Generation Two

Abraham Lawshe was born on 12 May 1732 in Krefeld, Germany.15 He died on 20 Dec 1819 in Amwell, Hunterdon County, NJ at age 87. He was also known as Abraham Lausche.16 He was also known as Abraham Van Laschett.17

3. Abraham2 Picklesimer Sr (Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born before 1729.18 He married Christenah (--?--).19,20,21
He and Christenah (--?--) lived between 1782 and 1790 Botetourt County, VA. He and Christenah (--?--) lived between 1791 and 1795 Montgomery County, VA.22 He and Christenah (--?--) lived between 1796 and 1802 Botetourt County, VA.

4. John2 Picklesimer Sr (Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1732. He married Sophia Slingluff, daughter of Henry Slingluff, circa 1753 PA.25,26 He married Anne (--?--) circa 1759. He married Elizabeth Rinker, daughter of (--?--) Rinker, circa 1780.27,28,29 He died after 1805 Franklin County, VA.30
He was also known as Bechtelheimer. Note: date of birth estimated from date on birth of eldest child, John, Jr. He was a reedmaker.31 Note that census enumerations, Aaron Sargent Behymer's diary, etc for the most part, indicate VA as the birthplace of most of John, Sr's children. This is not consistent with the known location of John, Sr via land transactions where he seems to have migrated from the PA/NJ area to Frederick County, MD circa 1770, then on to Botetourt/Montgomery County, VA circa 1780 and then on to Franklin County, VA circa 1795. One of the census enumerations for John, Sr's son, Nathaniel, does, however, indicate MD as Nathaniel's birthplace (and in other census enumerations his birthplace is listed as VA). Most of John, Sr's children undoubtedly grew up in VA, and so, in the author's opinion, VA was listed as their birthplace by the census takers incorrectly. He was naturalized in NJ on 11 Aug 1755. This was a necessary requirement to allow him to purchase land. He lived on 10 Mar 1761 in Amwell, Hunterdon County, NJ. He lived between 1771 and 1778 Frederick County, MD.
