David (Delator, Delader) De Lattre, Jr.

The following was taken from the book "De Lauter Families in America 1982",
a Genealogy by: Pauline Grace De Lauter Fry.

An emigration record of 1741 was found for a David De Lattre living at that time in Edenkoben, Germany. It is assumed that David Delator arriving on the ship Saint Andrew 2 Oct 1741 and the David De Lattre of the emigration record in Germany are one and the same person.

Very little is known of this early family. The will of David Delader, written 30 Apr. 1757 and probated 18 Feb. 1767, speaks of "George William Delader (my eldest son) and Maudelina Silver, wife of Mathias Silver (my loving daughter). My dear wife Anna Barbara Delader and my living children Johannes Delader, Catherine Delader and Barbara Delader."
Anna Barbara Delader, wife of David Delader was the daughter of Johannes George Kelli, born 29 Sept. 1707 in Harsfeld Durlach. Her first husband was Jacob Hess. The church record states that she and David had 2 daughters and one son all living at her death 24 Sept. 1783.
An emigration record found in Germany for Anna Elisabetha Seyffert "married to David Delator and emigrated with him."
From the above records we assume David Delader who emigrated from Germany in 1741 to have been married three times.
I found no further records in Maryland of George Delader, son of David Delader.

(It is believed that that Phillipp Lorenz and Lawrence is the same person.)
