Notes for A
ZRUM OZWIN DAWS (4):
The Ist history I have of (Azrum Ozwin Daws) is in Jackson CO. Tenn. In the Census of 1850. It has him his First wife Elizabeth Butler Daws and Five children. James William Brn Jackson Co. Tenn.1842. Martha Ann Brn. Jackson Co. Tenn 1844. Thomas Stewert Brn. Jackson CO. Tenn. 1846. Mary A (Polly) Brn. Jackson Co. Tenn. 1847. Last was Jasper Newt. Brn. Jackson CO. Tenn. 1848. The next Acount I have of him is in Union Co. IL. and he is a widower marrying (Simca Hutson) 02-11-1852) They had two childern from this marriage. Ist being Martha Morena Brn.1854 in Union CO. IL. then John Martin Brn. 1857 Union Co. IL. I have no notice of death on Simca Hutson but she died some time after 1857 and before 1864. Because marriage records show Ozwin (Widower) Marrying Julia Ann Pratt (09-09-1864). I have Census of Ozwin & Family 1870 Union Co, IL. Ozwin 46 Brn. in Virginia. Julia Ann 30 Brn. in Cadwell Co. KY. Ist wife Childern in household (Mary A (Polly) 22 Brn in Tenn. 2nd Wife Childern Martha Morena (16) Brn Union co. IL. John Martian (12) Brn. Union Co. IL. They had Julia Ann Childern by her Ist marriage to James Wilson. Mary Jane Wilson (9) yrs Brn in IL. Racheal Ann (8) Brn in IL.James Wilson Julias Ist husband died at Vicksbuirg, Miss.in Civil war and is buried at Vicksburge national Cemetary. Their oldest son James Mathew was not in the house hold at that time (13) yrs old. He could have been hired out on a farm at that time But what information I have Gathered over the yrs. I think he was living with his Fathers relatives.( Alonzo) Julia and Ozwins Ist Brn. was not in the Census. He would have been (5) yrs old. Henry Walter my Grand Father was listed as (3) yrs old. Amanda was listed as (9) months old. In 1880 Census showed Ozwin as (55) Brn. in Virginia, His father was Brn. in North Carolina and mother Brn. in Tenn. It showed Julia (40) Brn. in KY. Martha Morena Brn. IL. Her mother Simca Hutson Brn in KY. Mary Jane Wilson Brn. IL (21), Racheal Ann Wilson (18) brn IL. Alonzo (16) brn. IL. He was Julia and Ozwin:s Ist Brn. in 1865. Henry Walter (13) 2nd. Brn (1867) Amanda (11) 3rd. Brn. 1869. Otis (9) 4th. brn. 1870, . Bert ( 7) 5th Brn.. May 7, 1873. Ellen E (5) 6th brn 1875 Lydia Maude 4yrs ^7th brn 1876. Effie Ethel (2) 8th Brn. 1878 Lorita E 9th brn. according to my records in 1882. This is all I have on this girl. Julia and Ozwin Seperated in 1883 or 1884 She ran off with another man (JG Adkins) and left Great Grand Father Ozwin with several children to care for. Grand Father Walter was (16) at that time, was plowing that day and had a terrible tooth ache all day, he said he thought when he got home that eve he would get his mom to put some thing on it to stop the pain. He was really disappointed and never for gave his mother for what she done. Alonzo was (18) Amanda was (14) Otis (12) Lydia Maude (10) Bert was about (8) Effie Ethel (6). Both those last girls had a nerve disease and had to be put in to a home after Ozwin died in February 9,1901. According to Great Grand mother Julia Ann Pratt:s Civil war pension Papers Ozwin Daws died february 09- 1901. I can find know death certificate on him but my dad Elmer Ozwin said that he is buried at the little Lick Creek Cem, as you turn off of interstate 57 at Lick Creek Exit go east to ward Lick Creek and it is on the south side of road before you get to Lick Creek. I could not find a stone or marker of any kind, According to a signed statement that Julia had in her pension papers, Ozwin was seeing a docter at Lick Creek, Union Co. IL. when he died. Docter A.J. Gourley made a written statement that Ozwin died on February 09-1901, and that he had treated him at various times for organic heart Disease for 8 to 10 Months. this is all the death records I have on Ozwin. He also stated that he thought that Ozwin was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. The best that I can find out is that Thomas Daws, Ozwin dad was English and married a half blood Cherokee By the name of( Sarah) or Martha Hicks this is not documented. She came to IL.Union CO. Sometime before 1870, because I find her in the 1870 Census of Union Co. Sarah Daws (71) she lived a few houses from Ozwin. This is the only time I find this Person in IL. According to family history Great Great Grand Mother Sarah Daws left Union Co IL. 1872 looking for her people that were in the trail of tears. She left there in a covered wagon going to Oklahoma. My Grand Father Henry Walter was (6) yrs old. and he was brn. in 1867.I also found a Martha Dawes in Cobden Precinct in 1870 Census,This could have been her, she has the right first name. Ozwin had a Guardian ship taken out in Jonesboro, Union CO. IL. april 25th 1863 for his brother James A Daws son Andrew Jackson Daws (17) yrs. old. It stated that his Parents was deceased. I have no more information on this at this time. This is some new Information I have from Ozwin Civil war pension papers on his son Thomas Daws, sent in by Ozwin August 30 1890. Dec. 30 1892 Ozwin was awarded $12.00 a month pension from Thomas:s death, Which they proved was caused by Malaria poisoning and generally impaired health, as consequence to soldiers service. Thomas died at Lick Creek,
Union Co. IL. April 9 1868. Ozwin recieved twenty eight months back pay of $336.00 which he received in January 1893. I have a deed that shows Ozwin buying forty acres of IC Rail Road land for the amount of $320.00. I am certain that the pension back pay money was used for this purchase. He drew this pension untill his death February 8 1901. the last check was January 4 1901 He drew this pension for 10 yrs and 5 months for a total of $1,260.00. Ozwin Married Elizabeth Butler, Dec. 1, 1841, Jackson CO. Tenn. According to those pension papers she died near Lick Creek ,IL March 8 1850. Ozwin pension papers #358462, $12.00 per month. According to Dr, John Gardener, Thomas died from congestive chills, complicated with brain Lesions and Malaria. This was Superinduced by malaria poisoning and generaly impaired Physical health, Consequence of soldier service. I have in those pension papers that Ozwin had a arm and hand that was crippled, it didn:t state which arm. I have no information of a accident that happened to him. I have a statement from a Thomas Butler of Cobden, Union CO. IL. that he was aquainted with Ozwin and Elizabeth Butler before they were married and new when Thomas was Brn. Ozwin:s Ist wife Elizabeth Butler dad was named Thomas But he would been 101 yrs at that time .I also have a statement by a Tilford Brooks and America Brooks stateing they had known Ozwin and Elizabeth before they were married in Jackson Co. Tenn. the statement is dated august 8, 1891. Tilferd, (72) and America (73). I have a statement from Jackson Co. clerk J. H. Chaffie and Henry P Loftis D.C. dated November 25, 1891. That the court house had burned on the night of August 14 1872, Gainsboro, Jackson CO. Tenn. and there is no record of Ozwin and Elizabeth:s Marriage. Ozwin was brn in Virginia in 1824, His brother James William was brn 1822 Maybe had a Younger brother William that was brn. 1829. in Virginia. I have not found their father as of yet.

This is a complaint to the chancellor court in Gainsboro, Tenn.

To the Hon. B. D. Ridly Chancellor & C fending at Gainsboro, Tenn.
This Bill of complaint of John Dawes,James Dawes,William Dawes
and Aurilius Dawes. The three former Citizens of Jackson County and the
latter a Citizen of the state of ILLinois, against William E Jones a Citizen
of Davidson County, Tenn.
Complaint's would respectfully show your Honor that in the year
1843, the defendent called upon them and stated that the amount of the
legacy left them in Virginia by their Grand Mother (Gracy Hicks) would
amount to the sum of one hundred and sixty dollars and no more, and
that he was giong to that State. He was willing to give complaint's one
hundred dollars for their claim. Complaint's are poor ignorant men
and had no means of knowing the true condition of their portion of said
Estate and believing that the defendent was an honest man, they relied
with full confidence upon his statement and sold out to him as above
stated.
Complaint's would show your Honor, that in the year 1839, the
amount to which they were entitled from the Estate of (Gracy Hicks) was
three hundred and thirty two dollars and ninetine cents, and that amount
has been in the hands of the trustee who was appointed by the Chancery
court in Virginia. When to the date of the payment to the defendent, some
time in the year 1843. Complaint's state that the defendent Purchased the
legacy upon his own false and fraudulent mis representating for one
hundred about one sixth of it's value. They further state, that they would
have never sold their claim for this small amount, had they not been most
Fraudentely decieved and imposed upon. Complaint's charge that the
defendent recieved from the trustee John Hicks in Virginia nearly six
hundred dollars and that he is not entitled to more than one hundred and
sixty dollars. Complaint's further state that there was no difficulty upon the
part of the defendant in collecting the money as it was at all times ready
in the hands of the trustee for payment when ever application was made.
In view of the fore going statement's, complaint's ask that the said
William E Jones be made defendant to this bill and that copy & sub c ipinas,
Let him state fully any thing connected with the transaction and particularly
if he did not tell defendents that there was only one hundred and sixty dollars
coming to them, also what he paid complaint's and amount he received from
Trustee John H Hicks, and when he received the same. Upon the final hearing
complaint's ask that it be decreed that the defendant pay back to complaint's
with interest, He recieved over and above one hundred & sixty dollars, the
amount he repersented as coming from the Estate of (Gracy Hicks). Complaint's pray for general relief & C.

12. iv.   MARY A DAWS, b. September 06, 1847, Jackson Co. Tenn.; d. February 22, 1935, Goreville, Johnson Co., IL..
  v.   JASPER NEWTON DAWS, b. 1849, Jackson Co. Tenn.; d. Unknown, Unknown.
  Notes for JASPER NEWTON DAWS:
Jasper Newton Daws, Ozwin:s 5th. child. I have Know record except a 1860 census, showing him in Ozwin:s house hold at 12 yrs. old. My dad always told a story about one of Ozwins boys Running off and joining up with the union army in 1861. and Ozwin sent James and Thomas after him because he was only 14 yrs old. This had to be Jasper Newton. My dad said they went to Cairo IL. after him. They had told a story about getting him and comming thru the Cypress Swamps and how the wild ducks and Geese would set up a clatter when the cannon balls would hit near them. That was as for as my dad ever told the story. So I have done some research on Jasper Newt. in the army records, I found know one in any of the inlistments in Union, Co. IL. nor Williamson, Co.il. but in Vienna, Johnson Co. IL. in 1861 I found a Jasper Newt Davis (21) yrs. old, you had to be twenty one yrs old before you could join with out parents consent. It:s hard to believe that a 14 yr. old could pass for a (21) yr. old. but that is the only way he could have got in. He joined in Vienna, Johnson co. IL. Aug. 22 1861, Company (D), 31 Reg:t IL. Infantry. For period of (3) yrrs. Muster in Roll Dated Cairo, IL. Sept 18, 1861. Thru Oct.,Nov.,Dec.,Jan.,Feb.March,April, May . He was not on the Co. Muster Roll. June 30,1862 he shows on the Co. Muster Roll. This coinsides with my dads story about our Jasper Newt. I beleave that this was him and after they got him home I be leave that he stayed around about (6) months and got his chance and ran off again and went back to the army there in Cairo,IL. I beleave that they figuerd they was no use to go get him again, because he would just run off again. He was with this Company (D), 31st. Reg:t IL.Vol. Infantry for (10) months and he was killed at the Battle of Champion Hill, Miss. May 16,1863. this was one of the battles east of Vicksburg, Miss. when Grant was circleing Vicksburg and comming in from the east west,North and South to isolate Vicksburg from the rest of the south. I need to find a Company D Discription of each individual and I would feel better satisfied whether this was our Jasper Newt or not. In sept. 1997 I recieved a discription of this Jasper Newton Davis and I feel from his description that it he is not our Jasper Newt, This person was dark complexion black hair, hazel eyes, 6-1"height, and in this sheet was (26) yrs old. At that time Our Jasper Newt was only 14 yrs old.
