BirthAnn Jerusha Carpenter was born on 28 June 1808. 
MarriageShe married Joseph Lawrason, son of Miller Lawrason and Elizabeth Purvis, on 5 December 1833; The wedding date of 5 December 1833 for Joseph and Anne is based on notes left by Thomas Stuart Lawrason.

The transcription done of St. George Cemetery by the Brant County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society has her date of death as 5 April, 1878. A later transcription done in 2003 shows her year of death as 1879.
