    In 1812 Henry Lapp of Hamburg Germany had settled in Canada at Cedar Grove Markham Ontario. Somewhere shortly after Henry settling to Canada he met an Elizabeth Waldnbarger {Dutch she settled to Pennsylvania}.
    Their third son Andrew Lapp son was born January 8 1824 and settled to Pickering Ontario Canada in 1846. His first lot was the south half Lot31, Con 8. and in 1850 Lot31 con 9.
    In 1849 Andrew had married to a Mary Jane Paul. Andrew was 26yrs old and Mary Jane was 19. Mary Jane Paul was born January 15 1830 in Bella Bay, co. Monaghan Ireland. The family had lived in the house on Lot31, con 9. which was previously leased to a Samuel Palmer Jr.
    Andrew and Mary Jane's children: Elizabeth, Esther, Levi, Emma and Evelina{Twins}, Seth and Samuel{Twins}, Amos, David, Alexander and Ida. Wow that's a lot of kids! Holy moly!
    Andrew was a well known farmer in the Pickering Twp. He grew and cured tobacco for his own use. He would make the tobacco into plugs using wooden molds. One of his daughters{Ida} remembers his teeth were soo worn down on one site from chewing. It was also known that Andrew himself was seen running in his farm field. He claims he was being chased by...the devil! This had happened on more than one occasion.
    Andrew Lapp died in 1889. Mary Jane died 1919 at her daughter's house{Ida} in Mount Albert.
