I only had the notes from the 1870 census, when Charles was a child (age 16). I went ahead and started searching for you. Here is what I found - Leonard E. Dawn was born 10/1/1878 in Georgia to Charles H. Dawn and Lovinia Elvira Tinsley. Leonard was married to Ora Cooper. They were married in Spalding, GA. You can find Leonard (spelling Lenard) and Ora in the 1900 census- GA. Birth on the census states Lenard was born in South Carolina. The GA info was obtained from the Mormon church records. I would tend to believe them more than the census. Head of Household in the 1900 census is Ora's mother L. Ella Cooper. I did not research the Cooper's. You can also find Lenard Edward Dawn under the WWI draft records for 1917-1918. A couple of interesting notes made: 1930 E.L. Dawn, wife Ollie and one of their daughters named Ora (most likely after her grandmother - unusual name). This E.L. listed was born abt 1900. This could be one of Lenard's sons. Also, In my old notes there is another Leonard Dawn born abt 1827. His father was Levi Dawn and Mary Ann DAy. Levi was born 8/7/1804. His other children were Elizabeth A., Rufus S. Edward P. and Julia M. Many families in that time period would name their children after their brothers, sisters, parents, etc. Charles H father was Edward F. Dawn born abt 1803. Gut tells me that Edward F. and Levi could have been brothers or some close relation (Edward and Leonard names are repeated for each of their families). Good luck and let me know if I help. Jen
