Note for:   Catherine DODD,   NOV 1832 - AFT 1905         Index

Individual Note:
     According to Lucy Dodd Miller's notes: "Catherine Lawson was first buried in Chillicothe, MO. She died before Rev. Alex Lawson and he left word for them to take up her body and place it beside him in McKinley Cemetery, near Marion, MO. It was awful, so Clay Jones stated, but a son attended to the digging up, hauling it to the other cemetery in a lumber wagon and burying it again.
Mr. Jones said Catherine was the only person he ever saw die twice. The first time they thought she was dead, a man rode on horseback for a Dr. and it was hours before they brought her to; but after massaging her and walking her for hours, she lived on."

Note for:   William Newton DODD,    -          Index

Individual Note:
     From Karen (Dodd) White's website on W. N. Dodd:
William Newton married Harriet Catherine King in 1864 and moved from Illinois to Missouri in 1871. They came in a covered wagon and settled in Callaway County near Bachelor. They homesteaded 80 acres of land. They finished their log house in time for their first winter, but had to leave their stock on the open range. In the spring one of their mules was missing. They searched everywhere but the mule could not be found. When the mail finally came through from relatives back in Illinois, they wrote that the old mule had come back to Illinois. One evening a couple of strangers rode up to the house and asked to stay all night. William Newton and his wife would never think of turning them away. He went to care for their horses while she prepared a meal for them. The children were put to bed while the grownups visited for awhile, before being bedded down. With the crack of dawn, the men were up, paid for their meals and lodging, complimented Harriet for their nice evening and rode away. William and Harriet were impressed with the nice manners these two men had. The strangers names were Jesse and Frank James.

Note for:   Jesse W. DODD,   17 APR 1856 - 28 AUG 1944         Index

Individual Note:
     According to Letetia Gentis: "Jesse was last known to be in Springfield in 1912. I am assuming that he was in Springfield until moving to Spokane. The estimate is based on the 1920 census, where Jesse and Robert are living with Jesse's daughter Mae. The census was taken in January and I am guessing that they wouldn't have stayed with Mae and her husband for more than a year."
