Dawson, Alfred was born in England, April 18, 1833, and came to America in 1855.

He shipped five years ago over 63,000 barrels of apples, pears and quinces. Mr. Dawson's first wife was Maria Pfeifer, who died two years ago. His second wife is Mary Knapp. Mr. Dawson is one of the substantial men of Medina, and is much respected by all classes.
