Fourth Generation


69. Joshua DODSON Jr. was born in 1764 in Virginia. He died in Georgia.

Joshua's grandson, George W. Dodson, in writing the family history, states that his grandfather was the 4th son of Joshua Sr. That would suggest we are missing names of some of the children.

Joshua Jr and his wife Sarah apparently moved to Georgia soon after their marriage.

Joshua DODSON Jr. and Sarah WARNOCK were married circa 1785 in Virgina. Sarah WARNOCK died in 1798 in Henry County, Georgia.

George W. Dodson believed his grandmother Sarah to have been Scot-Irish, because she was Presbyterian.
