You have as much information as I have on her, but do you have information on her ancestors. If not, I will share gladly.

Dear Robert, re your g-grandmother Geneva Elizabeth Dossey, b. 1879, she was the daughter of Joseph Morgan Dossey, Jr., son of my g-grandfather Joseph MOrgan Dossey b. 1824. She was born of Joseph Morgan Dossey, Jr. b. June 21, 1856 TX, d. August 7, 1891 Limestone Co., TX, buried LaSalle Cemetery near Grosbeck, married Sarah Emeline O'Pry b. June 18, 1856 Ark., married Dec. 13, 1877 TX.

Geneva Elizabeth Dossey b. 1879 would have been the aunt of my g-grandmother ROSA LEE DOSSEY b. 1876/7 Limestone Co., Tx. (or Leon Co.) She was the half sister of Joseph Morgan Dossey, Jr.

I am looking for the second wife of Joseph Morgan Dossey b. 1824. His first wife was Mary C. Clingman b. Feb. 6, 1824 TN, d. January 2, 1862, married December 17, 1843 Hempsted Co., Ark.

The second wife I am looking for is my gg-grandmother Jane b. 1842-1844 MO. It is possible that her maiden name might have been Grindle.

I have more information. I am not sure what you have. I would love to share.

Thanks,

Dennie Hodge
