Cronin family of Holt County, Nebraska

John and James Cronin of Holt County Nebraska emigrated from County Cork in 1847.

John's father was,presumably, also named James and his mother was Jane Justice. This Cronin family worked for Jane Justice's father as rent collectors for his estate. Our best guess is that when the famine came the younger generation didn't have the stomach for the evictions and came to the United States. John married Julia Cavanagh of Co. Galway and had 8 or 9 children. His brother James never married but resided with him. They possibly( according to family folklore) had a brother Joseph who lived in New Bedford Massachusetts.

Families in Nebraska related to these Cronins are: Hayes, Hunt, Mc Hugh, McGraw
