No death certificate or obituary has been found for Abraham. No marriage certificate has been found for Abraham Dodge and Yuda Lett.
Abraham's occupation has been listed as teamster, moulder, basketmaker and laborer. He has been found in the Cleveland City Directory up until about 1880. After that his wife "Uda" is shown as widowed.
During the years he was listed in the Cleveland city directory, Abel Dodge, Amos Dodge, John Dodge and Joseph Dodge were shown at the same addresses at various times. In one of the censuses an Amon Dodge was listed next door. Almost all of the Dodges listed in the city directory lived within a few blocks of each other at any given time and, although they moved often, most did not move out of the same general area of Cleveland, Ohio.
