Leonard Groninger, b: 1726 immigrated to Pennsylvania on the ship "Lydia",
Oct 9th, 1749, arriving in Philadelphia from Rotterdam, Holland via Cowes, England.
About one-hundred years later (1856) two connected Groninger families also immigrated
from Kuchen. One family settled in Pennsylvania where the father entered the
Union Army and was killed in the Civil War. The other family settled in Wisconsin.
Most of the Groninger, Croninger, Chroninger and some Kroninger surnamed people
in the United States descend from these immigrants.
