I am also looking for Lawson's of Summerton SC. My husband is Leo Lawson Jr. His father is also Leo Lawson Sr. of Summerton, I'm looking for any information on His father Louis Lawson whom I believe was born about 1914. I have found a 1940 Census where he lived in Friendship township with his wife Corine Gibson, They had 3 children Leo, Willie Henry and Lola Mae. I can't place him during any other time. I know he preceded his wife in death. maybe around 1972? His wife Corine died in 2000. I was told that Louis was raised by his uncle and aunt( Kings) when his mother died young. His siblings were sent to different relatives. His father then remarried and had another family. would appreciate any info anyone has on this line of Lawsons.
