Dodgson's of Richmond colony Virginia
« on: Friday 07 May 21 13:10 BST (UK) »
Hello Richmond.
I am aware there are quite a few Dodgson families out there in Richmond Virginia and hope someone can enlighten me to add to my large Dodgson clan.
My 8th great/g father William Dodson was born in 1651 in Richmond colony.
Gathered his father was out there in early 1600s. There appears to be conflicting stories and would be grateful of some information. I know John Dod's was on Captain Smiths ship, sailing to Jamestown colony. This is about all knowledge I have of Richmond Dodgson's. The spelling is variant both sides of the water I noticed.
Dido.

Would it be worth trying the Virginia Genealogical Society to see if they can help you ?
This one might be non-profit making, so nothing gained, nothing lost.

Its so difficult when you get that far back, records lost, destroyed or not kept but those historical societies sometimes turn out to be helpful. Always nice if we can find one which doesn't charge  :)

Good Luck
Sandra  :)
