Wayne & Debbie:

Why don't you e-mail your address and I will send you hard copies of some of this stuff.

Also - Let me comment on a couple more of these names you asked about. I cannot, although I have tried, figure out who this Edmund Lawson was that had s son named Clement. There is an older Clement Lawson who moved to Madison County, Indiana. HIs daughter married Dalzell Manis who became very wealthy and there is mention of this Clement Lawson in Dalzell's biography. (I can send you a copy of the biography.) I cannot locate a younger Clement, though there is a "Clem" Lawson in Banks' household in 1850.

I BELIEVE, although I have no proof, that Mace Lawson is Mason Lawson who also moved to Indiana. On the 1850 census Indiana (I cannot remember the county right now) Mason Lawson's children are born in Tennessee at the right time for him to be "Mace" Lawson.

The Banks, Manis and families of Thomas Lawson (b. ca. 1780 NC) who married Rachel (___?___) had land transactions with Mendenhalls. Anderson Lawson, Sr. who married Anna Johnson Cantrell in about 1829 and had a large family is generally regarded as Thaomas and Rachel Lawson's son. ( I think Emanuel Lawson may have also been Thomas and Rachel's son.) Anyway, Anderson Lawson had a land transaction with a Mendenhall.

An interesting side note is the divorce of Anna Johnson Cantrell from her first husband. (She later married Anderson Lawson, Sr.) The divorce petition (to the TN state legislature) is signed by a Clement Lawson, among others, in the Richardson Creek community.

Did Paskel live long enough to be on the 1880 census? if so, what does he give for his parent's place of birth?
