Classification: Query
Surnames: Lawrence
Joanna Petross Lawrence (Johanna):
Joanna Married Joseph Lawrence about 1813 in Virgenia.
They moved to Rutherford Co. TN about 1835.
They owned property and slaves.
Joseph died about 1840.
Joanna died about 1855.
I have a copy of a letter written by her back to Virginia about her father's slaves.
Their farm had to be sold off at 25cents to the dollar.
Joanna had property she controlled by herself.
She eventrally moved in with one of her children.

This is all I have on them. I find it odd that I have not been able to find a record of any communication between the brothers or their respective families. Was there a reason for this?
I have a record of one of Joanna's sons moving to Graves Co KY with Samuel one of Archilald's sons.
Today there is no communication between the respective. I hope I can thange this.
Jim Lawrence, Archibald's grand son
