In Reply to: Nancy and Virlinda Dawson (sisters) parents by Sharon Swan of 6118

Verlinda Swan may be the daughter of Henry after all. I read a letter in the Kentucky state archives with word-of-mouth information that Henry had 10 or more children. Just because certain lists of children are repeated over and over does not mean they are correct or complete.
In addition, I have seen the grave of Verlinda Swan and she is buried on land once owned by John Wells Dawson (son of Henry), in the Dawson Cemetery south of Ellsworth, IL. Near her grave is that of JWD's daughter Nancy Dawson Harrison. JWD donated the land for the cemetery. If Verlinda is not Henry's daughter, she is probably the daughter of John Lowe Dawson, who lived out the latter part of his life in Urbana, OH. He was Henry's brother.
