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.

Requesting links
Thanks for the links you submitted to me via email - As you probably know family links can now be made through the Edit tab by clicking on "Relationship (parent and spouse links)". I would prefer requests to come in that way since they eliminate my fumble fingers typing the wrong number. Thanks!

Thanks for the Death Certificate info.
I note that his DOB on the Death Certificate is listed as 1861. However, all other records that I have found list DOB as 1859, including his grave marker.
Are you a member of If so, my "McNelis Family Tree" has the newspaper article about his tragic death.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or info.
