This is a bit of a stretch but I have a William R. Dodsley born 1840 (that's Close) His parents Henry Dodsley B:1803 and Henrietta Rothwell B: 1802 Both born in Nottingham, England. Children in family include Mary B:1830, Henrietta B: 1832, Louisa B:1834, Kirza 1837 all born in Nottingham, England. After that I have Thrisa B: 1838, WILLIAM B: 1840 and Henry B: 1842 all born in Michigan.I have not proved out all of these children's dates except for Louids, my G.G. Grandmother. I have no information on William's wife or children.I came to this fourm looking for information on Henry Dodsley B: 1803 Basford, Nottingham, England along with his parents Samuel and Mary. Any help with them would be appreciated. Good luck with William. I hope we have the same person. Looks like we need more input on this fourm.
