Peter Ouzts I and His Descendants by Hortense Woodson, 1949, p. 90 Edgefield SC US Census 1850,1860,1870,1880 John Melvin Dorn left Edgefield SC for Mount Hilliard AL in 1871, where he met and married Talvia Ann McCreless. They had 11 children in AL. The family moved to Falls County TX in 1886 then on to Colorado TX on November 18, 1890. There he with neighbors, Boswell, Green, and Richardson, built a church meeting and school house, later known as Dorn Chapel. This county was later named Mitchell County and many descendants are from Colorado City TX.

ORAL FAMILY TRADITION:
John Melvin Dorn lived on a plantation owned by his father in South Carolina. His father went away to the Civil War (Confederate army, of course), and John Melvin (age 15) wanted to go, too, but his father insisted he stay and take care of the plantation and the family. When word came that the Union Army was on its way through, John Melvin's mother had him take the slaves and hide in the fields until the soldiers left. The soldiers took food and anything else they wanted from the plantation. Later, when the Civil War was over, the slaves were told they were free to go, but they chose to stay with the Dorn family.
John Melvin's grandfather had been a wealthy man in Germany until a war there wiped out his fortune (when the Mark became worthless).
When John Melvin married and had his own family, he decided to move to Texas, so he hired two railroad cars and put the livestock in one car and the family and household goods in the other and headed for Texas on Nov. 1, 1890.
The area in Texas where the Dorns settled (in Mitchell County, near Colorado City) became known as the Dorn Community. There was a Dorn School and the Dorn Church. The church, still in existence, bears a historical marker with dates and information.1 John Melvin Dorn was also known as called Grandad Dorn by his descendants.2 He was born on 24 August 1850 at Mount Hilliard, Alabama, (alternate date and location - 13 Feb. 1849, Edgefield, SC). He was the son of Wright Peter Dorn and Sarah Sallie Ouzts.3,4 He married Talvy Ann McCreless, daughter of John Milton McCreless and Hannah Moore, after 1869. He died on 14 April 1937 at Colorado City, Mitchell County, Texas, at age 86.3
