Lawrence-4441 and Larrance-6 appear to represent the same person because: In my family history they spelled the name Larrance and the GEDCOM didn't match that with your Sarah Lawrence. I am certain that they are the same person.

Sarah is 39 degrees from Graham Chapman, 25 degrees from Janet Wild and 13 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
