Although Rosalind V. Dawn was born in Georgetown, Tennessee, the settlement of Dawnville, GA just across the Georgia border is named after her family. A 10 Dec 1975 article in the Citizen-News, Dalton, GA newspaper indicates that the old settlement of Dawnville, located in the northwestern corner of Georgia, was named for the Dawn Family. It is located northeast of Dalton, GA between Caohulla Creek and the Conasauga River on the wagon road used for commerce and travel connecting Dalton and the mountains to the north.

Rosalind Virginia Dawn married Charles Thomas Farrar on 03 Jul 1873 during his employment at a sawmill owned by his cousin, William Baker Farrar, in Whitfield Co., GA.

In 1884 she and her family began to migrate further southward with stops in Cedartown, GA (1884) and Tallapoosa, GA (1885). Each stop in their migration was celebrated by births of more children. She and her growing family arrived in Woodlawn, AL (later to become part of Birmingham) between 1885 and 1888.

She lived in Birmingham, AL from 1885 until 1933 and like many urban women of her era she was a housewife with a large family.

She was the sister of Dr. Ferdinand Finny Dawn of Nashville, TN. See Find a Grave Memorial #109546216.

Besides the children listed below, these two cannot be accounted for:
1) Harriet Farrar b. 1871 GA
2) Thomas Farrar b. 1878 GA
