p. 824: MAJOR C. DORCHESTER, farmer, P. O., Centre Road Station, was born June 27, 1810, in Parish, N. Y. ; son of Reuben and Sophia Dorchester, former of whom died when our subject was very young; the latter kept house in Mercer County, Penn., until she remarried. Our subject lived with his grandfather until 1828, in which year he purchased sixty-two acres of land partially cleared. October 2, 1834, he married Miss Nancy Tuttle, a native of North East, Erie Co., Penn. Two children were born to this union : Ruth S., wife of Edwin Egbert, and Reuben S. Mrs. Dorchester was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church; she died in 1838. Mr. Dorchester then married, in 1840, Miss Elizabeth E. Sackett, a native of Edinburg, Portage Co., Ohio, born March 28, 1819, and daughter of Samuel S. Sackett, a farmer. By this union there are three children : Seth S., who was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion; Emeline E., wife of Jacob Van Slyke, and Caroline E., wife of Edwin Lawrence. Our subject and wife have been members of the Methodist Episcopal Church for over fifty years. He moved to Crawford County in April, 1853, and settled on the farm he now owns and lives on in Conneaut Township. In politics he is a Republican with strong temperance proclivities.
