Doshier Family Genealogy Forum
Sorry, her birth name is unknown. Her mother was California Dosher, b. 9/3/1857 Jacksboro, TX, d. 6/11/1924 Albuquerque, NM (of James B. Dosher and Viola Matilda Eddings). Maude's father is unknown, and no marriage record has been found despite a very thorough search in northern TX. As California was part Cherokee, there is a remote chance of an Indian marriage; her whereabouts between 1870 and 1883 are not known. California married Edward Williams in 1883, probably in OK; though no record survives, the marriage is reported in Army documents in connection with his service there at that time.
She is not Williams' daughter; his subsequent children knew her as a half sibling. She is not seen in census records in 1880 or 1900, when the Williams family was enumerated in UT.
Please do advise if you learn anything.
