Estate Sale:  Caroline Foster Dozier 1916

About 1949, Robert E. Lee Dozier, son of Caroline Foster Dozier, came to live with his neice and my grandmother, Annie Christopher Million.  He brought with him his “papers” in shoe boxes.  These were handed down to my mother, Evelyn Million Parks, and then to me, Robert James Parks.  


Included was a poster advertising Caroline Dozier's estate sale on Dec. 27, 1916, and a small L&N Railroad account book with a list of items, names and prices.  However, there was no heading on the list or anything to identify it.


To connect these two items, I asked Ed Million, my grandfather, whose name was on the list, if he remembered the sale.  He said he did.  I asked if he bought anything.  He couldn't remember, which was odd because the list said he bought an old mare for $155, the most expensive property sold.  Surely, he would remember that.  


So I asked him about the horse.  He remembered.  Yes, he bought it – and sold it that same day for a $5 profit.  That's why he didn't remember at first.  


I have ordered this list alphabetically by the name of the buyer.  Otherwise, I

have attempted to be true to the original, including the use of Uncle Bob’s spellings (which varied).  


The sale was conducted at Caroline Dozier's home in Stringtown (about halfway between Million and Valley View on the Tates Creek Pike).  She died about a year later.
