Marcus L. Dozier & Martha L. Baker
Home ] Up ]


        MARCUS  DOZIER is believed to have died in Jackson, Tennessee. His wife brought their 4 sons and 1 daughter to Lonoke County, Arkansas where she died in 1887. Her son Marcus Hogg married Adaline Bailey and lived in Arkansas until May of 1901 when he left for California. The other sons, Jim and George, departed about this same time for Georgia.

        MARCUS apparently moved his family around a lot. According to census records they lived in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Arkansas.  According to the 1880 Lonoke County, Arkansas Census records, both of MARTHA's parents were born in South Carolina. On the 1850 Cass County, Georgia, Census, living next to MARTHA and MARCUS was Isaac Baker and his wife Patsy who were both born in South Carolina. Since MARTHA and MARCUS named their first son Isaac, it is believed he was her Father.

        MARCUS is undoubtedly descended from the immigrant Leonard Dozier.  It should be noted that Marcus L. Dozier is not the same person as Marcus Tullus Ciczro Dozier son of John Dozier and Lucretia Dorsett. Both Marcus' were listed separately on the 1850 Georgia Census.
