I am currently doing research on the Lawler / Patterson / Giarrusso families.
The Lawler Family:
Andrew and Mary Lawler came from Ireland around 1851 and settled in Menlo Park, California.I am trying to reconstruct the family history before this date.
The John Martin Patterson(Paterson) Family:
John Martin Paterson was born around 1840's and was a well known grower in Kirkcaldy, Scotland. His children were born in Kirkcaldy and later immigrated to the United States at the turn of the century.Three of them came to Menlo Park, California. One to the East Coast and one to Victoria, B.C., Canada.
The Giarrusso Family:
I am trying to locate any information about this family. John Giarrusso came to the United States from Italy around 1910-20 and settled in Providence, Rhode Island.
Please contact me if you have any information or leads about any of these families.
Joseph M. Giarrusso
