----------------------------------------------------

There is some indication that there may have been more children born to John and Lucinda although they do not show up in the family Bible which was sketchy at best. The 1820 census shows John Dorman as having 3 female children under 10 years of age. Finnie (Lucinda) is the only one accounted for in that age group. A possible daughter could have been Serena Dorman who married Travis Ivey in the 1830's. She is mentioned in John Dorman's probate records. Another possible daughter could be Perthena Dorman (born 1814), who married Godfrey Bedsill in Fayette County, Georgia in 1833. Godfrey Bedsill (or Betsill) died in 1837. Perthena later married Dr. W. H. Blalock. George W. M. Dorman, my great-grandfather, referred to her in his notebook as "Aunt Porthina" Blalock. This would indicate that she was a sister to George's father, Richmond and therefore a daughter of John and Lucinda. Perthena died on June 3, 1882. Dr. Blalock died on Feb. 26, 1876. Both are buried in the Fayetteville City Cemetery.

Notes:
Godfrey Betsill DID not die in 1837 as reported...Their was another Godfrey Betsill in Fayette
that perhaps died. This one that died in 1837 was SR., as ive read articles associating a Sr with a Jr.

Connecting Betsill has been some task !!!...wrong names,wrong dates...
