Welcome to the Dodge genealogy. Family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and down each lineage. To follow a line back in time (ancestors), click on the underlined portion of "(son of ...)" or "(dau. of ...)" beneath the name of the person you want to trace back. To follow a line forward in time (descendants), click on the name of the person whose offspring you want to see. A plus sign (+) following a name means that that person had one or more children, but that family group has not been added to this web page. A link to documentation and notes, when available, is given below each family.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to museum@mdihistory.org or mailed to "Mount Desert Island Genealogy; Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, ME 04660". And, of course, please report all errors.

The earliest Dodge household on Mount Desert Island was that of Ezra H. Dodge, recorded in the 1790 census of Mount Desert, which included what are now the towns of Bar Harbor, Cranberry Isles, Southwest Harbor, and Tremont, as well as Mount Desert. The household was composed of 1 male, aged "16 and upwards" and 2 females. In 1800, there was a family of Ezra Dodge, presumably Ezra H., in Mount Desert, with 1 male under 10 and 1 male 16–26, and 4 females under 10, 1 female 10–16, and 1 female 26–45. In 1810 and 1820, there was still a single family of an Ezra Dodge, in Mount Desert. In 1830, there were families of 5 Dodges, all in Mount Desert: Ezra, Ezra H., Gideon, John S., and Reuben. In 1840, there were Mount Desert families of Ezra, Ezra Jr., Gideon, and John S.
