I too have been unable to reach Linda Harris lately but maybe I can help you. Your Dorsetts are connected to my Emersons. Francis Marion Dorsett was the son of Elijah Dorsett, born Circa 1806 in Pendleton District, S.C. and died circa 1867 in Chatooga Co., GA. He married (second wife) Mary Ann Emerson in Chatooga Co. on January 26, 1852. They had five children: Francis Marion, George Washington, Perry Pye, James Henry and Calvin Cordle. After the death of Elijah, Mary Ann moved to Shelby co., TX. Her brother's son, Francis Marion Emerson lived there. Her uncle, Rev. John L. "Big John" Emerson lived in Nacogdoches Co. John's wife was Sarah Ann "Sally" Nations. They married in Columbia Co., AR. Francis Marion Dorsett married Martha "Mattie" Nations in Columbia Co., AR on January 16, 1876. There were a lot of Emerson and Nation relatives in Columbia Co. If you think this is your family and want more information, you may contact me at
