First, I am researching Nancy Dorrell b. KY... Now second I believe (With no proof) that the IN Dorrells and the MO Dorrells are all related...since they seem to both come out of KY.
third, I went to ancestry.com and in put Elizabeth Dorrell.
I found in the 1850 census for Greene Co., Mo...
Now the funny thing is the family living next door was
Richard Graves wife Elizabeth...
I do not think the Dorrell family listed below was your Elizabeth's parents, BUT do believe they are related, if in fact the family living next door, is your Richard Graves and wife Elizabeth Dorrell.
Some families did name children with the same name but usually only if the first child had died... He could easly be her Uncle or brother, or what ever...
