April 28, 1787 for Rawleigh Dodson by Rawl Dodson,

deputy surveyor. The state of NC issued grants to Raleigh Dodson for two
tracts of 150 acres, both apparently entered before Hawkins Co. was created
from Sullivan in 1786, #1481 for 150 acres on the left fork of Dodson's
creek and 31489 for 150 acres on the south side of Holston River. Roberta Estes From: robertajestes@att.net
Dodson's creek no doubt named by or for Raleigh Dodson is a branch of Holston River on the s side of the river and nearly opposite the town of Rogersville where
the power plant is located today. Near this site was Dodson's Ford where
the Great War Path and Trading Path crossed the river. The spot is marked
by a Tennessee Historical marker. The land around Dodson's Ford is some of
the most beautiful in E. Tennessee.
Raleigh Dodson was born in 1730 in North Farnham Parish outside of Richmond,
to George and Margaret Dagord Dodson. His wife's name was Mary, although we have never determined a surname for her. By 1766 Raleigh was in Halifax County, Virginia and owned land that appeared to be on the border of Halifax and Caswell County in North Carolina. There was an entire group of Dodsons who moved to this area about this time. By 1782, Raleigh Dodson was in
Eastern Tn.

Millstone Baptist Church in 1789, both in Halifax County Va. (Halifact by Dr. W.B. Barbeer Danville Va 1941).

22 Apr 1788: The will of Jeremiah White named widow Jane and children William, Jeremiah, John, Hamilton, Robert, and Nancy, and sons-in-law Braxton Mabry, William Clark, James Hinton, and daughter Mary Hardaway.   It mentioned land on Lick Fork of Horsepen Creek in Charlotte County. 

Witnesses: Micajah Dodson and Tabitha Dodson.  

Jeremiah White, the son of Jeremiah Senior and Mary Clark Martin, also owned land on Sandy Creek in Pittsylvania adjoining Wisdon and Terry;

Sweeting Fork of Sandy Creek adjoining Thompson and Col. Robert Williams;

and Lick Fork of Horsepen Creek in Charlotte adjoining Joshua Chafing. 

Jeremiah's widow Jane White (nee Shelton) married James Johnson c. 1788. 

Richard and Letitia Johnson and James F. and Nancy Johnson, along with Jeremiah, William, John, Hamilton, and Robert White, sued William Clark and William White, co-executors of Jeremiah White, deceased.  Was Letitia a White?  See 15 Mar 1795.

before 1789 Winifred Johnson-Johnston DODSON evidently died before 1789 when her father died in Wilkes County NC, naming his grandchildren James, Rachel and Winifred Dodson in his will. In fact Winifred Johnson Dodson probably died several years earlier maybe in the 1770's.

 Rev William Dodson married a 2nd time but no record of this marriage has been found and the name of his 2nd wife is unknown. William Dodson is probably the William Dodson who became a member by Baptism of Broad Run Church of Fauquier Co. on 1764 May 13 and who was ex communicated in 1769.

From 1790 to 1795 William Dodson is fond on the Tax Lists of Pittsylvania Co. He lived on cascade Creek near his son in law Elijah Dodson-Dotson. Cascade Creek is the extreme Southwest part of Pittsylvania County and flows across the State line into North Carolina

DOCUMENT: Granville Co., NC Will Book 2, page 326 - WILL of John Hargrove written 9 Nov 1790, probated November Court 1792:

To wife (not named) half my plantation on Little Nutbush Creek., etc.

To son John all lands he holds on south side of Dodsons Creek (except that given son William) and half land in Warren County on Great Nutbush Creek.

Other half to son William adj Leonard Sims, Henry Lyne.

To daughter Fanny Hanks land on Lower Great Fork adj Wm Dodson,Richard Hargrove, Argen Hanks.

To daughter Nancy Collins land adj Robert Galligher and Henry


To daughter Molley land adj Fanny Hanks at Taylors Ferry.

To daughter Amey rest of land, etc. "...if either dies without heirs, their part to the survivors and also if daughters die, that part to

survivors...". Executors Leonard Sims and sons John & William. No witnesses.

June 1791, Raleigh Dodson purchased a tract of 163 acres at a
sheriff's sale, formerly the John Honeycutt property, which adjoined the
property of Elisha and Lazarus Dodson.

Roberta Estes From: robertajestes@att.net

3rd Sat. of March 1792 he Thomas Dodson is found in the records of Baptist Church on “ North Holston in Hawkins County” he is there with the following Thomas Dodson and Mary, Jesse Dodson and Ruth, Elisha Dodson and Rachel, Thomas Dodson, Nancy Dodson, Elizabeth Dodson, Utally Dodson, Alsey and Winifred Johnson. This church was located in Grainger Co. formed from Hawkins CO. and Knox Co. in 1796 very near the Hawkins Co. border.

1793 Halifax Co. Va Thomas Dodson’s son Jesse Johnson married Judith Combs in 1793 Halifax Co. Va. And they became members of Big Spring Baptist Church which was the parent Church of Rev. Thomas Murrell’s church.

In 1793 Rev. Jesse Dodson the brother of William Dodson and of Thomas Dodson is the minister of this Church.

Research Notes: In Rev. Thomas Murrell’s church is Agness Johnson the wife of Hudson Johnson

Raleigh Dodson wrote his will on July 20 1793. The date of probate is not known,
but indications are that he was alive in Nov. 1794 when he and his son James
sold tracts of 40 and 110 acres to Robert Brown (Hawkins deeds 2-328 and
2-329). This land may have involved the joint patent with Thomas Jackson
referred to in Raleigh Dodson's will, which land he left to his son James.

Raleigh Dodson does not name his wife in his will, but left to her his whole

estate both real and personal during her lifetime after which I leave to my
son Rawleigh the plantation on which I now live and another piece adjoining.
It was his patent land. Raleigh Dodson Jr, sold this land to James Breeden
on Jan 29 1806 and 'I, Mary Dodson, widow and relict of Raleigh Dodson,
decd, relinquish and quit claim my right, title and interest to this land."
(Hawkins deed 4-154)

The foregoing dower relinquishment proves that the widow of Raleigh Dodson

Sr. was named Mary. She may not have been his only wife although Mary also
signed when he sold his Caswell County, NC land before their journey to
Tennessee (then NC). It is possible that Raleigh Sr. also held title to
some property in Giles Co Tn. Court records there show that Mary Dodson,
widow of Raleigh, acted as administrator is some action (Giles Co court
minutes Sept 7 1815). The widow, Mary Dodson may have gone with her son
Raleigh Jr. to Alabama and then to Giles and Williamson Counties, Tn. It is
not known when or where she died, but she was dead by 1826.

Raleigh Dodson served in the Revolutionary War with his son Lazarus Dodson. The

North Carolina archives provided a roster of men who served from Washington
and Sullivan Counties which were then a part of North Carolina. Raleigh and
Lazarus were both listed as having served beginning August 16, 1782.

In 2008 and 2009, I visited Hawkins County and located the original land of

Raleigh Dodson on the Holston River. The land was subsequently owned by his
heirs, and a family cemetery with many unmarked graves lies in disrepair and
weeds today. I feel certain that this family cemetery that was located on
his land and is where his daughter Nellie and her husband John Saunders
lived, died and were buried as well is the final unmarked resting place of
Raleigh Dodson, Revolutionary War Patriot of Hawkins County, Tn.
