The Family of Jan Lawrence

Updated September 5, 2000

Jan Louise Lawrence


WEST READING, PA 19611-1018



I am a descendant of Maurice Lawrence who arrived with his wife Barbara in the USA about 1740. They first settled in the Berks County, Pennsylvania, area and many of their children later moved to the Adams County, Pennsylvania, region, presumably to practice their Catholic religion more easily. Fortunately, most of their records are found in the Conewago Chapel histories.Other names that have married into the Lawrence line are: Adams, Ackerman, Groft, Devine, Hart, Smith, Miller, Staub, Shanefelter, Gubernator and Foller. Most of these names are also found in the Conewago records.I would be delighted to share information with other family researchers.
