Genealogy of the Krewson family

Sources: Most of the information here comes from the Osborn book, Gaylord's family history and various Websites (especially those outlining the early Dutch families and Quaker families). Recently the Vanguard newsletter of the Aersdalen family has been particularly useful. Croesen Families of America, a book by Warren Cruise is the latest source.
Recent: Two sisters, Vira and Lois Krewson, daugthers of Sarah Osborn and Orson Krewson, married two brothers, Clarence and Guy Wight. They moved from Nebraska to Canada. Both had large families. Clarence and Lois married after Vira and Guy died. Thus the Alberta and Saskatchewan double cousins became step-siblings. My parents were the third generation of such pairs of sister-brother marriages: Sarah Osborn's sister married Orson Krewson's brother and another brother when she was widowed, then Vira and Lois Krewson married brothers, then my mother and her sister married Barmby brothers.
Distant: This part of the tree is very mixed, some early immigrants and some late, from England, Ireland, Holland and elsewhere. However, many ancestors passed through Pennsylvania before moving west.
The surnames which have been linked to this family are: Adkinson, Aertss, Ashburn, Balbani, Bergen, Chambers, Clinken, Comes/Comis, Conard/Cunnard/Cunred/Cunraeds/Conradts, Cregier/Kregier, Crosen/Krewson/Krosen, de Sille, Dirske, Doors, Fix, Gilkison, Haelters, Hamman, Harris, Hart, Hatfield, Heckers, Heiden, Hendricks, Hunt, Jackson, Jones, Kunders, Langtree, Leyburne, Lubberstein, Marshall, Montieth, Miller, Nayle, Nees, Osborn, Penwell, Probasco, Qunchelen, Rapalje, Romeyn, Seubering, Stansfield, Shenten, Shields, Smith, Steppen, Stryker, Thones, Thornborough, Tyson, Van Artsdalen, Vandergoes, Van Husum, Vansant, Van Schouw, Van Spangen, Woodward, Wycoff.
The Krewson branch of the tree has the early settlers in New Amsterdam who moved down the coast and were living in Pennsylvania when it was settled. The Dutch tended to intermarry. The Osborn branch appears in Pennsylvania and contains a number of German immigrants. The Woodward branch seems to have been mostly Quaker immigrants to Pennsylvania. Quakers also tended to intermarry. Some families have not been traced: Shields, Gilkison, Hart, Miller, Penwell and Adkinson.
