Surnames: Lawrence and Petros
I was just trying to find some mention of my ancestors in Caroline Co. Even though your entries are several years old I was astounded to see you were trying to tie up our "loose ends", as I am now. Some of your names are very familiar.

At the risk of sending you information you already have here goes. Archibald Lawrence was born in England in 1782. He had a brother and both cane to the U.S. together. According to two geneologists Archibald married a girl named Petross and they had a baby boy who was born in Caroline County. This child's name was William Pleasant Lawrence. At some time after this event the family moved to Rutherford Co. TN. They acquired land and listed themselves as "farmers". Archibald's brother, we believe, eventually cane to Tennessee also. Archibald and William were my grandfathers respectively. Archibald and William are buried in the family cemetary.

We have been here ever since. There are still three Lawrence families still living in Rutherford Co.
