HISTORY: "History of Pike County, Illinois" Pages -1880- by Chas. C. Chapman & Co.
C. H. DOSS, physician, was born in Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky 19 February 1834, and began the study of medicine with his father, a resident physician at Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Two years afterward he came to Illinois and completed his studies in the office of Dr. A. BOWMAN, at Carrolton, Illinois. He first began practice at Fayetteville, Greene County, Illinois where he was successfully engaged for 5 1/2 years, when he moved to Manchester, Scott County, Illinois and followed his profession until he came to this county in 1876, where he has since made his home. In September, 1856, he married Margaret A. THRASHER, a native of Griggsville, and they have 9 children, the eldest a graduate of Bennett Medical College in Chicago. The Doctor was made a charter member of Illinois State Electric Association in 1868; also served as Treasurer in 1871 and 1872, and filled the office of President in 1873; was also a charter member of the Electric Medical Association, organized in Chicago in 1870, and 3 times represented this State to the National Electric Association. He has given much attention to farming and stock-raising, and owns 180 acres of land 3 1/2 miles from Pittsfield, where he has established a breeding farm for horses; he has some fine blooded stock. Prominent among them are 2 Hambletonian colts(stallions), "Richard" and "Radiator;" the former a chestnut sorrel, white hind feet, 16 hands high, star in forehead, weight 1,300 pounds; foaled June 24, 1874; bred by S. W. Wheelock, Moline, Illinois "Radiator"__color, bright bay, 16 hands high, star in forehead, weight 1,300 pounds, foaled May 31, 1874, and bred by same person. The pedigree of the above named stallions descends from the great trotting families of Kentucky. They have a natural gait, and show a flattering record of speed, etc.; are high mettled and full of life, yet kind and safe to handle. The A. O. U. W. also have a very flourishing Lodge. It was organized in April, 1878, with a membership of twenty-five.
