He mar 1843 to Anne Nolan [Anna, born 1828, of the family of Nolan of Kilbane, Co.Limerick].
She was born 1828 [by age on grave].
Her children were born from 1844 to 1870, so she must be born about 1823 to 1827.
Laurence is listed as farmer at dau's mar 1871.
Anne died 1883, age 55 yrs.
Laurence died 1896.
See funeral list in Limerick Chronicle, 11 July 1896.
They had issue:

  1. Margaret Frost,
    bapt 7 Oct 1846 [Parteen and Meelick par records].

    Bobby Ryan thought she was from "Bunker Hill, Ballymorris", Co.Clare (unidentified, but just to the W of Punchbowl).

    She was also 1st cousin of his mother.
    They mar at Shanagolden RC church. Marriage wit by James Nolan of Kilbane and Catherine Nolan of Ballyane.
    Transcript of mar cert incorrectly lists her as "Margaret Nolan" dau of "Laurence Nolan", farmer, dead. It is confused because her maiden name is Frost but surname at mar is Nolan.
    No issue by 2nd marriage.

    This line above was hard to sort out!
    Margaret Frost married 1stly to James Nolan and had a son they called James Nolan. James Nolan the father died, and Margaret married 2ndly to his 1st cousin, also called James Nolan. He was the son of another James Nolan. The 2nd marriage was witnessed by another James Nolan. All five James Nolans are related to each other.
