From Revolutionary Patriots of Anne Arundel, p. 53:
"Married Elizabeth Worthington and had 7 children: Nicholas Worthington Dorsey, Elizabeth Dorsey Warfield, Lloyd Dorsey, Anne Worthington Dorsey Worthington, Mary Dorsey Dorsey, Joshua Dorsey and Sarah Dorsey Ball (Ref: R-62. However, this source does not credit Nicholas with taking the Oath of Allegiance in 1778.) He took the Oath of Allegiance on March 12, 1778 before Hon. John Dorsey, but Source B-26 (a published list of those who took the oath) mistakenly gives his name as Nicholas Dorsey of Edward. The original Maryland State Papers, Red Book 22, gives his name as 'Nicholas Dorsey, of Josa.', which indicates that Nicholas Dorsey of Joshua took the Oath of Allegiance, and not Nicholas Dorsey of Edward,q.v. Also, Source T-277 states he died in 1780, not in 1792)."
Noted events in his life were:
• Will, 6 Mar 1789.
• Probate: of his estate, 3 Nov 1792.
Nicholas married Elizabeth Worthington, daughter of John Worthington II and Helen Hammond. (Elizabeth Worthington died on 17 Nov 1803.)
