New Hampshire Dawson Line

I am trying to patch together my Dawson Family line and I have hit a road block. I am from the line of John Thomas Dawson. He was born in England in 1874, and immigrated to the US when he was around the age of 13. The facts that I know about him are the following: He was married to Mildred Maye Haskell in 1907. We recently found his Marriage certificate that listed his parents names as James Dawson and Lucy Hardman. I can't find any more info on his parents.

With Mildred they had one daughter; Lucy A. (she died as a teenager in Manchester NH), and 5 sons; James(1914), Richard (1916), Neill (1919), Lloyd (1922), and Bruce (1929).

John Thomas lived and worked in Manchester, New Hampshire for the better part of 30 years (info from the 1910-1930 census), and worked as a fireman for a cotton mill.

I have also been told that the 4 oldest boys formed a country western singing group and traveled around to the different radio stations singing, but I have not found documentation of that:)

This is all I have been able to find. I have not been able to find out when/where he died, any more info on his parents (other than their names), or anything on any siblings he might have.

If you belong to this line and have any extra info, I'd love to get in contact. Or if you are bored and would like to take on the challenge of finding out more about this mystery man, I would love all the help I can get! :) Thanks so much!!
