Bio and Links
I joined Find A Grave because I wanted to find where my ancestors were buried. Then I learned that I could link them for not only me, but for anyone else interested in the same line. I now really enjoy creating non family member memorials and linking their family members.

My maternal 3rd great-grandparents were William and Elizabeth Short Dodson.

My maternal 2nd great-grandparents were Andrew Jackson Rebecca Williams Dodson Sr.

My maternal great-grandparents were William and Ida Flack Dodson.

My maternal grandparents were James (Jessie) Joseph and Helen Elizabeth Demuling Dodson.

I'm descended from the Laughlin, Murphy, and McGinnis lines from Onoville, N.Y and the Demuling and Dodson lines in Pennsylvania.

My wife is descended from Isaac and Lucinda Hill Brock from Texas and the William T. and Sarah Sallie Johnson Gaston line from North Carolina.

Willie Mae Bailey, do you know if she served or if only Edward did? I see Pvt and Cpl listed in this memorial. Who was Pvt and who was Cpl in the US Army?

Artimis Chacona Dodson
Hi David,
Noticed you posted Anna Nickles Chacona's death certificate to her memorial. Do you know if Artemis Chacona Dodson is buried with her husband at Calvary or with her parents at Lakeside? I have an obituary which doesn't specify where she was buried and want to add a memorial to the right cemetery.

All patched up - and connected to the parents as well!

RE: Infant Girl Dodson
Dunno for sure. Since she doesn't have a name, that would indicate she wasn't baptized. The initials of the parents line up, though. Do you have Find A Grave numbers for the parents? I so, put an "edit" together, and I'll connect.

William Dodson
Are you familiar with the connection between William Dodson and Lewis Helman? I have been researching this for a historical article.

Anna Dodson Butler
Do you know if Anna and her husband (Richard?) settled in Ohio? I'm trying to track down the parents of my great-great-grandfather John D. Butler (b.1843). He was born in Morgan County, Ohio, but settled in Circleville, Ohio. There was a woman named Harriet Butler-Stermer who lived near him in Lancater, Ohio that could be one of John D.'s 13 siblings. In 1860, Harriet's mother Anna Butler was living with her. Wondering if it might be the same Anna. Any help is appreciated.

Death certificates
Please don't add them. The information on them about parents, place of birth and birth date is frequently wrong and the cause of death is an intensely private matter. You are also adding something as a picture that is not a picture, and it is lifted from another website.Since you do not hold the copyright for this image, you should not be adding it. This is a website for the final disposition of the person memorialized and the death certificate does not enhance our knowledge of the life being celebrated.

Ah, you were so close to their gravesites and now you're so far away! Thank goodness for Find a Grave so you can see the stones. It's a suitable substitute until you get back to the area.

That's wonderful to hear that Abbot Placid will be sending you biographies.

Happy Holidays!
