Daniel Lawson b. Abt 1838 in Hawkins or Hancock Co. Tn./ d. 08 Mch 1914 in Beverly,Bell Co. Ky.
Daniel can be found living with Alexander & Susan Lawson in the 1850 Census of Harlan Co. I have the death certificate of Daniel and it indicates the father of Daniel is Elisha Lawson it does not indicate the mother, going on this I assume Daniel is living with his more than likely his grand-father. Daniel also had a stint in the civil war from ;
13 Oct 1862--13 Jan 1863 in Co-G of the Harlan Co. Battalion.
Daniel Lawson married Sarah Brock 25 May 1856 in Harlan Co. and as far as I can tell from research they had six children, what I also have is the will of Daniel Lawson which has the children from his first marriage listed,he was living with his second wife before he married her, his second wife was Elizabeth Farmer he married her on 11 Oct 1874 in Bell Co.Ky. But can be found living with her in 1870 in Clay Co. Ky. They had at least six children.
He had made it to Bell County by the year 1880 and can be found in the Census there it is also known by old timers as Red Bird this is a name taken because of the Indian Chief in the area long way back.
