does anyone know anything abt. a Joe Dotson, age 70, on the 1880 Lafayette Co. MS census, dist. 3, in the home of his daugh. Emma Cobb and son'nlaw??? or Joseph Dodson and family on the 1850,60 & 70 census in Panola Co. MS??? he was of the age to be the same Joe Dotson.
my g.g.gr.parents being Rufus Wood found as Woods and wife Sarah are on the 1880 Lafayette Co. MS census, dist. 3. they have moved to Shelby Co. TN (Memphis) by the 1900 census. Rufus died bef. 1910 and his wife Sarah is found as Sallie in the home of their oldest son on the 1910 Shelby Co. TN census at age 65. i believe Sarah/Sallie dies bef. 1920 and i haven't been able to find her death record.
but there is a Mrs. S.E. Woods death cert. died Mch. 27, 1916 in Shelby Co., no birth dates or place, abt. 70 yrs. old, father named as Joseph Dodson, unknown info., mother unknown, informant is J.T. Dove of Capleville, TN. my gr.mother said they lived in the Capleville area when she was small, she was born in 1905.
so does anyone recoginize any of these names and know anything abt. any of these people??? thanks, Kay.
