I know this is an old posting but I just wondered if you ever found out anything about the Adcock-Dorsett names in N.C. I descend from Jesse Dorsett md. to Frances Canoy, through their son David Anderson, David Anderson to his son Benson Clyde, Benson Clyde to Clyde Oscar,(my grandfather),Clyde Oscar to my mother, Lelia Dorsett.Several years ago I corresponded with a Canoy researcher for Jesse's wife and she had something about an Adcock thatmay have been the husband of Frances' daughter Mary. Mary died leaving several small children and the Adcock father left ,leaving the minor children in the g.parents care. The grandparents left the Adcock name to each of Mary's children and just added the Dorsett name to the end.
