Hannah Dawson ? was born Abt. 1720 in Henrico, Frederick, Virginia, and died date unknown in Henrico, Frederick, Virginia. She married William Sr Frost on Abt. 1738 in Henrico, Frederick, Virginia, son of John Frost and Sarah.
Notes for Hannah Dawson ?: ) According to a hypothesis of Mrs. Irene S. Donohoe, 9414 Woodland Drive, Silver Spring, Maryland, the maiden name of Hannah (FROST), the wife of William FROST, Sr. of Frederick County, VA, was "possibly Dawson." Mrs. Donohoe did not specify her reason for her hypothesis.
As far as the compiler can determine, Mrs. Donohoe's hypothesis is based on (1) the first name of Dawson McCORMICK (born October 19, 1786), the second son of John McCORMICK and Ann/Anna FROST (a daughter of William FROST, Sr. and Hannah FROST); and (2) the then current naming pattern of naming a couples' second son for the mother's father.

Deed 24th February, 1795, by Thomas Frost and William Frost and Elizabeth Frost, wife of Thomas, to Benj. Berry and Thos. McCormick. Recorded in Berkeley May 2001 "...FRANCES HICKMAN. William FROST born about 1720 in Frederick County, VA, and Hannah [nee?] FROST born about the same time and in the same place were mygrandparents (x4). They had 14 children born between 1740 and about 1767. However, William FROST and a woman named, Elizabeth HICKMAN, had a child out of wedlock in 1741. That child (whom William FROST acknowledged in his will and called his daughter) was called Frances HICKMAN, sometimes FROST. I show that Frances HICKMAN (FROST) was married to Francis McCORMICK and diedin 1785. They had at least one child, I can't find her name at the moment. Frances HICKMAN (FROST)'s mother, Elizabeth HICKMAN, was the widow of Isaac HICKMAN at the time of Frances' birth. Elizabeth HICKMAN later married Capt. Peter RUST.I don't know the circumstances of the pregnancy, meaning I don't know if Elizabeth was William's mistress in the traditional sense or if she worked in the FROSTs home or what. But, as I mentioned, William mentions their child, Frances, in his will as his daughter, also as William FROST, Jr.'sister and requests that he pay his half-sister a certain sum of money. Some folks think Frances was the child of young William FROST, but the dates don't make any sense, nor does the mention of young William as her brother in the senior William's will.I think I said in my old message that I didn't know who James JETT was. I still don't recognize his name or his children's names. They don't appear to be part of the FROST family. But then there are several FROST families in Colonial America. Some were New Englanders and some were Southerners.My clan is from the south."
