Good morning
Thanks for your reply. My great great grandfather William Dawes is buried in Brucetown, VA, in Frederick County. My grandfather tried in the 1950s to learn more. He did find the date of birth (November 1, 1790)on the tombstone and obtained an unpreserved record of his death which established his birthplace as Frederick County, Va. I assume the Virginia Department of Vital Records would still have that record.
A letter he received speaks to family oral history that William Dawes was a newspaper publisher I have found online that a William Dawes owned and published the Washington Mirror in the 1830s, but no proof it is our William Dawes.
My grandfather put a great deal of effort into attempting to establish a link to William Dawes, who rode with Paul Revere to warn of the British activity. He was not succesful and it is clear there is not a direct line to that William Dawes. We might be his distant cousins, but I cannot verify that.
My e-mail contact information is polbsmo@aol.com. I have extensive information about the line from William down to the present and am happy to share. I would welcome your information. With a birthdate of 1765 it is possible Abraham could be the father of my William.
