The Lawson-Oaks-Siler-Bryant Families of KY., TN., VA., & NC

Updated August 23, 2004

Researching The Lawson, Siler, Oaks, Bryant and other related families of N.C., KY., TN., MO., and VA.
My primary research is in the Lawson Family, beginning with James Lawson, who married Elizabeth Betty Croley, daughter of Littleberry Croley.
My Siler research begins with Benedict Siler of Germany who married Maria Elizabeth and through Andreas Siler who married Maria Catherina to Plikard Deidrick Siler, Sr., who married Elizabeth Hartsoe, on coming to America.

Please see links below for information. If you can add to or correct this data for any of the listed families and/or related families, I would appreciate your contacting me by E-mail at the address above.

The information and photos in these files have been gathered from numerous researchers, for which I am gratfull. I have not verified any of it, though I believe it to be accurate. Anyone wishing to use it may feel free to do so.
On the Siler branch of the family, I found the book by T. E. Siler, "The Siler Family", to be invaluable. As far as I know this book is still available. For information on where to obtain the book, please e-mail me at the address above.
I recently had the privilege of meeting a cousin of the Lawson Clan, who has shared a great deal of information with me, unlocking and bringing together many loose ends. Jeanie Lou Lawson Horseman (daughter of Woodrow)and her Husband Ike, have and are doing extensive research in the James Lawson (married Elizabeth Croley) and Isham Lawson (married Nancy Croley) branches of the Lawson ancestory. Jeanie descends from the James Lawson line.
Of possible interest to any Lawson descendant, is the LAWSON REUNION held each year in Whitley County, KY, near Williamsburg and Jellico, TN. For time and location, please contact me at the e-mail address below.
