I've spent some time reading your messages about the Dossett line from Dorsetshire to Campbell Co., TN.I'm trying to find a Dossett upline that starts in Hardin Co., IL and has the earmarks of fitting in with your line.
My solid information begins with a William Ille (That's an I with two L's) Dossett who married Dosha Ann Palmer.William was born 1840 in Cave-In-Rock Township, Hardin Co., IL.A family story has it that his parents were James Dossett b. 1821/22 and a Nancy Stevens.The three children reported from this union are William, above, and a Mary and Drucilla.Now one doesn't find Drucilla Dossetts behind every rock and bush so it seems logical that James was descended from Drucilla Forrester.The problem is discovering the link.
It would appear that James, provided he ever existed, would be a grandson of the William who married Drucilla Forester.The sons so far reported that I'm aware of are Robert, Edmund and Phillip.With Edmund's family fairly well accounted for, it follows that if there is a link it would likely be through either William or Phillip.
Highly speculative at this point, but that's all I have to go on.
Do you have any thoughts on this or can anyone else shed some light on my dilemna?
