In Reply to: Floy Kate, Ga., b 1898 by Ronald Melton of 98

hi Ronald, I know this is a reply to an old post , but I just came accross this site, and immediately was drawn to the name Floy Kate Dodgen. this lady was my grandfathers sister. his name was Fred Lee Dodgen, and was born in New Georgia around 1904( we are not positive if 1903 nor 1904 due to bad records keeping.) anyway he lived in the metro Atlanta area most of his life ,mostly in Cobb county Ga.which is where he died. he was 83 years old when he passed. I personally don't know much about Floy, but have heard my dad use her name a lot. I don;t know much other info on Floy though sorry, but her other siblings were Ralph J. dodgen( I was named after uncle Ralph,who was my father's favorite uncle, my middle name is Ralph.)Ralph was born in 1901. next was my grandfather Fred Lee, the book" the dodgen story" lists his date of birth as 1905 but he always told us either 1903 or 1904. and last but not least was Mary Turner Dodgen born in 1907. their parents names were william luther,( my father was named after him, his middle name is Luther.) and Sebie Lee Dodgen. sorry I cannot give you any more information than that, but it is about all I know. the Dodgen's have been in cobb county Ga for over a hundred and fifty years and were instrumental in settling cobb county.my part of the family was mostly from the Austell, Mableton area, but we are spread out all over the metro area. there is still a Dodgen road ,named in memory of our family in mableton ga today. most of our relatives are buried in Mt. Harmony church cemetary on Bankhead hwy, just outside of Mableton. I don't know if Floy is buried there or not ,but if I can remember to ask my dad, maybe he knows. sorry to give such a long reply to your question but I could go on forever talking about my proud family heritage! hope you get all the info you are looking for ,and if you have any questions you can e-mail me and I will be glad to give any info I may have. ( I do have in my possesion a copy of "the Dodgen story" by Mary Dodgen Few),which has an immense amount of information on the Dodgen family all the way back to the late 1600's to the early 1700's till the 1980's ( by the way it was signed by Floy in the back of the book,this was my father's book.)one last thing, the book lists the name of James S dodgen married to Martha Ann Gann, not John S.
