Obituary
Dr. Benoni Dawson, son of Robert Doyne and Sarah N. C. Dawson. Dr. Benoni Dawson died on Jan. 11, 1851, after a painful illness of pneumonia of one week. In the death of this gentleman, the community has sustained a serious loss. In all the relations of his life, as husband, as parent, and friend, he discharged his duties most faithfully. The poor he never slighted in the ministrations of his profession. He has left a widow, Sarah Newton Jones, and a large family of children and a numerous circle of relatives and friends to mourn their sad bereavement. But they will not mourn as those without hope, for in life the duties of a devoted Christian were faithfully observed and practiced by him. Dr. Benoni Dawson was the father of Mrs. Benoni Allnutt.
