Joseph Thompson Dodge
[Asa(1), Nathaniel(5), Elijah(4), Joseph(3), Joseph(2), Richard(1)]

On the left is pictured Joseph Thompson Dodge who was the compiler and author of Dodge of Essex County 1629-1898, originally a two volume set.  He is holding one of the set of books.  His brother, Adam Clarke Dodge, is pictured on the right.  Joseph did a remarkable job before the days of computers and e-mail.   The result of his work is the basic 'Bible' of Dodge Family Genealogy for the William/Richard line of Dodges.  We have used the genealogy in this book as a base for our large genealogy file which now contains well over 14,000 names.
