Folks this is an invite, but also to pass along new information.I have been watching and using this message board for over four years trying to get past my brick wall in SC - Joseph Doughty Sr born ca 1755.I am happy to report that we have found that Joseph Doughty Sr has an exact ydna match with John Doty Sr of old Rowan County NC, and also an exact ydna match with Jeremiah Doty/Doughty of VA/SC/TN/KT - who was also know as Jeremiah Dutton in VA and SC......... Now we know that these three large Doughty/Doty familys are kin with a common ancestor. We can now pool our research and find that common ancestor.And as other Doughty/Doty take part in the project we will have other Lines that will be able to match up.And no doubt some of the groups will have lines that have proven back to the Old World.........Like the Rev Francis Doughty Line and the Edward Doty/Doten Line, and others.
So folks i could have kept my head busy until death trying to find someone here that had information or burnt tons of gas trying to locate a document proving Joseph Sr was kin to Jeremiah Sr , and John Sr......... But in just two months from the start of our ydna project the answer is gained - no doubt.And i feel more certain then ever we will find his true Line on back.
Doing the ydna sample is easy - about like brushing your teeth - the kit is mailed to your home, you brush the sample from the inside of your cheek and send it in .
We need more than a few good men - ydna only works for male directly in Line - It has to be a Doughty/Doty/D,etc Check out our site : We are big enough to Google : Family Tree DNA Doughty dna And click on our free Yahoo website.....that way you can learn more about the project and visit with the members. Perhaps then you would want to do the ydna sample or let someone know that needs to..........ThanksJoe Doughty,AR
