The materials that follow contain information about the Dodge families. They are intended as a start on a comprehensive history of the Turner-Dodge House and the Turner and Dodge families, not as a final product at this time. The materials have been selected from various sources (identified in each item). They are presented essentially as originally written, with no attempt to verify facts or to correct errors. All are part of a computer file that can be searched and edited. The Friends Secretary, Ron Turner, is adding new materials to the file as they become available. Within the file, the materials currently are arranged without distinction as to subject matter or date.
Historical sources often have different spellings of the same name, or use a person's nickname. Some examples of these variations are Marian/Marion, Monroe/Munroe/Munro, and Abigail/Abby/Abbie.
