    • The heirs of William Lawson were named in deed dated March 9, 1819 as Isham Lawson, Elijah Lawson, Stephen Lawson, William Lawson, Elisha Lason and George Lawson. Sarah Lawson was still alive at the time, and had three other children--Wyley, Hinton and Anna living with her, but they were not the owners of the land or the heirs William Lawson for the land in that transaction. But, the land was stated to be adjacent to where Sarah lived. This could suggest that Sarah was a second wife of William Lawson with children by a previous marriage.

      -------------------------------------------------

      The following item was transcribed from the Knoxville Gazette, vol. I, no. 18, 30 June 1792, (p.3).

      This list refers to the last step in establishing legal ownership of stray livestock under Chapter IX, Laws of North Carolina (1777), entitled "An Act to Prevent Abuses in taking up Stray Horses, Cattle, Hogs and Sheep, and other things herein mentioned." In each county, each stray head of livestock was to be registered in an entry book, a record open to public inspection, with its appraised value. After twelve months time, these strays could become legal property of their keepers with the payment to county officials of two-thirds of the appraised value, less expenses and the ranger's fee.

      "At a committee appointed by the worshipful court for Hawkins County, at June term, to examine the stray master's books, do find the following persons are indebted to the county the following sums, viz."
