Samuel N.P. Dorsett, 1848-1933, is buried in the Cooper Cemetery near DeRidder, Beauregard Parish, La., with a UCV marker. The son of Joseph Smith Dorsett of old Campbell (now south Fulton) County, Ga., Samuel was a prominent merchant and county official (clerk of court, county treasurer, postmaster, newspaper owner) of Douglas County, Ga. in the 1880s and 1890s. His first two wives, Nannie Abercrombie and Susan Anderson, are buried in Douglas County. Samuel N.P. Dorsett was one of the last surviving veterans of the War Between the States in the DeRidder area.

His CSA pension records show that in 1896, following the death of his second wife in 1894, Samuel left Georgia for Louisiana, leaving behind two teenage children.

Samuel's two children who survived to adulthood were Dr. Theo Dorsett, buried in Atlanta, Texas, and schoolteacher Ezma Dorsett Lindley, buried in Powder Springs, Cobb County, Ga.

The 1920 census of DeRidder shows that Samuel N. Dorsett was aged 71, a lawyer, with wife Mabel M. 31, born Louisiana, father born Mississippi, mother born Louisiana. What was Mabel's maiden name?
