I am also African American and our Dortch family has a reunion yearly for the past 17 years with upwards of 500 Dortch's from coast to coast 3rd and 4th generation. We are also decendants from German white slave owners (Dortch's) most African Americans are, however.

This year's reunion is being held in Chicago in July. We go as far back as mid 1800's with some Dortch's. John, Henry. I did a short biography a few years ago, but cannot locate it immediately. Can email you later if you wish.

I have met some members of your branch in Memphis. They are Flora Jones and Birtha Dortch, the sister of Mandy. I gave Flora an
extract of the Fayette Co. Tn 1910 census with the name Willie Dortch and his family. This was the g-father of Flora and Birtha.
I also found Caldonia Dortch your ancestor from Ark. who died in Il. She was on the social security index. Richard gave me some
names but I lost the info. Any help you can give me on names born in the mid or late 1800
would be appreciated. Hope to see you at the
picnic on the 22nd.

Are there any Rayfords or James?

I have had trouble finding Dortch's. I live in Indiana. I have had a lot of trouble, because, my father died when was six. My grandfather died 2 years ago, his name was Charles. He was from Arkansas. Anyone that knows more, let me know.
