      Posted by: Lewis Dozier Date: November 10, 2001 In Reply to: Re: James Seaborn Dozier, Revolutionary Sol. by James O. King James Seaborn Dozier was my great-great-great-great Grandfather. He was born in Lunenburg Parish, Virginia, and died in Warren County, Georgia on 2 January 1808.

      My father's notes show this: Sgt of Artillery, 1776 to 1780, Virginia State Line.

      He married Mary Dinwoody (Dinwiddie, Dunwoody); she was born in 1746, Culpepper, Virginia. Mary Dinwoody (Dinwiddie) was the daughter of Lawrence Dinwiddie and Elizabeth Kennedy. Lawrence Dinwiddie was born in 1797, in Virginia; his father was Robert Dinwiddie (b. 1669, Virginia) and his mother was Elizabeth Cummings.. Lawrence Dinwiddie's brother was Lt. Governor Robert Dinwiddie, of Virginia. Reference DAR ID# 111677. Lunenburg Co., Virginia.

      James S. Dozier's will is recorded in Warren County, GA Will Book 1793-1810 pp 89, 90, 91. His name is found on a granite marker located on the lawn of the Warren County Courthouse in Warrenton, Georgia, dedicated to the soldiers found to date buried in Warren County who fought in the War for American Independence 1776 - 1783. See also DAR Nat. No. 67511 and 102846.

      Miscellaneous notes on James Seaborn Dozier
      From a letter to J. L. Dozier, Sr., from Elizabeth F. Johnson, Surveyor General Department, Office of the Secretary of State, Department of Archives and History, 330 Capitol Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA 30334, dated 25 July 1988: \"In searching our records I do not find that James Dozier received a land grant in Georgia by means of headright or bounty grant. Georgia held six land lotteries to distribute the land. I checked each of these lotteries. "In the 1805 Land Lottery James Dozier, Sr. of Warren County drew two blank tickets. "Some people in the lotteries would draw a blank ticket or tickets. If there were, for example, 1000 land lots and 2000 people registered to draw, there would be 1000 blank tickets added so that the tickets would equal the number of people drawing "James Dozier was not a fortunate drawer in the 1807, 1820 or 1821 Land Lotteries. [James Sr. died in 1808 so his son James Jr. must have continued to take a chance -- Doziers have never been lucky, it seems, in drawings or lotteries.] "In the 1827 Land Lottery James F. [S??] Dozier of Columbia County drew land lot #52 in the 14th District of original Carroll County. James C. Dozier of Twiggs County drew land lot #66 in the 23rd District of original Muscogee County. "In the 1832 Cherokee County Lottery James Dozier of Wilkes County drew land lot #679 in the 14th District of the 1st Section of original Cherokee County. The orphans of James P. Dozier of Monore [sic] County drew land lot #329 in the 3rd District From Some Early Tax Digests of Georgia, Georgia Department of Archives and History, 1926. Warren Co., record for James shows 1 poll, 8 slaves, 250 land, 2 quaty, Warren Co., Killgore Grantee, Little River (Waters), Bull (joiners), $3.66 1/4; 300 l

      James had eight children, William S., John, James Seaborn Jr., Dunwoody, Thomas, Leonard Wesley, Richard Talley, and Elizabeth. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Re: James Seaborn Dozier, Revolutionary Sol. Posted by: Ann Date: November 01, 1999 In Reply to: Re: James Seaborn Dozier, Revolutionary Sol. by Jim Dozier Actually, there were 2 James Dozier's who both married Mary's. The first lived in Bute Co., NC (later called Warren Co., North Carolina), and the second fought in Virginia, Sgt. James Dozier and later moved to Warren Co., Georgia, where we find many other ancestors and cousins. -------------------------------
      Sgt. James Dozier was in Virginia as late as May 14, 1783, that source, "Sergt. of Artillery, received through John Kay on 14 May 1783 back pay . . . L93-12ss-6d (D.A.R. Nat. No. 102846). "Records during the Rev. War, show that Sgt. James Dozier wife's name was Mary Dunwoody/Dinwoody...not Mary Malone! That quote, "McCall, Mrs. Howard H., Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers of Georgia (1969, rep. 1996) says James's wife was Mary Dunwoody or Dinwoody, but without citation." And the more obvious, my family descends from Dinwoody Dozier, being named for both his mother's maiden name and father's surname...and for several generations the name Dinwoody appears. ------------------------------------
      The first, James Dozier, was in Bute Co. NC as early as 1764, source for date..."Rebecca L. Dozier cites 1764 renunciation of dower by Mary Melone as proof that she was the wife of James (Warren Co., NC DB A, p. 40) also Warren Co.,NC was formed from Bute Co., NC, 1779; his records being recorded in Warren Co., NC. For Warren Co., NC formation: Census records record the following: Dosier, James, NC, BUTE CO., 1771 Source: Colonial America, 1607-1789 NC Census Index, page 96, which is a 19 year difference. (1783 year Sgt. James Dozier received money from John Kay - 1764 earliest recorded date of James Dozier being in Bute Co., NC. = 19 years difference) Records recorded with Historical Society's which show that Sgt. James Dozier wife's name was Mary Malone, will be corrected. As for now, that has not been done. If you know of any, please let me, so that I can address the problem...thank you:) -------------------------------
      Sgt. James Dozier was probably the son of Richard Dozier III, as proof, "DOZIER, RICHARD, 12 Jan. 1786; 30 May 1791. James son of Richard Dozier Jr.; nephew Joseph Dozier; nephew Thomas Dozier; niece Betty Walker Dozier.Wills of Westmoreland County, Virginia /Author: Augusta B. Fothergill/Call Number: F232.W4F7/ This book contains the wills of Westmoreland County Virginia.Bibliographic Information: Fothergill, Augusta B. Wills of Westmoreland County Virginia. Appeals Press. 1925. ------------------------------------
      But both James Dozier's appear to have been cousins, who both descended from Leonard Dozier I.

      “James Dozier, the eldest son of Leonard III and Ann Dozier of Lunenburg County, Virginia, was born September 3, 1737 in Richmond County, Virginia and is mentioned in the Will of his father, recorded January 31, 1785 Lunenburg County. The date of his birth is taken from the pages of his father’s old Bible which is now in possession of California Doziers. He first immigrated to South Carolina with his sister, Ann, and settled on the Pee Dee River where his brother, Captain John Dozier, also lived. He is thought to have served in the Revolutionary War in that state, where his brother, John, was Captain in Marion’s Brigade. Later he moved to Georgia and settled on Little River in Columbia County. His sister, Ann
      moved to Georgia with him and married a Webb. He married Mary Dinwoody (also spelled Dunwoody) in 1762, most probably in Lunenburg County, although no record of marriage is recorded there. He died January 2, 1808, and will is recorded in Warren County, Georgia”
      “I do not know that Aunt Ann ever married. I have heard that she came from VA with her brother, James Dozier."
