I have lived in Ohio for the past 46 years but I was born in West Union (Doe Run) and my branch of the Dotson family tree also is through Richard Dotson Jr. ( b. 1794 ). So far I have found branches back to Samuel Dotson (b. c1675). Your husband and I are probally cousins. There is a lady just down the road from you who has done a lot of research on the Dotson family. She was born a Dotson but I can't remember her married name.E-Mail me if you are interested.I'll see if I can find her name and address.
