Some researchers in our family speculate it might be Travis; however, this has not been proven. Numerous researchers have posted that the wife of William Lawson, Scottish Rebel was Jane Banks. That is without a doubt, incorrect.



    Marriage 1 WILLIAM LAWSON b: 26 JUN 1731 in Scotland- Montrose?
    • Married: BEF. 1761 in probably North Carolina
    • Note:
      As of 2011, the actual marriage record of THIS William and Rebecca has still not been located. The marriage more than likely occurred in NC where we know William lived at one time. Exactly where he lived in NC still needs proven.

      For clarification pertaining to other data seen online, the following marriage pertains to ANOTHER William Lawson, the one that did marry Jane Banks, not to William Lawson of Scott Co, Virginia who married Rebecca, maiden name unknown:
