NoteVol. 4 of Obituaries From Ontario's Christian Guardian, 1861 to 1870, Donald A. McKenzie, 2008, Global Heritage Press, page 195, reads as follows:

Lawrason, Joseph died Aug. 27, 1867, in his 57th year, at his residence, Simcoe. Mr. Lawrason resided for many years at St. George, where he was a member of the Wesleyan Church. - Sept. 11, 1867, p. 147, D.N.

Joseph's date of death, August 27, 1867, is confirmed by the date on his gravestone at St. George cemetery where he is buried with his wife Ann, his daughter Sophia Lawrason Moe, and his son Miller Douglas Lawrason.
