|Laurence was the oldest of Arthur and Catherine's children. he was 7 years old.
Laurence had many different jobs, he was a dragman, then worked with a horse and wagon delivering beer, sometime later he owned a warehous, as did his brother Richard. Laurence seemed to lead a quiet life.
this branch of the family ended with Frank and Annie, Laurence and Anna's children. They both married late in life. Frank married Katie Murphy and Annie married David Joseph Daly. they lived next door to each other, on the same street where they grew up. Neither ever had any children.Frank,and his father Laurence did not continue in the family wholesale grocery business after the war, more than likely because goods were difficult to get, instead they worked as carpenters. The reconstruction required quite alot of new housing. Times were very hard during this period.

Butler's occupation of the city was not a too terrible thing, citizens for the most part felt rather safe, got on with their lives, as long as you weren't too Confederate.
There were political riots to be lived through, and upheavel and loss and unfairness after the war that was very difficult.
