6. John DODSON18 died in 1784 in Shenandoah County, Virginia.19

In 1737, Charles and Moses, sons of John, were put in the care of the Church wardens of North Farnham Parish - no indication of the reason behind this action. The family probably left Ricmond soon after because daughter Elizabeth was baptized in old Augusta Co VA in 1741.

In Nov of 1756, John patented 260 acres in Frederick Co VA [Northern Neck Grants, Fairfax tract]. This tract was sold described as in Frederick, the part formerly Augusta, to Abraham Derst/Darst. In Sep of 1756 John had patented another 400 acres in August Co which is likely the land later willed to his son Peter.
