Below is all the information I have on my family. Any additional information will be greatly appreciated.Help yourself to any information that may help you.
Benjamin Dougherty b. 1796, County Down, Providence Ulster (townland or parish not known at this time) d. 18 Nov. 1882, Anglican Cemetery, Lower Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada (Today named “Parish of Woodstock” Christ Church. Parish Rectory Anglican Church`), arrived Canada 1839 with 5 children and 4 more were born in Canada. Benjamin’s tombstone (which is broken) in the Anglican Cemetery in Lower Woodstock, NB gives his name as Dougherty but the burial record from the church records reads “#126 Dogherty, Benjamin of Richmond (buried) d. 21 Nov 1882 86 years”.Benjamin’s stone has another name listed on it and we believe it is Hugh.We will have to contact the church to confirm this. Sarah’s stone “In Memory of Sarah wife of Benjamin Dougherty died June 20, 1875 aged 69 years”.Benjaminm. Sarah Anne Anderson 21 April 1824 at Drumglass Church, Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, Ireland More commonlycalled “St. Anne’s Church. In 2005 I visited this church site but the old church had been torn down and a new one erected in its place. I have pictures of the new church. (I have acopy of the Marriage License Bond LDS film 100859, Diocese of Armagh in my file)..

In theTithe Applotment 1823 - 38 there is a Benjamin Dougherty entered as living in Mulinaloghog townland, Clonoe parish Tyrone. Clonoe is fairly close to Drumglass parish.Also a Joseph Dougherty in the same place. I have a family tree on a Joseph Doherty b. 1794 in Ireland and all his descendents.At this time I am not sure if he is a brother to Benjamin or if he is Joseph A. as listed in the history of Glassville located below.
Also Alex. Anderson was in Drumcoo townland Drumglass parish 1832

NOTE: Dungannon town is in the civil parish of Drumglass.Benjamin married Sarah Anne Anderson but I am not sure if the above listed Andersons are from her family
Sarah Anne Anderson, b. 1806 Ireland, d. 20 June 1875

Some family history
Excerpt taken from” History of Glassville” compiled by Pioneer Senior Citizens Club.
Patrick Dougherty was granted two lots of land fronting on the West side of the Meduxnekeag River, in 1829, in the Parish of Richmond. George Dougherty was granted a lot in the Parish of Woodstock, in 1831.Isaac Dougherty was granted a lot of land in the Parish of Richmond, just over the Parish line from the George Dougherty lot, in 1861.Joseph A. Dougherty was granted a lot in the Parish of Woodstock, about two miles south from the George and Isaac Dougherty lots, in 1862.Just how these four men were related cannot be determined.The census of 1851, lists Isaac Dougherty and his wife, Catherine, and nine children.The parents were born in Ireland, but the children were born in New Brunswick.Both of the parents arrived in New Brunswick in 1822 (Confirmed in the 1851 N.B. census).The oldest child was born in 1832, suggesting that the parents married about 1830, in New Brunswick. Isaac Dougherty was probably a son of either Patrick Dougherty or George Dougherty, who may also have arrived in New Brunswick in 1822, since their grants were issued in 1829 and 1831.
Isaac Dougherty and Catherine McGinchey
Isaac b. 1801 Ireland d. 1864 N.B. Canada
Catherine McGinchey b. 1811 Ireland m. 1828 Wakefield N.B. Canada
Taken from the 1851 N.B. Census (Isaac could be a brother to Benjamin, must look further to determine)
Benjamine born 1839, Jane 1839, John, 1839, Joseph born 1830 and Sarah born 1839 she is 56 at that time. all were Angeligans and went to Richmond New Brunswick. This was in the 1861 index
Catherine McGinchey, b. 1811 Ireland, married 1828, Wakefield, New Brunswick, Canada to Isaac Doherty/Dochery/Daugherty. 1851 census of Carleton Co. N.B., states that Isaac came to Canada in 1822. Was Catherine already here with her family? She may have been born in County Down, Ireland where her husband was born? Isaac and Catherine lived in Woodstock, Carleton Co. N.B., having had many children.
Benjamin Dougherty, his wife Sarah, and five children, arrived in New Brunswick, in 1839.Four more children were born in New Brunswick.The new arrivals appear to have been related to the earlier settlers.By 1875, Benjamin Dougherty was still living in the parish of Woodstock, not far from Mrs. Catherine McGinchey Dougherty who was now a widow.Five sons of Benjamin Dougherty had taken up lots in West Glassville, as did one of the sons of Isaac and Catherine Dougherty.All in all, ten lots, each containing one hundred acres, were granted to members of the Dougherty Family.Isaac Dougherty and Joseph Dougherty, two brothers who had married sisters before leaving the Parish of Richmond, arrived in West Glassville about 1865 or earlier.It would appear that there were no vacant lots South of the Shiktehawk Stream, when the Dougherty brothers decided to join the new settlement.Isaac Dougherty settled first on lot #31(this lot was most likely in West Glassville).He brought his wife and two small children with him.His brothers, Hugh and Thomas had lots on either side of the Isaac lot.No doubt the first log cabin sheltered the extended family.Thomas is listed as a lumberman in the 1871 census, and may have been away in the logging camps for much of the time.Thomas, found a wife after arriving in West Glassville.He was still living in West Glassville, in 1881, now with a67 wife, Jane, and children.Hugh A. Dougherty did not remain long in West Glassville.

Glassville (Carleton Co.): A Retrospective History of Its Rise and Progress by Marchmont - The Glassville colony was originally planted by the late Rev. C.G. GLASS in the years 1860 and 1861. The first settlers were from Scotland, St. John's. King's, Queens', York and Carleton counties, N.B. and from Halifax, N.S. Not of few of those who first took up land here, soon became dissatisfied, sold out and left for the U.S. &c. Those who originally came out from Scotland under Mr. Glass, and those who moved in here to join the Colony from other quarters in the earlier years of the decade who remained on their farms and whose representative family members are still with us were:

Another brother, John, also obtained a lot nearby.He returned to the Parish of Richmond, having sold his lot to George Reeleder.
Isaac Dougherty remained in Glassville for the remainder of his life.WilliamIsaac Dougherty and Hannah Marie Segee (our great grandparents, see below) raised a large family.Three of their sons, Benjamin, Richard and Rastus, my grandfather, (Rastus is Erastus as in the 1871 Census Aberdeen, Carleton Co. N.B., in 1881 Erastus was listed as James, his whole name was Erastus James Dougherty, Doherty comes later, and in the 1891 Census he dropped the E and became Rastus), remained in the area.All three sons married sisters, Brooker girls from Fielding.Rastus (Erastus) may have been named for Augustus Dougherty, a brother of Isaac, who was also granted a lot in the West Glassville Settlement.Augustus Dougherty did not remain long in West Glassville, after receiving the grant to his lot. Isaac Dougherty's son, Benjamin, nick-named "Black Ben", remained in West Glassville, all his life.His descendants, are still living in West Glassville and nearby Gordonsville, and from time to time, the jet black hair, which gave rise to the "Black Ben" nick-name, appears.Joseph Dougherty, a brother of Isaac, arrived in West Glassville about the same time as did Isaac and Hannah.Joseph and Lucy chose a lot a mile or so away from Isaac’s homestead.Their son, Thomas W. was, in due course, granted a lot next to that of his parents.Joseph and Lucy also raised a large family.They also had a son named Benjamin.This Ben was not blessed with the Jet-black hair, so he was always referred to as 'White Ben".Thomas and Benjamin farmed all of their lives in West Glassville.Thomas W. Dougherty had one son, Hugh, who also farmed in West Glassville and left his farm to his son, Frank, who also farmed in West Glassville.Thomas W. Dougherty and his wife, Grace had three daughters.Two of the daughters, Josephine and Aurilla, married and lived in Glassville.Josephine married John Black and raised a large family, as did Aurilia who married Frederick Elliot.The Black and Elliot Families will be dealt with in greater detail elsewhere.The sons of White Ben Dougherty were not farmers.Two of them, Albert and Edward, worked as millwrights and saw filers, at Juniper.The third son, George, became a jeweler and watch maker.In the days when horses supplied the power on the farms and in the woods, the Dougherty men, from West Glassville, always had good horses and were willing to work them.When produce from farm and wood lot was hauled to market, often in winter, the Dougherty teams were among the best and well handled. One of the few viable farms continuing in production in West Glassville is operated by the father and son team of Cecil and Allan Doherty, as the name is now spelled.The farmland was 99, I to members of the Dougherty Family over a century ago.

NOTE: The following is from the memory of various people who new my GGgrandfather.
In this part of the family history William Isaac is called Isaac Ian Doherty.He came from the “Protestant side of Ireland” as his Grandson Claude use to tell it.He may have com from Donegal about 1840 or 1850.He lived in Glassville and Married Hanna Segee.Isaac and Hanna had a least three boys: Erastus, Benjamin aka Benny and Richard.

Bea had a son Wendell but she and Uncle Orland never had children.We think the reason they never married was that Bea received some kind of pension from her deceased husband and if she married the pension would stop (this information was provided by Geraldine Brooker Doherty , my Cousin,and needs to be expanded and confirmed.)
Kathleen, was the daughter of Erastus and Kate his second wife ( Kathleen Married a Curtis of Mars Hill Maine).
Alice died at age 17 from TB and lived in a tent in front of the home until her passing.She is listed on the tomb stone with Erastus and Janette but she is believed to be buried in the Gordonsville Cemetery, but no marker has been found at this time.
