Amanda Lathrop

Amanda Lathrop was born in 1831 in Indiana, and married Daniel E. Citizen in 1850 in Perry County Indiana. She and Daniel lived briefly in the home of her parents, Samuel Lathrop and his wife Margaret; Samuel was a brick mason born in New Hampshire. Samuel married Margaret Jackson in 1820 in Leavenworth, Indiana.


I'm presuming this is the Samuel Lathrop that appears in Rev. E. B. Huntington's A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family, published in 1884. Samuel's father was Captain Samuel Lathrop, who was born in 1756 in Norwich, Connecticut and married Lois Huntington. Captain Lathrop volunteered in 1774 in the cause of the American colonies against the English, and was injured in the battle of Bunker Hill. Samuel and Lois lived in Lebanon, New Hampshire.


Captain Samuel's parents were Elisha and Hannah Hough, who were married in 1743. Elisha's parrents were Samuel, born in Norwich in 1692, and Elizabeth Waterman. Samuel's father was Israel, born in 1659, who married Rebecca Bliss.


Isreal was the son of Samuel Lathrop, who was born in England, and arrived in Scituate, Massachusetts in 1634 on the ship Griffin with his father, the Reverend John Lathop. Samuel was married by his father in 1644 in Barnstable to Elizabeth Scudder. His sister Jane was married to Samuel Fuller by Miles Standish.


Rev. John Lathrop was the pastor of the First Church in Scituate until 1639, when he moved further south to Barnstable, Massachusetts. He is considered the founder of Barnstable.


In England, Rev. John was the second pastor of the Independent (Congregational) Church in London. King Charles I was in a conflict with Parliament, which was supported by Puritans, Presbyterians, and Independents. These religious dissenters were persecuted and imprisoned; Rev John was in jail from 1632 to 1634, during which his wife, Hannah House, died. On his release he left for North America, with his son Samuel.
