Dozier family in Coffee County John Jackson Dozier
Sunday, 18-Feb-01 11:26:33

    Message: writes:

    I am trying to find the father of John Jackson Dozier listed in the 1860 Coffee co. census and in the 1880 Coffee county census. I have read quite a bit of information on the Doziers and this generation is missing. His son, Daniel , listed as being 3 months old in the 1860 census is my husbands grandfather. Any information as to his death, etc. would be appreciated.

    I also noticed a query about the old Dozier cemetery. It was mentioned as a newly found cemetery. Anyone have any information about this? I hear there is one on the Davis property , is this the same one?

    My name is Jeff Howard. I was searching for someone born in Coffee county
    and came across this site. The following information comes from my maternal
    grandmother, who is in her 80's now and sometimes gets facts a little mixed
    up. However, my mother and aunts, who have known much of this story over the
    years, feel pretty good about the accuracy of the information. Here is my

    My grandmother and grandfather were married in 1932 in Blount County. My
    grandmother's younger sister, Ruby Price, came to live with them shortly
    after they were married. Somewhere along the way, Ruby became pregnant by my
    grandfather in the mid-30's. Because of the potential for an embarrassing
    family scandal, my grandfather, grandmother, and Ruby soon moved to Elba, AL,
    to carry out Ruby's pregnancy, have the baby, and find someone to take the
    baby. Apparently, my grandfather found work in Elba, and that's why they
    went there. He sent for the other two to join him by train after he found

    While in Elba, they rented a house from someone named Pearl Mcgehee
    (spelling?). They told her the situation while they were there. After the
    baby was born, Pearl fell in love with the baby. It was a beautiful girl
    with a head full of black hair. Pearl said she knew a couple who could not
    have kids and who would love to have the baby. So, they left the baby with
    Pearl. My grandmother thinks that Pearl may have even kept the baby herself
    because she was so crazy about the baby. We don't know for sure.

    Pearl named the baby Montes or Montez (spelling?). There is a small chance
    it was named Margarett Ann, but we think Montes or Montez or something
    similar. We don't know if this name was retained or not.

    My grandmother says she was born on December 16th somewhere between 1934 and
    1938. We can't be sure of this date because of her memory, but she insists.

    My grandmother and grandfather went on to have six children and they were a
    great and loving family. My grandmother and Ruby are both still alive,
    although Ruby is in a nursing home with Alzheimers Disease.

    My mother and aunts would love to know what ever became of their half-sister.
    She shares their father, and her mother is their mother's sister.

    My grandfather's name was Ralph Henderson Richey. My grandmother said that a
    doctor delivered the baby, not a midwife.

    Any information we could learn about our missing relative would be GREATLY
    appreciated. She would be in her early to mid 60's now.

She is 70 yoa. Both she and William Enoch were born in NC. I believe the older woman is William Enoch's mother.

Seeking information regarding the family of Burrell H. & Gerina (SIZEMORE MOORE) ROBINSON. They appear with children on the 1860 census of Coffee Co., AL, and apparently resided in the portion that became part of Crenshaw Co. in 1866, as they appear in this county on the 1870 census. Burrell (1822-1904) m1. 1844 in Talbot Co, GA to Ferlinia SIZEMORE (b. 1828). Known children: John G. ROBINSON, b. ca. 1846; Thomas Richard ROBINSON, b. 1848; and Mary Ann ROBINSON (b. 1849?). Ferlinia's sister Gerina (sometimes Jurina) SIZEMORE (b. 1823) m. 1844 in Talbot Co, GA to Asa C. "Acee" MOORE (b. ca. 1817). Known children: William M. MOORE, b. 1845; Rhoda Emily MOORE, b. ca. 1847, m. Noah McHENRY; James R. MOORE, b. ca. 1849; and Caroline G. MOORE, b. 1852. Ferlinia d. 1850-52, and Acee d. 1852. Burrell m. 1852 in Talbot Co. to his former sister-in-law Gerina. Acee MOORE's siblings went to court to gain control of his estate so that Acee's money would not go to support Burrell ROBINSON's children by his first wife or from his "intermarriage" with Gerina, so Burrell and Gerina moved before 1860 to AL. That year, Gerina's father, George Washington SIZEMORE, appeared in their household. Children of Burrell and Gerina: Clarah A. ROBINSON, b. ca. 1854; and Burrell S. ROBINSON, b. ca. 1857. Interested in any information regarding this family. Will be glad to furnnish background (SIZEMORE), as well as descendants of both Thomas R. and Mary Ann ROBINSON to those interested.
