Uncle Kit Dodd.

Mr. Christopher Dodd, or “Uncle Kit” as he is more familiarly known, has been in the city a few days of the past week, having some business at court. There are some peculiarities in his life history that make him one of the most remarkable of our citizens. Uncle Kit lives in the old Seventeenth district near where his father lived where he moved to this state from South Carolina long, long years ago. He was married to a daughter of Mr. David Lowery in June 1839. Unto them have been born eleven children, two of which died in infancy. Their second son, D. W. Dodd was killed in the battle near Atlanta, in 1864. In this same battle Capt. Tom Dodd, another son, lost his left arm. He is now a leading attorney in Western Texas. As a result of the union of Mr. and Mrs. Dodd there has been a total of sixty eight grand children, forty eight of whom are now living, and five great grandchildren. Uncle Kit himself was in service in removing the Indians from this country. He is now seventy four years of age, but looks robust and healthy and maintains a most cheerful spirit.
