I have a Dodge family bible and a copy of my great, great grandfather, David Dodge's, death certificate, which note his birth date as 1811 in NY State. I have detailed information about his wife, Mahalia Nicholas/Nichols, their children, grandchildren, great, great grandchildren, and great, great, great grandchildren BUT nothing about his parents, and/or his siblings.

I have a copy of a deed made in 1835 between the Grantor, Isaac Paden, (early settler of Crawford County) and the Grantee, David A. Dodge, for land in Conneaut Twp.. Then I have a copy of a deed transaction in 1843 for purchase of land in a nearby Township (Summerhill) in the same county between David Dodge (definately my g g grandfather) and Samuel Arnold.

I found a David A. Dodge as a resident near Olean, NY about 1820-23 then he disapears from the area. Therefore, I believe he is the same David A. Dodge who migrated into Conneaut Twp., Crawford county. I believe David A. Dodge and David ? Dodge (my g,g grandfather) are one in the same individual and I'm searching for the proof.

Perhaps if I list some of the census data I've compiled it would assist others in locating a link to their Dodge relatives, once residents of Pennsylvania.

James M. Dodge, wife Frances 1848-1924 - Children: Julia, Margaret, George C., and Edward P 1852-1919

In gleaning through the "Early Settlers of NY" book found: Almira Dodge, daughter of Harry Alden died June 30, 1854 age 32 years. Of Clayton, Co., Iowa. In your web site you have her date of birth but not her death date. I see her father, Harry also died in Clayton, Co, IO

Barb,

I checked the information out on the web site and could not find John Elliott Dodge or a reference to his first wife - Eleanor Skleton

This family lived not far from my great, great, grandfather, David Dodge, in Crawford county so I've been searching them out for a long time.

I have a copy of John Elliot Dodge's death certificate: Birth in Ohio (?) April 9, 1819 died February 17, 1908, Richmond Twp., Crawford county, age 88 yrs 10 month 5 days. Burial North Richmond Cemetery, Crawford county. Died of old age. Was a farmer. Charles Dodge of Richmond Twp., relationship not noted, signed the death certificate.

North Richmond Cemetery: first wife Eleanor Skelton - married 1/26/1843 (place not noted)

Eleanor Skelton Dodge died 2/5/1863 (38 yrs 1 month)

Epitaph: Ellen Isabell Dodge daughter of J. Elliot and Eleanor Dodge died 1/31/1863 (2 months 3 days)

Clarrinda A. Dodge, died July 23, 1833, aged 22 yrs. 4 months 15 days (beside Eleanor) - I believe this might be the first wife of my great, great grandfather, David Dodge. That is, if he was married twice!

Sarah A. Dodge, 2nd wife of J.E. born 1843 died 6/5/1915 (Charles Dodge, Administrator, - address Richmond Twp., Crawford county)

Alta, daughter of J. E. and S.A. Dodge b. 1865 died 1865

Here is another Crawford County Dodge: Conneaut Twp., Steamburg Cemetery: Edmund D. Dodge, born 1876 died 1919

- Spanish American War Veteran

Georgia B. Dodge / wife of Edmund, Born 1883 died 1964 (maiden name possibly Hosier)

Barb,

Here's another Dodge line I'm working on trying to connect to my ancestors: Catt. Co., NY Web site.

Article: Mrs. Waitie Dodge Hall buried in Mc Kinstry, Wednesday.

Mrs. Waitie Hall, grandmother of Mr. Andrew Hall of Pleasant Valley and aunt of Mr. George Hall died Sunday 9/8/1935 at the home of her granddaughters, Mrs. Russell Bump, of Olean where she had made her home for the past few years.

Mrs. Waitie Dodge Hall, was the widow of Zelo Hall. She was born and spent pratically all of her life in this vacinity (Catt co.) She was the mother of three daughters and three sons all of whom she survived but one, Mr. Andrew Hall.

Her mother was Lydia Arnold Dodge, one of three girls who were lost in the forest in the early days of the settlement of this section - Catt county. Story about the girls being lost in the woods will be located on the Enchanted Mountains Genealogical Society's web site - subject: "Incidents"

Records I found in the Little Valley, NY, Cataragus county were as follows: 1865 resident Lydia Dodge in town of Great Valley - Lydia was 90 yrs old in 1865 born abt 1775. Also resident of Little Valley in 1865 was Calvin Dodge a Baptist Minister. I believe Lydia Arnold was the wife of Calvin Dodge - all seems to fit but I'll get back to you if I can find more concrete proof.

Following is the list of residents found in the Little Valley court house records:

Lydia 1850, 1855, 1865; Calvin Dodge 1865; Joseph Dodge 1850, 1855; Isaac Dodge, 1850; W.D. Dodge 1865; Waite 1865, Elisa Dodge 1865.

Perhaps I missed Levi Peabody Dodge on the site but here's what I found in Hbg. records - Lycoming, PA information: Mr. Banger's third wife was Ms. Adele M. Dodge, the daughter of Levi Peabody Dodge, late of Newburgh, NY (Levi - 1824 Dodge genealogy - Dartmouth College - Medical)

Lycoming Co., Pa 1860 census:

Charles Dodge age 25 born NY

wife Nancy Callahan age 40 born PA

Richard age 18 born PA

Dennis age 17 born PA

Isabel age 14 born PA

 

Walter H. Dodge was born 1/2/1899 in Crawford county, PA. Father was Charles M. Dodge and mother was Alice Dodge. Walter had a sister, Ruth A. Dodge, born 5/12/1900 also in Crawford county, PA. Hope this is the Walter they have been searching

Hi Barbara, I just got your e-mail and I'm attempting to send you the first attachment I have ever done. Please let me

know how it comes out. This letter was written to my father William Dodge, by his father when he was six years old. I

still trying to find out more about him. My under standing at this time is that Tomas Dodge died in 1926-still to be

verified. I also sent for a copy of my grandmothers application for Social Security which I will e-mail right after this one.

Please let me know if this one gets to you also.I understand that this marriage was his second. There is still so much to

find out and verify. Regards, Gwen

Land records

Dodges who registered land at the Fort Wayne Land Office between the yrs. 1823-1852:

Ebenezer K.

Hiram

Levi

Nathan B.

Samuel

Silas W.

Thomas F.

Thomas T.

That is a big time span. I need to look at these someday at the courthouse

here. I don't know if they tell from which place the man lived at the time

of entering the land. I know, for instance, that my Grandfather Ball rode a

horse to Ft. Wayne from Steuben Co. in order to make his purchase. I sent

you his memoirs.

Jane Wolfe of Ontario Co., NY said that there was a Hiram out there who she

was going to look into. I haven't heard from her about it, however.

I sent you copies of the papers that Ruth from Pa had sent to me. Hope it

helps someone who is lost..She has done a terrific amount of work.

Regards,

Janeen, Fort Wayne

Thanks Barbara. I am still not sure that my ancestor Nathan came from this line. I will really get cranked

By the way, my e-mail is now rcdodge@ispchannel.com. Please change this in your address book as I

I go by "Peter," - We have a tradition that the first

born son will have the same name, or initials, of his

grandfather. Since my grandfather was alive when I was

born, my parents simply called me, "Peter," to save

confusion and I've stuck with it ever since.

I haven't sent the material as yet, because, I need to

retrieve it from an, as yet, unpacked box left over from

our move back to Ashtabula. Will respond when I have

developed enough ambition to go hunting.

No, I haven't received the Journal.

Hello,

I am hoping to find out - how to send my Dodge information to you. I have

just recently been given "proof" of my Dodge line via email, but know the

source and

I am waiting for the copy of this "proof". The proof was found in a "Dixon

Bible" and

the man posted the info and I could not believe my eyes when I saw my

GGGrandmothers name and my Frederick L. Cooley. I was very excited.

I have been researching for the parents of my Elizabeth Jane Dodge brn 1829

in Heartland, Winsor Co., Vermont for over 15 yrs now. I now have been given

information that her parents are: Edmund Pearson Dodge (1794-1874) and

Betey Collins (1794-1848) from Merrimac Co. New Hampshire.

Please let me know the best way to submit my line to your great site.

Because of this connection, I have been able to go as far back as 1550's to

England.

It was - to say the least - very exciting. I now feel so relieved to have

this bit of

info that has been bothering me for so long.

My Elizabeth Jane Dodge married Frederick Louis Cooley in 1849 in La Salle

Co., Illinois, and I have their marriage certificate. I have all of the

descendants and

now all of the ancestry for both these lines.

Hi,

Sending an obit I read in yesterday's paper. I do not know these people, nor do I have them in any of

my records.

Sandy

Portland Press Herald, Friday, September 22, 2000

Marjorie Louise Dodge, 75

ROCKPORT — Marjorie Louise Brodis Dodge, 75,

wife of the late Capt. Henry L. Dodge, died Sept. 21,

2000, at Penobscot Bay Medical Center.

She was born here, a daughter of Bert L. and Marjorie

Stevens Brodis, and was a 1943 graduate of Rockport

High School.

She married Capt. Dodge in Rockland. He died June 3,

1987.

Mrs. Dodge lived her entire life on her family's

homestead here.

She was a librarian at Rockport Public Library for more

than 30 years until her retirement in 1992.

She was an active member of John Street United

Methodist Church in Camden, and served on many

committees, including the building committee and

Ladies' Fellowship.

Mrs. Dodge also was an organist at the former

Rockport United Methodist Church, and was a

member of the church choir.

She was an avid gardener.

Rockport's 1992-93 town report was dedicated to

Mrs. Dodge, her family said.

A son, Christopher H. Dodge, died in 1969.

Surviving are a son, Daniel S. Dodge of Rockport; two

daughters, Mrs. Kevin (Laurie Dodge) Knauer of

Hyde- ville, Vt., and Catherine Dodge Twadelle of

Martha's Vineyard, Mass.; her sister, Theresa Jameson

of Warren; and four grandchildren and two

great-grandchildren.

Visiting hours will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at John

Street United Methodist Church, 98 John St., Camden,

where a funeral will be at 2 p.m. Sunday. The Revs.

Linda Campbell-Marshall and Mark Monson Alley will

officiate. Burial will follow in Sea View Cemetery.

Arrangements are by Laite and Pratt Funeral Home,

Camden.

You might want to consider joining, they are a wealth of information. She

can send you membership information as well.

I do not find any information on this Dodge line in either the Robert or

Tristram files, in the Dodge genealogy books I have, or in the Dodge Family

Association "mystery files". Maybe Barb can help.

I agree. I'd love to be able to go there and do research on it. I called

Connecticut (Old Lyme and Lyme) where Irena Rowley and Daniel Dodge got

married (by the method of announcing the banns)and they said that they had

no record.

What also puzzles me too is that Daniel Dodge and Nancy Blydenburgh didn't

name their first child after the father. They named him after his step

father, Jarod Hubbs. None of the kids were named after Daniel. I wonder

what that was all about. It didn't occur until a few generations (one or

two) down the line.

I agree. I'd love to be able to go there and do research on it. I called

Connecticut (Old Lyme and Lyme) where Irena Rowley and Daniel Dodge got

married (by the method of announcing the banns)and they said that they had

no record.

What also puzzles me too is that Daniel Dodge and Nancy Blydenburgh didn't

name their first child after the father. They named him after his step

father, Jarod Hubbs. None of the kids were named after Daniel. I wonder

what that was all about. It didn't occur until a few generations (one or

two) down the line.

In the pension papers, a Elizabeth Wheeler gives a deposition. Irena calls

her, her sister. I wonder if she was really a Dodge or a Rowley or a Hubbs.

(That happened while they were living in KY) Daniel must have had some

siblings (not Daniel RC Dodge, he was an only child). I also can't find

where Daniel RC Dodge is buried in KY. I found Nancy Blydenburgh Dodge Ames

is buried though. She's in Red Mills, near Elizabethtown, KY.

I gathered some more marriages in Kendall, LaSalle and Will Counties,

areas near where my ancestor Albert Dodge lived. I grouped the

marriages by 1840's, 1850's and 1860's. I should let you know that part

of Kendall County was in LaSalle County until 1841. I need to get down

Hi I am searching for a Henry C Dodge. born in 1890, in Colebrook, Ohio.

Married to a Flossie Pendeton born in Corryville Pa. There were several

children, but also an Indian girl who was his maiden. He supposedly had two

children by her, don't know her name, was told she was Blackfoot Indian from

a tribe up in Montana area

Henry was suppose to work in coal andTannery work, died of a heart attack in

Astubula Ohio around 1946 or 1947 sometime, His last child Junior Henry Dodge

was born in Astubula Ohio on Jan. 20, 1931. Junior Henry was married to

Lavell Stanley Dodge 1954, and had 6 children I was his 3'rd wife, He was

also married to a Delorse Dodge from that area, and had 3 children by her.

We don't know the Indian girls name and have been searching everywhere for

it, we believe the Flossie Pendeton adopted Junior and raised him, but not

sure. We do know that that Junior's mother was killed and beaten to death,

but don't know where she is burried. If you can be of assistance to us any

way, we will appreciate it, I have searched the records there in Ohio, and

can find nothing.

My oldest son, says he has found the info. but won't give it to us, and so we

are lost.

My children need to know their ancesters, as all the girls have had illness's.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Barb, but my eleven-year-old is

having a particularly rough time getting on track in middle school.

As I haven't stumbled across any other Dodge-Irving descendants while poking

around internet sites (not counting my nephew, Craig Willingham), you most

certainly have my permission to publish to the Dodge web site anything I dig

up. I did goof on (Col) Richard Irving Dodge's year of death--it's 1895 (if

you'd be so kind to correct that). Another bit of trivia I've recently run

across is that he is credited with naming "Devil's Tower" (of 'Close

Encounters of the Third Kind' fame) during an Army exploration of the Black

Hills for gold and other valuable minerals. The expedition was ordered by

General Custer.

Here's a funny piece I found about his father, James Richard Dodge (my

g-g-g-grandfather), at http://www.ls.net/~newriver/nc/wnc15.htm (History of

Western North Carolina - Chapter XV - Bench and Bar):

"Beginning at the first term of the court in which they practiced, [NC

lawyers] followed the courts through all the counties of that circuit. Among

Swain's fellow lawyers on the Western Circuit were James R. Dodge

(afterwards clerk of the Supreme Court of the State and a nephew of

Washington Irving), Samuel Hillman and Thomas Dews. On one occasion these

were all present at a court in one of the western counties and Dodge was

making a speech to the jury. Swain had somewhere seen a punning epitaph on a

man whose name was Dodge. This he wrote off on a piece of paper and passed

it around among the lawyers, creating much merriment at Dodge's expense.

After the latter took his seat someone handed it to him. It read:"

"EPITAPH ON JAMES R. DODGE, ATTORNEY AT LAW."

"Here lies a Dodge, who dodged all good,

And dodged a lot of evil;

But, after dodging all he could

He could not dodge the devil."

"Mr. Dodge perceived immediately that it was Swain's writing, and supposed

that Hillman and Dews had had something to do with it. He at once wrote this

impromptu reply [according to a later account by Judge Battle, he jotted it

on the reverse side of the paper and immediately passed it back to his

fellow lawyers - RWM]:"

"ANOTHER EPITAPH ON THREE ATTORNEYS."

"Here lies a Hillman and a Swain-

Their lot let no man choose.

They lived in sin and died in pain,

And the devil got his Dews..."

[Unfortunately--again according to Judge Battle--Thomas Dews, a brilliant

lawyer, couldn't take the circuit riding and began drinking. He died not

too long after that while crossing a swollen river when intoxicated. So the

devil did get his Dews - RWM]

Now that I've learned that my g-g-g-uncle is buried just up the hill from my

Rosslyn office, I'll have to stop by the Visitors Center at Arlington

Cemetery one day and look up the location of his grave. I know James, our

eleven-year-old, would enjoy visiting a tangible bit of family history (his

"social studies" grades have jumped up since I started researching my

family's genealogy this past May and tying it to historical events).

Take care,

Robin Willingham Moore

it was identical word for word to what this member had sent us.

Obviously she copied it for us.

Therefore, I do not want to put this on our web site unless I get your

got whatever information I post there and I would do the same with you

Your information is SO INTERESTING . . . and brings to mind how families

were torn apart during the civil war.

A couple of months ago, I received a request from the webmaster of the

Arlington National Cemetery site for information on Richard Dodge. Of

course I knew who he was - we have a couple of his books in the Dodge

Library here - and I assumed it would be very easy to find out all sorts

of information about him but alas . . . I could find out nothing more

than what I already knew which was just the basics.

My father was from Mobile, AL so I am part southerner and have some

empathy with them.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Barbara,

I was in our Santa Cruz public library, which houses the Santa Cruz

Genealogical Assoc. and ran across this article. I copied the newspaper

article to read later and see if this man is in any way tied to my Daniel

Hood Dodge. So far, not much luck.

I went out to the Dodge Family trees and looked for him and am unable to

pinpoint an exact person in the existing files. However, I thought of the

"missing links" files and thought you might like this one. If you want a

copy of the original article, let me know.

If you don't want future articles on other Dodges, just let me know. It

seems there were about 8 - 10 Dodges in the Santa Cruz area and I have had no

luck to date matching to my Daniel. I am copying each one I find to look for

further references.

Thank you very much for your patience and help.

passed from suffering at 1:30 a.m. today at his late residence, 121 East

Third street. His death was due to a complication of ailments resulting in

dropsy. At the time of his wife's death last August, he was very ill, but

later rallied and essayed to resume the pursuit of business. Again failing

strength caused him to return to his couch and since Christmas he has

gradually failed.

Henry Clay Dodge was born in Thomaston, Maine, in 1838. When twenty

years of age he joined his cousin in a trip to California. They came by way

of Cape Horn, Mr. Dodge working before the mast. Temporarily he located in

Sacramento, but in 1859 came to the Pajaro valley where he engaged in farming.

In 1864 he was married to Miss Julia S. Davis of Watsonville. After

residing here for a short time they went to Jolon and while there Mr. Dodge

became interest in a good mining property, but one requiring expensive work

in its development. After about five years there he went to San Francisco

and engaged in business. While there he secured other mining interests in

Nevada. After about ten years of life in the metropolis he returned to the

country and thereafter divided his time between a residence in this city and

the working of his Jolon mines. It was on a trip toward Jolon that the final

break in his health occurred and he was forced to return to Watsonville.

Deceased was a man of great gentleness of manner and made lifelong

friends of all with whom he came in contact. Studious, ambitious and ever

hopeful, there was no place in his nature for the discouragements that beset

the ordinary mortal. Within a few days of his death he expressed the

conviction that his patient pursuit of unmined wealth must some day result in

success.

As a kind husband and loving father he was without a peer, and as a

friend he was true as steel.

He leaves a daughter, Mrs. F. A. Crackbon, two grandchildren, son and

daughter of the latter, and a sister, Mrs. Mary G. Porter, all of San

Francisco.

The funeral will take place from the late residence, 121 East Third

street, at 2 p. m. Wednesday. Interment will be at I. O. O. F. cemetery.

Barbara,

Here is another obit I found in Santa Cruz:

Evening Pajaronian

August 3, 1905

DEATH CLAIMS ANOTHER PIONEER

At the Age of Sixty-three Years, Mrs. Julia S. Dodge Succumbs to Heart

Trouble.

The Messenger of Death has again visited our city, this time summoning a

highly respected pioneer lady in the person of Mrs. Julia S. Dodge, wife of

H. C. Dodge. Deceased retired about 11 o'clock last night feeling as usual,

but shortly before the midnight hour the spirit took its flight. Mrs. Dodge

had not been enjoying good health since last December, but with the exception

of a brief attack of sickness a few days ago, her condition was not

considered necessarily serious. It was heart trouble, an always treacherous

malady, that brought the good lady's life to a close. As is usual in cases

of that nature, the spell cam on suddenly, just after she retired and it was

but a brief space of time before the heart ceased to beat. With the first

symptom of a return of the dreaded malady, Drs. Pope and Briggs were summoned

as were also nurses from the Watsonville Hospital, next door, but medical

science and tender nursing were unavailing and the patient passed away at the

call of the Master.

The deceased lady was well known and highly esteemed by the people of

Watsonville, among whom she had lived almost continuously since 1854. Born

in Lynchburg, VA., sixty-three years ago, she came to California with her

parents in 1853 and settled at Sacramento, where the family resided for one

year before coming to Pajaro valley. Her Maiden name was Julia S. Davis. In

1864 she married in this city to H. C. Dodge, who survives her, but he, too,

has been in very poor health for several months.

With the exception of about ten years, Mr. and Mrs. Dodge have resided in

Watsonville ever since their marriage. One child, Mrs. F. A. Crackbon, who

lives in San Francisco, was born of the union.

During her long pilgrimage on earth she encountered both sunshine and

shadow, but lived an exemplary life, bestowing kindness upon those with whom

she came in contact in a social or business way. She was a good wife, a

loving mother and an ever-faithful friend and her passing will be mourned by

all who knew her kind and sympathetic nature. She has rounded out more than

three score years and the influence she exerted for good while in this life

will bear fruit in the coming years. Her's was a life that was not lived in

vain. She goes not empty-handed to answer for her stewardship here below.

Deceased was one of the charter members of the Presbyterian church in

this city and was a strict adherent to the cause of Christianity. In the

daily walks of life she exemplified its teaching most faithfully.

Besides her husband and the daughter above named deceased leaves two

sisters-Mrs. Benella Shepard of Watsonville and Mrs. Antoinette D. Kidder of

San Francisco. Sympathy is extended to the bereaved relatives.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been perfected.

 

Always,

Janece Carter Streig

Hello Barbara,

Thank you for answering my EM so quickly!

In my excitement I didn't get the site correct-- it's "Descendants of

Peter

Dodge" hosted by Shelley Dodge Green at

www.members.aol.com/sdgree715/dodge.htm . Sorry to create problems.

I will be happy to provide you with all the information I have. I

have a

large picture of Maynard Dodge (to be honest I didn't know who he

was?) On

the back of it is written Maynard Dodge died at Charlton, Mass 1881

(7).

The date is difficult to read it could be either 1881 or 1887.

I have a box of material given to me by my mother about 30 years ago.

But

my husband and I retired this year and we are remodeling our house and

although I looked for the last 30 minutes I can't put my hands on it

at the

moment. My husband has some information stored in the Family Tree

program.

If you will send me your postal address we will snail mail you the

information we presently have and also will be happy to provide any

photos

which you might want.

What do I have to do to join the Dodge Family Association?

Thank you for your kind assistance.

I hope I am not a pest, but I have a copy of a few pages from a book entitled "History of the Dodge Berry

and Allied Families".

This is where I first read about Richard and William. What caught my eye was a line from it--"William

and Richard Dodge were descendants of this John and Agnes. William Dodge was a mariner on the ship

"Lion's Whelp" which made several journeys bringing colonists from England to America in the 17th

century. The following is a description of the ship Lion's Whelp and William Dodge's third journey to

America: ....."

...William Dodge settled in Salem along with his wife and two brothers, Richard and John Dodge.............A

few Dodges , however, still carried "salt water in their veins " and went to sea.

And if the death record I have is correct--this William Dodge died in the Sailor's Lung Harbor Hospital in

New York in 1908. I am not sure this is the same guy who is buried in the Oak St. Cemetery, but I am

pretty sure even though the headstone is off by 1 year. (but they were all new headstones that were

made all at the same time).I think I am related to this guy, but cannot figure it out. My grandfather's birth

certificate in 1859 says his father was a mariner. That to me clinches it. This William Dodge's father was

William Dodge and his mother was Mary Ward. I do not know anything about the Ward name at all. If

this is all correct, then Ward would be a link and possibly Harris and maybe Congdon.

Your idea about the Irving link is quite interesting. He also had a cousin or ??? named Martha I. Dodge.

My father always used to tell me that she was his aunt before he was born or some silly thing.

Sorry to bother you, but this is where I got this idea about the mariner thing and also the other

information I though might help.

HI, Loryn

IN our membership only data base we have over 17000 names from the two

brothers, WIlliam and RIchard.

Neither one of them where whalers. William was a farmer and Richard was

also a farmer but was involved in town functions quite a bit.

There is no William that we know of that fits into the scenario that you have

given.

In the Tristram line, there were MANY fishermen. But I think the key lies in

finding what IRVING line of yours fits into the Dodge line and finding the

proof for that.

When someone writes to us regarding searching for an ancestor, we need as

much information as possible. There are literally hundreds of Williams, mostof

them being in the William/RIchard genealogies but a good number also being

in Tristram. The surname Irving, we find ONLY in the Tristram line.

My father, Frank Fairchild Dodge had always told me that a William Dodge relative of

his had around the world on a whaling ship. I'm not sure who that might be unless it

was the one brother who first settled in Salem. Also is possible to get the geneaology

of William, the first one and go from him and his descendants to search or is not all of

that info available?

Hello, Loryn- I have been searching a bit here, for you . In

the Tristram line, we have Irvings and I believe they are

related in some way to Washington Irving. I cannot find the

specific people you list below, but one of the more famous

Dodges in that line if Richard Irving Dodge who was a

General and who gave the name 'Devil's Butte' to that

formation in the Northwest.

His grandmother was Ann Sarah Irving. I received an

e-mail some time ago from someone who believed that she

was a sister to Washington Irving. I have never checked out

time frames on that.

He had an uncle named William Irving Dodge b. 1780, d.

1873. We have children listed for this William who married

Patience Aiken. These are the five children listed for them.

1. Ann Sara DODGE

2. Julia Irving DODGE

3. William James DODGE

4. Richard DODGE

5. Elizabeth Russell DODGE

We have no info on William James Dodge except that he

mararied a Martha Humphrey, Aug. 19, 1844.

SOmetime in recent weeks, I received an e-mail from

someone else giving more information on the extended family

of Richard Irving Dodge and when I find that e-mail, I will let

you know what it says.

ANyhow, please keep in touch.

Could you help?

My name is Loryn Dodge Ankeny. Father-Frank Fairchild Dodge,

born in Norwich, Conn. His Father was Frank Irving Dodge. His

mother and father were(buried at Oak St. Cemetery,Norwich)--

William Dodge 1824-1907and Harriet E. McCarty 1832-1902. This

William Dodge according to information I have was a mariner on

the boat, City of Worcester.

This is where I get lost. Supposedly This William Dodge had a

father named William Dodge and maybe a mother Mary Ward, but

not sure. There seems to be a cousin of Frank Irving Dodge with

the name of Fanny Beckwith. There also is a name of Risley in

there somewhere. There is also a name of Adams and Peckham.

Then in Yantic Cemetery there was buried a William Dodge died

July 4, 1836 and Mary Dodge died 11/5/ 1858. Maybe a relation?

lankeny@worldnet.att.net

My name is Linda (Lindsey) Aliff, my grandmother was Annie Lee Dodge, Her father, my gr. grandfather was John B. Dodge b. 20 Nov. 1848 d. 10 May 1906 he is buried in the Dees Cemetery in Marshall Co., Kentucky. There is also a J.W. Dodge b. 22 Jan. 1882 d. 11 Aug. 1902 we are not sure of who he is. There are quite a few Dodge's buried there of which we know of most of them. John B. and Lucinda had 8 children, in order, Martha Jane Dodge b. Feb. 1875 in Hopkins Ky. mar. to William Wison Clark. I add the husband because wherever Isee a Dodge more than likely there is a Clark. 2nd child George Dodge b. 1877, Charlie L. Dodge b.Feb. 1880, Alvin Dodge b. 1882, Annie Lee Dodge b. 1884 and married in 1901 in Marshall Co. Ky., Emma Dodge b. 1887, Fannie Elizabeth Dodge b. 1889, Henry Dodge b. 1892. These are the children with Lucinda then a second marriage to Malinda Belle? produced a son Melvin B. Dodge.

I do not know where John B. was born or his mothers name but his fathers name was possibly Ben. I do not know if you can help but it is worth a try. Some one may see and recognize some of these names. I also was very interested in the coat of arms and the history of it but I really could not find anything on your website. I thank you for any information you may come across. My dad knows nothing of his heritage.

At this time he has cancer it it would be a gift from me to him. My email address is : myangel@indy.net
