Comments:

Doseido Colony was a small historic settlement which was located in western Wilson County, Texas (USA) one mile north of FM 775, at the intersection of county roads 321 and 361.

Remains:

The community of Doseido Colony was a small, primarily African American, settlement in Northwestern Wilson County, Texas, one of Eight “colonies” established after the end of the American Civil War. In 1875, the community had a school and church both built out of hand-split logs, and filled with furniture handmade from logs. H. C. Abrams was the school teacher and he was paid $50 a month. With the growth of nearby La Vernia, Adkins, and Lone Oak, and after being bypassed by the railroad and major highways the community declined.
