It looks like John F. Lont (1795-1848) buried at Ostrom Cem., Madison Co., NY was a 1st
cousin, not a son of Matthias Lont. He was born 10 July 1795 and baptized at Caughnawaga
Ref. Ch. in Fonda, Montgomery Co., son of Killian Landt & Machtel Van Beuren. Killian
was the son of Johannes Lant & Sara Winne baptized 29 Jun 1765 at Claverack Ref. Ch.
Kiliaan Lant & Machteltje Van Buuren were married 10 Feb 1785 at Kinderhook Ref. Ch.
John Lont married Beulah Ostrom (1798-1845), the daughter of Stephen Ostrom (1767-1841)
& Electa Hinman, who were married 1791 at the Schenectady Ref. Ch. I'm related to
the Ostroms and Hinmans through different lines and a few Lants married into my Harder
family. According to Palatine expert Henry Z. Jones, the Lant and Harder families both
originated near the village of Horn, just north of Simmern in the Pfalz, Germany, where
the church records show the earliest known ancestor as Adam Landt, the gggg grandfather of
John and Matthias Lont.
