I know very little about my family geneology, but here is what I know for sure.
My Grandfather's name was Beril Alphonsio Dotson born December 20, 1889. My Grandmother's name was Lucille Stanley-Dotson DOB unknown.
They had two(2) children, J.Stanley Dotson (my father) born 02/07/1919 in St Mary's WV and Martha Dotson DOB unknown, also born in St Mary's.
J.Stanley Dotson first married (or so I was told)Ruth Ann Bailey of St. Marys sometime around 1936 or 37 and I believe they had three children, Tommy, Suzie and I think Cindy but I'm not sure, all born. They were subsequently divorced.
J.Stanley Dotson was in the Marine Corp, stationed in Bremerton Washington when he married Jean E. Simpson-Franklin in 1954.
They had two (2) children between them, John S. Dotson, Jr.(4/55) and Robert William Dotson (10/56).
If anyone has any information about my family line preceeding or paralleling my Grandfather and Grandmother I would graetly appreciate it.
