PREFACE 



In the ages to come, sucli books as this will live to 
give to the world their wealth of information not 
then from any other source to be obtained. The 
Great Libraries of the world will preserve them. 
Appreciating this fact, and actuated in the highest 
sense by a desire to obey the Divine injunction, 
"Honor thy father and thy mother," several gentle- 
men bearing the honored family name of Lasher, de- 
termined, before it was too late, to put together in 
tangible shape, such records of the family as are now 
accessible. 

The compiling of this genealogy was started 
through the active co-operation of George W. Lasher, 
D. D., of Cincinnati, Ohio, Alfred P. Lasher, Esq., of 
Saugerties, N. Y., Hazard Lasher, Esq., of New York 
City and Thomas J. Lasher, Esq., of Brooklyn, N. Y., 
of whom Alfred P. Lasher, Esq. took the lead; giving 
freely of his time and of his money that this work 
might be completed, thus gratifying his friends and 
to be praised by generations yet to come. 



6 Preface 

There are gaps in the work which from the lack of 
information are not now filled, for the descendants of 
these early settlers whose name is now Lasher, and 
other descendants of various names, do not differ from 
those of other families. More modern details would 
have been given if more of the letters and cir- 
culars addressed to the members of the family, 
soliciting information, had been answered; those who 
did not answer either from lack of energy or courtesy, 
or from neglect, or some reason known only to them- 
selves, have apparently shown their unwillingness to 
interest themselves in the collection and preservation 
of the annals of their family. 

It is to be hoped that some later generation will 
take an interest in the matter and make more full 
and complete what is here given. As time progresses, 
old papers, old books and records, by accidental and 
other causes are destroyed and lost — knowledge which 
our ancestors possessed passes away; and this will 
continue to be the case in the future. The contents of 
these pages are from church and family records, old 
papers, tombstones, public documents and the early 
history of the country, and from information derived 
from members of the family on whom personal calls 



Preface 7 

were made. They are intended to be acurate and 
reliable; but in a work of this kind errors are apt to 
to creep in and no doubt have crept in, in spite of 
all efforts to prevent it. 

In the early French, Dutch and German churches 
the records were kept in the different languages; for 
the purposes of this genealogy the records are here 
given by translation and equivalents in English. To 
the members of the family and others who have 
kindly allowed the examination of their records and 
papers and afforded the information they could gather 
or possessed, the compiler returns his sincere thanks, 
feeling sure that when all in present life have gone 
Home, the then reader of these pages will bless the 
memory of all who in any way lent their aid in pre- 
paring the manuscript.

The project of establishing colonies of French 
Protestants in America, was advocated as early as 
the middle of the sixteenth century. Spain foremost 
in discovery and exploration of the New World, was 
now nearly without a rival upon its continents and 
waters. The vast empires of Mexico and Peru had 
fallen an easy prey to her captains; and the riches 
which this conquest poured into the royal treasury 
enabled Charles the Fifth to carry on the wars which 
especially humiliated France. The plan for weakening 
her inveterate foe by planting settlements along the 
American shore thus contesting the sovereignty of the 
New World with Spain was openly advocated by the 
illustrious Gaspard de Coligny. But there was an- 
other reason perhaps more potent, that prompted him, 
he was preparing to be the fearless champion of 
religious freedom and the rights of conscience that 



12 The Lasher Genealogy 

he proved himself ever after. At this moment, the 
outlook for Protestantism in France was an anxious 
one. The doctrines of the Reformation proclaimed 
by Luther had soon spread into the neighboring ter- 
ritory of France, and made converts among the 
learned and titled as well as among the common 
people. The king, Francis the First, himself professed 
a desire to see the abuses of the church corrected. 
Motives of state policy prompted Francis to seek an 
alliance with the Protestant princes of Germany and 
to conciliate the Lutherans among his own subjects. 
But it was not long before, influenced by other con- 
siderations, he forsook the cause of moderation upon 
which he had entered, and acknowleged himself the 
inplacable foe of the Reformation. Parliamentary 
enactments pronounced the profession of the new 
doctrines a crime, to be punished with death; and 
execution for heresy became frequent throughout the 
kingdom. The last years of Francis I. were stained 
by the massacre of the Protestant inhabitants of 
twenty-two towns and villages and by the burning at 
the stake of fourteen members of the newly organized 
Church of Meaux. Under his son, Henry II., the 
laws aimed at heresy became increasingly severe. 



The Lasher Genealogy 13 

From this time on the story of the persecution of the 
Protestants in France — the intrigues of the Jesuits 
— that body of religious diplomats to whom "the end 
Justifies the means" was all in all, wholly sanctioned 
and upheld by the Roman Catholic Church — we have 
a story of devastation, bloodshed and dishonor — 
all in the name of God — wholly uni)aralled in the 
history of the world. 

It was from this horrible persecution that fully 
one-fourth of the population of France sought safety 
by flight to other lands and there is hardly a civilized 
country in the world in which the descendants of 
these Frenchmen cannot be found. 

Coming down to 1656-59, after a period of compar- 
ative quiet through the early years of the reign of 
Louis XIV., the tolerant course adopted by the gov- 
ernment gave displeasure to the Church of Rome ; 
and soon the King, yielding to their persuasions, 
entered upon a reactionary course, which was to cul- 
minate in the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, and 
in the suppression of the Protestant faith in France 
by interdicting the national Synods, the last of which 
was held in November, 1659. 

It was in these distressful days that Francois Le 



14 The Lasher Genealogy 

Seur came to New Amsterdam ; he arrived April 10th, 
1657, soon afterwards settling at New Harlem, where 
with twenty other freeholders in response to a petition 
signed by them addressed to the governer and council 
of New Netherlands, they were permitted to buy a 
tract of land adjoining the "Great Kill" or Harlem 
River, on which ground was broken for the new town, 
August, 14th, 1658, and was named New Harlem by 
request of Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch Governor. 
Francois, with several others, became dissatisfied soon 
afterwards, owing to excessive taxation by the Dutch 
and went to Esopus, near the present Kingston, N. Y. 
It was here and at New Hurley, a near-by town, where 
he served as a soldier in Capt. Pawling' s Company, in 
defense against the Indians. He was at Kingston, N. 
Y., as a soldier, when the little town was invested for 
three weeks by a band of several hundred Indians ; 
after a year of terror, known as the Esopus War, 
peace was concluded with the Indian tribes, July 14th, 
1660. 

Francois Le Seur was born in Challe, or Colmenil, 
in Normandy, a small borough or market town three 
miles south of Dieppe. His name, taking such forms 
as Leseur, Lesier, Lagear, and Logier, was well estab- 



^ 



The Lasher Genealogy 15 

lished in Caux, and a century previous had figured 
among the cloth makers of Rouen. Francois and his 
sister came over together, neither being married. 
["LeSeur was a French Huguenot and one of those 
who emigrated to Virginia, and it is probable that 
those who settled in New York — Solomon and others 
^came up from there." — Va. Hist. Soc, Feb. 1886.]. 

As to whether he was a brother of Solomon La 
Chair, a well known lawyer in those days and con- 
spicuous for accurate records left by him, it is inter- 
esting to read : " Solomon La Chair, or another of that 
ilk, lived in the Esopus, or the region around the 
present Kingston, Ulster County, N. Y. , having gone 
there after the New Netherlands became New York 
City and province — I believe the name Lasher is an 
adaptation, by way of Holland, of the French name 
La Chair." " That so many Lashers are found in Ger- 
mantown, Columbia County, and also in Ulster County, 
is easily accounted for by the fact that Solomon, and 
others with their children, went to Kingston, for it 
was in those places, and their vicinity, that their 
children raised their families." 

The record of Francois Le Seur's marriage is in the 
Dutch Reformed Church, New York, which reads as 



l6 The Lasher Genealogy 

follows : "Francois Lejere Van Scalmeny by Dieppe, 
in Franckryk, en jannetge Hillebrants, Van Amster- 
dam, July 12, 1659." Translated, reads as follows: 
Francois Lejere from Scalmeny, near Dieppe, in 
France, married Jannet Hillebrants from Amsterdam, 
Holland, July 12, 1659. 

The marriage record of Francois is that he married 
Jannet Hillebrants, which means, Jannet the daughter 
of Hillebrant— she was, in fact, the daughter of Hil- 
lebrand Paterson, of Amsterdam, Holland. 

His sister, Jannet LaSeur, married Cornelius A. 
Viervant, of Utrecht, Oct. 28, 1668, and took up their 
residence in New Harlem, N. Y. Francois resided for 
a time in New Harlem and was living in Kingston, N. 
Y., before his marriage ; immediately after the cere- 
mony returned there with his wife, and it was there 
they made their home. From Kingston, the children 
of Francois moved and made their homes and raised 
their families in the settlements of Ulster and sur- 
rounding counties. One of these children, John, re- 
sided in the vicinity of West Camp, N. Y., settled by 
the Palatines in 1709-10. 

Here, John was brought in intimate contact with 
the Germans, and the families speedily intermarried ; 



The Lasher Genealogy i^ 

in a generation or two, all the peculiarities of 
language, dress and habit of the Frenchman had dis- 
appeared and the German customs and influences 
dominated, nothing was left save the name and this 
was spelled in many ways. In the Kingston, New 
York and other records, kept by the early churches, 
the name is variously spelled : Langer, Langier, 
Langigar, Langeer, Legier, Lachair, Lessier, Lachier, 
Lesser, Lescier, Lesier, Lasier, Lescher, Leisier, Lisier, 
Lashier, Liesier, Lasier, Leshier, Lusier, Luzier, 
Lazier, Lezier, Lizier, Lissier, Lazhier, Loejeer, Logier, 
Leysier, Lezear, Leycher, Lisser, Litzert, Lygher, 
Lycher, Laejaer, Lescherin, Loescher, Loscher, Lasser, 
Leyer, LeChaire. 

In the records, edited by Fernow for New York 
City, the name is spelled La Scheer and La Chair. 

There seems to have been no recorded signature of 
any of the names in the Hudson River settlements 
until Dec. 30th, 1701, when John's name, signed to a 
petition is spelled Jno. Lashair. Again in a petition 
to Lord Cornbury, Oct. 2nd, 1702, as a resident of 
Ulster County, it is spelled Jan. Losir. At about 
this time the other family of Lashers, who were of 
German descent, are recorded under the name Lasch- 



i8 The Lasher Genealogy 

erin and Loescher and the other spellings above noted, 
but in a generation or two the families were so merged 
that they were all known as of one name with its mul- 
titudenous spellings until 1721 ; when the name was 
universally pronounced, and in this year first spelled, 
Lasher. Up to this time, and for many years after- 
wards, Domines and every one else who had the 
keeping of records as part of their official duties, 
spelled the name phonetically, or Just as it sounded 
when spoken before them ; in many church records 
the same Domine spelled it in many different ways. 
Francois anglicized is Francis — thus we have living 
at Kingston, N. Y., in 1659, Francis Lasher, born 1625 
a French Hugenot " Who fled from the storms in his 
own country to find quiet in ours." He was a strong, 
resourceful man ; in the wilderness making a home ; 
fighting as a soldier in the Indian Wars ; all the while 
providing well for his family and inculcating the 
moral precepts as taught by the Church. 

His descendants have proved themselves worthy ; 
we have found them intensely loyal to the Colonial 
government and still more loyal to the cause of liberty 
as upholders of the Revolution. 

Francois was by profession a Civil Engineer, at 



The Lasher Genealogy 19 

which profession he worked as opportunity offered, 
but like all the other settlers of those days he follow- 
ed farming for a livelihood, indeed there was little 
else to do. 

He came from a distinguished family in Normandy 
as evidenced by the Historical Records and family 
Coat-of-Arms reproduced in this book. His brother 
was Eustace Le Seur, the celebrated painter, born in 
1617, and his grand-nephew was Jean F. Le Seur, the 
comi)oser, born in 1763 ; the attainments and brilliant 
achievements of some of the present generation show 
marked characteristics of their honored ancestors.

26 The Lasher Genealogy 

In connection with the record of John Edmund 
Lasher it may be said that the lives of successful men 
whose influence moulds the events of life by subduing 
adversity, and shaping toward their personal good 
each condition as it confronts them is always interest- 
ing and instructive; but it becomes more so when 
such lives present in combined view the elements of 
material success, blended with the completeness of 
moral attribute and the attractions of an unblemished 
reputation. Such characters stand out as the proofs 
of human progress, the illustrations of human dignity 
and worth, and as beacon lights to the generations 
which follow. The success of such a man is not, as 
some would consider, fortuitous; it is not the result of 
a chain of fortunate accidents; it is the logical result 
of a nature into which are infused the characteristics 
of a strong will, keen perception and indomitable 
energy, which utilized, have made their possessor a 
successful man. 

Mr. Lasher passed his boyhood days amidst the 
surroundings of a rural home. His father, though a 
man of limited means, was a highly respected member 
of the community, and one of the leading agricul- 
turists of the country. Here our subject passed an 



The Lasher Genealogy 27 

uneventful boyhood, availing himself of every oppor- 
tunity for schooling during the winter months at the 
district school. 

At the age of twenty-one, Mr. Lasher went to 
Saugerties, N. Y., and accepted a position as clerk in 
a store, a few months later he went to Coxsackie, 
N.Y., and became associated with his brother who was 
already in business there. Here he remained five 
years, and although the monotony may have been 
irksome, and the remuneration small, still the eX' 
perience was salutary, by familiarizing him with the 
routine of general business and a practical insight 
into commercial life. He was a close observer, quick 
to grasp opportunities afforded him to study human 
character as exemplified in the different individuals 
with whom he came in contact, and there is little 
doubt that the lessons learned at that country store 
were invaluable in moulding the future character of 
the man, and in giving him habits of method and 
organization, which qualified him in an eminent de- 
gree for the arduous and extensive operations in 
which he was destined to become engaged. In fact 
Mr. Lasher looked back upon that experience as one 
of the most profitable periods of his life. In 1853 he 



28 The Lasher Genealogy 

engaged in the general merchandise business at Cox- 
sackie having formed a partnership with Alfred Pal- 
mer for that purpose, which business continued until 
Jan. 1, 1857, when Mr. Lasher became a member of the 
firm of Shultis and Lasher of Saugerties. He retired 
from this firm Jan. 1, 1862, at which time he formed 
a partnership under the name of Russell and Lasher, 
this being dissolved by mutual consent Jan. 1, 1867, 
Mr. Lasher retiring. During these years his extensive 
dealings with the Hudson River Railroad Company 
had brought him into contact with the ofllcials of the 
road, with whom he had become personally acquainted 
and intimate. In 1867 he entered into a contract to 
supply a large bill of bridge and dimension timber for 
this Company and on the 25th of February started 
for Florida; arriving there he visited the lumber 
regions and then went on a similar trip through the 
lumber regions of Georgia. This even more favorably 
impressed him with the business. The lumber he had 
contracted to supply was delivered as per contract. 
His next contract was with W. H. Vanderbilt for 
175,000 pine ties, which were the first Southern pine 
railroad ties introduced in the North. From this time 
on he devoted his attention solely to this business, 



The Lasher Genealogy 29 

handling from thirty to thirty-five million feet of ties 
and timber annually. 

Mr, Lasher always found time to devote to the 
general welfare of the community in which he lived, 
and he gave liberally of his time and means towards 
public and charitable enterprises. He gave a mag- 
nificent pipe organ to the Reformed Church, of which 
he was a consistent member and elder for many years. 
He presented a fine bell to the First Baptist Church of 
his town, and a similar one to the Methodist Church 
of Bristol, New York. 

During the latter years of his life Mr. Lasher was 
an extensive traveller. He visited every state and 
capitol city in the Union, except Dallas. He was a 
thorough American and believed that within the 
limits of his own country the scenery was as beautiful 
and attractive as that in other lands. 

He was an ardent Republican from the foundation 
of that party until the day of his death — and though 
many times importuned, would never accept public 
office. 

When the Ulster County Savings Institution had 
become involved, a few of the public men of Kingston 
were laboring zealously to avert a calamity by effecting 



30 The Lashef Genealogy 

a new organization of the bank upon a sound basis; 
these gentlemen appealed to Mr. Lasher to serve as 
one of the new board of officers. He could only accept 
the position at a considerable sacrifice of time and 
perhaps business loss, yet his interest in matters of 
such public welfare to his County was so strong that 
he accepted, and the new organization was successfully 
accomplished and at the first meeting of the board of 
directors he was elected vice-president, a position he 
held continuously until his retirement, due to failing 
health. He also served for many years as a director 
of the First National Bank of Saugerties. He spent 
the sunset of his years in his pleasant home at Saug- 
erties-on-Hudson, surrounded by the comforts and 
luxuries of a competence. His success was due to his 
own personal efforts and untiring industry, while 
honor and integrity were his guiding stars. In his 
death he was sincerely mourned by all. To his 
descendants he left the priceless heritage of a good 
name. 

The only child of John Edmund Lasher and his 
wife Catharine Elizabeth Wilson was:

The Lasher Genealogy 33 

and his wife Mary Von Vredenburg, Jason was a 
son of Capt. John Gillespy, b. 1773 at Saugerties and 
bnried there, d. 1852, and his wife Lavinia Myers. 
Capt John was a son of Major John Gillespy, b. 1741; 
d. Jan. o, 1810, and his wife Rachel Smedes, b. 1742; 
d. 1825. Major John was the son of John Gillespy 
who was of the old Scotch family of this name, well 
known in the north of Scotland. 

Mary Von Vredenburg, wife of Jason Gillespy was 
a descendant of William Von Vredenburg who came 
to New Amsterdam in 1658 in the ship "Gilded 
Beaver." He was a soldier in the Dutch West India 
Service, lived at fort "William Hendrick" in 1673, 
and in the new fortification of New Orange. He 
removed to Esopiis, now Kingston, N. Y., in 1667. 
He married in New Amsterdam Oct. 19, 1674, 
Appolonia Barents of New Netherland. 

Among the business men of Saugerties no one 
holds a more prominent place than Alfred P. Lasher 
who is interested in many of the important enterprises 
of Ulster County. He was born in Coxsackie, Greene 
Co., from which place his father John Edmond 
Lasher removed when he was but three years old. 

His education was acquired in the public schools 



34 The Lasher Genealogy 

of Saugerties, which was supplemented by a course 
of study at Glens Falls and Hudson Academies. 

He has been a deep student of business methods in 
which lines he has but few equals. 

When he was eighteen years old, he entered the 
employ of Burhans & Brainerd, remaining with them 
as a clerk for one year when failing health compelled 
a rest for six months. 

He next engaged as shipping clerk with John 
Maxwell at Maiden remaining there nearly two years. 

In 1881, Mr. Lasher went south and was engaged 
in shipping turpentine and yellow pine, familiarizing 
himself thoroughly with the details of that business. 
On his return he worked for his father for five years, 
during which time he was thoroughly drilled in the 
application of strict business methods 

At the end of five years he was taken into partner- 
ship and for many years thereafter assumed the man- 
agement of the large operations in which the firm was 
engaged; their business was furnishing yellow pine 
lumber, ties and bridge lumber being their specialty. 

The business was founded by the elder Mr. Lasher, 
but the energy and ability of the son added much to 



The Lasher Genealogy 35 

the success of the firm, which enjoyed the full confi- 
dence of all with whom they had dealings. 

In politics, Mr. Lasher is a Republican and al- 
though he never aspired to office holding, he was 
prevailed upon to accept one term as Mayor of Sau- 
gerties to which office he was elected to serve for the 
year 1898. He was a member of the County Central 
Committee for many years. He has been a member of 
the Board of Education since its organization and has 
been honored by election to its various offices; this 
service has extended over a period of eleven years. 
He is also one of the trustees of the Village Corpora- 
tion. He is president of the Free Public Library of 
Saugerties. 

On the death of his father he succeeded him as a 
director in the Ulster County Savings Bank of Kings- 
ton which position he held for four years, at the 
expiration of which time he felt that he should give 
his entire time to the First National Bank of Sauger- 
ties of which he has been a director for the past six 
years. He has also been a director in the Saugerties 
Savings Bank for the past four years. 

Mr. Lasher has always been much interested in 



36 The Lasher Genealogy 

the Reformed Church of which at the present time 
he is an Elder. 

He is also a member of the Exempt Firemen of 
Saugerties. Socially he belongs to a number of Fra- 
ternities among them the Scottish Rights of the 
Northern Jurisdiction of New York. He was made 
a thirty-second Degree Mason, May 29, 1891; is a 
member Mecca Temple of Shrines of New York City. 
He is a man of energy, one who believes in making a 
success of his life work and who so far has prospered 
in whatever he has undertaken. He is a prominent 
and much respected citizen in the community in 
which he lives.

SEBASTIAN LOESCHER 

No. 200 to No. 1745 



The period from 1702-1727 marks an epoch in the 
early German emigration. Between forty and sixty 
thousand left their native country. The unparalled 
ravages and desolations by the troops of Louis XIY 
under Turenne were the stern prelude to bloody per- 
secutions. To escape the dreadful sufferings awaiting 
them, German and other protestants emigrated to the 
English Colonies in America. In 1708 and 1709, 
thirty-three thousand on an invitation of Queen Anne, 
left their homes in the Rhine country for London, 
where some twelve or fifteen thousand arrived in the 
summer of 1708. Ten sails of vessels were freighted 
with upwards of four thousand Germans for New 
York. They departed on or about the 2oth of De- 
cember, 1709, and after a six months tedious voyage 
reached New York in June, 1710. On the inward 
passage and immediately on landing it is estimated 
seventeen hundred died. The survivors were en- 
camped in tents they had brought with them from 



.^8 The Lasher Genealogy

England, on Nutting, now Governors Island. Here 
they remained till late in Autumn when about four- 
teen hundred were removed one hundred miles up the 
Hudson River where they formed two settlements, 
one of these called East Camp, composed of four so- 
called "villages" (Hunterstown, Queensburg, Anns- 
burg and Hapsburg) was in the present town of Ger- 
mantown, Columbia County, and the other called 
West Camp, composed of three so-called "villages" 
(Elizabethtown, Georgetown and Newtown) was in 
the present town of Saugerties, Ulster County, but 
originally under the jurisdiction of Albany County. 
The widowed women, sickly men and orphan children 
remained in New York. Those settled on Hudson 
River were under indenture to serve Queen Anne as 
grateful subjects, to manufacture tar and raise hemp 
in order to repay their expenses of transportation, 
and cost of subsistence, to the amount of ten thousand 
pounds sterling, which had been advanced by Parlia- 
mentary grant. A supply of naval stores from this 
arrangement had been confidently anticipated. The 
experiment proved a complete failure. There was 
mismanagement. The Germans, being unjustly op- 
pressed, became dissatisfied with their treatment, and 



The Lasher Genealogy 49 

with their situation. Gov. Hunter resorted to violent 
measures to secure obedience to his demands. In this 
too, he failed. One hundred and fifty families, to 
escape the certainty of famishing, left late in the 
Autumn of 1712 for Schoharie Valley, some sixty 
miles northwest of Livingston Manor. After three 
weeks travel through the unbroken forests, they 
reached Schoharie. Here they remained some ten 
years, when owing to some defect in their titles, they 
were deprived of both lands and improvements. In 
the Spring of 1723 thirty-three families removed and 
settled in Pennsylvania, in Tulpehocken, some fifteen 
miles west of Reading. A few years afterward others 
followed them. The other dissatisfied Germans who 
did not choose to follow their friends to Pennsylvania 
sought for and found a future home on the frontiers 
of Mohawk Valley. Timothy Dwight writing pre- 
vious to 1822, says of the Germans of Germantown, 
N. Y. "A small collection of them at Germantown 
in the southwest corner of Columbia County have 
been mentioned to me by authority which I cannot 
dispute, as a very worthy and respectable body of 
people, distinguished for their industry, good order, 
sound morals and attachment to religion." 



50 The Lasher Genealogy 

Among the early settlers at West Camp, N. Y., we 
find Sebastian Loesclier with his wife and children. 
Some of the latter when of age crossed the Hudson 
River to East Camp, now Germantown, N. Y., and 
there raised their families. 

As to the antecedents of Sebastian Lasher little is 
known except that he was probably a German. It is 
unknown from which part or place in Germany he 
came ; there is no record yet discovered which would 
show that he was a Palatine or was not a Palatine. 
We know this simple fact in regard to him ; he was at 
West Camp in 1710. That he came to West Camp 
with his wife and several of his children is proven be- 
yond question, for in the marriage record of his son 
George in 1726 it is distinctly stated that he is the 
son of Sebastian. George having been married in 
1726, is of evidence that he was born previous to the 
first settlement of the Palatines at West Camp. 

It may be conceded by some and taken for granted 
by others that he was a Palatine, but it is not proven. 
There is no proof that he was a German. The fact 
that he attended the German Lutheran Church or the 
Dutch Reformed Church is no evidence, as the settlers 
of all nations made one of these two churches the 



The Lasher Genealogy 51 

House of Worsliip for themselves and their children. 
There are many in the family who believe that the first 
Sebastian Lasher was a descendant of Solomon La 
Chaire of New York, the lawyer practising there in 
1645 to 1662, and given the Old German name of Se- 
bastian because born and brought up in the midst of 
Germans. 

In substantiation of this belief there are many 
theories. There are those who claim (and their claim 
is entitled to more than a passing consideration) that 
he was an older brother of John Lasher whose des- 
cendants are given in the third part of this book. 
This John having come with him to this country and 
remaining in New York as an apprentice in the Cord- 
wainer's trade. The fact that no land titles were 
given to the early settlers at East and West Camp, is 
of itself good reason, why no authentic record is now 
to be had concerning the early life and possessions of 
these people. 

Subjected to desolating persecutions, the Luth- 
erans in Germany and Huguenots in France, the cul- 
tured and educated, as well as the poor who had had 
no opportunities, were alike driven to seek new homes 
in foreign lands. All indications point towards a 



52 The Lasher Genealogy 

higher state of advancement for Sebastian Lasher 
than was usual amongst the immigrants. 

The story of the Palatines is here-with given be- 
cause the immediate descendants of Sebastian Lasher 
took their wives and husbands from amongst these 
people, and therefore there is probably not any of 
this family but are connected with the early Palatine 
settlers. Of Sebastian Lasher, the only positive re- 
cord is the record of the birth of his daughter Maria 
Elizabeth, and her baptism in the church at West 
Camp in 1710, and in the record that he was willing 
to stay at West Camp in 1724 if lands were surveyed 
to him. 

Under the heads of families mention is made in 
but few instances, as to the occupation of these 
people ; they are largely farmers and fruit growers of 
the better class. The early settlers came from parts 
of Germany which have been among the best culti- 
vated portions of Euroj^e, and naturally took to farm- 
ing. Other pursuits were followed, it is true, but the 
prevailing pursuit was agriculture. In the classified 
list of those who reached London during the great 
German Exodus in 1709, more than 67 per cent were 
farmers. 



The Lasher Genealogy 53 

Nine tenths of the Palatines who came to New 
York during this Exodus left the city and went into 
the country, and most of them took to farming. In 
fact there was nothing else for them to get at for 
many years. Even most of those who had mechanical 
trades were compelled to take to farming because 
there was not much of a demand for bakers, glass- 
blowers, millers, engravers, and some other classes of 
handicraftsmen. So it is with many of the descend- 
ants of Sebastian Lasher— they are doing the farming 
on their fertile acres— adjacent to their neighbors who 
are nearly all descendants of the first farmer Palatine 
immigrants. As a rule these people have attended 
strictly to the business of farming and are well to do. 

The occupation of land by the early settlers was 
subject to a system known as Quit Rent, which was 
a reserved rent in grant of land by the Proprietary— 
by the payment of which the landholder was to be 
freed from the other taxes.

clergyman. Many a wayfarer on life's journey, sick 
and aweary of the world, has sought him out, and 
now restored in health and strength, live to call him 
friend. Greater praise than this no man can have.

Company in 1738, gradually by merit alone working

Grenadier and Light Infantry, each comiiany having 
a special uniform of its own. 

On Nov. 10, 1769, the King's birthday was cele- 
brated by the usual grand display. "On this occasion 
the Militia Company of Grenadiers were called out 
and mustered at the house of Mr. John Marthal at the 
North River, where they roasted an ox at their own 
expense, drank jovially all the Loyal Toasts and con- 
cluded the evening with exhibiting a variety of 
curious fireworks." On the the 25 th of July, 1763, 
the New York Gazette says of a celebration on Tues- 
day last of His Majesty's proclamation for a general 
peace between England, Spain and Portugal. "The 
Militia was ordered out for the occasion, and the pro- 
cession of the Lieut. -Governor with His Majesty's 
Council, attended by all the principal gentlemen of 
the place, preceded by the company of Grenadiers 
(who made an excellent appearance)." 

John Lasher was first Lieutenant in the above 
company of Independent Grenadiers under command 
of the Earl of Sterling, Capt., as shown by details for 
guard duty in 1765. 

In the beginning of May, 1775, Capt. John Lasher 
and his Company march out seven miles to meet 



222 The Lasher Genealogy 

and escort the Eastern Delegates on their way to 
Philadelphia ; on arrival of the delegates in New 
York they were warmly welcomed by the citizens. 
At a meeting of the Committee of Safety, Aug. 11, 

1775, Col. Lasher's battalion is mentioned, on Sept. 
14, 1775, he is requested to make a return of his 
officers in order that they may be commissioned. 

On Nov. 14, 1775, he was on the committee of sixty 
for observation ; on May 1st, same year, he was elected 
one of the Committee of Safety ; on April 26th, same 
year, he is one of the signers for provincial Congress, 
and on the 21st of Sept. signs an address to the Com- 
mittee of Safety. 

On Jan. 26, 1776, Col. Lasher signified to the Com- 
mittee of Safety, that the battalion under his command 
would in general be very desirous of being taken into 
the public service and pay, and he was requested to 
confer with his officers and report the result to the 
committee. At a meeting of the officers of the first 
battalion of New York Independent Militia, Jan. 29, 

1776, Col. Lasher being President, the battalion voted 
on the question of entering the service, and on Jan. 
31, 1776, Col. Lasher delivered a memorandum of such 
officers of his regiment as are willing to go into the 



The Lasher Genealogy 223 

Continental Service ; 32 having voted to serve. On 
Feb. 11, 1776, Col. Lasher was ordered by the Com- 
mittee to detail officers and men of his regiment to 
escort Samuel Bayard, Jr., Esq., the Deputy Secretary 
of the Colony, to the dwelling house of Nicholas Bay- 
ard, Esq., Alderman of the Out Ward of the city. 

Fred Rhinelander writing to Peter Van Schaak, 
Feb. 23, 1776, says "We are going to raise a new bat- 
talion. Col. Lasher and Governeur Morris are candi- 
dates for the command; as both gentlemen have great 
merit it is hard to tell which will succeed." 

On Feb. 28, 1776, at a meeting of the Provincial 
Congress, held in New York, the Hon. John Hancock, 
Esq., President of the Continental Congress, nomin- 
ated John Lasher as a Colonel in one of the four regi- 
ments to be raised for the defence of the Colony. 

Nicholas Bayard on March 4, 1776, requests the 
Congress that the Grenadier Company of Col. Lasher's 
Regiment having behaved so prudently as a guard at 
his house where the colonial records are kept, may be 
continued, and not be replaced by some other company; 
this guard consisted of 48 men divided into details of 
twelve men each ; each detail serving 24 hours. 

On May 29, 1776, Col. Lasher and his officers 



224 The Lasher Genealogy 

handed in their accounts for services, in pursuance of 
an order of the Provincial Congress, dated March 14, 
1776. They were ordered paid same as Continental 
officers and soldiers. On July 17, 1777, Col. Lasher 
had charge of the stores of powder and lead belonging 
to the Continentals, as on this day the Congress orders 
him to deliver 100 pounds of powder and 300 weight 
of lead to Col. John Harper for use of the Rangers to 
be raised under his command, and on Aug. 13, 1777, 
he was ordered to deliver 100 small arms and accoutre- 
ments to Col. Graham. 

John Lasher was a prisoner. May 11, 1778, in the 
old Provost Jail, New York City, as a member of 
Major Goutches' Rangers ; he was soon exchanged. 

During the War of the Revolution, he superin- 
tended and his regiment built what has since been 
known as the Bayard Hill Battery, N. Y., this Battery 
was built where the present Grand and Mulberry Sts. 
intersect ; Col. Lasher and his regiment were thanked 
by Washington in General Orders. 

Colonel John Lasher lived on the Battery, New 
York City, and appears to have been a man of some 
wealth, as at the fire Sept. 12, 1776, four houses be- 
longing to him were burned. He built two houses in 



The Lasher Genealogy 225 

1780 opposite the mansion built for the President's 
residence, as shown in a picture in "Early New York 
Houses." In 1806, his son John B. sold the corner 
house for 89,400.00; the other for $8,800.00. After 
the Revolutionary War he was a merchant in the 
wholesale grocery business. He was appointed first 
Surveyor of the Port of New York when the custom 
house was established, Nov. 18, 1784. From his early 
manhood, he took a great interest in local affairs. 
On March 18, 1776, in a petition to the King by the 
prominent Presbyterians of New York City, he ap- 
pears as one of them. On August 20, 1770, he, with 
others, applied for a charter of incorporation for the 
Society of Cordwainers, Children by first wife:

Wm. Kent, b. March 19, 1858, at Fishkill 
Landing, N, Y. 

Resides at Tuxedo, N. Y. 

His line of distinguished ancestry is as follows: 
William, b. March 19, 1858; James, b. Sept. 25, 1830; 
Judge William, b. Oct. 2, 1802; Chancellor James, 
b. July 31, 1763; Moss, b. Jan. 14, 1733; Elisha, D.D., 
b. July 9, 1704; John, b. 1664. Mr. Kent is a well 
known lawyer of New York City with offices at 80 
William Street. Children: 

2133. William, Jr., b. April 14, 1882. 

2134. Emily L., b. Oct. 23, 1884. 

2135. Peter L., b. March 3, 1887. 

2136. Richard, b. Feb. 5. 1894. 

Richard Kent (2136), 3d son of William Kent and 
Emily Lorillard (great-great granddaughter of Col. 
John Lasher), was born in New York at 39 West 19th 
Street, Feb. 5th, 1894, and is the youngest male de- 
scendant of Col. Lasher. 

When the photograph was taken from which this 
picture is engraved, he was about three years of age. 
He was a very small child, weighing under three 




RICHARD KEXT

pounds when he was born, but was always strong, 
vigorous and free from sickness. He is iDurely Ameri- 
can in his descent on every line and unites in himself 
many strains distinguished in the early days of the 
Republic. The Kent line traces its descent back to 
Thomas Kent who came to America and settled with 
his wife at Gloucester, Mass., prior to 1634. (See 
Kent Genealogy^ page 159.) In the Kent line are 
found the names of the Rev. Elisha Kent, who gradu- 
ated from Yale College in 1729, and married Abigail, 
daughter of the Rev. Joseph Moss. Elisha Kent was 
a distinguished Presbyterian Divine. His son, Moss 
Kent, who married Hannah Rogers, daughter of Dr. 
Uriah Rogers, was the father of James Kent, Chancel- 
lor of the State of New York, and author of KenVs 
Commentaries on American Law. He was the great- 
great grandfather of Richard Kent. Through his 
paternal great grandmother, Richard Kent is de- 
scended from Caleb S. Riggs, a celebrated chancery 
lawyer of New Jersey early in the Nineteenth Century. 
On his father's mother's side, Richard Kent's grand- 
mother was the daughter of Edwin Clark who married 
Sarah Irving, the niece of Washington Irving. 

The Clark line is also very old and is identified 



242 The Lasher Genealogy 

with New York history to the very earliest date, as 
Edwin Clark was the direct descendant of Alexander 
Clark who married Femmetje Van Borsum at the 
Reformed Dutch Church in New York City, Jan. 13, 
1714. Femmetje Van Borsum was the daughter of 
Hermanns Van Borsum, who was the eldest son of 
Egbert Van Borsum who married Annetje Hendricks, 
Dec. 11, 1639, at New Amsterdam (New York). The 
record of this marriage shows it to be the earliest 
church marriage that was performed in the Dutch 
Colony. It was celebrated by the Rev. Everadus 
Bogardus and the entry is thus recorded: 

" Dec. 11, 1639, Egbert Van Borsum j. m. van Emb- 
den en Annetje Hendricks j. d. van Amsterdam." 

On his mother's side, Richard Kent is also de- 
scended from the elder branch of the Lorillard family, 
who some time prior to the Revolution, came to New 
York and entered into business and became very suc- 
cessful merchants. He can also through his great 
grandmother, Catharine A. Griswold, who married 
Peter Lorillard, trace his descent to the direct line of 
New England Griswold s.
