The Lawlor Family


Catherine Lawlor, c. 1910

My grandfather on my mother's side was Thomas F. Lang. His mother was Catherine Lawlor from County Kerry, Ireland. Catherine came to America with her family sometime in the 1860's. She came with her father, John Lawlor, mother Hanora Reardon Lawlor, brother John and sister Mary.

I recently found that there was another sister named Honora, and there is Jeremy listed with them in the census, but I have no more information on her. According to Catherine's obituary, the family settled in Detroit, Michigan, for a while, then moved to the upper peninsula.


John Lawlor Kate Lawlor Mary Lawlor

It's difficult to tell which of these is Kate, but the middle one looks like she's wearing a ring on her left hand, so I think it's Kate. This picture below of an older John shows he looked quite a bit like the younger photo. The mustache never changed.


I just found this in a photo album with captions provided
by my mother. Here she wrote, "John Lawlor with Jim and Hugh"
1917

Census Pages
I found Kate, married to James in the 1870 Houghton, Michigan census. I know that the Patrick Lawlor I found in upper Michigan censuses is related, because I remember my mother talking about him, but I haven't made the correct connection, yet.
