Robert: I have some info that I would love to share. I don't have any info on Dawson other then he was left soem land, but I would love to know some info from your bible recrods. Let me know what kind of info you want and I will pass it along. I am currently waiting for some info from the National Historic Register of NC on the house. The house was owned by James, Dawson's dad, and I have heard about another house in Smithfield that was also owned by James and then Thomas, I am still researching that one. I can forward what inof I find out about the Durham House to you if you like with other info that you are looking for.
looking forward to hearing from you soon
