finding your roots

relatives

Monica D (Walker) Potts March 25, 2012

I am told that my grandfather on my mother’s side was a Pullman Porter, (Herman Dorsey), and that my great grandfather was Thomas Andrew Dorsey, on my mom’s side also. I would love to know this as factual. Some other lady also told me that Alice Walker was in some type of relationship with th3e Dorseys.
