Yes, and here is what I have. Please use what I give you as a clue and not proof. Most has been proven but I'm human and makes mistakes. If you can add or correct, please feel free to do so. I have more info on Robert Dossett and this family but I have not entered it in my files yet. Robert and Wealthy were involved while he was married, and had at least one sons together. He took his mothers last name, Smith. He had two sets of children, one set in Campbell County and one set in Anderson County. His children did not like Wealthy very well and didn't like the fact that he cared for her. He married her after his second wife died much later in life. After his death, there was a law suit from his children over Wealthy and his property. I need to find that. It's very interesting.IF I find it, I will place it here for you to read.
