Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep., 1818
Clark County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Mar. 3, 1896
Callaway County
Missouri, USA

Born in Clark County, Kentucky, the 11th child and the daughter of Christopher and Lydia Bridwel Dawson. She was a full Cherokee of the Cawtabra Tribe.

The Dawson family moved with a group of settlers to the newly formed Kentucky around 1785 from Stafford County, Virginia using the newly opened by Daniel Boone, the Cumberland Trail. The Boone family figurers prominently in the opening of the route to Kentucky and in the routes followed to and opening of Missouri.

Sythi was married to Alfred D. Fisher in Clark County, Kentucky on June 1833. Alfred D. and Sythi migrate to Nine Mile Prairie, Callaway County, Missouri, between 1840 and 1845 and two children George and Amanda, who were born in Kentucky. Three more children were born in Missouri-Mary, Charles Henry and Martha Ellen-twins.

Sythi's brothers (Dawson) and a sister, Dawson Newkirk move with them to Callaway County.

The last record of George William Fisher, Sytha and Albert's eldest son, was in 1860. No record of Mary found at this time.

Albert was killed in Kansas or in the Gold Fields out west, probably by Indians. The last record of Albert was in the 1850 census of Callaway County.

Sythi acquired a land grant in Nine Mile Prairie in 1853 and lived the rest of her life in Callaway County.

Died in Callaway Co, Mo and buried at Ebenezer, about 5 miles west of Fulton beside one daughter, Amanda Fisher ? Bittner, no record of either of Amanda's husbands burial ground, and one son, Charles Henry Fisher and his wife, Martha Jane (Boggess). Martha Ellen and her husband, Thomas Benton Williams, are buried in Hillcrest Cemetery in Fulton.

She was survived by her children, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In 1880 Sitha was living with Columbus and Missouri Snell in Calwood. Florence Snell, 1 year old child, was also living in the residence.
Sytha has been linked on the Census's to Albert, Henry and Alfred. Maybe just bad handwriting or he my have kept changing his first name.

"But oh, beyond the shadowing scene
Where all is bright and fair
We know so well these dear old hands.
Will palms of victory bear crystal streams this endless year
Flow over golden sands and where the old grow young again,
We will clasp our Mothers hands."
Note: Had two other children-Mary and George that it is not known where they are buried. Husband, Albert or Alfred went to the Gold Fields out west and was never heard from again.
