Any Dolsay, Dolsey, Dolsy or DxLSxx variant? Supposed to have originated in Maine territory or in nearby Canada early 1800’s. Possibly related in some way to the Doll surname in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, especially around 1870’s.

I was wondering if anyone has any updates on the mystery surrounding the Lineage VIII Nicholas County, WV (then VA) Dorseys? Family done genealogy efforts have always found my relations to be related to John and Arah Stockdale Dorsey through their son Samuel W. Dorsey born 1798 in Maryland (who married Nancy "Myra" Nutter born 1802). Any information anyone has would be really appreciated. Thank you!

“I would like to update/create a missing branch of the Dorsey tree connecting Leakin/Lacon Dorsey who helped settle Stockton's Station, Flemingsburg, Ky to Edward Dorsey I,the Immigrant. Leakin is NOT the Larkyn who served in the Revolution as many resources report. His father is Joshua who moved from MD to Frederick Co, VA, I know he has a probate there dated 1778, but cannot access it!. Joshua's father was Edward III, who married Phoebe/ Philomena, and names him in his will. Is there a way to update? I have no information about his other children, except Rachel who married Maj. George Stockton.”

“Hi again. I posted previously about getting an error when trying to upload my results from Ancestry to FTDNA. I have since successfully completed the transfer, but I do not know how to compare my results to the DNA Results for this project. Can someone help? My earliest known ancestor is John Dorsey b. abt. 1800, d. abt. 1833, first appears on the 1830 Census in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana. He married Catherine Riggs, sister of Eli Riggs, who also appears on the 1830 Census. Any assistance in trying to link my info with this project would be greatly appreciated.”
