To answer your question, I don't really know where Lawrence (Laurence, Lawrance) came from - family oral history. Interesting that you found son John's death certificate with his parent's names, Lawrance & Honora. I've spent the day reading through the link you sent - I've looked for John O'Connell born 13 Dec 1823 (thinking that the baptism would be in Dec 1823 or Jan/Feb 1824 at the latest) - no luck. :-( I looked for the marriage of Lawrence O'Connell to Honora Prendeville, no luck their either. Although there are tons of Prendevilles/Prendivilles getting married & baptised at the RC Church in Castleisland, none of them fit. Just because John O'Connell left Castleisland abt 1847 doesn't mean he was from Castleisland. Since you asked how I got Lawrence as John's father, do you know something I can't find/don't know?
