Sorry, I know this is off topic in that I am not a Dotson, but I saw your name while doing a search on the Internet to see if anyone else out there had my first name and I found this forum and your submission. It is weird finally coming across someone else who has my name. I am also from Texas (Dallas, to be more specific) and I am 24. Do you know where your parents found your name? I am tryijng to find out what the origins of my name are and what it means if you could help me out wiht that. I'll make this short since this is probably a little weird for you...good luck with finding your other relatives!
