I have a letter from my Great Grandfather Elgin Roy Dawson (or Roy Elgin Dawson, depending on the paperwork) written to my mother Donna Dawson Asala in 1976. Roy was born in DeKalb Texas to William Perry Dawson and Florence Etta Kendrick (I've also seen her name written as Marietta by her other son Lon Dawson. She went by Etta and later married Elkin Knight.)
The letter Roy wrote states that a "second cousin of mine has information on everyone that goes back to the late 1600s, if I can locate her will see if I can get. It has about 150 pages and a few maps." He never mentioned who this cousin was and I don't have any other information. My branch of the Dawsons was in Monroe County, Mississippi;and Bowie County, Texas; and Bryan County, Oklahoma. I'm looking for any information or connections to these Dawsons, as I can't find much concrete information beyond Roy. Would love to find some kinfolk, or discover who this "second cousin" is; although she is probably long gone, someone might have the information.
