Research Notes

An tree from hjlawson says he was born 1776 in Germany and died in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. A Family Tree from barbarfevenas Ancestry tree lists him marrying to Borgle (b, 1846, Meklenburg, Germany) in 1870. It lists her marrying a John Lorman and having a child with this other John Lorman in 1878 name John. Not out of the realm of possibility.

The facts attached to this Ancestry information is for a family of John Lorman living in Rochester, NY in 1880.

It appears that barabarafevens who shows descent through Ada Lorman Hamm may have the Nova Scotia Lormans confused with the Rochester, NY Lormans? Or did Borgle marry William, then later Mary a John who settled in Rochester?

Possible Origins

The original German Immigrants to Canada came from Southwest Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The Second immigration was more general and the third was generally Germany and Germans who were in the US and preferred the British to the US during revolutionary times, so this included Germans from mainly Pennsylvania and New York.

German Immigration to US/Canada for Timeframe

A William Lorman was a member of the Pennsylvania-German Society

A William Lorman was a contemporary, prosperous Gentleman in MD.[1]

{ Interesting history of how the Germans came to be in the Halifax area of Nova Scotia]

Though this may not be the right time or the right place for William (unless the Ancestry Tree about his death in Lunenburg is to be believed) it still may be helpful: Lunenburg First Families
