Could the Thomas in the Wayne County History possibly have been David's son, Thomas?Although Thomas died in 1842 and the Wayne County History was published in 1878, it could still be the same Thomas because the book (or writing) could have been published years later after his death.The following is what I have on Daniel and David that I believe to be true, but just can't prove it.
Please note that David doesn't have any brothers named Thomas.The first Thomas that appears (in my line, anyway)is David's son Thomas, Sr., my GGGr. Grandfather.There could very well have been a cousin named Thomas in another line descending from Edward Doty because they seemed to use the same names over and over then, making it more confusing to us in searching for ancestors.

I would be interested in knowing how I can get a copy of the page from the Wayne County History stating the information about Daniel being David's son that you quoted in your posting.
