Joanna's parents were Isaac Dawe and Mary Morgan according to info supplied by my grandmother many years ago. My grandmother came from the Shearstown, Bay Roberts area of Newfoundland. Please post message here or e-mail me at

Sorry wrong family...
I know that many dawe's live in Bay Roberts and
are probably decendants of my descendants.
There are also many Mercers in Bay Roberts.

I wish you luck..
My Uncle Wilf Dawe may know... he is 85 but has a good mind
He lives in St. John's Nfld.
If you wish his address email me.

I am trying to find more info. on my ggrandmother, Elizabeth Dawe, b. 4 April, 1831, in Meavy Parish, Plymouth, Devon, England. She married George Charles and they immigrated to the U.S.A. several years before 1869, when their youngest, my grandfather was born. I have pictures of them, but not much info. re their pedigree or siblings, etc. If you have any info to share I would be interested in exchanging. Thanks! Joyce

My ancesters are from Callington Cornwall, England. They were miners and known to go "anywhere in the world to work." My ggrandfather came to the U.S. and eventually setted in Virginia. My gggrandfather was Edwin Dawe b. June 14, 1837. I have information right out of the family bible in Cornwall. Let me know if these are your Dawes.
