Several children were born in Maryland, by this first marriage (Henry, Ann, Jane, Rachel and John) after wife died, Francis Dorsett moved to Chatham County, NC where in 1759 he married Rebecca McSwain. During the period 1765-1771, Francis was openly a member of the "Regulators" who struggled with the English Colonial governor Tryon. Of known children born to Francis Dorsett and wife Rebecca McSwain, there are at least John born 1760, Solomon born 1763, Henry born 1777, and Nancy.

Father Jonathon Prather Born: 1666 Sep 12 Died:
Mother Born: 1668 Died: 1668
Married: 1759  
Rebecca McSwain Notes: In most sources, her father is believed to be David McSwain b. 1700 in Scotland d. 1770 in NC and buried in Shelby, Cleveland Co. but she does not show up on any list of children for his sources (except for family trees in Family Search). Her dates here do match up for her to be a child of David McSwain and Margaret Sargeant however. Those McSwains ended up in Cleveland/Rutherford County, much farther south of Chatham County where she met and married Thomas Francis Dorsett, but they were making their way south from PA and MD over several years and some continued south to GA. In NC Land Grants, there is a McSwine receiving 300 Acres in 1788 and 400 acres in 1782, so too late for it to be her father. Also there is a David McSwine on the Early Tax List of Orange County in 1779. These are probably a brother, son of David born 1700.
