Brad- Thanks for the information, I got the info about Rebecca Smith from " The Lawsson family of Va."It reads John lawson b. about 1752 Maryland married Rebecca Smith, lived near Annapolis, Maryland then removed to Shenandoah co. Va. about 1799.Then removed to Beards Run, Harrison Co. W.Va. It also lists their children Incliding Alexander and Theophilus. Eight children were named Have most of the names of susans siblings, but didn't know relationship.They show in Powell History Reuben Powell Married Eleanor Bailey--Their children: Nancy Powell b.1822 m. Holsey Lawson ** Benjamin Powell b. about 1812 m.Mary Ann Lawson ** Ralph M. powell b. 1916 m.Roxalina Williams Joseph Powell b. June 26 1817 m. Susan Lawson ** William Powell m. Sarah Roe Reuben S.Powell m.Malinda Bailey Louisa Powell m. John P. Orr
Your message also tied my Lawsons to the Lawsons of Beards run. Which makes my history: Susan b. 1820 d/o of Alexander b.about 1783 who is son of John b. about 1752 son of Thomas b.about 1728 son of John b. about 1698.
My GGrandfather son of Susan lawson was Theophilus Washington POWELl
