Reuben W. Dollar

Mary Susan Dollar

November 16, 1915

I first find Reuben Dollar on the 1880 Lauderdale Co, MS, living in the Daleville area of Beat 3.  The head of household is a widow, Louisa Dollar, aged 49 years old and born in Tennessee.  Four children are enumerated with her in the household, all born in Mississippi:  Reuben, John, Margaret and Cornelius.  They each indicate that their father was born in Georgia.

Further information on this Dollar family comes from Pam Parrish., a descendant of Louisa Dollar's daughter Mary Ellen Dollar Sessions. Pam writes, "Mary Ellen was the daughter of Louisa and Cornelius Dollar.  Cornelius Dollar died during the Civil War.  He is buried at Durant, Mississippi in a cemetery at the old Castilian Springs Hotel site.  The hotel was used as a hospital during the Civil War.  Cornelius died of dysentery.  He was a private in Company I, 20th Mississippi Infantry.  Louisa filed for his pay in 1863.  Elizabeth Dollar, mother of Cornelius, witnessed the paper when Louisa filed.

Cornelius Dollar was the son of Reuben and Elizabeth Dollar.  Reuben Dollar and his daughter, Mary, died of typhoid fever in 1859.  Elizabeth Dollar was still living in 1880.   Yes, this is the Reuben Dolar who was the son of the Revolutionary Soldier, Reuben Dollar.  Reuben was a brother to Ambrose who married the Clearman.

Cornelius and Louisa had three daughters.  Two of the daughters are my great-grandmothers.  Mary Ellen Dollar married Joseph Wesley Sessions of Newton County, MS.  Margaret L. Dollar married Nathan A. Mott of Lauderdale County.  The daughter of Margaret and Nathan Mott, Minnie Lee Mott, married Patrick Henry Sessions.  Patrick Henry was the son of Mary Ellen Dollar Sessions and Joseph Wesley Sessions.  Due to the death of Cornelius Dollar, his two daughters lived in different counties.  Their children did not know each other.  Minnie and Pat met and fell in love.  They were then told that they were first cousins.  Margaret Dollar Mott resisted their marriage until her death.  When she died my grandparents married.  Mary Ellen Dollar Sessions and her husband had moved to Scott County, MS.  Thus the distance kept the families apart."
