John E. Lansing
By the end of 1766, he had married Maria Staats. By 1787, five children had been christened in Albany.
As a number of John Lansings lived in and around Albany during his lifetime, at this time we must integrate information on "John E. Lansing" only. In 1776, John E. Lansing was the adjutant for the Fourth Regiment of Albany County Militia. Afterwards, he received a land bounty right in conjunction with the Fourth Regiment.
Perhaps he was the "John E. Lansing" who settled in Schodack and petitioned for the formation of a Reformed church there during the latter part of the eighteenth century. Perhaps, he was a widower and had a second marriage to a widow about his age in 1807. Perhaps he filed a will in Rensselaer County and died there in 1821.
We seek more definitive and connecting information on the later life of John E. Lansing.
