I am descended from John Doty, Sr. (d.1787, Rowan County, NC) and his wife Hannah Husted. In 1787 they sold land to Moses Doty and Barbara Goss (m. 1787). (This doesn't prove parentage, but it was the customary way of providing for one's children when they married.) Moses and Barbara Doty sold this land in December of 1793 and moved west. In 1789 John, Sr. and Hannah sold land to John, Jr. and his wife (m. 1789) Nancy Goss (Barbara's sister).John, Jr. remained in NC and had two children:Michael (b. 1793)who Catherine Luckenbill and Barbara (b. 1790) who married John Luckenbill.
