Alfred Smith Doss was born on December 25th 1827 in Botetourt County, Virginia.

He married Sarah Keen and the couple went on to have six children.

Those children were Edward W. Doss, James Doss, Joseph Ely Doss, Nancy Bell Doss, Salia Sarah Doss and Mary Narciss Doss.

Alfred Doss appears with his wife, Sarah Keen and one of their sons, Edward Doss in the 1850 Monroe County, Kentucky, Census. Living next door are Eli Keen & Nancy, along with nine of their children.

The Doss family relocated to Collin County, Texas, some time between August of 1857 and 1860.

He appears with his wife and children on the 1860 Collin County, Texas Census.

Alfred served in the War Between The States for the Confederacy. He was a member of the D Company of the 2nd Texas Partisan Rangers, also known as the 34th Texas Cavalry.

He served from August of 1862 to May of 1865.

He was a farmer after the war in Dallas, Texas.

He appears on the 1865 Collin County, Texas, Tax Assessment Rolls.

He appears on the 1869 Dallas County, Texas, Tax Assessment Rolls.

He appears on the 1879, 1883 and 1884 Dallas County, Precinct No. 1., Texas, Tax Assessment Rolls.

He appears on the 1880 Dallas County, Texas Census with his wife, Sarah, their daughter, Mary A. and a Joseph Keen, aged 64, who was born in Tennessee. I believe that Joseph is a sibling to Sarah Keen.

He appears on the 1900 Wise County, Texas Census, where he is noted as being widowed and his daughter Salia and his grandson, Ervin Harding are living in his household.

He passed away on December 8th 1910 in Decatur, Wise County, Texas and is entered in Oak Grove Cemetery.
