      The Greenham Geneaology info I have is;

      Charles Dodson Sr (1) to Thomas Dodson Sr.(3) to Greenham Dodson
      (19).......
      Greenham Dodson (19)Born C1720. Married to Elinor Hightower C1739,
      father of John Hightower in Richmond County Va. Children as follows;
      Judith Dodson (75) B 6 Jan 1741, Hightower Dodson (76), Thomas Greenham Dodson
      (My Progenitor) (77), George (George the Preacher) (78), William (79), and
      Eleanor (80) I suspect you have your lineage all the way to your point.



      I have about a page from the Lucas description of Greenham in Virginia
      but I suspect your research is considerably past me. The first Dodson I have
      documented was John Dodson, a passenger in 1607, on the ship, the "Ann"
      (Virginia Mag. of History, Vol 23, p11, with minutes in the Council and General
      Court, 1622, and 1629. It was reported (ink folio 105 and 106) a description of
      complaints on the boat for the " fortnight or three weeks abourde before they
      had any breakfast allowed". This remaining description covered the difficulties
      of a long trip. The Ege lineage gave the Dodson ancestor of John Dodson to be
      the sons of Jesse and William but to date I only have assumptions. We may never
      find the John Dodson or (Dods) answer.

      This past year I have spent my time working to finish a historical novel of
      the Civil War that occured along the Mississippi River and St. Louis area. I'm
      editing Chapter 14 with only two more to go, so I'm near the end. For that
      reason I have slipped away from my geneaology work. Sorry, but I'm not much
      help.

      Best Regard..........Burt
