My Dotson / Dodson

Brickwall

Searching for the parents of John Dempsey Dotson who was born

born about 1833 in Tennessee. It has not been determined if he was

born in Dickson County or Humphrey's County. Or if he was from a

different County of Tennessee. According to the 1860 Dickson County,

Tennessee census, he was born in Tennessee.

He married Susan Willey 03 August 1850 in Dickson

County, Tennessee. The marriage record can be found there.

I do believe the John Dotson, age 17, enumerated with Thomas

Dotson, age 28 on the 1850 Humphrey's County, Tennessee is the

John Dempsey Dotson that married Susan Willey.

Other researchers has told me that John Dempsey Dotson had a

sister named Eudorah Elizabeth Dotson, and she married Enoch A.

Brown [Edward Alexander Brown]. They can be found on the 1880

Humphrey's County, Tennessee census. She was born about 1837

according to the 1880 census.

Also living with Thomas Dotson of the 1850 Humphrey's County,

Tennessee census is Elizabeth, age 13.

No, I do not believe Thomas and Martha Dotson to be the parents

of John Dempsey Dotson and Elizabeth Dotson. Thomas would have

been 11 years old when John Dempsey was born according the 1850

census. I do believe he is an older brother of John and Elizabeth. Or

he could be an uncle to the two of them. But, he is somehow related.

I have been researching these Dotson's as if Thomas was an older

brother, and Elizabeth was a younger sister.

If John Dempsey Dotson is the Demps Dobson that was killed in

1864/1865 by the Federals. His untimely death did not allow him

time to leave a will. Therefore the only information to go by at this

time is what the older generation of this Dotson family

has passed down to researchers, and the 1850 and 1860 census

records. So placing John Dempsey Dotson into the correct Dotson

family will be a difficult task.

There are several ways to find the parents of John Dempsey Dotson.

Getting there will take alot of time, and maybe several years.

Patience is a virture everyone must learn to endure.
