Thanks Howard! Lucia Thomas Rhodes & I have been working on this particular Joseph & his wife (Margaret????) for almost 30 yrs. & are to the place where we're stumped!If you have any other suggestions, we'd appreciate them.Thanks for the info. Jan Beedle P.S.Did you check out the cemetery that I wrote about in upper state NY, along I-90?It said "Doty Cemetery" & you could see it to the south of the interstate, between Erie, Pa. & Buffalo, N.Y.It was closer to Buffalo.We also found a statue, in a small town along Lake Ontario, out of Youngstown & the Fort Niagara area that was dedicated to those who had fallen in the Civil War.There was a Doty listed on it.
