Edward LA*RENSON, one of my gg-grandfathers, was a lighthouse keeper in Renfrewshire, Scotland, by 1820, but his death notice states he was born in Queens county, about 1786. Given the gaps in the Irish records, I am finding it difficult to trace his parentage or even place and date of birth. Can anyone help?
