Dorsett Family Genealogy Forum
Information for those trying to unravel the mystery of the Adcock to Dorsett name change:
Recent DNA tests on a 6th generation descendant of James (Adcock) Dorsett, a 6th generation descendant of Travis (Adcock) Emry and a 7th generation descendant of John Dorsett (son of Francis) reveal the following results: There is absolutely no relationship between or among these individuals. (This assumes of course that paternity is as reflected on the pedigrees submitted).
In other words, we now believe that the descendants of James (Adcock) Dorsett have no Dorsett blood and no James Adcock (father of Travis Emry) blood. So we are at Ground Zero and I would welcome any ideas about where to begin a new search for the Chatham County, NC Adcock/Dorsett identity. Elaine Goergen Dorsett
