Introduction 

The inspiration and desire to make this research in Fam- 
ily History was born in the heart and mind of the author in 
the days of his childhood, from the story frequently told him 
by an aged grandparent on maternal side. This was the story 
of their escape late in the year 1784 from an Indian raid, in 
a canoe across the Susquehanna River, when, looking back, 
they saw their new and humble home in the far-famed Wyom- 
ing Valley, burned with all its contents by the Indians. The 
same desire all through life to find the spot where this early 
home in Luzerne County stood, was at length rewarded a 
few years since, and the author stood on the heap of stones, 
which remain to this day undisturbed for more than a cen- 
tury, to mark the spot, and h^nd down to memory the story of 
the cruelty of the wily and savage foe of those early days, and 
of the hardships endured by these hardy and brave pioneers, 
among whom were the great-grandsire of the author, viz., 
Richard Dodson, and his two brothers, John and Samuel, 
who settled in Luzerne County about the close of the War 
of the Revolution. It is the purpose of the author to place 
a tablet to mark the site of that early home. 

Genealogical research naturally leads backward from a 
known and given ancestor in family history, to the earliest 
source of name and lineage, and thence forward mid the 
growing and wide-spreading branches of the Tree, to the 
latest living generation of descendants, even though it re- 
quires every letter in the alphabet to furnish initials for their 
surnames. 

The lajLidable purpose of such research should ever be, not 
merely for Family pride, but the sincere desire to preserve 
both for living and future generations, names and deeds, ex- 
amples worthy of emulation in the making of a country's his- 
tory in the day in which they lived. 

The field of this research has been very large both in Eng-

land and in this country — requiring several years on the part 
of the author personally, and also professional work of expert 
genealogists. The information thus obtained has been by an 
examination of a vast amount of material, viz., church and 
parish records, colonial records, old family Bibles, tomb- 
stones, old letters, wills, deeds, land warrants, surveys, field 
notes of early surveyors, tax lists, signatures, &c., besides 
data from a collection of unindexed papers of records, of 
Bucks, Chester and Northampton Counties, — in all, about one 
hundred and fifty volumes, preserved in the Historical So- 
ciety Library of Pennsylvania, in the Maryland Historical 
Library in Baltimore, and Archives in Annapolis. Also rec- 
ords of Friends' meetings in England, New Jersey and Penn- 
sylvania, Burke's Peerages, Fairbairn's Crests and Coats of 
Arms, and Luttrell's Annals of loo Years. 

The earliest records known of the Dodson name in this 
country are as follows : 

1st. Colonial Annals of Virginia mention "Dodson's 
Plantation" in 1632. 

2nd. Dean's History of Scituate, Massachusetts, records 
the name of Anthony Dodson and descendants from 1650 to 
1705 (page 263). 

3rd, Maryland Colonial Records, in the old State House 
at Annapolis, mention the arrival there of a John Dodson in 
1656, followed later by a son John and a daughter Katharine. 
These Johns settled in Calvert and Charles Counties. Their 
wills are also of record there in 1733 and later. 

4th. The arrival of Dodsons in 1677 at the New 
Quaker settlement of Burlington, New Jersey. 

Following this 4th statement a preliminary reference to 
the Colonial History of the early settlement of New Jersey is 
both important and appropriate in this introduction to the 
Genealogy of the Pennsylvania and Maryland Dodson 
Branches, with which they were first identified, and whence 
they departed for other lands and homes. 

In the settlement of New Jersey, and because of the 
various and serious disputes as to lines and boundaries between 
the conflicting grants, grantees and lessees, William Penn was 
appointed as arbitrator, he himself becoming finally proprie- 
tor by purchase and agreement with four other Masters of 

4

West New Jersey, then so called. These five Proprietors in 
1676 appointed three Commissioners — Penn, as chief or head, 
being already in New Jersey — to settle said disputes, purchase 
additional lands from the 'Indians, lay out a town, which was 
first called New Beverly, later Burlington — and establish a 
government. Penn drew up a constitution of very liberal 
principles, which he called "Concessions," and which he de- 
scribed in brief as follows : "That the ages might under- 
stand their liberty as men and Christians, that they may not 
be brought in bondage, but by their own consent, for we put 
the power in the people." 

This early declaration of "Liberty and Independence," 
made by Penn a century earlier than the one which freed the 
Colonies from the Mother Country and made this Nation, 
naturally attracted large numbers of the persecuted Quakers 
of England to New Jersey, aided and also encouraged by 
Penn. 

Among these Quaker colonists in 1677, were John, 
Thomas and Mary Dodson, brothers and a sister, in company 
with the Stacys, Buntings and Boyes. — (Burlington Records.) 

From this given and starting point our research begins. 

This volume will contain the History and Genealogy, 
chronologically arranged, beginning with the Parent family 
of the Dodson Jersey colonists, of Knaresborough, Yorkshire, 
England. 

John, the older brother, left Burlington, crossed over into 
Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and settled there about the time 
Penn returned from England in 1682 with his grant as Pro- 
prietor of Pennsylvania, and his first colony of settlers 
ihen^iji. 

Thomas also left Burlington some time after 1700, went 
down into Maryland and settled in Talbot County, on the 
eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, where many of his de- 
scendants still remain, while also a long line of descendants, 
thro' his son John, who settled in Virginia about 1725, are 
found there and in North Carolina. John, Sn, thus became 
the head of the Pennsylvania Branch, and Thomas of the 
Maryland and one Virginia Branch. 

In addition to this line from a common English ancestor, 
and during the general and widely extended research thereof 
throughout our country, many other Dodsons and their de- 
scendants have been found, notably two other Maryland lines

of English descent, also various other branches from early 
Virginia colonists. One in particular has been widely extend- 
ed — first to Kentucky and Tennessee (latter part of 1700 and 
early part of 1800) — and thence to Ohio, Indiana and Mis- 
souri and further south, all evidently from the same early Vir- 
ginia ancestor, probably the 1632 possessor of "Dodson Plan- 
tation." Around these so much of interest is centered, that 
they will follow in the order of records and traditions re- 
ceived. 

These all must have been from one original English 
source, — as English Records mention the name in the thir- 
teenth and fourteenth centuries. 

The "Domesday Book," of earliest English records of 
lands, owners and lessees, of Hertfordshire, gives the name of 
**Dode," and a Son "Alcynius Dodesone, tenant-in-chief." 
From this early English source the name Dodson very easily 
<ind naturally follows. The name therefore may be either 
Celtic or Anglo-Saxon, as it is difficult to determine from this 
earliest record.

ENGLISH ANCESTRY 

OF 

Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland Branches 

Knaresborough, Yorkshire, England. 



1 Daniel and Susanne Dodson. 

Children. 

2 Gil: John Dodson, b. March, 1655. 

3 Susanne, b. abt. 1657. 

4 David, b. abt. 1659. 

5 Dorothy, b. abt. 1661. 

6 Mary, b. November 17th, 1664. 

7 William, b. abt. 1666. 

8 Thomas, b. October 19th, 1669. 

The Burlington Records, New Jersey, furnished the names 
of the three who came in 1677 with other Quaker settlers to 
their new settlement, and stated Yorkshire as the place of 
their Etiglish home. This fact gave the clue for research 
in England. The fact that they were Quakers limited the 
search somewhat to the Society of Friends, and their various 
places of meeting, as well as to the Parish Records of the 
English Church in the vicinity of Friends' meetings. It is 
worthy of note that the only Dodson names, found by expert 
research in any Friends' Meeting Records, were in this one 
of Knaresborough ; and while Dodson names were found in 
the Parish Records, both before and after the time of this 
particular family, none of the above names were found in them. 
The Friends record as given was beautifully kept and well pre- 
served, and it is a matter of regret that the expert searcher 
was so rejoiced to find the names of the New Jersey three, 
that the exact birth dates of all the others of the family were 
not taken. 

There may seem to be a difficulty in reconciling the fact 
that Mary and Thomas were so young at the time of their 

8 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

coming to New Jersey in 1677. This may be explained as 
follows : The parents of these brothers and sister may have 
died, and John, the oldest son, was responsible for the care of 
this youngest brother and sister. Besides this, a reference in 
the Town Annals of Burlington show that the Buntings were 
related to the Dodsons, in whose company they came, and it 
is very probable that the wife of John was one of this family, 
as no record of his marriage is found there, except that he 
had children. Mary and Thomas, therefore, had care-takers 
during the period of their youth. 



BRIEF REFERENCE TO THE JERSEY THREE 

I. John Dodson, of Daniel I, settled finally in Cheltenham 
Township, then Philadelphia County, near the Bucks County 
line, and nearly opposite Burlington County. He became a 
farmer there, and was living there as late at 1725, at which 
time, (April 7th, 1725) he witnessed the Will of one Toby 
Lynch. (Reference, "Will Book E, page 10, Philadelphia 
Record Office.") 

5. Mary Dodson, of Daniel I. Born Nov. 11, 1664; 
married in Burlington in 1683, Richard Boyes. Reference 
"Town Annals of Burlington." 

This line has not been traced, tho' there are descendants 
of the Boyes name still remaining in B'urlington County. 

7. Thomas Dodson, of Daniel I. Bbrn October 19, 1669; 
married July 16, 1698, Katharine Savill, daughter of John 
Savill, of Snape, England. 

The genealogy of Thomas and descendants will begin that 
of the Maryland Branch and follow in order the Pennsylvania 
Branch. 



CHRONOLOGICAL SCHEME OF ARRANGEMENT 



This will be as follows : Bjeginning with oldest child 
of each family, if married and with issue, their line of de- 
scendants will follow, child after child in the order of birth, 
by families of each to their latest generation. Then the next 
child of each family to their latest generation, and likewise 
family after family in like manner. 

* No issue. II No data. ( ) Reference numbers. (S) 
unmarried. G generation, M married. 

Line of descent and key to the generation of each person 
heading a family record. 

The line of descent, and the numerical place held by each 
child in a family, is shown by a figure before the first let- 
ter of the Christian name. Thus: iThompson P. Ege, 4SU- 
sannah, 7Nancy, 6Richard, i Thomas, ijohn, Daniel I. 

Reading from left to right, the figure before each name in- 
dicates the number of each child in the order of birth of the 
name following, and so on down to No. I. The generation 
to which any name in the line belongs is determined by count- 
ing the names from right to left to that name. Thus Thomp- 
son P. Ege will be found to be of the 7th generation.

Thomas, after his marriage, date of which is of record, in 
that of First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, settled in 
Chester County, Pa., about 1723, having purchased land from 
the Franklins in Vincent Township. He is mentioned in tax 
lists as owning land there in 1729. In 1756 he removed to 
East Nantmeal Township. In 1758, tax rolls mention him as 
owning lands in both townships and still living in the latter 
township at that date. 

A survey map. by Benjamin Lightfoot, on August 25th, 
1755, show^ land of Thomas, and an adjoining tract of his son, 
John. A tracing of said survey is in possession of the author. 

Mary Prigg, wife of Thomas, was born in 1699, on the 
voyage from England to this country. She was the daugh- 
ter of William and Mary Prigg. The father died in 171 5 in

Philadelphia and his wife administered on the estate, August 
lo, 1715. 

Their children were bom, except the two oldest, in Ches- 
ter County, where they were all reared, and whence they all 
finally scattered to other places to find homes of their own. 

An interesting" record recently found by the writer, of 
Baptisms by the Rev. John Caspar Stoever, gives the dates of 
birth, and date of Baptism Deer. 3rd, 1731, of Hannah, Wil- 
liam and Richard, at French Creek, the part of Chester 
County through which it courses being thus named. 



From this point the Genealogy will be carried out, begin- 
ning with first child of Thomas and Mary Prigg Dodson, and 
following out his line to its latest generation, child after child 
in succession, each in like manner.

Historic Sketch. 

John had license January, 1745, to marry Mary Eleanor 
Evans, of Wales, granted by the Court of Chester County. 
John Appears on the tax rolls of the county, Vincent Town- 
ship, in 1753, and also in 1764, then owning sixty acres of 
tillable land, with buildings, and twenty acres of woodland in 
said township. 

John's two sons were born in Chester County. John 
removed to Salem Township, Luzerne County, in 1777, but 
was driven out by the Indians. He returned later, with his 
sons, and made themselves homes, clearing virgin forests there 
for buildings and farms. He lived for nearly a hundred 
years, and both himself and wife were buried in a small cem- 
etery near Harvey ville, Pa., in the same county, where their 
descendants placed tombstones in 1837 over parents and 
grandparents. 

It has been a tradition among the decendants that both 

12 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

John and his oldest son, Thomas, were soldiers in the War 
of the Revolution, at least for a brief period. 

A recent search and inquiry in the Revolutionary Records 
in the State Library at Harrisburg gives the following: 

(Copy.) 

Harrisburg, Pa., April 12, 1907. 
To whom it may concern : 

I hereby certify that the name of John Dodson appears 
"as that of a private on a 'Return' of First Company, Second 
Battalion, Chester County Militia, commanded by Lieut. Col- 
onel Thomas Bull, who are ordered on a tour of duty im- 
mediately. September 24, 1781." 

Page 336, Vol. V. Penna Archives, Fifth Series. 
[Signed] 

Luther R. Kelker, 
(Seal.) Custodian Public Records, 

Pennsylvania State Library. 

Also on the same date, as follows : 
To whom it may concern : 

I hereby certify that the name of Thomas Dodson ap- 
pears as that of a private on a Roll of Captain John Christie's 
Company of the Fifth Pennsylvania Regiment, commanded 
by Colonel Francis Johnston. September 9th, 1775. 

Page 39, Vol. Ill, Penna. Archives, 5th series. 
[Signed] — as above. 
(Seal) Luther R. Kelker. 

This later record, however, is not conclusive as to Thom- 
as, son of John, as a record of another Thomas, son of Mich- 
ael, of Chester County, was a member of the above-named 
Regiment and was a pensioner from 181 8 until his death in 
1825. 

Again, the fact that John Dodson, oldest of the three 
brothers of the Luzerne settlers (in 1777), was driven out by 
the Indians, and returned for a time to Chester County, would 
make it very probable that he could serve in the interim (be- 
fore his retuj-n to Luzerne County), as the date 1781 records 
in the army. At this date he was 61 years of age, but as he 
lived to within less than two years of one hundred, he could 
easily have had the vigor of a stalwart soldier. So this cer- 
tified record of John Dodson, of Chester County, will hardly 
admit of a doubt as to the person believed to be the soldier.

Historic and Character Sketch. 
Thomas, after his marriage, became associated with the 
family of Nathan Beach, Sr., having* for a time his home with 
them, at Beach Haven, Salem Township, Luzerne County. 
He assisted Nathan Beach in the building of one of the early 
flour mills of the region. Thomas finally settled on a farm 
near the mills, and was both farmer and miller. Thomas was 
a participant in many of the Indian attacks incident to the 
early settlement of the Wyoming Valley region. He was 
well versed in their wily tactics, and became a noted fighter 
and trailer, and was often called out to battle against the 
skulking foe. On the occasion of one of their attacks on a 
Block House near Beach Haven, to which, taking warning, 
many of the nearby inhabitants had fled for safety, and while 
Thomas and his wife were also fleeing to this place of refuge, 
they suddenly thought of their infant child left asleep in their 
home. Bidding his wife to remain hidden, he hastened back 
to bring it to her. This interval of delay saved their lives, 
for the Indians had been temporarily repulsed and had re- 
tired to a thicket in a ravine after killing and wounding sev- 
eral of the defenders. After reaching safety in the fort, 
Thomas called for volunteers to aid in driving them off. 
Young Nathan Beach, though a boy, ventured to go. Having 

14 



DoDSON Genealogy. 

secured guns and ammunition in the fort, they went forth, 
Nathan to carry and load the guns, under strict orders to 
follow close behind and under cover. They soon espied an 
Indian peeping from behind a tree, whom Thomas instantly 
shot and killed. In a few moments another, stealthily creep- 
ing to drag away his dead companion, met a similar fate. 
After nightfall the Indians took away the bodies of the slain, 
and departed. Thomas and the other refugees remained in 
the fort all night. Next morning Thomas and others fol- 
lowed their trail for many miles, finding where they buried 
their dead, but did not overtake them. 

Mehetabel (a good Old Testament Bible name, ( contracted 
to Mabel), was the daughter of Elias Bixby and Deziar 
Herrick, of Puritan stock. Elias Bixby was a sea captain, 
and lost his life at sea. His widow married Nathan Beach, 
Sr., in Connecticut, and came with the colony from that State 
to the Wyoming Valley. She had four Bixby children, 
Elias, David, Mehetabel and Susannah. The two sons lost 
their lives in the Wyoming massacre, and their names are in- 
scribed on the commemorative shaft erected there. 

Deziar Herrick, the mother of Mehetabel Bixby, came 
from distinguished English ancestry, viz., Lord and Lady Her- 
rick of "Beau Manoir," Leicestershire, England. Their son 
Henry, Puritan settler in Salem, Massachusetts ; his son 
Ephriam and wife, Mary Cross, Beverly, Mass. ; his son Sam- 
uel and wife Mehetabel Woodward, Beverly, Mass. ; his son 
Ezekial and wife (name unknown), Coventry, Conn.; his 
daughter, Deziar, married, ist Elias Bixby. 2nd Nathan 
Beach, Sr., 3rd, in her old age, Joseph Rhodes, and died Sep- 
tember 1 8th, 1804. 

Thomas and wife were devoted Christians and members 
of the Methodist Church. Their hospitable home was. dur- 
ing his life, the place of general worship, the home of the itin- 
erant minister, and the place where all Christian people were 
ever welcome, as followers and brethren of the same Divine 
Master and Father. 

Their numerous and respected children partook largely of 
the same spirit, thus exemplified by the* parents, and were 
mostly members of the same religious society. Their parents* 
names were household words in their day and generation, and 
generations following, as their repeated names in a long line 
of descendants will testify.

was recognized as one of the most useful and valuable cit- 
izens of his community. He was a man of modest tastes and 
inclinations and his home life was a model of happy and 
christian example. He loved his country and had great faith 
in its stability and greatness. He was deeply interested in 
geology and often mentioned to friends in conversation, that 
he believed that with the improved facilities in science and 
electricity many valuable minerals would be found and devel- 
oped in the mountains of Carbon County. His family record 
appears from numbers 25-34 and 230-247.

Sketch. 
Elias Dodson, the head of this family, was born and 
reared in Huntington Township, Luzerne County. He was 
an heroic and stalwart yeoman of his day. He was an ex- 
tensive landholder and operated saw and grist mills, and 
a thorough business man. Besides this he became an able 
preacher of the Baptist faith and caused to be built the first 
Baptist place of worship in his native township. He found 
time 'midst his active business to lead a life of great useful- 
ness and good works in his community. In the fulfilment of 
various calls and duties, he feared neither storm nor hindrance, 
and left behind him a name still fresh in the memory of the 
few remaining ones of the generation following him, for his 
worth and example of good works. Many incidents in his 
life are still household legends oft repeated.

iness life and influence, at once embarked in lumbering in his 
native forests of Columbia and Luzerne counties. This was 
a very profitable business in that region, even in that day of 
plentiful supply. 

When the call for volunteers came in 1861, to defend 
their country from dissolution, he promptly obeyed, and at 
the age of 28, enlisted for the war, in Co. F, 7th Penna Re- 
serves. He participated in all the principal battles of the 
Army of the Potomac. During the occasional respite of 
arduous duties and rest in camp life, he formed a friend in 
the midst of foes, and a pleasant hour now and then, in a 
Southern home and congenial company. When the war was 
over and he had received his honorable discharge, he returned 
to Virginia to claim this fair lady of the South as his bride. 
He again returned to Virginia and took up the business of 
his young manhood there for five years. Then returned to his 
Pennsylvania home, bought a large tract of valuable timber 
land, erected saw mills and continued in this profitable busi- 
ness with success for the rest of his busy years. 

He was a congenial companion, a member of the G. A. R., 
influential in the affairs of state, and served well in the local 
offices of his county.

Sketch. 

In this family of George Dodson it is worthy of note that 
his four sons and two sons-in-law were soldiers in the Civil 
War. The record of Elias BL, his oldest son, and sketch of 
his life follows that of his family, numbers 353-356. James 
T., second son, enlisted in the company of the famous Buck- 
tails, 149th Regt., Pa. Vol., Infantry. During his period of 
service he was a prisoner in Salisbury, N. C, for seven months. 
After his exchange he rejoined his Regiment and served the 
full period of his enlistment shortly before the close of the 
war. Charles M. enlisted in the 52nd Regiment, Pa. VoL 
Infantry, for three years, but after one year was discharged 
by reason of disability from sickness. He was then appointed 
enrolliing officer for the second draft, and suffered great op- 
position and abuse at the hands of those who were bitter 
against their government, and did all in their power to thwart 
and hinder its success. After a year he re-enlisted in Com- 
pany B, 199th Regt., in which he served until the end of the 
war. Chester, the youngest son, was only sixteen years of 
age when the war began, but he managed to be accepted as a 
substitute* for nine months. When his time expired, he r«^ 
enlisted in the i6th Penna. Cavalry, in which he served until 
the end of the war. Lane Hedden, son-in-law of George Dod- 
son, enlisted in Company E, i88th Regt., Pa. Vol., Infantry. 
Was wounded at Drury's Bluff May 16, 1864, having three

fingers of his right hand shot off, after which he was honor- 
ably discharged. Furman Smith, another son-in-law, who 
was an industrious fanner, and in winter a school teacher, 
having taught in all thirty-six terms, enlisted in the army in 
the spring of 1864, in Company K, 112th Regiment, Pa. Vol. 
Heavy Artillery, and served until the end of the war.

Note. — Silas Dodson. the head of this family and their 
descendants, began his active life as a farmer in his native 
county, but his energetic mind and spirit led him into the 
more active business of life, engaging extensively in lumber- 
ing, with steam mill power aid. He served as County Com- 
missioner of Luzerne County for three years. He was the 
first Republican elected in his county to any public office. Not 
long after, he became interested in other business firms and 
enterprises. He went to California; invented several useful 
machines ; traveled extensively, making two trips to Europe 
in the interest of his inventions ; finally removed to New York 
City, where he died in 1888, and was buried in Bay View 
Cemetery.

Sketch. 

Hon. John Dodson Stiles, seventh son of Lewis and Sarah 
Ann Dodson Stiles, was born at Town Hill, Luzerne County, 
Pennsylvania, January 15, 1823. He became one of the most 
prominent men of his day, and lived a lifefof great usefulness, 
in State and National as well as community affairs. He ac- 
quired a liberal academic education, afterwards studied law, 
and ,was admitted to the bar at Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania, 
June 24th, 1844, shortly after attaining- his majority, and on 
September 5th of the same year he was admitted to the bar of 
Allentown, in which city he took up his residence, and with 
which he was prominently identified thenceforth throughout 
his life. 

He became a leading practitioner, and during his 
life conducted an extensive and lucrative practice. His en- 
trance upon public life dates from 1853, when he was elected 
District Attorney for Lehigh County, to which office he was 
elected without any opposition, and in which position he 
served for three years, acquitting himself most creditably. 

He was a Democrat in politics, and in 1856 was chosen 
a delegate to the National Convention, which nominated for 
the Presidency, James Buchanan,, whom he aided largely in 
obtaining Jiis nomination, and whom he held in honor as a 
statesman and in affection as a friend. In that memorable 
contest, the organization of the party was attributed to the 
young men of Pennsylvania, prominent among whom was Mr. 
Stiles. In his county, Mr. Biuchanan received a larger in- 
creased majority than in any other county in Pennsylvania. 

57

In i860 Thomas B. Cooper, a Democrat and intimate 
friend of Mr. Stiles, was elected to Congress from the Fifth 
District of Pennsylvania, composed of the counties of Lehigh 
and Bucks, by a majority of one hundred votes. Mr. Cooper 
entered upon his duties, but in the beginning of the second 
session of the 32nd Congress he died, and Governor Curtin, 
fearing that a Democrat might be elected, delayed his proc- 
lamation for a special election for an unreasonable length of 
time, but finally ordered an election for the 24th of May, 1862. 
Mr. Stiles, with great unanimity, received the Democratic 
nomination but a single week before the election. Congress 
was then in session, and the outbreak of the war caused the 
election to be one of the most exciting that ever took place in 
the State. 

The district had been represented by a radical in the pre- 
ceding Congress, and was considered a doubtful one. Mr. 
Stiles was elected by 585 majority, a greater majority than 
had been given for any Democrat for years. He assumed his 
seat in the 37th Congress on the third day of June, 1862, and 
at once took an active part in its proceedings. In that body 
he served upon the Committees on Expenditures in the State 
Department, and on Revolutionary Claims. 

By the apportionment of the State in 1862, his Congres- 
sional district was changed, — Montgomery County having 
having been annexed to Lehigh, and Bucks County with Phil- 
adelphia. In the new district of Lehigh and Montgomery, 
Mr. Stiles was, by unanimous consent placed in nomination 
for re-election. The radicals made vigorous efforts to defeat 
him. His record in Congress on the war, was made because 
of bitterness, and he was most strenuously opposed because of 
his position on the first Tax Bill, against which he spoke and 
voted in the 37th Congress. 

His opponent. Judge Krause, who shortly before deserted 
the Democratic party, was a man of great popularity and of 
great ability. He was denominated a "War Democrat" and 
hoped to receive sufficient support from the Democracy to 
carry the district. Mr. Stiles received a most flattering en- 
dorsement, carryiing his district against fierce personal oppo- 
sition by a majority of 3,224. 

In 1864 Mr. Stiles was not a candidate for renomination. 
He was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 
1864, which nominated General McClellan, whom he sup- 

58

ported. He took an active part in the ensuing" campaign. In 
1866 he was a delegate appointed by the Democratic State 
Central Committee to the National Union Convention, which 
assembled in Philadelphia. 

In the Democratic State Convention of 1866, Mr, Stiles, 
though not a candidate, received the vote of his own and sev- 
eral other counties for Governor. In 1866 he was a delegate 
to the National Convention which nominated Mr. Seymour, 
and in the same year his county, again being entitled to a 
candidate, he was unanimously placed in nomination and was 
elected to the 41st Congress by a majority of 2679. During 
his entire service in Congress, Mr. Stiles was favored with 
prominent positions on the committees of the House, and 
took an active part in its proceedings. No man was more 
active and determined in the opposition to the land grab 
subsidies, and his course in Congress was unanimously ap- 
proved in his district upon all the great questions which 
agitated the country during- his three terms of service. 

Mr. Stiles never asked and never received an appoint- 
ment to office, either Federal or State, but was always elected 
to the same.

* Sketch. 

Harry Gibbons Stiles is the second child and second son 

of Honorable John Dodson and Mary A. (Gibbons) Stiles. 

He began his studies in the public schools of AUentown, later 

attended the public schools of Princeton, 111., for six years, and 

59 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

was gp-aduated from the High School of Allen town, on the 
30th of June, 1874. For two years thereafter he pursued 
special branches in Muhlenberg College, and then entered the 
Law School of Harvard University, from which he was grad- 
uated in 1878. 

He iwas also favored with instructions by his father in 
his professional studies, and on April 14th, 1879, he was ad- 
mitted to practice at the bar of Lehigh County, and at once 
formed a partnership with his father under the firm name of 
John D. Stiles & Son. 

On the 27th day of September, 1889, Mr. Stiles married 
Miss Annie Yheuloii, of Allentown, the daughter of Joseph 
and Caroline Ylheulon, well known people of his native city, 
where they have a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. 

In 1884 he was elected District Attorney by the 
immense majority of 3300 votes, for the term of three years, 
and acquitted himself with great ability and credit to the 
office. On the expiration of his term, as District Attorney he 
again resumed the general practice of law. In 1894 he was 
nominated as the Democratic candidate for State Senator in 
the district composed of Lehigh County, and he was the only 
man elected on his party's ticket. 

In 1898 he was elected State Senator by a handsome ma- 
jority of 2000 votes. He has frequently served as a delegate 
to the County and State Conventions of his party. On the 
expiration of his term as Senator, Mr. Stiles again resumed 
the practice of law, and has since conducted a large and lucra- 
tive practice. 

Mr. Stiles always gave close, careful and intelligent at- 
tention to his public duties. The greater part of his time and 
attention, however, is devoted to his legal practice and in 
the prosecution of his chosen profession, in which he has met 
with most excellent success.

Note. — Caroline Matilda Harrison was the daughter of 
Mary Dodson, of Samuel and Elizabeth Rhodes Dodson, 
and of Stephen Harrison, Jr., who was the son of Stephen 
Harrison, Sr., and Susannah Franklin. The Harrisons had 
the same ancestry as the two Harrison Presidents of the 
United States, and the Franklins were near relatives of Ben- 
jamin Franklin. See sketch after Nos. 3593-3606. 

Malvina Augusta Dodson, the first born child of this fam- 
ily, developed early in life into a lovely Christian character. 
She was finely educated and had made full preparation for 
missionary work in the foreign field, and when about to em- 
bark for 'India to begin her chosen work^ death claimed her 
for his own. 

Another member of this family claims very special rec- 
ord. Dr. Caroline Matilda Dodson. She was a very gifted 
woman and in a checkered career emphasized the use of her 
gifts in many ways. Her parents were natives of Hunting- 
ton Valley, Luzerne County, Pa., who soon after their mar- 
riage removed to the West, where the subject of this sketch 
was born. Her mother was a woman of strong character 
and advanced thought, and after the death of her husband 
was compelled to aid largely in the support of herself and her 
children. To this end she opened a school in her own house. 
Under this mother's rearing and instruction, Caroline began 
her education, pursuing it thoroughly until she also became a 
successful teacher, which she followed until she matriculated, 
at the Woman's Medical College, in Philadelphia, graduating 
also in the nurses' training school of the Woman's Hospital. 
She received her diploma in 1874 as a physician, after which 
she spent a year in hospital practice. Her active and energetic 
mind, in connection with her profession, led her in association 
with numerous societies of church and charity, temperance 
and education, and the higher and nobler activities of woman. 
She was a devoted member of the Baptist Church, and in her

workings of Temple Church and College founded by Dr. Con- 
well in Philadelphia. She both wrote and spoke bravely and 
later years was deeply interested in the earnest and successful 
earnestly in behalf of the various movements for good which 
claimed her interest. Many beautiful poems also emanated 
from her pen, one of which will close this tribute to her noble 
and Christian character. She died in Philadelphia January, 
1898. Her remains were taken to Luzerne County and in- 
terred in the old Scott Cemetetry there. 



The Trackless Sfa. 



A ship out on the trackless sea, 

With sails full spread, 
Gliding over waves so free, 

By breezes fed. 

The gentle winds have caught her sails 

At break of day. 
As though they sought by friendly gales 

To speed her way. 

A tiny, fairy, wandering thing 

Out there alone; 
As though a bird on slender wing 

Had hither flown. 

The parting waves with silvery spray, 

Obey command. 
Speeding each hour her homeward way 

To native land. 

Thus out upon the waves of life. 

My little bark 
I would have carried free from strive, 

Through light or dark. 

I'd have the sea be calm and clear, 

Each hour to come. 
No clouds to lend a darkening fear, 

'Till I reach home. 

Let heaven's sunbeams near and far, 

Light mom and noon. 
And if night come, kind moon and star 

Dispel the gloom.

Ships passing leave no trace behind, 

And so shall I 
Full soon a blessed harbor find, 

And homeward fly. 

The sands of life like ripened grain 

Will seek the shore, 
And garnered safe, wander again 

Aye, never more! 

By Caroline M. Dodson, M. D. 
Lines written upon watching a sail at 
Ocean Grove, 7 a. m., July 7, 1895.

Sketch. 
No' positive trace of this family, in several years' research, 
has been ascertained. Records imperfect and dates lacking, 
and knowledge of them lost almost entirely from living rela- 
tives. And this knowledge is now only a pathetic remembrance 
of a sad history. John Dodson, the father of this family, 
owned a small but unproductive farm on the east side of the 
Susquehhanna River, in his native Luzerne County. On this 
he struggled for several years to maintain his family. One 
day a stranger called to see him and said : "I hear you wish to 
sell your farm." The reply was : "It is not worth buying, 
and any man who would buy it would be throwing his money 
away. If I had the means to move from it and do something 
else, I would give it away."The stranger replied : "My friend, 
you are surely joking or else having a very severe attack of 
the blues. Won't you name a price for it? I am in earnest 
and will buy it at a fair price." The reply of the unhappy 
owner was: "Now you are joking. I would be ashamed to 
name a price." The stranger said: "Will you take $4,000 
for it?" This was still more of a joke on the part of the 
owner, and he could not believe it. But the parley ended in 
his receiving the offer, and the farm was sold. The poor 
farm, so unproductive on the surface, was soon proved by the 
sequel of the transaction to have its riches underneath. And 
the sleek stranger soon sold it for the round sum of $100,000.

The discouraged farmer parted with his unknown and hidden 
wealth for a song, and with the money received went to the 
West to buy a farm in the richer prairie lands of Illinois, set- 
tling in Ogle County, at or near the little town of Polo. In 
three months after his arrival he died with cholera, June 24th, 
1849. This was but the beginning of sorrows. His oldest 
daughter, Mrs. Doctor White, was thrown out of a carriage 
in a runaway of the horses, and killed. Another daughter, 
M'ary, who was a teacher in Mt. Morris Seminary, at the close 
of the school term, started on her way home and was never 
heard of again, but was thought tO' have been robbed and 
murdered. Two sons, Hilzey and Melville, were in the Civil 
War, and lost their lives therein. Another son, Fletcher, 
while en route to California, overland, was slain by the In- 
dians near the site of Fort Wala Wala. Such a chapter of 
fatalities in sad succession is rare in the history of one family.

Sketch. 

Robert Hamilton Dodson was "coxswain" of the ill-fated 
crew of the steam launch of the U. S. warship "Minnesota," 
which went down with all on board between 12 and i o'clock 
on the early morning of June nth, 1907, in Hampton Roads, 
Va., while returning from the Jamestown exposition. 

The following extract from the letter of Captain John 
Hubbard, commanding the Minnesota, to his father, is a 
tribute to his memory and worth : 

"I consider that the Navy has sustained a great loss when 
your son was drowned, as he has been most zealous and efficient 
in the performance of his duties, and reflected great credit 
upon his ship and the naval service in general. He lost his 
life while in the performance of his duty."

His body was recovered and sent tO' his Chicago home. 
He was buried June 22nd, in "Oakwoods Cemetery" with 
naval honors. Six cadets from the naval reserve ship "Doro- 
thea," in full uniform, were the pall bearers.

Note. — Jesse Bowman Dodson was born and reared on 
the early homestead farm taken up by his father in the pioneer 
days of the early settlement of the Shickshinny Valley, Lu- 
zerne County. Here also he spent his useful and influential 
life. He was a man of strong religious character, an active 
member of the Methodist Church, and ever earnest and efficient 
for its welfare, and in all efforts for the moral betterment of 
the community in which he lived — a valuable citizen, whose 
place and example were felt as a loss when his summons came 
and his work was ended.

John and Mary Eleanor Evans Dodson Line. 
Sketch. 

With the last mentioned name of the Dodson-Barnes alli- 
ance, viz, Howard Franklin Moreland, born September 26th, 
1906, ends the remarkable line of descendants of John and 
Mary Eleanor Evans Dodson, whom said John had license 
from the court of Chester County in 1745 to marry. John 
was the oldest son of Thomas, the first born American ances- 
tor, who married Mary Prigg in 1718, and soon after mar- 
riage settled in Chester County, Pa. 

The early sons of Chester county birth and rearing, as 
families multiplied, soon began to scatter, first to other por- 
tions of the State, to seek new homes and lands. They were 
nature's stalwart yeomanry, and very naturally their first occu- 
pation was to clear the forests, build homes and till the virgin 
soil. 

A generation or two later, we find them scattering still 
further West for cheaper lands in the rich prairie soil. Now 
living descendants are found in almost every State of the West 
and Northwest, in farming, business and mining enterprises, 
and in the professions of law, medicine and the church. Many 
were soldiers in the Civil War, others have filled public posi- 
tions in county and State, and all leaving an impress of sta- 
bility and usefulness in their day and generation. 



Thomas and Mary Priggs Dodson. 
A brief record of some other children of Thomas and 
Mary Prigg Dodson, than those fully recorded in this volume, 
but of whom very little is known beyond the mention of their 
names, must properly follow here. 

Michael Dodson, second son, a record of whose baptism 
in 1722, is preserved in the parish archives of Christ Church, 
Philadelphia.

DoDSON Genealogy. 

Michael married (name of wife unknown) and had issue 
— two sons, Michael, Jr., and Thomas Dodson. Michael Dod- 
son, Sr., was a fanner and was assessed in Vincent Township, 
Chester County, Pa., in 1749, and also in 1753, being then 
married. He removed later to Lehigh County and died there. 
Michael, Jr., born about 1746, was a private in Chester County 
Militia in 1776, and later during the Revolution was a mem- 
ber of the Fifth Regiment of the famous Pennsylvania line. 
Thomas, born about 1748, was also a Revolutionary soldier 
in the same regiment. Thomas drew a pension of ninety-six 
dollars a year, dating from January 26th, 18 18, until his death, 
April loth, 1825. Both sons were born in Chester County, 
but followed their father and two uncles to Northampton 
County and settled for a time in that portion of the county 
which is now Lehigh County. Michael, St., died there. The 
sons afterwards went to Berkley County, now West Virginia, 
where they both died. 

No positive knowledge of any descendants of these has 
been ascertained. Michael, Jr., at least must have married 
and left issue. During the researches of the author, a Griffith 
Dodson was found in Qinton, Douglas County Kansas, who 
stated that his father's name was Michael, and that he and 
his wife were born in the Allegheny mountain region of West 
Virginia; maiden name of his wife was Belle, and that they 
had six sons. 

3rd. Ann Dodson. Bom about 1725. Married James Bur- 
nason. 

4th. Hannah Dodson. Born December 7, 1727. Mar- 
ried William Templin. 

5th. William Dodson. Born August, 1729. 

7th. James Dodson. Born about 1732. 

8th. Joseph Dodson. Born about 1734. 

James and Joseph went soon after or about the close of 
the Revolution, to Kentucky, and were never heard of again as 
far as the memories and traditions of older descendants of 
their Luzerne brothers knew. 

Except the scant knowledge of Michael's sons nothing 
further has ever been ascertained of these. No record of Wil- 
liam, beyond that of his baptism and birth date, has been found, 
nor any mention or tradition handed down from ancestors. 
It is very probable that he died in his childhood or young man-

hood ; nor any knowledge of Esther, the youngest child of the 
Chester county progeny. 

The tabulated and historic records of John, Richard, 
Thomas and Samuel will therefore form the body of the his- 
tory of the Pennsylvania branch. 



Richard and Susannah Rhodes Dodson Line. 

Sketch. 
Richard Dodson, fourth son of Thomas and Mary Prigg 
Dodson, was born in Chester County, Pa., June 26, 1731, and 
with a brother and sister, William and Hannah, were baptized 
at the same time, December 3, 1731, by Rev. John Caspar 
Stoever, Jr., an early Lutheran missionary, who ministered 
to the scattered people of the several counties in the eastern 
part of the State. This reference of birth and baptism dates 
was recently found by the author in a record of baptisms and 
marriages, as written by Rev. John Casper Stoever, and re- 
cently translated from the German (1896) by Rev. J. F. J. 
Schantz, D. D., of Myerstown, Pa. Said record book is now 
preserved in the Pennsylvania Historical Society Library in 
Philadelphia. 

Richard removed about the time or soon after his mar- 
riage to Penn Township, Northampton County, Pa., where he 
purchased and owned land near some other brothers and mem- 
bers of the Rhodes family, relatives of his wife, Susannah 
Rhodes, granddaughter of John Rhodes, of Derbyshire, Eng- 
land, who came to Pennsylvania in 1682, with Wm. Penn, and 
took up a large body of land, on which is now the town of 
Darby, a suburb of Philadelphia, and so named by him from 
his native shire of England. 

"Barlborough Hall," the ancient baronial home of Rhodes' 
ancestry in Derbyshire, is still in the possession of descendants, 
of whom the late Cecil Rhodes, of African and English fame, 
was one, and of whose beneficent founding of "Oxford schol- 
arships," American students are now participants. 

During the war of the Revolution, Richard Dodson raised 
a company of militia in Penn Township, Northampton County, 
Pa., of which he was commissioned as captain, May 22nd, 
1775. (Penna. Archives, 2nd Series, Vo'l. XIV. Page 555.) 
His company became part of the famous "Pennsylvania Line," 
in which he served during the war, and it is thought until after 
the winter at Valley Forge. About 1780 he removed from 

116 



DoDSON Genealogy, 

Northampton County to Salem Township (Beach Haven), 
Luzerne County, Pa., and by warrant took up two hundred 
acres of land, fronting on the Susquehanna River. There he 
built his home of hewn logs from the forest, and began to farm 
anew. 

Among his first troubles incident to his new home were 
those of disputed boundaries and claims between the Connecti- 
cut and Pennsylvania settlers, which were finally settled by the 
Colonial Assembly surveying and defining boundaries and 
giving each landholder a river frontage of a thousand feet, 
and so running back from the same. 

'Indian raids were frequent, and their depredations were 
severe. In one of these raids their oldest son, John, of about 
eighteen years, was killed. He was buried on the Beach Ha- 
ven farm, near the river. 

In the late fall of 1784, in another Indian incursion, they 
were driven from their home and their house was burned, 
with all its contents, family records, deeds and papers. The 
father was breaking up some new ground for spring planting, 
some distance from the house. The mother noticed a skulk- 
ing Indian near. She at once sent one of the young child- 
ren to warn the father. He sent the child back to have the 
mother send the children one by one to the spring, as if tO' get 
water, and last of all, she herself followed with infant in arms. 
(Said infant became the grandmother of the author.) Mean- 
while the father hid his horses in a thicket of bushes, joined 
them and hastened to their boat at the river, wherein to make 
their escape. When about the middle of the river they saw 
their home in flames, the Indians dancing around it, and hurl- 
ing feather beds in the air. They crossed to Wapwallopen, 
where they found such shelter as best they could, and with 
but their scanty clothing for a protection, passed the night. 

In the morning the father ventured back, found his horses, 
and recrossing the river with them, began their refuge journey 
through the Wapwallopen Gap, and over the mountains to 
relatives and friends in Northampton County. 

From the hardships and exposure of the war and the 
recent toil and experience of loss and journey Richard sick- 
ened and died in the next year. The mother was left with 
quite a family of young children. These were compelled to 
find homes with friends and strangers. The widow's main 
dependence being her oldest son, Joseph, then about nineteen

years of age, who* became the practical head of the family, and 
with whom the mother made her home, surviving her husband 
until 1815. As soon as they could, when Joseph became of 
age, they returned to Salem Township and took up their claim. 
They found other claimants for it, and a dispute between two 
such for its unlawful possession. The court finally awarded 
it to one "Lockhard" on condition of his paying the widow 
Dodson's claim, a large portion of which land is still in the 
LxDckhard possession (Case of Lockhard vs. Kuhn and Kern 
(Bound Mss. Proprietaries, Pg. 579) July, 1790). Joseph then 
finally took up a large tract of eight hundred acres in Union 
Township, Luzerne County, about 1 796, having then married.

Sketch. 
Joseph Dodson was truly a hardy pioneer. His large pur- 
chase of eight hundred acres of land, virgin forest, indicates 
this, on which he erected homes and a large saw mill of prim- 
itive construction. He engaged largely in lumbering, clearing 
farms, one each in time for his six sons. He did much for the 
advancement of agriculture and education. He built a school 
house on his own land for the benefit of his own and neigh- 
bors' children, and which as well as his own house, was fre- 
quently used as a place of worship by the itinerant minister. 
He served his township and county well and honorably in 
many local offices and interests. He was a conscientious 
Christian, a member of the Methodist Church. His name was 
a household word of praise and esteem for long years after 
his demise, and handed down through a long line of descend- 
ants, a number of whom are still living on lands of the early 
possession. His widow was the daughter of Joshua Bennett, 
one of the colony of Connecticut settlers in Luzerne County, 
Pa., and who survived him until 1856, in the 84th year of her 
age.

Sketch. 



Dr. Ellis M. Santee, of Cortland, New York, by most 
laudable energy and perseverance, has become one of the 
most prominent men in his profession in the State, and not 
only in his particular profession, but in varied interests of 
general and practical advantage. Educated in the common 
schools and in the Nev^ Columbus Academy of Luzerne 
County, Pa., he at once began his life's career as a teacher 
and taught the school at Muhlenburg in the same county, for 
two years, 1879 "^^^ 1880. He next learned photography 
and carried on this business in Cortland, N. Y., until 1887. 
Then came the change in his life that has placed him high in 
a sphere of usefulness to his State and community. He be- 
gan the study of medicine, took two courses of lectures at the 
Hahnemann College, Philadelphia, and then a finishing and 
graduating course in the Homeopathic College of Missouri. 
In 1890 he was elected resident physician of Hahnemann Hos- 
pital, Rochester, N. Y., for one year. In 1891 he began 
practicing medicine in Cortland, N. Y. Has been Lecturer on 
Obstetrics'since 1894, in the Cortland Hospital Training 
School for Nurses. Other interests outside of medicine have 
claimed his successful attention. A stock farm of high class 
cattle, and especially devoted to the production and handling

of sanitary milk, in which also as Health Commissioner he 
is considered an expert. In this special line, under the aus- 
pices of the agricultural and educational departments of the 
State, since 1900, he is engaged in annual lecture tours upon 
sanitary matters in general, as well as State expert as to the 
production and care of sanitary milk. As representative ex- 
pert of the State he has had charge of the diagnosis, care and 
quarantine of smallpox cases and other epidemics of his sec- 
tion, and also the examination and passing of candidates for 
admission to the State Sanitarium in the Adirondacks, N. Y., 
for incipient tuberculosis. Good roads and side paths have 
also received his active leadership, as chairman of committees 
and compiler of road and tour books and road maps of the 
State. He is a frequent contributor to medical, sanitary and 
agricultural publications, and has published a "Repertory of 
Convulsions," and also a genealogy of the Santee family. He 
also delivers a course of lectures each year at Cornell Univer- 
sity. He served seven years in the National Guard of his 
State, rising from a private to the command of the 45th 
Regiment, and is now a supernumerary officer. Such an active 
life can leave few, if any, idle hours, and cannot fail to win 
deserved recognition and appreciation throughout his section 
of his adopted State.

Sketch. 



Hugh Thompson was born of Scotch-Irish parentage, 
Paul and Ann Geddes Thompson, who came to this country 
in 1792, landing at Philadelphia when the subject of this sketch 
was but a lad of fifteen years. They were met in Philadelphia 
by Geddes relatives and conveyed in wagons to their home in 
Gettysburg, so named from their original Scotch name, but 
now spelled Gettys. The Thompson family settled first for a 
brief period at Dillsburg, York County, Pa., a small village 
near Gettysburg. They finally removed to Berwick, Pa., 
where Hugh married, built his home, reared his family and 
spent his remaining days. He was a man of sturdy character, 
firm in his opinions of right, and a devoted Christian, ever ready 
with an answer, oftimes witty, but with an applicable meaning 
that never failed to make an impression to be remembered. His 
and never in a flippant manner, as is so often done without 
apt quotations of Scripture, in which he was thoroughly versed, 
were ever used to clinch a moral argument or lesson for good 
regard to their sacredness. He passed to his rest full of years, 
strong in faith and mind unimpaired.

Sketch. 



Rev. Oliver Ege was born at Boiling Springs, Cumber- 
land County, Pa., December nth, 1802, and died in Mechan- 
icsburg, in the same county, and only about ten miles from the 
place of his birth, in the 88th year of his age, and the sixty- 
second of his ministry. He joined the Methodist Episcopal 
Church in Harrisburg, in 1819. Between the dates given was 
comprehended a life as useful and honored as it was extended. 
Not very long after his entering upon a religious life, thoughts 
touching the Christian ministry crystallized into convictions. 
Feeling the need of better literary advantages he made use of 
his savings to procure the same. He then became a student 
in the home of Dr. Asa Herring, of Mechanicsburg, who gave 
instruction to a limited number of students, whom he thus 
prepared for the study of medicine or for entrance into col- 
lege. He pursued his studies there for two years, but during 
this time he frequently exercised his gifts, holding prayer and 
exhortation meetings in the town and vicinity, having been 
licensed therefor on March 23rd. 1825. In consequence 
thereof, about two years later, he was recommended for ad- 
mission into the Baltimore Conference of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church. Two years of probationary trial having^

elapsed, on March 22, 1829, he was ordained "Deacon" in Bal- 
timore, by Bishop Robert Roberts, and two years later, March 
20, 183 1, was ordained "Elder" by Bishop Elijah Hedding. 
On February 7th, 1833, he was united in marriage to Susan- 
nah P.Thompson, daughter of Hugh and Ann Dodson Thomp- 
son, of Berwick, Pa. She was indeed a thorough helpmeet to 
him, through all his years of active labor, in the many homes 
in his ministry among strangers, as their lot was so frequently 
cast. Two sons and two daughters were born of this union. 
The home life of husband and wife, with their children, was 
one of love and tenderness, and with the blessedness of relig- 
ious influence and example was such as to bring forth the fruit 
of good living, and the exemplification of the true Christian 
home. And so with their intercourse with those among whom 
their lot was so frequently cast. Uniform kindness of heart 
ever characterized it, and there was a road to their hearts not 
hard to find. The services he rendered the church of his 
choice, as an itinerant minister, can scarcely be estimated or 
ennumerated in a brief sketch, but in those pioneer days they 
were truly heroic. His first charge embraced a circuit of 
about six hundred miles, territory now forming a conference. 
The deprivations endured, the dangers incurred, and expedi- 
ents resorted to in the face of unforseen difificulties, ofttimes 
of storm and flood, in order to meet appointments, can scarce- 
ly be realized in these days of ease and comfort. His early 
ministry was one in which he preached in groves, private 
houses, barns, and seldom in houses consecrated to the wor- 
ship of God. A scattered flock, few members, and scarcity of 
money, made the building of church edifices well-nigh impos- 
sible. For thirty-three years of active itineracy he worked 
faithfully for God and man. He was a splendid type of that 
class of godly men who "for the joy that was set before them 
endured the cross, despised the shame, gloried in tribulation, 
and with heroic perseverance toiled on, until they saw the 
pleasure of the Lord prospering in their hands. In i860 Rev. 
Oliver Ege retired from his active ministry. He then em- 
barked with his adult sons in the management of the Cumber- 
land Institute for Boys and Young Men. In this new field 
there was still ample scope for the exercise of his godly life 
and example, and which in exhortation and pious counsel he 
never lost an opportunity for good. Until disabled by 
age and disease in the few last years of his life he was very fre-

quently called upon to exercise his ministerial gifts. 

As a private citizen he clearly understood and appreciated 
his duty and privilege, and with fidelity and spirit discharged 
every obligation devolving upon him. He passed away full 
of years with duty all and fully done, to the eternal rest fully 
deserved and faithfully won. His devoted wife survived him 
for a few years more, and their mortal remains now rest side 
by side in the cemetery at Danville, Pa. 

Supplementary Sketch-. 

Rev. Thompson P. Ege, his oldest son, and the compiler 
and publisher of this family history, was bom at the home of 
his grandfather in Berwick, Pa., in 1835. He graduated at 
Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa., in 1855, and at once began 
his active career in life as a teacher. In i860, he became the 
principal of Cumberland Valley Institute in Mechanicsburg, 
Pa., a boarding school for boys. He was associated in this 
work by his father and brother. In 1865 he retired from the 
Institute to accept the presidency of Irving Female College 
in the same town, his father and brother remaining in the 
boys' school. In 1883 he resigned the presidency of the Col- 
lege and entered the ministry of the Episcopal Church, in 
which he is still actively engaged and now (1907) rector of 
the St. Paul Memorial Church, Oaks, Pa. In 1864, he married

Sketch. 

Dr. Samuel Yorks Thompson, son of John and Hannah 
Yorks Thompson, was born in Danville, Penna. He was ed- 
ucated in the schools of his native town and at the 
Cumberland Valley Institute,, Mechanicsburg, Pa. He early 
evinced a desire and aptitude for the study of medicine, and 
while a sudent at the Institute, supplemented his studies there 
by reading in the office and under the direction of Dr. P. H. 
Long. He graduated in medicine in New York City and im- 
mediately began the practice of his profession in Danville, 
where he achieved great success and a reputation which ex- 
tended far and wide throughout that portion of the State, and 
in consequence thereof he was almost constantly called in con- 
sultation, and frequently from fifty to a hundred miles distant. 
He was also a public-spirited citizen of his town and county. 
He was twice elected Associate Judge of his county and was 
filling his second term at the time of his death, which occurred 
suddenly in his office while writing a prescription for a patient, 
then present. He died from heart failure brought on by over- 
work and a self-sacrificing spirit that knew no rest nor suffered 
any call for help to pass unheeded. He married Anna E. Ege, 
v/hose mother was a first cousin of his father.

Dr. J. M. Stoever was a successful druggist and business 
man. At the beginning of the Civil War, while a student of 
pharmacy and employed in a drug store in Philadelphia, he 
enlisted in the 56th Regiment, Pa. Vol. Infantry. Because 

152

of his knowledge of medicine he was detailed much of the 
time as hospital steward. During the battle of Gettysburg he 
was in the ranks when his regiment delivered the first infan- 
try fire at the beginning of that famous battle on the first 
day. In retreating through the town he was captured by the 
enemy, but escaped and was recaptured. He soon made a sec- 
ond escape. From his knowledge of the town through fre- 
quent visits to an uncle, Rev. M. L. Stoever, who was a pro- 
fessor in the Lutheran Seminary there, he was able to find his 
way to a rear entrance and stairway to the attic of the Court 
House, where he remained concealed until the battle was over. 
The lower floors were used as hospitals by the Confederates 
while he was thus in hiding. After the battle he rejoined 
his regiment and remained until the close of the war. At the 
time of his decease he was the proprietor of a very successful 
pharmacy in the Broad Street Station of the Pennsylvania 
Railroad. 

Frank M. Stoever, his oldest son, is a graduate in ship 
architecture, both of the Roche and Cramp ship yards. He 
has been in the U. S. Government employ for a number of 
years, and is now in the Navy Department in Washington, 
D. C. 

Henry Von Hoff Stoever, second son, is a graduate phy- 
sician and pharmacist, and was associated with his father 
and now successor to him in the Broad Street Station Phar- 
macy.

A COLLATERAL LINE— STOEVER. 
Sketch. 

The history and ancestry of the Stoever family of early 
Colonial days is here worthy of record. 

In Rupp's collection of 30,000 names of German emi- 
grants arriving in this country, and among those who arrived 
September nth, 1728, on the ship "J^-mes Goodwill," David 
Crockett, master, from Rotterdam, are the names of John 
Casper Stoever, Sr., Missionaire, and John Casper, Jr., a 
Student of Theology. 

John Casper Stoever, Sr., was a native of Frankenburg, 
in Hesse, Germany, and his wife, Gertrandt (family name not 
given) born in Amt. (or village) Solingen. He labored as 
a Lutheran missionary in Spottsylvania, Virginia. In 1737 
he went to Europe toi raise means for the building of a 
church and the extetnsion of his work, and died on shipboard 
on the return voyage to this country. 

John Caspar, Jr., was born December 21st, 1707 in 
Suedorff, in Solingen Amt., Duchy Berg, in Unter Pfaltz. As 
a licensed student of theology he preached on shipboard and 
also until he was ordained in Philadelphia, April 8, 1733, by 
Rev. Christian Shultz. He labored in the eastern counties of 
Pennsylvania, with occasional calls to Virginia. A record of 
his baptisms and marriages, written in German, was faith- 
fully kept during all the years of his active ministry. This 
has been recently translated by Rev. F. J. F. Shantz, of 
Myerstown, Pa. This record contains the baptisms of all his 
children, and a number of his grandchildren. Also the mar- 
riage of several of his children. On one of his visitations to 
Chester County, in December, 1731, he baptized three child- 
ren of Thomas Dodson, among them Richard Dodson, the 
great-grandfather of the wife of Dr. J. M. Stoever, previously 
mentioned in the Dodson genealogy, and also at reference 
No. 2498 following.

Thomas Dodson, 2nd, Line. 

(16) 7. Thomas Dodson, son of Thomas and Mary 
Priggi Dodson, was bom in 1732, in Chester County, Pa. 
After reaching manhood and probable marriage he settled for 
a time in what is now Lehigh County, and finally, in the lat- 
ter part of 1700, settled in the western part of the State on a 
farm near Warrior's Mark, in Huntingdon County. Of his 
wife and family no data has been obtained except the name 
and descendants of one son, Richard, as follows : 

I. Richard Dodson, 7Thomas, i Thomas, ijohn, Daniel L 
Richard was born in Chester County in 1762, and married 
there in 1793, Mary Dunlapp. 

2600 I. Richard Dodson, b. 1762; m. 1793; d. 1843. 

2601 Mary Dunlapp, b. 1773. 

2602 GVI: I. Eleanor Dodson, b. 1794. 

2603 2. Thomas, 3rd, b. 1796. 

2604 3. Dr. William, b. 1798. 

2605 4. Sarah Alice, b. 1805. 

2606 5. Mary Ann, b. 1809. 

2607 6. Richard, 2nd, b. 5, 20, 181 1. 

2608 7. Eliza, b. 1 8 16. 

Note. — Richard Dodson settled on a farm near Smicks- 
burg, Indiana County, Pa., no doubt having accompanied his 
father to this portion of the State, and thus settling near him in 
an adjoining county. The Smicksburg farm has remained in 
the possession of his descendants, the last male descendant 
being Homer C. Dodson, who died in 1905. 

Of the above named children of Richard no information 
has been obtained from his descendants, either of Eleanor or 
Thomas, 3rd, except that Thomas emigrated to Ohio in early 
manhood. Sarah Alice is said to have married a Riddle, and 
that she died soon after marriage and left no issue.

Samuel and Elizabeth Rhodes Dodson Line. 
II. Samuel Dodson was the youngest son of Thomas and 
Mary Prigg Dodson, of Chester County, Pa. After his mar- 
riage he removed to Northampton County, in a portion of 
what is now Lehigh County. He took up land on the 
Mahoning Creek. He died there at rather an early age in 
comparison with that of his older brothers. He married 
Elizabeth Rhodes, daughter of John and Judith Rhodes, who 
was the sister of Susannah Rhodes, the wife of Richard Dod- 
son, his older brother. Their children were therefore 
double first cousins. The Lehigh County home of Sam- 
uel was in the vicinity of the Moravian settlements, with whom 
they became religiously identified, though both the Dodson and 
Rhodes families were originally of Quaker stock. 

The following extracts from the Church Book of the Mo- 
ravian congregation are of much interest: 

"Elizabeth Rhodes, wife of Samuel Dodson, bom Decem- 
ber 31, 1744. O. S. — was baptized into the death of Jesus 
Christ October 6th, 1773, by Brother Edward Thorp." 

"Wednesday, October 6th, 1774, was through baptism re- 
ceived into the congregation upon her sick bed, a married 
woman, Elizabeth Rhodes, wife of Samuel Dodson. 

Note. — Observe here that a year had elapsed from the 
date of baptism and the reception into the congregation, which 
custom was probably a rule of the Moravian Church govern- 
ment. 

"Monday, April 17th, 1786, were received into the So- 
ciety, the single woman, Abigail Dodson, and the 'great girls' 
Rebecca Weiss and Elizabeth Rhodes Dodson." 

Note. — The Abigail Dodson thus mentioned was the In- 
dian captive, who after her rescue was placed in the care of 
the Moravians for her education, whereby she became identified 
with them. The "great girl" Elizabeth was living in 1867 
at the age of 84, by the name oi Betsy Van Horn, widow of 
Isaac Van Horn, in Huntington Township, Luzerne County, 
Penna. 

Samuel Dodson and Richard, and some of the Rhodes rel- 
atives, owned adjoining lands in Penn Township, Northamp- 
ton County, a map of which lands is in the possession of the

author. After the death of Samuel his children followed their 
uncles to Luzerne County and permanently settled there, and 
from them also has issued a long line of worthy descendants, 
whose tabulated history will follow in regular line of descent 
and various family alliances.

Sketch. 

Simeon P. Vallerchamp was the son of Azima, a noble- 
man of rank and influence in the royal court of France. When 
Simeon was young they resided in Paris, where he was finely 
educated in the demands of the day and times, especially in 
languages and literature, being able to read and write in seven 
languages. He came to America with General Lafayette and 
took part in the War of the Revolution, and was on the staff 
of Lafayette. He was wounded at the battle of Monmouth 
and carried balls in his body as long as he lived, they finally 
causing his death very suddenly. After the war he returned 
to Paris and remained two years. On his return to this coun- 
try his ship encountered a British warship, and in the attack, 
when he found his ship would be lost, he jumped overboard 
and swam ashore, losing his all, but found refuge and aid. 
He returned to this country soon after. 

He married, first Janica Bertrand, daughter of General Ber- 
trand, who then lived near Philadelphfa. By this union he had 
several children. His second wife was Hannah Dodson, one 
child being the result of this union, Rev. Azima Vallerchamp, 
who was twenty years of age when his father died. He 
inherited a fine mind, and early became an earnest student and 
mastered several languages. He taught school for some years. 
After his marriage he embarked in the business of merchandiz- 
ing, keeping for a time a general store. Btut this was not in 
accord with the natural bent of his mind. He then studied 
dentistry, in which he was very successful for many years, 
adding to this a very useful career as a lay minister in both 
the Methodist and Evangelical churches. He continued his 
literary culture through life, accumulating a fine library. He 
founded Sunday schools, and otherwise encouraged and aided 
in forming libraries for the general education, mental culture 
and taste among the young. He was of genial and winning 
disposition, always cheerful and kind, and as a lecturer and 
preacher was most earnest and eloquent. An attack of malaria 
in connection with chronic heart disease, after a very brief 
illness, ended his useful career when in the prime of life, aged 
forty-nine years. His wife was of Quaker stock, a descend- 
ant of the Penningtons, of Philadelphia, and, through them, 
of Wm. Penn. 

The following little poem was written by Mrs. Valler-

champ, his widow, when she was eighty years of age, and is 
pubHshed by request of a daughter: 



"Watching for the Morning/' 

The morning light is dawning, 

The Day Star from on high 
Shines bright along my pathway 

While passing to the sky. 
The fields of endless pleasure 

By faith I now explore, 
And see the palm trees waving 

On that far distant shore. 

The streets of that bright city 

Are richly paved with gold ; 
The Tree of Life is blooming. 

Its beauties are untold. 
The fountain's ever flowing 

From underneath the throne; 
Those joys were bought so dearly 

Through Jesus' blood alone. 

He saves me ; oh ! he saves me ; 

His dying love's so true; 
In every hour of danger 

He leads me safely through. 
Oh, will He count me worthy, 

When worlds on worlds shall meet, 
To cast my crown before Him, 

And worship at His feet. 

We feast upon a Saviour's love 

In fellowship so sweet ; 
The height and depth we ne'er shall know 

Till 'round His Throne we meet.

Collateral Sketch. 

Charles Philip Swengle. The Swengle family are direct 
descendants of the Zwinglis of Switzerland, of which Huld- 
reich Zwingli, the great Swiss reformer, was one. Two mem- 
bers of that family settled in Germany. Three of their de- 
scendants, brothers, John Nicholas, Michael and George 
Swengle, December 3rd, 1740, embarked for America on the 
ship "Samuel," of which Hugh Percy was captain. Michael 
and George settled in Berks County, Pa., and John Nicholas 
nearer Philadelphia. He was driven from his home by the 
Indians and finally settled near Selinsgrove, Pa., in 1775. 

A slight change of spelling from the original gives the 
name as written above. 

John Swengle, born 3, 24, 1805, (son of Michael, born 
7, 19, 1774, and Esther Hassinger Swengle, born 5, 28, 1777), 
married Sarah Miller, b. 11, 21, 1810. John Swengle died 
II, 28, 1875, and Sarah, 10, 8, 1841. 

— Their Children Were — 
Charles Philip, who married Sarah Jane Vallerchamp, as 
noted in chart (2868).

Mill on the Mahoning Creek, Lehigh County, Pa., April 29, 
1780. The Gilbert and Pearl families, with some others, in 
all fifteen persons, were taken captives at the same time. 
Abigail's family lived a short distance up the Mahoning Creek 
from the mill. She was sent to the mill very early in the 
morning soon after daylight on horseback. She was then 
nearly thirteen years of age. The first person to greet her on 
arriving there was an Indian, who came out of the house and 
at once commanded her to dismount. She soon perceived 
that all the people living near were either captives or dead,, 
and none left to assist her to escape. Soon another Indian 
came with his tomahawk held threateningly before her, while 
the first one took her from the saddle and bound her to pre- 
vent escape. They loaded the horse with goods taken from 
the house, which was soon fired, as was also the mill and other 
outbuildings. 

The families captured were Quakers, and non-resistants 
in principle, and for this reason probably their lives were 
spared. Having seized all the horses near, the Indians were 
enabled to carry off clothing and provisions for their journey. 
They started at once for the Susquehanna River, up which 
by Indian paths, avoiding settled portions, they hastened. 
They reached the river at or near Shickshinny, crossed over, 
passed through and burned the buildings and saw mills there 
from which the Austin family had been driven by the Indians

two years previous. And thence by a well known Indian path 
some distance back of the river they made their way to the 
Genesee Valley. They remained there three years. During 
the period of her captivity Abigail lived with five different 
tribes and learned their languages. The tribe she was last 
with moved from the Genesee Valley to Grand River in Can- 
ada. The sufferings and hardships endured during the first 
years of her captivity were very severe sometimes nearly 
starved, at one time being without food for three days. This 
told on her future life, becoming a cripple from rhemuatism 
because of exposure. She was finally sold to an Indian or 
half-breed of another nation, named De Goyer, with whom 
she fared much better. Her new master had corn fields, 
orchards and cattle. In the summer the cattle were taken to 
pasture land near Niagara Falls, where Abigail was sent to 
take care of them. Here she was betrothed in 1785 by her 
adopted parents td a young Indian, but she was fortunate 
enough to meet some fur traders, to whom she was able to 
make known her name and that of her parents, and begged 
them to try and let her friends know and rescue her. This 
they faithfully performed. Thomas Dodson, who was either 
her uncle or cousin, undertook the mission of her release, and 
after danger and difficulty succeeded in finding her. De Goyer 
claimed her as his purchased property and refused to give her 
up, finally demanding a ransom in gold, but finally compro- 
mised by accepting the horse, saddle and bridle which was 
provided for her journey home. So with one horse for both, 
which was a borrowed one, after a captivity of over five years, 
in her Indian costume, she started with her rescuer and faithful 
guide to home and friends. They reached the Susquehanna 
River at Towanda. There they disposed of or returned the 
norse, procured a boat and paddled down the river to Shick- 
shinny, and there again borrowed a horse and passed over 
the mountains to their home in the Mahoning Valley, reaching 
it in December, 1785, after an absence of five years and eight 
months. She was then eig'hteen years of age and was placed 
for some time in the Moravian schools at Bethlehem. Mon- 
day, April 17th, 1786, she was received into the Moravian 
Society. She with the other children, after the father's death, 
settled in Luzerne County, Pa. She married Peter Brink and 
was respected and beloved by all who knew her. She lived to 
a ripe old age, esteemed for her amiability? and Christian 
graces.

Sketch. 

John Dodson, the oldest living son of Samuel and Eliza- 
beth Rhodes Dodson, after the death of his father, became 
practically the head and representative of this branch of the 
family line. At the ag-e of twenty-one he left the place of his 
birth, in the Mahoning Valley, Penn Township, Northampton 
County, and moved to Huntington Township, Luzerne County, 
where he purchased and settled upon a farm which he contin- 
ued to occupy during his long life, and which is still in posses- 
sion of his descendants. In 1797 he married the daughter of 
Stephen Harrison, who had recently emigrated to this section 
of Luzerne, from Canaan Litchfield County, Connecticut. Of 
this union were born eleven children. His wife, Clarissa, 
died in 1820, eight of the eleven children surviving her. He 
soon after married Soiphronia Monroe, daughter of Nathaji 
Monroe, a native of the same State and county as his first wife. 
She dying in 1841, left him nine children. 

He was an active and industrious man, full of energy and 
good judgment, and greatly valued and admired by his neigh- 
bors, friends and acquaintances for his sterling worth and 
integrity. He took especial interest in public affairs and in 
promoting the welfare of the community among whom he 
dwelt, aiding greatly in securing and maintaining both public 
and private schools, in the opening-, extension and improvement 
of public roads, and in the encouragement of local industries. 

For many years he held the office of justice of the peace 
by the appointment of several Governors of the State, irre- 
spective of parties. After the office became elective, by almost 
unanimous choice of the citizens of the township he continued 
to serve them, until advancing years made it necessary to de- 
cline further service. In politics he was an ardent "old line 
Whig," until the organization of the Republican party, when 
he espoused its priciples and its cause. 

His wise counsel and advice were eagerly sought by his 
neighbors and acquaintances, and freely given. His hospi- 
tality was proverbial, while his unbounded charity to the poor 
and unfortunate was limited only by his means. No appli- 
cant left his presence without substantial assistance. Withal 
he was a perfect specimen of the gentleman of the "old school," 
and was known by his stately mien, dignified appearance and 
neatness of person, as "Gentleman John." 

This sketch is largely taken from an article by his son, 
Charles M. Dodson, of Bethlehem.

Sketch. 



Dr. John N. Weston was born in Norwich, Connecticut. 
He came to Towanda in the winter of 1813-14, but only re- 
mained until the following spring, teaching the art of pen- 
manship meanwhile. He studied medicine afterwards and 
began practicing in Huntington Township, Luzerne County, 
where he married in 1822, Nancy Dodson, daughter of John 
Dodson and Clarissa Harrison. In 1823 he returned with his 
wife to Towanda, where he began his professional career, and 
made it his home for the remainder of his busy life. He 
soon acquired an extensive practice and a large circle of friends 
which his amenity of manners in all his personal and profes- 
sional intercourse was well calculated to increase. Instead of 
coldly performing his professional duties, it was really a work 
of love for him to alleviate the ills of others. He spared 
neither health nor strength, nor avoided cold, or rain or 
storm when a suffering patient needed his aid. In this way he 
early impaired his health, and by slow degrees undermined 
his constitution, which made him during the last years of his 
life subject to frequent attacks of illness. 

His active professional life did not prevent his taking 
a deep interest in everything devised for the good of the com- 
munity. , He spent the last years of his life in a hoitse which 
he built, which is still standing and occupied, in a suburaban 
village named "Weston" in his honor. Dr. Weston was one 
of the charter members of Christ Episcopal Church Vestry, 
Towanda, and a faithful member of the same through his

life. His wife, Nancy Dodson Weston, who survived him 
for forty years, was also a devoted member of the same 
church. Soon after marriage she went with her husband to 
their new home in Towanda. Here she spent her happy life 
and reared her family of seven children, four of whom sur- 
vived her. She was a most kind and devoted mother, gentle 
and tender-hearted, and beloved not only by her family and 
relatives, but by all who knew her. Her memory was remark- 
able, and she would often recall and relate events that hap- 
pened in her early childhood, and most interestingly of the 
encounters of the early settlers with the Indians. Poetry 
learned in her youth she readily repeated, and upon the cur- 
rent events of the day she was well informed. Reading was 
a great pleasure, until the last two years of her life, when her 
eyesight failed and then she depended on others to read to 
her. The last two winters of her life she spent in her To- 
wanda home, built by her husband sixty years before. But 
she loved best her country home in the summer, in the Weston 
village, and to do so again she had returned there but twto 
weeks before her death. She had longed to see the budding 
trees and flowers, but she was suddenly stricken with pneu- 
monia which her advanced age and failing strength was not 
able to withstand. Through it all her mind was clear and 
bright and her faith unmoved. She was followed to her last 
earthly resting place by four generations, brothers, children, 
grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was laid by the 
side of her husband in Riverside cemetery, Towanda, where 
the comforting burial service of her church was read by Rev. 
Mr. Wright, her pastor. This tribute to her memory was writ- 
ten by a granddaughter, Mrs. Macfarland.

Dr. Henry Weston, the son of Dr. John Norris and 
Nancy {nee Dodson) his wife, was born at Towanda, Pa., De- 
cember 29th, 1835. His father was the leading physician of 
the vicinity and was also active in politics, serving his county 
in official positions. In the death of Dr. Henry Weston there 
passed one to whose fertile mind the dentistry of the past thirty 
years was not a little indebted for devices and preparations 
which simplify and facilitate practice. A very skillful dentist, 
he knew the points of difficulty and applied his mind to mak- 
ing them easy for others. Personally a modest, rather diffident 
man, he was averse to notoriety, but his works spoke for him

branches of practice. He brought to the operative practice a 
sympathetic nature, a gentleness of manipulation and a delicacy 
of touch which won for him many clients in his profession. 
He possessed the genius of invention, and in attaining an end 
was patient, j>ersistent, untiring. No matter how great the 
work, he never wearied until it was brought to a successful 
issue. 

He began the study of dentistry in Baltimore. He be- 
gan his independent practice at Harper's Ferry, Va., remain- 
ing there until the time of the John Brown raids in 1859. He 
then went West for a short time, but returned to his native 
town, where he practiced for several years, but finally settled in 
Philadelphia, where he combined practice and invention in 
several lines. In the promotion of one of these inventions he 
spent some years in England. 

In character and life he was a man of kindly disposition, 
generous and helpful, giving freely of his stores of practical 
knowledge, and delighting to aid students and young practi- 
tioners over difficult problems. He was a devoted husband 
and fond father, and his home life was consequently ideal. 
His courage and cheerfulness never deserted him, even 'mid 
the long and painful illness of over a year preceding his death 
in July, 1906.

war; participated in following engagements: Pittsburg Land- 
ing, Corinth, siege of Vicksburg, and with Sherman from At- 
lanta to Savannah. He returned home with shattered health, 
lived for a short time at Red Wing, Wis., then returned to 
Berlin, where he died in 1867, leaving a wife and infant son. 

The son, George D. La Bar, after death of his father, 
went with his widowed mother to Zumbrota, Minnesota, where 
he attended school. After this, when very young, he was em- 
ployed by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Louis R. R. at Zum- 
brota Station as agent. He remained in this employ until a 
position was offered in the First National Bank of Brainard, 
Minnesota, which he accepted January 13, 1783. He passed 
through all the bank positions from check collector to presi- 
dent of the same in 1903, which office he now holds. He was 
also city treasurer for seven years.

Sketch. 

Isaac Taylor Dodson began a very active and energetic 
life when very young. His first prominent notice came from 
the fact of his taking and finishing a contract for the building 
of a bridge across the Susquehanna River at Berwick, Pa., 
when but eighteen years of age. This was considered at the 
time a most wonderful achievement for a man of his years, and 
it was the starting point of his life. Soon after this he went

to Mauch Chunk and entered the employ of Erskine Hazzard, 
who was then the general manager of the Lehigh Coal and 
Navigation Company, which position he filled acceptably for 
a number of years. After this he embarked in the business 
of contracting, in which he was very successful. August 3d, 
1835, he was commissioned by Governor John Andrew Shultz 
as Colonel of the 128th Regiment of the militia of the State, 
to which position he was re-elected for several years. Novem- 
ber loth, 1 85 1, he was elected Associate Judge of Carbon 
County, Pa., of the Court of Common Pleas, and his commis- 
sion was signed by Governor Wm. H. Johnson on the above 
date. Later on he was re-elected for another term. He was 
a most active and influential citizen and highly esteemed in 
the community in which he had his home, for his integrity 
and worth.

Collateral Sketch — Franklin Line. 

This family line is a very ancient one, mention of which 
in England is made as early as 1412 by Sir John Fortescue, 
as follows : "That wealthy freeholders were commonly 
called Franklins." Chaucer and Spencer, early Anglo-Saxon 
writers, both speak of "a country gentleman" as "a Franklin." 
It has also been thought to have come from France — from the 
''Franks," or probably from a free line, a line free from the 
vassalage common in days of old, and hence Frankline, 
adopted as a surname. 

The Franklins in this country, who are largely allied by 
marriage with the Dodsons, claim a relationship with Dr. Ben- 
jamin Franklin, the philosopher and statesman. 

The ancestry of the Franklins dates back to 1555, by rec- 
ords preserved in the registers of marriages and burials, in 
the parish of Ecton, Northamptonshire, England. Thomas, 
the grandfather of Benjamin, was born in Ecton in 1598. He 
left four sons, who grew to manhood, Thomas, John, Benja- 
min and Josiah. 

Josiah married young, and with his wife and three child- 
ren came to New England in 1685, four other children being 
born in this country by this first marriage. Josiah married as 
his second wife Abiah Folger, daughter of Peter Folger, an 
early New England settler. By this union ten children were 
born, Dr. Benjamin being the youngest son. He states that 

222

he found in these early records in Ecton parish that he was 
the young-est son of the youngest son for five generations. Of 
these children Benjamin mentions the names of only two broth- 
ers, James and John. 

His uncle, Benjamin, next older than his father, came also 
to New England and settled in Boston, who was his godfather, 
and for whom he was named. 

Dr. Benjamin was born in Boston, January 6th, 1706; 
died in Philadelphia, April 17th, 1790. His uncle Benjamin 
died in Boston in 1728. He lived to a great age, but left one 
son, Samuel, the only survivor of ten children. This son, 
Samuel, had an only child, a son, who left no son to carry 
down the Franklin name. 

Dr. Benjamin had two sons, William and Francis Fol- 
ger, who died in childhood. Dr. Benjamin, while in England 
in 1 77 1, addressed his autobiography to this son, Willian",, as 
Governor of New Jersey. William had one son, William 
Temple Franklin, who died without issue. His daughter, 
Sarah, the only one mentioned in his history, married Richard 
Bache in 1767, leaving numerous descendants. 

A footnote to a history of Dr. Benjamin Franklin, pub- 
lished in 1855, states "that there was not living a single male 
descendant of Dr. Benjamin's grandfather Thomas who bears 
the name of Franklin." This statement must be an error, 
from the fact that there is a large line of Franklins whose 
ancestor settled in Luzerne County, Pa., with the Connecticut 
settlers, who formed quite a large colony there in the latter 
part of 1700, during or immediately after the War of the 
Revolution, and who have always claimed a near relationship 

Col. John Franklin, Sr., came from England to New Eng- 
land about 1750, and settled first at B'ramford, Connecticut, 
and later at Litchfield, from which place he came with a com- 
pany of Connecticut colonists to Luzerne County in 1791. 
Colonel John's title may have been gained in the French and 
Indian wars of 1756 and 1757, which may very likely be 
proved by investigation. 

He claimed to be a first cousin of Dr. Benjamin Frank- 
lin, and this tradition is handed down and firmly believed by 
many living descendants of the name, both male and female. 
He was over eighty years of age when he came to Luzerne

County, with his family. He died December 25, 1800. He 
was thus contemporary in years and time with Dr. Benjamin. 

As the descendants of two of Dr. Franklin's uncles are 
very clearly given, it is not at all improbable that said Colonel 
John was the son of Dr. Franklin's uncle John. 

The children of Col. John and his wife Keziah Pierce are 
as follows : 

1. Susannah. Married Stephen Harrison, Sr., who 

came to Luzerne from Litchfield, Conn., also in 
1 79 1, and was nearly eighty-two years of age at his 
death. Her daughter, Clarissa, married John Dod- 
son, son of Samuel Dodson. Her brother, Stephen 
Harrison, married Mary Dodson, sister of John, 
whom she married. 

The Harrisons are of the same descent as the two 
Harrison Presidents of the United States. 

2. Colonel John Harrison, Jr., 3 Samuel, 4Silas. 

2. Colonel John Franklin, Jr., was a soldier in the War 

of the Revolution. 

3. Samuel Franklin married Mary Ransom, daughter of 

Captain Samuel Ransom, born 1737, who was killed 
in the Wyoming massacre at Forty Fort in 1778. 

4. Silas Franklin. 

5. Amos Franklin, b. 11, 13, 1771 ; d. ii, 4, 1836. Mar- 

ried Margaret Steel, d. 3, 10, 1851. Their son, John 
Franklin, 3rd, b. 12, 2, 1862; d. 12, 15, 1871. Mar- 
ried Sarah Dodson. See Nos. (3386) and 3593. 
Daughter of Joseph, brother of John Dodson above 
mentioned. 

6. Jeremiah died in childhood. 

7. Abigail Franklin married a son of Darius and Lydia 

(Wood worth) Callender, early Connecticut settlers, 
and whose two daughters, Abigail and Cynthia Cal- 
lender became in turn the first and second wives of 
another John Dodson, son of James. 

8. Lucy Franklin, married an Amesbury. 

9. Mary Franklin, married a Fellows. 
10. Abiah Franklin, married Isaac Tubbs. 

Descendants of all these have married and inter- 
married with Franklins, Harrisons and Dodsons, to 
the present time.

Special Note. 

Three sons of John Franklin and Sarah Dodson, 
viz — 

(3598) Stephen Dodson Frankhn, (3600) Charles, and (3'^Q3) 
Joseph, were soldiers in the Civil War, as noted 
in Genealogy Record. After the war Stephen was 
in the employ of both State and National g-overn- 
ment as secret service expert, and had much to do 
in the famous Molly Maguire case in the coal re- 
gions. 

(3596) Benjamin Franklin, the oldest son, and brother of 
those just named, was an important aid to the gov- 
ernment during the strenuous times of the Civil War. 
His frequent correspondence with the Hon. Wm. H. 
Seward, and preserved by his son, shows much of 
the important service rendered. Colonel Lafayette 
Baker, in his history of men and events in those 
war times, mentions him frequently, and paid a 
glowing tribute to him for his successful work for 
the citizens of his country and the War Depart- 
ment. 

He began his public career of usefulness in the 
City of Philadelphia in 1854. When the city dis- 
tricts were consolidated he was appointed High Con- 
stable by Robert T. Conrad, the first Mayor, which 
was the highest office in the gift of the Mayor at 
that time to bestow. He was reappointed by Mayor 
Henry, and later, under Mayor Morton McMichael, 
he became chief of the detectives. In 1863 he ran 
down the masters of Bark Ai, who had loaded that 
vessel with guns and shells at the League Island 
navy yard, intending to take aboard gunpowder at 
Wilmington, Del., to be turned over to the Confed- 
erates. In 1865 Mr. Franklin was active in raising 
troops for General Hancock's Corps, collecting the 
last draft of men made in Philadelphia. He was 
also in charge o the investigation of the Molly Ma- 
t giiire murder conspiracy; also of the famous Whit- 
aker will case, resulting in the imprisonment for ten 
years of an attorney and several others. In 1870 
he established a detective agency with correspo^nd-

ents and agencies all over this country, Canada, and 
in fact all over the world. He was succesful in 
many of the most celebrated criminal cases in the 
country. For thirty years he was special detective 
ag-ent of the Pennsylvania and Vanderbilt Railroads, 
and it would require quite a volume to record the 
events and success of his busy life for his city, State 
and country. Withal he had hosts of friends, and 
in all his dealings he was the honorable gentleman, 
ever striving for the good of his fellow-men and the 
putting down of evil. He was also a prominent Ma- 
son and one of the early members of the Union 
League. 

His brother, Stephen, was also long associated 
with him in much important work. The agency is 
still in active and successful work, with his oldest 
son. Malcolm, as chief, who became associated with 
his father from 1886. 

Two other sons are professional men, Dr. Clinton, 
a dentist, and Dr. Clarence, a practicing physician.

Explanatory Note. 
Researches in the history of the Dodson family in this 
country from a common English ancestry, began several years 
ago, and following natural leadings, first from England to 
New Jersey, thence into Pennsylvania, and next into Mary- 
land, opened up a wide field of interest. During a very sub- 
stantial progress in the latter State, the writer came in touch 
with Dr. Charles Marion Dodson, of Baltimore. From that 
time Dr. Dodson has been mutually interested and a co-la- 
borer in the completion of the Maryland history of the family. 
He has also contributed the introductory, historical and bi- 
ographical sketch of the Maryland branch. Following this is 
the mutually prepared and tabulated line of descent in chro- 
nological sequence, family by family, from the head of each to 
its latest generation. 

Rev. T. p. Ege. 



Introduction. 

In the research and preparation of the history of the 
Maryland Dodson branch, though begun independently by 
each of the writers whose names are underwritten, the writer 
of this historical sketch gratefully acknowledges his indebted- 
ness to Rev. T. P. Ege, for a great part of the labor in tracing 
and tabulating the same, and especially for the location and 
data of the English ancestry of the Maryland branch and their 
descendants. 

A short time since, after a correspondence of fifteen years, 
in which mutual exchanges of data were made, we met for the 
first time. After discussing the results of our labors, it was 
mutually agreed to incorporate our combined work in one vof- 
ume, Rev. T. P. Ege assuming the responsibility of the pub- 
lication, while each receives due recognition therein.

It is not our purpose to minutely investigate the various 
branches of the Dodsons in England before their advent into 
America. From references quoted it is known that the family 
figured prominently in different periods of English history. 
Their crests and coats of arms are still preserved, and a de- 
scendant of the Maryland family now residing in England 
has recently been granted with some modification, the arms 
and crest of his Yorkshire ancestors. 

There is no claim that the Dodsons came to this coun- 
try boasting of a titled ancestry, but came as settlers, and just 
such persons as v^ere best fitted for the development of the 
country's crudeness, and fit it for those who were to succeed 
them. From the different English branches of the family 
there came representatives at various times in the early set- 
tlement of our country, settling in New England, Pennsylva- 
nia, Maryland and Virginia. Among such were the descend- 
ants of the Yorkshire family, of which Thomas Dodson be- 
came the founder of the Maryland branch, and while many 
of his descendants were men of successful enterprise, wealth 
and prominence, there generally co-existed in the early gen- 
erations of those who settled and remained on the shore of the 
Chesapeake Bay, the shipbuilder, the sea captain, and the 
sailor.

Brief Historical and Biographical Sketch of Six Gen- 
erations OF the Maryland Branch of the Dodson 
Family^ from Daniel and Susannah Dodson^ of 
Knaresborough^ Yorkshire^ England. 



(By C. Marion Dodson, M. D., Baltimore, Md.) 



Thomas Dodson, in company with an older brother, John, 
and sister, Mary, and a small colony of Quakers, came to Bur- 
lington, New Jersey, in 1677, and although coming under the 
influence of William Penn, they antedated his coming to Penn- 
sylvania by about five years. John became the head of the 
Pennsylvania branch. Mary married Richard Boyes in 1683, 
and remained in New Jersey, where descendants of the name 
still reside. Thomas, born October 19, 1669, was the seventli 
child and youngest son of Daniel and Susannah Dodson, of 
Knaresborough, Yorkshire, England. He married in Bur- 
lington, N. J., July 16, 1698, Katharine Savill, daughter of 
John Savill, of Snape, England. Some time after his mar- 
riage Thomas settled in Talbot County, Md., on the eastern 
shore of the Chesapeake Bay. By this marriage there were 
said to be three children, John, Robert and Susannah. Bur- 
lington records name this John, and a Virginia family record 
claim this John, as their ancestor from Maryland. 

Records of St. Peter's Parish, Talbot County, show that 
Robert Dodson married Mary Brumell, August i8th, 1727, 
and that Susannah married William Clark in 1728. An ad- 
ministrator's account of Talbot County, preserved at Annapolis, 
shows that this Robert Dodson, for his wife, administered upon 
the estate of her father, Abraham Brumell, April 15th, 1730. 

A similar record shows that Robert Hall administered on 
March 19th, 1745, upon the estate of said Robert Dodson, 
stating also that among other enterprises Robert was a builder 
of sailing vessels. 

The record of John, oldest son of Thomas, who married 
Lucy Long, and soon after his marriage settled in Virginia, 
has been traced by Rev. T. P. Ege, and will follow the tabu- 
lated genealogical descent of Robert and Mary Brumell Dod- 
son. 

The only child known as resulting from this union of 
Robert and Mary Birumell Dodson was a son, Thomas, born 

278 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

1728, and died after 1770. This Thomas, 2nd, married a wife 
whose name was Esther (family name not given). Their 
children were Elizabeth, James, John, Mary, Robert, 2nd, Jo- 
seph and Thomas, 3rd. 

Thomas, 2nd, was a prominent citizen of his county, a 
gentleman of the "old school," a member of St. Peter's Parish 
of the English Colonial Church, but liberal in his ideas of re- 
ligious worship, and when Methodism was introduced into his 
section, his youngest son, Thomas, became one of its early itin- 
erant ministers. 

Robert Dodson, 2nd, son of Thomas and Esther Dodson, 
was born December 6th, 1762, and died April loth, 1824. He 
married Elizabeth Auld January 20th, 1785, from which union 
were born William, Sarah, Eliza, Robert, 3rd, Edward Auld, 
Edward, Ann Maria, and Emily L. Dodson. He married for 
his second wife a widow Hutton, but had no issue by this 
marriage. The life of this Robert was a strenuous one, not 
only preserved as family legend in the memory of his descend- 
ants, but at this late period made more evident by the finding 
of his old ledger of an hundred years ago, portraying in a 
clear statement the various operations in which he was engaged, 
his association with events of that j^eriod, and the people of 
the day and generation among whom he lived. He farmed, 
traded in the general products of his region, dealt in real es- 
tate, and took hold of any enterprise that offered an opportu- 
nity for a successful return. He engaged largely in mer- 
chandising, and the "Dodson Store" was one of the well known 
institutions oi his town. Later on in life he became interested 
in education and was largely instrumental in having the child- 
ren of the community properly educated. Co-existing with his 
various pursuits he owned several vessels that traded on the 
Bay, among which was one in which he was specially inter- 
ested, the schooner "Edward," which was fitted for both 
freigtit and passengers, and plied between St. Michael's and 
Baltimore. The trips of the Edward during 18 12- 13 are 
faithfully recorded in the old ledger; what each trip paid, and 
what were the attending expenses. This account shows that 
in 1 81 2 the vessel made thirty- four trips to and from Balti- 
more, starting early in March and ending the last of Decem- 
ber, at which time the vessel was under the command of his 
son William, who made such a good showing that year that the 
youthful commander bought the half of the vessel on credit, 

279 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

and during the time William was in the U. S. Navy the vessel's 
profits paid the bill. The "Edward" in 1813, under another 
captain, made twenty-seven trips from St. Michael's to Balti- 
more, which, under the circumstances, was truly remarkable, 
as the British swarmed the Bay, and were especially active on 
that portion of it over which he sailed, escaping the fate that 
befell so many others of the same occupation. Yet in spite of 
such danger and interruption, the vessel began her trips early 
in March, 18 13, and continued them with marked regularity 
to the close of the following December, with the exception of 
a 40-day blockade in the harbor of St. Michaels by the enemy, 
during which time the battle with the British occurred at that 
place. An interesting item of the "Old Ledger" account is 
worthy of mention. A freight charge is shown against Lloyd 
Nichols for pork and fish, July 19, 1813, who is credited in 
August of the same year with loss of the same. An explana- 
tory note reading, "Spoiled on account of the blockade by the 
enemy." This Robert Dodson was especially active during 
this period of the British invasion in aiding his section, distrib- 
uting arms to the people for their defense in the threatened dis- 
tricts, having also one of his vessels fitted out and armed as a 
guard boat. 

He died at the age of 62, and was buried in the old Meth- 
odist cemetery at St. Michael's. 

William Dodson, previously mentioned in association with 
his father's sailing and trading interests, was the oldest son of 
the last-named Robert Dodson, was born at St. Michael's, Md., 
in 1786, and died in Baltimore in 1833. He married Amelia 
S. Brown, and by this marriage had eight children, viz., Rob- 
ert, William, Elizabeth, Helen, Amelia, Leonidas, Julia and 
Edward. 

He was sent to the best schools which the time and place 
afforded and was designed for a very different life from the 
one he subsequently pursued. His father had planned for him 
a liberal education, and for some time kept him diligently 
at his studies. Soon, however, the sailor spirit developed, and 
quite early in life he gave up his studies and began the career 
which his spirit craved. Once he made a voyage across the 
Atlantic as mate of a ship, but at the urgency of his father he 
gave up his desire for ocean navigation, and thus at the be- 
ginning of his more eventful life we find him in charge of his 
father's packet schooner "Edward." This vessel, while tem- 

280 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

porarily under his command, sailing from Baltimore July 26th, 
181 3, outsailed the British pursuers and escaped into St. Mich- 
ael's harbor, which was attacked a few days later by the 
British. 

On this vessel at the same time was his intimate friend, 
James Martin, and a number of armed associates. When the 
"Edward" returned from this exciting trip William Dodson at 
once took charge of the "lookout boat" and watched the move- 
ments of the British vessels which had assembled off "Kent 
Point." On their approach to St. Michael's for the attack, 
he sailed his vessel into the harbor and anchored her alongside 
of other vessels that had taken refuge there. At the request 
of General Benson, who commanded the militia assembled 
there for defense, he took command of Parrott's Point Battery 
in an earthwork erected to guard the town. This battery de- 
feated the British on August loth, 1813, in their attempt to 
capture St. Michael's and destroy the vessels in refuge there, 
as well as those on the stocks in process of building. The fire 
from this battery killed and wounded so many of the British 
that they were thoroughly defeated and driven off, and the 
town and shipping saved. 

After the defense of St. Michael's he and his friend Mar- 
tin, who was with him in that defense, joined the U. S. Navy 
under Commodore Joshua Barney, whose flotilla, in which he 
and his friend were appointed sailing masters, sailed from Bal- 
timore in May, 18 14, and fought furiously with the British on 
the Bay, till the enemy landed in large force at Benedict on 
the Patuxent River, and commenced operations against Wash- 
ington City. 

This flotilla was purposely destroyed on the Patuxent 
River to prevent its falling into the enemy's hands. 

We next find William and his friend Martin standing 
side by side with their gallant commodore, trying to stem the 
British advance at Bladensburg. Here the enemy was suc- 
cessful, Washington was taken, Capitol buildings burned and 
valuable records destroyed. Martin was desperately wounded 
in the battle at Bladensburg and during the general confusion 
at Washington William Dodson took his wounded friend and 
conveyed him in an open boat across the Chesapeake Bay to 
St. Michael's and left him in charge of his friends. He then 
hastened to Baltimore, and with the fragment of Barney's 
men assisted in its defense, being stationed during the attack 

281 



DoDSON Genealogy. • 

in a small battery close to Fort Covington, which assisted in 
driving the enemy back in their attempt to take Fort McHenry 
in the rear. 

When peace was declared he left the navy and returned 
to St. Michael's, where he again resumed his previous occupa- 
tion and successfully pursued it for many years. On one of 
these trips to Baltimore he died suddenly on his vessel as she 
laid at her wharf. His remains having been recently disin- 
terred from their first resting lace, were taken to his native 
town and buried in the "Dodson Lot" of Mt. Olivet cemetery, 
St. Michaels, Md. In this sacred spot may now be seen a 
granite tablet, with rough rock finish, bearing the following in- 
scription : 

TO THE MEMORY OF 

WILLIAM DODSON. 

Born 1786. Died 1833. 

A Sailing Master in the U. S. Navy. 

''He commanded a private armed vessel furnished by his 
father in the early part of the war of 1812, that guarded the 
waters of the Eastern Bay and its tributaries. He was in 
charge of Parrott's Point Battery August loth, 18 13, where 
the British were defeated in their attack upon the town of St. 
Michael's. He fought under Commodore Barney at Bladens- 
burg, and participated in the defense of Baltimore at Fort Mc- 
Henry, September, 1814." 



Robert Auld Dodson, son of William and Amelia Brown 
Dodson, was born at St. Michael's, November 6th, 1808, and 
died at the old homestead in his native town in 1883 in the 
presence of his family, all of whom were then living. He 
married Hester Ann Keithley, of Baltimore, January 24th, 
1833, and by this union eight children were born, William 
Keithley, Robert Auld, Richard Stearns, Henry Clay, Charles 
Marion, Amelia Jane, Melancthon, and Hester Eugene. 

Robert A. Dodson began the life of a sailor when quite 
young. The first vessel he commanded was the "Amelia," 
owned by his father. For several years he continued with this 
pursuit for his father, who at that time carried on a lucrative 
business of freight and passenger traffic between St. Michael's 
and Baltimore. 

In 1832 he went as mate on a vessel trading for some 

282 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

time among- the islands of the Caribbean Sea. On one of these 
trips from Turk's Island, laden with salt, his vessel encountered 
a fearful hurricane off Cape Hatteras, and came near being a 
total loss. Two men were swept overboard and lost. The 
vessel was saved, though badly damaged. After his marriage 
he continued to sail from Baltimore until 1836, when he gave 
up long ocean voyages and became captain of the "Sally of 
Wye," sailing between Baltimore and Wye, to which latter 
place he removed and was there employed for three years. 
In 1839 he returned to St. Michael's, his father having died. 
He there at once laid the foundation for larger enterprises, and 
an increased packet business, which continued under his man- 
agement with great success until 1861. He had built in suc- 
cession the following named vessels, ''The William Hamble- 
ton," "Ann Catharine," "Sea Gull," "B. M. Corner," "Amelia" 
and the "William K. Dodson." All these were beautiful 
specimens of sailing craft, the packet boats for passengers in 
particular, which by their number indicated the measure of 
their success, and the amount of travel and freight supplied. 
It was the day before railroads traversed the prosperous penin- 
sula of Eastern Maryland, and very few steamboats plied the 
Chesapeake waters, and it is worthy of mention that this large 
enterprise in sailing craft, under his management, iwas carried 
on with such a degree of care and regularity that never a pas- 
senger 'Was injured or a pound of freight lost. 

The breaking out of the Civil War in 1861, found him in 
command of the steamer "Star" running between St. Michael's 
and Baltimore. Steam navigation was by this time crowding 
out the passenger sailing vessel. With foresight he had dis- 
posed of most O'f his sailing vessels and was negotiating to 
purchase the steamer of which he was in command, when the 
U. S. Government bought her for the Bbrnside Expedition to 
Port Royal, South Carolina. In addition to his nautical ca- 
reer, he was also largely engaged in coal and lumber interests 
in his native town. 

In politics he was an old line Whig, but a strong Union 
man, and loyally supported President Lincoln in those trying 
days of the border States. He was present on Pratt street, 
in Baltimore, during the 19th of April riot when the Massa- 
chusetts troops were assailed by a mob, and for boldly de- 
nouncing this act at the time and scene of its occurrence his life 
was threatened by the excited mob. He sent two sons to de- 

283 



DoDSON Genealogy. 

fend the Union cause during- the Civil War, one in the army 
and one in the navy, while two others of his sons filled civil 
positions under the government. 

During the enlistment and drafting of troops he was ap- 
pointed the enrolling officer for the government in Talbot 
county. He was subsequently appointed postmaster of St. 
Michael's. 

In a brief concluding summary. Robert A. Dodson, both 
in private and public life, was in every way a prominent and 
influential citizen. He was closely identified with the people 
of his town and county and few, if any, enterprises for the 
welfare of his section and people were ever entertained without 
his co-operation and assistance. Early in life he identified 
himself with the Methodist church, and to the day of his 
death was one of its faithful supporters and active workers. 

Following this sketch of the six generations of Maryland 

Dodsons, the tabulated lists of their numerous descendants will 

appear in chronological order.

in August and November, 1733. The years here mentioned, 
and the county in which they resided being the same as the 
early Dodson settlers naturally suggest an error in the spelling, 
an error common in the early days, and that most probably 
they were really Dodsons.

there are two very interesting facts of record made many years 
ago by the late Leonidas Dodson, of Easton, Md. ist. A note 
given to him Nov. 12, 1861, signed by Thomas Dodson, as fol- 
lows : 'T promise to pay or cause to be paid to Charles Gos- 
sage, or his order, on demand, the sum of five pounds, thirteen 
shillings, current money of Maryland." 

Witness my hand this 8th day of October, 1766.

Witness : Henry Banning. 

2nd. A local newspaper contained a reference to this 
"Thomas" as the father of Robert Dodson, who at that time 

285

was a candidate for the Sheriffalty of his county. A Mr. Gib- 
son championed his cause through the press as follows: 
"Among the virtues enumerated of the said Robert was, that 
he was a dutiful son and labored long to support his aged and 
afflicted parents." Said Robert being born in 1762, and his 
younger brother, the Rev. Thomas, born in 1768, by one rec- 
ord, or in 1770 by another record, indicates at once that the 
date of Thomas' death was more likely to have been about or 
after 1780. And also by the fact that Esther, his wife, died 
in 1 80 1, would indicate that Thomas lived to quite an advanced 
aee.

Sketch. 



Richard Stearns Dodson was born at Wye, Talbot County, 
Md. When about two years of age his parents moved to 
St. Michael's, where he grew up. He became a sailor quite 
early in life on one of his father's vessels, and before he was 
of age became captain of the schooner "William K. Dodson," 
which his father had built specially for him. Being ambitious

for a wider sphere of activity, he soon gave up sailing, secured 
a clerkship at the Maltby House, Baltimore, and commenced 
his career as a hotel manager. After several years he went 
next to the Fountain Hotel, a very popular house at that time 
in Baltimore, first as manager and subsequently co-proprietor 
with the late William H. Clabaugh. The opening of German 
street caused the closing up of this hotel. He then took 
charge of the Herdic House, Williamsport, Pa., and Minnequa 
Springs. After two years in this employ he went to Norfolk, 
Virginia, purchased the Atlantic Hotel, made extensive im- 
provements to it, making it one of the largest and most thor- 
oughly equipped hotels in the South. He managed this hotel 
until the wear and tear of a busy life forced him to turn it over 
to his oldest son, Robert A. Dodson, and retired f rom his active 
life and removed to Baltimore. During his life he accumulated 
quite a fortune, not only in real estate in Norfolk, but was also 
a large property owner in Baltimore and in Talbot c ounty. He 
was a member of the Mfethodist Cliurch for many years, a 
member of the Board of Stewards of the First Church in Bal- 
timore, and also of the Board of Trustees of the Woman's Col- 
lege in that city. He died at his home on Charles street ex- 
tended, and was laid to rest in Greenmount cemetery, Balti- 
more.

Sketch. 

William Brown Dodson was born at St. Michael's, Md., 
moved to Baltimore when quite a young man, finding business 
employment there. Subsequently he went to Cincinnati, Ohio. 
For several years he was in command of passenger steamers 
plying between New Orleans and the upper Mississippi River 
and tributaries. Later he had charge of U. S. snag boats, 
and for a number of years was engaged with them in removing 
obstructions and keeping the Mississippi River open to navi- 
gation. While thus engaged he died suddenly and his remains 
were taken to his Cincinnati home for burial. 

His first wife, Emmeline Hambleton, with their first born 
and infant child, was among the ill-fated number who lost 
their lives in the capsizing of the schooner "Thomas Ed- 
ward." 

Edward Leonidas Dodson, son of the above, is the secre- 
tary and treasurer of the American Engineering Co., Spring- 
field, Ohio. He was a soldier in the Civil War, and served 
his country in the dark days of 1861-65, as a member of Co.

Sketch. 

Leonidas Dodson was born in St. Michael's, the home 
town of his ancestors for so many years, October 12th, 1822. 
In his school days he was a bright scholar, where his mother 
persisted in keeping him, though he often begged her to let 
him go out and help earn a part of the family bread. He was 
later a clerk in the store of his uncle, Thomas Auld, to which 
he often trudged in the severe winters in the early morning, 
through trackless snow, to open the store and make the fire. 
While engaged here he spent much time at night teaching the 
famous Frederick Douglass, and helping him on to an educa- 
tion, he being owned as a slave by this uncle. He finally left 
the employ of his uncle and took charge of a school for girls, 
in which he was a very successful teacher, and held in great es- 
teem all through life by those who had been his pupils. After 
this he accepted a position in the Easton National Bank of 
Maryland, where rising by gradual promotions, he spent the 
rest of his active days enjoying the confidence and esteem of 
all with whom he had business relations, not only of bank 
officials, but of the entire community. 

He early became a member of the Methodist Church, 
ever active in its support and upbuilding, holding positions of 
class leader, trustee and steward. He was also a licensed 
local preacher. Gifted with voice and ability he very often exer- 
cised these gifts to the joy and pleasure of those who heard. 
He was twice married and left a numerous family of child- 
ren. He died in the City of Baltimore, where he had gone

for treatment. His remains were taken to Easton, where they 
lay in state in the church of his choice, viewed by hosts of 
sorrowing friends. 

He was buried in Spring Hill cemetery, which owed its 
chief beauty to him who had been the active secretary of the 
association for many years. 

His son, William Patterson Dodson, who has contributed 
this sketch, has been for over twenty years a Methodist mis- 
sionary in Africa. Hei sailed with Bishop Taylor's heroic 
band of pioneer missionaries in 1885 to Angola, remaning 
there for fourteen years before taking his first furlough. He 
followed Bishop Taylor into the wilderness, and writes that he 
spent "many happy days and nights with him in travel and 
labor." He is still at his post under Bishop Hartzell, who 
appointed him presiding elder of the district in which he still 
labors. He also writes that, "after twenty-two years he finds 
himself strong for the work, and by God's blessing, still en- 
abled to endure the hardship of climate and wilderness travel, 
and has been instrumental in the establishment of five nativ^e 
stations through the wilds of Angola, manned by native work- 
ers. He expects in 1908 to take his second furlough and visit 
his native home. 

He married in 1893 Catharine M. MacKensie, of Prince 
Edward Island, and has five children.

Sketch. 

Richard Whatcoat Dodson, while in impaired health and 
seeking rest and benefit, died at "Cape Island." Harriet Styles 
Ball, his wife, was the only daughter of Joseph Ball, of "Rich- 
mond Hall," Philadelphia. Their daughter Sarah was an 
artist of very considerable note, and in this her favorite pur- 
suit spent much of her life in Europe. She inherited her artis- 
tic talents from her father, who in his younger years had at- 
tained marked success. Mother, daughter and son finally set- 
tled in Brighton, England, because of the mother's delicate 
health, where they purchased an attractive home, and where 
both mother and daughter recently deceased. Mr. Richard 
Ball Dodson, though unmarried, continues to reside there.

Sketch. 

Rev. Thomas Dodson, according to Lee's "History of the 
Methodists," entered the itinerant ministry of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church in 1797 and retired from active service in 
1803. 

Reference to the General Minutes of the church for that 
period gives the following particulars respecting his connec- 
tion w^th the Church: Admitted on trial, 1797, and apy- 
pointed to Northampton Circuit, Va. ; continued on trial 1799. 
and appointed to Dorchester Circuit, Md. ; ordained deacon 
1799, and appointed to Somerset County Circuit, Md. ; ap- 
pointed to Delaware Circuit 1800; ordained Elder 1801, and 
appointed to Queen Ann Circuit, Md. ; appointed to Dover, 
Del, Circuit 1802, and located 1803. owing to ill health. He 
finally settled in Strasburg, Lancaster Co., Pa., where both 
himself and wife died in 1826 and were buried in the Meth- 
odist cemeterv there.

Virginia and North Carolina Branches of Maryland 

Branch A. 
In chronological order this portion of the Maryland 
branch, from John, the oldest son of Thomas and Katharine 
Savill Dodson, should precede that as tabulated of the descent 
from Thomas. However, because of the proximity to the 
starting point, whence both the Pennsylvania and Maryland 
branches found their first and largely continuous abiding 
places, it seemed best in the order of sequence as to time and 
place, that this Virginia and North Carolina line of descent 
should follow, the index numbering following on in regular 
order from the same. 



(5 AND 8) John and Lucy Long Dodson Line. 



Sketch. 
(5) I- John Dodson, born in 1699; most probably in New 
Jersey, and settled with his parents in Talbot 
Co., Md. He married there quite early in life, 
and about 1725, with his wife, settled in one 
of the border counties of Virginia. His child- 
ren born in Virginia are as follows.' 

485 GIV: I. Daniel Dodson. 

486 2. Charles. 

487 3. William. 

488 4. James. 

489 5. John. 

And probably daughters. 

This statement is from one of the oldest living descendants 
of Charles, the second son named above, and said statement is 
also a tradition in the Maryland family. 

Daniel, the oldest son, remained in Virginia. Charles 
and William went to North Carolina. No trace or knowledge 
of James and John has been found except a bare mention in a 
brief genealogical table, that if married they left no issue. And 
yet Lucy, a daughter of Charles, married a cousin John 
Dodson, who in all probability was a son of one of these. 

Daniel became the possessor of a large estate of plantation 
and forest lands. He was twice married — name of first wife 
not ascertained ; had issue, but both wife and children died 
early, leaving him alone and childless. In his advanced years 
he married again and settled in Petersburg, Va., where he died 
and was buried.

of his Church. At the time of his death he was General Mis- 
sioner of the Eastern States. His widow, Mrs. Katharine 
Barrett (nee Waller), is still living in Alexandria, Va. She 
has a world-wide reputation as the efficient National Superin- 
tendent of the Florence Crittenden Missions.

3. William Dodson, third son of John and Lucy Dodson, 
was born in Virginia. He married a "Lucy" (surname not 
ascertained). Soon after marriage he emigrated to Nor/h 
Carolina. He died there abcut, or not long after, 1800, leav- 
ing his wife Lucy with two young sons. For the sake of edu- 
cating her boys, the widow removed to Georgia. There her 
sons became greatly interested in education, became profes- 
sional men, and it is said became greatly interested in the suc- 
cess of a college at Oxford, Ga., and probably were among its 
founders, or in its faculty as professors. In a century of years 
their first names have been lost to memory, and most diligent 
search to date has failed to find any trace of them or of de- 
scendants, if any. 

James and John Dodson, fourth and fifth sons of John 
and Lucy Long Dodson, have left no trace of locality, mar- 
riage or descent. 

The Lucy Dodson, daughter of Charles, married a cousin, 
John Dodson, and died without issue. It is very probable that 
this cousin John was a son of one of these brothers. A brief 
record on a family chart, however, marks their names as with- 
out issue. 

With this sketch ends this interesting Dodson family line.

1600 DODSON GENEALOGY. 1907 

MARYLAND BRANCH B. 



Introduction 



In the State House offices at Annapolis, Maryland, among 
the records of early arrivals and landholders, are the follow- 
ing names of a John Dodson landing there in 1652, of a sec- 
ond John, in 1662, and Katharine, in 1666; John and Kath- 
arine very probably children of the first named John. 

John Dodson, Sr., settled in Charles county, Maryland, 
and John, Jr., in Calvert county. In the same offices at An- 
napolis the following wills are of record : 

1. Will of John Dodson, Sr., of Charles Co., made Jan- 
uary 26th, 1734, and probated April i6th, 1735. In this will 
mention is made of wife Leticia, and sons John and Walter, 
and a daughter Frances Hewton, and the name of the planta- 
tion as "Dodson's Courage." 

2. Will of John Dodson, Jr., of Calvert county, made 
November 3rd, 1736, and probated February 2nd, 1737. This 
will mentions James, Joseph, John, Eleanor, Benjamin, Elias, 
Margaret, Sarah, Mary, and two grandchildren — John and 
William Morgan. James and Joseph were appointed execu- 
ecutor, refused to act. 

3. Will of Walter Dodson, of Charles county; January, 
1773. Probated March 31st, 1773. Mentions wife Henrietta 
and brother John — other brothers and sisters, but names not 
given. Wife and brother John named as executors. 

Note. — It can scarcely be doubted that some one of these 
early Johns became the ancestor of the Maryland branch of 
Dodsons, whose genealogy follows, as there is record of one 
who married a wife of Charles county.

(787) 2. Joseph Allen Dodson is a surgeon dentist in Mays- 

ville, Kentucky, and a partner in his father's 
business. 

Joseph Henry Dodson (the father) is a prominent citizen 
in Maysville and has long been engaged in a large and suc- 
cessful warehousing business, dealing in grain, leaf tobacco, 
coal and other products. He relates the following legend of 
an early ancestor, who was a captain under Braddock and in 
his disastrous defeat by the Indians. In mortal combat with 
an Indian chief, armed with only a flintlock pistol, he took 
refuge behind a small tree, which did not cover his body. The 
chief hurled his tomahawk, which struck the tree, and when 
rushing toward him with his knife. Captain Dodson shot him 
dead, captured his tomahawk and an Indian war bonnet, relics 
long preserved in the family, and escaped with his life. He 
was also commissioned with six hundred Marylanders to fight 
the English battles in the West Indies, where from disease 
and war fatalities but one hundred and sixty returned. He 
with others died there with fever. 

Among his sons, John, Charles and Thomas were soldiers 
in the Revolution, and were mustered out of service at An- 
napolis at the time Washington resigned his commission. This 
ancestor was John Dodson I, who heads this genealogy record.

Maryland Branch C. 

John and Eleanor Howard Dodson Line. 

Introductory. 

The head of this line in this country was John Dodson, 
born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England, in 1752. When 
but nineteen years of age and while serving an apprenticeship 
he suddenly decided to embark for America, and landed at 
Annapolis, Md., in 1771. From the fact that a Dodson family 
was then prominent in the vicinity of Annapolis, having set- 
tled there in the latter part of 1600, said John, of Shrewsbury, 
England, may have been attracted there from a probable kin- 
ship and knowledge of them. 

John married March 2nd, 1778, Eleanor Howard, of Mary- 
land, daughter of General Eager Howard, who was promi- 
nent in both the Revolutionary War, and probably also in the 
war of 18 1 2. The Howard family of Maryland were promi- 
nent in that day, and have remained well known in Maryland 
history from colonial days. A prominent street in Baltimore 
City bears their name. The Howard family of this country 
and of England trace their lineage to Lord Edward Howard, 
in the reign of Henry VHI, and also claim a kinship with 
George IH. 

In the will of a John Dodson, one of the earlier Mary- 
land settlers, made in 1736, among the children therein named 
was Margaret and Eleanor. Margaret married a Howard. 

In 1778, when John of Shrewsbury married Eleanor 
Howard, it can easily be a probable surmise that a daughter 
of the said Margaret Dodson Howard mentioned in said will 
of 1736, and named for her sister Eleanor, was the Eleanor 
Howard who became the wife of this later John Dodson, of 
Shrewsbury, England. 

John Dodson took part in the Revolutionary struggles of 
the Colonies for independence, and was present with Wash- 
ington's army at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at York- 
town. Some time after the marriage of John and Eleanor 
they resided in Baltimore, where some of their children were 
born. In the fall of 1795 John Dodson and family removed 
to a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio, where a number of their de- 
scendants still reside, while others have scattered farther west 
and south.

i6oo DODSON GENEALOGY. 1907 

EARLY VIRGINIA BRANCHES 

Introductory 

The annals of Virginia record the name of a "Dodson 
Plantation" in 1632. And the traditional story in a large and 
now widely scattered line of descendants is that their ancestor 
lived along the James River and was one of the early James- 
town Colony. 

There is also mention of one John Dodson, who was a 
"mighty hunter" and "fur trader," and who in his dealings 
with the Indians became the possessor of large bodies of 
land. 

Another John very early found his way to the western 
side of Virginia to what is now Patrick County, and where 
his memory is preserved in the name of "Dodson Postoffice," 
but from which locality he long since passed away, leaving 
none behind him there of the Dodson name at this day. 

Descendants of the early Jamestown settler, from the var- 
ious Virginia families of which traces are known, must have 
in the latter part of the century of their first settlement moved 
slowly to the western portions of the State. 

Among the earliest names positively known by descendants 
of a widely scattered family, as of the James River or James- 
town ancestors, are William and Jesse, and these most prob- 
ably of the first or second generation from the original settler, 
as the following genealogical tables will show. 

Quite a number settled first in the valleys of the Blue 
Ridge Mountain region — Shenandoah Valley and others. Dur- 
ing the latter part, or about the close of the War of the Revo- 
lution a large emigration left this region and settled in Ken- 
tucky and Tennessee, and later thence to Ohio, Indiana and 
Missouri. 

Among those emigrating to Kentucky were Thomas, 
Jesse, Leonard, RoUo, William and Jethro, and their families. 

363 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

Thomas' family consisted of twelve sons and two daugh- 
ters. These all settled for a time in Wayne County near Mon- 
ticello. 

The ancestry of these goes back from Thomas to George 
to Jesse and to the early James River or Jamestown, Virginia, 
settlers. Four or five of the sons of Thomas, from 1830-35 
and '40 finally settled Missouri. 

The tabulated genealogy of several of these will follpw, 
as far as ascertained. 



A Jesse Dodson Line. 

1 201. This Jesse Dodson is evidently one of several brothers 
who emigrated from Virginia to Kentucky in 
the latter half of the sixteenth century. Among 
these brothers were a Thomas and a Leonard. 
If so, the genealogical descent of this Jesse 
would be as follows : 

1201 I. Jesse, of George, of Jesse, of the early Virginia 

settler of the Jamestown colony. 

Jesse emigrated from Kentucky to Clark 
County, Ohio, in 1810. Name of his wife not 
known. He was the father of six sons and four 
daughters, as follows: 

1202 GV: I. William Dodson. Married 1202(a) Patty 

Canaan. 

1203 2. Elijah Dodson. Married 1203(a) Elizabeth Rey- 

nolds. 

Note. — Elijah became a Baptist minister and settled in 
southern Indiana. 

Jesse Dodson, 2nd. Married 12 12 Jane Patten. 
James W, Married 12 13 Mary Ann Reynolds. 
John A. Married 12 14 Millicent Davis. 
Joseph Carter, Married 12 15 Wife not known. 
Peggy. Married 12 16 Wilham Sailor. 
8 Betty. Married 12 17 John Johnson. 
Polly. Married 12 18 Christian Baylor. 
Patty. Married 12 19 Major Moore. 

Note. — Major Moore was an officer in the U. S. Army 
during the war of 181 2.

1236. Leonard Dodson was also one of the company of 
brothers who with their families formed part of 
the emigration from Virginia to Kentucky dur- 
ing or about the close of the War of the Revo-

brothers who are especially mentioned. Leon- 
ard and Thomas are said to have married sis- 
ters, as their descendants claim a double cousin- 
ship.

Note. — The Burnetts, a name which occurs so frequently 
in the marriage relationships of this Dodson line, are direct 
descendants through Thomas Mayo, of Virginia, from Poca- 
hontas, of Indian fame. The Mayo family is still prominent 
in Virginia history. Ruth, above mentioned, was a grand- 
daughter of said Thomas Mayo; Eli and Stockton, brothers, 
married sisters, and a cousin, John R. Dodson, married Sarah 
Burnett. The parents of these were Isham Burnett and Win- 
nifred Mayo, his wife. And so the names Isham and Winnifred 
are carried down through several generations.

Hospital, met the lady who became his wife, who was of Ger- 
man parentage. 

Gladys Winnifred Bennett was known as the Child 
Prima Donna and prodigy in dramatic art. At four years 
of age she improvised a scene on the stage in Steinway 
Hall, Chicago, before a large audience. At nine years 
of age she sang any aria or song known by her mother, 
who was a fine soprano soloist. She also played equally well 
on piano or violin solos of classical selection, as well as the 
accompaniments of all songs and arias sung by her mother 
or herself. She died suddenly in San Francisco, just after a 
rehearsal, in which she was to appear the next evening, and 
then only in her tenth year. Louis Lorrell, her brother, is 
also gifted with the same musical talents. 

In this family there is an alliance with descendants of both 
the celebrated English house of Shaftesbury and the Stuart 
house of Scotland.

for a number of years in Orland, Glenn County, where they 
managed and edited the "Orland News." Thomas is said to 
have invented an automobile before automobiles were known 
in this country, a full account of which was given in the "Or- 
land News" at that time and copied therefrom. Elias died in 
California in 1899 ^^^ was unmarried. 

Thomas and Emina Dodson Line. '-■ 

This Thomas Dodson and several brothers, also several 
sons and their families led the emigration from Virginia to 
Kentucky in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Among 
the brothers were a Jesse and a Leonard. And among the 
sons were Thomas, Jesse, Elisha, George, John R., Rollo (or 
Raleigh), William, Joseph, James, Leonard, Jethro, Eli and 
two daughters, Polly and Winnifred, vv^ho died unmarried. 

Thomas, of George, of Jesse, of early Virginia ancestor. 

The genealogy of some of the sons of Thomas as has been 
obtained, will here follow. The name Rollo, of the above, 
has been so differently spelled in letters and manuscripts, as 
Roily, Rawly, &c., that it is most likely derived from "Ra- 
leigh," as above suggested in parenthesis. 

371 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

The Jesse here mentioned as next to the early Virginia 
ancestor may himself have been that early ancestor, as the 
name Jesse has been perpetuated in several of the families, 
both in the Kentucky and Tennessee lines, of the Virginia 
emigration of the period above mentioned. And yet among 
other Dodson lines both in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Vir- 
ginia, the name John is more usually met with, as the name 
of the first ancestors in this country. 

George and Polly Rodgers (Dodson) Line. 

George Dodson, fourth son of Thomas, was nine years 
old in 1798, when his father and family and several uncles 
emigrated from Virginia to Kentucky.

Virginia Branch. 
Sketch of Dr. Shelby M. Dodson. 

Dr. Shelby M. Dodson was born January i6th, 1839, in 
Randolph County, Missouri, where George Dodson, his father, 
moved from the old homestead near Monticello,Ky. His father 
belonged to that hardy band of pioneers that hewed our civi- 
lization from the great wilderness, overcoming obstacles and 
enduring privations and calamities little less than miraculous. 
Said George was a member of the famous Kentucky Riflemen, 
who under General Jackson at New Orleans proved such a 
living wall of fire to the British, January 8th, 18 15. Such, 
too, was the spirit and energy of this son, but, unlike the 
father, Shelby Martin's aspirations were toward the ethicaJ. 
Raised on the farm, his mind and soul hungered for expan- 
sion. Even in the furrows when his horses rested from the 
plowing, his thoughts were ever on books. He attended 
the successive three months' school term held in the little 
school house on his father's farm, reading with avidity the 
meagre literature of his day of which he could lay hold. In- 
termitted with the hard work on the farm he taught school in 
the winter season, and finally studied at McGee College. After 
which he began the study of medicine, with Dr. Robert Terrell 
as preceptor, entering thereafter the medical college at Keo- 
kuk, Iowa. He graduated finally with high honors at the age 
of twenty-five from the St. Louis Medical College. He at 
once began active practice. During the Civil War and after 

377

its close, his professional services were in constant demand 
and were given unreservedly to every one. Northern and 
Southern men, non-combatants, renegades, alike received his 
aid. Over rough roads, through heat and cold, day and night, 
he was kept busy. Epidemics broke out among the men re- 
turned from the war, and the strain of labor and exposure 
was doubled, so much so that it told heavily on his strength. 
Successive breakdowns occurred, yet with the characteristic 
energy of his ancestry he kept up the fight against sickness 
and disease, until almost the end, which occurred at San Jose, 
California, March 4th, 1906. 

Dr. Dodson was a member of the Ancient Order of 
United Workmen, an honored Mason, a friend of the poor, 
and all through his life he bore that fine spirit which marks 
and fulfills our highest ideal, that of a "Christian gentle- 
man." 

Dr. Dodson was married August nth, 1864, to Susan 
Eleanor Proctor, of the following quite noted ancestry : Her 
great-grandfather was General John Thomas of Revolutionary 
War history. His daughter (Jane Thomas), her grand- 
mother, married George Proctor, and their son, Rowland 
Thomas Proctor, married Diana Chapman, who were the par- 
ents of Mrs. Shelby M. Dodson. The family of General 
Thomas were kindred of Thomas Jefferson, whence his christ- 
ian name. 

The following historic incident, unnoticed by most his- 
torians, is quoted from the U. S. History of Mrs. Emma Wil- 
lard published by Barnes & Co., New York, in 1856, (page 
204, section 6). "May 5th, 1776. — General Thomas now ar- 
rived and superseded Arnold. He made several attempts to 
reduce Quebec, but the sudden appearance of the British fleet 
obliged him to retreat with such precipitation that he aban- 
doned his baggage and stores. Many of the sick and wounded 
fell into the hands of Carleton, by whom they were treated 
with honorable humanity." 

Of the children of Dr. Shelby M. Dodson, Rev. George 
Rowland is a minister, "Church of the Unity," St. Louis, Mo.

vard, 1902; Ph. D. Harvard, 1903.

Winnifred Mayo Burnett, of Virginia, who accompanied the 
emigration to Kentucky. The Mayo family of Virginia 
claim descent from Pocahontas. Several others of the Vir-

nett family. John R. Dodson removed to Adair County, 
Missouri, in 1841, where a large number of his descendants 
still reside.

Sketch. 

Isham Burnett Dodson, the head of this line of family 
descendants, was born in Kentucky and removed with his par- 
ents to Missouri in 1841, where he soon after married. Before 
the Civil War he owned and enjoyed a beautiful home and es- 
tate near Kirksville, Mo. In this hospitable home, the courtly 
and cordial manner of the father and genial smile of the gentle 
mother was the charm of the happy household, attracting 
many visitors, and many a passer-by who enjoyed their friend- 
ship. Nor did any one in need ever appeal in vain. Travelers 
stopped without money and without price. And many a 
poor boy found a home and help in life's beginning. Possess- 

384

ing a large estate, he owned and employed many helpers and 
servants, and these all found in him a kind and considerate 
master, and though a slave owner, he espoused the cause of 
the Union and fought to make them free, and many of those 
who had been his slaves wanted to remain as his servants. 
He entered the army and was a Major of the 2nd Missouri 
Cavalry. In civil life he was twice elected Sheriff, and after- 
ward Representative for two terms, and Senator in the As- 
sembly of his State. When the war closed he came home to 
find his fine estate in almost a ruined condition. His home had 
been used as a hospital and had been stripped of everything. 
At the close of the war the officers and members of his com- 
pany presented him with a costly sword, bearing the inscrip- 
tion: "Honor to whom honor is due." After the war his 
health failed. His well-nigh ruined estate and his love and 
generosity among his people left him a poor man. He died 
on Christmas evening in 1879. Thus calmly and peaceably 
a life full of usefulness and good deeds passed away mourned 
by a large family and by all who knew him. 

A tribute to the memory of Professor W. S. Dodson, 
son of Major Isham B. Dodson, is worthy of mention here. 
He died of consumption at the early age of thirty-five, in the 
prime of a very successful educational life. He was a man 
of education and refinement and ranked high as a teacher, 
and had done much to bring the schools up to a high standard 
both morally and intellectually. He began teaching at six- 
teen years of age and ceased only when broken health com- 
pelled. He particularly loved children, winning their confi- 
dence and affection, and thus leading them and inspiring them 
to noble aspirations for good. He was above all an earnest 
and devoted Christian and his example and influence remains 
indelible on many hearts and lives. 

James Butler Dodson, another son, is a prominent lawyer 
in Springfield, Mo., and is a fine orator. He served two 
terms as Clerk of the Circuit Court and one as Prosecuting 
Attorney of Adair County. 

Grace Tufts, a granddaughter, in a brief life of Christ- 
ian character and remarkable power and influence, also de- 
serves special mention and memory. From early childhood 
she developed the faculty and ability of leadership in church 
affairs and social reforms. Gifted with charming voice and

manner she led many young- people into paths of virtue and 
religion. She became assistant pastor to her uncle, Rev. 
J, R. Blunt, and during his evangelistic services in Richland, 
Mo., she was a power and a blessing. In 1903 her parents 
removed to Okemah, Indian Territory. She began at once 
to organize there Christian Endeavor Societies, establish 
prayer meetings and the founding of a Christian church. In 
1905 she married Carl Dudgeon, and when but thirteen weeks 
a bride, death claimed her and her work was done.

William Dodson Line. 

1700. Descendants of this William, in Tennessee have 
the tradition that, "he was born in Wales ; married an English 
lady, and, coming to America, settled in the Shenandoah Val- 
ley, Virginia, long before the Revolutionary War." 

This statement the writer, from other circumstances, is 
led to believe an error. In the first place, the "Dodson" name 
is English from very early centuries, and while the earliest 
Dodson Virginia settler may have had a temporary connection 
in Wales, two generations in this country at least must have 
preceded that of the William of this sketch. Besides this, 
William was a very strong adherent of the English Church 
and faith, and because of this his oldest son, Jesse, who- had 
become a convert to the Baptist faith, was banished from his 
home. Jesse therefore wended his way westward, and after 
many hardships of the journey, and narrow escapes from the 
Indians, settled in Warren County, Tennessee. About this 
same period other Dodson families from Virginia emigrated 
to Kentucky, among whom the same family names appear, 
and especially that of Jesse. 

(1701) Jesse, the son of William, married, and raised 
quite a family in Warren County. He adhered to his Bap- 
tist faith and became an earnest and successful minister of 
that denomination. His children were: Jesse, Elisha, Wil- 
liam, Nimrod, Sarah and Tabitha. These children were bom 

39^ 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

from about 1780, and after. After these were grown up and 
married, Jesse and Elisha went to seek a new home in Mc- 
Minn County, and deciding to settle there, returned and 
brought their aged father, where they all found a home in the 
beautiful Estanalle Valley. 

His children grew up in the same faith, and Elisha, the 
second son, also became a Baptist minister. Many descend- 
ants of these still remain in that locality, while others have 
become widely scattered as the years have passed. Genealogy 
of these, as fully as ascertained, will follow. (Reference to 
Kentucky families.)

century ago. 

Henry, the sixth child became a Baptist preacher and was 
a noted evangelist whose sermons and impressive oratorical 
power won many to lead Christian lives. Descendants of a

Sketch. 



William C. Dodson, now a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, 
and an influential citizen and prosperous business man, was 
a private soldier in the Confederate Army of the South, and 

402 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

now a member of Atlanta Camp, U. C. Veterans. On De- 
cember 31, 1 86 1, three months before his i6th birthday, he 
joined Co. C, 43rd Mississippi Infantry. At the end of six 
months' service he was discharged on account of his youth, 
but within thirty days he re-enhsted in a troop of partisan 
rangers, which became Company D of the 51st Alabama Reg- 
iment, commanded by Col. John T. Morgan. He served as a 
private in this command, with Gen. Joe Wheeler's Cavalry 
Corps, during his campaigns of 1862, including the fighting 
around Nashville and the battle of Murfreesboro. In 1863 
he was on duty with the outposts of Bragg's army, and in 
almost continuous fighting during the retreat to Chattanooga 
and North Georgia. On September 9th, 1863, in a fight at 
McLemore's Cove, Georgia, he was taken prisoner, sent North, 
confined at Camp Chase, OhiO', six months, and one year at 
Rock Island, 111. In March, 1865, he was taken to Virginia 
and exchanged. On his return to Alabama he engaged in one 
more fight near Anniston, with a body of Wilson's Raiders. 
Before starting for the war his father, then quite advanced 
in years, broken in health and spirit, said to him: "You will 
probably not see me again, my race is run. I have not a dol- 
lar to leave you, but leave you the name of an honest man, 
for with all my misfortunes there is not living a man, 
a woman or a child who can say that John J. Dodson de- 
frauded them of a single cent." Though the subject of 
this sketch was so young, he says "it has come back to him 
a thousand times since, and has been an inspiration to leave 
to his boys the legacy his father left him, a legacy," he says, 
"I have never seen the time I would have exchanged for a 
million of dollars." He never saw his father again. Begin- 
ning after the war as a journeyman printer he soon advanced 
to the ownership of a printing establishment, and in 1885 
he established a "Printers' Supply Company," which com- 
mands a large trade throughout the Gulf States. He has also 
edited the very valuable history of the "Campaigns of 
Wheeler and His Cavalry." 



THE OLD MAN'S STORY. 



I am a stenographer, employed by a corporation, the 
President of which is an old gentleman, or rather a gentle old 
man, to whom all who know him well are much attached. One 

403 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

day "the old man," as he is called by the younger ones, noticed 
in one of my books my name written "Sallie A," and asked 
me if I was not christened Sarah. I replied that I was, but 
that I preferred being called Sallie. His reply was: 

"I like the name of Sarah best, for I once knew a heroine 
of that name, and if you would like to hear it I will some time 
tell you the story of her life." 

A few days later he handed me the following manuscript : 

"Carve deep their names in brass or stone 
Who for their homes and country bled, 

Who lie uncoffined and unknown 
Upon the field of honor, dead. 

But carve there, too, the names of those 
Who fought the fight of faith and truth, 

Bending beneath life's wintry snows. 
Or battling in the pride of youth. 

Who'er have kindled one bright ray 

In hearts whence hope and joy have fled, 

Have not lived vainly, such as they 
Are on the field of honor, dead." 

I am, as you know, not much given to poetry, but the 
above extract seems appropriate to the story I will relate, as 
it is not one of brilliant achievement, not even of a brilliant 
woman, but of an humble little school mistress who "fought 
the fight of faith and truth," and many years ago passed to 
her sure reward, but who was, nevertheless, the bravest 
woman I have ever known. 

Her name was Sarah Frances — not a high-sounding 
one by any means, but the parents of a few generations ago 
were plain people and gave to their children plain names. 
She was the eldest of three sisters belonging to a family best 
described as poor and proud — and she the proudest of 
them all — but with a different pride from the rest. There 
w^ere three younger children in the family — two girls and 
one boy. As the father had been married twice, it was not a 
happy family — few such families ever are — and the lot of the 
stef>-mother was not an enviable one. There was friction be- 
tween the younger and older children, and even the family 
servants were divided in their loyalty. 

404 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

There was but little congeniality or affection between 
Sarah and her own sisters, but the younger children loved her, 
for she was. kind to them and their mother, and among the 
first words the little ones learned to lisp were "Thith Tharah;' 

She was always practical and industrious, and being a 
little prim and precise in her manners, was early called an old 
maid, though only two years the senior of her sisters, and 
really handsomer. 

All three received liberal education, but only Sarah turned 
hers to practical account. Soon after her graduation from 
college she commenced teaching, so as to relieve her father 
from some of the burden of a large family by paying her own 
expenses, and when she married she had saved up enough to 
buy a modest home. 

Her marriage appeared auspicious, as her husband was 
a young Presbyterian minister, whom I will call Harris, 
though that was not his name. He was highly educated, 
popular, and with reasonably bright prospects for future suc- 
cess. It soon developed, unfortunately, that he was deficient 
in practical wisdom, and after only a few years of married 
life the home was sold, and the wife was forced to resume 
teaching in order to assist in maintaining a growing family. 

Then the Civil War came on and the end found the for- 
tunes of the family much changed for the worse. The father 
and one of the younger sisters had died, the mother had left 
the old home, one of the older girls, who had also married, 
was a widow, her husband having died in a Federal prison, 
and life with all had resolved itself into a struggle to keep the 
wolf from the door. 

Mr. Harris and his family were lost sight of for a time, 
and when I again heard from them they were in South 
America. A number of ex-Confederates, despairing of their 
future under the government they had fought to dissolve, had 
formed a colony and emigrated to Brazil, and Mr. Harris, 
always visionary and impractical, cast in his lot with them 
to act as chaplain. 

Of the history of this ill-starred enterprise but little is 
known, except that all of the colonists eventually made their 
way back to the States, but that the hardships and privations of 
Mrs. Harris and her husband were fearful I have heard her re- 
luctantly relate, and when at last they were rescued by theU. S. 
Government they left behind them the graves of two of their 

405

little children. They came to Springfield, Illinois, where Mr. 
Harris for a time preached in their own language to a Port- 
uguese congregation. Here they made the acquaintance of 
Mrs. Lincoln and received many kindnesses from the widow 
of the martyred President. 

Early in the seventies the Harris family landed in this 
city, it consisting, besides the parents, of three children — one 
boy and two girls. They were poor even to the verge of des- 
peration, and why the wife and mother was not overwhelmed 
with despair, seemed a wonder — perhaps it was because she 
was a wife and mother. She did not, however waste time in 
useless repining, but at once set about to find means to better 
their condition, while Mr. Harris, though a good man and a 
Christian — ^but Micawber-like^ — did not seem greatly im- 
pressed with the distress of himself and family. 

A little school was opened, but it scarcely served to pro- 
vide even scant bread, and gave no promise for the future. 
About this time our public school system was inaugurated, 
and Mrs. Harris applied for a position, but being a stranger 
and without influence, hers was not among the number when 
the names of the successful candidates were announced. 
Greatly disappointed, but not despairing she again went be- 
fore the Board of Education and pleaded for recognition. 
I've said she was a proud woman, and she was, but she asked 
no charity — only the privilege of performing efficient labor 
in exchange for her childrens' bread. But there was in store 
for her a still greater trial of her pride. 

One of the Board of Education, who had known her 
when she was a girl, ^ind members of her church, interested 
themselves in her behalf with the result that she was ofifered 
a position in one of the colored schools. What this meant 
to a proud Southern woman, who had at least once been high 
strung and sensitive, only Southern men and women can 
know or appreciate, and though the thought of such work 
harried her very soul, she rose grandly equal to the occasion. 
She would accept the situation, but not without the approval 
of her younger half-brother — then the sole male representa- 
tive of her family. She sent for him and laid the proposition 
before him, saying: 

"Cabe," (the pet name she had called him when a child) 
*T am an old woman, I haven't long to live, but you and Jule 
(his sister) are young; I don't mind it for myself, but don't 
wish to do anything that would mortify you." 

406 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

Then in that brother's heart was a struggle — maybe one 
between pride and principle, but that will pain him to his 
dying day,— but he gave the right answer, though with tears 
in his eyes, as he said : 

"Yes, take it, Sis-Sarah — no honest work is dishonor- 
able — ^but God knows that if I was able to keep you from it, 
you should never do it while I lived." 

She accepted the situation resignedly, and did her duty 
faithfully and well, and if she felt humiliated she gave no 
outward sign. Only once did she revolt, and that was when 
there was to be a public parade of the children of all the 
schools with the teachers at the head of each grade. She 
marshalled her dusky pupils, gave them in charge oi the jan- 
itor, with a note to the superintendent, saying that was all 
she could do. And it was enough, for the superintendent 
respected her feelings and asked no more. 

As soon as it could be consistently arranged she was 
transferred to the white schools, in which she spent the re- 
mainder of her life. 

Mr. Harris' health, never robust, had been gradually giv- 
ing away. He had for several years been afflicted with epi- 
lepsy, which, either from sensitiveness or ignorance of the 
nature of the malady, he and his wife had tried to conceal. 
In one of his spasms his life went out. There was no money 
to pay funeral expenses, for her small salary provided only 
i' bare living, but here her pride now commenced to show the 
stuff of which it was made. She rejected all offers of help, 
only asking her brother to arrange for her to pay in instal- 
ments the expense necessary to give her husband decent 
burial. 

A few years later her son, who had arrived at the age 
when she could reasonably hope that he would be a help and 
comfort to her, came home from extensive wanderings to die 
with consumption. Again only the help of her brother was 
sought, and it only in the way it was first accepted. 

Then her youngest daughter was stricken with a paraly- 
sis that destroyed all use of her arms — she not being able to 
brush a fly from her face — and for nearly three years lay in 
this condition. To make the situation more horrible she be- 
came irritable to the last degree, and frequently abusive even 
to her mother. 

407 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

Then the eldest daughter, after an unfortunate marriage 
which brought great distress and unhappiness to her already 
overburdened mother, died after a lingering illness. 

Throughout all this the Spartan mother kept calmly on 
her weary way, making no complaint and appealing for no 
sympathy or assistance. If she shed tears no one ever saw 
them, and to some she appeared cold-hearted and lacking in 
affection, but maybe her burdens and responsibilities left her 
no time for grief. Once when she had fallen on the ice and 
broken her arm, her brother made a last appeal to her to allow 
him to assist her — telling her that he was not as poor as he 
had been, and was able to share some of her pecuniary bur- 
dens. With a grateful smile she replied : 

"No, Cabe, you have your work to do and I have mine. 
When I can go no further I will call for you, and I know you 
will come," and the only assistance he ever rendered was done 
without her knowledge. 

After a time the younger daughter died, and then I knew 
the end of the mother was not far off, for I felt that with the 
severing of the last tie that held her to earth, the tired spirit 
would cease its striving and relax its hold; that her work 
being done, and well done, she would wish for the rest and 
peace she had so long craved, and which only the grave and 
the hope of blessed immortality could give. 

And so it proved, for in a few days the brother was sent 
for, and when he came she said : 'T need you now, for my 
journey is about ended, and I wish to tell you what I wish 
done when I am gone." She was not in bed, and he tried to 
comfort her by telling her that she could get well, but he saw 
only too plainly that her strength was well-nigh spent. 

Ever self-poised and self-reliant through life, at the last 
she was able to enter the valley of the shadow and feel no 
fear; so she gently put aside her brother's hopes, telling him 
that she knew her end was near, and that she was ready to 
go, that death had no terrors for her whatever, and then gave 
him a letter to be opened when she was dead, and which letter 
was found to contain minute directions as to the disposition 
of her small worldly effects, even to a provision for the care 
of the lot where she was to be buried, and where all of her 
family were sleeping except the two little ones left in far-off 
Brazil. 

The brother left, promising to come back the next day, 

408 



DoDsoN Genealogy. 

to which she objected, saying that it was not necessary, but 
to come the day after. He came, though, the second day. and 
on the third he found her dying. She was entirely conscious,but 
said she was suffering considerably, and asked that something 
be given her to make death a little less painful. Before the 
physicians could be summoned she had passed quietly to the 
comfort and peace she deserved so well. And knowing what 
her life had been — knowing that now her mission was accom- 
plished, and life held nothing for which she cared, I cannot 
say that I would have called her back if I could. 

It was not a grand funeral — the relatives, the minister 
and a few of her humble neighbors only follewed the little 
schoolmistress to her last resting place. But when I went back 
to my office I called up the employes of the establishment, and 
told them this simple true story I am telling you, saying to 
them I hoped it would be an inspiration to them as it had 
been to me — adding that she had fought the fight of faith and 
truth and in comparison with the bravery which her life had 
exemplified the courage of battlefield heroes sank into utter 
insignificance. 

My story is practically ended, but there is a little more 
to add. In order to legally dispose of her small amount of 
money and other effects, it became necessary for the brother 
to take out letters of administration from the Ordinary (Pro- 
bate Judge in most States). In making final settlement he 
told the Judge he would like to devote a small sum to the erec- 
tion of a modest monument, but if the regular court fees were 
charged there would not be enough money left. 

"How much do wish the monument to cost?" asked the 
kind-hearted Judge. The sum was named, and he replied : 
"Then erect the monument and pay me only what is left." 

So this brave woman sleeps under a monument erected 
from the proceeds of her own labor, and on it is inscribed, 
after name and dates : 

"After a life of unselfish toil, and heroic devotion to duty, 
she finds rest and reward in Heaven." 

Note. — The name "Harris" in above sketch is fictitious. 
The real name is Harvey. Miss Sarah Frances Dodson mar- 
ried Rev. H. L. Harvey, as will be seen by reference to this

every advantage of school and college in music and art was

character. Her brief wedded life soon ended what promised 
to be one of long happiness and joy to husband and friends, 
and when taken ill they were just ready to enter a new and

of Clarksburg, and her great-grandfather was the late Daniel 
D. Wilson, of the same place. Her grandmother was Mrs. 
William C. Maholme, of Newark, Ohio, who before her mar- 
riage was Miss Henrietta Wilson, and whose early life was 
spent at the Wilson homestead at Clarksburg. 

Miscellaneous IV. 

1 88 1. James Dodson, of Americus, Ga., was a lawyer of 
note for many years, now deceased, Nov. 28, 1898. His son 
is also a lawyer at the same place, viz, Hon. W. A. Dodson, 
who was president of the Georgia State Senate and delivered 
the address of welcome to the late President McKinley on 
the occasion of his visit to the South in 1899. It is a source 
of regret that the genealogy of this line has not been obtained. 

In Albany, Texas, are the names of two brothers, 1883 
J. C, and 1884 J. E. Dodson, in connection with the Albany 
National Bank. 

Miscellaneous V. 

The following very interesting family sketch was fur- 
nished by Mr. Alfred T. Dodson, an English gentleman now 
residing in Chicago : "My great-grandfather lived at 'The 
Ashes,' Selston, Nottinghamshire, England." "Selston" was 
the ancient home of many generations of the Dodson family, 
and where several generations are buried in the Seltston parish 
churchyard. 

1885 The great-grandfather (name not mentioned) had 
several sons and daughters, 1886 Thomas, 1887 
William, 1888 Matthew, 1889 George, and 
1890, a daughter, who married 

1891 Thomas Bland, of "Shipton Hill," Selston.

Note. — The early families were all well-to-do farmers 
and owned their lands for generations. (i90i)Mr. Alfred 
T. Dodson is the only one of the family in this country. 
i907Benjamin Dodson, a cousin of Samuel, his father, fought 
in the Civil War in this country and was never heard of after- 
wards. But few of this male line in England yet survive.

the peopling of this new country, as of the numerous family 
lines recorded herein, claim a brief tribute and record on this 
final page. 

Two brothers, William and Jesse Dodson, were among 
the early settlers of South Carolina. Tradition of the family 
is that they came from Scotland. If so, it must have been 
from England first, as long and patient research and investi- 
gation by the author finds the Dodson name there from the 
early centuries. 

Said William the Elder left two sons, — William, Jr., and 
Joshua, — and one daughter. William, Sr., while clearing land 
for his home, was surprised by the Indians, and in attempting 
to escape, through and over the piles of brush, dislocated his 
ankle, was overtaken, killed and scalped. 

Jesse, ,the brother, with his family of twelve sons, finally 
settled in Tennessee, whose numerous descendants are scattered 
far and wide South and West. 

William Dodson, Jr., also settled in Tennessee, where his 
family of four sons were born and reared, viz. : Constantine, 
Joel, Elisha and William Riley Dodson. The three elder of 
these sons finally emigrated to Texas. Among their numer- 
ous descendants, nine were soldiers in the Civil War, C. S. A., 
and four of these were slain in battle. Colonel Jasper Dodson, 
a son of Constantine, served under General Jackson in the 
War of 1812-14. Constantine died at his home near Fort 
Worth. Elisha Dodson was a practicing physician in Eastern 
Texas. William Riley Dodson later removed to Mississippi, 
and was also a physician and planter in Winslow County. 

William Dodson, Jr., the father of these, in his advanced 
years removed to Alabama and died there. 

Dr. William Riley Dodson left one son, Dr. W. J. Dodson, 
and three daughters. 

Dr. W. J. Dodson, now resident of Dossville, Miss., is still 
engaged, after thirty-three years, in the active duties of his 
profession. His family consists of six children, viz. : Dr. J. 
R. Dodson, Dr. J. C. Dodson, George, Annie, Connie and 
Nannie Dodson. Annie, the oldest daughter, is the wife of 
James T. Buck, editor of the "Chilicothe Independent," Texas. 
In this rather meagre sketch of a quite remarkable family 
line, the number of physicians named is specially worthy of 
note, as follows : 

414 



DoDSON Genealogy. 

Dr. Joshua Dodson, brother of Wilham Dodson, Jr., who 
practiced at Fayetteville, Lincoln Co., Tenn. 

Dr. Elisha Dodson, of Eastern Texas. 

Dr. William Riley Dodson, Winslow Co., Miss. 

Dr. William J. Dodson, Dossville, Miss. 

Dr. J. R. Dodson, Dossville, Miss. 

Dr. J. C. Dodson Gray, Leake Co., Miss. 

The early William, of South Carolina, who was slain by 
the Indians, is named as the great-great-grandfather of Dr. W. 
J. Dodson, of Dossville, Miss., who contributed notes for this 
sketch.
