I found a news article concerning an Isaac Lawlor.
An Isaac Lawlor showed up in the 1870 census for Portland, Multnomah county, Oregon. He was 23 and worked as a Coachman for the S.G. Reed family. He was born in Ireland.
In the 1880 census, he shows up in two different census records, but it is the same person. His last name is indexed as Lawler. LAWLER, ISAAC(1880 U.S. Census) OREGON , MULTNOMAH, PORTLAND Age: 35, Race: WHITE, Born: IREL Series: T9 Roll: 1083 Page: 324 Enumerated June 12, 1880 Lines 34-39

I am not related. I just happen to come across the article and thought I would pass it on. Ellie
