Richard Dodge, Sr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1602
East Coker
Somerset, England
Death: Jun. 15, 1671
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

Son of John and Margery Dodge born between 1600 and 1602; Married in England to Edith (maiden name uncertain, but may be Brayne - see her tribute on her name questions); Some of their children were born in England before the couple immigrated to America's Massachusetts Bay Colony.

They received an 80 acre land grant disposed by the village of Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts in the area adjacent to Beverly, Essex County, Massachusetts in 1638;

He was a farmer as were many in that inland area away from the Salem waterfront and village.

As an original Dodge owner of the land which became "Dodges Row Cemetery," this family cemetery is on Dodge family land of his lifetime, although his burial site is not here. A headstone tribute was placed for him in 1962.
