Dorey/Dory NY, MI, KS

Forgot to add. My William Dory/Dorey born in Granger, (Alleghany Co.) NY but stated he was raised in Livingston Co., NY. Others listed in the 1850 census in Granger were William (67) and Elizabeth (72). There is a Deborah (30) and Timothy (5) living in their household. There is also a Rachel Dorey with children Albert & Orinda living with the John Bennett family.
Robert Dorey & wife Sarah with children Issac, Parmalice, William (But not the right age for my William), Thomas, Jane, Huldah Ann?, and David.
Daniel Dory with wife Elizabeth and children Lucinda, Mary E., Phoebe Ann and Eliza Jane.

I suppose it may also be possible that the census takers got the ages mixed up and this William in household of Robert may be mine. Because he is not in the household in the 1855 census. That really makes more sense in the long run anyway. My William and his wife only had the one child and the seven that William Jr. had scattered to the winds before I had a chance to grow up and ask questions. Mostly they headed west, AZ, CA, OR and WA.
Do any of these names sound familiar to anyone?
