Help me with the DOSS family. I'm looking for information on my great-grandfather's family. His name is William Thomas DOSS, believed to be thebrother of Charles DOSS d. 1936 in Anderson Co. TX and a sister Martha Lavada(LaVota) DOSS SULLIVAN also who went to Anderson Co. TX. He maybe had anotherbrother James Luther DOSS b. 1860-62 also went to Anderson Co. TX. He hada child there in 1901. The record of the birth said James Luther was bornin Bartow Co. GA William Thomas DOSS may have been the son of John LemuelDOSS and Tabithan COCHRAN. John was b. about 1824 and maybe the son of JamesDOSS. Azariah DOSS maybe the father of James DOSS.
