One of only two titles known to bear the name of J. H. Lawton as printer working in Henkel family's press office; that brief presence suggests Lawton's employment in New Market while the remainder of the male family members attended the contentious meetings of the North Carolina Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the summer 1820 over David Henkel's ministry, meetings that led to a schism that produced a competing Tennessee Synod.
