Bio Photo I've been adding and linking the Sebastian Lasher family that arrived in Germantown, New York in 1710 for the last few years.

If you are related I would love to hear from you and we are distant cousins.

I know there is a connection between this family and the Row (Rau, Rowe, born about 1758) family but have not found out just how yet. They too lived in Germantown, NY. The oldest member I have is George Rau (Row) who had a son Johannes (John) G Rowe (Row)1774-1854. This is where the Robinson line comes in as John had a daughter Maria (1804-1870 that married Peter Robison (1802-1847).

Another Johannes Rowe (1722-1771) married a Catherina Lescher (Lasher), dau of Bastian Lescher (Lasher) 1699-1790), but I don't know how this Johannes fits into my tree, but a lot of the names of the children are similar.

If you have any further information, I would appreciate it. You can check my public tree on It is Old Rowes Tree CL.

Thank you so very much for all of the photo requests you have filled for me in past few weeks. You are keeping me busy verifying my info with the headstones. Thanks you also for setting up memorials for their family members, I did not know where they were buried. Thank you so much for your time and extra efforts. Rosemary

Once again, thank you Janet for fulfilling these photo requests. I know it can be difficult especially when there is no indication as to the location of the probable plot, so your skills are doubly appreciated!

RE: Lasher Family in Spencertown
Thank you anyway. I was able to use the information I found to get at least 3 more generations mapped.

My maternal grandmother had an unusual name -- Electa -- and I've been trying to see if those surnames generate any clues to where it may have come from (other than the Eastern Star reference)

Lasher Family in Spencertown
My great, great grandmother is Harriet O Lasher. Her parents are Ezra and Sarah Lasher. I would be interested in any additional information that you have about the Lasher family line. Several generations of this family line are buried in Spencertown Cemetery, so I am interested in any deeper connections, especially last names of Chase, Peterson, Loomis and Bowen -- all appear in old family photographs, but we do not know how they are related.

Harmon Jennings grave
Thank you so much for finding and photographing Harmon and family's grave! What a terrific surprise! I now need to get up to that area to research the next of kin to him. This is truly helpful and so appreciated!
