Photo of Will T. White and Texana Dorsey
Hi Patty,

William James Dorsey is my G-g-grandfather also. Texana was my G-grandmother, and her daughter, Mable Flora White (Bloyd) was my grandmother.
I got Will & Texie's wedding photo from Lisa Klein a few years ago. Her grandmother, my great aunt Nell White (Nelson) was my grandma's baby sister.
Will is buried in Pyburns Cemetery with a number of his White family members. Texie and her family moved to the Searcy, Arkansas area after Will died, and later on moved to Dallas to be closer to Texie's family in that area. Texie died of pneumonia in 1940. Lisa Klein found Texie's and her daughter Grace's (who died of tuberulosis in 1936) unmarked graves in the Masonic & Odd Fellows section of Grove Hill Cemetery in Dallas. Texie is in Section 45, lot 28, space 6, and Grace is in Section 45, lot 29, space 10. They are side-by-side, but the lot dividing line is between their graves.
Will White was a Mason, as I am, and I think Texie was in the Eastern Star.
Did you know that William Dorsey was a Confederate veteran of the 10th Mississippi Infantry, Co. C? He received a pension from the state of Texas in his later years. Will's father, James A. White however, was a Union veteran of the 2nd Tennessee Mounted Infantry (US), Company D. He also received a Civil War pension, and his application was signed and notarized by his son Will in 1915.
Have to go for now, so TTYL.
