I been trying to piece together these Lawsons in the 1830 and 1840s Census in Putnam County, Indiana. There is a Barnes Lawson in the Putnam County,Indiana 1840 Census, age 20 to 29. Right next to him is William Lawson age 50 to 60. An then Andrew Lawson age 30 to 40. Also Barnes Lawson bought land in Washington Twp. Putnam Co. Indiana 25 May 1841.Township 12 North, Range 5 West, NW Quarter of NW Quarter , Section Seventeen. I have always felt that William Lawson was the father of Barnes and Andrew. And that William Lawson was brother to my 3GGGFather Willis Lawson born @1790 and Boswell Lawson. All of them owned land in the same area in Putnam County Indiana. There are 2 Drewy Lawson in the Putnam Co. In. 1830 Census, one age 50-59 and the other age 20 to 30. And also a Woodford Lawson who bought land in the same area, 24 April 1820. Some moved to Clay Co. In. area just a few miles away. My Willis Lawson born @1890 Va. or Ky., an died abt. 1845 Putnam Co. In. seems to be related to these families. Does anyone have information or thoughts on these Lawsons?
