Major Life Events

Some researchers indicate that the marriage took place in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania.1,3 James died on 5 March 1802 at Mercer Co., Kentucky, at age 81.1,4

Children of James and Elizabeth:

Narrative

     The following information on the family of James Lawrence Sr. and Elizabeth is from the email sent to Bettye Heinrich by William Lawrence.

     James and Elizabeth were in Lincoln and Mercer Counties, Kentucky at an early date having moved from Augusta/Botetourt Counties, Virginia, before the early 1780s. There are indications that the Lawrences lived in Peach Bottom in Drummore Township of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, prior to moving to Augusta/Botetourt Counties in the late 1750s.

     They lived on the fountier where native Indians repeatedly objected with violence to the encroachments of the settlers. The Virginia government repeatedly signed treaties agreeing that the land west of the Applachians was Indian territory but settlers to some extent were protected by the militia. The Lawrence's owned land in Virginia at the mouth of Craig's Creek on the north side of the James River (about 1/4 mile north of Eagle Rock) and grew hemp on their land.

     James and Elizabeth had 12 children. All of them with the exception of James Jr. who died in 1773 in Botetourt County, Virginia, came to Kentucky and owned thousands of acres of land in Jefferson, Lincoln, Fayette, Mercer, Nelson, and various other counties. In October 1780, four of James' sons were granted 1500 acres each along the Rolling Fork of the Salt River in what is now Nelson County.

     James served in the Revolutionary War as a private in Captain John Winston's Company of the 14th Regiment of Foot commanded by Colonel William Davies. He was drafted at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, for a term of one year on 17 February 1778. Sons Samuel Jr., Isaac, Solomon, and Joseph also served in one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War in the West. They enlisted 22 October 1782, in the Lincoln Militia under Captain Samuel Kirkman in the expedition commanded by General George Rogers Clark against the Shawnee Indians and were discharged 23 November 1782.

     James Sr. was a silversmith but the location of his business is unknown. He made his will 13 August 1801, in Mercer County, Kentucky, and died 5 March 1802 in Danville, Kentucky. Elizabeth his wife evidently died between 1791 and 13 August 1801 as she is not mentioned in his will.

     James made a will on 13 August 1801 at Mercer Co., Kentucky.5
