Wilkes County in 1805, William Dodson and his son William Dodson are on the tax lists for Wilkes County in 1805, taxed for 300 acres and 100 acres in Capt. John Carne's District.
1805 ERA I borrowed my brother James' pony and rode 40 miles to Uncle Thomas Gibbons, there being no Baptist Church nearer. He and Aunt Polly were members, father was there at the church meeting on Saturday, when the door was opened for anyone to come forward and join by telling an ex- perience of grace. I went forward immediately. The going forward was such a cross that I hardly knew what I was doing. I told what I had to tell. Only one question was asked me by Nimrod Dodson, who was the leading member of the church, namely, "Did you ever see that it was just in God to send you to hell?" I answered "yes" for I knew it would not do to say "no," although I knew at the time I had not any extraordinary view.Abner Hills’s Autobiography that appeared in Judge Joe Meredith’s Hill’s family book, A Family History: Hill, Meredith, Lowery, 1966.
