Merritt Everitt Doty is also in my line. My line begins with Matthew Merritt 1758....he was married twice and his daughter Ann is not the daughter of Elizabeth Leonard as the Doty Doten book indicates. His daughter Ann Merritt married Jeremiah Doty. One of their sons, Thomas Doty, married Caroline Smith. One of their sons Thomas Franklin Doty married Ann Meeune. Their son is Merritt Everitt Doty.
