Cronin, along with his wife would travel to Boston, Massachusetts in June of 1842 and settle in the towns of Groton and nearby Harvard where he worked as a laborer and soapstone worker in the neighboring quarry. By 1854 the Cronin's relocated west to Wisconsin settling in Maple Grove, Manitowoc County where he purchased land and began farming.
