Henderson County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 16, 1920
Dorchester County

A. Quay Dotson, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Forney Dotson, of Hendersonville, died at his home in Harleyville, SC, at 2 o'clock Tuesday. Death resulted from blood poisoning which began with a blister on his lower lip. The blister was lanced a week ago, and Saturday his condition grew so serious that his parents were notified. They left immediately for Harleyville. They and his brother William Grady Dotson and wife, of Badin, NC, were with him when death came.

Interment was made on Wednesday at Harleyville, where Mr. Dotson had lived since his marriage to Miss Ozella Mims in March, 1918.

One week from the date of his death, Mr. Dotson would have been 24 years old. He made his home in Hendersonville until his marriage. He was well and favorably known in this city where he lived the life of a model young man.

After attending college at Wake Forest and the Polytechnic Institute at Atlanta, where he took a course in electrical engineering, Mr. Dotson volunteered for technical work in the US Army and was sent to Clemson College. He was transferred from there to Camp Johnston at Jacksonville, where he remained until after the close of the war.

After his discharge he married Miss Mims, whose parents, Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Gross, have a summer home on Haywood Road. After marriage he was associated with Mr. Gross in the management of his cotton plantation.

The deceased is survived by his only brother, Grady Dotson, of Badin; and by the following sisters, Mrs. Albert Beck, Mrs. Harry Camp, Mrs. Noah Hollowell and Miss Kate Dotson, all of Hendersonville. This is the first death in the immediate family.
