I'm looking more into the children of Joseph Dawson (b 1772-ish) and Mary (Polly?) (b 1784-ish).
I am a descendent of their son William (b 1817 or 1818) in Kentucky. Up until today I only had info on William Dawson (my direct line) but discovered on another post on here that he may have had 6 siblings: Jane, Robert, Jeremiah, John, Joseph Jr and Elizabeth. I know NOTHING about these lines and would love more info.
My line goes as follows: Joseph Dawson b 1772 md Mary Polly b 1784. Son William born 1817 Kentucky md Eliza Jane Wilson b 1821 from Virginia. Son Joseph Clarence b 1841 md Mariah West b 1841 both born in Indiana. Son Joseph Clarence (Jocie) b 1874 in Iowa md Viola Ann McKeever b 1875 from Iowa. Son Carl Otis b 1902 in Oklahoma md Edith Thompson b 1906. Son Loren Thomas Dawson b 1934 md Edith Mae McBride. Son David Thomas Dawson b 1957 md Patricia Flaherty b 1961 both from California. Daughter Trish Dawson born 1979 md Shane Holly b 1976. Daughter Rory born 2003 and son Foxx born 2008.
Can't believe it all fits in that one little paragraph! Anyway...couldn't figure out how to get further than Joseph and Mary Dawson - but now that I have a maiden name that might help. Anyone interested in sharing info is welcome to email me...thank you!
