** Hello
Hannah Dawson was my (Devon Dawson) GGG-Grandmother and the line is one I have been working on for many years. Below the entry for her grave is one for E. Dawson and J. J. Dawson that as suggested was for that of Tombstone inscribers. In the 1850 Census for Limestone County, Hannah Dawson's sons (Ezekiel Dawson Jr - age 27, Ruben T. Dawson - age 20, Tomas L. Dawson - age 16) were all listed as "stonecutters". I just wanted to mention, I think that the assumption they inscribed tombstones is accurate. Thanks for putting this all online.
