How did Titanic survivor Dr. Washington Dodge die? Was it murder, or suicide? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Dr. Washington Dodge, the former city tax assessor, died in July 1919 from a head wound. He purportedly committed suicide. However, it has also been suggested that he was involved in some shady business dealings, and was murdered. Does anyone have any views on this?

My stupid comment is that he was shot

I have been doing some research on this Dodge family, I found out that they're were Dodge's on the Titanic in about 1984/5. I am wanting to know more about them. Jr's grandson in Long Island is a snottey snob. I want to write abook on this family, yet he will tell me not a thing one!!!These Dodge's descend from the immigrant ancester, Sgt. Tristram Dodge,I. He came from Northern England to Ferryland, New Foundland in 1646/7. He was a fisherman by trade. He was so well known that in 1661 he along with a few other settlers went to Block Island,RI. He taught the "art of fishing" to them to survive. Tristram also died there. This is also my immigrant Dodge anscester (TWICE) the Dr. & I both go through his son John,sr. I would love to write a book on this man, his lineage, his descendents.
