bullet  General Notes:

In an email, Nov 11, 2004 from Desmond Kendrick, Archivist, Henry County, Virginia:
"Samuel Lawrence was the son of Henry Lawrence and his wife, Gilley Allen. Oddly enough, Henry's home is still standing, partially. It is a short distance from Samuel's homesite. Henry and Gilley are buried above their home in a pasture.
They have no tombstones. However, Samuel and Rebecca do have tombstones and are buried at their homesite. ...
I am not related to Samuel and Rebecca Lawrence, but feel a lot of respect for them. I see them as great grandparents that I never knew. One other note ... Samuel Lawrence was a deputy sheriff at one time. I have the key to the holding cell that he had at his home at Mountain Valley!"
