Reunion History

The Cromartie Family Reunion was first observed on August 29, 1929 and was attended by various descendants of William Cromartie, an immigrant from Orkney, Scotland. "William of Orkney" settled the Cape Fear River area of North Carolina in 1750 and became the patriarch of the Cromartie Family in America. That first meeting of Cromartie descendants was held at White Lake, North Carolina to form a family organization for the preservation of Cromartie Family history, its genealogy, and to honor their family patriarch.

Family Plaque

A granite marker in memory of William Cromartie was unveiled in a commemorative program at the South River Presbyterian Church on August 18, 1932.

Family Plaque

This marker was installed and can still be viewed near the site of his Revolutionary period home near the intersection of Highway 701 and 210 which have the following coordinates 34*44'53.53" North, 78*25'18.05" West.
