I am looking for Dortch family as well. My great grandfather was Joseph Monroe Dortch.
I have yet to find who the Monroe was that Joseph was named after. Family lore has it that someone in the family owned a plantation in southern Arkansas. This has not been confirmed. Joseph's father, O.C. Dortch was supposedly born in Arkansas in the late 1830s or early 1840s however, I don't know who O.C.'s father was. Of course I am wondering if there is some connection with the LA Dortchs. What part of LA is Monroe Parish in? Do you have any other information on the Monroe Parish Dortchs?
