My ggrandfather was born in Berwick on Tweed (England or Scotland) sometime in the 1820s. His name is William Mould DODDS with parents John DODDS and Rennie BOWMAKER.
I have found many of their children, namely David, John, James, Alison, Elizabeth and Robert. these all born 1818-1831.
John DODDS senior was a Mason. His marriage to Rennie took place at chirnside Berwick on 26th Dec 1817.
I believe some of the brothers settled in south Africa.
Does anyone have this family in their tree?

I have a Mary Dodds Keiss, born I think 10th May 1893. She married James Dryburgh August 20th 1913 in Roxburgh. He was born possibly 23-Jan-1887and was in the Northern Division Army Veterinary Corps.Their children were Jean, Arthur and Shena. Shena was my mother in law born 18-Dec-1915 and died 26-Apr-2001. I remember visiting Mary in 1980, as far as I remember she was living just outside Coldstream at the time, she lived until she was about 96 years old. Possibly one of 12 children. Any information would be appreciated

I hope that you get this since it has been some time since you posted.

My wife's gggranfather was James Joseph Dodds b abt 1823 in Berwick, married to Mary Catherine Scott of Yeatham, emigrated to America in 1853 with their year old son, Joseph. They eventually settled in Mercer Co, PA and had about 10 children including Anna Scott Dodds, my fie's ggrandmother. I don't know any more at this time. I'm wondering if he might be a distant relative?
