Looking for the parents of Lawrence Kerr (1836-1896) who immigrated to the USA around 1840 and died in Ohio.

+4 votes
Lawrence (From Ireland) married Jane Vaughn (spelling might not be correct) from Wales, and they had the following children:

Mary J., Amelia, Ester, Joseph (My Great Grandfather), Ellen, Charles, Thomas, John, Samuel, and Mariam.  

Lawrence and Jane (and a few of their children) are buried in Brookfield Cemetery, Brookfield, Trumbull, Ohio. (Credit Ancestry.com for this information.) I have looked all over the internet on dozens of websites and have always come up empty.  There are many other Kerr's buried in Ohio, but my grandmother always insisted that we were not related to them.

Please help if you can.  My Grandmother looked for information for more than 50 years, but unfortunately, she passed away in 2008, and I have been tasked with continuing the search. there are many reasons I am looking for information, including genetic research purposes.

Thank you very very much for any information you might be able to provide.
