    Notes 
    • Lived on a farm southeast of Helfer.  Clarence E. Cramer writes that his baptismal sponsors were Johann Lorentz and Anna Maria (Emigh) Cramer

      FindAGrave notes that his headstone may be the one between his wife's stone and the stone of his father but his stone is almost unreadable. If it isn't that stone his stone may have been destroyed over time but he is buried in this cemetery. Chuck Winter shows his date of death as 30 October 1840.

      Edith Beard Cannon, in "Genealogical Reports for The Historical Society of York County, Vol. XXIX, pp. 1-72, Evidence of the Cramer Families of York before the year 1850 REVISED"  published 1943, writes that an Administation Bond (2N, 174) was posted on November 7, 1840 for the Estate of Laurence Cramer of Codorus Township, Henry Cramer Administrator. This book is lost.  January 3, 1843, Henry Cramer, administrator reported that in pursuance of a Court order dated Jan. 5, 1841, the sale of the following was conducted: No. 1, containing 50 acres sold to Christian MECKLEY for $311.41 1/2; No. 2, containing 19 acres, to John ROHRBACH for $189.43 3/4; No. 3, containing 80 acres, the homestead part, to Catherine Lehman for $298.12 1/2; No. 4, containing 9 acres, to Joseph GRAYBILL for $85.81 (Orphans Court Dockets, U. 145).
