Sorry I'm so long answering you. My e-mail was down a lot in Oct. and I lost a lot of mail so if Gen forum notified me, I didn't get it and I had not been checking it since I had no replies at first.We do not know where Jacob Lash was born but we think ourLash Family came from Germany at some time.Jacob was born Oct. 23, 1796, died Feb 22, 1863 or 1868. I see I posted the wiveswrong--He first married Jane Par(r)ish born Nov 4, 1805. She died Nov 30, 1845. He married Hannah Corder born Nov 30 1822 died 1882. Jacob and Hannah lived near St.Louis MO in later years but may have been in NY at one time. One son by the first marriage was Jacob P. Lash. Would like to correspond with anyone doing this line.
