Hello, from the Left Coast State of California!
I am researching my DOUGHERTY Line & this is all I know:
One of my Great-GrandPappies on my mothers side was named William Preston Dougherty.
He was supposedly born in Kentucky in the early 1870's & supposedly died in the early 1940's.
His wife was one Mittie Alice Frays (Fraze, Fraize, Fraise???) who may have been born in the early 1870's & may have died in Owensboro, Kentucky between 1915 & 1918.
Mittie may be a nickname for MARY as my mother was named after her.
They had 3 children:
DAUGHTER: Golda Emma(?). B.May 13, 1892 in Fordsville, Ky. D. March 7, 1964 in Los Angeles, Ca.
Married to an Albert R. Sweatt who died in June 1939 in Kentucky.
SON: JOHN ALVIE. B. Aprox. 1895 D. October 1970 in Owensboro, Ky.. His death certificate has his name spelled as Daugherty.
DAUGHTER: IVA FRANCIS. B. March 4, 1897 in Fordsville, Ky. D. June 6, 1983 in Montclair, Ca.. She was my Grandmother through a daughter from her 2nd marriage (William J. Wells)
Mittie Alice's parents were supposedly an Edward Frays & Susan Emma Tanner.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
