A Bunch of Brock Obituaries, Part III

These are a bunch of obituaries for the Brock family, mostly of central Virginia, namely Hanover, Henrico and the city of Richmond. They were part of a research project I did several years ago so I might as well post them here. They are in no particular order. There may also be some associated notes for different people. If you are interested in anyone here, let me know as I probably have a lot on them.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, September 19, 1913:
"LAWRENCE - Died, at the residence of her son, Mr. C. E. Lawrence, No. 2 South Robinson Street, at 1:30 P. M., September 18, 1913, MRS. SARAH M. LAWRENCE, aged 73 years, wife of the late A. M. Lawrence. She is survived by five sons and two daughters, as follows: William H., Charles E., J. Alpheus, W. Howard, Corrie L. Lawrence, Mrs. Laura S. Brock and Mrs. Fanny Carter; also a sister, Mrs. Martha Waldrop, and twenty-three grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. Funeral from Randolph Street Baptist Church SATURDAY EVENING, 4 o'clock. Interment in Hollywood."

Sarah was buried in section 10, lot 95 of Hollywood Cemetery on September 20, 1913. Her body was removed to plat M, section 8, division 2, grave 3 of Riverview Cemetery on March 31, 1926.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, March 15, 1908:
"WILLIAM H. BROCK - Mr. William H. Brock died at his home on Broad Street Road yesterday, in the fifty-eighth year of his age. He is survived by his widow and six children - Messrs. Welford and Royal Brock, of Richmond, and Linwood and Leslie Brock, and Mrs. Percy Lawrence and Mrs. Irving Butler, of Henrico county. The funeral will be held from the home to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock."

I guess I should have just added these as part of"Part II" but I thought there were more!
