Donald, Looking at the handwritten census records, you find many creative ways to spell names! In 1930, your line was spelled Larrew, in 1920 Larrew, in 1910 Larrew,1900 Larew,1880 Larew, 1870 Larrew, 1850 Larrew, 1840 Larew. 1830, if I have located the right family- Lerew. 1810 Lerew, 1800 Lerrew, So I think it is safe to say this line of Larew/LaRue has always gone by the rew ending, sometimes with a single r, sometimes with a double r. How sure are you that Jacob and his older brother john were in York county PA? If you are positive they were there in the early 1800's then maybe you can start researching for them from the other side of your brick wall. Most of the Larews in York county PA were descendants of Jonas La Rue b.@1670 Lindau france, fled in 1686 to the palatinate city of Stienweiller. He migrated to New York by Dec 1708 and was in Lancaster county PA by 1712. He had 8 children- `1.Peter 1702-1759.2.Abraam b.between 1702 and 1709, d.1757.3.Johan George 1709-1770.4.Isaac 1711-1770.5.Margaret 1713-1794.6.Jonas 1716-1761.7.Mary @1718? 8. Henry. That should be enough to get you started.
