Lawlor Facts

Lawlor Page

I found this entry in a guestbook on the Lawlor/Lalor site online. I have since contacted the writer, Thomas Richards, and we have shared more Lawlor facts.

Dear Jeff,
Just stumbled on to your homepage! My grandmother (my father's mother) was a Lawlor. I always remember her story about her grandfather Lawlor. According to her, he came from Ireland and, after a time and marriage, he came to the Houghton-Hancock region of northern Michigan (the upper pennisula) and settled there. Her story concerned his first night ashore in America. She told that he spent his first night in America in jail. It seems someone called him a "son-of-a-bitch." And according to her, you didn't call an Irishman a "son-of-a-bitch" without impunity. He was arrested for brawling. I haven't read all of your pages and it will take me a little time to do so.

I don't know the Lawlor lineage. My grandmother was Mae Lawlor. I believe her father's name was John. I also seem to remember a brother she referred to as Willie.

I'm drawing this from quite a long time ago. Mae was born January 28, 1888 and died April 27, 1965. I give you this info in the event that someone recognizes something and might contact me with more family history. Finding your page may send me on a genealogical search into the Lawlor name.

Thank you for reading my ramblings, but I thought you might enjoy the "jail" story. It was my grandmother's favorite.


Sincerely,
Thomas M. Richards
