Yes, I would be very interested in your Dorsey familly information prior to Washington Dorsey. After looking at your information in comparison to mine, I realized that I had left out a generation. I'm descended from Cecilia Elizabeth Dorsey, daugher of Washington and Camilla Seabrook Dorsey. Cecilia Elizabeth married Thomas Moses Lynch. Their daughter Margaret Camilla Lynch married Thomas Clingman Joyner. Their daughter Cecilia Dorsey Joyner, my grandmother, married Benjamin Thorpe Green. Their only son Benjamin Thorpe Green, Jr., was my father. It's really interesting to see how names run in families. My father's sisters were named Camilla Seabrook, Margaret Elizabeth, and Lavinia Anne. The sisters' children are named Margaret Camilla, Cecilia Dorsey, and Anne.

As for the spelling of the name, Terrell, I'm not sure. That's the way it's spelled in our family records. The older information comes from the back of copies of Seabrook family portraints that hung in my grandmother's house. Incidentally, I have Washington Dorsey's diploma from the University of Maryland. My cousin Cecilia has an old copy of the family coat of arms.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Peggy (Margaret Thorpe Green Mauldin)
