Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Peter Sronce
I am very sorry but there is no grave marker for Peter Sronce at Fairmount Cemetery. Last year I completed taking pictures of the entire cemetery of all graves where the stones were readible at all. The picture added was the general area where he is buried - the official records mark it as "W" which stands for white. You might call Mr. Weaver at the City Cemetery office to inquire further.

RE: Mike Thanks so much for the great pictures!
You are welcome. It was a pleasure to get them for you. Didn't look like no one else was going to get them for you

RE: Kuhns Cemetery

No, I'm not familiar with that one. I haven't done too much in Washington county.

There's a way you can add the cemetery to Find-A-Grave, but I've never added one. I think it's done at the memorial creation level. If you add a memorial for your distant Scronce kin and say they're buried in Kunn's Cemetery, it should give you the option to add the cemetery to the database.

Would you happen to know the month and day of his birth as well as death, or is it just the year you know?? Any information you could five me on this would be appreciated.

Peter Sronce
Your request for a better picture for the grave of Peter Sronce was sent to me and I truly wish I could get you a better picture. The problem is he is listed on the official record at Fairmount as buried in the section marked "W". This stands for White. This cemetery was established in 1882 and has about 9,508 spaces. Many of these spaces are not marked and some had markers but were destroyed for one reason or another. I took pictures of this entire cemetery last year and when there was no specific grave, I placed a picture of the general area where that person was buried. So I am sorry your request cannot be fulfilled by me. Others are welcome to try to find his grave or you might check with Mr. Weaver in the city cemetery office to see if they can find it. Ruth Smith
