Ancestor: Edward William Gibson Dawson
Update: I wrote on the image an update after visiting relatives in the UK, I discovered the image was actually my great grandfather Henry Sheperd, and not Edward William Gibson Dawson.
Edward William Gibson Dawson was my grandfather’s elder brother. I estimate he was born in 1880 and baptised on 16 May 1880 at St John the Baptist, Kentish Town, London. However, some later records conflict with an 1880 birth. At the time of his baptism, the family lived at 306 Kentish Town Road where his father (Edward Charles Dawson) was a watchmaker. His mother’s maiden name was Jane Gibson. So I like to assume that the middle name, Gibson, is in homage to her family name.
