Notes for William B. Dorris Sr.:

 1758 Middlesex, NJ 1772 Loudoun, VA 1774 Sussex, NJ 1789 Orange Co, NC     Migrated from Northern Ireland to New Jersey sometime after 1750. Could have been the ship Funchal.     Probaby a bond servant of John Stevens     Probably a member of the Cranbury Presbyterian Church, Middlesex County, NJ     There is no known documentated proof that William Dorris had two wives.     The following taken from the internet, and probably contains some error.     The Dorris Family In tracing the orgin of the Dorris family, we find that the name "Dorris" is a Greek name. It was first spelled Doris, and we have been able to trace it back to the Greek city of doris. In this city the first Doris column was built, and was built by one of the Doris family. It was first called the Doris column, and afterward changed to the Doric column. We also find that hellenus gave the name of Hellenes to the Greeks and that he had three sons. The second son was Dorus. The country that Dorus inherited was named by him "Doris" and from this country came the family named "Dorris". (Hellins Anciient History). A General in the Roman Army under Julius Caesar fought a Greek general by the name of General Josef Dorris. After the conquest of Great Britain he was awarded by Caesar the County Downs, Ireland, for meritorious service rendered. This was about the year 54 or 55 B.C. (Caesar's Commentaries). Josef Dorris, was a lineal descendant of General Josef Dorris, and a native of the County Downs, Ireland. Seven of his sons imigrated to America in the early part of 1700. William Dorris born about 1715 died about 1795 of County Downs was the son of Josef Dorris. William Dorris married Mary Williams and they had the following children: Robert, William, Samuel, Isaac, John, James, Joseph, Benjamin, Mary, Martha, and Nancy.

Samuel married Martha Hues and had the following children: Isaac, Elizabeth, Peggy, Sally, Rachel, Joseph, William, and Samuel. Several of his sons were with General Frances Marion, who led the North Carolina forces in the Revolution. William and Isaac married sisters by the name of Frost of Frostburg Maryland. The first coal mines that were discovered in America was on the body of land owned owned by the Frost family in Maryland. William, Isaac and their half-brother, John Irvin Dorris, came into Tennessee in 1792 prospecting and while on the trip met up with Peter Demombeum, together with him they came on his keelboat down the Holston River to the Cumberland river and down this river to French Lick Station, what is now called Nashville, when there were few cabins and a block house. Old Captain Demombeun, a french trader came to trade with the Indians, he had his keelboat loaded with arms and ammunition to defend himself and his crew. There were no white men when he first came and the Indians came on him near the village of French Lick. He made signs of peace to them but they attacked with bows and arrows. His boat was fixed for defense and when he gave them a volley from his firearms, they fled. William, Isaac and John went to Fort Hamilton, now known as Tyree Springs in Sumner County, Tennessee. After locating at Fort Hamilton, William, Isaac, and John went back for their families, returning by wagon to Fort Hamilton, where they secured land and settled. The rest of Samuel's children moved to Tennessee in 1798 and settled in Robertson, Davidson, and Sumner Counties and settled in three settlements, and their farms joined so that they could visit each other as often as they wished, and especially when there was preaching. Samuel and his kindred and friends built the first Baptist meeting house in Robertson County on Sulphur Creek, four miles above Springfield, Tennessee.

Notes for Robert Dorris:

 According to the 1790 Census was in Orange Co., NC at the time as head of household. He remained in Orange Co., Nc as late as 1801.     Robert Dorris the Elder probably settled on the southern end of this triangle on the west prong of Caney Fork.  He appears to have had a number of Kentucky land grants, totaling 255 acres.  With the addition of the 40 acres he purchased from Gwin, he may have held over 300 acres on the Caney fork.  He probably resided no more than a few years in the area from 1817 or so to 1820 and only appeared on the 1820 census for the county and the 1820 tax list for Captain Jeremiah Tarver's company.  According to the 1820 tax roll his land was situated "on the ridge" south of Caney Fork near the lands of John Reddick and Claburn Morris.     Robert began selling off his land almost as soon as he arrived in the Caney fork area. He sold his brother John Dorris the elder 120 acres on the Caney fork in 1818.  Robert and his son Levi Dorris sold 50 acres to William Barr in 1821 and 65 acres to John West in 1825.  The land description in the second sale noted that the plot began at a "spring where Robert Dorris had formerly lived". Sumner County Deeds record that Robert sold 170 acres more to his brother William in 1833. Robert then moved north with his family to Hopkins County, Kentuckt where he appeared on the county tax riolls in 1835.     "Dorris-Net" Sep 30, 1997     In the mighty tide of immigration which continued to sweep westward among the early comers to what is now the Providence locality were John and Robert Doris, and William and Eleazar Given from near the Fort Nashboro settlement in Tennessee, and William Jenkins from Virginia. Turning west about 38 miles south of Red Banks (Henderson) as they came up the northwestward extension of the Old Natchez Trail, known to us as U. S. 41, they selected the rich plateau land nearby and homesteaded it. William Given's land was next to the old trail. Eleazar went west and south. The Dorris land lay to the north.     From the Centennial Supplement of THE PROVIDENCE ENTERPRISE: Published Every Thursday: Volume XXXVIII, Providence, Kentucky, Thursday, July 18, 1940, Number 38     1790 Orange Co., NC 1796 Sumner Co., TN 1840 Hopkins Co., KY     Arrived at Shackle Island, Sumner County, TN in fall of 1801     Robert Dorris lived in Davidson Co., TN until 1829 or 1830 when he moved north to Hopkins County, KY     Described as a robust, gaint of a man and a wrestler.     From Hopkins County 1850 Census 8-8 Dorris Stephen C.  51 1799 Miller 300 NC Matilda  40 1810     TN Robert 83 1767 Farmer    NJ Eleanor  79 1771     NJ
