Since my last posting I have found some more information on the Doty/Sigerson family.My interest stems from the marriage of Hazel SIGERSON to Henry Doty.Hazel is a descendant of my ancestor John Bell.I'm in the process of trying totrack down living descendants of John and wife Hettie Ann.
Vesta Cemetery, on the Johnson Co, NE GenWeb site lists Henry Doty as Charles Henry Doty, 1878-1955.There might be a connection to the Doty line.
From 1920 census Henry Doty was b 1878 NY and parents both b in NY.
I tried playing around with 1880 census for your Charles Doty.I even tried "any" Doty born in NE between 1869 and 1879 and nothing.But, you mention his middle name may be Ezra, do you suppose this is your Charles?Prairie, Keokuk Co, IA 1880 census:

This may be your Cora.Do you know when and where she was born?Or, her parents?Foster, McKean Co, PA 1880:
Have you had a chance to obtain a copy of the death certificate for your Charles?It should show the names of his parents.If nothing else it should include his Soc Sec number and you can obtain a copy of the application for his Soc Sec card.He would have filled that out himself and it should shows the names of his parents, place of residence at time of application and other data.
