Honoring Our Veterans

In 1902, the Dorman’s arrived in Bosque County from Louisiana, buying 2,300 acres, and putting down the clan’s Texas roots. Ninety-two year old E.S. “Dugan” Dorman is the last still living of the nine children they raised, still living off the land he was raised on. Whereas two of the Dorman boys died before their 10th birthdays – one after a fire panic at a Waco Theatre, the other of a rattler’s bite- the others lived long, long lives. Maybelle even made it to 104. But Dugan is the one with the stories to tell.
