I am the son of Dean Pearson Lorah Jr. whose parents lived in Harrisburg. I have just started my search for my family history. My father has (or had) a cousin Robert Lorah son of John Lorah who was Dean P.'s nephew. Does anyone have any information on this line of the family? I am interested also in the origin of the Lorah name. I have heard it is of German or French origin perhaps from AlSace Lorraine (sp?). Please reply.
