Notes for Madam Dorcas Ajamubaghan ETIE EJOH-OKI
Of Ifie, near Warri, Benin. Nigeria. A member of the Itsekiri tribe in Warri in Mid West Nigeria, Benin. See History of the Itsekiri by William Moore.55

Professor Lloyd: “Historically, the ltsekiri have a monarchy, over 500 years old, and which, as a rallying point in their society, remains its supreme government. From 1480 to now, there have reigned 19 Olus: five Olus of the pre-Christian era; 1480 - 1597: eight Roman Catholic Olus from 1597-1735, and six Olus of the post-Roman Catholic Christian era.”

Had only the one child; said to have subsequently married on two or possibly three occasions Nigerians who most likely, but not certainly, were Itsekiri. Dates of marriages and names of husbands unknown.  One was said to have left to trade in eastern Nigeria.  She was a trader, mainly in textiles.  She took care of Adebisi Olumide and Billy Dudley – her grandchildren – before they went to secondary school.  No husband was living with her while Billy was young.  Domestic help was provided by resident young girls.

Memorial service held at Christ African Church, Warri, on Sunday 10 August, 1969
