I'm taking a shot in the dark, but here goes. TO make a long story short, I never knew I had any connections to this family until I took the Ancestry.com's DNA test for ethnicity. No surprises as far as what came up, but when I started getting matches from others who took the test, an awful lot of those people have Dotys in their family trees--so many, that I've started thinking there may be a connection on my part, as well. Most seem to be able to trace back to Edward Doty, but a couple go back to a Sarah T. Doty, b. 1452 in England. She married a Nix/Nicks. IS there any connection between Sarah and Edward? I'm still trying to figure out how any Doty connects to my family, but apparently some of them eventually came into Virginia and that may be the connection as nearly all my ancestors are from there, going back well into the 1600s.Any help is appreciated!
