Dorsey

Dorsey was near the junction of Dorsey and Ripley creeks, about nine miles northwest of Mount Pleasant in northwestern Titus County. The Dorsey post office was operated by Henry S. Summerlin at his mill and gin from 1891 to 1893. An abandoned public cemetery nearby containing between fifty and 100 graves suggests that there was an organized community at Dorsey at least for a brief period, but nothing further is known about the settlement.
