Robert: Yes, I was in contact with him several years ago, but I understand he passed
away, I am so sorry. I also saw J. Arthur on Dawes Ave and got a picture of the whole
family which I had reproduced and put names on the back via the computer.

Who has the box of pictures and the family bible that he showed me several years ago? Please correspond with Neal Dawes (you will find him in the messages on this board). He has been in contact with me and he lives in Lee Center. I told him to contact anybody in
Clinton to find out who has the pictures. If you can find them, I would like to borrow them and get duplicates made (of course I need to have names on them also). I would like to correspond with you more. I have done extensive work on this family. My mother was Eleanor Margaret Burns who married Walter Shulkies of Syracuse, NY. Mother's grandmother was Martha Jane who married Patrick Joseph Burns. Her parents were Charles and Jane. Talk to you later.

Hi Roberta: I tried to e-mail Neal Dawes something, but it came back, so came back into this message board and just sent him something to contact you. I will be interested in knowing how much information you have and if you can locate the pictures that J. Arthur had. I didn't know he had died until I was cruising through the Social Security Deaths area and running off Dawes. Where do you live? I am here in Western North Carolina formerly from Syracuse, NY. I plan on being in Clinton in a year or two.

See ya.

Hi Sue,
I am just getting stsrted, so I think you and Neal have more information than I do. Arthue Dawes Passed away, as you know, but I think his son James might have some pictures. I have a few pictures but not a whole lot. I will be glad to see you if you come to Clinton. I know where Charles and Jane are buried in Sunset Hill Cemetary,in Clinton, but I'm not sure where Charles Sr. and his wife are buried. I got the impression from my grandfather,Fred, that they were in Connecticut for a while when they first came to this country, But I'm not sure. I remember seeing your Great grandmother,Martha,(Aunt Matt) at our family reunions,on Dawes Avenue in Dawes Grove, (naturally) anyway,I will keep in touch. I will try to find pictures. My "E" mail address is What is yours? Roberta "Bobbie" Dawes

Hi Roberta:

Would we have met in 1972 at the last reunion I attended? I hope so. I really don't remember anybody. Neal was wondering where Charles Sr. and Mary were buried also. I took pictures of Sunset Hill but right now (my house is a work in progress) so I have no idea where they are. I wasn't there for very long. My e-mail address is: Could you get James's address for me? I would like to write him.
Thanks. Sue

My grandfather was born here in the United States. His brother, William and his sister Emma were born in Wespech-St.Mary in Cambridgeshire,England.I suppose there could be cousins in Shropshire or maybe his father, Charles had brothers in Shropshire. Charles' brothers, Thomas, James,George and his sister, Martha Dawes Pringle ended up here in the United States, But I don't know where they originally came from. It's nice to hear from you. If This helps my grandfather had 5 brothers, William, Frank, Edward, Earl, and James. He had 4 sisters, Grace Dawes VanSlyke,Emma Martin Dawes, Ida Dawes Green, and Martha Dawes Burns. I hope this helps you.
Sincerely,Roberta Dawes
