Although the surname of Lom died out by 1685, it is probable that Måns Svensson Lorn had more descendants than any other settler of New Sweden. He had nine children, fifty or more grandchildren and at least 250 great-grandchildren. When Andreas Rudman took his census of the Wicaco congregation in 1697, thirty percent (165) of them were Lom's descendants.
Nothing is yet known about Lom's personal history prior to 1641. As he came to America with the Stille brothers (Olof and Axel) it is probable that he was also from Roslagen. That was the reported birthplace of his eldest daughter. The name of his wife is not found in any surviving record. Based on Swedish naming patterns, her name was probably Anna Petersdotter and it seems likely that she was the sister of Olof and Axel Stille, sons of Peter Stille of Roslagen.
Måns Svensson (the son of Sven) used the surname of Lom, pronounced "Loom" in Swedish and sometimes spelled that way. It means "loon" or "diver" and is typical of the kind of name assigned to a Swedish seaman.
Lom's name first appeared in New Sweden records on the passenger list of the Charitas, 3 May 1641, on the eve of that ship's departure from Stockholm on the first leg of its voyage to America. Listed right above the family of Olof Stille and the bachelor Axel Stifle was "Måns Svensson Lom, a tailor and formerly a lieutenant, who intends to begin agriculture in New Sweden. He has received 5 Riksdaler but otherwise no salary; he goes with his wife, two almost grown-up daughters and a little son."
In New Sweden, he became one of the first settlers of present Delaware County, where he settled with the Stille brothers on a tract called "Techoherassi" by the Indians. This was at present Eddystone, located on the Delaware River between Olof Stille's Creek (now Ridley Creek) and Crum Creek.
On 6 October 1646, during the war of words between Governor Johan Printz and the Dutch, Olof Stille and Måns Svensson Lom delivered one of the Governor's ultimatums to Andries Hudde, the Dutch commander at Fort Nassau. The account book of Hendrick Huygen, New Sweden's commissary, dated I March 1648, showed that Måns Svensson owed the New Sweden Company 274.17 guilders for his purchases from the company store.
Måns Svensson Lom probably died in 1653. On 27 July 1653, his two sons-in-law Peter Larsson Cock and John Wheeler and Olof and Axel Stille were among the 22 freemen submitting a petition of grievances to Governor Printz. Lom's name was conspicuous in its absence. On 9 June 1654, after the arrival of Governor Johan Risinor "Måns Lom's widow" was listed among the "old freemen" pledging allegiance to the new governor.
Arriving on the Eagle with Governor Rising, was Lars Andersson Collinus, a "münster" (minister's) scribe, who soon married Måns Lom's widow. In 1664, Olof Stille's family and the Lom family (with its new father-in-law) moved to Moyamensing on the Delaware River in present South Philadelphia. "Lasse" Andersson later became a justice on the Upland Court. After the creation of Pennsylvania, Lasse Andersson was "naturalized" by William Penn and joined other "antient Sweeds" in signing a deposition (for use against Lord Baltimore) establishing that the Swedes were the first permanent settlers in Delaware, which Baltimore claimed belonged to Maryland. The will of Lars Andersson Collinus, dated 17 July 1689, left his Moyamensing plantation to Michael Nilsson Laican and Andrew Wheeler, who were, respectively, a son-in-law and grandson of Måns Lom.
It is unknown when Lom's wife died. However, she was the mother of nine children:
1. Margaret Lom, born in 1626 in Roslagen, was buried by pastor Andreas Sandel 13 Feb. 1703 at the age of 76. She married Peter Larsson Cock and lived at Peter Cock's (later Province) Island. They had 13 children:

2. Catharine Lom, born in Roslagen c. 1628, married John Wheeler, an Englishman, who lived in the New Sweden colony. After the 1653 protest to Printz, they moved to Swanwyck, near the Dutch Fort Casimir (New Castle), and by 1658 had moved to the Sassafras River in Cecil County, Maryland. Catharine died before 1674 when John Wheeler's second wife Mary renounced any interest in his property. Catharine had four known children:
Samuel Wheeler, born c. 1650, who remained in Cecil County on his father's "Roundstone" plantation; never married.
John Wheeler, born c. 1654, sold his father's 'Wheelers Point' plantation in Cecil County to his brother-in-law Nicholas Allum in 1677, intending to move to land acquired by his "grandfather" Lars Andersson in Blockley Township, Philadelphia County. However, he returned to Cecil County to live at "Roundstone," married Elizabeth and died in 1698, survived by 3 daughters.
Anna Wheeler, born c. 1656, married Nicholas Allum; I daughter.

3. Peter Månsson, born in Roslagen c. 1638, never used his father's surname. He married a daughter (name unknown) of Sven Gunnarsson and in 1673 was shown as a one-third owner of the Bought on the Delaware in Brandywine Hundred, New Castle County. He surrendered this interest to Marcus Laurens and moved to Cecil County, where he died in 1677, survived by one child:
Anders Petersson. Sven Svensson, Peter Månsson's brother-in-law, attempted, without success, to be his guardian. Anders appears to have died in his minority in Cecil County, without issue.
4. Anna Lorn, born at sea in 1641, married Giösta Danielsson, who arrived, in New Sweden in 1654 as a tailor and soldier. They lived at Upland (Chester), where Danielsson died intestate in 1681, survived by three daughters:

M, #4004, b. circa 1670
Birth*circa 1670 Mathew Lowry Sr. was born circa 1670 at Isle of Wight County, VA.1 
Note*1694 He Its possible that Mathew either had a brother or a son named James Lowry as a person with that name was named on June 1 1694 to take as an apprentice John Harris the orphan of Richard Harris deceased. Richard's wife Ann was still alive. They were the parents of Love Harris who married John Bass. in 1694.2 
LANDCONTRA*6 April 1700  On 6 April 1700 In a deed Mathew Lowry is described as occupying land adjoining Pharoah Cobb. From this date I am supposing that Matthew Lowry had to be at least 25 years old to be residing on land so that would put his birthdate at about 1675 or so which is much too early for this to be Joanna's husband and so this must be her father-in law to be. Since son Matthew who later marries Joanna seemed to be a contemporary of Joanna's first husband I would place his birth about 1690 (about same as Joanna's) Therefore his father likely born 1670.3

Birth*1842 Josephine Luhr was born in 1842. 
 She was the daughter of Joseph Luhr and Barbara Loesch
MARRIAGE*10 May 1864  Marriage record from St. Mary's Church states: " William James Blakely, son of James Blakely and Susan Smyth from Pittsburg, and Josephine Luhr, daughter of Joseph Luhr and Barbara Loesch from Forshheim, Baden (Germany), married in St. Mary's Church on May 10, 1864. Witnesses were Laurie Blakely, James B. Dodge, Susan Blakely, and Mary English. Minister was Father Ferdinand B. Wolf, of the Order of St. Benedict."
Josephine died in March of the following year in childbirth. William remarried and apparently named his first daughter Josephine after his first wife. (Probably first and second wives were friends or possibly could have been sisters). Laura Glass does not think they were sisters as Wimmer mentions going to the "Gensheimer store" while in Erie in 1871. She thinks that he met Mary in Erie since that is where he set up his practice, probably leaving St. Marys shortly after the death of his wife Josephine. 
Death*13 March 1865 She died on 13 March 1865 at St. Mary's, Elk County, PA, History of Westmoreland Co., PA states "died 3-13-1865 Josephine Blakely widow of Dr. James age 23." also listed in Fischer "Marriage and Death Notices from Weekly Newspapers, Westmoreland Co., Oa 1818-1865.
This is strange because James married #2 time to Mary G.
The following death notices were taken from The Brookville Herald, published in Brookville, Pa.
Mar. 12, 1865…at St. Mary’s, Elk County, John Becan Ryan Blakely, infant son of Dr. W. James and Josephine Blakely.

  1. [S494] Laura Glass, "Laura Woodrough Glass correspondence", This is taken from information assembled by LWG. Individual sources will be mentioned in each item.

    My source for the THOMAS SHORE information was Marshall SHORE, who has done
    extensive research on the SHORE ancestors; also, received information from
    Tommy Wiggins, a descendant, on Jane Shore Morin and William STAMPS, and Sue Moore, another descendant of Jane Shore & James MORIN.
    But Marshall Shore was the main source of info.
