Contributor: North Yarmouth Historical Society

Members of the Lawrence family resided in Gray, Pownal and North Yarmouth. James Lawrence (1842-1939) of Pownal married Ellen Marston (1843-1937) of North Yarmouth in 1869, and they, along with their five children, resided at Riverside Farm (on North Road).


As a young man, James, along with his older brother Luther, served in the Civil War. They enlisted in the 11th Maine Volunteer Infantry, Company H. James was wounded in the battle of Deep Bottom on August 16, 1864; his brother Luther was killed in the same battle.

This is a photograph of James Lawrence in his Civil War uniform, at the approximate age of 20.
