Janeen, I think you and I have been down this road before and I have given
this a lot of thought. Can't remember if I mentioned the will of John Lehn to
you before. He is listed as Jonathan Lehn in his will dated Apr. 15, 1775
which was probated May 26, 1783. Executor: Samuel Arnold. Paradise Township.
Wife: Margaret Lehn. Children: Peter, John, Catharine, Elizabeth, Hannah
Perhaps it would be helpful to you to obtain any estate papers to help
determine if this is your John listed among the children.
I would bet this is your John. I think we "spoke" before about the connection
between the Bakers and the Arnolds and Lehns.
Have you contacted Emmert Bittinger about this? He is much more knowledgeable
than I am on the Lehn family.
There is also a parallel between what you state about confusion with DAR
papers and Revolutionary service with a similar situation in the Arnold
line--Samuel Arnold is on the list of approved DAR ancestors--and I believe he
is STILL on the list. He even has a Revolutionary War marker on his
grave--however Emmert Bittinger has established that this is NOT our Samuel
