My father added the "s" to the family name shortly after he came to USA. His mother was an Ethel or Theresa Dawe born in Kelligrews. Her mother, my Great Grandmother was Susannah Mercer of Long Beach Pond ?; her spouse was Isaac Dawe. They married in 1880. In addition to Theresa they also had at least three sons, Andrew ( who was killed in a mine cave in - 1915); James and Michael. My father Patrick Dawe was born in 1905 to Therese Dawe- Father unknown. Don't have much info and am not quite sure what I have compiled so far is correct. If any of this matches anything you might have I would be most appreciative to know. Thanks!
