Is there a way to find out who Lemuel Dawson Road was named after? I have a few Lemuels in my family tree and it would be cool if it was named after one of them.

For some reason your message was deleted ??? Lemuel Dawson Road is named after my gg grand dad
Family went thru the process required,for the name change. I am not sure what the previous name was. My gg grand lived there most of his life in fact never left the property.
The area was called Jericho, I saw this my self on land/property papers and it is listed as Jericho Village
I have not been sucessful in finding out the history
Family story is that was once a breeding farm for slaves.
Lemuel Dawson was the only sibling who was not born a slave and was aprox 11 years old in the 1870 census
