- JSH notes: The origins of the Larzelere family in America are documented on p.6 in "The Biographical Annals of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania" The article is about Blanch's third cousin, Nicholas H. Larzelere (1851-1925), but it includes their mutual ancestry which traces back to Nicholas Larzelere (1718-1799) and his wife Elizabeth Bessonett. It begins as follows:
"The revocation of the famous Edict of Nantes, signed by Henry IV, in 1598, which gave religious freedom to all parties, was an act which lost to France many of her best and most desirable citizens, a large number of families finally finding refuge in America. Among those who fied from the persecutions following the ill-advised action of Louis XIV were Nicholas and John Larzelere, who settled on Long Island. Nicholas removed ultimately to Staten Island, where he married and reared a family which consisted of two sons, Nicholas and John, and two daughters. Of the
sons, Nicholas, in 1741, removed with his family to Bucks county, Pennsylvania, and settled in Lower Makefield township. He died at the age of eighty-four, having reared a family of eight
children, and was buried in the Episcopal graveyard at Bristol....." (please refer to the full text of the article p. 6-8.)
Mr. Osman notes: At time of death Blanche was residing at 165 Harvey Street, Germantown, PA
Her will was dated May 11, 1917. Her husband, Henry Howell, was named executor. A part of her will reads as follows: I would like, if my husband so desires that my home be kept intact, and all contents to remain as they are during his lifetime. At his death, should my sister Annie, or my brother Clifford be living I desire that they should have and control the family silver, tea set etc., cut glass and old mahogany hall clock. (Will No. 2991 of year 1923).
Death notice appeared in the Public Ledger. Kirk and Nice furnished information regarding the place of burial--West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Lot 285 in the Edgewood section. It is a single grave. [13, 14]
