I am seeking genealogical data on the men named Isaac Doty, who lived in the Saratoga District of Albany County, NY in 1779.There were at least two of them and maybe a third.
I am researching a community history of the colonial tenant farmers of the Saratoga District of Albany County NY.The Saratoga District included the present day towns of Stillwater, Saratoga, Northumberland and Moreau in Saratoga County and the towns of Ft. Edward, Greenwich and Easton in Washington County, NY.
I have two men named Isaac Doty on the March 2, 1779 Saratoga District Tax List.Would you please help me sort them out?
1.An Isaac Doty was assessed 50 pounds for his farm and paid 2 pounds and 10 shillings in taxes.(See page 1 of the March 2nd 1779 Saratoga District Tax List.
2.An Isaac Doty was assessed 120 pounds for his farm and paid 6 pounds in taxes.(See page 1 of the March 2nd 1779 Saratoga District Tax List.)
Only one Isaac Doty appears on the October 23, 1779 Saratoga District Tax List.His farm was assessed at $20.00 (Continental dollars).
One Isaac Doty was a Lieut. in the13th Regiment of the Albany County Militia.
An Isaac Doty also served in the First Regiment of the Line.
An Isaac Doty signed the 1778 Saratoga District Petition to New York Governor George Clinton requesting additional troops be assigned to defend the Northern Frontier.(See the Public Papers of Governor George Clinton.)
An Isaac Doty received a Land Patent, which was delivered to James Abeel.(See Balloting Book p. 159)
In 1840 an Isaac Doty, age 81, was living in Granville, Washington County, NY in the home of Levi Doty.(See Revolutionary War Pensioners in the 1840 Census page 56.)
In 1783 an Isaac Doty and three other men leased Ft. George in Charlotte County from the State of New York.(See New York in the Revolution Volume 2 at page 48.)
I was also sent this by one of my correspondents.
"Isaac Doty (page 657), son of Silas Doty and Susanna Bump who was born in Sharon CT in 1759 and moved after the Revolution to North Granville, Washington County, NY, where he lived until after 1832. Doty-Doten Family in America, 1897, page 638). For his ancestry see page 154 of Mayflower Families in Progress - Edward Doty."
Now the question is am I finding a paper trail on a father and son team named Isaac Doty or have I found the paper trail of two cousins named Isaac Doty?Are there merely two or are there three men named Isaac Doty in the Saraoga District.If there are three how are they all related?
Could you please give me a hand?Any biographical data on either or both or all the men named Isaac Doty, their respective wives, and children will be greatly appreciated.
