It would appear that we are both descended from Elijah DOTY and his wife, Eve TEACHOUT.
Is your Ferris their son, b. 1781, Danbury, Fairfield Co., CT., married 1804, Rachel SQUIRES, and d. Apr. 1860, Oakville, Halton Co., Ontario?
My g-g-g-grandfather, Harvey Doty, was b. Aug. 15, 1793, Dutchess Co., NY, married Aphia AUSTIN, Jan. 27, 1818, and d. Aug. 20, 1862, Genesse Co., MI.Harvey was a War of 1812 veteran and received bounty lands in Michigan.
Ferris and Harvey were brothers.
Do you have any information on their mother, Eve TEACHOUT?I have NOTHING on her and would like to know about that branch.Also, I'd love to know more about Ferris DOTY.Thanks.
