F.M. Dossett, b. about 1851 in Tennessee, and wife Mildred were living in Hopkins County, Texas at the time of the 1880 U.S. Census.They had two children, Robert A. Dossett, born about 1875, and Maude Dossett born about 1878.
F.M.'s father is reported to have been born in N.C.
I have not yet determined what the intial's F.M. stand for.
I note that Robert Dossett, born 1789 in Orange County, N.C., died 1879 Campbell County, Tn., son of William and Drucilla Dossett, and his second wife, Elizabeth Wilson had a son named Frank, who was about 1851 in Tennessee.
My theory is that F.M. Dossett and Frank Dossett (son of Robert) are one and the same.
I would appreciate any information about the parents of F.M. Dossett.
