You can try applications for Sons of the American Revolution. One of her descendants, Herbert Gerhard, files under her name. Check Lauer men who served from Berks,PA. Possibly Major Johann Christian Lauer.

The problem with Johann Christian Lauer is that he has another child born the same year. Could be twins, I suppose?  JCL is very well documented due to his group keeping a diary of their crossing and his sisters' marriages to Thiess and Ruth. There is no mention of Salome.

Gerhard (tenant, Clyde Schell). The present barn on the Adam 
Gerhart farm was built by the ancestor Peter, though this tract 
was not his first homestead in America. The Arbogast family 
was the first owner of these hills and meadows later tilled by the 
Gerharts. The name is mentioned in the earlier baptismal rec-
