Charles Dawson (d. 1840) was a lawyer who lived in Collinsport in 1840. He was also a devoted follower of Judah Zachery. His great-grandfather was one of Judah's followers during Judah's actual life in the late 17th century.
Charles Dawson was responsible for returning the Head of Judah Zachery to Gerard Stiles after Gerard tossed over the edge of Widow's Hill in an attempt to end his grip on him (1141). With Charles' help, the Head was able to serve a long-time possession of Gerard (1142). He also lead the prosecution against Quentin Collins and Desmond Collins in their trial for witchcraft (1165). He was eventually killed by Valerie Collins (1196).
