Notes for ELI DODSON:

Date of marriage of Eli Dodson Sr. is from family bible page. (Owner is Renee Cone Pero)

The Eli Dodson Jr. family bible page was written in Eli JR's own handwriting. The page has marriages and births on it. The bible page was given to his daughter Missouri Emoline Dodson Dees.

Then Missouri gave the bible page to her daughter Arria Viola Dees (ire).

Then Arria gave the bible page to her grand daughter Renee Cone Pero.

Then in the year 2002 Renee contacted a cousin by email named Martha Wilson. She stated that she had the bible page of Eli Dodson that was of deaths and one birth. Martha Wilson and her husband came to Wichita, Kansas to visit Arria and Renee. They compared the Bible Pages. The water marks that were on them was identical to each other. They were from the same Bible.

Arkansas History Commission Information On Eli Dodson Jr. ; Eli Dodson last address Hasty Arkansas. Date of birth 22 may 1828 at Spencer in the county of Vanburen the state of Tenn. Full name of father was Eli Dodson born at Halifax VA. He lived at Spencer Tenn. He was the son of William Dodson of Vanburen Co. Tenn. Maiden name of subject's mother Mary Goad she was the daughter of James Goad and Margarett who lived in Warren Co. Tenn. Eli Dodson Jr. went to school at Madison county Arkansas. Teacher's Scott, Sarton, and Carlock. Studied law at Yellville Arkansas under Mr. D. C. Williams. Entered the practice of law in 1858 in Marion county Arkansas. First Circuit Clerk of Marion County in1856-1860. State Judge of Boone County 1892-1896. Senator in 1872-1880 for Marion and Searcy Counties. County Judge of Marion County for years 1880-1882. Colonel of the 14th Regiment Arkansas in M. C. Calloughs command. Served from June 1862 - July 10, 1863. Resigned in Tupalo, Mississippi on account of wounded in the line of duty and ill health. Mr. Dodson was a Democrat, attended The Baptist Church regularly, and was a member of The A. F. & A. M. Was 97 years old when he died.

This is a story told to me (Renee Cone Pero) by my Grandmother Arria V. Dees and Leola Harris a cousin. This story is about Eli Dodson Jr. and William Andrew Dees. Eli Dodson Jr. and William A. Dees fought in the civil war. They fought on opposite sides at the beginning. William A. Dees was fighting for the north and Eli Dodson Jr. was for the south. Eli Dodson had captured a lot of men from the north an was moving them south. He got to the point he needed recruits to keep going. So Eli Dodson Jr. recruited the men he and his company captured. So instead of turning the ones in they caught, Eli Dodson Jr. swore them into his company and they fought for the south against the north. They fought at the Battle of Pea Ridge together. In the men that were captured was William A. Dees, who Eli knew. Later in life William A. Dees wanted his pension for fighting in the civil war. The pension for the south was more than the north. So he went to get his pension and the Judge said he had fought for the north not the south. William A. Dees went and got Col. Eli Dodson Jr. and Eli told the judge that Mr. Dees had fought with him at the Battle of Pea Ridge on the side of the south and that he would swear to that. Because of Eli Dodson Jr. being in good standings with the court, they believed him and granted Mr. William A. Dees his pension from the south. Of course they lost the Battle Of Pea Ridge, and both of them came home alive, to tell this story to their kids and grandchildren, so future family members would know what happened.

My Grandmother Arria used to sing this song to us that her grandfather Eli Dodson wrote about his twin girls.

The boys and girls they used to go a fishen in the brook,

with spools of thread for fishen line and bended pins for hooks.

They always wished for me to go but they always wished in vain,

for I'd rather be with Lilly Dell a swinging in the lane,

and yet I'd give this world to be with Rosa Nell again.

I'll never never shall forget out swinging in the lane.

Mr. Eli Dodson jr. was born on his father's farm in white county Tennessee. He was the only child of Eli Dodson Sr. and Mary Goad Dodson. Eli Dodson Sr. died right after his son was born, and Mary Goad Dodson died two and half years later. Eli Dodson jr. was raised by his Uncle Alexander Goad of white County Tennessee and later moved to Madison County Arkansas, and then to Yellville Marion County Arkansas. Worked in several counties, Searcy, Marion , and Boone.

I have so much information on Eli Dodson, articles from the Mt. Echo Newspaper at Yellville Arkansas. Census records for 1860, 1880 and 1910. Application for pension records, land plots he bought, proof of service for the state of Arkansas, physician records, obituary, infantry papers, Marion county cemetery records, judge records, family bible pages, newspaper article, pictures of cemetery, pictures of Eli Dodson, Mary Catherine Cantrell Dodson, Sarah Virginia Dodson Young, Eli Dodson and Missouri and her girls, Alice Dodson, Bina Dodson Crain, Missouri E. Dodson Dees, a group of six Dodson brother and sister's, and of Arria V. Dees.

Of course I had a lot of help from family and Relatives in the past 30+ years. To name a few, Floyd H. Cone, Arria V. Dees, Marilyn Crawford, Sharon Pratt, Martha Wilson, Linda Fry, and William Barron. (Thank you to all of you for your help. Rene'e Cone Pero)

Burial: Feb 1921, Eli Dodson Family Cemetery Yellville Marion County Arkansas

Military service: Civil War

Occupation: judge

More About RHODA CAROLINE CANTRELL:

Burial: Apr 1870, Eli Dodson Family Cemetery Yellville Marion County Arkansas

Notes for SARAH E. HASTINGS:

To lay to rest the question about the name of Eli Dodson jr. second Wife.

The Eli Dodson family bible page very plainly says Sarah E. S_ slen.

On marriage page, It says: Eli Dodson jr. & Sarah E. S_ slen was married July 30 1870.

On Death page, It says: Sarah E. Dodson died Feb. 16 1871.

Now Sarah was married before to a William Hastings or Hasten. Can't prove either name at this point.

Some people say Eli Dodson jr. buried Sarah E. Dodson by her first husband. Now my Grandmother Arria V. Dees says she is buried behind where Eli Dodson jr. is buried. In fact she says all three wives are buried around Eli Dodson jr.. One on each side of him and one behind him, that makes three wives.

First wife= Rhoda Caroline Cantrell, Second wife = Sarah E. S_slen, and Third wife= Mary Catherine Cantrell. Yes Rhoda C. Cantrell and Mary C. Cantrell are sisters.

There is a book (A reminiscent History of the Ozark Region Written in 1894) that says Eli Dodson jr. second wife is Mary E. Hastings. I can not say this is wrong, but i can say my bible page that was written in Eli Dodson jr. own hand says different. Plus my Grandmother Arria (Who at this date (Feb. 2004) is still alive at almost 101, with a very good mind) says the second wives name is Sarah. How dose she know? Eli Dodson jr. was her grandfather and Eli use to live with them in his old age. Census records of 1910 Newton county Arkansas proves this, that Eli was living with daughter Missouri and her husband John Alvin Dees. Not that I dispute what my Grandmother says, it just gives more proof.

Then there is the story of the Old Tom Woods Cemetery. Where William Hastings or Hasten is laid to rest. Now I do know it was an Indian Cemetery before the white man used it. Which is just up the hill from the Eli Dodson Cemetery in a very wooded area. But as to if Sarah E. Dodson is buried there ? All I can say is she is buried with her second husband Eli Dodson jr. Will we ever know for sure where Sarah is buried? Take your pick.

Information from Martha Wilson; Page from cemetery book of Marion county for Eli Dodson Cemetery.

The left side of the stone reads; First wife Caroline. The back side of the stone reads; Second wife Sarah. The right side of the stone reads; Third wife Catherine.

Arria Viola Dees said the front side was for Eli Dodson information when he died. Then Arria told me that The State was thinking about putting a lake or a dam in very near the Dodson cemetery. The state started moving a lot of the people that were in the graveyard. That Garland and Bob Cecil moved the headstone of Eli Dodson Jr. to his barn for safe keeping. But the state decided not to do what they had planed and did not move anymore people from the cemetery. To say the least Eli Dodson headstone never got put back. So what has happened to the headstone of Eli Dodson jr. we don't know. But Martha Wilson went to the government and got a civil war headstone put on Eli Dodson jr. grave.

One more small tidbit of information. Through the years the family has passed down information on each other. There is a story that Sarah E. Dodson died while pregnant, neither her or the baby lived.

Spouse: (1) John Alvin Dees (2) Ben Carver

Notes for JOHN ALVIN DEES:

John Alvin Dees son of William Andrew Dees and Margaret Choat Dees. Stood about 6 foot tall, with dark Auburn hair and brown eyes. Lived on and worked on a farm owned by Ben Carver and got paid one dollar a day, that was for him and his son Herby. Sometimes worked for the lumber mill for extra money. He could figure out how much lumber to build a house almost to the board. He never had an education but he could sign his name and he could figure out how much lumber you needed to build anything. He use to go hunting with Arria for squirrels and possum, and loved to fish. He was close to his brothers Pete and Jesse Dees. He was never mean like his dad William A. Dees. All of his children had a least a third grade education. Only got to go to school three months out of the year, the rest of the time they all worked in the fields, the girls were not paid even a dime. Every Sunday they would go to church. Missouri could cook the best cornbread in a old iron skillet. They would go to crooked creek and wash cloths with an old scrub board and big iron pot to heat water in over an open fire.

After the death of John, Missouri could not make it on her own. When Ben Carver ask her to marry him she said yes. Ben Carver was a mean man and life only got harder for Missouri. Ben Carver bought a house from Lucy Harding. Missouri was living there with her kids and Mary Alls. They was paying by the month for it. Behind her back Ben Carver deeded it to Missouri's son Haskel Dees. Missouri or Mary heard that Ben was going to sale the house. Mary had $100.00 and was willing to pay it off for Missouri.

When they went to Lucy Harding to pay it off, she would not take the money. Missouri and Mary went to a lawyer and told him the story. He said to take two witnesses and if Lucy would not take the money the house would be paid off and Haskel would woe nothing else. So off they went with there two witnesses to Luch Harding's to pay the house off. Which this time Lucy took the money and Haskel Dees owned the house now. When Ben Carver found out he was so mad he through Mary Alls out. Ben and Missouri was not married to much longer, because he died. Mary Alls went to live with her nephew Pete. Pete and Mary had a fallen out and Pete through Mary and her feather bed out on the front lawn. When Jesse Dees and Lavona Dees Mitchell heard about this they went to get her, she was curled up on her feather bed like a baby, (it was winter) and took her home to live with them until her death.
