expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Hardy Bryan Croom was born in Lenoir County, N.C., 8 October 1797, the son of William Croom and his wife Mary Bryan Croom, who lived at "Newington." He was graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1817 and studied law under William Gaston, but did not practice. Croom represented Lenoir County in the North Carolina Senate in 1828. He married Frances Smith, the daughter of Nathan Smith, merchant of New Bern, and settled in New Bern.

Croom and his brothers acquired land in Florida by inheritance and purchase, and Croom moved his slaves there to operate plantations. His brother Bryan, his half-brother William, and other relatives lived in Florida, and he visited them and his plantations frequently. In 1837, Croom purchased a house in Charleston, S.C., intending to move his family from New Bern to Charleston and Florida. His older children had been in school in New York, and, in October 1837, Croom, his wife, and their three children left New York on the steamship Home, bound for Charleston, with the intention of traveling by land from there to Florida. The Home was wrecked south of Cape Hatteras on 9 October 1837, and the Croom family was drowned.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Papers, 1822-1838.

Papers chiefly from the case of Smith and Armistead v. Croom, 7 Florida 81 (Florida Supreme Court), resulting from a dispute over the inheritance of Croom's property, with Mary Croom's mother and sister suing Croom's brothers and sisters. A lawsuit arising out of a dispute over his estate was settled in the Florida Supreme Court in 1857, and these papers were introduced as evidence in the case. The original letters are in the court files. The case is fully discussed in D. H. Redfearn, "'The Steamboat Home'--Presumption as to Order of Death in a Common Calamity," Florida Law Journal, IX (May 1935), 405-424, in the North Carolina Collection (Cp914/R31). This article also has a sketch of Croom and identifies members of the Croom and Smith families.

Copies of part of the transcript of Smith and Armistead vs. Croom, 7 Florida 81 (Florida Supreme Court). These contain copies of letters and extracts of letters from Hardy B. Croom dated 1831-1837.
