* The Lawson's from Nackawic, New Burnswick, Canada*

Updated March 18, 2014

My name is David Sterling Lawson. I am a 6th generation descendent of Alexander Lawson who was born somewhere in the county of Dumfriesshire, Scotland, about 1795.

Alexander Lawson left Scotland in 1817 at the age of 22 and sailed to North America arriving in New Brunswick, Canada in the same year.

Any information would be appreciated. I would like to say that the information I have acquired from online search and family members. Several names for the Brewer and Betts line were research from the New Brunswick Archives.


Most Wanted:

Parents of Alexander Lawson, 1795, DFS, Scotland,
Parents and descendant of Justus Rolland Betts, who was born in Doaktown, Northumberland Co., New Brunswick, Canada some time late 1800.
And descendant of Adolphus Brewer who was born about 1790, New Brunswick, Canada

If you have any information about dates or locations that are missing please Email me, and in the subject line put "family tree info". Any information would be beneficial to this family tree project.

Thank you and I hope you like the information on these pages.
