her birthday is June 21 1961..
|Jennifer Davis||RE: Susan Wright Coble Or Susan Lee|
the wright was from another marriage. That I do know..if I gave you my address do you think you could send me a copy of the records you have? I do not know much cause this is my husbands familys, but I will call my mother in law and ask her for her year of birth. Susan is her sister. When she was alive, I only met her a few times myself. But I will see what I can find out..
|Jennifer Davis||RE: Obit Dorothy Schronce|
thank you so much on the obituary for Dorothy Schronce. I am really grateful. The one thing I learned from reading her obituary is when I named my daughter, my daughters middle name is Caroline. Caroline was my granny's middle name as well, and now I find out it was also my husbands grandmothers middle name. So I am grateful someone was able to find it for me and share it. So thank you again :-)
I do have a question though. I am trying to find the obituary for her daughter Susan Lee or that is how it is mentioned in Dorothy's obit. But in her brother (Teddy Schronce's)obit, her name is listed as Susan Wright Coble and all I know is she passed in maybe 2006 I think it is and she was cremated as well. Do you think you might be able to find something? If not that is cool, I still appreciate the obit for Dorothy.
|Bradley Hutson||RE: Photo's|
You're very welcome! I'm always glad to help you out.
I went to high school my last two years in Pinckneyville with a Sronce, Brian was his name. I guess he is related to you somehow too. When I go take pictures at Mueller Hill, I recognize many of the same last names as those I went to school with there.
|Jennifer Davis||Dorothy Schronce|
I noticed you posted the following info about Dorothy Schronce. This is my husbands grandmother and I have looked all over trying to find even just a little bit of info. Do you have the rest of this info or obituary that you could send me? I would be grateful.
Thanks in advance
Dorothy Caroline Benfield Schronce, 82, Harmony, died Thursday, Dec. 6, 2007, at her residence. She was born on Feb. 25, 1925, in Belmont, and was the daughter of the late Albert Jesse Lee Benfield and Dovie Mae Shoemaker.
|Joy Steele||Dorothy Schronce|
