While I realize that the Doty lineage goes way back, I have opted to start at the end and work back.My father's family was from Boston, MA and the Saranac Lake area in NY. His name was Thomas P. and his brothers were Philip,Charles and John.His sisters were Katherine, Abigail, Helen, Mary and Imogene. His parents were Katherine (nee) Sullivan and James Doty.I know they lived for some time in Saranac Lake NY.He would be 94 years old now. If you recognize any of these names please get in touch with me at my e-mail address. Thanks!
