I descend from YDNA proven Richard Lawson (1789 - 1852) from the Falling River Lawson's of East Tennessee. He is buried in Bradley County, TN at Flint Springs Cemetery. We are all very well informed of our line. Richard was my 3rd Great Grandfather, closely matches Drury, Drewry, Drewery... I match many Potts, Watts and even Corntassell. I would like to work with someone to add my Richard. I have all the descendants from Richard, but we actually think Drury may be the father of our Richard. We need some help. Thanks! Many Lawson's still live in Bradley County, TN.
I am an experienced researcher/genealogist on the Lawson line of East Tennessee. I am able to help others. I am originally from the area of Bradley County, TN. I'm going back there to live soon. I am in Florida now. I descend from his daughter Elizabeth Jane Lawson and her husband James A Carroll (married Oct 1849 in McMinn County, TN) Richard Lawson and Mary Campbell Lawson are in the same County at that time!
