I am trying to find out more about my great grandfather. His name was Absolem Andrew Dodson (born June 20, 1858 and died October 1,1911), his wife was Mary Elizabeth Sadler (born Jugust 7, 1850 and died July 20, 1941).
Mary was married twice. The first marrage was to William Nevels Martin (Born Sept 7, 1853 in Young county, Texas and Died Dec. 30, 1882).
Mary and William had 5 childred: William Thomas Martin, John Henry Martin, Joe Martin, Maggie Martin and Charlie Martin.
Mary and Absolem Dodson were married in 1885 in Taylor Country Texas at Buffalo Gap.
They had four childred: Ed Dodson and Jesse Dodson (My Grandfather) and two died in infancy.
The moved to Oklahoma and Absolem and Mary are burried in the Hennepin Cememery in Oklahoma.
Jesse married Sarah Robinson in 1908 and had two children: Maggie Lois and Paul Virgil (My father). Maggie Lois was married to Sidney Long (she died in 1993 and is burried in the Allen, Okla. Cementery). Paul was born in 1910 and died in 1967 and is also burried in Allen Okla.
Paul married Cora Davis in 1949 and I am their only child. My mother Cora died December 31, 1993 and is burried in Comanche Okla. next to her parents (Joe and Sina (Tatum)Davis).
Any help on who Absolem's parents were would be greatly appreciated.
