Dodge County Settlers

A website dedicated to determining and preserving data on people associated with Dodge County, Georgia.  Dodge County, with a consistent population around 20,000 people, has made significant contributions to other counties all over the United States.  This site's purpose is to identify the people living in Dodge County at some point in time so that people can find their roots in the county.

To accomplish this, a thorough research of other websites, genealogy sites and physical gravesites has been conducted.  Graves are very important in remembering one's family and being able to verify data on ancestors.  This site is divided into two parts, cemeteries and genealogical data.  This data is shown for Dodge County only, with a few exceptions.  therefore you will find some families that are not listed intact as some of the children did not live in Dodge County as the parents moved around.  Also, there are several cemeteries that are listed that are just outside of the County lines, but were used by Dodge Countians for burial. 

This website is dedicated to the past and present members of the Wiregrass Genealogical Society who encouraged me in my early years of research.

Tools:  used for research were:

Cemeteries of Dodge County (1827 - 1989) Survey conducted by Chester and Martha Saunders
Dodge County Georgia Cemeteries (2003) Survey conducted by Wiregrass Genealogical Society
