My late mother believed that my G Great Grandfather, Lawson Walter Henry  was connected to the Lawsons and Whites of North Carolina. I have been looking for a marriage between a Henry and Lawson and or White since the Lawsons and White were definely connected with each other. (Rowan County and Iredell County) I found a Hugh Lawson Henry in my family which does prove there was marriage in these two families.. My Lawson Walter Henry was born in 1808 in North Carolina and married my G Greay Grandmother Susan Martin in Roane county, Tennessee. He may have been married before to a Mary Loretz in about 1835. He was 22 years older than Susan Martin when they married. He was 42 and she was 20. Any help would be very much appreciated. I did find a James Henry born in 1807 in Tennessee who had children with many of the same names as did Lawson Henry. (James Henry even had a son named Lawson Henry)

Thank You for your answer. No, the Mary Loretz record is not what I was looking for. I already have this record and Lawson Henry's marriage to Mary L.is not part of my linegae. Mine is his with Susan Martin. I just think Mary L. may have been his first wife and maybe she died. I was lookng for a record of where a Henry man married a Lawson or White women which could be my Lawson Walter Henry's parents. I believe that this is what happened.There are many James,John,and Edwards in my family line. Perhaps his father was a William or Walter Henry that married into the N. Carolina Lawsons or Whites.  I can't find this info with Ancestry.com. I was hoping someone might have a bible record or other info that could help me. Lawson and susan married and lived in Kingston, Tennessee.  I know I can have the DNA testing done thru Ancestry but I fear this info could get into the wrong hands some day.
