      Miscellaneous information: Reported by Stacey Curtis in 2014. Single large fieldstone marker inscribed "Dorsett Nora Mae" discovered when very large tree uprooted near old farmhouse. Believed to be daughter of William O. and Eva Dorsett. Ancestry records show birth record for Nora Mae Dorsett born 28 Feb 1941 to William Oran Dorsett. William Dorsett was living with his parents Archie and Gertrude, and wife Eva in the 1940 Census. His WWII draft registration record and at least one deed also indicate that his wife is Eva. Deeds put the Dorsett family in the area, but do not tie the family to this parcel. No death record for Nora Mae Dorsett has been found. The marker is unusually close to the farmhouse (within a few feet) and is not anchored in the soil as it was disturbed when the tree it was next to was uprooted.

      Last canvassed by: Reported by Stacey Curtis, in August 2014. Visited by Jim and Bev Wiggins on 7 Feb 2015.

  1. Dorsett, Nora Mae   (b. 28 Feb 1941 - d. Unknown)
