believed, was born in New Jersey, and she in Ohio, the Laurence ancestors, so far as known, being natives of New Jersey.

In July, 1881, he purchased the Harveysburg Mills, which at this writing he is about to take possession of. Mr. Laurence commenced in life without capital, and by his own industry and good management has accumulated a good competency. He is a man possessed of energy, and his integrity is undoubted; he is prompt and exact in all his dealings and one of the best citizens in the community where he has lived. He was first married to Mary Wood, by whom he had one child (deceased). His second marriage was on Oct. 14, 1853; by this union they have had nine children, eight now survive—Herbert A., Elmer G., Cora, Theodore, Daisie, Guilford, Mabel and Perry. Our subject remained with his father till his majority, brought up to the tanning business. In the spring of 1878, he located upon the farm where he now lives and has since resided. Mr. Laurence was married April 14, 1878, to Olive A., daughter of John and Margaret Ellis, whose history and that of their ancestors is given in sketches of James W. Ellis and Israel D. Compton (deceased) in this work. Mr. Laurence and wife have one child, Jessie T., born July 14, 1879.
