The following is the only information that I have been able to find on my great great grandparents Ralph & Sarah (Reed)Dougherty.I have not been able to find anything on Marcus Dougherty, either.I don't believe there were other siblings of Rebecca & Marcus.Believe Ralph may have been a casualty of the Civil War??If Marcus was indeed born in Ohio then Ralph & Sarah must have moved back there, or was visiting, at time of his birth as Ralph & Sarah married in Illinois and Rebecca was born in Illinois.
1. RALPH1 DOUGHERTY was born 1835 in Ohio (1860 IL census Mason County). He married SARAH REED January 29, 1857 in Mason County, Illinois, daughter of GEORGE REED and MARY REED. She was born 1838 in Ohio (1860 IL census Mason County).
Notes for SARAH REED: IGI states marriage date as January 27, 1857, Mason County, IL
1860 Mason Co., IL census has a Nancy Reed age 25 in household of Ralph & Sarah along with an Erastus C. Howell age 26
Children of RALPH DOUGHERTY and SARAH REED are: i. MARCUS D.2 DOUGHERTY, b. 1858, Ohio (1860 IL census Mason County). ii. REBECCA JANE DOUGHERTY, b. February 04, 1862, Mason City, Mason County, Illinois; d. April 30, 1945, Stevens County, Washington; m. GEORGE BENJAMIN WILCOX, December 23, 1880, Mason City, Mason County, Illinois; b. April 25, 1858, Tazewell County, Illinois; d. April 13, 1924, Stevens County, Washington.
Any help that anyone can give me will be greatly appreciated.Thank you. Antoinette (Tacoma, Washington) firstname.lastname@example.org
