    Gender Male 
    History 1860 census shows him married to Sarah A. and lists her age as 31 and gives us her middle initial of ‘A’. It shows they have eight children living with them at the time. 1880 census states both parents born in Kentucky. 1892 California, Voter Registers, 1866-1898 shows he is still alive at 75 years old, listed as a farmer in San Miguel, California. 
    Occupation Laborer, Farmer 
    Died Bef 1900 
    Notes 
    • Jack and his family moved to Washington State after 1880 and before 1882 as their son Willis was born there in 1882 and their daughter Emma was born there in 1886. He and his family are found in the Washington State and Territorial Censuses, 1857-1892, for the 1883 year living in Whitman County, Washington. After 1886, Jack and his family moved to the Cholame Valley, Monterey, California. I find Permelia on the 1900 census listed as a widow, a farmer, and with her are: son Sneed D. Dodd born Oct 1879, Oregon, 20 yrs; son Willis M. Dodd born Feb 1882, Washington, 18 yrs; daughter Emma E. Dodd born June 1886, Washington, 13 yrs. I would guess Jack died in Cholame Valley, Monterey, California between 1890 and 1900. Jack's son, Andrew - from his marriage to Sarah - lives in the town of San Miguel, and is married to Permelia's daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Henry - from her marriage to Mr. Henry. Permelia is buried in the San Miguel Cemetery and Jack Dodd could be buried there in an unmarked grave. Permelia's daughter, Sarah, and her sons, Sneed and Willis are buried there as well.
      Jack Dodd was born in Livingston Co. Kentucky about 1818. He was married three times and had 13 children. He lived most of his life in Livingston County but at the age of 55 he helped organize a wagon train and headed for California. The wagon train consisted of his children, grandchildren, and neighbors. They settled in southern Monterey County, on the east side of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, in the area known as Pleyto Ranch & Stage Stop. The wagon train arrived in the fall of 1874 and they were forever-after known as "The Kentuckians". A man named Paulson wrote an early history of the area in 1875 and referred to the wagon train of 43 persons from Kentucky as recently arriving and the folks were buying property and planning to stay in the area. Families of the wagon train were Dodd, Ramage, McCandles, McElheny, Springs, and there could be others that I have not found as yet.
