A-CHS 11/01 issue: The early names in the Dodge family are hard to document. Our files start this line in England with Oliver (1500) > Isiah (1574) . John > Tristan (1607-1683) > (then to Rhode Island) Tristan (1647-1733) > Nathaniel (1682 - 1763) > Mark (1717 -) > Simon (1741 - 1822) > (then to Islesboro, Maine) Joshua Dodge (1782 - 1858). This Joshua may have been married to Berila Penaleton or to Betsy Wilkins, or to both. /P/ The 1850 census of Plantation 14 lists Joshua Dodge, age 46, and his wife Jane, age 39. Their children were; George 20, William 17, Alfred 15, Mary 12, Elisa 10, Joshua Jr. 6, Charles 2, and Sarah 1. /P/ This Joshua Dodge, born about 1804, was a son of Joshua of Islesboro. One source states that he died on December 27, 1882. He married Jane Shaw of Edmunds on December 25, 1828. Jane was born about 1811 and died on October 22, 1889 or October 10, 1872. /P/ George Warren was born on November 1, 1830 at Edmunds and died March 31, 1897 at Dennysville. He was a ship's carpenter. He married Mary Benner on 9/3/1851. She was born in 1831 at Pembroke. Known children of George W. and Mary were; Franklin (1853-4 - 1943), Clarence (1857), George A. (1858 - 1859), George (1861 - 1897), Hiram E. (1863 - 1944), and Lillian May (1865 - 1951). The 1860 Plantation 14 census lists George and Mary with John W. age 8, and Frank H. age 6. /P/ William was born in 1832 and died in 1903. He married about 1860 Eleanor Smith, daughter of Haskel Wood and Deborah (Harriman) Smith of Cooper. (They are in the 1860 and 1870 Plantation 14 census.) It is interesting to note that Deborah was the daughter of James and Deborah (Shaw) Harriman). Their children of whom we have records are Reliphenia (1861), James (1863 - 1941), and twins John Edgar and Joshua Everett. They were born on February 24, 1865. John Edgar married Elmira Henderson; Joshua Everett married Ella Henderson. /P/ Alfred appears on the 1860 census for Plantation 14. Alfred is 25 years old; his wife Betsey is 20, and their child Lizzie, 8 months. The 1870 census does not list Alfred and Betsey, but lists Lizzie, at age 10, living with Marcus and Eliza Peters and their children Frederic and Willena. Lizzie is attending school. /P/ We also find in Plantation 14 in 1860 Joshua 55, Jane 49, Elisa 19, Joshua Jr. 16, Charles 12, Sarah 10, Martha D. 14, James 7, and Raymond G. 4. Child 3, daughter Mary, has disappeared. /P/ Listed in 1870 in Joshua Dodge's family were Jane 59, Joshua Jr. 26, Charles 22, James 17, Raymoend G. 14, and Aldred 6. We also find 10-year old Lizzie, daughter living in #14, but not with her parents, Alfred and Betsey. /P/ In the 1880 census of Plantation 14, Joshua Jr. 36 and Lucy 35 Dodge have 4 children, Heman 8, Stillman 6, Gilbert 1 and Mary or Minnie 1. Living with the family was Joshua Jr.'s brother Charles 32. /P/ The 1861 Washington County Map and the 1881 Colby's Atlas of Washington Co. show that the Dodge Family lived on East Ridge in #14, on the road from Dennysville to Cooper, east of Cathance Lake. Later several members of this family moved north into Cooper (which was once Township 15) and resided along East Ridge road in that town.

Brian Pendleton and his descendants, 1599-1910: :Thomas5 Pendleton married at Block Island RI 21 October 1743 Dorcas Dodge (Block Is Rec) daughter of Nathaniel and Margaret (Pullin) Dodge (TR Woodward's Dodge Gen p 13). She was born there 11 February 1722. The History of Islesboro (p 249) says that Dorcas was daughter of Tristram Dodge probably an error as the Block Island records have no Dorcas daughter of a Tristram Dodge at this period, while Dorcas daughter of Nathaniel and Margaret Dodge had brothers Nathaniel Mark and Gideon and sister Mary. All these names occurring among Thomas Pendleton's children as well as that of Margaret is pretty good evidence as to his wife's parentage. The Block Island records show the marriage of Nathaniel Dodge and Margaret Pullin 3 March 1706 the Dodge Genealogy calls her Margaret Pulling while Arnold in his Vital Records of Rhode Island refers to her as Margaret Hulling.
Brian Pendleton & His Descentants: Stephen6 Pendleton married (1) at Islesboro Me 25 September 1786 Prudence Dodge daughter of Simon and Prudence ( Rose) Dodge. She was born at Block Island RI 23 May 1769 and died at Northport Me about 1820. Prudence Dodge was probably Stephen's first cousin as her father and his mother appear to have been brother and sister.....Bathsheba Dodge born at Block Island RI 13 May 1750, daughter of and Lydia (Rathbone) Dodge. Mark Dodge was brother to Dorcas Dodge, Samuel Pendleton's mother,  and besides Bathsheba had children Simon, Joshua, Dorcas, and Niobe. //P// Berilla7 Pendleton (Gideon, Thomas, James, Caleb) was born at Islesboro Me about 1779 and died at Mt Desert Me about 1874. She married 1 Joshua Dodge and 2 John Bracy. Nearly all her children lived and died at Mt Desert. They have many descendants.

Tristram Dodge and his Descendants in America: Our ancestor appeared in America first in 1660-1 as one of the original sixteen proprietors and settlers of Block Island in the faithful official record of honest old Nathaniel Mott town clerk copied in 1695. The ancient scribe though writing a strong legible hand shows by his records of the old deeds that few or none of the Islanders of that age could write their names and he expressed the several names by imitating their pronunciation and as with other settlers our ancestor's name in his record suffered a sea change by his pen into Thrustararorum Daudg and Thurstarorum Daudge Trustrome etc etc until long after those days in the next generation the influence of the school master appears and rescues the name to its true orthography. Of his origin We may be sure he was not born in either of the New England settlements as in all their careful records of births and other records his name does not appear. Town Clerk Mott's detailed account of the preliminary meetings of 1660 shows that the settlers had then engaged and advanced the money to buy the island as their home for life. These serious acts could only have been executed by men who had at least reached their majority or the age of twenty one years. He had been married sometime before though his wife's name is not given and in 1670 he had four sons with him as settlers who were then admitted freemen as appears Book 1 Evidences of Property of New Shoreham Rhode Island page 55 viz. At a Town meeting held the month of July for the year one thousand six hundred and seventy It was resolved that the freemen of the Town their names should be recorded for the Town Record thyrustarom Daudge, John Daudge, thrustarum Daudge, William Daudge, Israel Daudge. Thus recording in 1670 nine years after he sailed as freemen of the Town of New Shoreham or Block Island though only in 1672 the Town was chartered by Rhode Island first our ancestor and then his four sons viz John, Tristram, William, and Israel Dodge. He must have been married at least thirty years before for his four sons to have attained majority and been admitted freemen in 1670. The father then on his emigration in 1661 must have been at least about forty years old which would place his birth year about 1620. We have no record of the date of his death. His son and grandson bear the same name and the several names are frequent on the records the distinctions of Senior and Junior being usually omitted it is difficult to determine which one was intended. But at pages 90 3 Confessions of Nathaniel Briggs and Trustram Dodge Sen detailing verbatim allegations of the parties to a legal contest then settled by the warden's advice dated December 13 1681 and 31st August 1682 he was then living on the island perhaps at more than sixty years old.

A History of Brock Island: DODGE This name appears on the first records of the Island. Trustaram Dodge was one of the first settlers who came here in 1662. He was not one of the first purchasers of the Island like several others who came with him to occupy lands obtained of some of the sixteen proprietors. He died in 1733 his name was sometimes written Tristram and he was admitted freeman in 1664 among the first freemen of Block Island. John Dodge occupied the Minister's Land in 1691 according to the old records and was admitted freeman in 1709 was representative in the General Assembly in 1745 and 1751. Nathaniel Dodge was admitted freemen in 1709 at the same time as John's admission and perhaps they were brothers or cousins. David Dodge was admitted freeman in 1728 and Alexander Dodge in 1721. Samuel and William Jr were admitted in 1734 In 1744. Nathaniel Dodge was admitted and in 1745 another by the name of William. Hezekiah Dodge was on the Island in 1775 at the beginning of the Revolution and probably remained here through that distressing period.

Encyclopedia of VA Biography: Tristram Dodge described as "a fisherman formerly of New Foundland" was one of the fifteen heads of families who settled Block Island politically described as the town of New Shoreham in the state of Rhode Island. He sailed from Taunton Massachusetts with the others in April 1661 and received a grant of three acres of land southeast of the harbor on Block Island. It is apparent that his occupation was that of a fisherman after his arrival there as these small grants were made for the purpose of encouraging fisheries. He must have been a native of North England as it is found that his sons came from that region near the river Tweed in 1667 and settled on Block Island where they were made freemen July 2 1670. Tristram Dodge was made a freeman of the colony May 4 1664 and was a sergeant of the local militia in 1676. He was dead in 1720 at which time the records show his estate as intestate. William Dodge fourth son of Tristram Dodge was made a freeman in July 1670 in New Shoreham. He married Sarah daughter of Peter and Mary George. Their son Samuel Dodge born September 9 1691 settled about 1718 at Cow Neck in the town of Hempstead on Long Island. His will proved March 25 1761 names his wife Elizabeth and several sons and daughters. The second son Jeremiah Dodge was born in May 1716 and engaged in business in New York City. In 1745 a prayer meeting was held in his house which resulted in the organization of the First Baptist Church in New York City. In 1753 this body occupied a rigging loft on William street and purchased a lot on John street in 1760 on which a church was subsequently erected. Jeremiah Dodge married October 1737 Margaret Vanderbilt daughter of John and Margaret Vandcrbilt and descended from Aert Van Der Bilt who lived in Utrecht Holland Jan Aertson that is son of Aert Van Der. But came to America and was residing in New York as early as 1650. After 1663 he removed to Flatbush and about thirty years later to Bergen New Jersey where he died February 2 1705. 

History of Isleborough: Simon Dodge Sen was here early. His house was near The Gully east side below Hewes Point. He must have died after 1823 as his grandson Simon Dodge was then called third. His estate was divided between his sons Joshua and Noah now owned by Alvin Warren. He married first Prudence Rose. He married second Sarah Nash widow of Dodge Pendleton.

Mid-Atlantic Genealogies, 1340-1940 FTM CD#156: Our ancestor appeared in America first in 1660-1, as one of the original sixteen proprietors and settlers of Block Island, in the faithful official record of honest old Nathaniel Mott, town clerk, copied in 1695. The ancient scribe, though writing a strong legible hand, shows by his records of the old deeds that few or none of the Islanders of that age could write their names, and he expressed the several names by imitating their pronunciation; and as with other settlers, our ancestor's name in his record "suffered a sea-change" by his pen, into "Thrustararorum Daudg," ... He had been married sometime before: though his wife's name is not given, and in 1670, he had four sons with him as settlers, who were then admitted freemen: as appears [Book 1, Evidences of Property of New Shoreham (Rhode Island), page 55], viz.: "At a Town meeting held the month of July for the year one thousand six hundred and seventy: "It was resolved that the freemen of the Town their names should be recorded for the Town Record, "thyrustarom Daudge "John Daudge "thrustarum Daudge "William Daudge "Israel Daudge." ... Will of Tristram Dodge. Dated 26th day July, 1733. "First--Gives and devises to Dorcas my wife my house and all my land on Block Island for her life, and all my movable estate indoors and out; and after her decease, the House and Land to my son Nathaniell Dodge; and the movable estate to be equally divided between my two daughters Dorcas Landworth and Sarah Mitchell; and my Will is that my son Nathaniell Dodge (who is named Executor) shall pay to my son Thomas Dodge Ten pounds; and to my son Ebenezer, u10; and to my son Hezekiah, u10; and to my son Tristram Dodge, u10; and to my daughter Dorcas, u2; and to my daughter Sarah, u2." Revokes all prior wills (attestation clauses). Proved at New Shoreham, June 7, 1735.
