My ancestor was W.M. Dawson (thought to be William M.), who was born sometime early 1800's in Kentucky. Around 1840, he moved down to Amite county, Mississippi and married Elizabeth Jones Haygood. They had 1 child, Dallas Athalone Dawson, born 1845 Amite MS. By 1849, W.M. and Elizabeth Dawson both died, leaving Dallas to be raised by his mother's family. I have been trying to link my line of Dawsons back to some Kentucky Dawsons but haven't had any luck. Any Dawson researchers out there have any information I'd sure appreciate it.
