      5 William T. Lawrence, the 7th son of Jonathan
      Lawrence and Ruth Riker, was born in New York city
      May 7, 1788. At an early age he entered the store of his brother, Abraham R. Lawrence, and became a correct accountant and a well-informed merchant. On reaching a competent age he united with the same brother as a partner. In the year 1825, he married Margaret Sophia Muller, the daughter of Remburtus F. Muller, originally of Amsterdam, in Holland, who had in early life visited the island of St. Martins, a dependency of Holland ; was long a resident there, and during the first French revolution, became governor of that colony.

      Mr. Muller, before his removal to New York, married Catherine Gibbes, daughter of John S. Gibbes, who, by appointment of the government at home, had preceded Mr. Muller in the government of the island of St. Martins ; and in regard to this family of Gibbes, it may be incidentally stated that the kindred connections of Gibbes, Storkyis and Herliger, held severally, by the same appointment of the Dutch government, the office of governor of St. Martins during successive generations. Mr. Lawrence, after his marriage, removed to that part of the patrimonial land which had fallen to his share, on the eastern side of the Cayuta Lake. He there made expensive and valuable improvements, and being possessed of practical and sound understanding and a liberal heart, he soon became a political adviser amongst his neighbors, and a favorite throughout his district. In the year 1839 he was appointed judge of the county of Tompkins, and in 1847, was nominated for a member of Congress in the district composed of the counties of Tompkins, Chemung and Yates, and was elected to that office, although on previous elections that district had given large majorities in favor of the adverse party. This gentleman is yet living, and has lost nothing of the respect and confidence of those whose attachment to him had thus far ministered to his political and judicial elevation.
