Bio and Links
Descendants of Richard Dotson Sr 1752 to ca.1847, is an Ancestry tree, I am an Editor on. I wanted to help others looking for their trees to be able to find their ancestors.
Saving History is a fun and full filling way to help others. I am unable to go take photos because of physical limitations, this is a great way to help.
Good Hunting!

Thanks, Cathie!
Thank you! Just bumped into another find of yours, and was able to add some more. Makes no difference which person it was about, but I just wanted to give you a thank you for all of the work you have done. Very much appreciated!

RE: Mattie Harvey
Thanks for the info. It seems the name Hervey was misread from Harvey for many folks! Your direct knowledge takes authority over old records. The Harvey name was very prominent here during the 19th and 29th centuries. There almost 60 markers for Harvey and 18 for Hervey. I wonder how many other transcription errors these two families share? :)

It is always disappointing when I cannot find a marker.

RE: Dotsons in Coleman Cemetery
Thanks for this message, and for your kind note.
It looks like there are two names for the same cemetery, and so there are two entries for the same cemetery on Find A Grave. I'll contact an admin to ask that they be combined.

This always annoys people because it means someone will lose the memorials she or he created...the earliest one gets to stay. So, if the cemeteries are combined, then I'll lose my memorial. It didn't exist under Coleman but does under the alternate name of Freeman - Coleman.

And, thanks for all that you do. Spectacular collection of research you and your cohorts have done. Cindy

Dotsons in Coleman Cemetery
Hi! I answered your photo requests in Masonic Memorial in Doddridge Co. While I was there, I noticed there is another, older cemetery behind the Masonic Memorial. It is called Coleman or Coleman Family Cemetery. I photographed headstones of
Marshall Avery Dotson, Delia Dotson and Carson Dotson who already had memorials, but lacked photos.

I created a memorial and posted a headstone photo for Timothy Dotson Maze. He seems to have been related to the Marshall and Delia because his headstone is with theirs.

RE: Masonic Memorial in Doddridge County
Thanks for the kind note.
I was also at Coleman, which is attached to Masonic Memorial. There were Dotson interred there as well, and I'll let you know if I find anything in my photos not already documented on Find A Grave.

I was out looking around Masonic Memorial in Doddridge County. I added some Dotson memorials that weren't documented on Find A Grave:

Gary Dotson
Ronald Dotson
Raymond Dotson

Added some photos to existing memorials that you might be interested in though there were no photo requests for them....
Jettie Dotson
Carson Borror

RE: Thank You
I took several pictures if you want all of them. Lots of artwork on the stone. Quite nice tribute to him.

RE: Ida May Smith - Germantown Cemetery
Cathie, you are too kind. I sent you an email with the obituary. Well, really, I sent you two emails. I forgot to attach the obituary to the first one. That's what I get for not getting more sleep. I really need to work on that. LOL

I'll see what else I can find for you and will send it your way.

Happy Researching! :)
