We must be closely related because Earl Lawrence was also my grandfather. My mother was his daughter Mary Ann. Earl was born April 1, 1906 in Spring Valley, WI and died in
May of 1947 of a major heart attack and hepitis. His wife name is Lydia Fendel who was born in Russia on August 14, 1911 and pasted on June of 1985. Lydia's parents were William Fendel and Elizabeth Kildow. Earl's were Frank Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Chase. I don't know too much about Ira just yet.
