About John Rambo

123. JOHN RAMBO married ANNE LANE, the daughter of Samuel Lane. It is probable that Samuel Lane was married twice and that son Edward and daughters Ann, Hannah and Christian were children of the first marriage. Samuel's will named his wife as Rebecca (Hooper) Lane, who lived from 1719-1808, and his four daughters Sarah, Elizabeth, Rebecca and Mary, in addition to the other four children. Even if Rebecca married in her teens, it is improbable that she was the mother of Ann (Lane) Rambo who married and had six children before she died in 1754. The fathers, Peter Rambo and Samuel Lane, were wardens and vestrymen in St. James (Episcopal) Church in Perkiomen in 1737-38. Anne died 7 May 1754 and is buried in the St. James Episcopal Churchyard in Perkiomen. John Rambo's will was dated 24 Mar 1758 and was proved three weeks later on 12 Apr 1758. He and his brother William [#125] made their wills and died about the same time. In his will, John named 6 children. However, only four were listed in their Grandfather Samuel Lane's will written in 1771.
