William "Silvey" Dorris, youngest son of Jasper Newton Dorris and 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 Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia, at Grady Memorial Hospital.

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