There are no LAPE entries in the Marriage License Index (1799-1860) also no entries in the Will and Estate Index (both by Morrow & Morrow.) These are both Wash,. Co. in Myer's index of marriage licenses for Frederick Co. there is a Jacob LAPE/Polly BRIM Sept. 13, 1800 entry,

There are two John Lape's in the 1790 census for Wash. Co. Maryland as well as a Henry.
If you have Ancestry there are a lot of family genealogies with him in it - some go back a generation from the first John.

Russell's Guide to Washington County Research indicates records for the Funkstown Reformed Church are held by the Washington County Historical Society - you can Google them if you haven't already contacted them.

Washington County did not come into existence until 1776 - before that it was Frederick Co. You might check the 1800 census to see where they are.

I am trying to find any additional information on John Lape b1756 . I have
possible information that he was a Hessen Soldier but also served in the
Revolutionary War. He did apply for pension.

John Lape b 1756 Washington co MD (I also have found a different possible
dob of 1750, and have also seen a possible birth place as Ursenborn, Hessen,
Germany ) dod 11/13/1817 place unsure at this point
married 08/24/1786
Margaret Conrad dob 1754

Info I have states they died in Fairfield Co OHIO but I cannot find any
record of this at all.

Old Reformed Church, Funkstown, Maryland: Margaret Conrad married John Lape
in 1780. They had 8 children, the birth of their daughter Anna Maria in
1783 is recorded at the same church. Both Nicholas and Margaret married into
the Longbreck family. These Lapes went to Fairfield County, Ohio in the
early 1800's.
( I recently requested information on this but was told it was not found)

Also son John Lape dob Mar 01, 1788 Washington Co MD dod 09/24/1861
Clearcreek Twp Fairfield Co OH
married Feb 13, 1816
Lydia Tillet dob 1792 Kentucky dod Nov 11, 1885 Clearcreek Twp Fairfield Co

Other children born in Washington co MD
Margaret 1781
Anna Maria (Mary) 1783 m Daniel Longbrake
Anna Elizabethan Jan 20, 1796 m John D Conrad
Henry Jan 12, 1794
Nicklas (Nicholas) Mar 04, 1783 m Anna Maria (Polly) Longbrake
Susannah 1787 m John Fredrich Walters

Any information would be very greatly appreciated or any info as the
direction to take in researching this family.
