In Response To: Crummel & Cromwell: Is there a connection? ()
I am caucasian descedant of CRUMMEL, from what I can trace back originally to PA>OH>IN>MI as far as migrations. As far as the Crummel vs. Cromwell question, I can only offer some subjective recollection my mother had from one of her great-uncles talking about the family history. Apparently he said the name Crummel came from Cromwell, citing some link to the English. I have nothing thus far in my limited research to support this idea. The Crummel families I have researched seemed to cluster in areas where there were the PA DUTCH or German immigrants, tended to be protestant for those who went to church. Interesting question. Good luck with your research.
