The Lawson's were from England(Wales?). The earliest roots here were in SC, Ala, Ark, Mo and Iowa
The Allisons are Mo and located in Iowa, Mo, Calif, Colo, Okla.
The Bay family is only known to be from Mo.
The Guhl family came to Iowa from Germany in the late 1800's
The Wright family were known to have been in New Mex, Calif.
The Christian Family were known to be in Mo
The Taylor family were in Ark
The Christenot were in New Mex and some are known to be in Fla.
The Clay family are from Okla
The Hyde Family came from Germany and settled in Iowa
The Thornton family we know nothing about except the name
