Note: t Gilbert does list an adult child, Peter, in his will of 1762, and there is a strong family tradition that Peter came from the Frederick County Crums.
Gilbert had 11 children, all but one of which were named in his will. The 11th child is not named. All the children were born in New Jersey. Baptisms of their four oldest (Wyntje, WIlliam, Cornelius, and Hannah) and the two youngest (Mary and Abraham) are in the church records of Readington & Harlingen, NJ. It appears the records are missing for the middle children, including Peter, because there was a gap in the church records between June 1734 and Oct. 1844. Wyntje may have died young as she is not mentioned in the will.
Gilbert's parents moved, with Gilbert and his brother Abraham, to New Jersey (Somerset Co.) when Gilbert was a child (about 1715). Gilbert moved to Frederick Co., MD by 1754, with his children, settling in Monocacy Manor.
According to researcher Robert Fry: Peter and Cornelius went to Huntingdon Co., PA; Gilbert & Abraham went to Bedford Co. VA, (perhaps by way of PA); William and possibly John stayed in Frederick Co., MD.
Another researcher (Mary Coates Martin) suggests the Peter Crum family descended from Matthias Crum, who emigrated from Germany to Montgomery Co., VA. Matthias had a son, John, who settled in Clark Co., IN. These Germans came from the Neider (Lower) Rhineland area near the Netherlands, which could be source of confusion of if family is Dutch or German.
Note: It is not certain that this Gilbert was the father of our Peter Crum. Bu
