    Henry Otto Dorman (also known as Harry O. Dorman) was born September 1852 in Maryland, son of Daniel Dorman and Marie Christian Lauderbach Rubright (also known as Mary C.). About 1859 the family moved to Williamsport, Pennsylvania where they became very prominent in the community being in the brick/contracting and mercantile businesses.

    Henry O. Dorman married Martha Regina Winner in Williamsport on September 7, 1876. They had six children, Raymond O., Elizabeth W., Mary R., Cora B., Harry L., and Martha L. Dorman. The Dorman family moved to Corning, New York where Henry engaged in business with his brother Charles A. Rubright in the firm of Rubright & Dorman, operating the business of the Corning Brick and Terra Cotta Works.

    This is about all the family information I have on Harry O. Dorman. I have yet to find any family photo's.
