Peterson, Lemuel

Peterson, Lemuel

28 March, 2001. Seek proof of parents of Lemuel Peterson, born 1764, presumably in Cumberland Co, NJ. In his application for a Revolutionary War pension, which was rejected, he claims he "left his father's house in Cumberland Co, NJ in 1785 to become a privateer". One unsourced old family history book names siblings Henry, William and Jane. Located Henry and William's baptismal records, but none for Lemuel or Jane. Was his father Laurens Peterson? Did Laurens move from Cumberland Co NJ to Gloucester Co NJ? Was Lemuel perhaps born in Gloucester Co and moved back to Cumberland Co? This Henry and William moved to WV, then descendants of one on to KY. Lemuel moved to Deleware, then Ohio territory, then Indiana, then Illinois where he died sometime before 1850. Lemuel was apparently much married, with at least 4 wives and possibly 15 children. Any assistance will be sincerely appreciated. rshep70683@aol.com

Thank you for writing. I believe your Lemuel Davis Peterson is the nephew of the Lemuel I seek. Laurens Peterson had:
Henry
William
Lemuel
Nancy
Henry and William were born in Cumberland Co, NJ and baptized there. Their father apparently moved to Gloucester Co NJ, and while I have no proof, I believe Laurens may have died there, and the boys, Henry and William moved to West Virginia. Lemuel moved to Deleware, then Ohio, then Indiana, then Illinois where he died.

Do you have any information on Lemuel, son of Laurens, and brother of William and Henry?

Thanks for your lineage. I am really interested. Lemuel (1764-1855) supposedly married a full blood Cherokee Indian. Maybe one of his brothers did too. What is your family legend about the Indian?

Lemuel's father

You listed the father of William and of Henry as Laurens Peterson, born c 1740 Ireland. Is this fact or family legend? If fact, where is the documentation?

Lemuel as a brother to William and Henry is published in a book called something like Peterson Family, with no source for the information.

lemuel was the farther of charles herny peterson.william h. peterson was the son of laurens petersonborn 1740. sweden. acording to ancestry.com-worldconect project.these co-inside with leter's from family member's. i had a rough time reading them because of shakey hand writing of a 90 yearold woman. also checking through family record's of holbert- johns-smiths-currence-petersons-jacksons-andersons-allthe number's are very close.there is some margin of error but i am sending for birth and marrige certif. but as i have come across in the past some relitives were not recorded due to family fudes and poor recored keeping.when i started this quest it was too prove the cherokee blood line. i hit walls right off.but digging for one person led to some one elise before i knew it ihad relitives coming out of the woodwork's . half my finding's are from letter's from relitives athe other half are from serching the geology web page's. im swamped with tons of papper's with names and dates .iv'e started making family poster's to try and keep tract.it's time consuming but worth it when you find onegood leed.keep serching they are out there just waiting too be found.thank you very much for your interest.davein florida.

Laurens Peterson, c1740- Father of Lemuel?

How very fortunate you are to have family letters! I have none from Lemuel's family, only one written by my own grandmother, his descendant, in the 1930's. Old letters are more readable with a yellow transparency. Have you tried it? Does your letter regarding Laurens mention that he had 4 children? Charles, Henry, Lemuel and Nancy?

I'd be happy to send you a yellow transparency if you are unable to locate one.
