John and Elizabeth might be the couple the parents of ocian_c's cousin. Elizabeth is white.

Looking at the photographs of the children in reply 9, they could very well be mixed race.

someone has done the Dorsey family on ancestry.com. It would be well worth your while to sign up for a few months.

Tree for Clem Dorsey
https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/person/tree/83510687/person/332157497753/facts

The owner is a Dorsey who is way into genealogy, from what I can tell. Signed in today, and likely to be helpful.

It would take me weeks to copy all of it over to here for you.

PS  - someone told me if your library has a subscription for library use only, then you can access ancestry.com from home until Apr 1930, coronavirus situation. Might be US only, I don't know.

THIS TREE IS INTERESTING BUT I THINK HE HAS MUDDLED UP TWO DORSEY FAMILIES!

You are welcome. I have enjoyed working on this family very much.

I think so too. He has 2 fathers for Clem Dorsey, if I remember right. But the links to the documents might save you some time looking for the right line. I didn't have time to comb through it.

Hi ocian_c    - It was nice to see you return to the thread.  I came across your ancestry tree yesterday and saw you had added the information so that should help it fill out now.  Not the easiest of families to try and piece together.
Hopefully we can have another go.
