John C. Lawrence
This veteran of many battles in life's path, has so conducted himself that he has won the respect and esteem of all who have known him during the years of his life. He is also a veteran of the Civil War. John C. Lawrence was born in Fleming county, Kentucky, on October 6, 1820, the son of Isaac and Mary (Collins) Lawrence, also natives of Kentucky. The father fought in the War of 1812 and died in 1850. His father, Isaac Lawrence, the paternal grandfather of our subject, with two brothers, William and Benjamin, fought in the War of 1812. This worthy patriot lived to be one hundred and ten years of age. He was of Scotch ancestry. The mother's father, John Collins, and two of her brothers fought in the War of 1812. Her brothers were Captains Elisha and Robert Collins. She lived to be ninety-seven years of age. John Collins went with his parents to North Bend, Ohio, when a child, where his father died, after which he returned to Kentucky with his mother. Then he went to Rush county, Indiana, and there, on August 20, 1846 married Miss Deborah, daughter of James and Deborah Sloan. In 1854 he moved to Monroe county, Iowa. He had volunteered to fight in the Mexican War, but failed to get to the front on account of the company not being raised. On August l0, 1862, Mr. Lawrence enlisted in Company D, Thirty-Fourth Iowa Infantry, and participated in the battles of Vicksburg, Arkansas Post, besides many others, and numerous skirmishes. On many occasions, bullets passed through his hat and clothes, but he was never wounded, although he saw much blood shed and many comrades were killed on the right hand and on the left. He was later taken sick and after languishing some time in the hospital at Chicago, he was finally discharged, on account of disability. He has received a twelve dollar pension for fifteen years and has been a member of the G. A. R. for a long time. A good portion of Mr. Lawrence's life was spent in Monroe and Montgomery counties Iowa, while he also lived five years at Parsons, Kansas. His wife died in Montgomery county, Iowa, March 6, 1891, in her sixty-fifth year. She was a member of the Missionary Baptist church, as is also our subject. To them were born eight children: William, deceased; Mrs. Mary Deem, of Oklahoma; James M., of Parsons, Kansas; Mrs. Elnore Minard, of Cload county, Kansas; John W., of Montgomery county, Iowa; Mrs. Clarissa Hollenbeck, of Oklahoma; and Oscar N., who married Sarah Harbaugh, and has a homestead four miles south of Chesaw; and Frederick L., of Spokane. Oscar N. came to the reservation in March, 1903, and located his present homestead, while our subject came with that young man's wife and children, to the valley later. Mr. Lawrence located a homestead adjoining that of his son, which is mostly good land. It is pleasant to know that Mr. Lawrence is so situated financially that he is enabled to live retired during the remainder of his life. He has twenty-eight grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.
