|It has taken many years to piece together this much of our Lawson Heritage. This included some lucky breaks and many hours of research. The most recent piece of the puzzle was the discovery of Daniel Franklin Lawson ,our greatgreatgrandfather, through the use of yDNA. It is my hope that having this information will knit the family together and give future generations a sense of being and purpose in their connection to history and to each other. There is still much work to be done to make these people more real than just a name and some dates. It is hoped that informaton on each individual can be gathered and that a sense of knowing each person can be developed. This will take the combined efforts of everyone to accomplish.
