I've followed my own line on paper to Frank H. Doty who may be the the son of Pharis. Here is my lineage (with documentation I have): Kenneth William Doty (1927 - 1993)(death certificate)my birth father Frederick Lyman Doty (1894-1978) (birth, WWI draft and death)m Reta Crawford (Frank Henry Doty (abt 1850, Niagara) (marriage) m Amanda Jane Williams who was the widow of Charles Willam Pearce. Frank henry is listed on Mary Ellinor's (Frederick's sister) birth registration as being employed with the Doty Engine works of Toronto and Fredreicks registration lists him as a manufacturer. Frank henry is probably the son of the John you mentioned. I am curious what you ties are - perhaps you can help me fill in some of the holes. Mike.
