While following my BROOKS line from Wythe Co., Virginia up to Knox Co., Indiana, I've found connections with the described families:

Thomas DAYSON, b:1783 ENGLAND married Mary A. (UNKNOWN), b:1788 ENGLAND. The 1850 Knox Co., IND. census notes the following children:

John, b:1820 - d:1863
Thomas, Jr., b:1825/26 married: Catherine MARKS
Elizabeth, b:1829
James, b:1831 - d:1871

Catherine MARKS, b:1828, IND. was the daughter of Truman E. MARKS, b:1800, NY. and Elizabeth PICKEL, b:1794, VA.
Thomas DAYSON, Jr. married Catherine MARKS in 1850/51. The 1860 Knox Co., Ind. census notes household members:

Truman MARKS 60 m Farmer b: NY 1800
Elizabeth (PICKEL)66 f b: VA 1794
Thomas DAYSON 35 m Farmer b: IND 1825/26
Catherine (MARKS) 32 f b: IND 1828
Thomas M. DAYSON 8 m b: IND 1852
Candace J. DAYSON 5 f b: IND 1855/56
Truman M. DAYSON 1 m b: IND 1859/60

The 1880, Vincennes, Knox Co., IN., census shows Thomas DAYSON has a new wife, Clemini UNKNOWN, b:1854, IL.
[I am unsure what happened to Catherine MARKS-DAYSON, but presume her deceased.]

The 1880, Palmyra, Knox Co., IN. census notes the following families: [NOTE change in spelling from DAYSON to DASON.]

Thomas M. DASON, b:1852, the son of Thomas DAYSON and Catherine MARKS, married: Minerva (UNKNOWN)

Thomas M. DASON, SELF b:1853, IN.
Minerva (UNKNOWN), WIFE b:1853, IN.
Edward DASON, SON b:1876, IN.
Lewey Ellis DASON, SON b:1879, IN.
James D. SECREST, OTHER, b:1853, IN.

Truman DASON, SELF, b:1859/60, IN.
Josie DASON, SISTER, b:1855/56, IN.
Eunice DASON, SISTER, b:1864, IN.
Ulysses DASON, BROTHER, b:1861, IN.
