JUDGE AARON LAWSON was born January 31, 1833, in Barren County, Ky., where
he grew up, and in 1857 removed to Edmonson County and located at
Brownsville, where he remained until 1868. He then removed to Horse Cave,
Hart County, where he remained two years, after which he removed to his
present residence in Edmonson County. His father, Aaron Lawson, Sr., was
born in Hardin County, Kyk., in 1792. He was a farmer and son of David
Lawson, who was born in Kentucky, and was of Irish descent. Aaron Lawson,

seven years spent in this way he again engaged in farming, and was
