PUBLISHED BY R. R. DODGE
THIS compilation of tlie early records of births, mar-
riages and deaths, is designed only as a groundwork
of a larger volume, which we hope may be collated and
published by some one or more of the members of our
numerous family. The undersigned has for thirty years
spent much time in transcribing the records of two or
three of the first generations of the name of Dodge in this
country, which are mostly to be found in Essex Co., Mass.,
and Block Island, R. L, where our first ancestors settled.
It is presumed the names found may be connected with
the present generation of nearly all now living ; that is,
where those who know who were their grandfathers and
The question has often been asked. Can you connect
my line of descent with the first ancestors f It is hoped
the publication of these records may, in some measure,
aid in answering this inquiry.
