George Croghan was a mature man when he came to America from Dublin, Ireland, in 1741. 4 Nicholas B. Wainwright wrote that George Croghan and Edward Ward, his "trusted half-brother," and perhaps their mother, and possibly Edward's father (whose given name he believed was 'Thomas') 6, together with a cousin, Thomas Smallman, and Roger Walton, "Croghan's Irish clerk," lived together for a few years, up to 1751, in "the community which Croghan had created beside the Conedogwinet creek" in Pennsborough township, Cumberland County.
Footnote 6: This conjecture seems very well founded. A "Thomas Ward," an Indian trader, was, on occasion, present with George Croghan when treaty negotiations were
being carried on with the Six Nation Indians and other Indians. One of the instances in which he was mentioned as being present is in Colonial Records,
