My name is Betty H ayden researching group oldnate. You don't disturb graves, to get Sudies DNA. you get two or three you are sure related to her, and then compare the results. I gathered one or two and helped pay for them, to find out if we were true decendants of old Drewery. That had to be all male , straight line Lawson, coming forward. Drewery is my 4th gr. Grandfather
His son Nathan Lawson and Leannah his mom, my 3rd. Gr. their
son Wm. M. my g.g. his daughter Rachel is my g. Grandmother, grandmother to my mom. I am extreamly interested in the Grandmother Sudie Hawk. Please tell me all you know. I was very happy to have shared two pictures my mom had. Of her family, one has several older ladies. one who is supposed to be her N.A. Grandma. No names, I could cry. lol Do you have anything , of Sudie , picture, anything.
Who made the statement the Lawsons were Scotch and Cherokee. ? That is my understanding also. This line of mine is straight down to Rachel Lawson who marr. Andy Hatfield in Tn. 1850. ( yes mom grew up a Hatfield in Indiana ) Thanks so much. I am glad to shre anything I have gathered. Betty Hayden I did Ancestry DNA. also.
