p. 174 JACOB S. LAWRENCE

The subject of this sketch was born in Milton, Northumberland county, Pa., July 13th, 1826.  His parents were George and Esther LAWRENCE. Andrew STRAUB, his mother's father, was the proprietor of a very large tract of land embracing Milton, which town he laid out.

At the age of fourteen Mr. LAWRENCE removed to Minersville with his father's family.  His father was a prominent early business man in Minersville, where he built a steam flouring mill.  About 1846 he sold his property there and returned to Northumberland county, where he located on a farm about five miles from Milton...

See Jacob's page for the full excerpt.

11.  Information found by Frank Stroup at the Pennsylvania Historical Society in two folders of unpublished notes entitled Helen Gearhart Collection.  These notes were entirely undocumented, so caveat emptor; yet if true, they contain much valuable information, so are worth consulting. See Archives of the STRAUB-L mailing list (online at RootsWeb.com, Inc.; search on "Gearhart").
