Lawrence Gearin
    Please help me identify the people in these pics. Lawrence Gearin
    Lawrence J Gearin is one of the soldiers. The young boy pic is William J Gearin - both brothers. Put mouse pointer over pic to see if the person/s are found yet.
    These pics found in an old wallet. Probably from the Gearin Family of Arlington Ma - and Hartford Conn.

    Maybe Edward Gearin

    -Or possibly Gaffney from Lexington, Ma Woburn St.

  • Notes 
    • This Edward is listed in the SS Death Index- how ever a family bible has Edward Gearin death date at 1983. Helen Gearin's written account of the family has 16 Jul 1906 as the birth. No SS Death Index found for a 1983 death date for this individual. Bible info seems incorrect.
