John Thomas Dotson

Birth: Jan. 18, 1848
Louisa County
Iowa, USA
Death: Sep. 12, 1863
Louisa County
Iowa, USA

The oldest child of David Dotson (1818-1898) and Mary (Jackman) Dotson (1826-1902), who were married in 1846, John Thomas Dotson died at age 15.

Records online at Louisa County, Iowa, cemeteries, shift both dates back 10 years (apparently a misreading of the death year on the headstone); these dates are incorrect, as his mother would have had to be twelve when he was born, and his parents were not yet married.

Additionally, he was listed on the 1860 federal census with his parents in Louisa County, Iowa, the family surname looked to be "Dolson" as they didn't cross the "t." See 1860 Louisa County, Iowa, census, p 135 Wapello Twp, post office Wapello.
