The point of this collection is to show the various lines from Amos and Mary Dawson through to the current day contemporary cousins.

Much thanks to Alleene for getting the ball rolling for me, and to Nora for sending stacks of information, and for Karen who is a great researcher. Also, Tracy (Betsy) helped unknowingly with the initial web design. And Bonnie has filled in some gaps. Sally sent descendant charts. This site is dedicated to the Dawson Cousins.
