Note: William L. Lawrence served in the Confederate army from 1861 til 1865. He served in Company E, Twelfth Tennessee Infantry until the middle of the Battle of Corinth. When Gen. Sydney Johnston was killed the Army of Tennessee regiments were re-roganized. He was then transferred to 'Company L, Third Kentucky Infantry. He was captured Sept. 25, 1864 near Athens, AL. and was transferred to Louisville Military Prison, in KY. He was to be transferred to the prison in Camp Chase, Ohio, but escaped enroute. After he escaped he rejoined his unit. He fought until the end of the War, going on the last raid made by Gen. Bedford Forrest on Selma. Obituary (copy of which is in the family Bible which is in the possession of Henry Lawrence) W.L. Lawrence Dead Passes away at his home on North Pruett Street - Death due to bowel trouble. W.L. Lawrence, a well known resident of North Pruett Street, aged fifty- five years, died at the family home just before noon today, after an illness since last Sunday. Death was due to obstruction of the bowels. The deceased was a very clever old gentleman and respected by all who knew him. He was an active member of the Fraternal Home and was engaged at times instituting lodges of that order at various places, and carried a policy of $1,000 in that organization. He was also a member of the local Ancient Order of United Workmen, carrying with that order a policy of $2,000, making a total of $3,000 insurance he had on his life. A family of a wife, four sons and one daughter survive him, with whom their large number of friends deeply sympathize. The funeral and burial arrangements have not been definitely decided upon but will probably be conducted from the famiy home Sunday afternoon, under the auspices of the two orders with which the deceased was identified
