I doubt this is a connection but you have to admit that the name Carlton Dawson is an usual one, that is, you dont encounter it often. My uncle was Carl Dawson. Born around March 1929 and passed away in November of 49 of kidney disease. His father was a John Dawson who disappeared when Carlton was 2 or 3 and his whereabouts are still unknown. Most of the Dawsons I know about are in Iowa. Anyway, an odd bit of trivia and wishes for a long and healthy life to you!
