    • Mrs. Samuel Dotson passed away Saturday morning (January 26, 1918) at her home in Newport after an illness of a few days with pneumonia.

      Deceased, who was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Brady, was born in Louisa county thirty-five years ago. Her parents died when she was a little girl and she lived with Mr. and Mrs. Dan McKay near Wapello, who gave her the care of a mother and father until her marriage to Mr. Allen.

      They were the parents of three children, two surviving, a daughter having burned to death a few years ago. Two sons, Roy and Samuel, are surviving children of this union.

      On February 3, 1907, Mrs. Allen was married to Samuel Dotson, a prominent farmer of Newport. To them were born four children, Mary, Viola, Joe and Katherine, who survive with their father.

      Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family residence in Newport. Burial was made in Fairview cemetery.

    Research 
    • Sam Dotson's Louisa County, iowa biography stated he and Nellie Brady were married February 3, 1900, but this date is apparently incorrect, as Nellie's marriage to John Allen was in 1902 and her marriage to Sam was apparently was after the death of John Allen (which was sometime between 1908 and 1910). The 1910 federal census stated Samuel and Nellie had been married for one year. That seems a possibility. Nellie's obituary, however, stated she married Sam February 3, 1907. As Iowa marriage records became available online, another date, that of February 3, 1909, has surfaced.
