My Dodson records show that Martha Dodson Buckner was a dau of Joseph Dodson (b. Halifax Co., VA) and his first wife Sarah Richardson. Joseph’s ancestors go back to Richmond Co., VA and Charles Dodson Sr.
Shortly after Joseph took a second wife, Martha Davis 22 Sep 1819 in Pittsylvania Co., VA he removed to TN. He died in Maury County in 1854.
Joseph’s children by his 2nd wife (who probably married in TN) were:
Ann Eliza (b.1820), Augustine (b. 1823), Monroe Asa (b. 1826), Major Morgan (b.1828), Almeda (n.1829), Newton Jasper (b.1831) & Permelia White (b.1834)
Joseph had 10 children from his first wife including Rev’d Thomas N. Dodson (b.1804) who died in Arkansas. Also William Dodson who married Catherine Permelia Blanche Davis (sister of his father’s 2nd wife) in Pittsylvania Co., VA. They had 7 children according to “History of Dickson Co., TN.” They are buried near Charlotte, in Dickson Co.
If anyone is researching Dodsons in TN it is wise to look at Pittsylvania and neighboring Halifax Co. in VA. Most of these are descendents of Charles Dodson Sr. of Richmond Co., VA.
