"Absalom G Dorrough born 1825,son of Joesph T Dorrough and Betsy Bazemore, married Emaline Dobbs 17 Febuary 1848 in Harris County Georiga."
According to my late grandmother, she is descended from James Dorrough and Bettie Dobbs.
Does anybody know if AG Dorrough had a brother named James.And does anyone know if Emaline Dobbs might have had a sister named Bettie?"My" James & Betty Dorrough had a son, James Washington Dorrough, in 1857.
My family comes from Georgia, and some were originally out of Harris County (Allen & May/Maye) -- not too far from Columbus.So it is not a stretch of the imagination to believe some of the Harris Dorroughs are my ancestors.
So far, this is the outline of what I've been able to cobble together.
1.James Dorrough = Betty Dobbs issue: James Washington Dorrough (25 Jan 1857 - 25 Sep 1930, Columbus, Ga.)
2.James W. Dorrough = Lucendia Goodwin married: 18 Dec 1873; Opelika, Al issue: Raleigh Clemmons Dorrough; (b. 3 Feb 1889; d. 29 Jun 1930)
3.Raleigh C. Dorrough = Erma Lucile Allen married:30 Jan 1910 (Columbus?) issue: Charles Dorrough (d. 1968, Columbus) issue: Carolyn Margrete Dorrough (b. 3 Jan 1913 in Columbus; d. Sep 1989 in Alabaster, Al. issue: Raleigh C. Dorrough (2)
4.Raleigh C. Dorrough II = Huron issue: Raleigh C. Dorrough III (b. Oct 1951, Columbus)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
