FRENCH FARE IN THE UWHARRIES, KRON FAMILY RECIPES FROM ATTAWAY HILL
$20.00 

In 1823 Francis Joseph Kron married Mary Catherine Delamothe in Paris, France.  Within 3 months the Krons had boarded a ship bound for New York City, then another to Wilmington, and a final trip cross country to Henderson (Montgomery County) NC, to the home of Mrs. Kron’s uncle, Henry Delamothe.  One of the original Kron documents in the Stanly County Museum collection is Mrs. Kron’s recipe book.  The original document is in French and has been translated by Stanly County resident, Brian R. Wilkinson.    The book includes notes by the translator and a brief history of the Kron and Delamothe families.  It is believed that the recipes are from around 1800 and would have been used by an upper middle class French family.  This is in contrast to the primitive life Mrs. Kron experienced in the Uwharrie hills. 

Dr. Kron has long been recognized as a highly educated pioneer doctor and leader in Stanly County.  There is very little information available on Mrs. Kron, but based on the recipe book, she must have had a difficult time adapting to her new life in North Carolina.  We hope that, like Mrs. Kron, you will be inspired by the recipes in French Fare and that you can adapt them to your current recipes.

 The restored Kron home site is located in the Morrow Mountain State Park.
