Is this Edward the son of Emma Andress Lawson? I don’t think so. Edward R. Lawson wasn’t born until about 1901. If he was born at the time of this publication he would have been an infant and probably identified as the son of Emma who was still living. Did Hampton and Eliza have a son Edward? If so, he is not identified in other records, except possibly John‘s 1909 obituary. The obituary mentions as a survivor John’s brother Edward. This may or may not have been a reference to Edward R. Lawson. By 1909 Edward R. Lawson was living with his grandparents, his mother Emma having died in 1904. Notice that on the 1900 census Eliza states that she was the mother of seven children and that six were yet living. On the 1910 census she states that four children are yet living. Three of the four are obviously William, Clarence, and Roy. Is the fourth Edward? I recall my grandfather telling me that he considered Ed Lawson an uncle; that Edward was raised as a sibling of William, Clarence, and Roy. If there is an Edward Andress, son of Hampton and Eliza, I don‘t know what became of him.)
