First of all let me thank you for your help again! I wish that every county had someone with your resources--you really do a great job for everyone.

Okay--I don't know if you remember me or not---but I'm the one searching for that long, lost, elusive Lawson. My sister actually found where she had written in her bible the names of our great grandparents. My g-grandfather was George Washington Lawson & my g-grandmother was Elizabeth Tolbert. Their children were James William, John C., Betty, Sarah Virginia, Earlie Madison, Peter H., Alice, Susan, Jessie, Frank, and Kyle Samuel Lawson( thank you for giving me all of my grandfather's siblings).

The info you gave me on the Tolberts has so many similiarities to the names, dates & even burial places in my family---except for the Dawson.

So if you don't mind I have 4 more ?'s for you---

1) Is the Elizabeth Gravely Tolbert the same Elizabeth in the 1880 Census that has married Joshua Ayers?

2) Do you know any of Elizabeth & George Dawson's children--or where the 2 of them might have lived after marrying?

3) Do you know if George was from Carroll County--if so what was his father's name?

4) And finally--do you think there is any way that George Dawson is really George Lawson and that someone might have transcribed the name wrong?

I know I am reaching but it is odd not to be able to tie anyone in other counties to my family---unless their records are very incomplete.

Thanks so much for the info
