Judy, Am I missing something? Are there more records in the pension file that were not included in my request from the Archives?
I have Christena's widow application for Laurence's pension but the one I have does not state anything about a child dying. It does say that she had "three little children, the youngest one but six days old when he (Laurence) left to go into the service".
I do believe there is a chance that Jacob is a son. If Laurence and Christena had a son born in 1775 and they left Bedford County, PA by 1806 then it is very possible that this son could have been Jacob who was probably married and did not go with the rest of the family to Tennessee. Also I did look at microfilm taken of the Records of the First German & English Congregation of Knowlton, Warren County, NJ 1766 - 1804. The records were obviously in very poor condition when they were microfilmed, and they are written in German. I did find one entry that was for a Jacob baptized in March 1775 and the fathers name does appear to be Lourenz Lamberson but I would like to find someone to help me verify my interpretation.
Has anyone else looked at the First German & English Congregation records?
