This Home Page is dedicated to my Great, Great, Great Grandfather William Riley Lawson 1821-1900 and his descendants. I am currently researching his ancestors and kindred folk. William was born in North Carolina in about 1821. It is believed that his family resided on the border of Virginia and North Carolina. In the Patrick Co.,Va. & Stokes Co.,NC Region. First known record of William is when he married Nancy Runnels(Reynolds) in Grayson County,Va. in 1846. Then he shows up with his family in the 1860,1870,1880 Census and in family marriage records. I am also reseaching our allied families the Boyds, Martins, Sayers, Cooks, Christleys, Quesenberrys, Blackwells, Williams, Millers, Woodwards, Wheelers, Sandefurs, Jennings, Shreeves, Fullens, Larkeys and Dickersons. I have alot of general Lawson, related and non-related, family geneology data and will accept any inquires and willing to share any information on them and my allied families. Please limit the region to Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. My family has basically stayed in the Central Appalachia region since the late 1700s.
