Mr. Dodson, thanks for your query - all I know about the Dodson/Estes connection is that Obadiah Estes, son of Charles and Mary Thaxton, m. Anna Dodson, supposed to be dau. of Joel Dodson. Their son was Joel Dodson Estes who m. Charlotte Scott - this marriage probably was c. 1800, possibly a little after. This is my direct line, but am sorry to say I know very little about this time period in the family history. Surely there are many connections we don't know about yet. Will check my Estes book and misc. notes and see if I can find something more. Will let you know ASAP. Other Greenville Co. connections are Rice, Traynham, Atkins, Thomason, Baldwin, Richards. More later - Lu Edwards

I have information on this line. I don't know what you're looking for specifically, but the children of Joel Dodson Estes and Charlotte Scott were: Osborne - Melinda - Henson Scott (b. 1811) - Mahala - Charlotte - Elizabeth - Joel Mareon - Chauncy - Amanda. I also have information on the second and third generation of Henson Scott Estes. I am a descendent of Reuben Estes - youngest son of Charles and Mary (Thaxton) Estes. I have quite a bit of information on this Estes family. Contact me if you need more.

Thank you for the information. I did not have John and Joel as sons but found them living near Charles and Mary Thaxton in Greenville Co., SC. I have also seen Reuban listed as a son but have no documentation. Charles Sr. had a brother named Reuban b. 1738. in Hanover. If I find more information about this generation, I will post it. Still concerned about family listings that show Sarah Bennett as a second wife of Charles, Sr. (His brother, Richard Jr. married Sarah Bennett, and she had a neice who married an Estes but I can't find a marriage record for Charles, Sr. and Sarah.) Joshua may have died in Gwinnett County, GA. Elizabeth Estes is listed as a widow there on the 1850 census. Age matches Elizabeth Hulsey.
Do you show Charles, Sr. as a son or Richard and Mary Yancy?
