Birth: 1857
Randolph County
Alabama, USA
Death: Nov. 27, 1901

Oklahoma, USA

James Thomas Wiley Dowdy was born October 1857 in Randolph County, Alabama. He married Arvie Zena Telemisus Donham of Marion county, Alabama about 1885. They moved to Willow, O.T. from Covington, Texas about 1899. Their homestead was east of Willow.

In November 1901, Thomas William Dowdy had taken a bale of cotton to the gin in Granite, OK. While waiting for the cotton to be ginned, something spooked the team of mules and caused Thomas to fall off the dock onto his head, causing his death. Arvie Zena Donham Dowdy was widowed with six children and pregnant when her husband died.
