I have been at a brickwall with my Mason for many 3rd great grandfather was James Mason who married his 3rd wife, my 3rd grandmother Margaret Randall (Allen) (Clark) (Mason).  I THINK I have found two possible fathers more recently.  He was born in MA (not sure where, but MA and RI was also mentioned) and I believe he died somewhere in the Brunswick, Medina, Ohio area.  I've been able to find most of his descendants with his 3 wives and yet still cannot find his parents' names with absolute certainty. He was born 1773/4 in MA Rehoboth OR Adams MA, died in Medina Co, 1850.  Was his father James Mason or Philips Mason??

I am getting more and more confused with Roswell Mason. On the LDS site it says Hannah St. John married Roswell M Mason born 1801 IN the book History of Portage County Roswell M Mason came with his father Elijah, who brought two sons 16 and 17. Well if Roswell M Mason who was born 1801 was Hannahs husband then he would be 3. None of this adds to it being the same person. THen on the LDS site it does list their children, and yes the children are correct, (my ggrandfather James Calvin Mason) Where do I find the correct Roswell, It is a brick wall enforced with steel beams.   Can anyone assist me ?  Thanks

Roswell Mason is my ggggrandfather. His son James Calvin Mason had a son , Willliam Franklin Mason , my grandfather. I am unable to find who the parents of Roswell are. He may have been born either 1820 according to his pension records from the Civil War, there is also documents that would say 1814, His wife's family record say he was born 1805. He was born in Ft. Ann Washington New York. If any one can assist me please feel free to email me or respond here. Thank YOU Mari Mason Hancock

I am researching my husband's family tree and have came to a major brickwall. My husband's greatgrandfather was Thomas W (we are thinking the W is for Wesley)Mason.  He was born 1861in Geogia and he married a Ollie Anderson in Jack Co Tx on Sept 15,1881. I find him in 1910 in Scott Co Ar and then in 1920 she is widowed in Sebastain co Ar. Looking for any connections or answers to this tree. Thank you. Rhonda

Sampson Mason & Mary Butterworth Mason are my 8th great grandparents. I am descended through their son, Isaac Hanna Myles Mason to my great grandmother, Rose Etta Mason Coleman. Interested in learning more about the family.

I descend from Masons from the Weardale area of County Durham, England. They moved to Hetton-le-Hole and eventually migrated to south eastern Ohio where my grandfather William Mason was born.

I found some more MASONs in my line...

Hello, I have traced my Haws line back to an Isabella Mason (born 1820 in Scotland, according to census records.) She was the daughter of Andrew Mason (according to "Lives of the Eminent Dead" -Moses Auge). I've found a passenger list that makes me believe she traveled to Philadelphia via the Sachem from Greenock, Scotland in May of 1822 along with a Jean, Hugh and (I believe) Martha (all Mason). I do not see an arrival for Andrew, though. (Seeing as Isabella was born in 1820 and they crossed the pond in 1822, he couldn't have traveled too long before the rest of the family, assuming he came across first.)

Isabella 1819-1909 (Haws)
Martha 1817-?
Hugh 1818-bef 1890
Lillias 1832-1892 (born in Pennsylvania)

Andrew 1784-?
Jane ?-1894
Isabel 1872-?
Elizabeth ?-1865
Hugh 1806-?

Hugh ?-bef 1865


Hugh 1700-?

Andrew 1675-?
