|My name is Sue Ramger and I am looking for information about my great-grandfather. His name was James C. Dodd. He was born in Chatham County in October 10, 1820. I’m really looking for his parents. I sure that they had to be in Chatham County at the time of his birth. They were born in Virginia. I will appreciate any help that I can receive. He lived in Cabarrus County and I’ve looked in Cabarrus County Courthouse for deeds or wills, but only found his name in the 1850 census. He died in Monroe County, TN October 3, 1890.|
