They moved from Georgia to Clear Creek, Hot Springs, Arkansas. They are there in the 1850 census with their four children: Elvira Lawrence [she married Frank M. Reneau], John Wesley Lawrence [he married Mary Wilson Hill, nee Kuykendall], William Leonard Lawrence [he married Zelda Drury, and Rosa J. Allen], and James Hamilton Lawrence [he married Martha Ann Carr].

They moved to Bastrop Co., [Lee Co.] Texas, and lived in Williamson Co., Texas, in 1880. John A. Lawrence was a County Commissioner of Bastrop Co., Texas in 1858. He and his sons were Freemasons.
