My father was Frank Millard Lawson, born on Oct. 1, 1902 at Tennyville, Missouri and past away on May 8, 1964 in Nebr.. Frank's parents where Amos and Essa (Essie) Lawson. He had a full brother named William (Willie) Lawson, two half sister's and one half brother by the last name of Haines. Essie's maiden name was Groat, (of Irish descent), she was born Sept. 6, 1883 and past away on Nov. 6, 1961. They divorced and she remarried, and took the boys with her. Amos was of Swedish (Pennsylvania-Dutch) descent, and from New York, and was last known to be in Kentucky. I have more information on Essie. I don't know if this is any connection to Ira ? Anybody know of Amos Lawson?
