Parents ofThomas Dorsett/Rachel Strange

Maybe you can help me. I've just recently started to update our family tree. My uncle gave my mother a copy of the one he had completed back in 1997. Now that I'm working on it, I've found some conflicting results.

I have no problems back to Thomas Dorsett b. 1814 in S.C who married Rachel Strange b. 1815 S.C. I found records of this in Chattooga, Ga. But my uncle has Elijah Dorsett b. 1794 S.C. and
Eveline Northcutt b. 1796 S.C. as his parents. I have looked this up & found no Thomas in Elijah's children. I also found that his daughter is the Eveline Northcut. I can trace the Strange family line. But I'm not sure who the father of Thomas is. He & Rachel are in the same 1850 census, and under marriages, they're on the same page with Elijah marrying Mary Ann Emerson 26 Jan 1852
& John marrying Harriett Harlow 12 April 1840 as well as Elijah L who married Laola Canon 30 Dec 1851.

Any clue who the parents of Thomas Dorsett could be? Any help would be appreciated.
