Hello. Thank you so much for your reply. I do not know if this is the same family or not. I have a Berry K. Dawson who was in Collin Co., Texas. He married a Sarah Davis and had a son namedCharles Dawson. Charles was born around 1861. Then Berry K. Dawson married a M. E. (Mary) Tucker and they had a daughter in 1870 named Kimzey. I found where a 40 yr. old male named Kimzey Dawson died in Collin Co. in 1870. I am thinking this male is Berry K. Dawson. Berry & Sarah are listed in the 1860 census as Dosen.In the 1870 census only Mary E.Dawson, Charles and Kimzey are listed and they are living with an Elizabeth Anderson in Collin Co., Texas. Kimzey is an orphan in Hunt Co., Texas by the 1880 census.
