Sarah "Mary" McKee Larimer
Birth: 1704
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 22, 1770
York County
Pennsylvania, USA

The original Larimer family name was French, Lorimier, derived from the Latin Lorum, a thong. The English form, Lorimer, indicates the name of an ancient trade.

The "Larimer" was a maker of bits, spurs, stirrup irons, and all kinds of metal mountings of brass and iron, including armor. The first family record of the name is found in 1080, when a certain Durand Lorimer went from Caen, France, to Scotland, doubtless with the armies of William the Conqueror. In Scotland Lorimer is quite a common name.

The first of the Larimer family of record in this country was Robert Larimer, who came to America from Scotland, where his ancestors had fled when driven from Alsace, Lorraine, by the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes.

He settled in York Co. PA and was a successful farmer, the tax records showing him possessed of two farms, one in Berwick Twp. of two hundred acres, and one in Mt. Joy Twp.

The relatiionship between Mary's husband Robert and the original Robert Larimer (b.1714, d.1772) was still a topic of research in December 2011. Given the close relationship in the dates and places where they lived it is likely that they are somehow related.
