William L Lawrence.
I remember Great-Grandma Lawrence. She died in 1980 when I was in Junior High School. This photo shows her as I remember her. She is sitting in her rocking chair in her home. Not in the picture but in the middle of the room was a wood burning stove that provided both heat for the home and a cooking surface for her. The home did have running water and there was an outhouse at the back of the home.
Great Grandma was a quilter and Mom has one of her quilts that she got after Great Grandma’s death in 1980.
