Moses S Dorsett
Birth: 1871
Death: Jul. 18, 1918
Morganton
Burke County
North Carolina, USA

Moses S Dorsett is the unmarried son of William B Dorsett and Elizabeth Amanda Loy Dixon. Moses was born in either Burlington, Alamance county or Albright, Chatham county. He is a half-brother to Amanda Dixon, Cicero Dixon and John Henry Dixon and a full brother to Esper Dorsett Cude and Soloman Albright Dorsett. He may be a twin to Soloman.

By 1880 the census indicated that the children's mother was insane. Moses' admission to the asylum began in 1901 and he died 16 years later of "exhaustion from dementia, dementia praecox (schizophrenia)". The census and death certificate indicates he had been a woodworker and a workman in a furniture factory.
