Joel Doster's dates were 1777-1854. Only from a cemetery book, I have William Doster, MD, buried at Ariton, but he was the son of Joel. William was in Henry Co, AL in the 1860 census, age 50, physician, b. NC; wife Catherine, children in household Joel age 8, Rachel age 3. By 1870, Catherine was in Dale Co, AL as head of household with two additional children, Sarah and Simeon. // William Doster, b. about 1772, NC, son of James Doster d. 1818, was in Union Co, NC in 1850. His brother, Sampson, named him in his will and did not mention his residence. The will was probated in 1857; I have not seen any probate records.
