I see now that you already knew that Fesenmayer was his motherís maiden surname!

It seems I spent several hours yesterday looking for information you were given a year ago.

but you were looking form something I wasn't asking about because I knew that information!

We've all done it Jen, with this OP :(

Aghadowey summed up the situation back in November.

Personally, I think it is best to ignore any thread with the words "John" and "Dorrington" in close proximity :)

You asked if Dorrington was his real name and if Fesenmayer was an alias.

I replied that Fesenmayer was his motherís maiden surname, which seemed to me to be a reasonable point to make.

How on earth was I expected to know you already had that information when you hadnít bothered to mention it at the start? It was only when I decided to do a search on RC for that surname that I found your other thread.

You asked for 1871 information about Mary Dorrington, which I gave you, and also about John Fesenmayer in 1871 which I gave you (he was clearly John Dorrington in 1871), none of which you have bothered to acknowledge.

So good luck with your further research into John Dorrington, but I wonít be joining in.
