CENSUS: 1840:Joseph Doty was in Perinton, Monroe County New York. “there was a male child less than 5 yrs. old.this would of been William, One male 20-30 yrs.(My Joseph would of been abt. 24 yrs. in 1840.

Side line note: Joseph & 1st wife apparently moved from New York to Michigan Ca. 1844-1846.This 1st wife apparently died in Michigan Ca. 1848-1850 since she doesn’t show up on the census. On the same census page just a couple households later there is the following: Edwin Dotyage 30 MaleB. N.Y. Betsey Dotyage 70 female B. N.J. Dorcas Dotyage 40 femaleB. N.J. this could be Joseph’s brother (Edwin), Mother (Betsey) and sister (Dorcas).This would mean that Joseph parents lived in New Jersey in 1810 (Dorcas’s approximate birthdate & moved into Ontario County, N.Y. ca. 1812-1818.Joseph’s younger brother Edwin was also born in N.Y.ca. 1820.
