Estella "Stella" Doze

from Vicki Bever Doze

Hello everyone!
I'm attaching a picture of Estella "Stella" Doze, the daughter of John Claude and Mary Stanley Doze to go along with the information below that Judy Hall sent to me. I thought you would like a picture to go along with the stats!

Her father John Claude Doze was the eldest son of Victor and Mary Bailey Doze. He was married twice- first to Mary E. Osborne ca 1862 in Sullivan Co., MO. Stella is a child from his second marriage to Mary Elizabeth Stanley 15 May 1871 in Sullivan Co., MO.

John Claude Doze was born 22 Mar 1837 in Darke Co., OH. He died 16 June 1921 in Norwich, Kingman Co., KS and is buried in Upchurch Cemetery in Norwich.

Mary Elizabeth Stanley Doze was born 5 Oct 1854 in Kokomo, Howard Co.,IN. She died 25 Mar 1928 in Pomono, Riverside Co., CA and is buried in Upchurch Cemetery, Norwich, Kingman, KS. She was the daughter of John Stanley and Nancy Nunn.

John and Mary Elizabeth Stanley Doze had four children:

Jemimah Doze born 26 Apr 1877 and died 30 Apr 1877.

Martin Francis Doze born 20 Feb 1879 in Loury City, St. Clair Co., MO. He died 2
Aug 1965 in Kingman, Kingman Co., KS and is buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery in Kingman.
He married Mary Martha Widman 23 Dec 1906 in Norwich, Kingman Co., KS

Estella (her information is below)

Infant daughter born 1 Oct 1891 and died 7 Oct 1891.

My information comes from descendants of John Claude Doze: Ella Doze Randle now deceased; Betty Mansell Arnold; Tombstone inscriptions, death records of Sullivan Co., MO; Census 1870 of Sullivan Co., MO; A Biographical History of Central Kansas v. 1, 1902; newspaper clippings on Martin Doze and John C. Doze.

I know and knew many of the descendants of Martin Doze.

John Claude Doze's first marriage to Mary E. Osborne:
Mary was born 13 Dec 1836 possibly in Tazewell Co., IL or in KY
She died 12 July 1870 in Sullivan Co., MO - a few months after giving birth to her youngest child

They had four children:

Phoebe "Ella" Ellen Doze born Apr 1864 in Sullivan Co. MO and died in 29 Jan 1936 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Lineville, Wayne Co., IA. She married 9 Apr 1885 to Elijah "Lidge" Dailey.

William Douglas Doze born 12 Feb 1865 in Sullivan Co., MO. He married Lora Arlene Culver 8 Feb 1885.

Henrietta "Retta" born 1867or 1869 (she was aged 11 in 1880 census) in Butler, St. Clair Co., MO (poss. Sullivan Co., MO) and died 27 Jan 1862 in Norwich, Kingman Co., KS. She married James Skillen.

George W. Doze born 17 Feb 1870 in Sullivan Co., MO. and died 3 May 1946. He married Marie Katherine Schreiner 15 July 1901 in Norwich, Kingman Co., KS. George W. Doze was located in the household of his grandparents, Victor and Mary Bailey Doze in 1870 in Sullivan Co., KS. He was also listed during the same census in the home of his Aunt and Uncle Phoebe Doze and Joseph Custer. His mother had died when he was almost 5 months old (12 July 1870--I imagine several relatives were helping out widower John Claude Doze take care of his infant son.)

I have a lot of info on all these families, but it will take time to send. I wish I could just copy and paste the info in my genealogy program, but the program won't let me do it. I will send a picture of John Claude Doze in another email.

Enjoy and please--if anyone can add or correct info to this, please send to me! Thanks.

Stella Doze (Norris) was my Great-Great-Grandmother, her daughter Juanita my Great-Grandmother, and Juanita's daughter Betty was my grandmother on my father's side. She died when I was about 9, and I remember attending her funeral as well as her coming to family gatherings at my grandparents before she passed away.
