Hi, just wondering if you got any further with this query about Josiah Dawes from Kent. I agree with comments below - first wife and mother of children was Elizabeth, second wife Mary. Josiah was born about 1796 but can't find any record. I found a marriage for Josiah Wise Dawes and Elizabeth Turmenger in 1824. I also found a christening for Elizabeth Turmenger in 1815 but she would only be about 9, unless born sometime before that. Name Turmenger seems very unusual, can't find much on that at all.
