Re: Thomas Andrew Dawes, brewer from Lachine, Quebec

2017-08-05 17:14:08Z

Hi Kathy
I have been doing a little checking on the web today as I found a small wooden box which my late Mother used to keep her sewing needles in. On the cover of the box is a small plaque with the name N.J. Dawes.

My grandfather Bennett also was a chauffeur to the Dawes family when they lived on Pine Avenue. I guess this would be in the 1940s or 1950s up until the time their house was sold and demolished and a school erected on the site.

I wonder if the Lachine Museum would be interested in this box or maybe someone on Kijiji

Does anyone have and information on any Dawes women married to a Parker..I have a friend looking for his birth father and his DNA test show that his father was a Parker and that his father had a Dawes ancestor. most of his matches lived in the Rocky Mount area in North Carolina. he is also connected to the Langley and Joyner families.

I have just discovered this community. I am researching the life of Doris Hedges, a Canadian author who was the daughter of William O. Ryde and Edith Sarah Dawes. Doris was born in Lachine in 1896 and was no doubt surrounded by the Dawes family. Her grandfather was James Pawley Dawes II. Doris (Ryde) married Geoffrey P. Hedges. I am interested in finding out whether anyone has any records of Doris or her involvement with the Dawes family. She died without children, so it is very hard to track down information.

Re: Looking for information on Susannah Dawes and Tirey Jackson

2016-09-06 20:07:27Z

Thank you for the response. They were my great, great, great, great grandparents. Do you happen to specifically know anything about Suki's parents or family? Or Tireys?

Re: Looking for information on Susannah Dawes and Tirey Jackson

2016-09-06 17:06:22Z

Tirey and Susanna Dawes Jackson were my great, great, great grandparents. The land they had on Underwood Mountain was passed down to my mother, and it is where I was brought up. Suki did operate a trading post on the banks of Smith Creek, and she is buried nearby. Her grave was marked only by several small stones until the early 2000's when my mother and several other cousins placed an engraved tombstone at the site. Tirey was captured ( I have always been told that he was kidnapped by renegade Chickasaws) and murdered. The whereabouts of his remains are unknown.

Looking for information on Susannah Dawes and Tirey Jackson

2016-01-12 20:18:11Z

I have hit a road block on these two. The only info I can find is that they were married in Hall Co, GA on July 31, 1829. I do know that they lived in Colbert County, AL on Underwood Mountain and are buried there. Susanna was also called Suki. It is said that she had a trading post also. Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Thomas Andrew Dawes, brewer from Lachine, Quebec

2014-03-18 23:26:24Z

Well, I am not a Dawes but my grandfather was the family chauffeur in the 20s and 30s. I have many photos of him with the beautiful cars and with the other household staff. One of his favourite stories involved a young Christopher Plummer who, while playing on the Dawes estate one day with a similarly aged boy (12 or so) fell out of a tree and broke his arm. My grandfather drove him to the hospital and, every time The Sound of Music came on TV, someone would recall that bit of family lore. :D

Dorothy Dawes Young Mann 1924-2014 - Dawes Arboretum - Ohio

2014-01-09 15:04:07Z

Granville - Dorothy Dawes Young was born June 9, 1924 in Wilmington, Delaware to Col. David Harold Young and Dorothy Dawes. The family then moved to Bexley, Ohio where Dorothy attended school graduating from Bexley High School, Bexley, Ohio in 1941. She attended Florida State College For Women (now Florida State) in Tallahassee FL graduating in 1945 with a major in History. It was shortly after that in Evanston, Illinois that she met on a blind date, the love of her life, Richard Walter Mann, a decorated Naval Officer and pilot. They were married July 20, 1946 in Evanston Illinois. In their 61 years together Dorothy and Richard lived a full and rich life, travelling all over the world, visiting friends and family, and making many more friends along the way. Their numerous adventurous bicycle trips to various locations in the United States and England were a great source of enjoyment to them. Dorothy joined the Dawes Arboretum Board of Trustees in 1958 and served as Chairwoman from 1975-1982. Her lifelong love of Daweswood and nature began in her earliest years as she spent much time with her grandparents and the founders, Beman and Bertie Dawes. After her retirement from the board she continued as Honorary Trustee, contributing her talents and love of plants as well as her historical knowledge of the Dawes family up to the very end of her life. She, most recently, was very involved in Milo Arts of Columbus OH, contributing her support.Dorothy's sense of adventure and curiosity was evident to all who met her. She genuinely enjoyed people and was very curious and interested in their lives and thoughts. She was a great example of these numerous rich qualities to her three children, her eleven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, as well as a few very close friends she informally "adopted" as family. Dorothy was also a faithful member of the First Presbyterian Church in Granville Ohio for over 50 years.Her husband, Richard Walter Mann, preceded her in death in 2007. She is survived by her three children, Richard W Mann Jr. of Columbus OH, David H Mann of Saltillo Mexico, Dorothy Mann Steciw (husband, Roman) of High Point NC. Also, grandchildren Luke Mann of AZ, Peter Mann of FL, David Mann Jr. of Uganda, Dustin Mann of MI, Stephen Steciw of WA, Sally Steciw of OH, Nate Mann (Amy) of GA, Elsa Mann (Josh) of KY, Paul Steciw (Caitie) of TN, Rebecca Steciw of GA, and Dorothy Mann of Mexico.

Hi, just wondering if you got any further with this query about Josiah Dawes from Kent. I agree with comments below - first wife and mother of children was Elizabeth, second wife Mary. Josiah was born about 1796 but can't find any record. I found a marriage for Josiah Wise Dawes and Elizabeth Turmenger in 1824. I also found a christening for Elizabeth Turmenger in 1815 but she would only be about 9, unless born sometime before that. Name Turmenger seems very unusual, can't find much on that at all.

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

2012-02-15 15:21:18Z

Hello Pat. Not sure if I shared this info with you or not, so I thought I would post here. According to the 1900 census Fannie was born in 1881 in New York. Father unknown, mother born in New York. She was adopted by the Slones prior to 1900. I do not find that the Slones had any children of their own. Fannie and Seymour were married about 1903. Robert was born in 1904. Josephine was born in 1907. According to the 1910 census Fannie was committed to the Utica State Hospital for the Mentally Insane, under the name of Fannie Greene, married. The 1920 census lists a Belle Greene at the Newark State School, single. This school was for the mentally handicapped, I am assuming the intent was to "teach". But the 1930 census lists Fannie Greene back at the Utica State Hospital, divorced. Since Seymour married Dorcas Irene Dow Stewart around 1923 in Michigan it is safe to assume that he divorced Fannie around 1920. Did your mother ever indicate that she visited her mother? Any pictures in your archives that include Fannie? As I find more info I will post for you. You may want to communicate via my email - My cell phone is 1-248-882-2743. Also, would you like info on the Greene side of the family? We have info on them going back to the 1700's in England. The oldest member is Thomas De Greene. He rode with William the Conqueror. Very interesting. And since Seymour's oldest brother (my great-grandfather) had 7 children, you have a bunch of cousins. In fact the youngest of the 7 is still living, Donald Greene, age 91 in LA, California. He would be your mother's first cousin. Elizabeth

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

2012-02-14 23:37:23Z

Hi Jane,
Would this have been 1951? If so, you are right, but I don't remember you, I remember a boy, possibly your brother, who was 5 or 6 yrs older than me. It was at a farm; we brought the cows in to the barn and took the milk to the dairy, and that is about all I remember. I hope this is the right time and place for that visit you remember. Uncle Bob Slone and Grandpa Greene were father and son; the family resemblance was striking. My wife and I with our young 9-month son, went to visit them in Syracuse in 1967. Uncle Bob and Grandpa Greene came to Michigan and we took them to Marine City to see Mark's father for Thanksgiving in 1965. I think Grandpa Greene said he was staying with someone named Greene in Detroit, but I don't know who that Greene was, but I think it was a nephew.


Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

2012-02-14 23:35:32Z

Hi Mark,
Yes that is probably about the right time. The farm you remember was the Brandis farm. Bill Brandis the father was my Mom's cousin. His mother was Alice Greene Brandis, my Grandpa's sister. The boy you probably remember was the adopted son of Liz & Bill Brandis. We lived just a few houses down from them. I can remember going there for dinner with lots of people being there. My Mom seemed to be in seventh heaven!

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

2012-02-14 23:26:32Z

Hi! It is nice to actually find someone on my Mom's side of the family. I am the youngest of Josephine's daughters. I have been unable to find any information on Fannie Belle. I wrote to the hospital in Utica, NY trying to find some info but never heard from them. I have one sister left in NY state but she is 75 now so I really don't want to send her on a wild goose chase! I do know that Mom said her birth mother was adopted by the Sloans, the same people adopted Uncle Bob. He was pretty much there to take care of them etc. They wanted nothing to do with my Mom as she was just born. Grandpa Greene's parents raised her. I was told that Fannie Belle was in Marcy State for years after giving birth to my Mom. Mom was sixteen when Grandma & Grandpa Greene were married.

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

Hello. So excited to "meet" you. I believe it was my mother and Grandparents that came to visit you in New York. At any rate, it is still a great pleasure to speak with you. Since my last post I have found that the information given to me by my Grandmother before she passed was incorrect. I was always under the impression that your Great-Grandmother, Fannie Bell Slone Greene, died with Josephine was a toddler. Also, that Josephine was an only child. Imagine my surprise to find that Josephine had an older brother, Robert, and Fannie was alive as of the 1920 census. My Grandmother's "baby" brother, Donald, is still alive, age 19, living in LA, California. I have sent a message to his daughter, Jill, to see if he remembers when Uncle Seymour lived with them in Detroit. Also to see if he remembers his second wife, Irene Stewart. I found that Fannie was adopted by the Slones. Do you have any information on this? So happy to have met you and your family. xoxo HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

I'm attempting to trace Alfrred J. Dawes who was supposed to be related to William Dawes. There is an organization that has a lot of Dawes information: They might offer some information.

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

2012-02-13 15:18:49Z

Hello Pat. Sorry this has taken so long to respond. I got distracted. I remember my grandmother, Ruth Greene Stecker, speaking so highly of your grandmother. In the 80's I took Grandma to Long Island so she could attend the wedding of her nephew, the son of Donald Seymour Greene, thus another cousin to you. On the way back to Michigan we stopped by Josephine's place and our grandmothers were able to spend the day together. Your grandfather lived with my great-grandfather while he was in Detroit. Grandma always spoke so highly of him. But I do not find any record that Irene lived with him. The census records indicate he was married, so I should go back and look again to see if Irene is listed under the Dow or Stewart name. I am in contact with one of Irene's grandsons, I will keep you informed as to what he says. You indicated that your Grandfather divorced Fannie. Can you tell me which state this was in, New York or Illinois? Also, do you know what Fannie's maiden name was? We have it as Sloan (Slone), but this would not make sense since she had a son, Robert Sloan who was older than your Grandmother. According to the genealogy records that were kept by my great grandfather, Robert Greene, Josephine was the only child of Seymour. He no other children with Fannie, and no children with Irene. Any info you can share is greatly appreciated, and we will share anything from this end to help plug the holes. Thanks again.

Re: Charles Dawes and Jane Wesseldine

Hello Mark. I am so happy to hear from you. My sister and I have been trying to research Uncle Seymour (Martin Seymour Greene) and his wives, but have not been able to break through the walls very successfully. This is what we know. Uncle Semour married Fannie Sloan (Slone?). They had a daughter Josephine. I understand Fannie had a son, Robert, but Uncle Seymour is not his birth father. So Uncle Seymour must have been Fannie's second husband, not her first as we previously thought. In fact, this is the first I have heard that Josephine was NOT an only child as previously thought. We also know that Irene was Uncle Seymour's second wife, but have not been able to locate any information on her whatsoever. We found her name listed on a genealogy sheet kept by my great-grandfather, and Uncle Seymour's eldest brother, Robert Durward Greene. So anything you can share will be greatly, and I mean greatly, appreciated. Also, if there is anything that you would like from our end we are more than happy to share. My email address is Thanks much.
