We have a Cawthon family of Dabney Euell Cawthon and Mary Magdalene Scrimager Kentucky to Missouri to Arkansas. Do you know of a connection? We had a Scott Cawthon who went to Texas and died there in 1943. We are looking for descendants.
Thanks in Advance,
Larry Willis

Martin B. was son of David, who was son of John, who was son of Charles, per Jean Rodwicks's "Cothern Clan" prelim update, dated 4-9-2001. David had younger brother William, my gggrandfather. You may already have all this info but I am late on the scene of tree research and just now found your messages.

Dabney Euell Cawthon is my great great grandfather. Most of the Cawthon's I am familiar with live in Kansas City, MO, Omaha, NE, and on the native American reservation in Oklahoma. My grandfather was Clyde Vernon Cawthon. There is some info available on www.familysearch.org. Good luck with your search.

I am a decendant of Dabney and Mary Magdeline Scrimager thru their son Wiley Newt, and his son Barto Sr. and then Barto Jr. I have some info on their wives, but would like ancestry of Nancy Elliott and Jane Gates if you have it or know someone who does. Thanks.

In my files I have a Scott E Cawthon, son of Dabney and Mary Cawthon, who born 17 May 1878 in Edmonton, Metcalfe, Kentucky, USA and died 27 Dec 1943. I'm assuming this is this correct Scott; however this is the only information I have on him.

Martin Bird was Indian, his dad was Redbird and was murdered for unknown reasons. The Cawthon family took in Martin Bird and raised him. Either him or Dabney (think it was Dabney) moved to Mizzou to hide out from agents hunting indians to send to OK reservations, when all done, Dabney moved to Arkansas, I have his ox yoke in my garage that pulled his wagon to Arkansas (wife hates it) and his and her pictures (charcoal drawings/wife says they are creepy) at my home. Not sure this answered any of your questions. If you want a pic of the pics, just e-mail me.

Hello, I am helping a friend research her family roots. Her grandfather was also Clyde Vernon Cawthon. Her was Thelma Iona Cawthon.

I know this is an older post, and a lot of research has been done in the meantime. Someone has even put together a book about the Cawthon family. I am wondering if anyone has any documentation about Martin Bird Cawthon. Is there any proof that he was adopted, and that he was an Indian.

Thanks. Kathy

Our spelling is Cawthon but so many could not read or write, there are many spellings but did all originate from Kentucky. There was a shooting of a woman and her lover (both lived) and part of the family headed to Arkansas. A Cawthon also hit a guy in the head with a rock in an election line and I believe that group moved to Fort Worth, TX. I may have those backwards. If you ask around Kentucky, you can probably hear about the shooting as people still remembered that when my Grand Parents went to Kentucky in the 70's. It was around the Cawthon Cemetary where you can see many spellings of the name. I will try to post a pic of the yoke later. Let my know if you find anyone who remembers stories about the shooting.
