In Reply to: Lawrence Lawler, Ireland to TN, born abt. 1780 by William Lollar of 509

I found a news article concerning an Isaac Lawlor.

An Isaac Lawlor showed up in the 1870 census for Portland, Multnomah county, Oregon. He was 23 and worked as a Coachman for the S.G. Reed family. He was born in Ireland.

In the 1880 census, he shows up in two different census records, but it is the same person. His last name is indexed as Lawler.

In the second census, it shows him in the household of his father-in-law John H. Egan and wife Maria. It was enumerated on June 25, 1880 in Portland, Oregon.

ISAAC LAWLOR IS DEAD
Pioneer Business Man of Portland Passes Away

Isaac Lawlor, a pioneer of Portland who came here in 1867, died at his home, 34 North Fifteenth street, early this morning, of dropsy of the heart. He had been sick for about three months.

Mr. Lawlor had been in business here for 30 years. He leaves four children, beside his widow: Emmett, Gerald, Kathleen and Nora. Arrangements for the funeral have not yet been made.

I am not related. I just happen to come across the article and thought I would pass it on.
