~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~

William "Silvey" Dorris, youngest son of Jasper Newton Dorris & Frances Adena Gillespie Dorris, is buried beside his parents. From what I understand, he was living in Texas (possibly with relatives) and became ill. Some relatives brought him home and he passed away in Georgia.

Married Lee Wood, January 7, 1906, Milton County (now Fulton County), Georgia. Her burial locale is not known.

His siblings are:

Charles Brechenridge Dorris
Indiana Tallulah Dorris Lackey
Nancy Ann Permelia Dorris Jameson
John G. Dorris
Isa Dora Josephine Dorris Broadwell
Luther Newton Dorris
James Lowry Dorris
Ida M. Dorris Rucker
Nettie Bell Dorris Blackwell
