I descend from Susannah Lanphier, b. abt 1729, probably Co. Tipperary,
Ireland and d. 1799, Fairfax County, Virginia. She had a sister Venus and a
brother Going. According to postings on Ancestral File and elsewhere, they
were children of Thomas Lanphier and Elizabeth Going of Co. Tipperary,
Ireland. Undefined sources say they came first to Accomack Co., Virginia
abt 1732 and to Port Tobacco, Charles Co., Maryland later. Thomas is
reported to have died 1741/42 in Port Tobacco and Elizabeth in Alexandria,
Virginia after 1767.
Susannah Lanphier m. John Patterson and they had three children: William,
Thomas, and Bette. He died about 1768, probably while on a trip to Europe.
Bette Patterson was b. 1764 in Virginia and d. 1800 in Fairfax Co.,
Virginia. she m. John Hereford III, a soldier of the Revolution. They had
five sons who I have full information on and can share. After Bette's death
John Hereford III married again and moved to Mason Co., VA, now West
I am searching for proof /documentation of parents of Susannah, Venus, and
Going Lanphier and for documentation of the Lanphier and Going families in
Ireland - specifically families and ancestors of Thomas Lanphier and
Elizabeth Going who immigrated to America abt. 1732.
Thank you for joining the Lanphear / Lamfier / etc. list. We hope you will share your problems and findings regarding this family. You need only to join one spelling of the surname as messages are sent to all four I handle.
