    • "Albertus Larrowe (LaRue) was probably of Huguenot descent. He was born in New Jersey within sound of the guns of the battle of Trenton. In 1795 he started on foot for Canada, but when he arrived in Bath, NY, he was too lame to go farther. He subseqently purchased land in the area of Wheeler, NY. He raised a family of distinction, some of whom lived in nearby Cohocton and Hammondsport. In spite of increasing farm activities, he found time to serve as supervisor of the town of Wheeler and as Master of the Masonic Lodge in Cohocton.
      Descendants spell the name both ways LaRue and Larrowe."

      Note:General George Washington’s army crossed the icy Delaware on Christmas Day 1776 and, over the course of the next 10 days, won two crucial battles of the American Revolution. In the Battle of Trenton (December 26), Washington defeated a formidable garrison of Hessian mercenaries before withdrawing. A week later he returned to Trenton to lure British forces south, then executed a daring night march to capture Princeton on January 3. The victories reasserted American control of much of New Jersey and greatly improved the morale and unity of the colonial army and militias.
