Joseph DOUGHERTY or DAUGHERTY and wife Rebecca were parents of Nancy Jane, born 21 March 1815 (in Ohio, according to the 1850 Saline Co, AR, census). I'm hoping to identify their ancestors, siblings and other children.
Nancy Jane married her first husband, Alvadore K. HIGGINS, on 11 September 1834, in Vermillion County, Indiana. Other DOUGHERTY/DAUGHERTY marriages occurred in Vermillion County around the same time. I'm wondering if these were Nancy's relatives. I've seen only the internet listings (Indiana Marriages to 1850), so don't know how much information is available in the early Vermillion County records.
Nancy Jane and Alvadore HIGGINS moved to Arkansas sometime before 1842. Nancy's first husband died in 1844; and, in 1848, she married a widower, John Crunk DOUGLASS (b 1814 TN). They had two sons: James Edward (b 1851) and John Joseph (b 1857). NancyJane (DOUGHERTY) DOUGLASS died 21 March 1857, in Saline Co, Arkansas. John C. DOUGLASS remarried and had at least two more children.
Any information about my DAUGHERTY or DOUGHERTY ancestors will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Eva
