You were right! The son of James and Elizabeth Dorsett did marry Cornelia A. McCarley, in Tippah Co MS.

Thanks for the lead. Someone researching this line can use the data.


John and Cornelia were in Madison Co ILL in 1870. Seems she named a daughter for her Mother and another for her sister? Just a guess...
I am adding census for both sides, in case anyone needs them.
