BMDB data

     John Daw was born say 1720 ?DEV, ENG.
     John Daw married Sarah Moore on 26 Nov 1744 North Lew, DEV, ENG.2
     John Daw died in Aug 1778 North Lew, DEV.3 He was buried on 10 Aug 1778 Churchyard, North Lew, DEV, ENG, Entry simply shows "John Daw August 10th."3,4
     John and Sarah's son Isaac, baptised 1769 has been tentatively identified as the miller Isaac DAWE who married Sarah SMITH.
Age about right, but Black Torrington isn't exactly an area that features in the descendants of Isaac and Sarah.
The Lamerton Parish Registers have a few entries of potential candidates around the right time, but absolutely no identifying characteristics to help much.

Several trees however also identify this John, married to Sarah MOORE, as the John born 1742 to Joseph DAWE and Elizabeth CROSSMAN.
Which would make it rather hard for him to have married Sarah MOORE in 1744.5
