I am looking for information about John W. DORSETT Born abt<1827 in NC> his birth place is according to all the census I have found. <Military 1856-1861>. According to 1870 US census First child (William aka Willis) born in Texas, think Ft. Bilss, El Paso,about 1858. Next child (James) 1870 census says born about 1860 in New Mexico the rest of the children born in NM also they were Mary, Henry, Hezekiah Lee, Charles, and Alice Elizabeth. Family traditions says that he died when Alice was 3 monts old. His wife's name was Mary Ann Skinner, I have found a Fitzmore hooked to her name as well. If John died when Alice was 3 months old that would have been about 1875. Mary Ann married again to a man named Luis Hommel/Hummel they had their 1st child, Axtell about 1880 in NM. Does any one have any information on this John W. Dorsett????
