Hello, Janet Dauson/Dawson and John Scotland are my 4 x gt grandparents. I don't know masses of info but I found on the IGI on familysearch.org that Janet has siblings:
James Dauson christened 17/8/1754
Thomas Dauson christened 6/1/1756
William Dauson christened 12/2/1757
Margaret Dauson christened 4/10/1759
John Dauson christened 15/11/1761.

I found these on the original site for familysearch.org. Today I was having trouble replicating those findings on the new site.
Have you gone any further in your research since you first posted this query?
Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris
Welcome to RootsChat.
Janet and John are my 4x grandparents as well. I have more info on them and the extended family. I am related through their son John, who married Elizabeth Bowman.
Once you make 2 more posts, I'll be able to send you a PM with details of what I have.

Hi Charlie, I am related through their son Thomas, who married Isabel Foster, and I have been tracing the Scotland side but haven't really done anything at all on the Dauson/Dawson side. I can see that I do have John and Elizabeth and their children on my family tree . I look forward to sharing information with you.

Hi Charlie,
Can you please tell  me if you have a source for the date of death you have as I have  not had any luck searching for one.
Regards,
Chris

G'day,  This information is possibly of no value to your research, however, here it is :
A Janet Dawson married James McKenzie on 19 June 1713 in Alva, also a Janet Dawson was the daughter of James Dawson and Agnes McKenzie (b. 24 November 1851.
All the best,  David McKenzie
