I was recently sent a copy of the URL to the article representing Anthony Lawson. I am a descendant of his family, formerly lived in Lawson Branch, Stollings, son of James O. “Jack” Lawson and Elizabeth A. Ware Lawson.
My father’s dad and mother, Leonard and Olivia Lawson, originally built homes in Lawson Branch, also formerly lived on Stratton St. close to the old Logan High School. They operated a small mercantile store located next to one of their old homes which was torn down to make way for development of the new by-pass construction to Man.
After enlisting in Air Force in 1967, post 1966 graduation, I only returned to Stollings to visit family until they moved to the Ashland, Ky., area. I still visit Logan/Stollings from time to time, but those visits are more infrequent as years have passed.
I am retired now, married to and living with Sandra Sue Cutlip Lawson, my old high school sweetheart.
