Here is what I have about Lawson Dendy:
Lawson Dendy b. ca 1846 in AL, d. 15 Aug 1894 in Escambia Co. AL; m.
Shirley on 7 Dec 1865 in Pike Co. AL; children: Dora M. Dendy b. ca
Georgia A. Dendy b. ca 1858, William S. b. ca 1878. These cannot be
children, he would have been 11 when Dora was born and if they were his
children they would be using their father's name. Maybe they were a
children. Let me know if you find out anything farther about Lawson.

My husband, James E. Welch, is decended from Thomas C. and Elizabeth
Cason Dendy
through their daughter, Priscilla Dendy, who was the 1st wife of Ira J.
Joseph Leander Milton Dendy was the grandson of Thomas C. and Elizabeth
Dendy through their son John D. and Mary McLean Dendy.
I hope this will help and not be more confusing, some of my information
different people contradicts itself.
