My ancestor was W.M. Dawson (thought to be William M.), born early 1800's in Kentucky. Around 1840, he moved down to Amite county, Mississippi and married an Elizabeth Jones Haygood. They had 1 child, Dallas Athalone Dawson, born 1845 in Amite MS. By 1849, W.M. Dawson and Elizabeth both died, leaving Dallas to be raised by his mother's family. I have been trying to link my W.M. Dawson back to some KY Dawsons, but haven't had any luck. Any of you Dawson researchers have any information on which branch of Dawson's my family comes from or any info that could help me?
