In Reply to: Webster Laing of New Jersey 1793-1854 by Katharine Laing of 686

Katherine,

I have a copy of a Plainsfield, NJ newspaper dated Aug 21, 1885. It lists the Laing Family of New Jersey. This article lists the names of some of John Laing's descendents.

Abram Laing and Susannah Thorn's children:
Betsy, WEBSTER, Susannah, Rebecca, Edith, Isaac, Meriba, Phebe, and Abraham.

Abram was son of David Laing and Mary Thorne-Abram was born in 1758.

WEBSTER Laing, born 1793, married Margaret Noe and had: Catherine, Mary, Augustus, EDEN, Susan, William, Edgar, Emma, and Noe.

There is no wife or children mentioned for Eden. I hope this answers your question. Looks like your link back to John Laing may be verified by this newspaper.

Are both you and your husband Laings?

I am also a Laing descendent.

martie
