The Doziers: James Ingo, Leonard, et al.
James Ingo Dozier, the man and his children
James Ingo Dozier was a very active citizen in Virginia from the mid-1700s until about 1779. He first appears in records in Richmond County, Virginia, and then progressively in records of other Virginia Counties upstream along the Potomac River, including Prince William, Fairfax and Lunenburg. He bought, sold and leased significant acreages of land and served as a constable.
James Ingo Dozier came to Madison County, Ky., from Virginia about
1779, along with five sons and four daughters, all of them either
adults or near adulthood. Some were married; others married in
Kentucky. The sons were Leonard, who stayed in Madison County,
Thomas, who went to Missouri about 1810 to practice medicine,
Zachariah, James and John.
His brothers left Madison County to settle elsewhere, leaving Leonard Dozier as the patriarch of nearly all subsequent Doziers in Madison County. This document includes detailed notes and outlines four generations of his descendants.
The estate sale of Caroline Foster Dozier, widow of Fortunatus Dozier, was conducted on Dec. 27, 1916 at her home at Stringtown (between Valley View and Million on Tates Creek Road). This list includes the items sold, the buyers (in alphabetical order) and the amounts paid.
