"Dorman-Mrs. Laura Dorman, 95, died Friday, Mar. 17, 1944, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. 0. E. Doty, 310 E. Chippewa. She had been in poor health several years, due to her advanced age. Laura, daughter of James and Martha Snowden, was born Nov. 26, 1848, at DeKalb, Mo. The family moved to Kansas when she was a child and on Aug. 5, 1865, she was married to James [sic, George] E. Dorman at which was then Fort William, Kan. To them were born 13 children, seven sons and six daughters, eight of whom preceded the mother in death.

Mr. Dorman, who had been deputy county treasurer of Osage County about eight years, died in May 1899.

She was Kansas pioneer, having lived in the state when it was undeveloped and she knew the hardships of the pioneer mother. She loved to talk of her pioneer experience. During her declining years she was cared for at the home of Mrs. Doty and at the home of another daughter, Mrs. B. M. Potter of Easton. Mrs. Dorman is survived by two sons, Herbert and Charles Dorman of Rock Island, III., three daughters, Mrs. Potter, Mrs. Doty and Mrs. S. B.
