Search billions of records on



While I have not devoted a lot of research time to this line, I have accumulated some bits and pieces of information.  I am posting it here in hopes someone wiill see it and have a connection to this family.
This symbol  represents my direct lineage.

Jacob Alfred "Jake" DODSON b. __ Jan 1860, AL, a Farmer, m. 09 Jan 1881, in Itawamba Co., MS, Sarah Louella "Ella" COOLEY, b. __ Sep 1861, MS (or   Marion Co., AL?), (daughter of William Allen COOLEY and Elizabeth JONES) d. __ bef 1920.   I am looking for when and where both of these people died and are buried.
