Hiram Elbert Dossett(born in NC around 1810) lived in Echo Beat 9 on farm land near the Judah's large tract of property and this is reflected on the 1840 census. He was married to Jane Metcalf and they had three children. His son William James Dossett served in the Civil War in Georgia. Is there any information that may have been passed down that will tell me a bit more about my ancestor Hiram Elbert Dossett? He died young and his widow Jane married Thomas J. Mathews (Mathis)and they had a few more children together. The Dossett's that were born and raised in Dale County married into the Maund, Brannon, Woodham, Smith, and Baldwin families. I hope you have a few tid bits of information to share with me!
