Most of this info is from the Doty/Doten book, with some from Greene Co.PA,Orphan Court records, and Cemetary Records.Unfortunately, I've never found anyone who knows who Anthony the elder's father was.He came to Greene Co, PA about the same time as my G-G-G-grandfather, Stephen Doty, who was also from NJ.But I've never been able to connect the two families.Hope this helps.
