Willa Henrietta Dotson

Evidence from genealogical and church records proves that the Dotson family came to Utah in 1865. A child was born in Mississippi in December 1864, and a church ordinance was performed for the parents in Salt Lake City 11 Aug. 1866, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.FamilySearch lists her name as "Henrietta Willa," but her gravestone shows her name as "Willa Henrietta."Her birth date is confirmed by her gravestone and the 1900 Utah Census.
