    • The 1880 census reports Mary Ann as the 61-yr old wife of Nicholas Croushorn, "keeping house" for him and 4 children and 2 grandchildren. It also states that her father was born in "Prussia," and her mother in Virginia. «i»1880 U.S.Census«/i», North River twsp, Augusta Cnty, VA (T 9, Roll 1355, p. 381)[LDS Film 1255355].

      «tab»"Mary Ann Redner ... was the wife of Nicholas Croushorn, whom she married Valentine's Day 1839. [She was the] daughter of ... Frederick Redner and his wife, [who are] buried also at Salem Lutheran. Her parents came from Prussia as did the father Jakob (Jacob) of Nicholas Croushorn. From Penn. they came down to Virginia to near Sugar Grove Virginia, now West Virginia.... Children: William Frederick (Civil War veteran), Daniel J. (Civil War veteran), Elizabeth C. Craun, Margaret Ellen, Jacob S., John Campbell, Sarah Frances, George Nicholas, Nancy Christina and Luther D. (the last two died on the same day of fever in 1862)....
      «tab»"Mary Ann and Nicholas were well-known in the community for their charity and neighborly conduct. During the fever outbreak in 1862 they risked their own lives to help some people others were too afraid to help - people would not enter their home(s) due to the fever. But Nicholas and Mary Ann took the risk. Afterwards, they burned their clothes. Nevertheless, their two youngest fell sick and died on the same day - all this while their two oldest sons were away fighting in the Civil War. Eventually ... Daniel lost his life a few years after the War most likely because of illnesses he had in the war - he was often sick in hospital. (This story of what they did during the fever outbreak has passed down through the family and was told to me by the late Ruth and Tracy Croushorn, children of their son George Nicholas Croushorn.)"
