Rev William 1737 Dodson & Winifred Johnson of VA
I am looking for more information about the family of Rev William Dodson 1737 - 1832 & had 2 wives;
M. 1st Winifred Johnson (5 children)
m. 2nd Mary Franks (5 Children)
William Dotson was born, probably in Prince William (now Fauquier) Co, VA. His first marriage, under the name Williamson Dodson, was in Fauquier Co, VA on 30 Nov 1763 to Winifred Johns(t)on, the daughter of Jeffery and Rachel Johns(t)on; Winifred died before 1789.
The Zion Hill church was constituted in April 1814 with William Dotson as pastor.
William Dodson left no will in Wilkes, nor is there any account of an administration of his estate or of the disposal of his real property during his lifetime. It can only be supposed that shifts in county lines made him a resident of Iredell county during his last years. William is buried at Three Rivers Baptist Church, Alexander County (in the section of the county that was formerly Wilkes County). A printed list of the tombstone inscriptions shows:
Rev. William DodsonApril 1737 - 1832
The name is "Dodson" on the tombstone, but is most often found in county records as "Dotson".
Any help with his children, especially James, would be gratefully appreciated.
