hello jim, i just learned yesterday that my kings are connected to the dotson family. i live about an hour from the boss cemetery which is in dent co, mo., so i visited yesterday to learn more about my biological grandmother inez king. she married everett russell. she died at age 26 of tb. even though her headstone says, "gone, but not forgotten", i fear she truly has been all but forgotten. near her headstone is john dotson 17 april 1888, and wife esther 10 feb, 1890-16 May, 1928. when i research i see her name written as easter. also, i saw the headstone of pollyann 1849-1936 and William H. 1855-1902 (dotson), and there was also Wm. Cody 15 june, 1891-25 jan. 1928 and Minnie B. 18 april, 1886-12 dec 1965. i am sure there are many other dotsons', but these are those i took pictures of, since they were so near my grandmother's plot.
