Lawson Family

Letter from Brad Allen states:

"The name 'Lawson' comes from a distant relative named Janet Mannookian. Her mother-in-law was an Allen and had a copy of a hand-written genealogy which was done by the great granddaughter of Hezekiah Allen back in the early 1900's. She stated that she thought the maiden name was Lawson."
