Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Cassie Lawrason was born on 25 November 1878.1 She was the daughter of Sydney S. Lawrason and Phoebe Elizabeth Coleman.1 She married Frank Hebner.1 She died on 21 January 1963 at Buffalo, New York, at age 84.1 She was buried at St. George, Ontario.1 Sydney Lawrason's obituary places Cassie and her husband in Pittsburgh, but in the 1930 census they are at Youngstown, Ohio. I've found no evidence yet that they had children. Phoebe's obit places Cassie in Rochester, New York, in 1917.
Cassie lived to a fair age. Since she is buried by herself in the St.George Cemetery, it would appear that she must have returned to the area after her husband died. Her stone appears thus: Hebner, Cassie, b.25 Nov 1878, d. 21 Jan 1963

The January 28th, 1963, issue of the Brantford Expositor said that: Mrs. Cassie Hebner of Buffalo, N.Y. died Monday, Jan. 21 in Buffalo. Born in St. George, she was daughter of the late Sydney and Phoebe Lawrason. Surviving are two nieces, Miss Laura Van Every of Toronto and Mrs. A. D. riddell of Brantford. Funeral services were held Wed., Jan. 23, in Buffalo.

I find no evidence of her husband being buried in St. George Cemetery. The Expositor story doesn't mention her burial in St. George Cemetery, but her grave inscription certainly seems to indicate that this isthe case.1
