Sorry it's taken me so long to reply...Anyway, my grandmother was the one who told me that her grandmother's nickname was Chalk, But it turned out it was her maiden name (My grandma had it all mixed up that day and it made me wonder if she had been smoking crack...sorry, bad joke).Ellie Chalk. And she married Edward (Spud) Dosher. His grandfather was James Calvin Bird Dosher, who played a large part in taming Texas. Was your grandmother Doshier from Tennesee? I would love to hear about her, maybe we are connected some how. It's always fun meeting distant cousins!
