DAWSON, GARDNER, HENDERSON, HILL posted by Joyce Rogers on Wednesday, March 1, 2000

William and Mary Elizabeth HENDERSON DAWSON immagrated to Jefferson County Penn. from England after 1885 to 1901 and they had son Harry Gardner DAWSON born November 19,1880. We believe William DAWSON and Harry DAWSON worked in coal mines in Jefferson County. Harry started working in mines when he was only 7 years old, that would have been 1887. They moved to Macon County, Macon,Missouri in 1901, when Harry Gardner Dawson married Sarah HILL in Jefferson County Penn. on May 13, 1901. Any information on William and Mary Elizabeth and son Harry Gardner would be appreciated. Mary Elizabeth had been married before in England to a Mr. GARDNER and they had six to seven children. We do not know how many of the children came with them from England..

HAWTHORN, MILLER, SWAB posted by Stacie Schroede on Tuesday, March 14, 2000

Am looking for information on William and Margaret Hawthorn.
In 1850 Census they were in Perry township with children James and John.
In 1860 census they are in Oliver township with children James, Mary Ann, Martha Jane, and William A.
I am a descendant of Mary Ann's daughter, Florence Mae McGee (McKee?). Mary Ann married Levi Swab in 1880.
I did see the obituary for William A. Hawthorne on the obit site and believe that is her brother.
