Harold Oscar Dodge family
This is a mystery Dodge line that goes back to Hezekiah Dodge b. 1731.
It is believed that this is a Tristram Dodge line, but the connection has not been found.

When my father Harold O. Dodge inherited Dodge Construction Company (founded in 1865 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts) he was a general contractorwho began to use air compressors and heavy equipment in underground utilitywork in western Massachusetts. My older brother Hascal O. Dodge took overthe company when our Dad passed on. He recently sold the company and itsname.
Many of the stone structures built by my great grandfather and great uncles stand today. The Bell Tower in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, builtby the Dodges, was made famous by artist Norman Rockwell.
