(August 15, 1805-November 4, 1878)

Born in South Carolina and orphaned as a young child,
Daniel Dozier arrived in Alabama around 1817. As an adult,
he operated a large farm and grist mill and served as minister
for several area churches. He was a moderator and leader in
the Conecuh River Association for more than fifty years. He
married Elizabeth "Betsey" Taylor in 1824. The couple had
fifteen children. Daniel Dozier died in 1878 and is buried in
Good Hope Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Covington County. The
town of Dozier is named in his honor. Incorporated in 1907,
Dozier was known as "The Flowing Well City," because of the
many artesian wells located there, including one in the town
center. which provided water for residents and livestock.
Another artesian well filled the public swimming pool. In the
early twentieth century, the vibrant town of Dozier included a
train depot, hotel, post office, bank, several mercantile stores,
a feed mill, cotton gin, lumber mill, textile mill, telephone
exchange, doctor's office, and a school.
