Dorcas died on 9 November 1755 at Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut at the age of 62.
Burial place is unknown. There is a virtual Cemetery Memorial.
The date for the birth for Dorcas has been changed from 6 Mar 1692 to 6 Mar 1693. Anna (Mulford-22), the older sister of Dorcas, was born 28 Jul 1691 which would put just 8 months between the two births. There is a hand written note in the Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988 for Anna Mulford that shows the birth of Dorcas as Mar 1693, although the three appears to be written over a number and there is a /2 below the three. Furthermore, there is a citation at Family Search about the history of the Eldredge family that lists the birth of Dorcas as 6 March 1693.  The reference lists her complete death date as 31 January 1755.
