Children of Lemuel and Nancy Daniel

Narrative

     On 7 November 1831 a Nancy Lawrence appeared before the Sumner County Court indicating that "she was delivered of a bastard child, which may become chargable to this County, and that Lemuel Lawrence near Jonesborough in the County aforesaid is the father of said child."4

     Additional related court records: "Lemuel Lawrence and Robert Lawrence one held afirmly bound to the Justices of the Court of pleas quarter session of said County in the penal sum of five hundred dollars the payment of which we bind ourselves our heirs executors sealed with our seals & dated this 9th day of November 1831. The condition of the above obligation as such that where as one Nancy Lawrence a single woman who made oath that the said Lemuel Lawrence did beget a child on her body which is now 4 months old, now it the said Lemuel Lawrence shall make his personal appearance at such Court of pleas & quarter session held in Sumner County at the Court house in the town of Gallatin on the 2d monday in November 1831 then the above obligation to be void otherwise to remain in full force & virtue."

     There were two Lemuel Lawrences in Sumner County records in this period. The other married Nancy Rogers in 1820. Our Lemuel was single at this time and is probably the one mentioned in the lawsuit. The Robert is probably his uncle or could be his older brother.

     After his marriage to Nancy, the heirs, his siblings, to the land purchased for the maintenance of his mother Elizabeth after the death of her husband Charles, sold their shares of that land to Lemuel as noted in the following deeds.

     On 2 January 1849, Robert Lawrence, Anderson Kirkpatrick and his wife Emmaliza Kirkpatrick (daughter of Amah and John Moss), Joseph C. Johnson and his wife Mary Jane Johnson (daughter of Amah and John Moss) sell their share of the land purchased in 1833 for the widow of Charles Lawrence and his children to Lemuel. That deed is as follows:5

     We Robert Lawrence Anderson Kirkpatrick and Emmaliza Kirkpatrick his wife Joseph C. Johnson and Mary Jane Johnson his wife have this day bargained and Sold and do hereby transfer and Convey to Lemuel Lawrence 7 his heirs forever in Consideration of Eighty dollars to us paid a tract of land in the State of Tennessee Sumner County and District No. __ Containing by estimation fifty acres be the same more or less and bounded as follows Beginning at the North West corner of a tract belonging to Jacob Howdyshalt dec'd.

     On the 1860 U. S. Census he appears in Gallatin Post Office, District 6, of Sumner County as a farmer with no real estate value listed and personal estate of $300. He is listed as Samuel Laneer but the names of his wife and children along with a Katherine Daniel who would be his mother-in-law appears to confirm that Samuel Laneer is Lemuel Lawrence.

     On the 1870 U. S. Census he again appears in Gallatin Post Office, District 5, of Sumner County as a farmer with no real estate value and personal estate of $200.

     It would appear that after selling the land in 1856, Lemuel moved to the Gallatin area and may have rented land to farm.

     By the 1880 U. S. Census, Lemuel and his wife were living with his eldest son, John William in the 8th District of Davidson County. The surname is spelled Laurens on that census.

     Lemuel died 8 March 1881, probably in Nashville, Davidson County. His wife Nancy died 7 August 1883, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where she probably was staying with her son Robert. I have been unable to find the burial of either.
