  2. [S348] Lawrence Family of Reynoldsburg Illinois, Robert D. Garrett, compiler, online www.heritech.com/soil/genealogy/lawrence/lawrence.htm, According to researcher Steve Lawrence, Henry and Elizabeth were probably Quakers. He based this opinion on the fact that most of their documented associations were with other Quakers.
  3. [S348] Lawrence Family of Reynoldsburg Illinois, online www.heritech.com, HENRY1 LAWRENCE was born Abt. 1725, and died July 31, 1767 in Frederickville, Louisa Co., VA. He married ELIZABETH STANDLEY 1748 in VA. She was born Abt. 1727 in Prince Georges Co., VA, and died Abt. 1800 in Louisa Co., VA.
    Notes for HENRY LAWRENCE: Henry's ancestry has not yet been determined. It was thought at one time that he was the son of Michael Lawrence, grandson of Robert Lawrence of Nansemond County, an early settler to Virginia from England. Robert Garrett's DNA test analyzed in 2004, when compared with known descendants of Robert Lawrence, has shown that, although there might be a distant relationship to this branch of Lawrence's, any common ancestry with this branch would have been many centuries earlier than Robert of Nansemond County.
  4. [S348] Lawrence Family of Reynoldsburg Illinois, online www.heritech.com, After the death of her husband Henry Lawrence in 1768, Elizabeth remarried on July 18 1775 to David Powers. This was likely a marriage of necessity since there were still four children to raise. Elizabeth was still living in 1797, when the land they were living on was sold.
