The Rev William Dodson/Dotson, as far as I have been able to determine, is my GGGGGF.As far as we can determine he had a son named Simon (somehow the name was changed with Simon from Dodson to Dotson.Simon is definitely my GGGGF.
According to my information, the Rev. William Dodson/Dotson was a traveling minister - in the Virginia-NC Piedmont area.He died in Iredell County, NC in 1832.
Would you have any information on Sara Sallie Dodson.Did she have a brother named Simon?If so, this will be the link between Simon (son) and William (father).
I am happy to share any information that I have been able to confirm or am 99% sure of.
