Not related to the Dodsons, but we are in Lubbock and did some research for you, and came up with a lot of information...so here goes.
We found the obit for Worth Dodson (Lubbock A-J, Monday June 13, 1977). Here is the info.
Services for Worth E. Dodson, 62, of 1519 37th St., are pending with Sanders Funeral Home.
Dodson died about 7:20 p.m., Saturday in Methodist Hospital.
A native of Eudora, Ark., Dodson moved to Lubbock in 1939. He was in the landscaping business.
He is survived by his wife, Dollie; a son, John L. of Lubbock; two daughters, Mrs. Bill McNeice of Lubbock and Mrs. James Morris of Morgan City, La.; a brother, Ray of Lubbock; five sisters, Mrs. Dorothy Mosley of Greenwood, Miss., Mrs. Carl Morris of Monroe, La., Mrs. Julia Elizabeth Laws and Mrs. Leona Knight, both of Little Rock, Ark., and Mrs. Joyce Edwards of Eudora, Ark.; and eight grandchildren.
This does not list the location of the burial. Sanders Funeral Home is still in business (1420 Main, Lubbock, TX, 79401, (806)763-6433)...maybe they can help you with the location. Also, there is a Wm. McNeice listed in the telephone directory. I don't feel comfortable listing a personal residence's # here...but, you can do a search at www.anywho.com and you will find the information there.
We also searched the Lubbock Directories from 1978 - 1994(could have gone back further than 1978...but, library was closing). We found a few Dodson names that were employed at Dodson Landscaping. Here's what we found (note the 1981, 1982, 1990 & 1991 directories were missing):
Dollie Mrs.; h1519 37th (1979-1980)
Hilda; Dodson's Landscaping (1994); h4107 31st (1994)<Ray must have passed between 1993 & 1994>
Jason; emp Furr's Supermarket(1992); r4814 39th (1992)

Ronald S.; emp Dodson Tree Surgery (Carlisle); h4814 39th (1979)
Ronald S. & Sadie C; emp Dodson Tree Surgery (Carlisle)(1980, 1983-1987), Dodson's Landscaping (1988-1989, 1992-1994); h4814 39th (1980, 1983-1989, 1992-1994)(Sadie is also listed as emp AT&T (1984-1989))
Worth E & Dollie; (Dodson's Landscaping Co); h1519 37th (1978)
I hope that the format I put this information in isn't too confusing. If you have any questions about this info, feel free to reply.
Something more to note...Dodson's Landscaping and Tree Surgery is still in business (1535 Alcove Rd, Lubbock, TX, 79416, (806)792-2941). Since this is where Worth and his brother Ray worked (owned?)...they may have some information regarding your family...worth a shot.
Also in the current directory, there is a H.P. Dodson living at the same address that Ray & Hilda lived. Again, you can find the contact info at www.anywho.com.
Well, that's it. I sure hope that this information helps you. Best of luck to you with your research.
