Thayer's Note:

a Lt. March's full name and birth data are from his AOG obituary.

There are several places in Pennsylvania that are now called Lawrenceville, or have been in the past. Lt. March's connection thruout his life with Montgomery County and Pottstown makes it likely that Parker Ford (the more common modern spelling), at the edge of Chester County bordering Montgomery, is the place meant in his obituary.
