No, I don't know Jane George or Christopher Dawson but I am certain that Jane was related to Nicholas George who was involved with Accakeek Iron Works in Stafford. Essentially, Overwharton Parish is synonymous with Stafford County and I am assuming that you obtained this information from the Register of Overwharton. I am presently working on a book about Accakeek Iron Works in Stafford and am curious about Christopher Dawson. I have a business ledger form Accakeek that spans the years 1749-1760 but it does not contain Christopher's name. Dawson is not a local Stafford name and I usually find that these "non-local" names are people who worked at the furnace and often came to Stafford from Maryland. You might check some 18th century Maryland sources to see if the Dawsons show up there.
