    Perminda apparently stated the 1911 Census of Confederate Veterans of Arkansas that "Greenberry Dorsey my grandfather, Mary Dorsey my mother" and that she was born 4 miles north of Centre Point, Howard County (Sevier County at time of her birth), Arkansas, on Messer Creek. This confirms the variable reference to the family surname as Dossey or Dorsey, with Dossey being the most commonly used.

    William Standlee's information, based on communications with Mrs. C. E. Sanders and Mrs. Ethel Wood, have Calvin Story and Perminda Briscoe being married 27 May 1866 (when Calvin was 27 and Perminda 22), while data for Calvin Story references show marriage 3 June 1855, when Calvin 16, Perminda 11, which is rather less likely. Calvin was a Confederate soldier, so it is much more likely that they married subsequent to the Civil War. Dolores Story Boyd also has the marriage date 27 May 1866.

    While Calvin Story was a CSA veteran, no details of service were given in above reference.
