Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Sophia Augusta Lawrason was born on 23 September 1834.1 She was the daughter of Joseph Lawrason and Ann Jerusha Carpenter.1 She married John Wesley Moe, son of Henry Moe and Teressa M. Coleman, on 24 November 1852 at Bride's Residence, Dumfries Twp, Gore District, Canada West. (notes: Information for the date and location of the marriage of John and Sophia is taken from a transcription of the Christian Guardian, Toronto, as it appears on 377 of Reid's Marriage Notices. The newspaper date is15 December 1852.).1 She died on 27 March 1897 at Simcoe, Norfolk County, Ontario, at age 62.1 She was buried at St. George, Ontario.1 Sophia Lawrason was first cousin to John Wesley Moe's first wife, Amelia Lawrason.
John Wesley Moe was second cousin to them both.
Sophia's death registration says she died April 27, 1897, but that itwas registered March 27, 1897. The online transcription of her grave stone says that she died March 27, 1897. I will take the death date ofApril 27 to be a clerical error.
It states that she was 'married' when she died, so unless this is in error, John Wesley Moe must have been living. Sophia is buried in St. George Cemetery, but her death was recorded in Norfolk County.1
