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.

George Dodson & Elizabeth Seyffert photo requests
You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for the above named person(s). I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photo(s) for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!

Re: Ruth Lewis photo request
Death certificate states she is buried at St Felix Cemetery, Freedom, not Cavalry. I looked it up and it is aligned with Oak Grove Cemetery. I am going there this morning so I will see if they have a record.

Ernest Edward Briggs
You are very welcome. I accidentally added his son's gravestone to his memorial when I first fulfilled the request. When I realized my mistake I was no longer at the cemetery, so I went back the next day and found that his stone was right next to his son's. I had overlooked it originally as it was late in the evening, and I had been graving all day.

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.
