ANSWERED IN 2011....John is son of Cudge (Kudge). Sarah might have always talked about "Uncle Cudge" but indications are that he was her grandfather, not her uncle.

Looking for a connection between Alfred "Cudge" Dawson and John Dawson b. 1875. (from Randall Bible)

I have been searching for an Etherton connection to
the Dawson's for years. This is a little later than
what I am looking for, but I think there was an
Etherton connection prior to 1800. In "The
Intruders", in 1804, Etherton Dawson received
permission to cross the Cherokee lands of Tennessee to
Franklin County, GA. He was listed by himself (other
entries list multiple people when there were multiple
people traveling together). He would have had to be
grown, therefore, probably born 1780 give or take. In
1810, my ancestor, Francis Etherton Dawson, was born
in TN and is found on the 1850 census in IL. I do not
know who his parents were, but feel there must be some
connection to the Etherton Dawson crossing the
Cherokee lands prior to this birth (father,
grandfather, uncle or cousin). The Etherton name
passed through several generations of my family. Do
you happen to know of any Etherton/Dawson unions prior
to Polly and William?
