Doss Carlson in Grayson County

I am desperately trying to find a place that was once called "Doss Carlson" (spelling ?) in Kentucky sometime before 1882. My grandfather, Samuel Hardin Haynes, who died in 1969, claimed in 1947 when trying to get a "delayed" birth certificate that he was born on 25 Feb 1882 in a place that he called Doss Carlson in Grayson County, Kentucky. His sister also certified at the time that this information was correct. He was the son of William Hardin Haynes and Sarah Frances Hall who lived for several years from 1856 to 1879 in Ohio County, KY and in 1880 in Grayson County, KY. Sometime after 1880, they moved to Henderson County, KY where they were recorded in the 1900 U. S. Federal Census. .

I have been unable to find any reference to that community anywhere. I want to determine its approximate location as well as possibly learn something about its history. Can anyone help me? Any information, no matter how small, would be helpful.
