 Descendants of Nicolas DORR


1-Nicolas DORR [184243] was born about 1663 in Obervisse, France and died after
1750 in Obervisse, France.

The first Dorr that we have recorded information for is Nicolas Dorr who was born about
1650. He was a farmer in Obervisse, France. It's in the Lorraine region in northeastern
France and borders both Belgium and Germany. Nicolas married Catherine Decker in
Boucheporn in 1703. They had five children, the second being Jean Jacques, who is in our
lineage.

Nicolas married Catherine DECKER [184244] [MRIN: 397]. They had one son: Jean
Jacques.

     2-Jean Jacques DORR [184241] was born about 1711 in Obervisse, France and
     died on 11 Dec 1771 in Varsberg, France about age 60.

     Jean Jacques married Marguerite Paul from Varsberg, a town aproximately 5 miles
     northeast of Obervisse. Today Obervisse has a population of 120 while Varsberg has
     a population of approximately 2,500. He became a carver, innkeeper, and merchant.
     He evidently moved to Varsberg where the next three to four generations of Dorrs
     lived. They had six children, the first of whom, Jean Pierre, is in our lineage.

     Jean married Marguerite PAUL [184242] [MRIN: 396]. Marguerite was born on
     10 May 1710 in Varsberg (57, Moselle), France. They had one son: Jean Pierre.

          3-Jean Pierre DORR [759] died on 29 Sep 1811 in Saint-Avold (57,
          Moselle), France.

          Jean Pierre married twice, the second time to Catherine Elisabeth from
          Varsberg from whom we descend. During this time some of the Dorrs went
          into the cloth making field and evidently became well off. Jean Pierre's
          brother, Nicolas, became the mayor of Varsberg. Mathieu (Mathis) was the last
          of 12 children. Jacques, who has provided much of the information, descends
          from Mathieu's older brother Jean Pierre.

          Jean married Catherine VEBER [760] [MRIN: 264] in 1787. Catherine died
          on 10 Oct 1787 in Varsberg (57, Moselle), France. They had one son:
          Mathias.

               4-Mathias DORR [419] was born on 7 Jul 1782 in Varsberg (57,
               Moselle), France and died on 30 Aug 1814 in Morhange (57 Moselle),
               France at age 32.

               Mathias Dorr hid his origins in the town of Morhange (Moselle). The
               Municipal records list his occupation as cloth maker and apparently he
               was a wealthy man. It is not clear at this time how many children
               Mathias had. According to the municipal records he had three children,
               Victor, Rosine, and Louis, all by his first wife Marie-Marguerite. After
               she died he married a younger woman with children of her own. A
               French genealogy web site shows him with seven children by his first
               wife. When he died there was a dispute over his inheritance which
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
     continued until 1876. The settlement was delayed due to Napoleon's
     defeat. It ended up that most of the inheritance was lost to an
     unscrupulous lawyer.

     The following email gave us the first solid information about the Dorr
     family in France:

     Hello

     My name is Patrick NICOLAS, and I'm living in Nancy (Lorraine) and
     I'm fond of genealogy since many years. I found your site with google,
     because I'm interested by the Dorr family, since I've got some Dorr in my
     own tree.

     I went to the Municipal archives and I didn't found the birth of Louis
     Dorr on the year 1816.

     But I found a Louis Dorr, born on 9-12-1816, in MORHANGE, and he
     has got a brother Victor; born on 3-2-1808 in MORHANGE also and a
     sister Rosine, born on 3-9-1806, in MORHANGE too.

     His brother Victor was married with Elisabeth SCHOUMERT, and had a
     daughter, named Victorine, born on 7-17-1838.

     The father of Louis, Victor and Rosine and others, was named Mathias
     (instead of François) and was married with Marie-Marguerite CLOSSET
     on 8-31-1801 in MORHANGE.

     Louis's mother died in 1828 and his father got married again with
     Catherine HUMBERT, on 10-20-1830 in DIEUZE (Moselle).

     I noticed that on the passengers'list of the Hanover Ship, the line above
     the Louis'one is HUMBERT, like his stepmother. Maybe, This HUMBERT
     was a brother of his stepmother ?

     About Victor, he lived after in NANCY and he was à cloth maker. He was
     rich, apparently.

     Victor DORR and his wife, Elisabeth SCHOUMERT, are the ancestors of
     Ségolène ROYAL. Do you know her? She is an important political
     leader and was candidate to the recent presidential elections in France
     against Nicolas SARKOZY. Furthermore, she was living in the same
     village as me (CHAMAGNE). I wa looking for her genealogy when I
     found your site. Click on the link below to discover your famous cousin.

     I noticed that the families BENAL & HERIC are often from the same
     village: GUERMANGE (Moselle) but I din't found anything about
     Françoise BENAL.

     I hope that the french informations will interest and help you.

     Yours sincerely,

Descendants of Nicolas DORR
     Mathias married Marie-Marguerite CLOSSET [755] [MRIN: 73] on 31
     Aug 1801 in Morhange, France. Marie-Marguerite was born on 26 Sep
     1773 in Morhange (57 Moselle), France and died on 20 Jun 1828 in
     Morhange (57 Moselle), France at age 54. They had seven children:
     Louis Adolphe, Victor, Rosine, Cecile, Marie Anne, Jean Michile, and
     Mathias.

         5-Louis Adolphe DORR [61] was born on 12 Sep 1816 in
         Morhange, France, died on 6 Jun 1883 in Panola Co., MS at age 66,
         and was buried in Davis Chapel Cemetery, Panola Co., MS.

         Louis Dorr was born in Morhange, Mosele,France on 12 September
         1816 in the area of Alsoues, Loraine. His father was a draper and
         quite wealthy and there are stories that Louis was educated at the
         University of Paris. There is no documentation for this fact. He was
         somewhat of a scholar and speaks not only French, German and
         English with excellence, but can also make his way in two or three
         other European idioms. Before he moves to America, his mother
         dies and his father marries a younger woman with children. His
         stepmother also dies before his father's estate is settled, which
         complicats the estate. Evidently her children contest the original
         will.

         There are two different versions of why Louis comes to America.
         First is that he is a court gentleman and is required to serve five
         years in the king's army. He decides to come to America instead of
         serving in the army. He meets Frances on the boat to America and
         they are married when they arrive in Mobile, Alabama.

         The other version is that his stepmother's children contest his
         father's estate. It appears that it could be contested for a long period
         of time, and Louis decides that he could do better by coming to
         America instead of waiting for his inheritance.

         The is no documentation for either version.

         Upon arriving in Mobile, Alabama, Louis Dorr and Frances Benal
         are married on 7 June 1841. Based on the ages of Louis' children in
         the 1850 census, it appears that he and the family move to Kemper
         County between 1844-847. Louis' first three children, Selvy,
         Albert, and Narcissus, are born in Alabama. Lands records exist
         showing that Louis obtained 40 acres in Kemper County,
         Mississippi on 1 April 1856. Of the 12 children that Louis and
         Frances had, all are born except Eugene by this time.

         Apparently Louis serves in the Confederate Army in 1861 and 1862.
         Source:www.rootsweb.com/~mskemper/military/5thcoi.htm

         Louis corresponds with his brother Victor in France regularly. His
         main interest in these letters is the status of their inheritance, and he
         is always interested in how the family was. Another common
         subject is that he is unhappy where he was and plans to move. He
         also writes regularly to a Madame Heric in New Orleans. It is not
         clear who she was, but in a letter dated 27 March 1871 he refers to
         her as "Sister." Also Frances writes to her so she may have been
         Frances' sister. Madame Heric is married and has children. She
         sends Louis newspapers from New Orleans, which are his only
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
       source of information about what was happening in France. He
       especially wants news when the Prussians invade France. The fall of
       France and Napoleon seems to upset him. Copies of the letters
       written from 1868 to 1879 exist and are the basis of the following
       information about Louis and his family.

       Victor sends Louis money during 1866-1868. It is unclear if this is
       from their father's estate or personal loans from Victor. In one of the
       letters Louis comments that his stepmother had been very generous
       to the children of Fanfare. Was Fanfare Louis' mother?

       It appears that in 1868 Louis writes that he is interested in obtaining
       an additional 160 acres in Kemper County, but at the same time he
       is writing to friends that he might move to Florida or Arkansas. He
       evidently has a poor crop and says that sickness was rampant there.
       Also he is not happy with the Negro situation after emancipation. In
       general he always wants to be somewhere else. By March1870,
       Martin is in Arkansas; Norman, Albert and "the widow" (?) are in
       Texas. Narcissus has his own place 2 miles away and works with his
       father for part of the crop. Louis tries to get Narcissus to move to
       Arkansas, but he will not move.

       In late 1870 or early 1871 Louis moves to Panola County,
       Mississippi and buys120 acres on top of the bluff overlooking the
       Mississippi swamp for $2,200. This is approximately 15 miles west
       of Sardis, Mississippi. He writes Victor that his mailing address was
       Star Place, Panola County, United States. At the time he moved he
       was living 3 miles northeast of Tamola Station in Kemper County.
       Narcissus rents 30 acres of bottomland 2 miles from his father.
       Martin returns from Arkansas and is working with Narcissus.
       Norman also returns from Texas with his wife.

       Louis tells Victor that his crop was excellent that year, but there was
       much sickness being so close to the swamp. Ed and Narcissus get
       the mumps; Norman's wife dies and Narcissus loses his boy. Due to
       all of the illness after just one year at the bluff, he decides to buy
       200 acres approximately 8 miles from where he is for $3,000. He
       mentions that he was tired of paying the doctor half of his profits.
       Martin stays with Louis and rents 20 acres of his father's land. Ed
       works for Louis and receives $20 a month. Narcissus and Norman
       rent "a good little place near here." At this time he writes, "our
       family of 12 children are all living and four are married and live
       with or near us, except for Albert, who has been in Texas 5 years."
       In October 1873 he writes Victor, "we have made an excellent crop.
       Our cotton crop brought $4,000 and we are doing very well, but I
       am getting old and I do not think I will last long." In every letter he
       asks for information on the family in France. He has become a
       trustee for the school at Bishop.

       In March 1874 he writes that "I am getting too old for the work of
       the farm, and I have rented it to three of my sons for 300 piastres a
       year." He reserves 3 acres for his flower garden to have something
       to keep him busy. Jenny Ruth says, "He planted his yard as the
       castle gardens in moons, crescents, and stars and his people in
       France sent Seeds and Bulbs." He says that his eyesight is
       becoming very bad and Francoise is as fat as a little pig. Narcissus
       buys 80 acres adjoining his father's place for $900. In 1875 he
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
       writes Madame Heric that they have been able to save 3,000 piastres
       since moving to the current farm. He also tells her, "We are doing
       well at the moment. Our crops this year are excellent, better than I
       have seen in 15 or 20 years." Norman now rents land from
       Narcissus and is working on his own house. Henry now stays with
       Narcissus.

       In 1876 Martin becomes ill and Louis writes, "There is no
       improvement with him yet and I fear that there is no cure for him.
       His brain is badly affected and unless there is a change for the better
       soon, I am afraid he will lose his mind." Narcissus and Ed are doing
       very well and they buy another 160 acres. Also in 1876 Louis learns
       that the major portion of his father's estate has been lost to an
       unscrupulous lawyer.

       In October 1877 he writes, "I am too old to have anything to do with
       the farm, and I have concluded for the boys to divide the farm
       among themselves by paying a small rent to defray the expenses on
       the place." By now both Ed and Norman have been able to buy land.
       Rufus and Henry have rented a plantation of 120 acres. Martin lives
       with Louis but works for Narcissus. Eugene is the only one home
       with his parents at this time. In 1879 Albert asks his father to send
       him money so he can return home.

       The 1880 census shows that all of Louis' children are living in
       Panola County. Narcissus has married and has five children,
       Norman is married with three children, Edward is married with
       three children, Henry is married and Sylvia is married and has three
       children. The other children are farming/living with Louis. Louis is
       now 64 years old and has 14 grandhildren.

       His letters end in 1879.


       Paul Dorr's Comments

       Grandpa headed out for (let us hope) a better clime about 1883. I
       never knew him. His epitaph says (with which my father seemed to
       agree) that he was a loving husband and an indulgent father. He was
       somewhat of a scholar and spoke not only French, German and
       English with excellence, but could also make his way in two or
       three other European idioms. I have been informed that he was
       more-or-less a Freethinker, having little regard for the dogmatism of
       religion, taking the Life of Jesus as an example, and considering the
       essence of true religion to be morality and kindness. I get the
       im-pression that this is about the view of my correspondent (Raoul)
       in France. Grandma was a very fine character, with a
       wide-embracing love for, and a universal interest in, ALL of the
       grandchildren. She stored in the cellar barrels of apples every year,
       and whenever we went to see her Aunt Lilly would go down - often
       taking us with her - and fetch up apples for us. The two maiden
       aunts and Uncle Martin lived with Grandma. Your father and mine,
       and their other brothers, had for their mother almost a reverence.

       Louis married Francoise "Fannie" BENAL [62] [MRIN: 10] on 7
       Jun 1841 in Mobile Co., AL, daughter of ? BENAL [642] and
       Unknown. Francoise was born on 5 Jun 1821 in France, died on 10
       Jan 1901 in Panola Co., MS at age 79, and was buried in Davis
       Chapel Cemetery, Panola Co., MS. They had 12 children: Narcisse
       "Narcissus" Louis, Sylvia Marcellia, Albert Jacob, Norman
       Franklin, Martin Cullen, Edward Charles, Henry James, Rufus
       Marion, Frances "Fannie" (S. F.), Eugene Emile, Mary Louisa
       "Ninny," and Susan Lilla "Lillie".




            6-Narcisse "Narcissus" Louis DORR [59] was born on 2
            Dec 1844 in Mobile, AL, died on 5 Mar 1916 in Panola Co.,
            MS at age 71, and was buried in Davis Chapel Cemetery,
            Panola Co., MS.

            Narcissus' parents, Louis and Frances Dorr, arrive in America
            at Mobile, AL in 1840 and marry in 1841. He is born on
            February 2, 1844. At the time he has a two-year old sister
            Sylvia and a one-year old brother. Sometime after Narcissus is
            born but before 1847, the family moves to Kemper County,
            MS. We know this because the record of his brother Norman's
            birth shows him as being born in Kemper County.

            Very little is known of Narcissus' younger days. He has four
            sisters and seven brothers. He marries an Englishwoman
            named Sara Jane Wilkins on February 2, 1849 in Sumter, AL.
            Sumter is on the Alabama-Mississippi border next to Kemper
            County. Sara Jane is a daughter of one of Louis' neighbors.

            From Louis' letters:

            Narcissus has his own place two miles from his father and is
            working for him in return for part of the crop. His father Louis
            is never quite happy with where he is at the time and tries to
            convince Narcissus to move to Arkansas or Texas, but
            Narcissus refuses to go.
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
          In early 1871 Louis and all of his children that were in Kemper
          County moves to Panola County, MS which is in the northern
          part of the state. Louis moves to a bluff that overlooks swamp
          country and that year they are all in poor health. Martin and
          Narcissus rent 30 acres of bottomland two miles from their
          father. They pay 50 pounds lint cotton per acre, but the land is
          creek bottom and never fails to make less than a bale an acre.
          Around August Narcissus' oldest boy Edwin dies of the flu and
          in October Narcissus himself becomes very ill. Martin returns
          from Arkansas and joins Narcissus on the farm. Evidently, due
          to the poor heath conditions, Narcissus is ready to return to
          Kemper County in the fall of 1871.

          In the fall of 1872 Louis sells his land on the bluff and moves
          eight miles to the east. For a time Narcissus and Norman rent
          land in the neighborhood and work together. Later Narcissus is
          able to buy 80 acres of land adjacent to his father's place for
          $900. His father writes, "he built a very good house on it. Part
          of it is creek bottom and made a bale (and made 18 bales of
          cotton the first year) to the acre besides plenty of corn and
          potatoes." Norman is working with Narcissus at this time.

          In 1875 Norman rents land from Narcissus and is working on
          his own house. Henry is staying with Narcissus.

          In 1876 Louis writes, "Narcisse and Shug [?] are well and are
          making money like Jews. He has paid for his place and has
          besides no less than 1000 dollars on interests. Henry is still
          working with him. All three made nearly 30 bales of cotton
          last year." In 1877 Narcissus and Edward buy another farm in
          the neighborhood, 160 acres for about $10 an acre. Martin
          lives with Louis but is working for Narcissus.

          Narcissus and Sara have a total of nine children, five boys, and
          four girls. In November 1906 Sara dies. In March 1908
          Narcissus marries Lucinda "Cindy" Jackson. In 1916 Narcissus
          passes away and Cindy dies in 1920.

          Narcisse married Sara Jane WILKINS [168] [MRIN: 38] on
          2 Feb 1869 in Sumter Co., AL, daughter of Josiah Richard
          WILKINS [470] and Mary BURTON [471]. Sara was born
          on 15 May 1848 in Halifax Co., VA, died on 3 Nov 1906 in
          Panola Co., MS at age 58, and was buried in Davis Chapel

              McAlster, OK at age 39, and was buried in Rose Hill
              Cemetery, Sardis, Panola Co., MS.

              Ernest met Estelle while she was on a visit to her Aunt
              Lucy Trotter in Mississippi. They were married in a
              double ceremony with Estelle's sister Lettie in 1907 by
Descendants of Nicolas DORR

              The following was written by Dad in 1988.

              My father was killed at the 2nd Street hill in
              McAlester six months before I was born. My
              mother moved to Macon, Tennessee where I was
              born on September 3, 1918. When I was three
              months old we moved back to McAlester. My
              brother, Ernest B., was ten years older than me, and
              my sister Dorothy was six years older.

              Mother bought a nineteen-room house and took in
              roomers and boarders. We were across the street
              from the fire station and I was the mascot of the fire
              department in my younger years. I went to
              McAlester elementary, junior high and high
              schools. I worked for four years during high school
              at Dixieana Creamery and Bender Drug as a soda
              jerk. I graduated from McAlester High School in
              1936.

              Mother and I moved to Stillwater, rented a house
              and took in roomers and boarders. I worked my first
              year at Kennicutt Drug and enrolled in Electrical
              Engineering. The second year I was flunking in
              twelve hours of EE and was kicked out for the
              semester. Electrical Engineering was just not for me
              so I enrolled in Mechanical Engineering and made
              the Dean's Honor Roll. I pledged Acacia Fraternity,
              where I became social chairman, vice president and
              in my fourth year, president of my fraternity and
              also president of the Inter-Fraternity Council.
              During these years, I worked as fountain manager
              of the Midwest Creamery.

              At the 1938 Acacia Christmas party I met Maxyne
              Zerby, who was dating my best friend Bus Walker.
              During the summer of 1939 I began dating Maxyne
              and we had a wonderful courtship. On June 1, 1940
              at 9:00 PM we were married in Mr. and Mrs.
              Zerby's home by a blind Methodist preacher. Thirza
              Murphy, Ernest B. Dorr and Maxyne's brother Don
              Perry were present. We drove to Oklahoma City in
              my brother's car and arrived at the Biltmore Hotel.
              We spent two days at $4 .00 per day in Room 1707.
              We continued working and going to school and in
              January 1942 I graduated.

              Maxyne was pregnant at the time and didn't get to
              graduate. On February 15, 1942 Edward Max was
              born at Stillwater Hospital with brain damage that
              caused cerebral palsy, although it took two years
              before a doctor told us what was wrong.
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
              I started to work with Phillips Petroleum Company
              and we moved to Oklahoma City on September 23,
              1943. Dana Michael was born and a month later we
              moved to Wichita, where I worked as a power plant
              engineer for Beech Aircraft. After eleven months of
              this, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy with the rank of
              Ensign and went to Officer's Candidate School for
              two months at Hollywood Beach, Florida. Maxyne,
              Ed and Dana moved in with her folks at Perry. I was
              assigned to LST 817 for duty in the Pacific.

              Before I left my ship pulled in to New Orleans
              where Maxyne came down and spent a week with
              me. My ship then went through the Panama Canal
              and up the West Coast to Seattle. Maxyne came out
              and spent about a month with me as I went through
              firefighter and navigation schools. The next
              eighteen months were spent in action, where I was a
              navigator on the 817.

              All through college, Phillips and Beech I was a
              35mm photographer where I made pretty good extra
              money. So when my ship left Seattle, I bought all
              the development and enlarging needs and set up in
              my stateroom. My only major encounter was
              Okinawa, where 1400 ships and troops stormed the
              island. I was discharged in March 1946 with the
              rank of Lt. (jg).

              While I was away Maxyne got her degree in Art. I
              came back to Oklahoma City and went to work as a
              mechanical engineer with OG&E. We bought our
              first house at 2401 NE 27th. It was a two-bedroom
              with built-in garage, which we later turned into a
              den and still later built a double garage. Later we
              built a 20"x16" den on the back.

              On May 20, 1947 our third son Patrick B. was born.
              During this time I continued my photo business as
              well as a company called Cleaning Contractors,
              Inc., which specialized in washing walls and
              ceilings and cleaning kitchen grease ducts for
              restaurants.

              In March 1948 I left OG&E and took a job as
              engineer with an air conditioning distributor and
              contractor named C. Robert Ingram Inc. The second
              year I was made sales manager and had a pleasant
              life until November 1953, when Lewis H. Carter,
              Sr. and I left Ingram and started Comfort Inc. We
              subleased from Ingram the first year and the second
              year had a 10,000 square foot building built at 1808
              West Main, where we stayed for ten years. At the
              end of this period we build a 20,000 square foot
              building at 100 NE 34th and later added another
              15,000 square feet. We worked hard and put in
              many long days and weeks. Our business was very
Descendants of Nicolas DORR
              successful and we had a very good reputation. We
              were both distributors for Chrysler Airtemp air
              conditioning and mechanical contractors.

              On April 25, 1952 our fourth son, Jon Real Dorr,
              was born and on November 5, 1954 our fifth son,
              Kent Anthony Dorr, was born. In November 1958
              we moved into our custom-built home in
              Wildewood, where we had six bedrooms, a
              swimming pool and paddle tennis court. We lived
              here happily until March 1970, when we moved
              into our custom-built 3500 square foot house in
              Lansbrook.

              I always loved the water and boats, so in 1964 I
              bought a Lightning 19-foot centerboard sailboat.
              Maxyne didn't like jumping over the centerboard so
              the second year I traded it for an Aurora, a 21-foot
              keelboat, and joined the Oklahoma City Boat Club
              on Lake Hefner. I loved racing and won many
              trophies. As the Boat Club members began getting
              younger and I became older, I sold my boat to Ed
              and retired from sailing after about seventeen years.

              At the end of 1979 I sold my Comfort Inc. interest
              to Carter. Although I retired, I kept my office in our
              building at 100 NE 34th where I come each day
              from 11:00 until 4:00, mainly to get away from the
              house, be around people and keep books on C&D
              Investments Company, which Carter and I started
              about 1961. During this time we owned two post
              offices in small towns, a 40-unit apartment house
              and about eight oil and gas wells. We still have the
              Comfort building, which pays Carter and me about
              $25,000 a year each. This also gives me time to read
              the Wall Street Journal and several trade and
              investment magazines.

              It is now 1988 and I am seventy years old and have
              enjoyed a very full family life and have a wonderful
              wife and a bunch of kids and grandkids.

          Married 3 Times, No Children

          From Paul Dorr's Letter:

          Married Sally Baker, a widow. [I am not sure about this lady's
          given name.]
          No children. But the widow had a stalwart son named Robert
          or Bob. I met him once or twice when I visited Uncle Albert
          after he had moved from Belmont to Tocawa Springs
          [orig-inally spelled Ptocawa]. He was a hunter and sometimes
          provided the table with deer meat, bear meat and even beaver
          meet. I did not like any of them; the venison tasted too gamey
          for my plebeian palate, the bear meat was blue in color and
          tough in texture, and the beaver also had a cerulian hue and
          was (at least, to my 'grinders") both fat and stringy. (I am
          preferring a hog-meat man myself a succulent slab of the lowly
          swine even to good beefsteak. On the contrary, Helen eschews
          the delights of pig anatomy except the "hind leg" and votes for
          the 7-rib prime beef roast and the tenderloin broil!) Bob Baker
          always called Uncle Albert: "Mister Dorr."



          Albert married Frances DEES [182459] [MRIN: 306].

          Albert next married Sally (Widow Baker) LNU [95518]
          [MRIN: 307].

          6-Norman Franklin DORR [292] was born on 27 Mar 1847
          in Kemper Co., MS and died on 13 Feb 1922 in Panola Co.,
          MS at age 74.

          From Louis' letters:

          It appears that Norman went to Texas in January 1870. A
          letter dated March 1, 1870 Louis indicates Norman is in
          Texas with Albert and the widow. In the December-January
          timeframe of 1970 Norman leaves Texas and moves to Panola
          County. Her is married and works for his father for part of
          the crop. In October of 1871 Norman's wife, Fanny, dies of
          childbed fever after only five days of sickness.

          Norman works for his father for a fifth of the crop, but the
          death of his wife and his bad health since Fanny died have
          disgusted him with the country. I intends to go backer to
          Kemper shortly to regain his health and then move back to
          Texas spring of 1872.

          But it appears that Norman stays in Panola County and his
          father writes in March 1872 " Norman is with me again." The

          next year Narcisse and Norman rent land in the neighborhood
          and work together.

          In 1875 Narcisse buys 80 acres adjoining his farther's place,
          and Norman rents land from Naricisse. Norman also builds
          his own house that year and remarries in the fall. The
          follwing year Norman buys a good plantation about 3 miles
          from Louis; place for $1800. Feb 76

          The above information comes from Louis Dorr's letters.

          In the 'Panola County History' on page 69 he is shown as Civil
          War Veteran


          Paul Dorr's Comments:

          Married Josephine Bishop.
             Children. First, male, in the order of their ages; then female,
          similarly. Ira, Clinton. Maud, Byrd, Eleanor, Ora Lee, Ethel.
          Uncle Norman was a strong disciplinarian and Aunt Jo a
          splendid woman of determined character. I always thought
          Uncle Norman was very gentle with the girls but he was
          positive and (to my juvenile mind) authoritarian with the boys.
          [Inciden-tally, we probably need more of such parental
          firmness in these restless, revolutionary days of the sixth and
          seventh decades of the century]. I have often spoken of how I
          loved to visit Uncle Norman's household, not alone because
          Clinton and I were not far apart in age, but also by reason of
          the delicious Sickle pears that grew on their place and, in
          winter, the sausage Aunt Jodie cooked, so hot with cayenne
          peopper I wept in swal1owing it. Uncle Norman was afflicted
          (as I was, sorely, until I came to California) with asthma, and I
          shell never forget the odor - I would know that pungent smell
          today - of burning "Schiffman's Asthma Cure." In later times I
          would come to Uncle Norman's house and listen to Byrd's
          playing of the piano. Eleanor and my oldest Sister, Marion,
          were of nearly the same age, as was Edna




          Norman married Sara F. ? [437] [MRIN: 140] about 1870.
          Sara was born on 8 Dec 1852 and died on 3 Sep 1871 at age
          18.

          6-Martin Cullen DORR [288] was born in 1849, died in 1918
          at age 69, and was buried in Davis Chapel Cemetery, Panola
          Co., MS.


          The first reference to Martin in Louis letters is January 1870
          and Martin is in Arkansas. In the Spring of 1971 he returns to
          Mississippi and he and Narcissus are renting 30 acres of creek
          bottom two miles from his father's place.      When Louis
          moves from the bluff over looking the swamp Martin and
          Narcissus stays a little longer. Martin then joins his father
          and rents 20 acres of Louis' land.

          In 1876 Martin becomes very ill, his father writes on August
          14, "There is no improvement with him yet and I fear that
          there is no cure for him. His brain is badly affected and unless
          there is a change for the better soon, I am afraid he will lose
          his mind." Evidently Martin recovers because in September
          of the following year Louis writes about going fisting with
          Martin. In 1878 Martin still lives with Louis but is working for
          Narcissus.

          age 82, and was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Sardis, Panola
          Co., MS.

          From Louis' letters:

          In 1873 Ed is working for his father for $20 a month. In 1875
          he is still working for his father for part of the crop. In 1876
          he gets married and moves to his mother-in-law's. In 1877 he
          buys a 160 acre farm with Narcissus.

          From Paul Dorr's Letter:

          Married Patty (Trammel), [somebody tell me; I have
          forgotten]. Children. In the order of birth, I think. Male:
          Luther, Leon. Female: Edna, Jim [Vinnie?].

          Uncle Ed and his family (before Jim made her appearance in
          this Vale of Tears) lived for a long time down below
          Grandma's house at what I shall call, for want of better
          information, the junction of the Hebron and Sardis [or maybe
          Como] - Panola road. I remember one year, when Marion and
          I were walking back and forth to school at Hebron, a
          tremendous snowstorm blew up; the snow fell until it was
          three feet deep in that part of Panola County. We couldn't get
          home from school but made it to Uncle Ed's house, where we
          "holed up" for two or three days. You may not know it, but

          Luther - who many years later became a lumber-yard foreman
          and estimator for Carriers, and fell into habits of speech that
          literally butchered and beat the English language unmercifully
          - was, at school in my time, a grammar sharp! It is hard to
          believe, but he knew the English grammar back-ward and
          forward; he could bound a word or phrase or part of speech
          north, south, east and west. Honest Injun, I am not fooling.
          That bird was a purist. He was such a good language scholar
          that the teacher had a custom of requiring him to hold
          "seminars" and teach the other pupils grammar out in the grove
          under the trees! I suppose association with illiterate or
          indifferent whites and negroes at the sawmill and the
          lumber-yard, for so many years, caused him finally to feel that
          grammar was a futile weariness of the flesh and that speaking
          pure English was pedantry!

          Married Lillie Mabry. Children: male, Paul, Mabry. Female,

          old. This child and his little sister Marion were visiting
          Grandma one Sunday. Their mother, I think, had gone to see
          her father who lived in the Eldorado neighborhood, and their
          father, after taking the children to visit their grand-mother,
          went on, unless I am mistaken, to visit one of his brothers.
          Shortly after he returned to gather up the two infants and take
          them home, a negro riding bareback hell-for-leather turned
          from the road to the big gate of grandma's yard and yelled to
          my father that his house was burning down. Uncle Rufus (to
          keep the story intelligible) rushed off the steps of grandma's
          porch where he was sitting, the negro man tumbled from the
          horse and I can still see my father, heading north, his horse on
          a dead run - but alas! too late. Everything, even the money
          from his cotton crop, just sold, and the returns from which he
          had locked in a small cabinet (called in those days a
          "secretary"), went up in smoke. All of the brothers pitched in
          and helped Uncle Rufus build a new and simple house to
          house his family. I stood around, poked among the ashes, arid
          was an infantile observer of the building; and I was not the
          only observer: somebody had captured a screech-owl and tied
          him atop a gate-post. He sat there watching solemnly, but
          never uttered a screech to indicate whether or not he approved
          the plans.




          Rufus married Lillie R. MABRY [313] [MRIN: 91] in Dec
          1880 in Sardis, Panola Co., MS. Lillie was born in 1860, died
          about 12 Jul 1935 in Panola Co., MS about age 75, and was

          1857.

          From Paul Dorr's letter:

          Aunt Fannv was rather timid - probably contributed to by the
          extreme extroversion of Joe McGuire; as a housekeeper she
          did not shine with exceptional brilliancy, but she was a kind
          and affectionate mother. When I was a very small child, Aunt
          Fanny and Mr. McGuire had married and were living in
          Coahoma County; my mother corresponded with her, telling
          her about my brown-to-auburn curls and my dawning
          intelli-gence [which was most probably very slow in rising
          above the horizon!] I found some of the old letters when I
          worked for Joe McGuire in the Delta many years later!

          Paul Dorr's Comments

          Married (1) Alice Coleman, a sometimes slightly affected, but
          charming and lovely woman who (within my knowledge) was
          always gentle. Children: Male: Will Hale, Lloyds Richard.
          Married (2) Pearl (Brooks) [you will have to supply the lady's
          surname]. They had no children. This household, like No. 6,
          above, produced no progeny on the "distaff" side. I have
          previously written you several recollections of life with Uncle
          Gene.
