Birth: 1755
Dutchess County
New York, USA
Death: 1819
Leeds
Ontario, Canada

The following notes from the late John D. Baldwin (50+ year Delong researcher).

Lawrence marred Sarah Howland in 1772. They had the following children:

1. Howland DeLong b. 1773.
2. Polly DeLong b. 1774.
3. Phebe DeLong b. abt 1776.
4. William DeLong
5. Joseph DeLong b. 1777-78.
6. George DeLong b. 1780.
7. Mary DeLong b. 1783-84.
8. Martin DeLong b. 1785-86.

Sarah either died or they separated (div.), she was a staunch Quaker, Lawrence was not.

Lawrence married 2nd Mrs. Jerusha (Whitney) Gates in 1802 in Hinesburgh, Chittenden Co., VT.

1819 - A tombstone for Lawrence DeLong, Halliday(sic) Cemetery, Elgin, Leeds Co., Ont. says he died 1819, age 73. Since subject was almost unquestionably born 1755-6, this is a ten-year variation -- either he died 1829 or his age was 63. The stone was rechecked for me in 1978 and I am assured the figures are correct. Might this instead be a memorial marker and not Lawrence's burial place? A replacement marker for son George, daughter Mary and her husband was erected in 1921. And in the Old Settler Cemetery, Quaker St., Lincoln, VT there remains a marker (footstone?) with initials "L.D." No other early Lincoln settler with those initials has been noted. Might this be Lawrence's true burial place with the erroneous Ontario stone being a memorial? (research of John D. Baldwin III)

1820 - His widow is probably the Jerusha DeLong of Perry, Genessee Co., NY 000000/00101.

1840 - Jerusha died St. Albans, Vt. July 29 or 31.
