Hi!! I am your cousin.... My gg grandmother was Jane Lawson, her father was Rich Lawson, his father was Drury/Drewery Lawson...and according to family finder DNA ...I match Watts and Scotts...many more names. So I think I've got this pretty well figured out now.
My GG grandmother Lawson born in McMinn County, TN in 1830 married my GG Grandfather James A Carroll born in 1826 (don't know where).
I have tons of Lawson family information if you need it... would love to see how we connect.
