LAWSON (LAW SOME of the time) FRANKLIN EARLES PART 3 – Price & Assoc. Inc.

Quote

And now we pick up again with the law sliding antics of Lawson. Shortly before his death in 1931, Lawson applied for a confederacy pension in Oklahoma for the Civil War military service. But, remember, Lawson was born in 1862 so he would have had to been a gun toting toddler in order to have participated in this war.

Lawson applied for this pension under the name of Richard N. Earls and was eventually approved. Richard N. Earls, the one being impersonated, was actually Lawson’s half cousin and he DID participate in the Civil War and also received a pension in Texas.

Life With Herman – The Carpenter – Price & Associates Genealogists

Life With Herman – The Carpenter - Price & Associates GenealogistsHerman and Ray in front of the house they built.

“Boys, we are going to build a house, don’t make any plans. I have drawn the floor plan’ I am going to order the lumber.”

“O.K. kids, today we start. Ray, hand me that hammer; Donnie, hand me the saw; Iris, bring the nails; Ma, bring the shovel. We are going to make the forms for the foundation.”
So we build a house. “Hand me this, bring me that, fetch that over here, don’t touch that, don’t put that nail in there.”

The house is finished. We stand back and look at our super boss man. He says, “That is a dam good looking house, but if I ever start to build another, I hope someone shoots me.” We all agree (that it is the best looking house, that is).

UK: British County-Wide Marriage Indexes

Try our NEW Expert Links page for England

Find out if your county is indexed covering the time period you need!

Historically, English men often married outside their parishes of residence. Marriages generally took place in the bride’s place of residence. Because there are over 11,000 Church of England parishes in England alone, it is often difficult to track down these records. To help alleviate this problem, genealogists and family history societies have created county-wide marriage indexes.

Percival Boyd, an avid genealogist in the early twentieth-century, is credited with devising this method to solve English family history conundrums. He made a serious dent in making a nation-wide index for England through what is known as Boyd’s Marriage Index. Next, the International Genealogical Index, and it’s holding-tank, the British Vital Records Index (CD-ROM), furthered these efforts. While each of these databases are valuable, they are incomplete when parish coverage is analyzed county-by-county, making them inferior to the indexes discussed in this article.
