Searching for ancestors of my ggrandfather, James Monroe Dotson. He was born in Alabama, 10/24/1854, d. Bowling Green, FL 2/6/1940. Buried in Paynes Creek Cemetery. James Monroe was a Baptist minister, circuit rider, farmer and Mason. He married Jane Frances Allen, 8/2/1877, in Columbia County, Florida. She was born in Lake City, Columbia County, 9/25/1861 and died 10/23/1942. She was his second wife. Family stories say JM's first wife died in childbirth. We have no records re: her name or fate of baby. James Monroe and Jane Frances had the following children:Louisa Daisy, d. 4/22/1965, and Maude, b. 1879. Both these daughters were born in Bradford County,FL.
