BMDB data

     John Daw was born cir. Oct 1798 Par. of Whitchurch, DEV, ENG.1 He was baptized on 26 Oct 1798 Par. of Whitchurch, DEV; entry reads: John son of Isaac and Sarah Daw Octr 26th.1
     Unless anyone can find any other Isaac and Sarah DAW(E) family that "fits" I believe this John belongs to this Isaac and Sarah.
I can't find any other families of these names, nor any other baptisms in Whitchurch.
The baptism dates of Isaac and Sarah's Lamerton born children either side of this John don't negate this identification: 31 Mar 1797, 28 Oct 1798 and 15 Dec 1800.

How did I find him? In researching the family of John DAW and Mary FRIEND because of a dna match between myself (Lorna) a descendant of Isaac & Sarah's son Isaac, and a descendant of their son Thomas.
This blog post refers.
As you can see not all the dots have been fully confirmed, but regardless, it did lead to the finding of this John.2

All the other info

     John Daw baptized Whitchurch 1798 to Isaac and Sarah DAWE, and John Daw marrying Mary FRIEND and having a son Isaac Friend DAW in Oct 1798 are possibly the same person, this bog post refers.
I would love to hear from any descendants of John and Mary that may be able to confirm this identification.2

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
