MotherAnna Maria Carter b. 9 Oct 1852, d. 17 Jul 1890
Birth*9 September 1885 Hawley Rittenhouse Crum was born on 9 September 1885 in NJG.1,2 
Nickname  Hawley Rittenhouse Crum also went by the name of HR.3 
1900 Census6 June 1900 He appeared on the census of 6 June 1900 in the household of his brother-in-law and sister, William Bodine Larison and Mary Crum Larison at Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG. Fourteen year old Hawley had spent six months in school and worked as a farm laborer.4 
Marriage*6 June 1906 He married Jennie Larison, daughter of Benjamin Larison and Hannah, on 6 June 1906.5 
Compiler's Comment* At the time of her marriage to Hawley Crum, Jennie Larison would have been 53 years old; Hawley would have been 20. Although this marriage would appear to be unlikely, it is not impossible. The date of Jennie's death coincides with the period when Hawley Crum appears to be single again as evidenced in the 1910 census. Since Hawley lost his mother when he was five years old, was he looking for a maternal figure? 
Research needed* The bride's relationship to Hawley's brother-in-law, William B. Larison, is unknown at this time. 
Event-Misc21 July 1906 There was a notice in the Trenton Evening Times that "Hawley Crum of Sandy Ridge has been ill the past few days." This was about six weeks after his marriage.6 
Event-Misc10 January 1908 He survived the illness since he and his wife, Jennie, attended the golden wedding anniversary celebration for the Rev. and Mrs. Bartolette E. Bowne, Jan 1908.7 
Event-Misc5 August 1908 Later that year the Trenton Evening Times noted that "Mr. and Mrs. Hawley W. Crum of Sandy Ridge, and Mrs. William J. Molleston spent Wednesday in Atlantic City."8 
1910 Census*19 April 1910 He appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of 22 Orchard Street, Elizabeth, Union, NJG, enumerated 19 April 1910. He was listed as a 20 year old single carpenter. Jennie Larison Crum must have died previous to the census. Both Hawley's age and marital status appear to be incorrect; he was actually a 24 year old widower.9 
Event-Misc* According to announcements in the Trenton Evening Times, Hawley made four visits to the home of relatives in Sandy Ridge from his residence in Elizabeth, NJ during 1910 and early 1911. No mention was made of his late wife.10 
Marriage* He married for the seond time Jennie Olive Nelson, daughter of George Nelson and Anna D. Ruckman.11,12 
1920 Census*29 January 1920 He and Jennie Olive Nelson appeared on the 1920 Federal Census of Redondo, Los Angeles, CaliforniaG, enumerated 29 January 1920. Their children Richard Clifford and Robert Nelson were listed as living with them. Hawley owned the poultry ranch on which the family resided.2 
1930 Census*21 April 1930 Hawley Rittenhouse Crum and Jennie Olive Nelson appeared on the 1930 Federal Census of Inglewood Township, Los Angeles, CAG enumerated 21 April 1930. The family owned a radio. They also owned the poutry and egg ranch worth $20,000 on which they were living. Their children Richard Clifford, Robert Nelson, Ruth Anna and Phillip Norman were listed as living with them.13 
Compiler's Comment The compiler's parents, Isabelle Crum and Frank Rorer, visited with "Uncle Hawley and Aunt Jennie" during their posting to CA during WWII. They told the compiler that Hawley's chicken ranch was where the Los Angeles Airport now stands. 
Event-MiscSeptember 1941 In Sep 1941, Cleve and Libby Crum began a six week cross country drive to visit Cleve's brothers, Hawley and Richard, who were living in Santa Monica, CA. Cleve's sister, Rheba Ent, and Rheba's daughter, Ruth, accompanied them.14 
Event-MiscOctober 1950 According to an article in the 12 Oct 1950 issue of the Trenton Evening Times, "Hawley Crum has returned to his home at Los Angeles, Calif., after spending two weeks with relatives in this vicinity."15 
Death*14 March 1976 He died on 14 March 1976 at San Bernardino, CAG, at age 90.1

FatherBenjamin Crum
MotherSarah Lanning b. c 1786, d. 8 Apr 1862
Birth*6 April 1815 Henry Crum was born on 6 April 1815 in Readington, Hunterdon, New JerseyG.1 
Marriage*18 February 1837 He married Catherine Moore, daughter of Daniel Moore and Sarah Dalrymple, on 18 February 1837 at Amwell, Hunterdon, NJG. Israel Poulson, minister for the Amwell Brethren Church, performed the ceremony. Both the bride and groom were from Amwell.2 
Misc*18 March 1840 In the 18 Mar 1840 issue of the Hunterdon Gazette, there was a notice:"The partnership of J C. Fisher & H. Crum is this day dissolved by mutual consent. All persons indebted to the partnership are requested to make immediate payment. Those having demands against said firm will present them for settlement. John C. Fisher, Henry Crum, Sergeantsville, March 18, 1840."3 
1840 census*1840 He appeared on the 1840 Federal census of Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG. Heny was engaged in commerce according to the census. The type of commerce is unknown, although prior to the census, Henry dissolved a partnership with J.C. Fisher.4 
1850 Census*8 August 1850 Henry and Catherine appeared on the 1850 Federal Census Raritan, Hunterdon, NJG, enumerated 8 August 1850. Their children Sarah Ann, Leonard, George W, Lewis C and James P were listed as living with them. Henry was a merchant.5 
Deed Grantee*7 October 1850 He purchased land at Delaware Township, Hunterdon, New JerseyG, from Isaac and Anna R. Hoppock for $600 on 7 October 1850.6 
Deed Grantee27 March 1852 He purchased four acres at Raritan Township, Hunterdon, NJG, from the heirs of Samuel Buchanan in a forced sale for $241 on 27 March 1852.7 
Deed Grantee1 April 1852 He purchased 161 acres and adjoining wood lot of two acres in Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG from the estate of Henry Trimmer, Sr for $2303.93 on 1 April 1852.8 
Deed Grantor1 May 1852 He sold land purchased 27 Apr 1852 to Daniel Moore, Jr. for $100 on 1 May 1852. Henry paid $241 for this land four days earlier. Daniel Moore, Jr. was his wife's brother.9 
Research needed Need verification of the date land was purchased from the heirs of Samuel Buchanan: was it Mar or 27 Apr of 1852? 
1855 New Jersey Cens*12 August 1855 He was listed in the 1855 New Jersey State Cesus of Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG taken on 12 August 1855. His household contained 8 white native males, 5 white native females and 3 white males between the ages of 5 and 16.10 
Compiler's Comment* The numbers on the state census don't add up to the household composition. In 1855, there were six male children in addition to Henry. It is possible a relative or hired hand who was helping with the farm work was the eighth male. There were two female children plus Catherine which would agree to the number on the census. It is surprising that with a household of at ten family members, Catherine hadn't hired a woman to help with the cooking and housekeeping chores. Perhaps the eldest daughter, eighteen year old Sarah Ann, played that role. 
Deed Grantee22 March 1858 He purchased 52.88 acres in Readington Township, Hunterdon, NJG from Isaac Rowe for $500 on 22 March 1858.11

Their children Sarah Ann, Leonard, George W, James P, Lewis C, Joseph H and Daniel M were listed as living with them. He was a farmer with land valued at $7000 and personal property at $1500.14

Note* Ruth Crum, daughter of Isaac Crum, recalled that her father said that Henry Crum was left quite a sizeable sum of money by a friend. Could that friend have been Isaac Rowe? Henry was said to have used the money to travel out west to buy horses, bring them back and sell them for a profit.18

Misc from Deed Book31 May 1862  Daniel Moore and his wife, and Henry Crum and his wife signed a release to Thatcher Prall, the new executor of Daniel Moore, Sr.'s estate.22 
Research needed* Need probate records for Daniel Moore, Sr. to learn the reason why Henry Crum was replaced as executor of this estate. 
Misc from Deed Book16 January 1863  Henry and Catherine Crum of Delaware township and Daniel Moore, Jr of Raritan township sold for $1.00 their interest in two lots in Raritan township, one lot of two acres and a second adjacent lot, to Charlotte Moore of Raritan.23 
Research needed Need to research the relationhip of Catherine Moore Crum to Charlotte Moore. 
Event-MiscApril 1863 Henry Crum was called to serve on the Grand Jury during the Apr 1865 term of court.24 
Politics*4 July 1863 The Democratic Club of Delaware Township adopted a Constitution and Bylaws on 4 July 1863. The country was engaged in the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st. The Democratic Party was opposed to the freeing of slaves with compensation given to the owners using tax dollars. They were against the conscription act and believed Lincoln was centralizing power in the federal government and usurping rights of the states. They opposed war to preserve the union and free slaves making them equal to whites. Instead of war, they wanted negotiations "for the restoration of the Union upon principles as would be alike honorable to all sections." The Bylaws required there to be one president and vice presidents to represent each school district. Henry Crum was named as the vice president representing the 7th District, Sand Brook. Other than this position, Henry apparently stayed out of politics.25
