Olimpia "Olivia" Dozier Adams
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 19, 1859
Death: Jan. 6, 1932

Confederate widow, was born in Alabama or Mississippi on November 19, 1859, to H. T. Dozier, of Georgia, and Eliza Townsend, of Alabama. It appears that Miss Dozier traveled to Texas circa 1880 - 1881, where she married Confederate veteran and Georgia native, William Dorsey Adams, on August 3, 1891, in Kaufman County.

After their marriage, Oliva and William worked as farmers. William also worked as a janitor at the First Baptist Church in Terrelll. Complaining of bad health and having difficulty working, William applied for, and received, a Confederate Pension from the State of Texas in 1916. After further deterioration, he and Olivia moved into the Confederate Men?s Home on September 26, 1921. William died on January 29, 1927, and was buried that same day.

After his death, Olivia, on February 15, moved into the Confederate Women?s Home. On February 7, 1927, she began receiving her husband?s Confederate Pension from the State of Texas. For almost five years, Olivia lived in the Women?s Home. She passed away on January 6, 1932, and was laid to rest next to her husband in the Texas State Cemetery.
