Dee Simon I have the cremated remains of James Hugh Dorsey. I would like to make certain that his remains end up with family members. He was born Aug. 12, 1938 in Dublin, Georgia, died Jan. 28, 1998, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It's my understanding that he has/had a sister living in Atlanta. His father was James Henry Dorsey. His mother was Willie Bertha Shiva. Please contact Dee Simon, [contact link].
