Hi there! I am trying to find the names of the parents of James Levi Lawson and his wife, Mary Newland Lawson, born early 1800's. This has been a tough one for me and any help would be so very much appreciated. Thank you!! I should have put in there that James was born about 1813. Sorry ;(

    It appears that Mary and James were married in Jefferson County, Ohio.

    The 1840 Census shows two James Lawsons listed next to each other in Knox, Jefferson, Ohio. One 60-70 and one 20-30 which would fit.
