Re: Pr. George To Allegany Co, MD
Some Dawson reference material had the following:Edward Dawson was the son of William Dawson and Elizabeth (surname not given). Edward was born after 1792 (first publication had apparently had it as born after 1781). Was noted that Edward was a minor at the time of his father's death in 1802.Edward lived in Allegany Co, Md; married Elizabeth Addison there on September 18, 1813. Edward died in 1834, with Elizabeth dying between 1872 and 1874. (There were only four children listed, but there could have been more, as the lists on some families were incomplete.) Listed were: (1) Sarah Addison Dawson, born 1818, MD; unmarried. (2) Lyddia Dawson, born 1831, married 1851 to James Barnett. (3)Isabella Dawson, born 1835???, married Jabez Monzell. (4) Somerville Dawson, born 1839???
Edward's father, William Dawson was the son of William Dawson and Elizabeth Marbury. William was born in 1738 in Prince George's Co, MD. William and Elizabeth had four sons: (1) William, married Hannah, died 1824; (2) Benjamin, married Ruth, died 1842; (3) Edward, born after 1781 (or 1792), who married Elizabeth Addison (4)Thomas, born after 1781, married Mary Combs.
