|Birth: ||1645, England|
Israel Dodge was the second son of Tristram Dodge.
After the arrival of Tristram Dodge Sr from the north of England near the River Tweed to Block Island, Rhode Island, in 1661, his four sons (including Israel) followed him in 1667. These sons were named as "Freemen" in July, 1670.
The first settlers to Block Island were Baptist.
Israel died soon after 1725, being over eighty years of age.

Oct. 1, 1720, Israel Dodge of New London, late of Block Island, sold land located in Block Island, formerly belonging to his father, Tristram, to his brothers John, Tristram and William of Block Island. He was on a farm in North Parish (Montville) New London, Connecticut, in 1694. In 1705, the Queen's Court reported him settled there on Indian Fields. As the New London records were burned by Benedict Arnold on September 6, 1781, it is difficult to give dates concerning the family of Israel. He appears to have disposed of all of his real estate before his death. In 1707, he bought land in Montville of Samuel Rogers. In 1719, he and wife Hannah gave his son John a part of this land.
