    I am the great granddaughter of John Laushe (name is misspelled. Should be Lanshe) who appears in this 1870 census. John Lanshe had a son Frederick who had a son Harold who was my father. Frederick relocated to Allentown and raised his family of 14 children there. My father and his brother John relocated to Harrisburg and both were physicians in the Harrisburg area from the 1930s through 1980s. If anyone has any other information about this family, I would appreciate hearing from you. Great job on this website! Thanks!

    Comment by James Robison: I went back to the original census records and the penmanship could be read either as a “u” or a “n.” Since you have given me the correct spelling, I will go in and make the correction to the records on this site. Thank you for your help. I hope someone is able to help you out with your request on the Harrisburg information and thank you for your compliment.

    Hello, I am the daughter of jzemaitis and so the great great granddaughter of John Lanshe. I am researching this line and am trying to find out when the spelling changed from the original German spelling of Lansche to the modern Lanshe. Perhaps the handwriting could have been showing “Lansche”? Thank you very much for considering this.
