Hey, that's makes two of us!I am sure that there is a lot of different Doty families in Mississippi, but all together, I'm sure we're all descended from the same people.My line is as follows...
I am David Alan Stapp (7/1/1985) my dad Jimmy Lee Stapp (b. 10/10/1946)in Oakland, Yalobusha, MS, his mom Robbie Evelyn Doty (6/17/1918) in Quanah, Hardeman County, Texas her father Robert Fulton Doty (3/08/1879) in Water Valley, Yalobusha County, Mississippi.He died 12/24/1965
His father was Thomas Doty.I don't know for sure when he was born, but it was about 1844.
That's as far back as I can go on the Doty's.But I have found another MS Thomas Doty who was born about the same time so it's very possible that the two are the same person. I'm just not sure whether or not they are.
DO you have family tree maker?Because I can send you a family tree gedcom which will explain this a whole lot better.Plus it has more Dotys, like the brothers and sisters of my direct ancestors.Let me know if I can help.I would LOVE TO!
