(North Carolina) 1.Phillip Dossett born: died: 1783 or 1784, Orange County, North Carolina married: wife: Selah _____ born: died: children: . William Dossett born:1750 Susannah Dossett born: Jeney(Seney) Dossett) born:
A Susanah Dossett married John Vaughn, September 22, 1812, in Orange County, North Carolina.
In August 1766, Benjamin Forrist [Forrester?] was granted letters of administration for an estate;one of his bondsmen was Phillip Dosset, Sr.
Philip Dossett died soon after executing a Will on December 7, 1783.His Will was proved (probated)in February 1784, Book A, pg. 298, WILL RECORDS OF ORANGE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA.
Philip was married at least once, to Seelah (could this be Cecilia?) and had at least three children, daughters Jeney (handwritting looks like Seney) and Susannah Dosset, and son William Dossett.He appointed his friends, Benjamin and Stephen Forrest (Forrester?) executors of his estate.
In his Will, Philip gave his wife a life estate in the land he owned;after her death, the Will provided that the land would pass to his son, William.We can assume that Seelah died before February, 1800, because on February 10, 1800, William Dossett, Sr. (which suggests there was a William Dossett, Jr.) used the 135 acre tract acquired by his father in 1762 as collateral for a loan, and on January 23, 1801, William Dossett Sr., sold 135 acres “being the same more or less which tract of land was granted by John Earl Granville to Phillip Dosett, the father of said William, by deed dated the fifteenth day of December, Anno Domini 1762, and bequeathed by the last Will of the said Philip to his son, the aforesaid William Dossett . . .,” Book 8, pgs. 324-326, andBook 9, pgs. 154-155, DEED RECORDS OF ORANGE COUNTY.
Although a definite link remains to be established, it may be that Philip’s son William was the William Dossett who married Drucilla Forrester, daughter of Benjamin Forrester, this seems to be the logical conclusion.
In 1765, Philip was referred to as Philip Sr. in a lawsuit filed against him.This suggests that there was a Philip Dossett, Jr.Although no link has been established, on September 10, 1792, a Philip Dossett purchased 175 acres in the District of Cheraw, South Carolina, on the Southwest side of the Pecolet River.
