Barr Wilson who wrote many manuscripts about Ritchie and Doddridge County families worked with James M (Jim) Dotson in 1992 to publish "Richard Dotson (1752 to 1847) and His Descendants" which is now out of print. As many of you know, Barr died this year, but Jim Dotson has sent me all of the Dotson research they did together, and given us permission to make the book available on line for research. There are many allied Ritchie and some Doddridge County families in this book. You can view it at my Family Tree Maker website (the last entry under "Related Files). If you descend from Richard Dotson, I would like to hear from you since our next project is a CD with the book, photos and other information about our Dotson heritage.
