Yeah Carol, But after this information, Doss disappeared off the face of the earth.Seems to have just dissapeared. The next info I can find on my grandparents it the 1930 census where dovie is widowed. I have a copy of the draft registration card, and Because I found DOSSIE ALLEN on the 1900 Census living in Jackson County, Cow Lake Township. He was 19 yrs old s- w-m born may 1881.He lived with Head of Household H. King as a hireling, I Believe when asked his name he said Dossie, the registerant wrote Down Doss C. and I think my grandfather corrected him with his proper given name of Doss. I think Dossie was a nickname. To me it looks like the registerant tried to erease the C. to me.so I have his discritpion, But where did he go, This is driving me nuts I cant get past him let alone find my granmothers madien name.
