Subject: [MDALLEGA] Margaret Ann Dawson born about 1830 in Allegany Co., Md. Need parents
Date: Wed, 4 Oct 2000 07:09:15 EDT
Anyone know of Margaret Ann Dawson, she was born about 1830 and wish to find
out who her parents were in Allegany Co. She later in Oct. 23, 1855 marries
to a Robert R. Riggs in ALlegany Co., MD. Margaret was known to have lived at
least past her 72nd birthday since she was living in Rowlesburg, WV in 1902.
Need to know of what family Margaret Came from since I found two Mary Dawsons
but the one is 18 in the 1850 census and other was age 21. I am guessing the
one who was age 21 in the 1850 census might be correct but I want to be sure.
The one I found who was age 21 was living in the household of Rebecca Dawson
who apparently was widowed since she is listed as head of house age 48 and
born in Virginia. Also living in this house with Rebecca and Mary were
Priscilla age 19, Golda age 12 and a Susan age 8 and a John age 4.
Do you think I may have the correct family for my Margaret Ann Dawson, and if
so who was the husband of Rebecca Dawson?
