GGGGG Grandpa Schlemp--in Capt. Love's Company in the Revolution

Never know what you are going to find on the Internet. This man is said to have been born on shipboard, on the way to the colonies. Several of his fellows in Capt. William Love's company lived long enough to apply for the 1832 pension.

One of his descendants was in Calvin Coolidge's cabinet so that he shows up in a picture with one of my favorite writers, the visiting John Buchan.
