I have a new email address now and wanted to update this posting.
Looking for more information on Robert DOTY, his children, and his parents.
My husband's great great grandfather was Robert DOTY, born about 1796-1804 in PA. He was in Warren Co., IN for the 1840 and 1850 censuses and in Grant Co., WI for the 1860 census. His wife's first name was Isabel (maiden name unknown; born about 1805-1808 in Ohio).
I have heard that Robert DOTY's parents may have been Robert DOUGHTY (born 25 Jan 1783, Egg Harbor, Gloucester Co., NJ; died 26 Jul 1868, Clermont Co., OH) and Martha Ann LEEDS.
Their children were:
1. William, born about 1831 in Ohio
2. Angeline, born about 1833 in Ohio
3. Adeline, born about 1832 in Ohio; married James C. Truax (born about 1834 in Alabama). He was a miner. They had at least three children: (a) Emily J. Truax, born about 1855 in WI; (b) George R. Truax, born about 1857 in WI; and (c) Amanda M. Truax, born about 1859 in WI.
4. Columbus, born about 1836 in Indiana
5. Martha, born about 1839 in Indiana; Could this be the Martha Jane DOTY who married Edwin WARD in Grant Co., WI on 22 Dec 1859?
6. Newton, born about 1841-1842 in Indiana
7. Malinda, born about 1846 in Indiana, and
8. Philander (my husband's great grandfather), born 17 Sep 1849, Warren Co., IN; died 26 Mar 1937 in Cody, Cherry County, NE.
My husband's great grandfather was Philander DOTY, born 17 Sep 1849. There has been much confusion as to his place of birth since various records/censuses show different information. Philander's 1937 Death Certificate lists Independence, (Warren County,) IN as his birthplace. Between Philander’s 1937 Death Certificate and the 1850 census shown below, I’m saying he was born in Warren Co., IN.
Philander DOTY married Rebecca MOORE (no indication as to her parents' names) on 26 Dec 1869 in Eldena, Lee Co., IL (according to family member; this may be wrong). Rebecca was born July 1847 in Eldena, Lee Co., IL (according to family member; this may be wrong) and died 6 Feb 1931 in Cody, Cherry County, NE) They had five children:
1. Enos DOTY born 1870, Eldena, Lee Co., IL (according to family member; this may be wrong)
2. Levi DOTY born 1872, Des Moines, Polk Co., IA (according to family member; this may be wrong)
3. George DOTY born 1874, Des Moines, Polk Co., IA (according to family member; this may be wrong)
4. Orlando Lon (or Orlando Lonzo) DOTY born 4 Dec 1878, Des Moines, Polk Co., IA (according to family member; this may be wrong); died 30 Sep 1938, Gordon, Sheridan Co., NE -- my husband's grandfather.
5. Mary DOTY born 11 Aug 1882, Des Moines, Polk Co., IA (according to family member; this may be wrong) -- married name Mary FAIR. (She was the informant on Orlando DOTY's 1938 Death Certificate.)
