I am curious about your first name as Dods is a family name and I do not see it much.
Andrew Dods was a tacksman at Priesthill in the early 1800's. His daughter Ann married John Munro (Milnton, Barbaraville and Saltburn) and there has been an Ann Dods Munro in each generation after.
Just wondering if there may be a connection.

Dod is probably used as a Scottish alternative for George, as in: George Wilson "Doddie" Weir OBE is a Scottish former rugby union player who played as a lock.
