Thanks! My info is that James M. Lawrence was married once to Caroline Forgeson (Ferguson). Spelled Caroline on her tombstone. Does anyone know for sure who her mother was? I've seen Frances Thompson and Sarah Anderson.

I am descended from Caroline Ferguson Lawrence thru her daughter Martha Jane Lawrence b. 10-13-1845 Paulding County d.08-10-1925 in Gwinnett County, GA. She is buried at Mt. Carmel 1st UMC Cemetery, Norcross, GA. I believe her grave may be unmarked. Her mother's sister, Rebecca Forgeson Arnold is also buried there and I wonder if Martha could be buried in her plot. I got this info from Martha's death certificate. I have much more info on Martha's descendants if anyone is interested. Still looking for info on husband Marshall T. "Mack" Ferguson (her 1st cousin. Family lore is that they divorced bef. 1900 and that he died in Pilot Point, TX. Can anyone help????
