This death notice for Mehetabel (Morton) LAWRENCE (d 28 Apr 1849 - St. Joseph, Buchanan, MO) appeared in the Thursday , May 5, 1849, edition of the Missouri Whig (Palmyra, MO):
On the 28th ult., at St. Joseph, Mo.,
Mrs. MEHETABLE LAWRENCE, wife of
Mr. George Lawrence, formerly of this
place, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Morton,
of this county."

The St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri, place of death is suggestive that George and Mehetable (Morton) LAWRENCE might have migrated to St. Joseph, MO, after their marriage on 11 Dec 1845 with George LAWRENCE returning to Marion County after the death of his wife.
This presents St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri, as another place to look for applicable LAWRENCE records both before and after 1850.
