Seeking information on Stephen Dawson, born ca. 1804 in Nelson County (or Albermarle Co), VA. He died after 1880 in possibly the Rockfish area of Nelson Co., VA. Wife was Dicy (or Dicie or Decinia) Wade, married 5/4/1829 (by IGI Index) in Albermarle Co., VA.
From the 1850 census for Nelson Co., to the 1860-1870 census for Upshur Co., WV and then back to the 1880 census for Rockfish, Nelson Co., VA, I have found the following children:
Elizabeth, b. ca. 1833; William Dawson, b. ca. 1833; Melinda Jane, b. ca. 1837; John, b. ca. 1839; James D, b. ca. 1841; (George) Washington H, b. ca. 1844 (d. 1930 in Upshur); and Thomas J, b. ca. 1847.
Can anyone connect to this family? Maybe help me with some blanks that I have. Thank you so much for your time. Sincerely, Tina
