ihave researched this Joseph Smith Dorsett b SC, lived for many years in Campbell County, GA 1850 thru 1870 He lived in Campbell County, GAHis 1st wife died ca 1848 and 1852 he married Nancy Jane Silvey. Ancestry.com gives him as b in Laurens SC in 1811 and his wife as Jane McCorkle. b in SC 1814 d 1848.
Joseph had a dau Martha Safronia Parker Campbell who is buried at Union Christian Church Cemetery in Fulton County, GA.I hae been trying to find someone that is related to the Dorsett family either in Fulton or Douglas County for abt 10yrs. now.Mr. Campbell gave the land to Union Christian Church for a cemetery before he died.
Paul Silvey wrote me 2005 and when I tried to write him this time hie email was returned.There is a Rev. War soldier in Our community of a Capt. Robert Smith and we think he is somehow related to Joseph Smith Dorsett.It is said that Capt. Robert married Jane Smith and she is Joseph mother.The grave needs to be moved and trying to find family members that will give permission as the land is not a cemetery and it is up for sale.
