In the early Autumn of 1871 I received from the late Rev. Silas Ket- 
chum, of Bristol, N. H., a circular stating that he was eolhicting records 
of the family of Doty, and desiring all of that' name to send him all the 
statistics possible, with a view to the history of the family. Ho stated 
also that his mother was Cynthia, daughter of .Kdmond, who was a son of 
Captain Barnabas Doty, who was born in Rochester, Mas&.', in 1740. 

Until that time my interest in such matters had Heei^ but slight ; but 
remembering that I had in my boyhood secured a statement from my 
grandfather, which I still preserved,- 1 sent a copy of it to Mr. Ketchum, 
saying to him that I wouid write to the other relatives for such additions 
as they could make to the record. This led to a considerable coixespond- 
ence with him, as I secured records from a number of relatives, and at my 
suggestion, but with his approval, I interviewed the various families of 
the name in New York City, Brooklyn, Newark and the vicinity. In the 
course of a few months Mr. Ketchum called upon me in New York, and 
stated that I was collecting the statistics faster than he could get them 
from any other source, and in view of his failing health and much needed 
rest from his literary labors, he suggested that I should continue the 
work, he transferring to me such papers as had already come into his 

Without much idea of what this involved I consented, and since that 
time I have collected on my own account such statistics as I could, giving 
such time to its classification as I could spare from a very busy mercantile 
life, mainly in the evenings, holidays and vacations from business. 1 find 
I have written over 5,000 letters, have received about 2.200 replies and in 
the course of my investigations have traversed the counti-y from one end 
to the other. I have searched the records of almost every county of New 
York, New Jersey and Connecticut, and more or less in all the other 
Northern States as far west as Illinois, while I have interviewed members 
of the family in almost every State of the Union. I have made many 
pleasant friends and acquaintances, have met with uniform couitesy from 
Town and County Clerks and State ofTicers everywhere, have had amusing 
adventures, and have seen more of the beautiful scenery and the quiet 
village home life of our country than I could have seen probably in any 
other way. 

I have no apologies to make for the imperfections that may be found in 
this history. I presume all genealogists have found it impo.ssible to get 
replies from any considerable number of those addressed. This failure to 
secure the desired information was at times disheartening; at others it led 
me to make long Journeys and in a personal interview obtain what I could. 


To thosi-, howover, who have furnished such records as they could, in 
mail}' cases of ^rcat value in unraveling the tangled clues of ancestry, I 
can only express my cordial thanks, and assure them that their encour- 
agement and their desire to see the history in print has kept my courage 
good and led me to presevere to that end. The Rev. Silas Ketchum, to 
whom we are indebted for the inception of this work, passed away in 1880, 
and many others who have contributed their information have not lived to 
see the work published. I hold their memory in deep respect. I cannot 
fail here to express my great sense of gratitude to Hon. William T. Davis, 
of Plyuiouth, Mass., who rendered me very valuable service in connection 
with the records and antiquities of that locality, and to the Rev. Irwin P. 
McCurdy, of Harmony Grove, Md., whose great interest and energetic 
researches have enabled him to unearth valuable records in fields that I 
had more than once trodden over. 

In the arrangement of the work I have considered each child of Edward 
Doty, the emigrant, as th6 ancestor of a distinct branch of the fundly. 
Other tlian this, I have endeavored to number the descendants consec- 

In conclusion, I commend this, with ray best wishes, to the family of 
Doty in America. 


Bkooki.yn, N. Y. , 
July, 1897. 

The ancestor of the Doty and Doten families in 
America was Edward Doty, who came with the 
Pilgrims in the Mayflower, landing at Plymouth, 
Mass., in 1620. He is described as a London youth, 
and came in the service of Stephen Hopkins. But 
little further is known of his origin or of his early 


Governor William Bradford, the second Governor of the Plymouth 
Colony, who succeeded to that office upon the death of Governor Carver 
in 1621, was himself one of the most prominent emigrants by the Mayflower. 
His History of Plymouth Plantation, which was completed in 1650, really 
comprises a diary of his life there. 

In the appendix of that history he gives a list of the " Passengers of 
the Mayflower," as follows; 

" The names of those which came over first in ye year 1620, and were 
by the blessing of God the first beginers and (in a sort) the foundjition of 
all the Plantations and Colonies in New England: and their fanilies." 

Then follows the list, in which occurs the family of Stephen Hopkins, 
as follows : 

"Mr, Steven Hopkins & Elizabeth, his wife, and 2 children caled Giles 
and Constanta, a doughter, both by a former wife ; and 2 more by this 
wife, caled Damaris & Oceanus : the last borne at Sea : and 2 servants 
caled Edward Doty and Edward Litster." 

And then he continues (writing in 1050) : 

" And seeing' it hath pleased him to give me to see thirty years 
compleated since these beginiugs : and that the great works of his provi- 
dence are to be observed, I have thought it not unworthy my paines to 
take a vein of the decreasings & increasings of these persons, and such 
change as hath pased over them & theirs, in this thirty years. It may be 
of some use to such as come after ; but however I shall reste in my owne 
benefite. I will therefore take them in order as they lye. " 

And then follows, in the same order as in the original list, each family, 
with its changes, and next the family of Stephen Hopkins, this account : 

"Edward Doty & Edward Litster, the servants of Mr. Hopkins. Lits- 
ter, after he was at liberty went to Virginia & ther dyed. JJut Edward 
Doty by a second wife hath 7. children and both he and they are living." 

The history of the Pilgrims, as stated by Governor Bradford in his 
history of Plymouth Plantation, shows that the Puritans from sundry 
towns and villages in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, and some of York- 
shire, to escape inconveniences and persecutions, removed about IGOS-ii to 
the Low Coimtries. There came also some from London and other parts. 
They settled first at Amsterdam, but in a year removed to Leyden. where 
they lived till 1G20. 

About the first of August of that year, after many delays, thoy sailed to 
Southampton, and on the t5th the Mayflower and Spe<'(lweil sailed from 
that port to the New World with 120 passengers, some of whom had luit 
just joined the company. Disasters to the Speedwell compelled a return 


of both vessels to Plymouth, where she was abandoned and some of the 
passengers gave ui) tiie voyage. IJut on the 6th of September, the May- 
flower, with the remaining 102 passengers, finally sailed, and after a 
stormy voyage of sixty-five days dropped anchor in Cape Cod harbor on 
the 11th of November following. 

Under that date Mourt's "Relation" states: 

" This day before we came to harbour, observing some not well affected 
to unity and concord, but gave some appearance of faction, it was thought 
good there should be an association and agreement, that we should com- 
bine together in one body, and to submit to such government and gover- 
nor.s as we should, by common consent, agree to make and choose, and set 
our hands to this that follows, word for word." 

Bradford, writing of the same, says it was "occasioned partly by y^ 
discontented & mutinous speeches that some of the strangers amongst 
them had let fall from them in y*^ ship. That when they came ashore they 
would use their own libertie : " etc. 
The agreement or compact is as follows : 

"In y name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwriten, the 
loyall subjects of our dread soveraigne Lord, King James, by y« grace of 
God, of Great 15ritaine, Franc, & Ireland king, defender of y'" faith. &c., 
haveing undertaken, for y*' glorie of God, and advancemente of y" Chris- 
tian faith, and honour of our king & countrie, a voyage to plant ye first 
colonie in y*^ Northerne pai-ts of Virginia, doe by these presents solemnly 
<t rautualy in y'' presence of God, and one of another, covenant & combine 
our selves togeathor into a civill body politick, for our better ordering & 
preservation & furtherance of y« ends aforesaid : and by vertue hearof to 
enacte, constitute, and frame such just & equall 1 iwes, ordinances, acts, 
constitutions, & offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meete 
& convenient for y" generall good of y*" Colonie. unto which we promise 
all due submission and obedience. 

" In witnes whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cape 
('odd J'" 11. of November, in y<-' year of y** raigne of our soveraigne lord, 
King Jamea, of England, France, & Ireland j^ eighteenth, and of Scotland 
y" fiftie fourth. An" : Dom. 1G20." 

To this compact were signed the names of each male member of the 
company, and among them that of Edward Doty. 

Stephen llojikins. with his family and servants, wore among those who 
joined the i)arty of emigrants at Southampton on their arrival from Ley- 
den, lie was a taimer or leather maker by trade and the term servant 
I>robably indicates a workman or, in this case, an apprentice. 

Tliey had been residents of London, and in many ways it is shown that 
these were not considered as being of the same mind and spirit as the 
others, who were .so clo.sely knit together by their long residenoe in Ley- 
deu. It is probable that the newcomers were actuated V»y a greater spirit 
of adventure in emigrating to the New World, and that they were less ready 
to acknowledge tlie authority of the Governor of the new Colony who 
seems to have already been chosen, while it is certain that some at least 


were not in full sympathy with the religious ideas and the motives that 
guided the actions of the leaders. 

Disaffection with the general interests of the party had appear.-d during 
the voyage, sufficient to create susiiicion, and it was probably owing to 
this that the famous compact was drawn up. 

Edward Dotey was invited to sign this compact on board the Mayflower 
after its arrival in Cape Cod Harbor and from this time he was treated 
to all intents and purposes as one of the company, receiving the same 
allotment of land and stores as all other single men. From this it would 
seem as if he had at this time reached his majority, though he probui>ly 
still owed some service to Stephen Hopkins. It has been assumed, how- 
ever, inasmuch as he is spoken of as a youth, that he had now reached his 
21st year, and this is the only indication that we have of the date of his 

The Mayflower arrived at Cape Cod on the 11th of November (O. S.), 
1C20, and the first duty of the emigrants was the necessity of looking for 
a suitable place of habitation in this new country. They had bought 
"a large shalop with them out of England," but the boat had i^een so 
much bruised and shattered by the rough weather on the voyage that it 
was found it would take some days to properly repair it. Whereupon a 
few volunteered to go by land, making such discoveries as they could, 
while the shallop was being put in order. " It was conceived ther might 
be some danger in ye attempte, yet seeing them resolute, they were per- 
mited to goe, being 16. of them well armed, under ye conduct of Captain 
Standish," to whom was joined for advice and counsel William IJradford, 
Stephen Hopkins and Edward Tilley. It is probable that Edward Doty 
was one of this party. They started on the 15th November and were 
gone several days, marching along by the side of the sea. A few Indians 
whom they met ran away from them and they found some Indian corn, 
which had been buried probably for future use, which they bon.' back to 
the ship, having never seen any such before. 

After this, the shallop being ready, a party of thirty sailed to the same 
neighborhood, where it had been thought a suitable harbor might bo 
found. They discovered some deserted houses of the Indians and much 
corn and beans, which they carried away and which served them for seed 
the next spring ; but the harbor was found unsatisfactory. 

The month of November being thus spent, and "much foule weather 
falling in, the 6. of Desemr. they sent out their shallop agalne with 10. of 
their principall men & some sea men upon further di.scovery." 

The account appended is from Mourt's "Relation " (now recognized as 
a Journal by Geo. Morton, one of the pilgrims, and identical in many parts 
with Governor William Bradford's history). 

" Wednesday, the sixt of December ()G20), it was resolved our discov- 
ers should set forth, for the day before was too fowle weather, and so 
they did, though it was well ore the day ere all things could be readie. 
So ten of our men were appointed who were of themselves willing to un- 
dertake it, to wit, Captaine Standish, INIaister Carver, William Bradford, 
Edward Winsloe, John Tilley, Edward Tilley, John Houland, and throe of 



London. Richard Warren, Steeuen Hopkins, and Edward Dotte and two 
of our Soa-nit'n, John Alderton, and Thomas English, of the Ships Com- 
pany there went two of the Masters Mates, Master Clarke, and Master 
Copin. tiie Ma,ster Gunner and three Saylers." 

The narration of which discovery follows, penned by one of the Com- 
pany. (Un<loubtedly Governor William Bradford, as it is identical with 
the account in his history.) 

The party above is the famous party that .'Started out in the shallop of 
the Mayllowor on the voyage of discovery. Starting on the Gth December 
(our lOth), tht^ w(!ather being very cold and hard, and the sea rough, they 
had great dilFiculty lirst in launching the shallop and next in weather- 
ing a sandy point, now known as Long Point, inside wluch they laj-. 
Two of them were very sick and Edward Tilley nearly swooned with the 
cold. In spite of these hardships they continued, partly by sea and partly 
by land, for several days, encountering and beating off Indians, discover- 
ing their stores of corn, their habitations and graves, until after many 
dangers and hairbreadth escapes, late on P^'riday night, 8th December, in 
the storm, they found a refuge on what is now known as Clark's Island, in 
Plymouth harbor. Here they rendezvoused all day of Saturday, 9th, and 
rested Sunday. On Jloiiday, 11th December (our 21st December, " Fore- 
fathers' Day "). they sounded the harbor, found it a good harbor for the 
shipping, and sailed for the mainland, landing on Plymouth Rock. Then 
" we marched also into the Land, and found divers come fields, and little 
running brookes, a i)lace very good for scituation, so we returned to our 
Ship again with good newes to the rest of our people, which did much com- 
fort their hearts." 

In " Thatt-her's History of Plymouth," p. I>G0, it is related of this jour- 
ney : 

" Clark's Island ( Plynioutli liarboi) received its name from Clark, the 
Miuster's naate of the ^[ayllower, who first took possession of it Dec. 8, 
l(i20. There is a tradition that Edward Dotey, a young man, attempted to 
fh-st leai>on th«^ island, but was severely checked for his forwardness, that 
Clark might laud and have the honor of giving his name to the island, 
whicli it .still retains. Jly authoiity for this tradition is Mr. Joseph Lucas, 
wiiose father was great-grandson of Edward Dotey." 

A few days later the ^Iayllowerdrop])ed her anchor in Plymoutli harbor, 
and the wlu)le party, which by Bradford's account numbered 102 jiersons, 
laniled and commenced the settlement of th(; town. It is related that 
Thurwlay, the 28th of December (Jan. 19th, 1G21. by our count): 

"So in the afternoone we went to measure out the grounds, and first. 
We tooke notice iiow many Families they were, willing all single men that 
had no wives to joyne with some K'amilie as they thought lii, that so we 
might build fewer, which was done, and wo reduced them to 19 
Families." Each person was allotted half a pole in breadth and three in 
length, and lots were cast for position. (These plots were on the north 
and south siiles of what is now known as lieyden street, Plymouth.) 

In this allotment Edward Dot(\v undoubtedly uiutod with the family of 
Stephen llopUins, and eonlimied thus till the fuitli.T allotment of land in 


1624. The story of this first winter of the settlers, strangers upon this 
most inhospitable coast, overcome by sicliness and exposure, is pathetic- 
ally told by Bradford. Within two or three months one-half of their com- 
pany died, it being the depth of winter and they wanting houses and other 
comforts. They were attacked by scurvy and other diseases, caused by 
their long voyage and poor condition, so that there died sometimes two or 
three in a day. In the time of their greatest distress there were but six or 
seven sound persons to wait upon the others and perform the necessarj- 
duties for the sick. The seamen on the vessel fared almost as badly, so 
that the Mayflower was detained several months from returning. To add 
to their distress, the house which had been built as a general rendezvous 
and for the common use, and to which many of their goods had been re- 
moved, was accidentally burned on the 14th January, and increased their 

Edward Dotey unquestionably bore his part in the sufferings of this try- 
ing season, but his young and rugged constitution carried him safely 
through, and the spring found him working with his master in the fields or 
upon the houses which It was found necessary to erect and which were at 
first used largely in common by the settlers. The first direct allusion to 
him that we find in the records at this time is not a complimentary one. 
But it must be borne in mind that these, the records of the police court of 
the time, exaggerate the importance of these peccadilloes of the young. 
It is under the date of 1G21, June 18, that we find this item in " A Chron- 
ological History of New England," by Thomas Prince, M. A., a jounial 
carefully compiled from Bradford's History and the various records of 
towns and churches, and published about 1712. 

"The second offence is the first duel fought in New England, upon a 
challenge of single combat with sword and dagger between Edward Doty 
and Edward Leister, servants of Mr. Hopkins, both being wounded, the 
one in the hand, the other in the thigh, they are adjudged by the whole 
company to have their head and feet tied together, and so to be for twen- 
ty-four hours, without meat or drink ; which is begun to be inflicted, but 
within an hour, because of their great pains, at their own and their mas- 
ter's humble request, upon promise of better carriage, they are released by 
the Governor." 

The second offence this is called. The first had been m March previous, 
when John Billington, " who came onboard at London," was charged with 
" contempt of the Captain's lawful command with opprobrious speeches." 
He was adjudged to much the same punishment, but " craving pardon & 
being first offence he is forgiven." 

In these early days of the Colony these were unquestionably very grave 
offences against the peace and against the authority of the Governor, and 
were properly met with severity of punishment, the more readily perliaps as 
the offenders were in humble position and among those who had joined the 
company at London and had thus from the first been viewed with suspi- 
cion by the pilgrims from Leyden. 

But this action of our ancestor, coupled with other subsequent but less 
serious offences against the peace, and the further fact of a generally litigi- 


ous if not (}uarrelsoine nature, as devolopeil by the many actions before the 
General Court in wliich lie appears as defendant or plaintiff, seem to indi- 
cate the possession of a warmer blood and quicker temper than those by 
whom lie was surrounded, and points to otiier than English origin. 

An apprentice or servant in the family of a London tanner, probably for 
seven years before the emigration to America, there is still little to deter- 
mine the place of Edward Doty's birth. The name is a distinct one. It is 
not found in England either at the present day or among English names of 
till' time in the various works devoted to the names of families and their 
histories. It does not seem to have had any other representative in the 
early emigration. " Doughtys " and " Dottens " of English origin there 
were in that day: emigrants of these names settled in the same localities, 
but in no case is there apparent a single incident or connection that would 
indicate an origin similar to that of the Doty family. 

It may be noted here that the earliest spelling and pronunciation of the 
name seems to have been " Doty." This is thc^ spelling as given by Gov- 
ernor Bradford, while " Mourt's Relation " gives it as " Dotte." The sec- 
ond generation at Plj'mouth are frequently called " Doten," or sometimes 
"Doton" and " Dotin " — with this exception, however, that each of the 
sons who left Plymouth for points inland returned to the spelling " Doty." 
Thus .Joseph Doty at Rochester, Samuel Doty in New Jersey, and Isaac 
Doty on Long Island, each of whose descendants have retained this spell- 
ing. The other sons, Edward and John Doty at Plymouth and Thomas 
Doty on Cape Cod, were sometimes called " Doten," but then again their 
dt'seendants who have left the seacoast have almost invariably returned to 
the original " Doty." 

This leads to the belief that the spelling of the name "Doten" has 
been the result of a provincial pronunciation characteristic of the locality 
at the time, a belief which is strengthened bj" the fact that the distinctly 
English name of " Doughtj* " was at the same period in the same locality 
pronounced " Doughten," and will be found so written in the records of 
Scituate, Mass. 

Baylie, in his " Chronich's of Plymouth," voL 1, p. 26-5, says: "The 
nani'-s of Bompasse, De La Noye and Doten are unquestionably of French 
origin. The persons who originally bore them were probably admitted 
into the l^lymouth Company from amongst the French Protestants resi- 
di-nt at Li*ydi'n. Tliey liav(> be»m changed by English pronunciation and 
usage into Bumpu.s, Bump, Delano and Doty." 

However this may be as to the names and De La Noyc, we 
know that Edward Doty was not resident at Leyden and that the name 
was prol>ahly originally " Doty," rather than " Doten." 

But a study of his char.icter, from what we know of his actions, would 
furnish murh more reasonabh; ground for belief that he may have had a 
Fn-uch origin. 

Numerous suggestions have been made from various and valued soui-ces 
as to this origin, based in most cases on ingenious deductions from the 
names of French families or localities, but in the absence of more definite 



information this remains a matter of speculation entirely, iinrolieved by 
a single fact upon wliich we may base an opinion. 

It should be noted also in this connection that several facts may bo 
taken as pointing to a possible German origin of our name. A German, 
attracted by the name Doty upon a busiuess sign, declared that the name 
had been the original name of his family ; that his great grandfather was 
a Lutheran minister living about 1763 at Aultweile, about nine miles from 
Frankfort, Germany, of the name of " Dotee," and had a family there, 
which he had always understood to be of German origin. 

It is to be hoped that the researches now being made under the auspices 
of the New England Genealogical and Historical Society in London by 
Mr. Henry C. Waters may result in some clue to further and more reliable 

In the spring of 1024 the people requested the Governor to have some 
land "by continuance and not by yeaily lot as before," which request was 
granted, and to every person was given one acre of land, to them and 
theirs, as near the town as might be, that they might keep close together 
for greater defence and safety, and no more till the seven years expired 
for which all had covenanted together. The tract of land which Edward 
Doty received in this division is located by Mr William T. Davis in his 
" Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth," pages 314-31G, as having been 
located on what is now known as Watson's Hill. This land, at his death 
and the division of his estate, fell to his sou lildward Doty, who was 
drowned in Plymouth harbor 1690. After his death the shares of the 
other children were bought by his son-in-law. Justice James Warren, 
from whom title has passed to its present owners. 

This division is entered on the ' ' Records of the Colony of New Ply- 
mouth — Deeds — Vol. 1," as follows, it being the second entry in this first 
volume of deeds : 

" The falles of their grounds which came first ouer in the May-Floure, 
according as their lotes were cast — 1623." " Tliese lye one the South side 
of the brooke to the woodward opposite to the former

Samuel Juneor 3 
these containe 16 akers besides Hobamak's ground which lyeth betweene 
Joe. Howlands & Hobkinses." 

It is quite certain from the allotment of the other plots adjoining the 
above and opposite to it to the remaining members of the original emi- 
grants, which precede or follow the above entry in the book of deeds, that 
the plot allotted to Edward Doty was one of those marked "Edward" in 
the above list, the balance of the name ou the record having been either 
accidentally torn or perhaps omitted. The other ' ' Edward " was prolmbly 
Edward List<^r, and they were allotted plots next to their master, Stephen 
Hopkins, and this is corroborated by the extract above from the " Ancient 



Liindmarks of Plymouth." It is probable that this first plot never 
Iiiussed out of tilt' possession of Edward Doty during his lifetime, though • 
ho soon reinovod olsfwhero, but at his death passed to his son Edward 
and to his chiMren, as noted. 

The next allotment of lands was in the Spring of 1627, and is noted 
thus in I'rineo's Chronology : " To make all easy, we take every head of 
a family, with every young man of age and prudence, both of th(; first 
eoniei-s, and those who have since arrived, into partnership with us. 
Every single freeman to have a single share. Each father to have leave 
to purchase a share for each of his family. Each share is allotted twenty 
acres of tillable land, besides the single acres with the gardens and home- 
steads they had before." The " single acres" referred to those allotted 
in 1(»2;} 4. No division of the live stock was made at the same time. In 
this division of " lotts " and property, made after careful consideration by 
the Governor and Council, each single man united with some head of a 
family in order that there might be as few families as possible, and 
p]dward Doty was attached to the family of John Howland. In the 
record the name is written " Edward DoUon," which is an error of the 
copyist or of the recorder, as the name of Dolton does not appear else- 
where in the records of the Colony. The entry in the Book of Deeds, 
reads : " The fourth lot fell to John Howland & his company joyned to 
him his wife

To this lot fall one of tlie 4 heyfers came in the Jacob, Called Raghorne." 
Tlie entries in the records so far are in the handwriting of Governor 
Bradford, Imt the difTerent vohimes of records are in the handwriting of 
many different individuals besides Governor Bradford, there being that of 
Governor Edward Wiuslow and of the Secretaries of the Colony, Messrs. 
Nathaniel Souther, Nathaniel Morton, Nathaniel Clarke and Samuel 
Sprague. I-'.ach of these has not simi)ly a penmanship different from the 
others, l)ut eacii has a spelling of his own, especially of proper names. 

It must lie remembered that the Julian method of computing time, com- 
monly known as tlie "Old Style," was in use in England and its depen- 
dencies. The legal year commenced on Conception day, the 25th of- 
Mareh. The aiMition of ten days will reduce it to our present or " New 
Style." Where the months were distinguished by numbers the first month 
was Mareh, tli(> .second April, etc.

According to " an order of the Court heldth<> 2d of January in the .seav- 
enth yeare of the raine of o^" Soveraigne lord Charles, by the grace of God 
King," etc. (1G31-2), "the persons heereunder inonconed were rated for 
publike use by tbe Gov»"- Mr. Will. Bradford (and his assistants), Capt. 
Miles Standish, Joh: Alden, Joh. IIowlai)d, John Done, Stephen Hopkins, 
Will Gilson, Sam. Fuller, Senior, John Genny, Godbert Godbertson, & 
Jonathan Brewster, to be brought in by each pson as they are heere under 
written, rated in Corne at VI*^- p bushell." In thelistthat followsEdward 
Dowty is rated £01 .07ss: OOd: and this rate is about the same as those 
above named, but not so large as that of Edward Winslow, whose rate is 
£2., 05s., OOd., or that of Isaack Allerton at £3. lis. OOd. Many others 
in the list are rated lower, as 18s., los. , and some as low as 9s. This 
would seem to indicate that by this time, January, 1032, he had begun to 
accumulate some property, and that he must have been industrious, capa- 
ble and successful to have rated so high. 

In the list of ' ' The Names of the Freemen of the Incorporacon of Ply- 
moth in New England, An. 1633," appears "Edward Dowty." At a Court 
held January 1st, 1632 3, by Bradford, Governor, "An action tryed 
between John Washburne, plaintiffe, and Edw. Dowty, defendant, about 
an hog the defendant had taken wrongfully from the plaintiffe, as hee 
alledged ; but the Jewry, Rob* Heeks being foreman, fownd the plaintiffe 
faulty & acquitted the defendant. According to this verdict judgem*. pro- 
nounced ag* the plaintiffe. 

"Joseph Rogers complayned in Court of Edward Dowty for non-pform- 
anee of cov^s in a contract between them wherein six pigges of five weekes 
old were due unto the plaintiffe. The case being heard, the defendant was 
cast in four bushels of Corne. 

' ' Will Beunet complained of Edward Dowty for divers injuries vf^'^ was 
referred to the Cowncell to be ended by them." 

"The Acts of the Cowncell, Jan. 3d, 1632-3. 

" William Bennet complayned of Edw. Dowty to have d(>alt fraudulently 
wtii him about a flich of bacon he was to haue at the rate of three pounds 
of beaver, w^'^ being viewed was esteemed but at haife the value & to be 
made good in beaver or so much bacon as Robt Heekes and Francs Eaton 
should thinke meete betweene man & man. 

" The said plaintiffe having sold the defend' a pcell of boards for beaver 
demanded pmt pay. The matter being heard, it was determined that 1 he 
deft should pay him so much bacon in liand as the fores^aid Hob' and 
Francs should value to be worth three pounds of beaver, and tiie remain- 
der to be paid by the said Edw. at or before the first of Marcli next .'usuing 
to Richard Church of Plymouth aforesaid, being the assign.' of the said 



Will Ui'iiuot ; and for default of paym' upou the desire of the said Willi: 
or his assigne to haiie order to straine. 

•• Whereas the said Will had employed the serv* of the said Edward one 
raoneth in sawing of boards w"^ Edw. Shaw, it was ordered he should allow 
hira so nuu'h for his serv* as the said Edw had w^^'' wrought w^^ him, and 
not to bo p'' for a nioneth of dales, being the weather was very unseason- 
able by reason of raitie &c, 

•• At a Court hold the iivsi of April, 103:5. 

"An aocon of slander tryod between WilliamBonnet & Edward Dowty of 
New Plymouth ; the said Will being plaintiffe accused the said Edward to 
have called hira rogue, w^i' being proved by divers testimonies, the Jewry, 
Josuah Pratt being foreman, found the deff to bo guilty & amerced him in 
fifty shilling fine whereof thirty to goe to the plaintiffe and twenty to or 
soveraigne lord the King, and gauo the said Edward Dowty eight moneths 
day of paym*- " 

The above entries of the years 1032 and 1033 appear to bo in the manu- 
script on tiio record of Governor Eilward Winslow, and it will be noted 
that he uniformly spells the name Edward Dowtj'. There is no more sig- 
nificance to be given to this spelling, however, than to the names of Kob^^ 
lleekes, John Done and John Genny, representatives of the "Hicks," 
" Doane" and " Jenny " families, as well as many similar misspellings of 
names of other families in the records. 

"At a Generall Court hold 2d Jany, 1(583 -4.'' (Winslow still being 
Gov«!rnor. ) 

" It was ordered, that whereas John Smith, being in great extremity 
formerly, to bo freed of the same bound himselfe as an aprirentice to Ed- 
war<l Dowty for the torme of ten yeares, uppon the peticon of the said 
John the Court toke the matter into hearing, and finding the said Edw: 
had disbursed but little for him, freed the said John from his cov"^ of ten 
yearos bond him to make up the time he had already served the said Ed- 
ward the full terme of Hue yeares ; and at the end thereof, the said Edward 
to giuo him dowble appall, & so be froe of each other.

•• Kdward Dowty & Josias Cooke were amerced in 6^9 VIII'^ p man for

drew bloud from the said Josias, the said Edward was awarded to glue 
him 3^* i^ for the same, w*'' to be p'l w"'in one nioneth, or levied at the 
I»loasure of the govi"." 

" Edward Dowty" was again rated Jan. 2d, 1034, in the list at £00. 18**. 

" At a Court before the Gou^nor & A.ssistanco hold (he 28'!^ March 1034. 
(Princi? was now Governor.) 

" Edw. Dowtle, plaintife, havoiiig arosted Francis Sprage in an accon of

It i.s futorod on tlio record :

That Mr. Prenee, Joseph Rogers, Tho. Cushnian, & Edw. Dovvty haue 
the ground upon Jones his river, where Mr. Prenee & Mr. Allerton mowed 
last year. 

" At a Court of Assistants held 103G, Aug. 22. Peter Talbott, the late 
serv* of Edwd Dowty having a proporcon of land due unto him by the ser- 
vice of his ml' as appeareth by indenture, hath made over his right to 
James Skiffe, for & in consideracon of six bushels of corne. " 

In the transfer of this land, which was made at the Court held July G, 
1637, the above facts are recited, but the name is written ' ' Edward 

" Octo 5. 1636. Joseph Beedle & Edw. Dowty, having eutred crosse 
accons against each other, their matters being raw & impfct, were by the 
Court referred to the arbitracon of Richard Church, Josuah Prat, & 
Nicholas Snow & they to stand to such order the said arbitrators should 
sett downe." 

"The Names of the Freemen" are given again, March 7, 1G36-7, 
Bradford being now Governoi', and among them Edward Dotey. 

John Banges and Edward Dotey are this j'ear, 1G37, to have " hej' 
ground at Saggaquash." 

" 1636-7 March 7. At a Court of Assistants. Georg Clarke com- 
playnes against Edward Doty in an action vpon the case for to the damn- 
age of XII^ for a deceitful bargaine made w^i^ him for a lot of land. 
The Court ordered it by consent of both pties, that the said Edward 
Dotey shall either repay to the said George Clarke the eight pounds he 
hath receiued for the said lot in pt of payment, vpon the last day of 
Nouember next or els vpon the payment of four pounds more vnto 
the said Edward Dotey by the said George Clarke ; the same day the 
said Edward Dotey shall a<5sure the said lot of land vnto the said Georg 
Clarke and his assignes for euer." 

" 1637 Octo 2c^ Georg Clarke complaynes ags* Edward Dotey in an 
action vpon the case for denying him the liberty to hold land for the 
terme he had taken y*^ for, to the damage of XX-*^. The juiy found for 
pltiff and assessed XX* damnage and tho charges of the Court. Execu- 
con granted. " 

This matter does not seem to have ended there, for at the same session 
of the Court Kid ward Dotey was convicted of assault and battery on George 
Clarke and assessed 12d. damages and the costs of Court. And on the 
6th March following, either for the same offence or a new one, "Edward 
Dotey was fined Xs. for breaking his ma<i»'^ peace in assaulting George 
Clarke." This appears to have settled the dilTiculty, for we find no fur- 
ther mention of it, and it maybe well to note here that " George Clarke " 
was apparently not related to the family of Faith Clark whom Edward 
Doty had married. Under date of 1637, July 12th, tho following deed 
appears in the first volume of deeds recorded in the Colony. Wo enter 
it here at length, as it was one of the earliest deeds recorded, or, at 



least, of those which have been preserved. It is of interest, as showing 
that with some changes of orthography the same cumbrous forms and 
terms which existed two hundred and fifty years ago arc still in vogue 
in conveyances of real estat<^ : 

" The XII"' of July Anno Dfu 1037. Edward Dotey & Richard Derby.

Edward Dotey his '~> marke" 
This deed, like many others, was signed upon the record book, It 
being apparently the original deed and not a copy. Richard Derby .signs 
his name, but Edward Doty in this, as in every other papoi- so far found, 
signs by mark only, his mark on this deed being in character similar to 

Though this deed appears properly signed upon the record, it was 
apparently afterward cancelled, or the property reconveyed to Edward 
Doty, for we find under date of " Octo. 1, 1638. At a Court of Assist- 
ants. Whereas sixtie acres of lande were graunted to Edward Dotey, 
lying at a pond neere Namassacutt Payth, vpon report that he had sould 
his house and land at Heigh Cliffe to Mr. Richard Derby, w'' bargaine is 
now relinquished, the said Edward Dotey doth also relinquish the said 
grant. And the Court hath graunted the said Edward Dotey six aeress of 
meadow there, to lye to his house at Heigh Cliffe, and all that poell of 
vpland lying before the said meddow, and to begin at the esterly end at 
the swampe, ranging vp westerly to another swampe, and to extend to 
Namascutt Path, southward, saucing that the said Edward shall allow a 
payth for carriages as shalbe thought meet to be layed forth." 

The foregoing documents, with others to follow, establish the fact that 
Edward Doty was a considerable owner of land at "Heigh Cliffe," or 
" Skeart Hfll," a locality still known by that name, being in the extreme 
north of the town, bordering on Kingston. 

Here, too, or perhaps in the adjoining plain called "Plain Dealing," he 
lived, and continued to live probably until his death, for though, as 
appears by records elsewhere and by his will, he was a large purchaser at 
Yarmouth, at Cohasset, or Dartmouth, and other places, it does not 
appear that he ever changed his residence from the High Cliff after he 
established it there, which wasproVjably as early as 163r). 

At a Court held Cth August, 1037, John Derby was granted throe score 
acres laud at Mount's Hill, and Edward Dotey to have the like there also, 
both plots subject to the approval of Mr. Edward Winslow and Mr. .lolm 

"4th Dec. 1637. Edward Dotey and Tristram Clarke his father-in-law 
are to take Josiah Winslow, Nathaniel Sowther, and Josuah Pratt and to 
view a pcell of land by Mr. John Derbies grauut at Mounts Hill, that vpon 


their report thereof to the Gounour and Assistants they may haiie i)cells 
thereof graunted thom." 

"5th February 1087-8. Fourty acrees of lands are graunted vnto 
Thurston Clarke, and a garden place lying at the Southwest end of 
Derby's Pond, on the South side of Monts Hill Chase." 

" Threescore acrees of lands are graunted vnto Edward Dotey, and a 
garden place lying at the weptorne end of Derby's pond." This was prob- 
ably tlie plot relinquished 1st October, 1638, in the record already given. 

" 2d Jan'y, 1G37-8. Edward Dotey coniplaines against John Holmes,

31st Aug., 1638 (Thomas Prence still Governor), ai)pearsthe following: 
" Memorand. That whereas William Snow was lately brought ouer out

j'eares as appeares by his indenture, beareing date the XX^'' of Februar. 
1637 (1637 8) now the said Richard Derby hath assigned ouer the said 
Willm Snow vnto Edward Dotey, to serue him the residue of the said 
terme of fiue yeares, and two yeares longer, that is to say, for the terme 
of seuen yeares from the XXtii day of October next ensuing vnto the end 
of the terme of seuen yeares next ensuinge, the said Edward pformeing 
such condicons as on his pt are to be pformed, and shall in the end of the 
said terme, pay the said William Snow on liuely cow calf of two months 
old, w"' two suits of apparell, and fynd him meate, drink & apparell dur-

The following item is the first that appears on the records in the ehi- 
rogra[)hy of ^Ir. Nathaniel Morton, Secretary of the Colony, and it 
will be noted that now the name is again spelled Doty. 

" New Plimouth this 7th of December 1647. Whereas Samuell Cuth- 
Ibert complaineth against Edward Doty for y* hee the said Edward Doty

of Samuel Cuthbert and Edward Doty : the deed quaintly specifles all the 
boards and shelves*, all the doors and the locks upon them in the house, 
and the fruit trees in the orchard, and shows by this time at least the in- 
troduction of these luxuries of civilization into the colony.

7th Aug., 1()5U — Edward Doty was ordered to pay a bushel of Indian 
corn to each, Edward Gray and Samuell Cutbert for damage done by his 
calves and other cattle in their corn. 

This conjplet<>8 the references to Edward Doty in the " Court orders," 
and "Judicial acts " of the colony, but seems to establish the fact of his 
residence up to this time, at least (1050), at the High Cliff, or possibly at 
" Plain Dealing," which is still nearer the line of Kingston. 


It was at this time, it will be remembered, that Governor Bradford, in 
the Appendix to his history recounting the families of the original settlers, 
says that " Edward Doty by a second wife hath 7 children, and both ho 
and they are living." From other sources we know that in 10;")2 lie was 
one of the purchasers of Dartmouth, and that he made other purchases of 
lands elsewhere. 

His death occurred at Plymouth August 28, 1G05. His will is dated 
there three months earlier, and as it states him then sick it is probaljje 
that his sickness continued altogether many months. His will,'whicii is 
as follows, is signed by his mark, and the name receives a new spelling 
from the scrivener, " Dotten," this being the only occasion where it is 

" May the 20th 1655. 

" In the name of God, Amen. 

' ' Know all men by these Presents, to whom it may concerne, that I

The foregoing is a true copy from Plymouth Colony Record of Wills, 
Book 2, pages 15 and 16. 

If the household utensils and fanning implements in this inventory 
seem to the present generation hardly worth the mentioning in a will, it 
must be remembered that at that day chairs were a luxury, not alone in 
New England, but in the largest part of the civilized world, and that 
many conveniences which we now esteem among the necessaries of life 
were then unknown. The inventory indicates that Edward Doty was the 
possessor of a comfortable homestead, well furnished for the needs of his 

Coaksett, named in the will, is the present Dartmouth, in Bristol 
County, Mass. Punckquesett was the Indian name for the southern 
portion of the present town of Tiverton, in Rhode Island. 

It has been a matter of great interest to the writer during the many 
years spent in collecting the materials for this history, to form such idea 
of the life and character of our ancestor as was afforded by a study of the 
public records and the early histoiy of the Plymouth Colonj'. Several 
visits to the town of Plymouth, a perusal of the records there in manu- 
script, not only of the Colony, but those as well of the county and town ; 


the aid of some of its citizens who have for years made these records their 
study, and tiiereby Itecomo familiar with their various details; an inspec- 
tion of the different localities mentioned and interviews with many of the 
older residents, with their interesting relics of chinaware and furniture 
of the early days, and still more interesting traditions \yhich have found 
place in none of the printed histories; all these have aided him more or 
less. With these associations Plymouth has been, to him at least, a 
delightful place to visit. Tlie rock on which that boat load of pilgrims 
who " set out to discover" first landed ; the old "Leyden street," where 
the first houses were located; the liill where so many were buried during 
those first three months of exposure and suffering; Pilgrim Hall, with its 
relics of " the first comers," whose names are wrought in the iron that 
fences the Plymouth Kock ; the stately monument, whose graceful figures 
and tall shaft now cover probably a sjiot where Edward Doty mowed the 
grass two centuries and a half since ; aye, even the names upon some 
prominent signboards of business houses, assuming here the spelling 
" Doten " and having many worthy representatives in the town and 
vicinity, all conspire to make it full of interest. The oldest house in Ply- 
mouth is "the Doten House," though not now occupied by a family of 
the name ; the principal wharf is the Doten Wharf, and in eveiy part of 
this and the adjoining towns comfortable mansions and farms are lield by 
some of the name. 

The study of these public records and early history of the Colony, 
taken in connection with the history of the time, the lives of his associates 
and neighbors, and an inspection of the locality and its surroundings, give 
the following impression of our ancestor ; A tall and well built 
man, with a strong constitution, a frame well knit together, and arms and 
limbs evidently used to hard work, active, alert and full of life, with per- 
haps a surplus of energj^; without school education and yet with an 
active mind and that knowledge that comes quickly to a close observer 
from experience; of a kind nature and good intentions, but tenacious of 
his own to an extent at least of demanding his full rights, and obstinate 
In maintaining them. Probably when he landed, a youth, at Plymouth, 
he did not possess any of the religious feeling which actuated the leading 
spirits among the Pilgrims, but came soon to admire the infiexible honesty 
of their dealings and the industrj', integrity and morality of their lives. 
Periuips his early associations in the family of the "good John How- 
land " helped to curl> his unruly spirit. At anj' rate, from this time on 
liis life appears to iiave been circumspect, and beseems to have given his 
energies to tiie proper support of his increasing family, and with much 
thrift, to the amassing of property and lands. Many of the suits at law 
whl«."h we liave noted were evidently brought in no unfriendly spirit, 
but rather to settle by arbitration disputed claims. If our assumption 
of his birth in l.WJ is correct, he died in his fifty-sixth year, and it is 
more than probable that the exposure and hardship of the landing and 
the first Winter, which only his rugged constitution enabled him to 
with.stand, at last shortened his life. 


Governor Bradford's statement in the a[)pendix to his history, that in 
1650 " Edward Dotey by a second wife hath 7 children and both he and 
they are living," though unque3tionably correct, being written at the 
time by one familiar with all his neighbors, still furnishes us with the 
only knowledge that we have that he was twice married, and gives us no 
clue whatever to his first wife. There is no indication elsewhere in 
any records that points to this first marriage or to any issue from it. 

In that invaluable work to searchers in New England genealogical his- 
tory, the " Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New Eng- 
land," by James Savage, in four volumes, a work of immense labor and 
years of investigation into all available records, it is not surprising, in the 
midst of so much detail, that he should fall into several errors in his 
account of the descendants of Edward Doty, and these errors have been 
copied by others and have thus, to some extent, been further circulated. 
His account, found in the second volume, is as follows : 

"Dotey, Doty, Dote or Doten. Edward. Plymouth. Came in May- 
flower, 1620, a London youth in the service of Stephen Hopkins. Was 
one of signers of the solemn compact in Cape Cod harbor, Nov. 11th, and 
was with his master in the shallop that in December following discovered 
Plymouth harbor. June 18, 1621, was party In first duel in New Eng- 
land. He retrieved his character by change froni youthful folly. M. 
(probably as second wife; 6th January, 1635, Faith, daughter of Tristram 

" Children : 1. William. 2. Faith. 3. Edward. 4. John. 5. Isaac, 
b. Feb. 8, 1648. 6. Desire. 7. Thomas. 8. Joseph, b. April 30, 1651. 

"Bradford says he had 7 children living in 1650. He was, in 1852, one 
of the purchasers of Dartmouth, but removed to Yarmouth and died Aug. 
23, 1655. His will of March 20, 1654, names only his wife and Edward. 
His widow m. Mch 14, 1667, John Phillips of Duxbury & outlived him." 

Following this is a list of the descendants of Desire, Edward, John, 
Joseph and Thomas. 

While there is no mention of three other children in this list (Samuel, 
Elizabeth and Mary), there appears to be no authority whatever for the 
first two named, William and Faith, and it is evident that they are given 
in error. Possibly the name of the widow, which occurs not only in the 
Plymouth records after her husband's death but also in several local 
histories, has been mistaken for a daughter, but the name of William does 
not appear elsewhere. 

The entry on the Colony record is : 

"6th Jany, 1634-5. Edward Doten and Fayth Clarke wer maried." 

Faith Clarke was born 1610, and was at this time but sixteen years of 
age, was the daughter of Thurston Clarke and Faith, ills wife. They 
came to Plymouth from Ipswich, Suffolk, England, in 1634 in the Francis, 
he being at that time forty-four years of age. His name is sometimes 
written Tristram Clarke. Besides their daughter Faith they had two 
sons, Thurston, Jr., and Henry. They probably had no issue. Under 
date of 1st April, 1690, we find : " The selectmen of Duxborough having 
reported that two of their inhabitants, Henry Clarke and Thirston Clarke, 


by reason of their age indiscretion & weakness of understanding are 
inca|)alile of Ineir own support notwithstanding that they have an estate 
sunicient, and John Dotey of Plymouth their nephew having promised to 
take prudent care of them Is allowed to recoup himself fz'om their estate," 
under certain conditions mentioned. Thurston Clarke, the elder died at 
r)uxl)ury, Mass.. U>(>1. His widow died about l(Ui8. as appears by an 
entry in the records 1st June, 10(18. " The Court haue ordered concerning 
the di.sjiosing of the eatnte of Faith Clarke widdow, deceased, that her 
daughter Faith Dotey widdow shall haue a quarte pte," etc. 

After the death of her husband iSIrs. Faith Dotey resided at Plymouth. 
There are receipts upon the records there from the following of her child- 
ren for their share of their father's estate, these being all of her sons : 

Edward Dotey and Sarah, his wife, Oct. 16, IfiGS. 

John Douly and Elizabeth, his wife, Jan. IT, 1(!()7. 

Thomas Douty, Jan. 17, 16()8. 
■ Samuel Dotey, July 16, 16()8. 

Jo.-^eith Doten, May 30, 1672. 

Isaac Dotey, alias Doughty, July 5, 1672. 

On the 14th ^Sfarch, 1667, she married at Plymouth John Phillips, of 
Maishfield. Shurtleff's " History of Mar.shfield " says : 

" Soon after the death of his second wife Mr. John Phillips, on the 
2;Jd Feb., 1666-7, made a contract of marriage with Mrs. Faith Dotey (the 
widow of Edward Dotej'), which was consummated by marriage the 14th 
March following, By this contract i' appears that both parties had sev- 
eral children. Her family consisted of several sons, Edward, Thomas, 
John, and possibly more, and daughters Desire, Elizabeth and ^lary. 
Mrs. Faith Phillips died December, 1075. Her estate from her first 
htisband wa.s divided among her children." The contract above spoken 
of is entered on the records at Plymouth : "2d July, 1666. Ypon a 
motion of marriage betwixt John Phillips of Marshfield and Faith Dotey 
of Plymouth these i)ticulars were joyntly concluded of the abouesaid 
|)ties, as followoth." The conditions provide that the children of both 
I>arties nmiain at the disposition of their own parents : that she retains 
for her own sole use all of her own estate : and that if he died first 
she was to have a life interest in one third of his estate. It is signed 
by the contracting parties. Faith Dotey signing by her mark, and it is 
witii'ssed by her daughter, who signs plainly " Desire Dotey." 

Jolin Phillii)S was born in England 1602. He resided successively at 
Plyiuoiith, Duxbury and Marshfield. He died there July, 1677. Mrs. 
Faith Phillips resided after her second marriage at Mar.shfield, and her 
younger chiUlren removed there with her. She died December, 1675. 
The <l!iy of her death is not given, but she was buried 21st December. 
I675, ill the old cemetery at Marshfield. Mass. 

On the record there appears the following, under date of " 10th July 
1077. Whereas there is about thirty shillings of the estate of Faith 
Phillijis, deceasiHl lying the costody of John Phillii)s her husband, it is 
a'.;reed Ijy and betwei'ii the sonnes of the said Faith Phillipes and with 
theire joynt consent, that the .said sume shalbe payed vnto the daughters 


of the said Faith Phillips, viz : Desire Serinan, Elizalx'th I{ous<^ and 
Maiy Doten, in eqiiall and calilte proportions, vnlosse the two younger 
sisters shall see reason, in respect of the low condition of the eldest, to 
consider her in that respect."

•_». EDWAUI) DOTY (or DOTEN), the oldest son of Edward Doty ;iik1 
Faith Chxrke. was born at Plymouth, probably in 1037. lie was, there- 
fore, at the deatli of his father, in 1055, eighteen years of age. 

lie was a seaman bj- profession, and probably early adopted this occu- 
pation. It is not unreasonable to suppose he did so at this time, notwith- 
standing the fact that the will of his fath<!r shows he became heir and 
possessor of a double portion of the estate. The records show, too, that 
he received several grants of land between 1003 and 1008, and th(>se were 
not readily granted to men so young except they were men of some sub- 
stance or had shown some special service to the Colony, but seamen were 
frequently held to be deserving of these grants. His voyages were mostlj' 
short ones along the coast, and may have been for purposes of trade with 
the other settlements, or possibly for fishing. 

Tiie entries on the records in which his name appears are as follows : 

In 1003 he sold the land received from his father at Punkakeesott (Tiv- 
erton) to I^dward Gray. 

1002, 3il ()ctoI)er. Edward Dotey (with others) is " to bee considered 
in an accomodation of land in tiuit which Captaine Willett hath purchased 
on the north l)ounds of Rehoboth or elsewhere." This was in the bounds 
of the present town of Attleboro, Mass., and the Captain Willett was the 
Thomas Willett who went to New York City at the invitation of the Gov- 
ernor of New York, and who was the first English Mayor of that city and 
the ancestor of the Willett family of New York. 

1GG3, 30th March. Was granted " the 15th lot on l^uncatoeset neck to 
Itobert Lee and Edward Dotey." 

1()05, 7th June. He was granted by the Court one share of about thirty 
acres on the westerly side of Namasskett Uiver. This was probably 
within the bounds of the present Middleborough. 

1('.05, 10th Octo. Edward Dotey and Sarah, his wife, convey to John 
Sraitii his land at Ponagansett in Dartmouth, in exchange for a house and 
lot on North Street, Plymouth, and further consideration in monej*. This 
deed is signed as above, Edward Dotey. This plot was on the north side 
of North street, in Plymouth, commencing about fifty feet from Court 
street, and incluiled the ground on which some half-dozen modern houses 
now stand. 

At the death of Edwaid Doty these plots came into the possession of 
his soii-in law, James AVarren, who bought the shares of the various heirs 
as thry became of age. The names of the present owners, as well as the 
immediate possessors, are given by Mr. Davis in his " Ancient Land- 
marks of Plymouth," pages 172-3, etc. 


1055-G, 8th Jany. Edward Dotey was granted three acres at the Tnr- 
key Swamp. 

1667, 2d July. Liberty was granted to Edward Dotey and his brother 
John Dotey " to look out for some supplyes of land." 

1667, Octo. He was granted six acres at Swampy Meadow. 

1668. Edward Dotey was on jury. 

Same year. Edward Dotey, alas Douty, and his wife Sarah, sell to 
Francis Combs land on the West side of Nemeweskott River. 

1668-9, 31st Jany. He was granted fifty acres at Monponsett. This 
was in the present town of Halifax, Mass., northwest of Plymouth. 

1674. He is named on a bail bond, Edward Doten, seaman. 

1684. Edward Dotey alias Doten buys a plot at Plymouth. 

1684, 28th Octo. Edward Doten Sr. was on a Coroner's jury. 

1686, 6th July. Edward Dotey Sr was on jury. 

1689, June. Edward Dotey Senr. was admitted as a Freeman. 

The entire absence on the records of disputes of any nature whatsoever, 
or anything derogatory to his character, taken in connection with what is 
known of the high character borne by all his children, leads to the belief 
that he was a man of intelligence, integrity and thrift, who stood high in 
the regard of his neighbors and townsmen. 

He married, 25th February, 1662-3, Sarah Faunee, who was born at 
Plymouth about 1645, and was daughter of John Faunee and Patience his 
wife, and sister of the famous Elder Thomas Faunee. 

John Faunee came to Plymouth, 1623, in the Ann. In the same vessel 
came George Morton, the author of "Mourt'sRelacion," previously noted, 
with his wife Julian, whom he had married in 1612 at Leyden, she a 
daughter of Alexander Carpenter of Wrentham, England. With her par- 
ents came Patience Morton, born at Leyden 1615, who in 1634 married 
John Faunee. 

Their son Thomas Faunee, who was the worthy Elder of the church, 
was Town Clerk from 1685 to 1723. During this time the town records 
were generally entered by him, and it is to be noted that although the 
name appears in 1674 and in 1684 written " Doten," that in 1686 and 1689 
he enters his brother-in-law's name always " Dotey," and continues to 
write it so during his term of office. 

It seems probable, from this connection with the Faunee and other 
leading families, that Edward Dotey and his wife Sarah were devout 
Christians, carefully bringing up their family to good habits and the prac- 
tice of the virtues. It is related that in a storm on the 8th Feb., 1689-90. 
Edward Dotey, with his son John and Elkanah Watson, another resident 
of Plymouth, were drowned in Plymouth harbor, or, perhaps more prop- 
erly, by the wreck of their vessel in attempting to enter the harbor. 

On the 18th March following, "Sarah Dotey relict widdow of Edward 
Dotey late of Plimouth deceased," made oath to an inventory of the estate, 
to which her brother-in-law, " John Doten," and son-in-law, James War- 
ren, were witnesses. The widow continued to live in Plymouth until 
1693, whereon the 26th April of that year she married John Buck, of 
Scituate, Mass. He had come with his brother James in the Diligent 



in 1638 and settled first at Hinghani, but removed, 1650, to Scituate. He 
married for his llrst wife Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel llolbrook of 
Weymouth, by whom he had ten children. 

It is probable that at her second marriage jNIrs. Bu(;k removed to Scit- 
uate, where her death occurred 27th June, 1095. 

Shortly after tliis, at Plymouth, on the 9th July, 1695, " Thomas f 
faunce and John Dotey," both of Plymouth, and their uncles, were ap- 
pointed by the Court guardians of the minor children, Samuel, Benjamin 
and Mercy. Thoy could scarcely have had better guardians or better 
training than they received from their guardianship. 

On the 3d December, 1696, an agreement is entered upon the records 
made between James Warren and Sarah liis wife, Martha Doty, Tobias 
Oiikman and Elizabeth, his wife, and Thomas Faunce and John Dotej-, 
guardians of Samuel, Benjamin and Mercy Dotey, " being all the heirs of 
Edward Dotey deceased," for the distribution of his estate. The whole 
estate, or at least the whole real estate in Plymouth, by purchase from 
all the heirs, subsequently passed into the possession of James Warren. 

When Thomas Faunce became town clerk, in 1685, he soon opened a 
book for the registry of births, marriages and deaths. These had occa- 
sionally been entered in the earlier records, but not so fully as was now 
attempted by the new clerk. The families of his relatives by blood or 
marriage are entered very fully, the births of all the living members being 
given, though dating back much earlier. 

One of the earliest records in this register is given thus: 

" The children of P> Doty Senior and Sarah his wife — 

11. i. Edwakd, born t20th May, 1664. 

12. ii. Sauah, born 9th day June, 1666. 

13. iii. JouN, born 4th day of August, 1668. 

14. iv. Maky, ) Twin.s, born 9th day of July, 1771. 
1.). V. Maktiia, ) J ^> 

16. vi. Elizabeth, born 22d Dec, 1673 ; m. before 1696 Tobias Oak- 
man, as appears bj' the partition deed quoted above. No other 
refer<ni<-e to them aj^pears on the records at Plymouth, and it is 
probable that thc^j' removed soon elsewhere. 

17. vii. Patience, born 7th July, 1676. 

18. viij. Mekcy, b. 6th Febuawarv, 1678. Shee dyed the last day 
of November, 1682. 

19. ix. Samikl, born 17th May, 1681. 

20. X. Mkhoy, born 23d September, 1684. 

21. -xi. Bkn.tamin, born 30th May, 16S9. 

Of these, besides the first '' Mercj'," death is given on the record, 
Edward, tlie oldest son, died probably betwi^an 1690, at which date his 
father is still called Senior, and 169(), when the agreement between all the 
living heirs shows that he had died and without i-ssue. John was drowned 
in the harbor with his father Feb. 8, 1689 90, and Patience died Feb. 
26, 1690 1. 

12. SAltAlI DOTY, the eldest dau. of Edward Doty and Sarah Faunce, 
was b. at Plymouth,, June 9, 1666. She m. there June 21, 1687, 
James Warren, b. also at Plymouth, Nov. 7, 1665, the youngest sou of 
Nathaniel Warren and Sai-ah Walker, his wife, and grandson of Richard 


















Warren, who came in the Mayflower 1(520. They were the ancestors of a 
noble and illustrious line of patriots. 

James Warren was a man of great influence and wealth and a Justice 
of the Peace at Plymouth. He is frequently called Captain James War- 
ren on the records. He was a man of enterprise and judgment, and 
became a very large landholder in the town and vicinity. He bought the 
eiatire real estate of Edward Doty, his father-in-law, as the heirs became 
of age or removed from the town. His name is identified with the history 
of Plymouth by his various transactions and public-spirited improvements 
in the building of the town, and by coimection with the distinguishoil 
families of the vicinity. 

The children of James Warren and Sarah, his wife, are entered upon the 
records at Plymouth, as follows :

14. MARY DOTY, dau. ot Edward Doty and Saiah Faunce, his wife, 
was b. at Plymouth, July 9, 1671. She m. there Dec. 21, 1699, Joseph 
Allyn, who was b. at Barnstable, Mass., April 7, 1671, and son of Lieu- 
tenant Samuel Allyn and Hannah, daughter of Rev. Thomas W alley. 
Lieutenant Samuel Allyn was a son of Thomas Allyn, one of the earliest 
settlers of Barnstable. 

Joseph Allyn and his wife lived for several years at Plymouth, but 
removed about 1705 to Wethersfield, Ct., where they subsequently 
resided. Though the house in which they resided at Plymouth was not 
built by him and was occupied by him only durmg the three years between 
his marriage and his departure to Weatherstteid, it was known for manj- 
years, in fact as long as the house existed, as the "Allyn House," which 
designation, Davis declares, was due alone to its association with this 
distinguished family. 

Members of the Allyn family were early at Hartford, Windsor, Middle- 
ton, Wethersfleld and other towns in that vicinity in Connecticut, cer- 
tainly as early as 1693-4 and possibly before that. The family has always 
been prominent and influential and has left its impress on each town. 
Hotels, public halls, blocks of buildings and other improvements bear 
testimony to the public spirit of those who have borne the name. By the 
records at Wethersfleld it appears that "'Joseph Allin of Plimouth, 
marriner, bought lands at Wethersfleld of Nicholas Moorecock and Amy 


his wife of Boston in Massachusetts, 7th Sept., in the third year of Our 
Sov. tjueoii Anne (1704 i." Tiii.s is recorded Feb. 5, 1704-5. showing the 
probable date of removal from Plymouth, as his daughter Hannah is 
stated on the record to have been boru at \Vethersfleld, JMay 17, 1705. 

Letters of administration on the estate of Captain Joseph Allyn, late of 
Wethersfield. were granted to Nathaniel Stillman, April G, 1742. Early 
in 1744 all the heirs agreed to and signed a settlement, which was 
ordered to be kept on file in the Probate Office. A careful search in 
the office at Hartford, Ct., failed to discover this paper, nor did the 
records at Wethersfield. or furtlK^r inquiries there, give any further infor- 
mation as to the de-scendauts. Nathaniel Stillman, of Wethersfield, was 
his son-in-law, having married his daughter Sarah. Captain Joseph 
AUyn's farm and residence at Wethersfield were at a beautiful spot on the 
baidvs of the Connecticut River, connnanding an extensive view. It is 
probalile that even after locating here he followed, for a time at least, his 
profession of mariner, the Connecticut River having early become the seat 
of an extensive trade to the Bai'badoes and East Indies: and communica- 
tions must have been frequent, not only with his Virother in-law, Captain 
Samuel Doty, at Sayln-ook, but also with those who remained at the old 
homesteads at Plymouth.

Ct., Jan. 26, 1750: she d. Saybrook, Ct., Dec. 16. 1745. 

CajitJiin Sanmel Doty lost his father in 1690. In 1695 the estate 
was settled, and his uncles, Thomas Faunce and John Doty were 


appointed guardians of the youngest children, Samuel, Mercy and Ben- 
jamin. He early adopted the profession of his father and uncle and 
became a mariner. In 1705, as appears by deed at Plymouth, he sold all 
his property there to his brother-in-law. Captain James Warren. This 
property consisted of four or five different plots of many acres each at 
various places, and included that received from his father as well as his 
own purchases. In this deed lie is described as "mariner of Connecticut." 
He probably removed to Saybrook, Ct., as early as 1703 ; he married there 
1700 and in 1708 purchased the home lot and dwelling at Saybrook Point, 
in which he afterward lived. This purchase was made for £00. 

From this time he continually purchased property at Saybrook, as 
appears from deeds on record there, and became a considerable land- 
holder. He traded with the Barbadoes, West Indies, and other foreign 
ports, and in 1715 he is described in deeds as merchant. 

From the Connecticut Colonial Records it appears that at a meeting of 
the Governor and his Council, held Aug. 26, 1710, it was ordered that four 
certain vessels should be impressed for service in the exjiedition against 
Nova Scotia, one of these being a new sloop called the Six Friends, of 
about fifty-five tons, belonging to Mr. Samuel Dotey, of Saybrook, which 
cost (as appears by his account on file) in building and fitting £450. In 
case of loss he to be paid full value, and there was allowed to Mr. Samuel 
Doty, master of the sloop Six Friends, and his men, toward wages 
£lh, 10s. 

"Meeting of Council. Nov. 8, 1710. Ordered, that the transports now in 
the harbour of New London under the command of Capt. Dotee and Bur- 
roughs do deliver to the Commissary what stores &c belong to this Colony 
they have on board." And again : " Octo. 1727. This Assembly do estab- 
lish and confirm Mr. Samuel Doughty of Seybrook to be Captain of the 
Company or trainband in the old Society in the town of Seybrook afore- 
said, and order that he be commissioned accordingly." 

In the second book of Saybrook records: "Entered y^ July 28*'' 1724. 
The marks Capt Samuel Dotey puts on his cattle is an half cross on the 
under side of near ear, and a hole in the same ear. " 

In 1732 and 1737 Mr. Samuel Dotey was a deputy, or representative, 
from Saybrook to the General Assembly of Connecticut. 

In 1880 the writer visited Saybrook, Ct. , and met there, Sept. 7th, Mr. 
Horace Stillman, a descendant of Captain Samuel Doty. iMr. Stillmaii, 
at that time eighty-seven years of age but still a man of active habits, 
pointed out the site on Saybrook Point on which Captain Samuel Doty 
built and where he died. Mr. Horace Stillman had himself lived in the 
house, which had then been somewhat enlarged ; but some years since, 
while he was away, the house being very old had been pulled down, and 
unfortunately all the old papers and documents had been destroyed. Oil 
paintings of Captain Doty and his daughter, in a very dilapidated state, 
were preserved, but all else was lost. Captain Doty owned considerable 
land on Saybrook Point and had also a cooper shop there, where the 
manufacture of barrels was carried on. 


The portraits reftMn^d to above, rcnoviited and renewed, are now in the 
possesion of Rev. AVililam D'Orville Doty, of Rochester, N. Y. The one 
represents a fine, portly gentleman in the costume of the time, holding in 
his hand a letter, which is directed to " rhillp Thomas, merchant, Barba- 
does." An open window shows a bark nnder full sail, and is evidently 
intended to .--how his profession or business. The other portrait is that of 
]\Irs. Margeria Parker Doty, the wife of his son Samuel. 

Mrs. Annie Buckingham Doty, wife of Caj)tain Samuel Doty, was the 
ninth and youngest child of Rev. Thomas Buckingham and Esther llos- 
mer, hi.swife, who was the daughter of Thomas llosmer, of Hartford, Ct. 

Rev. Thomas Buckingham was of Welsh parentage, was ordained 
minister at Baybrook, Ct. , 1670, and continued to preach until his death, 
April 1, 1709, aged nearly sixty-three years. He was one of the found, rs 
of Vale College: was a "fellow" there from 1700 until his death, and a 
strong supporter of the college both at Saybrook and New Haven. He 
was one of the leaders of the clergy and the strict Puritans of his time, 
and one of tiie Moderators of the famous Synod which formed the eele- 
brated SayV)rook Platform in 1708. 

Captain Samuel Dot}' and his wife are buried side by side in the old 
Saybrook burying ground. The gravestones of red sandstone are still 
in a fair state of preservation and bear the following inscriptions : 

" Here lies Interrd the remains of Capt. SanmelDoty, who departed 
this life .January y<* tiQ A. D. 1750 in y« 70^11 year of his age." 

" Here lies luterr'i the body of Mrs Ann Dotj", wife of Capt. Samuel 
Doty who Dec'i Decendjr Kjf'i 1745 in ye .59 of her age " 

And on the footstones : "Capt Samuel Doty ." " Mrs Ann Doty" 

Xear these were two othei- graves, side by side, with stones and inscrip- 
tions as follows : 

" Here lies interrd the body of Mr Samuel Doty who departed this life 
December y"^" l(i 1751 in y 89 j'cuir of his age." On footstone : " ilr 
Samuel Doty." 

" Here lies Interr'' the body of Mrs Ann Doty who departed this lil'i' 
August y 20"' 175^^, ill y 21^* year of ln>rage." On footstone : ".Mrs 
Ann Doty." 

These are the graves of Samuel, the son of Captain Samuel Doty, and 
Ann, the daugiier of the former, who, though not married, b(iars the title 
"Mrs." in accordance with the cxistom of the time. Captain Doty was 
a man of im|)ortance and of eonsidiMable property. Besides that at Say- 
brook Point he owned a large farm at Deep River, Ct., which he conveyed 
by gift to his son Samuel in 17;58. He was a man of great probity, and a 
consistent member of the lirst Congregational Church of Saybrook, in the 
annals of which are many references to his family. The town records are 
also well preserved, bul do not contain the detailed records of families as 
fully as those of Plymouth; tiie records are now deposited with I he town 
clerk at Deej) River, Ct., which svas a part of the old town. 

Saybrook Point, where Ca[)tain Samuel Doty had his residence, has lost 
mucji of its old iiii|)ortaiice. Lying at the mouth of the Connecticut 
River, it was one of the ejirliest .settlements in the State, a fort having 


been built thoro in 1G35. By llie early part of the next century it had 
become a busy trading port, and numerous vessels plied between the 
town and the West Indies, and this trade supplied the inhabitants of 
the Point with their occupation for many years. Captain Samuel Doty 
was the leading merchant of the Point at this time of its greatest r'l'os- 
peiity. After he had retired from active sea life, he dispatched 
his vessels to the various ports of the West India islands, while he super- 
intended on shore his cooper shop and other investments more or less 
directly connected with his main business. 

The beautiful, quiet and restful village now called Old Sayl>rook lies 
several miles above the Point; its broad roads, tall elms and comfortable 
looking mansions show it to have been a home of wealth and culture 
rather than of trade. Here, in a frame building of one story and eighty 
feet in length, was established, in 1701, the college which seventeen years 
later was removed to New Haven and called Yale College. The Rev. 
Thomas Buckingham was one of its founders and most earnest supporters. 
As the minister of the first church at Saybrook he became, in 1708, one 
of the most active members of the Synod that adopted the " Saybrook 
Platform " as the confession of faith for the college and the churches of 
the colony. 

Captain Samuel Doty, his son-in-law, was a strong adherent and 
sympathizer. His training and surroundings at Plymouth had tended 
toward an exemplary life. He was a man of strong character and earnest 
purpose, and this, combined with his spirit of thrift and adventure, caused 
him speedily to assume a place of influence in the community. 

At no time after his departure from Plymouth is his name spelled 
"Doten." Almost invariably the deeds and other pai)ers upon the 
records at Saybrook are signed or written " Doty," and this is the form 
that has been adopted by all his descendants without exception, as well as 
by those of his brother Benjamin, who followed him to Saybrook and was 
the ancestor of a large family there. Their posterity being the only 
descendants in the male line of Edward Doty 2d, of Plymouth, it follows 
that the name of Doten has no standing in this branch. Captain Samuel 
Doty and Anne, his wife, had children.

20. MERCY DOTY, the tenth child and youngest daughter of Edward 
Doty and Sarah Faunce, was born at Plymouth, Mass., Sept. 23, 1684. 
Left an orphan at the age of eleven years, she probably lived with one of 
her uncle guardians at Plymouth until her brothers Samuel and Benjamin 
established their home at Saybrook, Ct., when she followed them, taking 
up her residence there. She married, Nov. 13, 1713, at Saybrook, Daniel 
Pratt, who was born there Jan. 13, 1(580-1, and was a son of John Pratt 
and Mary Andrews. 

Pratts were numerous in the early settlements of New England, and 
several different families of that name settled early at Saybrook or in the 
vicinitv. An excellent genealogy of the family has been published— "The 


Pratt Famll}-," by Rev. F. W. Chapman, A. M., Hartford, 18G4— from 
which many quotations have already been made in the preceding pages, 
and from which the following record has substantially been taken. 

John Pratt, of Saylirook, is styled in the Town Records "John Pratt 
(Taylor) " to distinguish him from another John with whom he was aeon- 
temporary and who bears the title " John Pratt (Smith)." 

It is not known who was his father nor from whence he came. One of 
his sons, as appears from a deed of land on record, removed to South- 
ampton, on Long Island, and it is possible that the father may have lived 
there before coming to Saybrook, though there is no proof to warrant this 
assertion, lie married, Aug. 10, 167G, Mary Andrews, by whom he had 
six children, of whom Daniel was the only son who remained in Saybrook 
and had a family. 

Daniel Pratt and Mercy his wife lived and died at Saybrook, Ct.

Plymouth, Mass., May 30, 1089; m. Saybrook, Ct., Oct. 2, 1716, Hester 
Bemen, b. Saybrook, Ct., dau. Samuel Beracn and Hester Buckingham. 

From the records of Plymouth, Mass., we learn that July 2, 1710. 
" Benjamin Dotey of Plymouth sells his share of the estate of his father 
to James Warren " (his brother-in-law). It was probably about this time 
that he removed to Saybrook, Ct. , where he afterwards resided, and 
where his brother, Samuel Doty, had pi-eceded him. We find no further 
record of him till his marriage in 171G. Samuel Bemen, or Beamond, as 
the name is sometimes written, the father of his wife, died at Saybrook, 
November, 1747, aged eighty and upwards. He was born at Sayltrook 
and was a son of William Beamond, who came to Saybrook in the ship 
Elizabeth from London 1635, aged at that time twenty-seven years, and 
married there, 1643, Lydia, daughter of Nicholas Danforth. 

Hester Buckingham, wife of Samuel Bemen, was born also at Saybrook, 
and was the oldest daughter of Rev. Thomas Buckingham, the first min- 
ister of the Congregational Church at Saybrook. She was a sister of the 
Aime Buckingham who married Samuel Doty. 

Benjamin Doty was a farmer. His farm, still called the "Doty farm," 
is situatetl about three miles from the village of Saybrook, and the site of 
the old homestead is easily found by the ruined cellar, the large orchard 
adjoining the spacious yard, and the spring at the foot of the garden. 
Three generations of this branch of the Doty family held the place. Sev- 
eral old tan vats in the vicinity seem to indicate that he was a tanner by 
trade. Tradition says that Mrs. Hester Doty was a woman of strong 
mind and superior education. 


By the record of Saybrook deeds, now on file at Deep River, Ct., we 
find, under the date 1731-2, Samuel Beaman gives to his daughter Hester 
and Benjamin Doty a lot in Saybrook. 

1744, May 25, is entered a cattlemark as follows: "The marks that 
Benjamin Doty puts on his cattle is a swallow-tail or notches on the top 
of y«^ near ear." 

Under date 17.'52, Benjamin Doty and Hester Doty, his wife, Samuel 
Shipman and Sarah, his wife, Hester Doty second, Edward Doty and 
Temperance Doty, being children of said Benjamin Doty, unite in selling 
2^ acres at Saybrook to Kichard Lord. 

And in 1762, Sept. 12, as appears by the records of the church at Say- 
brook, " Esther Doty, Benjamin's wife, was admitted to communion." 

By this it would seem that Mrs. Hester Doty certainly, and Benjamin 
Doty probably, lived till after 1762, but there is no record nor tradition to 
show the dates of their deaths, while the quiet and peaceful farm life they 
led accounts for the absence of any further entries. 

It is true that among the descendants of this family there has l)ecn a 
tradition that this Benjanun Doty married Esther Danforth. There is 
nothing to support that tradition. The records show very plainly the mar- 
riage at the date above given to Hester Bemen, and the subsequent deeds 
confirm it. The deed of 1752 included all their living children who were 
then of lawful age, and this is again confirmed by the dates of birth of 
these childrert as given upon the church records or by their descendants. 
The only foundation that is apparent for the tradition of " Esther Dan- 
forth" is the descent from the emigrant, Nicholas Danforth. 

Two further items found on the records of the church at Saybrook have 
produced further confu.sion. They are as follows : 

" Benja™ , the son of Benjamin Doty, dyed Sept 1, 1738 aged 37." 

"1752. Octo 14. Benjamin Doty Jr and Martha his wife owned the 


The will of Thomas Jones, of Saybrook, Ct., dated March 11), 1771, 
mentions a davxghter, Martha Doty, and her -son, Edward Doty. 

These items are inconsistent with the record as here given, and, unless 
they are errors in the church books, are explicable only on the theory of 
there being another Benjamin Doty residing at Saybrook. The title 
Junior, as given at that time, did not necessarily infer that the person 
bearing it was the son of the other Benjamin. Its significance was "the 
younger," and it was frequently used to distinguish two of a name, even 
though not closely related. It will be noticed that Benja'" , the son of 
Benjamin Doty, who died Sept. 1, 173S, aged 37, must have been born 
1701, and the father probably thirty years earlier, or about 1670, at which 
date, nor till 1080, was there any Benjamin Doty in existence of whom 
there is any knowledge. Again, the second entry shows that Benjamin 
Doty, Jr. , who was living with his wife Martha in 1752, cannot refer to 
either Benjamin in the first entry, and the conclusion is unavoidable, after 
a close study, that both items are clerical errors in the church records.

■with the " Gray Collection " in the Museum of Fine Arts at Boston, or in 
the State House. 

The following account of Colonel James Otis and. his descendants is 
condensed from an excellent history of the family in the " New England 
Genealogical Register," vol. 2, July, 1848. 

James Otis rose to be a man of great distinction and influence, of 
superior genius, but more indebted to the native energy of his mind than 
to a regular education for the acquirements he possessed. He was dis- 
tinguished for his knowledge of the law, and ardently engaged in 
asserting the rights of the Colonies. He was elected to the Provincial 
Legislature in 1758, and made Speaker of the House in 1700. In 1763 
he was appointed Judge of Probate for Barnstable County, and a year 
later Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas. In this year, 1764, 
he was also chosen one of His Majesty's Council, but was not allowed to 
sit at the Council Board until 1770, owing to his opposition to the measures 
of government. During the first year of the Revolution he still sat at the 
Council Board, of which body he was president and the oldest member. 
From 1760 to 1775 he served on committees of tlio Legislature which re- 
ported many of the most remarkable and masterly stati* papers of this 
period, and his name is frequently mentioned as a compeer with Adims, 
Quincy and Hancock 

He died Nov. 9, 1778, having lived long enough to see the prospective 
success of his country in tlie struggle for freedom. His portrait is in the 
old State House, Boston.

The record at Wethersfield says : " ^Tr. Benjamin Stillman and Sarah, 
ye daughter of Capt. Samuel Doty of Say-Brook wore married on August 
ye 29tii 1727 by y® Rev<^i Mr. Azariah Mather, Minister." 

Wethersfield was one of the early settlements of Connecticut and for 
many years was a flourishing and important town, with a considerable 
foreign as well as domestic trade. It has lost its earlj- importance and has 
to-day but few traces of its early settlers, whose descendants have emi- 
grated to other parts of the country. The town records give but scant 
information of the Stillman family, otlier than that in those days, 1 730 to 
1750, Benjamin Stillman was a man of prominence and influence in the town 
and a considerable owner of real estate there.

also at Deep River, 

Samuel Doty graduated from Yale College in 1733. He received by 
deed of gift from his father in 1738 a farm at Deep River, where he subse- 
quently lived. The house he built is still standing and in good condition, 
and was partly occupied in 1880 by his great granddaughter, ^liss Ann 
Lord. Miss Lord still had in her possession a string of gold beads that 
belonged to Mrs. Margeria Parker Doty, and had shortly before parted 
with a fine portrait in oil'of her, it now being possessed by Mrs. Julia N. 
D. Harvey, of Saybrook, Ct., and being almost a duplicate of that owned 
by her brother. Rev. William D'Orville Doty, of Rochester, N. Y. By 
the records of the First (Jhurch at Saybrook, it appears that " Margeria, 
widow of Mr. Samuel Doty, was admitted to the communion Nov. 27, 

Administration of the estate of the widow Margery Doty, late of Say- 
brook, was granted to Samuel Doty (her son) of Saybrook, and his in- 
ventory of her estate was approved June 6, 1785. The estate included 
seven acres of land, silver plate, etc.. and was valued at 34 £. Deep River 
was part of Saybrook. The administrator, Samuel Doty, sold above land

had no children by either of these 

In his j'outh he was engaged in the Indian Wars, and was for a time a 
captive to tlie Indians. His sufferings at this time affected his mind, and 




















in later years he was at times partially deranged, and when in that condi-

children. He was adnutted as Freedman of SayV)rook 1708, and his cattle 
mark is entered there Jan. 18, 1770. lie was a Revolutionary soldier

Benjamin Doty was a soldier in tlie Revolutionary War. He served as 
a private iu Captain Martin Kirtland's Saj'brook company in Colonel 
Era.stus Wolcott's regiment, the Nineteenth Regiment of Connecticut 
ndlitia, and was in .service iu New London, Ct., Feb. 38, 1777. He sub- 
sequently was granted pension for this service. 

His grandson, Rev. William D'Orville Doty writes: 

" He resided at the old Doty homestead and carried on farming, tanning 
and the nianufac ure of shoes. He and his wife were members of the 
Congregational Society of Saybrook. They resided there until after the 
birth of all their children, and iu 1797 sold the homestead and started for 
a new home at New Durham, Greene County, N. Y., in the Catskill 
jMountains, where their son Benjamin had preceeded them. The jour- 
ney was made by sloop from Saybrook to Catskill Landins^' on the 
Hudson River, two weeks being consumed bj' the trip. Here the family 
were met by their son Benjamin and Mr. Daniel Coe with horses and oxen 
to transport them and their goods to New Durham. The roads were 
newly made, being cut through the dense forest with an axe only, and 
with the youngest children carried on the loads of furniture and the others 
trudging on foot by their side the journey of twenty-four miles con 
sumed three days, when the party arrived toward evening at Mr. Coe's 
house. Here the wagons were left and the almost exhausted travelers 
started on foot upon the last mile over a "follow" that was but just 
cleared of trees, leaving the ground covered with logs and broken 
branches, brush and briers. It was late at night when they arrived at 
their final destination, but the warm welcome and bountiful repast which 
greeted them soon changed their sorrow to joy. The old log house gradual ly 
gave way to a better tenement, the schoolhouse and church made their 
appearance, and the parents lived to see the wilderness turned into a 
prosperous settlement." 

As appears on an old Bible record, Benjamin Doty d. March 12, 183G, 
aged eighty-three years seven months and fifteen days. Mrs. Phebe Doty 
d. Jan. IG, 18UG, aged fifty-nine, and they are both buried at Durhani.

79. JAMES OTIS, son of James Otis and Mary Allyne, b, Barnstable, 
Mass., Feb. 5, 1724-5; m., Bo.ston, Mas.s., 1755, Ruth Cunningham, b. 

James Otis, well known as " The Patriot," was the orator of the times 
preceding the Revolution, and one of the earliest and boldest asserters 
of the great principles which led to our national existence. He gradu- 
ated at Harvard College, 1743, began practice of the law at Plymouth, 
Mass., but soon after settled in Boston He was appointed Advocate 
General at the Court of Admiralty, and very soon distinguished himself 
by pleading against the " WMts of Assistance," a government measure 
which had provoked great opposition. His argument and oration are said 
to have electrified his audience, and it has been well said that then and 
there the child of Independence was born. President John Adams in 
later years wrote : " I do say, in the most solemn manner, that Mr. Otis' 
oration against writs of assistance breathed into this nation the breath 
of life." 

His effort secured him a commanding popularity with the friends of 
their country, and the terror and vengeance of Its enemies. In ^lay. 1761, 
he was chosen to represent Boston in the Legislature, where his elo- 
quence, wit and force of argument gave him great influence. 

Before the year 1770 no American, Dr. Benjamin Franklin only ex- 
cepted, was so well known in the other Colonies and England. The cause 
of American Independence was identified abroad with his name, and it 
was thought, foolishly enough, that if he was taken away the cause 
would perish. 

In 1770 he was attacked by a royalist named Robinson, cruelly beaten, 
his head cut open, and he was picked up bleeding and faint, a spectacle 
of ruin. His wounds, though not mortal, had destroyed his reason and 
left him but the wreck of what he once had been. The great man was 
no longer feared by his enemies— the enemies of liberty— but lived a 
melancholy monument to his friends for several years. He was struck 
by lightning while standing at the door of a house in Andover, Mass., 


May 23, 1TS8, and instantly killed, a form of death wliirh he had fre- 
qufntly prayed for. 

Uiifoi-tiniately his speeches were not reeordrd. his papers have all per- 
ished, and he having been out off before the Revolution actually com- 
menced, his name is connected with none of the great public documents 
that are familiar to our nation. Ho published a number of pamphlets on 
political and literary subjects, for besides his legal and jjolitical Ivnowl- 
edge he was a complete master of classhal literature. 

Tudor, his liiograi)her, has sumiin'd up his merits in the following 
extract : 

"In fine, he was a man of powerful genius and ardent temper, with wit 
and humor that never failed. As an orator, he was bold, argumentative, 
impetuous and commaTiding, with an eloquence that made his own excite- 
ment irresistibly contagious. As a lawyer, his knowledge and ability 
placed him at the head of his profession. As a scholar, he was rich in 
acquisition and governed by a classic taste. As a statesman and civilian 
he was sound and just in his views. As a patriot, he resisted all allure- 
ments that might we.iken the cause of that countrj- to which he devoted 
his life, and for which he sacrificed it. The futiu-e historian of the United 
States, in considering the foundation of American independenc<', will 
find that one of the cornerston»>s must be inscribed with the name of 
James Otis." 

llis portrait is in the old State House Boston. A sketch of his life 
may be found in " Sparks' American Biography," vol. 2 of second series, 
and a more elaborate account in " Tht; f>ife of James Otis." by Wm. 
Tudor. His widow, who survived him, died Nov. 15, 1789. She was the 
daughter of a Boston merchant, verj' beautiful, and possessed of a dowry 
considered in tlio-e times very large. At her death it was divided be- 
tween her daugliters.

b. Plymouth, i\Iass. , 172G. son .James Warren and Penelope Winslow. 

Thf'y were very prominent in t e history of the times. In 1757 he was 
appointed HiL'h Sheriff, a po-sition which he held until the Revolution. 
In 1773 he propo.sed the establishment of committees of correspondence, 
and after the death of General Joseph Warren at the battle of Bunker 
Hill, he wa^ appointed President of the Piovincial Congress. In 1775, 
when the army was in Cambridge, Mass. , he was made Paymaster- Gen- 
eral, and afterwards Major-Geueral f the militia. After the adoption of 
the consitution of his Slate, he was for two years Speaker of the House of 
Representativi's and was offered the position of Secretary of the Navy by 
President Washington, which he declined. 


Mrs. Mercy Warren is best known as the historian of the Rtivolution. 
8he had an activ(3 and pow(!rfuI inind and took a part in politics, holding 
correspondence with some of the active statesmen of the times. Her 
brother, James, being for many years the chief leader and adviser in all 
the councils of the opposition, and her husband being earnestly engaged 
in the same cause, she could not fail to become acquainted with the prin- 
ciples and occurrences of the period, in which her disposition and training 
led her to be deeply interested. She wrote, during the war, several 
satirical poetical pieces which are full of patriotic feeling and heroic sen- 
timents. Her history of the Revolutionary War is an excellent work of 
its kind, and was published in three volumes (8 vo.) in 1800. Itslmws 
great research and sound judgment, and her descriptions of the various 
battles have been highly esteemed. She held a free pen and was perhaps 
too suspicious of aristocratic feelings, which caused a sharp correspond- 
ence between her and John Adams, whose portrait she had drawn. This 
correspondence has recently been published by the Massachusetts Histori- 
cal Society. The matter was amicably settled and notes of courtesy 

Her writings show great ability and her poetry has been nmeh admired. 
The house in which she wrote is still standing in Plymouth, at the corner 
of North and Main streets, and is known as the " Warren House." She 
died there in the Autumn of 1814, aged eighty-six. 

General Warren died in 1808, also at Plymouth, and both arc buried in 
the family plot on Burial Hill.

Her birth is given by the family as January 2, 1733, but the date given 
above, as well as that of her parents' marriage, is taken from Saybrook 
records, and more probably is correct. The difference between old style and 
new style would account for the date of the mouth, but the year on the 
record is almost positively correct. The baptisms of the children are

Samuel Doty was born in that part of Saybrook now known as Deep 
River and probably lived, after his father's death, with his mother till 
his marriage to his cousin in 1758. He was a earpenter and millwright by 
trade, and after his marriage continued to reside at Deep Rivei', probably 
near his mother's farm. At the breaking out of hostilities in the Revolu- 
tionary War he at once enlisted in the Continental array, as did also his 
brother John, and his brother-in-law, Elijah Ward, and later, several of 
his sons. Tradition .states that he served throughout the war faithfully 
and with credit. 

The record shows that he enlisted May 8, 1775, as a sergeant in the 
company of Captain .John Ely, of Saybrook, of Colonel Samuel Ilolden 
Parson's regiment — the Sixth Regiment Connecticut Continental Infantry 
— and served at the siege of Boston, and until honorably discharged by- 
expiration of enlistment, Dec. 18, 1775. He enlisted again as a private, 
June 15, 1770, for one year in Captain Lathrop Allen's company of Colonel 
Samuel Elmore's regiment — Coimeclicut Continental Infantry — and 
marched with it in Jul}', 1770, and joined the Northern army, and on Aug. 
25, 1770, marched into Tryon County. N. Y., and was stationed at Fort 
Dayton, German Flats, until discharged by expiration of enlistment. In 
1780 he was ensign in the Seventh Regiment Connecticut militia, under 
Colonel W^illiam W^orthington, of Saybrook, and was detached April, 1780, 
and appointed ensign of Captain Jacob Whitmore's company, of Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel Commanding Bezaliel Beebe's regiment, Connecticut State 
detached militia and was in United States .service until Oct. 17, 1780. He 
probably served to the close of the war, 17S3, as ensign of Captain James 
Smith's company, in Colonel M. Mead's regiment Connecticut militia. 


At the conclusion of the war he returned to Deep River, but his mother 
died soon after and her estate having become much impaired during the 
absence of her sons at the war. he decided, about 178G, to remove to 
Stephentown, Rensselaer County, N. Y. , where several of his sons and 
other relatives had already preceded him. Here he followed his trade for 
a time, and also had charge of a grist mill. He also lived at Nassau 
and at Brainard, in the same county, but later removed to Albany County, 
N. Y., where he resided at Westerlo, and probably also at Berne. In 
1810 he was residing with his son, Ethan, at Rensselaervillt^ Albany 
County, N. Y., as appears by a power-of-attorney, filed at Saybrook, au- 
thorizing his son to collect all unsettled claims there. After this they 
resided with their son, Ethan, and both died quite aged, in Albany County, 
N. Y., the exact date and place not being determined. 

Captain Samuel Doty, as well as all of his sons, was of tall stature and 
powerful frame. He was a good workman, and a man of excellent 
character, a kind neighbor and a loved parent. Mrs. Mercy Doty was an 
exceedingly active and energetic woman, of great intelligence, probity 
and strength of character ; a worthy wife and a devoted mother.

where he m. and d. 1793, leaving no issue. The record shows that 
he enlisted Jan. 27, 1777, "for the war," in Captain William 
Richard's company of First Regiment Connecticut Continental In- 
fantry, under Colonel Jedediah Huntington, and was appointed 
corporal Sept. 1, 1780. He .served at battles of Germantown, 
Valley Forge and Monmouth, and continuously with the army of 
General Washington until 1781, and then with General Lafayette at 
the battle of Green Spring, Va., and at the Sit>ge of Yorktown. In 
Nov., 1781, he was returned to the Highlands of the Hudson and 
honoral)ly discharged Nov. 3, 1773. He became a pensioner, giving 
his residence as New York State.

William Doty was a (luartermaster in tlie Revohitionary army and 
served throughout the war, at the conclusion of which he returned to Say- 
brook and married as above. The records at Deep River, Ct. , contain 
this item : " William Doty and wife, Ruth, were received into the Cov- 
nant, Aug. IT, 1783, and the same day their daughter Sally was bap- 
tised." Soon after this they removed to Stephentown, Rensselaer County, 
N. Y. , and settled upon a farm in that part of the town known as West 
Stei)hentown. Some years later his father, Edward Dot.y, removed there 
and lived with them. 

William Doty was a man of ability and became a substantial farmer. 
He was a devote and consistent church member, and was known through- 
out the town as Deacon William Doty, to distinguish him from his rela- 
tive. Captain William Doty of the same town. 

Mrs. Doty died at Stephentow-n, M. Y., April 2(), 18;J1. He removed 
about 1835 to Rome, N. Y., where his S(ui lulward had preceded him

He was a farmer at Saybrook, but shortly after his marriage emi- 
grated to Durham, Greene County, N. Y., at that time a wilderness. Here 
he set to work to clear a farm, and in 1797 was joined by his father and 
family. Ho was well calculated to be a pioneer, being of strong frame 
and energetic temperament. Unfortunately, while in the prime of life, and 
in the midst of labors from which he could ill be spared, probably about 
180G, he was killed, being crushed to death by a load of wood while at 
work clearing the wilderness. The settlement being in its infancy no 
record is extant of the date of his death, nor is there any tombstone to 
mark his grave. His widow removed to Western New York with her son, 
Benjamin Doty, and died abont 1836, probably in Allegany County, N. Y.

The following "In Memoriam " is taken from the Windham, N. Y. 
Journal of March 27, 1879: 

"On Thursday of last week Captain William Doty, one of our oldest 
inhabitants, die<l at the residence of his son in this village at the advanced 
age of nearly eighty-eight years. 

" The following incidents of his life have been furnished us and we have 
no doubt they will be of interest to our readers, many of whom have en- 
Joyed a long acquaintance with the deceased. 

" He was born May 13, 1791, in the second year of Washington's Admini- 
stration, at the old Doty homestead in Saybrook, Ct. He was the 
youngest of a large family of children, and in the year 1798, at the early 
age of seven, he came with his father to Durham, N. Y. At that time 
the country was unsettled and in many places a dense wilderness through 
which they cut their way in their Journey to the place which had been 
selected for a future home. 

" A log house and a log barn were soon erected and they commenced life 
as pioneers of a new country. The site of these log buildings is the 


presont rosideiu'e of Mr. Cunniii^'ham, at West Diirliaiu. Here ho resided 
with his father until he arrived at the age of fifteen, when his lime was 
given him, and in the course of a year or two he retvirned to Essex, Cl, 
where he learned the blacksmith trade with his uncle, Mr. Pratt, and com- 
menced the study of vocal music with a Mr. Oilman. At the age of 
twenty-one he came back to Durham and married Julia, daughter of 
Captain John Newell. In December, 1828, at the solicitation of Henry 
Osborn and Orrin Kobinson, who were appointed a committee for that 
purpose by the people of this village, he sett ed here, where he conducted 
the business of blaeksmithiug for many years. At the same time he con- 
tinued teaching and leading sacred music, to which a large portion of his 
time was given from the yt^ar 1809 to 1854. 

"This work was not confined to Windham, but his services as a singing 
teacher were sought and obtained by the people of the whole surrounding 
ountry. He taught at nearly all the towns of Greene, Schoharie and 
Albany Counties with great success and popularity. 

"After he came here he worshipped at the old church, two and a half 
miles west of this village, until the new church was built at the village in 
1834, he being one of the fifty-four who separated from the old chuch for 
the purpose of forming the new. He lead the music at the dedication of 
the new church and continued to led the choir for a large number of 
year-s. He also led the nmsic at the dedication of the Methodist church 
in this village. 

" His wife died in the winter of 1853, and in the fall of 1854 he married 
Mrs. Catharine Post Stannard, who is still living with her own children 
at We.stbrook, Ct. , at about the age of eighty-seven. 

" In the year 1823 he was commi.s,sioiiod by Governor Yates as an ensign 
in the Forty-ninth Kegiment of State Infantry, serving as such until the 
following year, when he received a commission from the same source, as 
lieutenant, and in 1825 he was promoted to the captaincy in the same 
regiment, receiving his commission from De Witt Clinton, who was then 
Governor of the State. In this capacity he served for a number of years. 
This regiment was then commanded by Colonel Piatt Adams, who is now 
over ninety, and still living, as we are informed, in New Y'ork City, in the 
possession of all his faculties. Captain Doty's last services as a music 
teacher, as our readers will well remember, were the conducting of an old 
folks' concert in this village, and at Durham, about eleven years ago, 
when he was near seventy-seven years of age. 

" His life was a complete and a successful one, and his feeble and famil- 
iar form will be missed for a long time by our people. His funeral was 
attended at the Presbjterian church in this village on Sunday last, the 
pastor. Rev. Mr. McCarthy ofliciating. In the course of his remarks he 
said : 

" ' It is seldom we are called to layout of sight one so venerable in years 
and whose presence on earth had been such a blessing to the community. 
Like a true patriarch, he died in the arms of his children and is laid by 
them to rest with his kindred. " Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full 
age, like as a shock of corn cometh in, in his season." 


" ' Soon after his conneotion with this church, he was ordained to the 
office of ruling elder, in which he was an example to the flock. Though 
a man of great natural modesty, he was a l(3ader in every laudable enter- 
prise in his community. As a music teacher he had few, if any, equals 
in all this region of country. Always affable and kind, he possessed the 
rare faculty of eliciting from his pupils both reverence and love, and 
many who were trained by him will receive the sad tidings of the death 
of their singing teacher with unaffected grief. 

His integrity, energy and prudence, his interest in the welfare of so- 
ciety, combined to make him one of the most valued citizens of his county. 
Whether we view him as a neighbor, as a friend, as a Christian, or as an 
officer in the Church of Christ, he was a model. 

'" One of our venerable townsmen remarked to me the other evening : 
"There is not a man that can say aught against Captain Doty." With- 
out an enemy in the world, yet he was a man of strong character and 
decided views. 

" ' Few men leave behind them such a blameless record, and it takes a 
long lifetime to build up such a character. He has left to you the rich 
heritage of a good name, "which is above all price." 

" Rev. (). B. Hitchcock, being present, said of the early history of the 
church building in which the services were held : 

" ' At the opposite end of the church, " over against " the pulpit, the 
central figure in the singers' gallery, was a man, like his associates, of 
Puritan origin, like them in many respects, in others unlike them all. 
The work to which he was divinely called, the office of praise to which 
the Master summoned him, required this — required that there should be 
in his constitution an element of almost feminine delicacy and sensibility 
to fit him for his work. Only so could he have been the leader that he 
was in the service of song. A certain grave humility, a certain rever- 
ential and subdued manner, a calm, deliberate expression, gave to that 
service its appropriate chararcter. His leadership could scarcely have 
been more impersonal if he had been a disembodied spirit. It had never 
happened to me to hear just such another voice as Captain Doty's when at 
its best. It fitted so perfectly the text of the hymn, so perfectly adapting 
itself to time and place. It was a haunting voice, like the chiming of the 
bells of Shandon, which followed the wanderer across land and sea. 
Those years of constant service were not to him, or to others, without a 
large reward. The peculiar gift entrusted to his keeping was full well 
employed. How many weary, care-laden souls has it cheered and com- 
forted, and in his turn he received a blessing to himself. The sermon 
might be unedifying, hissongof praise was not. The sermon might bring 
no comfort, the voice of praise brought healing on its wings. 

" ' The congregation, as he had known it, was all but gone, his brethern 
in the church were mostly in their graves, and in his own home, where his 
earthly life was centered, he had suffered much from death and loss. lie 
felt the loneliness of life that outlives its fellows. 

" ' His had become a pathetic figure upon the street. Later bereave, 
ments finished the work, completed the discipline of his life. The Ma.ster's 


voice said, " It is enough." His life went to its setting as sets the 
morning star, that goes not down l)ehind the darkened west, but melts 
away into the light of heaven. Even while we speak these words as our 

" Servant of God, well done 
Rest from they loved employ," 
his ear has caught the music of the skies, the singer has resumed his 
song. ' 

" Before the remains were taken from the church, the Rev. D'Orville 
Doty, pastor of Chi'ist's Church, Rochester, N. Y., son of the deceased, 
impressively recited the 'committal service.' "

Saybrook, Ct., Aug. 18, 1776: m. Westerlo, Albany Co., N. Y'., Jan. 9, 
1801, Keturah Long Tompkins, b. Dutchess Co., N. Y., May 30, 1782, 
dau. Elijah Tompkins and Barbara Church. 

Mrs. Doty's parents removed from Dutchess County, N. Y'., to Coey- 
mans, Albany County, N. Y' , while that region was still almost a wilder- 
ness. Her father was uncle of Daniel D. Tompkins, who was later 
Governor of the State of New Y'ork and Vice-President of the United 
States. The Tompkins family are said to have descended from John 
Tompkins, who came from the north of Ireland to the Plymouth Colony 
in its early settlement. The "Church" family also came from the Ply- 
mouth Colony to Dutchess County, N. Y. Mrs. Doty was a very intelli- 
gent and active woman, devoted to her husband and children. 

Mr. Doty's father had already engaged in the Revolutionary War be- 
fore the birth of his son, who was named after the patriot who had but 
just made one of the earliest and most brilliant successes of the war by 
the capture of the fortress at Ticonderoga with its garrison, and whose 
fame was already dear to all Connecticut patriots. 

Mr. Doty was bred a carpenter by trade, and removed with his parents, 
at the close of the war, at first to Stephentown, Rensselaer County, N. Y'., 
and later to Albany County. In 1810, he was living at Rensselaerville, 
Albany County, N. Y^, and removed from there to Nassau and again to 
Brainard, both in Rensselaer County. Later he engaged in the hotel busi- 
ness, and in 1821 kept a tavern well-known as the "Checkered Shed," on 
the Schenectady turnpike, two miles from Albany, and a few years later, 
in 1827, he kept a tavern about four miles from the city on the same 
road. He was an intelligent man, fairly educated for his time, but not 
successful in financial or business pursuits. About 1840 he removed to 
New York City and afterward resided with his son, and died at Brooklyn, 
N. Y"., April 4, 1861. His widow died two months later, June 19, 1861.

He was lame from an accident received in childhood, so that he went 
from his boyhood on crutches. He taught school at twenty years of age, 
and was then a man of deep thought and study, and being of a serious 
nature, and disposed to it by his early home training, he soon turned his 
thoughts to the ministry. He was ordained in 1815, and at once com- 
menced to preach the gospel. He labored at Nassau, Stephentown and 
other localities in Rensselaer County, N. Y., and 1820 was settled as 
pastor in Williamstown, Mass., and a year later at Chatham, Columbia 
County, N. Y. In 1822 he settled at Colebrook, where he afterwards re- 
sided . In 1835 he founded the Baptist church at Quaker Hill, Waterford, 
New London, Ct. He gave nearly fifty years of his life to the ministry, 
was well known throughout the State of Connecticut, and greatly respected 
for his learning and piety. He died at Colebrook, Ct., June 13, 18G4.

An obituary noticp published at the time of his death gives the follow- 
ing items: "Mr. Edward Doty departed this life at his residence in the 
town of Rome, Onedia County, N. Y., May 9th, 1871, aged seventy-four 
years and two months. He had been a great sufferer in body for a long 
time. For the past two years he was confined to the house, seeking some 
position in which he might rest, but without .success. He was born in 
Rensselaer County, N. Y"., and lived there for over forty years, and moved 
from there to the valley of Fish Creek, in the town of Rome, where he 
died. He was a man who read and thought much. Even within the past 
year we have found it edifying and instructive to converse with him. He 
was eminently a pious man, a great lover of libertj' and equal rights for 
the whole race of man. He gave one son to the cause of liberty in the 
late conflict — the Rebellion. Formerly a member of the Presbyterian 
Church, latterly his church relation was with the Wesleyans. He served 
this church .as a class leader for a number of years. He leaves a wife and 
one daughter and many friends who feel that they have lost much in his 
departure, but we believe that it is a gain to him. May his mantle fall 
upon the .son-in-law who will f^till keeps guard over the household bereft."

He was a farmer and removed from Durham to LeRoj', N. Y., but after 
that accounts conflict. From one branch of the family the report '.-omes 
that tlie parents and children have all died, and, it is supposed, without 
further descendants . Another report is to the effect that Edward Doty 
and family removed from Le Roy, N. Y., to the West, to Illinois or Mich- 
igan. Still another report comes that about 1874 they were living at 
Portage, N. Y. No corroboration of either report has been received.

Tlie following extract is taken from the Attica, N. Y., "News" of 

March 19, 1885 : 


"On Monday, March 16, 1885, ther« passed away from among us one 


who, by reason of lon^ rt'sideiico, wide acquaintance, and lioiioraltle 
character, deserves more than passing notice. 

" James S. Tolles was born in Orwell, Vt., September 1!>, ISOO. He was 
the eldest son of .John Tolles, who was the first settler in the town of 
Bennington, having moved into that town in February, 1S03, bringing 
with him his family, consisting of his wife and two children, the youngest, 
James S., then three years old. From that time till the day of his death 
he continued to reside in close proximity to the .spot upon which was 
built the little log cabin which was the home of his childhood. Without 
the advantages of schooling in youth, we find him a school teacher while 
yet a young man, having acquired, under circumstances most di.sconrag- 
ing, an education far in advance of his day. Possessing more than 
ordinary' ability, nothing but the loss of hearing, which calamity came 
upon him while yet a young man, prevented him Irom being called to 
positions of honor and trust. He was a man of clear convictions and 
sterling integrity, and his counsel and advice was often sought after by 
neigfhbors and friends. 

" He possessed a warm and .sympathizing heart, ready to respontl 
liberally to any call made upon him. Mr. Tolles first married, April 8, 
1824, Nancy Harriet Doty, sister of Kirtland Doty, lately deceased, and 
Leonidas Doty, Esq., of Buffalo, by whom he had niuf children. She died 
November 15, 1844. In 1846 he married Almeda L. Hamilton, who died 
in 1853. They had one son who died in February of the same year. He 
was again married to Mrs. Susan Brower in December, 1854. who sur- 
vives him. There was one child born to them, who died June liJ, 18li'2. 
Of eleven children born to him, eight died in childhood. One son, Ralph 
N., was killed in tiie War of the Rebellion, and his eldest son, George H. 
Tolles of Buffalo, N. Y., died a few years ago, leaving a son, Frank J. 
Tolles, grandson of the subject of this sketch. Only one child survives 
him, Mrs. Kate T. Norton, wife of A. L. Norton, now of Bi-nnington. 

"Although called upon in the mysterious w.ays of Provicience thus to fol- 
low a large family to the grave, and to often pass under the rod of afllic- 
tion, ho was never known to repine nor to doubt the goodness and lov(> of 
his Heavenly Father. For more than half a century he was a member of 
thf Presbyterian Church of this place, from which he was borne to burial 
in Fore-st Hill Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon. Tenderly and lovingly 
the aged patriarch was laid away to rest, in the conlident and assured 
hope of a blessed resurrection. Thus another link which binds the pres- 
ent generation with the past is sundered."

Leonidas Doty was born July Isf, 1812, on a small farm owned by his 
father, and situated about two miles west of the village of Prink (now 
Durham), Greene Countv, N. Y . Here he lived with his parents until he 
was nine years, when his father sold the little farm and moved to what 
was called the Holland Purchase, two miles west of the village of Attica 
in Genesee County, N. Y. Mr. Doty's memory of that " moving" is veiy 
vivid, and the story is interesting enough to be inserted here. 

No Pullman palace car attached to a sixty-miles-an-hour express train 
took them, it was simply one large lumber wagon, filled with household 
goods and a few farming implements of the primitive pattern, and 
a one horse wagon, in which were bestowed the mother and children, both 
wagons covered with white canvas, the fust drawn by two yokes of oxen 
headed by one of their horses, while the other horse was duly harnessed 
and attached to the family wagon. These made up the little procession 
which was soon to start for the far off, the •' Great West." 

Although comparatively few years had been passed on that little place 
in the Catskill Mountains, still, when the time came for them to leave, 
the last meal was eaten witli a peculiar sensation of sadness, and the eyes 
of the older ones were seen to be swimming in tears as the choking word 


of command came from the father to "go! " The first few hours were 
passed in silence. The older brother. Kirtland, a manlj^ boy of sixteen 
years, trudged on before driving the oxen headed by the hoist*, while the 
father followed closely in the rear, having an ey<; out to the welfare of the 
train . 

Our little "Leon," at that age, wasakeeii observer of cverytiiiug which 
took place. He remembers seeing the dear old mountains .slowly and 
gradually fade away in the east, as they pursued their toil.some journey 
to the unknown " West," and when they came in sight of Skaueateles 
Lake, the first great body of water his eyes had ever rested upon, sur- 
prise took entire possession of the lad, who had never before looked upon 
anything larger than the running brook which merrily leaped over the 
rocks and down the mountain side. But Cayuga Lake presented to him 
another wonder, and this was a bridge on-o mile long, which spanned the 
outlet, and as they rolled over thi.s astonishing piece of engine<Ting*the 
journey was shortened to the older ones by listening to the exclamations 
of the younger. The ([uestions of the boy were listened to with patience, 
and by the time the bridge was passed there was added to the youth's 
mind a large portion of valuable information. Uneventful was the 
journey until they had passed Batavia, when all at once they found them- 
selves " stuck in the mud," but they were released from their annoying 
condition by the friendly services of some neighboring farmers, who 
brought several yokes of oxen to their help. Finally, after a wearisome 
journey of thirty days, they arrived at their newlj- found home. A log 
house with a mock hospitality received the family under its shelter. A 
" dutch back " furnished a large fireplace, while a few long and uneven 
sticks, thicklj' plastered with mud, mads up the rude chimney. A door at 
either end of this cabin had been used by the familj^ who had previously 
lived there for dragging to its place the great back log, so necessary for 
keeping the fire, in those days almost destitute of lucifer matches. The 
house was full of wide cracks between the logs, which the boys filled up 
with mud. This, together with a bright fire on the hearth, gave comfort 
and tlie best of ventilation. This log house was their home for a year, at 
the expiration of whit^h time a very good frame house had been erected, 
the comfort of the family being thereby greatly increased. 

Soon after the household had arrived at their home the father bought 
a pig, and, as he supposed, had him safely housed in a stout pen, but the 
very first night the family were awakened by a great noise and a vocifer- 
ous squealing. The father and elder son rose hurriedly to invt>stigate the 
situation and to their amazement found that the pig had disapi)earod. 
Following the cries of the poor piggy they soon discovered him in the 
clutches of a liear. The enemj' was put to flight, and the i)ig restoreil to 
his pen. 

The new farm consisted of a very few acres only partly "cleared," but 
during the first year they had twenty acres ready for seed. They were, 
however, obliged to go twenty-five miles for the seed wheat, and then pay 
$3. 00 per bushel for it. It was sown in the Autum, and carefully watched 
through the long and cold winter ; the crop proved to be a good one ; thej 


cut it with sickles and soon had it ready for the market, but, to their 
great disappointment, it brought only thirty-one cents per bushel, and 
that, too, in " barter." At this time one bushel of wheat would buy one 
pound of tobacco. 

For eight years the market was low and the family had a struggle 
tp live. In the midst of it all the death of the wife and mother, who was 
the mainstay of the family, brought great grief upon them. After this 
trial they managed as best they could to carry on the household until the 
father married again. 

The new mother proved to be an excellent woman and fulfilled her 
arduous duties to the admiration and comfort of them all. It must be 
remembered that at this time they spun and wove the cloth for their 
garments, cut and made them after their own " fashion plates," and their 
shoes were also the work of their own hands. The educational advan- 
tages of the country at that day were rather jnimitive and hence limited, 
but the children were all blessed with what was called a " good common 
school education." 

When the youth reached his twentieth year, the farm being small and 
the father able to make simply his living, the boy determined that, with 
his father's consent, he would go away from home and endeavor to make 
his own living. He therefore went to Attica and engaged to work for 
the owner of the mills at $12.50 per month with board. The young man, 
with that spirit of fairness and justice which has characterized his whole 
carreer bargained to give his father $00 for his time until he should 
become of age. He remained at this post of labor more than two years. 
He then rented a farm adjoining his father's and worked that one year. 
At the end of this time, the spring of 1835, he found himself without a 
penny of debt and the happy possessor of $500. 

A trip to Michigan convinced him that there was no money in buying a 
farm which was nothing but a forest, so he returned to Attica, and with- 
out any knowledge of the business bought out a small grocery store and 
swung out his sign. His business grew to such an extent, and was so 
profitable, that he remained there twenty years. 

At the end of this time, 1850, he began the banking business in Attica. 
Dean Richmond, a man of wealth and notoriety, was associated with Mr. 
Doty, and the capital of the bank was $50,000. In 1800 Mr. Doty bought 
out Mr. Richmond, and moved the bank to Batavia. This proved to be a 
very wise thing, for it was now the beginning of the War of the Rebellion, 
and money being in great demand his discounts were largely multiplied, 
and his success was somewhat phenomenal. 

The bank was owned by Mr. Doty, who associated with him Mr. John 
Ward. At one time he also owned a one-half interest in the First 
National Bank at that place, but in 1880 he sold his interest at a premium 
of fifty-four per cent. As a general thing Mr. Doty always remained at 
home and was absorbingly devoted to his business. The only vacations he 
ever took were an extended trip in Europe, taking with him his family, 
and another through the West and South of our own country. The im- 


pression which these two jurrieye made upon him was to make liim all the 
more proud of his own native land. 

In the course of his long life he made an ample fortune, and to his 
praise it can be said, he did not keep it all. He bestowed many and valu- 
able gifts of money upon his own fandly and the families of his brothers 
and sisters, in all amounting to over a fiuarter million of dollars. At the 
birth of every grandchild he made a present of a thousand dollars, which 
he invested in mortga^'es and kept the accrued interest well invested. 
He was accustomed to say, he did this to show them what ^1,000 will 
earn in tweutj'-one years if " kept without spending." 

In 1876, Mr. Doty bought an elegant residence on Delaware avenue, in 
Buffalo, where he thereafter resided. He was an active vesti-yman in 
Trinity Church and a generous supporter of the services. Though he 
lived to be over seventj'-five years of age he was an active and energetic 
business man, and in hi.s palatial residence enjoyed the abundant wealth 
which was the honest fruit of a, self-sacrificing, econondcal and use- 
ful life. He died at Buffalo. N. Y., April 21, 1888.

The following obituary notice, published at the time; of his death, gives 
some account of his character and life : 

"The death of Deacon C. C. Day, of Avon, Ct., the father of Mrs. Dr. 
L. Darling, Jr., of this place, was terribly startling and heartrending to 
his own immediate family, and to the community in which he hail so long 
lived and labored, lie was deacon of the Congregational Church, and for 
thirty years had been the strv)ng arm upon which that society rested, and 
they feel keenly and sensibly the loss. 

"Mr. Day was a pure, Christian gentleman, a kind neighbor, and the 
sorrow evinced by all classes as they stood around his grave was touch- 
ing to those who witnessed these sad and mournful rites. His death was 
instantaneous, liaving been paralyzed l)y being in the circuit of three 
sejiarate divisions of the tremendous bolt that struck the lightning rod, 
and when it reached the point whore the insulator was not intact it left 
the rod and went into the building in three separate places, but the fhdd 
seemed to concentrate in the well room and porch on the back of the 

" He was on the porch and entering the well room where he was over- 
powered by this subtle and mysterious fluid. He met his death instan- 
taneously and without pain. 

" And this translation to the arms of the Saviour he loved and devoutlj' 
served for many years was in keeping with his Christian life. 

" Mr. Day was a man of wealth and inlluence, and he used both in the 
upbuilding of the Church and the cause of Christ, that to hira seemed the 
only great cause worth laboring for. He was as strict in all matters of 
busim^ss as in his everyday life, and he died with his business all clo.sed 
up. Spiritually he was jeady at any moment for any cross he might be 
called upon to bear, and was prepared to go as his Lord and Master might 
direct. In temporal matters his business was all arranged and was en- 
tirely free from anything that would require litigation. 

" He made his will and arranged his business so that no matter how 
quickly he passed away he was prepared.' 

" Mr. Day left an only daughter, the wife of Dv. Lewis Darling of this 
place. He had two .sons, Carlos E. and William D. Day, now in business 
in Brooklyn, N. Y. 

" These, with the wii lowed wife, constitute the members of the bereaved 
family, and to them he left his estate by will, to be eciually divided among

The following facts are taken from a memorial notice published at his 
death : 

"Dr. James Jewell, who died Thursday morning, May 15, 1884, at the 
residence of his sonin-law. H. L. Bassett, Catskill, N. Y., was born in 
West Durham, December 6, 1818. His father was the Rev. James Jewell, 
pastor of the Congregational Church of West Durham. Dr. Jewell 
received an academic education at Jefferson Academy. He studied med- 
icine with Dr. King of Cairo, N. Y., and attended lectures at Albany, 
N. Y., and at Castleton, Vt., at which latter college he graduated in 1844. 
The son of a country clergyman, it' is needless to say that he made his 
way to an education along the difficult path of self-support. 

" Working on a farm till he attained his majority, he afterward taught 
school to maintain himself until he should be qualified to enter his cho.sen

Erastus Day of Conesville, and began the practice of medicine in Ply- 
mouth, Chenango County, N. Y., where he remained two years. Thence 
he removed to Wellsbuig, Chemung County, where he practiced his pro- 
fession fourteen years. In the Spring of 18G0 he came to Catskill. Here 
he spent the last twenty-four years of his life. For about forty-four years 
he was an active and useful Christian. He was an eld r in the Presby- 
terian Church of Wellsburgh, and for several years superintended the 
Sabbath school of the Reformed Church in Catskill. A wife, daughter 
and three sons are left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and wise and 
loving father. During the time passed in Catskill. nearly a quarter of a 
century, he had, by diligence and skill, acquired quite an extensive prac-

tico. He was a close student, never relaxinj^ his studies, no matter how 
exacting his duties, and the result was shown by the success with which 
he coinl)atted the various diseases which flesh is heir to. 

"As a citizen he took a lively interest in all matters of local improve- 
ment, and, in the highest sense, was devoted to the interest of the coun- 
try. His gospel, that which controlled his life, was the doing of good to 
others, and this was done in th(! sinii)lest and most unostentatious man- 
ner. To this he added the dignity of Christian manhood and exemplifu'd 
its rule by living the Christian life. The memory of that consistt-nt life, 
as well as of his words of counsel and of cheer given to many when most 
needed, Avill not soon fade. 

"That he was truly a Christian physician was manifested by. one 
touching fact. Among those constituting the congregation at his funeral 
were many whose circumstances are such that they could be presi'ut only 
by a sacrifice of time which could iu)t fail to be felt. 

" Among other duties laid upon him during several years was that of 
attending excxminations at the Free School. In recognition of his faith- 
fulness to this duty the teachers and pupils of the school united in pre- 
paring a most beautiful floral tribute. 

" Though an invalid for many years he performed all his duties until 
within three months of his death, and it was sad to see how, one l)y one, 
he was compelled to give them up. Late in April he w^-nt to Philadelphia, 
there to consult eminent physicians. But they could give no hope, and 
after a short time he returned home, only to enter upon his rest. 

" The funeral services, held in the Reformed Church, of which he was 
a member, were conducted by Kufus Clarke, I). IX , of Albany, assisted 
by George A. Howard, D. D., of the Presbyterian Church, and the llev. 
Edmund Lewis, of the M. E. Church. Dr. Clarke, though a stranger to 
Dr. .Jewell, spoke most kindly and appropriatelj\ Those who assisted 
him had long been personal friends of the deceased. Many of the friends 
of the one who had fallen asleep gathered to pay to him the last direct 
tribute of respect. 

" The rcmiains were Ituried at West Durham on Sabbath afternoon by 
the side of his parents" )>o(li(!s. wiiii-h have rested in that quiet cemetery 
\'ov about sixty years. 

" Resolutions of respect to his memory were adopted by the Medical 
Society of Greene County, N. Y., at their meeting in Catskill. N. V.. June 
10. 1884." 

Mrs. Jewell was the worthy daiighter of worthy parents and every way 
fitted to be the wife of such a husband. Her life was quir't and unobtru- 
sive, yet her influence was felt by a large circle of friends and relatives.

]SIi-s. Doty is a sister of lion. Lucius Kobiuson, formerly Comjitroller 
and Governor of New York State. 

Mr. Doty, like his father, became a blacksmitii, and has carried on a 
prosperous business at Windham Centre, N. Y., for many years. lie is a 
man of intelligence and influeuce, greatly respected in that commuuiiy. 
Like his father, too, he has devoted much time to the study and practice 
of church music, and in commemoration of his fifty years of service as 
member and leader of the choir of the Presbyterian Church of Windham, 
January 20, 188.5, ho was prtisented with a gold watch by the people of the 
church and village. In the course of an address made at this presenta- 
tion by Rev. Benjamin Parsons, pastor of the chun-h, he paid the follow- 
ing fitting tribute to Mr. Doty's services and character: 

" Let mo assure you that our people most profoundly appreciate your 
long-continued and invariable fidelity in the discharge of your duties as a 
citizen, and your courtesy, patience, promptness and perseverance as a 
member of the choir for twenty years as its leader, as well as the countless 
acts of kindness which constitute the service which for fifty years, and 
without other remuneration than your own consciousness of well-doing, 
yo'i have rendered in their behalf. When death has entered any of our 
dwellings you, whatever and however pressing your employments at the 
time, have at once dropped them and devoted your time and your musical 
talents to the work of ministering for the consolation of the bereaved and 
afflicted. I am glad to bear witness to our high appreciation of your 
ready co-operation in every good word and work, and your gentleness, 
patience, promptitude and assiduity, and your kindness in the church and 
the outside community are among the choicest things which lie treasured 
up in our memory." 

Mr. and Mrs. Doty celebrated their golden wedding in 1892, of which 
the following pleasant report appeared in the ■Journal" of Windham. N. 
Y'., May T), 18!)3: 

"Tlie fiftieth anniversary of tiie marriage of Mr. and Jlrs. G. II. 
Doty was celebrated at their hou-^e in Windham, on the 28th ult. 
About thirty guests Avere present, nearly all relatives of the host and 
hostess. Their four children, an unbroken circle, with three grandchil- 
dren, wore all together at the old homestead on the occasion, viz. : Mrs. 
J. H. McKce, Mr. and :Mrs. C. C. Peck. Messrs. L. li. and W. A. Doty 
and wives, Masters Lucius and Percival Doty and Miss Alice Doty McKee. 
llev. J. II. McKee and son Harry were necessarily absent. There were 
also present the two sisters and only remaining lirother of Mr. Doty. Mrs. 
J. N. D. Ilarvey, of Brooklyn. Mrs. G. W. I'otter and husband, and Rev. 
Wm. D'Orville Doty, D. D., Rector of Christ Church, Rochester, with his 
daughter Marion. Among the guests were Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sted- 
man, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Newell, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bagley, Mr. and 
Mrs. Charles Brockett and daughter Edna, and Miss Katharine Edwards, 
of Catskill. The Rev. C. C. Thorne. the honored pa.stor of Mr. and Mrs. 


Doty, was present, and added murh to tlie enjoyment of the occasion by 
well-chosen remarks following the collation, which was spread at the 
good old-fashioned hour of eight, to imitate the proceedings at the wed- 
ding feast fifty years ago. Mr. Thorne called the attention of those 
present to the fact that it was during the administration of William Henry 
Harrison that this couple were married, and that the grandson, Benjamin 
Harrison, was now occupying the Presidential chair. His remarks were 
followed by the reading of a poem by Mrs. C. C. Peck. 

" Letters of regret and congratulation were read by Hon. C. C. Peck; 
one from Miss Kitty Van Dyck. daugliter of the clergyman who officiated 
at the marriage, one from Burrit S. Stone, E.sq., of Brooklyn, and one 
from Miss Nellie Robinson, daughter of the late Governor Lucius Robin- 
son. The serious illness of his wife detained Colonel D. C. Robinson 
and his sister at home. 

" Rev. William D'Orville Doty then spoke of the marriage of his brother, 
of the guests present on that occasion and their appearance in his boyish 
eyes as, seated on a little stool in the corner, he reviewed them. He 
spoke warmly and affectionately of Captain Eli P. Robinson and wife, 
father and mother of the bride, and Captain William Doty and wife, the 
parents of the groom. At the close of his remarks he pronounced the 
nuptial benediction over the long-wedded pair. 

"Many valuable gifts were presented and sent by absent friends with ex- 
pressions of warm and kindly feeling. Roses and carnations were sent 
from a distance, together with a spray of orange blossoms for the bride 
of fifty years. 

" After a pleasant evening of social intercourse the company sang to 
the tune of Gratitude, 'My God, how endless is Thy love,' etc. Rev. 
Mr. Doty then read appropriate passages of scripture, and Rev. Mr. 
Thorne offered prayer, after which all joined in the Doxology, ' Praise 
God.' etc." 


Hark, the joyous peal of bells; 

On the air it falls and swells, 

At the closing of the day — 

The golden bells of Memory. 

Half a century ago. 

Pealed out the rhythmic flow 

Of the merry wedding bells: 

And the wizard, Memory, holds 

Back the curtain, and unfolds 

Pictures to our backward view 

Of eighteen hundred forty-two. 
The square front room of the Captain's home, 

Aglow with candlelight: 
By twilight's gloom the guests have come— 

The scene is gay and bright. 
The bride. O, she was fair to see 

In her silken robe of gray 
With a satin sti-ipe, and coat sleeves tight — 

Too fair to give away. 
O, she was little and sweet of face. 
And her dress was trimmed with white blonde lace. 

84 TllK DOTY-DOTKN FAM11>^'. 

The groom, ahick I wore solemn ItlaeU, 

But of manly beauty there was no lack. 

Up ro.s<> the lieverend Van Dyck — 
The world has seldom seen liis like: 
l?rielly but strongly he tied the knot 
That never loosen<'d a single jot 

Through the ebb and flow of years. 

The light of smiles, the fall of tears; 

Through worse or better, .sickness, health, 

Prosperity, or lack of wealth. 

As this dear pair draw near old age, 
The close of Life's short pilgrimage. 
May golden rays light up the way 
That leadeth to the closing day. 
]May Life's calm evening give them rest. 
And children's children call them blest: 
And when the allotted years have rolled. 
Their glad feet tread the streets of gold.

Originally intending to follow a bu^-iness career, his early edueation 
was obtained in the schools and academies of the neighborhood. While 
engaged as a bookkeeper in a commission house in New York City he be- 
came personally interested in religion and in the Episcopal Church, and 
received the rite of confirmation at the hands of the Bishop of New York, 
Dr. Horatio Potter, in the Chunih of St. John Baptist, of whicih the Rev. 
C. R. Duffle, D. D., was rector. At the instigation of a very dear friend, 
the Rev. Gordon M. Bradley, then rector of Christ Church, Quincy, Nor-

sacred ministry. 

In 1859, after due preparation, he entered Kenj^on College, Gambler, 
Knox County, Ohio, where he was graduated B. A. in 1862. In October 
of the same year he became a candidate for holy orders in the diocese of 
New York, and was matriculated as a student of the General Theological 
Seminary. Here he passed the Junior year, but in consequence of ill 
health he accepted a position as lay assistant to the Rev. William Stevens 
Perry, rector of St. Stephen's Church, Portland, Me. 

With Mr. Perry he continued his course of preparation for orders, 
availing himself of the opportunity of prosecuting his studies in Exegesis 
and Hebrew with the Rev. Thomas Mather Smith, D. I)., for many years 
professor in the Theological Seminary of Ohio, who was at that time an 
inmate of the household of Mr. Perry, his son-in-law. While in Portland 
Mr. Doty received his M. A. from his Alma Mater, and on occasion of a 
visit to Lennoxville, Canada East, he received the same degree, causa, 
honoru from Bishops' College, the church university of Lower Canada. 
Having been transferred from the diocese of New York to that of ]\Ias- 
sachusetts, Mr. Doty completed his studies for orders under the direction 
of the Rev. John Singleton Copley Greene, M. A., M. D., rector of Grace 
Church, Newton, Mass., to whom he rendered assistance in parochial 

On the 20th of June, 1864, he was admitted to the Holy Order of 
Deacons by the Rt. Rev. Mantou Eastburn, D. D., LL. D., at Grace 
Church, Newton, Mass., the Rev. William Stevens Perry (afterward 
Bishop of Iowa) preaching the sermon. He immediately became assist- 
ant minister to the Rev. Mr. Greene at Newton, where he remained until 
Sept. 1, 1864, when he accepted a call to become assistant minister of 
St. Paul's Church, Boston, the Rev. Dr. William R. Nicholson, rector. 
While thus engaged opportunity was afforded him to attend the theo 
logical lectures of the celebrated Edward A. Park, D. D., LL. D., at the 
Andover Seminary. On the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Jan. 25, 
1866, Mr. Doty was admitted to the priesthood by the Bishop of Massa- 
chusetts, Dr., Eastburn, his old friend, the Rev. Gordon M. Bradley, 
preaching the sermon. 

On Christmas day, 1867, he assumed the rectorship of a new mission, 
All Saints'. Brooklyn, L. I., to which he had been called. In this field of

labor Mr. Doty built a church iiud gathered a large aud attached congre- 
gation, and remained at his post, though again and again called to larger 
and more remunerative positions. Family reasons at length required a 
removal to a more healthy location, and on Easter day, 1871, Mr. Doty 
entered upon the rectoiship of St. Paul's Church, Waterloo, in the diocese 
of Central New York. After a nuuistry of singular success, in which the 
parish enjoyed unexampled prosperity, a chapel was built, several mis- 
sionary points were opened, endowments were secun d and large classes 
presented for confirmation. 

On the first Sunday in Advent, 1877. j\[r. Doty began his work as 
rector of Christ Church, Rochester, in the diocese of Western New York, 
in which position he has displayed the same energy, success and devo- 
tion which have characterized his previous rectorates. Here he has freed 
the parish from a burdensome debt, and has attached to himself and to 
the church a large and constantly increasing congregation. Mr. Doty 
has been a deputy from the diocese of Western New York to the General 
Convention in 1880 and 1883 and for five years was the editor of the 
diocesan newspaper. In June, 1884, he received tlie degree of doctor in 
divinity from Griswold College, Davenport, Iowa. 

This sketch of the Rev. Dr. Doty's life would be incomplete without the 
addition of the following well-deserved testimonials, which, though pri- 
marily referring to his rectorate at Waterloo, are equally aj)propriate, as 
indicating his whole nnnistry and his standing as a Christian nuin and 

At a meeting of the rector, warden and vestry of St. Paul's Church, 
Waterloo, held Nov. 20, 1877, the following communication was received 
froiu the rector : 

St. Paul's Pakism Rectokv. 
Waterloo, N. Y., Nov. 15, 1877. 
To the Wardens and Vestry of St. Paul's Church : 

Dear Bhetiiuen — It is with intense pain that I liereby offer you my 
resignation of the rectorship of St. Paul's, Waterloo, to take effect after 
the services on St. Andrew's day next. In parting from you, my dear 
brethren, and from the parish you so faithfully serve, I would most grate- 
fully record my thanks for the generous and never-varying kindnesses 
poured upon me and mine during my happy rectorship of nearly seven 
years. Never has a pastor been more highly favored than myself, and it 
is a matter of great satisfaction to me that, in looking over this period, I 
cannot recall a moment when there has been even so much as a misunder- 
standing between my beloved people and myself. All has been peace, 
harmony and love, and I do assure you that nothing but a solemn and 
imperative sense of duty could ever move me to reliiKiuish my j)resent 
united and beloved parish. 

St. Paul's, Waterloo, will always hold a strong place in my affections, 
and will ever be coimected with the holiest associations of my nunisterial 


May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Sou and the IIolj- 
Ghost be amongst you and remain with you always. 
Sincierely and devotedly yours, 

William D'Okville Doty. 

After which, on motion of Judge liadley, the following preamble and 
resolutions were adopteil : 

Whereas, our rector, the Rev. Wm. D'Orville Doty, has presented his 
resignation of tht* rectorship of this parish; therefore 

Resolved, That we, the wardens and vestry of St. Paul's Church, 
Waterloo, N. Y., on behalf of the parish, do receive and accept said 
resignation, not from choice, but as we would any other afflicted chastise- 
nrent beyond our control, bowing in Christian faith to the Great Head of 
the Church, " whose ways are not our ways," but who always d 'cs right. 

Residved, That while we profoundly' regret our loss, we are comforted 
in knowing that he goes to a thriving, beautiful city, with an apprecia- 
tive population, where he can have a larger sphere for exerting his active 
energies, and where he and his beloved family can embrace greater 
opportunities of social enjoyment and be beloved by more, but not better, 
than here, trusting that his new wardens and vestiy may be as harmonious 
and happy with their new rector as we have been with our old one, and 
that when duty shall call him elsewhere his departure will be as deeply 
and universally regretted there as it now is here. 

Resolved, That we congratulate the parish of Christ Church, Rochester, 
in securing the services of one so discreet, so learned, so devotnd to his 
high calling, and so accomplished in all the duties and relations of his 
profession, in the church and elsewhere, one always a christian gentle- 
men, and ever reafly to meet his wardens and vestry more than half way 
in every good work. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be entered on our records, and a cer- 
tified copy be delivered to Mr. Doty. 

[Extract from Waterloo Observer, Nov. 21, 1877.1 
The Rev. W. D'Orville Doty has accepted a call to Christ C^hurch, 
Rochester, and assumes the duties of his new position on Sunday, the 2nd 
of December next. 

Upon the high festival of Easter, now nearly seven years ago, Mr. Doty 
bef'ame the rector of St. Paul's Church, Waterloo, entering upon his 
duties, as successor to one, who, dearly b'doved by his people, left a parish 
that felt a sense of great loss in his departure. In the vigor of early man- 
hood, earnest, enthusiastic, with heart and mind fully consecrated to his 
great work, the new rector began his labors, and in a space of time incred- 
ibly brief, won for himself the highest esteem and Brrdent affection of his 
flock. The love so soon and happily gained time has only served to make 
more deep and lasting. Courteous and charitable, with a spirit quick to 
comprehend the public weal and ever ready to give his time and talents 
generouslj^ towards its promotion, his influence spread far beyond the 
limits of his own congregation, and he obtained, and has ever preserved, 



the thorough respect and regard of the entire community, and now that, 
called by an imperative sense of duly to another sphere of labor and 
usefulness, he is about to sever the connection so long and happily exist- 
ing as rector between him and his parish, and, as a citizen, between him 
and the community in which he is so greatly esteemed, we cannot forbear 
to extend to him our heartfelt wishes for his future well being, and the 
assurance of the universal regret felt at his departure. 

[From The Church Press, May 21, 1887.] 
On the first Sunday in Advent, 1877, the Rev. W. Doty commenced hie 
labors as the rector of Christ Church, Rochester, in the of 
Western New York. Several times he has been a delegate of this diocese 
to the general convention, and for five years was the [editor of the diocesan 
church paper. In June, 1884, he received the degree of doctor in divinity 
from Griswold College, Ohio. Dr. Doty posseses great energy of character, 
unusual executive ability and practical common sense, and wherever he 
has labored church growth has followed his rise and earnest ministrations. 
His ability as an efficient rector, his earnest and untiring labors, his be- 
nevolent disposition and sincerity of manner, have caused him to be much 
Vjeloved by the parishes to whom he has ministered. 

The Rev. Dr. Doty's interest for the temporal and spiritual welfare of 
the young has induced many to seek his counsel anrj to follow his advice, 
and for his paternal interest in their welfare they ardently love him. No 
young clergyman who becomes his assistant can fail to be greatly bene- 
fitted by learning from his example how to wisely perform parochial 
duties and prevent parish difficulties; for when called to be the rector of 
a parish he will know how to avoid a course of parochial administration 
that would hinder his usefulness, however brilliant as a preacher, if des- 
titute of tact or of common sense. Dr. Doty is a sound churchman, and 
without deviating from "the old paths" respecting ceremonial, adopts 
what will add to the solemnity and impressiveness of luiblic worship, and 
deepen devotion in the worshippers in Jehovah's Holy Temple. His sur- 
pliced choir is a model of the demeanor that should characterize those 
who lead the praise offered to the Triune God during the other services 
of public worship. Dr. Doty is a good reader and an impressive preacher. 
He does not " whine the prayers," nor vocally obscure the lessons, nor 
preach as if his audience were up in the roof of the church, nor down in 
its basement: but by a natural common-sense tone he causes his hearers 
to realize that ho is preaching directly to those before him. The attend- 
ance at the Lenten services were larger than ever before, and the congre- 
gations have become so large that the vestry contemplate the enlargement 
of the present edifice, or the erection of a new church.

Alanson Doty is desc^ribed to have been, like all his brothers, of tall 
stature and heavy frame. He was a farmer and removed from Ni.agara 
County, N. Y., about 1832, to Michigan, where he afterward resided, in 
Washtenaw County, at ftist in the town of I'ittsfield, latcu- in Ann Arbor, 
and thi'n in Northlleld, where he died. He was of genial disi)ositiou and in 
comfortable circumstances, leading a pure and upright life, and greatly 
respected for his many amiable qualities. 

An obituarj' notice published at the time of his death says: " Alanson 
Doty died at the residence of his son, in Northfleld. January 23d. 1800. 
aged sixty-five years and eight months. Mr. Doty was one of the early 
settlers of Michigan, and was widelj' and well known. He came to this 
State in the fall of 1832. and, with the exception of a few of his later 
years, has resided here. His character as a citizen, neighbor, friend, and, 
above all, as a Christian, needs no eulogy. In this community he has been 
well known for years; in business relations as an honorable and consis- 
tent gentleman, one whose dealings with his fellow-men were ever con- 
scientious and upright; in his social life as kind, genal and affectionate, 
respected by his acquaintmces. loved by his friends and revered by his 
family. His illness was typhoid fever, was protracted and full of suffering, 
yet throughout it all he showed the utmost patience and trust. 

" It was reserved for the mouths of his life to intensify and fully 
reveal the strength and steadfastness of his Christian faith. Through 


much of trial in a long and varied life it had been an anchor and a shield 
to him, and as the end drew near his suffering was relieved, his pain and 
weariness soothed by the glorious certainty it gave him of rest and 
reward in ' that house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens.' "

They removed West shortly after their marriage, stopping first in Ohio, 
but in the latter part of 1835 removed to Washtenaw County, Michigan, at 
first in the town of Pittsfield, but in 1837 they settled permanently in Ann 
Arbor, where they subsequently resided. He was a farmer of fair means, 
of very tall and powerful frame, physically very strong and of uniformly 
good health, always interested in everything that added to the educational 
facilities of his town and to its general well being. He lived to see the 
small village which he chose for his residence grow to be a flourishing 
town with a universitj' of national repute, with manufactories and other 
evidences of business thrift. 

He was fortunate in having a wife whose intellect was of a high order, 
and with nature and character rare and beautiful. With her help and co- 
operation their children received their utmost care and devotion in their 
younger years, and were well educated and fitted for the struggles of life. 
Mrs. Hannah Doty died at Ann Arbor, Michigan, September 6, 1882. He 
died also at Ann Arbor, February 27, 1884, aged over eighty-one years. 

The following extracts are from an obituary notice published shortly 
after his death, and from the pen of one of his talented daughters. 

" For nearly half a century he was one of the most familiar figures in 
the region where he lived. He was a man of genial nature, great kindli- 
ness of heart, credulous of good, incredulous of evil, helpful to those in 


need of holp, stable, conslaut and generous in tlie character of relative, 
neighbor and friend. 

" In his young nianliood lie was of such athletic physique that it is said 
of him, by one wlio knew him well, that ' nothing but a deer could outrun 
him.' His strength was spared to him in a remarkable degree, until the 
death of his wife, which occurred September (J, 1882. Then for the first 
time his faithful steps began to show signs of failing. 

" His spirit was buoyant as his body. lie was fond of mirth, full of 
anecdote, with a wit bright as lightning, yet never used to destroy. He had 
the happy power of making the simplest duty an attractive thing. He 
never harmed in thought or deed thn humblest of God's creatures. 

'• He knew nature well, not alone from books, but from his own fine 
perceptions and habits of thoughtful observation. His house, in which he 
lived forty-six years -' Heart's Content'— -and whicii was burned just a year 
before his death, wasalittleout of thecity, and he traveled many thousands 
of miles back and forth over the familiar road, year in and out, on his 
round of daily du ies; yet he was wont to say, he never went that routine 
path without seeing something nt!W and interesting. 

" He was an eager reader, and kept, almost to the last, tlie freshest in- 
terest in all the active affairs of the world. His best energies were given 
to the education of his children, and he spared nothing for their advance- 

" The thought of death was to him by no means unfamilair nor unwel- 
come. He said, ' to me death is but the opening of a door.' In his last 
sickness there was much suffering. But, as with the patience of his entire 
life, it was all borne with meekness and without complaint. 

" His children survive him. Out of affection and reverence for him 
they could never go far from him nor stay long away without seeing him, 
and they were all present at hi.s funeral."

and mother of Du.ine Doty of Pullman, 111., Helen

they suljsequently lived. Mrs. Clara Doty Bates was well known 
as an authoress and published a number of volumes of poetry and 
of works adai)ted to the instruction and entertainment of the 
young. Many of works were illustrated, the designs being 


furnished by her sister, Mrs. Finlcy. Mr. Bates is also a writer for 
the press and author of several popular dramas. In private life 
Mrs. Bates was a mo,st lovable woman and companion and en- 
deared herself to a large circle of friends. Duiing the World's 
Fair at Chicago she had charge of the Children's Building, and 
made a most amiable and charming hostess there. She d. Chi- 
cago, Oct. 14, 1895. The great esteem in which she was held is 
shown in the extracts here given from the notices of her death 
which appeared in the leading Chicago newspapers. 

[From the Chicago Tribune of Oct. 15, 1895.] 

After suffering severe physical pain for five years Mrs. Clara 
Doty Bates died yesterday morning at the Newberry apartments. 
No. 823 Dearborn avenue. 

This afternoon at2:i)0 o'clock there will be a service of tribute by 
her friends held at the home of Mrs. John C. Cooidey, No . 020 Divis- 
ion street. The Rev. Mr. Mercer of the New Jerusalem Church, 
Mrs. Wilmarth representing the Fortnightly Club, Mrs. Coonley, 
Dr. Leila G. Bedell, and others will speak. This will not be a 
f imeral service. It is the wish of Mr. Bates and his friends that 
the service be as cheerful as possible. 

This evening the remains will be taken to Ann Arbor, Mich. 
The funeral service will be held Wednesday at the home of Mrs. 
Bates' sister, Mrs. Homer P. Finley, and burial will be at Ann 

Early in life Mrs. Bates showed decided literary tastes of the 
highest order. When only 10 years of age her writings received 
approval. She soon developed a marked faculty for writing poetry, 
prose, and short sketches appealing to Juvenile readers. Her work 
was not wholly confined to writing for children: occasionally she 
contributed to periodicals read by the learned and cultured classes. 

But it was as a writer of stories and sketches to please the litlte 
ones that Mrs. Bates was best known. She was a frequent con- 
tributor to St. Nicholas, The Youth's Companion, and Golden 
Days, and a regular contributor to Wide Awake. As late as last 
September The Youth's Companion published a poem of hers. Her 
literary ability was first recognized by Charles G. Leland while he 
was editor of Graham's Magazine. Her efforts frequently appeared 
in the pages of Godey's Lady's Book and Peterson's Magazine. She 
was a lover of nature and wrote that those who read might profit 
by it. 

The first book published by Mrs. Bates was a work for children, 
" Blind Jakey." It was a Sunday school book and had a wide sale, 
"^^i^sop's Fables in Verse" was her most successful work. 
"Heart's Content," another of her books, was so called in honor 
of her childhood home in Ann Arbor, tlie name of which was 
" Heart's Content." Her last published volume was a collection 
of verse, " From Heart's Content." 

Mrs. Bates had resided in Chicago for the last ten years. She 
was an earnest worker in everything pertaining to the elevation and 
improvement of her sex. She was the first vice president of the 
Fortnightly Club last year and took an active interest in the work 
of all women's clubs. She was the hostess at the children's library 
room in the Woman's Building at the W^orld's Fair. She was 
at her post every day during the continuance of tlie Fair, and re- 
ceived mothers and little ones from all parts of the world. Two 
years previous to the opening of the Fair she worked to gather to- 
gether a model children's library and succeeded in doing far more 
than she expected. She instalh^d the library herself, and at her 
solicitation nearly every publishing house in the world contribute(l 


to it. Pul)lishcrs exliiliitcd for the enliKhtcniiiciit of the childivii 
the process of book and magazine nial<ing fioin the time the manu- 
scril>t was received \mtil tiie book or periodical was ready for the 
reader's hands. The Youth's t'ompanion .sent for exhibition its 
oi-iginal bound file of the first volume of the publication, as well as 
a bound file of the hist volume, for the purpose of sliowing the 
wonderful advance in the methods of turning out great newspapers, 
as well as their im])roved appearance, when modern appliances are 
used. She was awardi'd di])lomas and a medal for her services by 
the Committee of Awartis of the World's Fair. 

Mrs. Bates presided Children's day during the sessions of the 
Literary Congress of the World's Fair and devised the work and 
programme of the day. 

Mrs. Bates' name is known and revered in every household in the 
country where the best character of literature for children is read. 
It has been said of her that she has touched the hearts of more 
children than any writer. She was a great lorer of evei-j-thing 
noble and elevating and beautiful in character and person. To 
know her was to admire and love her, and in her death the litera- 
ture of the West, and especially of Chicago, has suffered an irrepar- 
able loss. 

Before marriage Mrs. Bates was Miss Clara Doty. Twenty-six 
years ago she married INIorgan Bates, and theii- life together had 
been a singularly happy one. She leaves no children. For the 
last few years she had practically been an invalid, but she never 
ceased indulging in her chosen life woik until absolutely comj^elled 
to do so a few months ago. 

[From the Chicago Times-Herald, Oct. 15, 1895.] 
Before women who have never been journalists in the true sense 
and never will be began the follj' of parading their attempts to })e. 
a young woman was doing editorial work in the office of a Detroit 
newspaper. Her name was Clara Doty. To-day Morgan Bates, 
blessed in her companionship, mourns a wife. 

Several years hence, when archivists in what women did and did 
not talk about are gathering th*Mr facts together, many, when the 
record shall be published, will find for the first time the name of 
Clara Doty Bates. Not that the name itself is obscure. There is 
no hearth to which St. Nicholas and like periodicals go that will 
not mourn for the author of so nuich that abides in the memory of 
childhood, formless but yet substantia], story, sketch, poem, all 
gentle, sweet, melodious : the little world, its engaging conceits and 
fair inventions that 

* * * softly move along, 
A sweet proc^ession, without care or weight 
Like di.sembodied song. 
Clara Doty Bates jtassed from the post of responsible reviewer 
on a daily newsjiaper to writing of literature for children, and to the 
latter she carried the line ecjuijjment of the former. Of sound 
ac(juirements, she was sound of ct)nscience : sound of conscience, 
she knew no compromise with the morbid : and as for the worse 
than morbid, of that alone she was intolerant. Her love of child- 
hood was her passion, her pain and her ccstacy. Madonna-like in 
face, beauty permeated all her work, and it was a ])liilosophic de- 
velopment of this passion that led her to undertake an unprece- 
dented task, formation of an ideal library for children. The Chil- 
dren's Building at .lackson Park was her daylight honu' while iteu- 
dured. Many of the daintiest features of the programmes thex'e 
were of her devising. Few ever saw to know who she was ; so 


modest, withal a personality, full, nevertheless, of energy and en- 
dowed with rare executive force in a frail body. 

With the children's plays, their library and their gymnasium, 
Clara Doty Bates associated a real school of art. Only an artistic 
organization like hers could have seen the natural harmonization of 
play and study with life, health, normal growth along even lines, 
and it was part of her ambition so to write and so to influence life 
about her that art, in its highest spirit, should surround childhood, 
not to weary with abstractions nor vex with paradoxes, but to bless 
with love of beauty and truth, for that is the supreme blessing of 
art, though pedants write pyramids to prove it more or less. 

The library then gathered together has been kept Intact and will 
be placed in time in the building to be somewhere as a memorial of 
woman's part in the (^olumbian Exposition. Years hence, when 
this shall be, many who are children to-day will pause before a 
well-beloved name, there to be duly written. Many who never saw 
the one who carried much into their early lives will say with the 
poet of Giotto's chapel : 

Here dedicate to art and poetry 
Her simple chapel stands, and painted here 
tpon its walls a pictured life we see, 
Inspired by feeling, earnest and sincere, 
What faith, what simple dignity and grace 
Art since hath lost are in this cloistered place. 
From the same of later date : 


[Written on the occasion of the funeral of Mrs. Clara Doty Bates 
at Ann Arbor, Oct. 16, 1895.] 
Passing along the pleasant grove my listening spirit heard 
A stream of music coming from some dear leaf-hidden bird; 
I know it was a song of love, a strain of heavenly bliss, 
Caught from the purer world above and scattered over this ; 
We cannot see the flinger 

Throwing music to the throng, 
We cannot see the singer, 
But we listen to the song. 

Passing along the path of life I listened to a strain 
A spirit bird was singing which cheered my heart again ; 
It called me up toward it from the somber valley's care 
To the calm, serener beauty of the pure, unsullied air ; 
We may not see the ringer. 

But the bell brings out the throng ; 
We cannot see the singer. 
But we listen to the song. 

I never saw this singer, but I listened to her strain ; 
I only know she did not give her melody in vain. 
And if there come a silence and we think the singer gone, 
Yet somewhere in God's universe she still keeps singing on ; 
So know, O music-bringer. 

That the toiling, traveling throng 
Who cannot see the singer, 
Still keep listening to the song. 
Ann Arbor, Mich. Kev. J. P. Hutchinson. 

I cannot better close this notice than with the following most 
beautiful tribute of Eugene Field, made more affecting by the fact 
that he himself was lying on a sick bed and survived her only a few 
days : ,

sweetness. For many mouths Clara Doty Bates has suffered wilh 
a malady from which recoverj- is impossinle; within the lasi week 
eternal release from human suffering has seemed close at hand; 
perhaps when you read tliese words thr) death-angel will have sum- 
moned the weary, but patient soul to its last rest. It is with a 
heart full of sorrow that we speak of the separation that bereaves 
the world and us of so good and dear a friend. 

Clara Doty Bates has so very many friends that one could almost 
say ttjat she is universally beloved. Who that has read her sweet 
little tah's and i)oems, full of the optimism ( f faith, of hope and of 
charity, has not been attracted to this kindly nature by inlluence 
stronger and teni:erer than those of admiration? But to have 
known her face to face, to have known the magic of her gracious 
personality, to have known the sympathies in which her heart 
abouiifled, to have known the works at which her hands were con- 
stantly enjployed, to have seen and felt the purity, the simplicitj-, 
the loyalty, the compassion and the valor of this great nature — 
this was tlu! inestimable fortune of us, too few, who shared her 

One who for many years has shared wit h us the gracious com- 
panionship, s;iys now of Mrs. Bates: " Siie was always for others; 
alvra^-s unselfish, always loving, gentle and devoted. In the 
heroic endurance of awful pain and the stiielding of others from 
even the sorrow she knew would coujc from a knowledge of her 
malady, she has gone on silently, smilingly, idieerfully. Such bravery 
Is but natural in one whose earli-'st ancestors in this country 
stepped from the .Mayflower, and whose later ancestor was Kthan 
All(Mi. ^he had Puritan blood in direct line on her father's side, 
while from the motluMS came the stately dignity of the Virginia 
families of [>awrence and Washington 1 need not tell of her own 
sweet nature: wi; all knew her in the days of a-tive usefulness. 
The sterner side of her Puritan cliaiacter was softened by the all- 
abounding quality of love and the constant exeicise of charity. She 
loved nature. Her rare fancy found (h light in simple things and 
those usmilly unobserved tritles that lie close to the heart of nature. 
Broad 11 her affections, she gathered to her. according to her 
means, the poor ;uid suffering ones who most need human sj'in- 
pathy. The hunil)le blessed hei', and the strongest in earthly pos- 
sessions yieliletl unliesitatuig love." 

.Mrs. Bates' publications have been, in chronoligical order, as 
follows: " ^•|)"s Fables in," " Heart's Content," a story of 
child life; "From lltvirt's Content" a volume of poems. For 
many years shi^ contributed to juvenile publications; many a young 
heart (and many an older one, too) will grieve to hear that the 
gentle singiM-, Clara Doty Bates, will sing no more in this world of 

."Mrs. Bales wiis ideiitilied with I'very manner of good work in 
this city. We recall particularly the zealous interest sh(» took in 
the Children's building at he World's Fair; she was, if we nustake 
not. hostess in that building durim^ the period of the Fair. Mrs. 
Bates ileelined the presidency of the Fortnightly Club, but was 
induced toacce])t, in S[)ite of failing hejilth, the vice-presidency of 
that notable orgnnization. It was, however, in the quieter spheres 
of usefidness that this lady preferreil and loved to move; her 
retiring nature found congeniality in those secret ministrations for 


which the poor, the sick and the afflicted, whom she succored, now 
bless her memory. 

This is a heavy time with us who know this brave, gentle lady. 
And yet we know that, could she raise her dear hand now, it would 
be to brush away our tears, and that could she speak tons aj^'ain, it 
would be words of comfort and of cheer — so compassionate, so 
sweet, so boundless was her love.

Gardner and Lydia Gardner, lie was a fanner at Stephentown, N. Y. , 
and d. there March 6, 1882. Ills widow d. there. 

Though quiet and retiring, she was a woman of marked trails ot 
character, with a heart full of sympathy for the sick and suffering. Her 
active life was filled with deeds of kindness and love. " To do justly, to 
love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God" seemed, in a marked 
degree, to be the controlling spirit of her life. With the same heroic for- 
titude with which she had l)orne many severe trials, she calmly awaited 
the last summons. A fitting close to a beautiful and unselfish life. She 
was buried In the family plot in Hancock, where lie five generations of 
her kindred. 

" An honored life, a peaceful end, 
And Heaven to crown it all." 

An obituary notice published at the time of his death says, " He 
received the u.sual district school education, working on the farm at the 
same time, and after his marriage, resided in that part of Hancock, 
Berkshire Co., Mass., adjoining the line of. Stephentown, N. Y., until 
about 1800, when thej' removed just across the line into the latter town. 

" He was a man of more than <.'ommon intelligence, a great reader, 
and throughout his life took a special interest in all (Klucaiional matters, 
promoting, as far as lay in his means, the best interests of the schools of 
his district, and securing the most advanced course of studies in them. 
He took an intelligent interest in ])ublic affairs, and represented Hancock 
for one term in the Legislature of Massachusetts. 

" He was a great lover of nature, and living among the Berkshire Hills, 
of whose beauty he never tired, their constantly varying hues under the 
changing seasons, ever afforded him delight. He was an ardent angler. 
No trout, in any brook for miles around, l)ut greeted him and jumped for 
the fly he so deftly threw. 

"But his tlistiiiguishing feature was his excetHJlngly genial and 
generous disposition, and his happy temperament. His was th(^ mission 
to carry the sunlight into the dark places, and no house was too humble 
for his visit. His cheery words greeted alike the widow in her lonely 
home, the child on the way to school, the farmer in the field, the preacher 
in the Church, and brighteiuxl the pathway for each. No gathering was 


complete without him. ' His ways were ways of pleasantness and all his 
paths were peace.' 

" He died as calmly and peacefully as he had lived. Sick but a week, 
conscious from the first that the illness would be fatal, he had only 
pleasant words for the friends and family who attended on him, and met 
his death without a tremor. He was buried in the family i)lot at Han- 
cock, by the side of the dear children who had gone before, and there was 
no dry eye among the neighbors who filled the Church and listened to the 
words of consolation from the minister when he said : ' We have all lost a

Jeannette Potter. She died Hancock, Oct. 6, 1867. Captain 
Albert Doty graduated at the Normal School of Westfield, Mass., 
in June, 1861. He immediately after, June 18, 1861, enlisted as 
private in the 34th Regt. New York Volunteers. They were at 
once ordered to the seat of war, with the Army of the Potomac. 
He was promoted March 20, 1862, to be 1st Lieut., and Jan. 28, 1863, 
to Adjutant of his regiment. He served with great gallantrj^ at the 
battle of Ball's Bluff, and subsequently with the Army of the 
Potomac. He commanded his company through the seven days 
fighting before Richmond, Va. , and was mustered out with his 
regiment March 25, 1863. Having never taken a furlough, he now 
proceeded to his home to visit his parents and take a needed rest. 
Though a man of great ability and brave almost to rashness, he 
was singularly modest about his services in the army. After 
having once risen by his merit alone to the rank of Adjutant, 
prefering to earn promotion rather than to seek the easier position 
of an officer, he again enlisted, Jan. 27, 1864, as a private in the 
57th Regt. Mass. Vols. He was promoted 1st Lieut. July 28, 1864, 
and Aug. 18 of the spme year was brevetted Captain " for gallant 
services in the operations on the Weldon Railroad." In the sub- 
sequent movements and battles of Grant's Army around Richmond 
he served with conspicuous bravery and ability, and at the close of 
the war, again with the rank of Adjutant, was mustered out of 
service. July 30, 18'}5. Returning to Hancock, he settled down for 
a while and married, with the brightest prospects of a happy life, 
his old playmate and sweetheart. Her early death, a few months 
later, greatly affected his sensitive nature, and subsequently 
unsettled his mind. For, though he removed to Chicago, 111., and 
applied himself to the study of architecture with much diligence 
and had reached a point where success in his profession seemed to 
open up before him, he never recovered from the loss of his 
wife, and finally, in a fit of aberration, died by his own hand, Sept. 
27, 1873, at Springfield, 111., where he was engaged upon some 
public works.

He early manifested a talent for paintimj, and without any sitecial instruc- 
tion to that end became a portrait painter. Many of his portraits of dis- 
tinguished people were painted for Trowbridge's Albany Museum, where 
(hey were for a long time on exhibition and formed one of its chief attrac- 
tions. Munsell, in his "Annals of Albany,'' says; " Doty's jiaintings 
were part of the attractions of Biven'e Vauxhall Gardens, in North Pearl 
street, in 182(). They were afterward merged in the collection at Trow- 
bridge's Museum." Shortly after the death of his wife and youngest 
child, he removed to Brooklyn, N. Y., where he died February 15, 1841.

N. Y., Oct. 15, 1830, Sarah Mehitable Child, b. Troy, N. Y., Sept. 18, 
1810, dau. Rev. Caleb Child and Sarah Brandiall. 

Rev. Caleb Child was a descendant of Benjamin Child, who came from 
Great Britain in 1G30 and settled at Roxbury, Mass. A full account of 
this family will be found in the "Genealogy of the Child Family," pub- 
lished by Rev. Elias Child of Utica N. Y. 

The Bramhalls were an early Plymouth family, Sarah Bramhall being 
from a branch that had emigrated to Amenia, Dutchess County, N. Y., 
where she met and married Rev, Caleb Child. 

Warren S. Doty and wife, shortly after their marriage, removed to New 
York City, where for a time both were engaged in the mounting of maps 
for a large map publishing house. About 1835-6 he established an 
engraving, printing and paper business, which was carried on under the 
firm names successively of Pollock & Doty, Doty & Jones and finally as 
Doty & Bergen, under which name it continued till his death, which took 
place at Brooklyn, N. Y., Nov. 14, 1855. Mr. Doty was of tall but rather 
slender frame, cheerful disposition, with a quaint, dry humor, which 
seems to have been common to all of the descendants of Samuel Doty 
of Stephentown, N. Y. He was exceedingly industrious and energetic 
and of great probity, qualities which made him successful in business, 
while he at the same time won the respect and esteem of all who knew 
him. His solicitude was entirely for his family, to whose care and educa- 
tion his life was largely devoted. About 1847 he removed his residence 
to Brooklyn, where he afterward resided. 

Mrs. Doty was a woman of superior natural gifts, self-reliant, energetic 
and thoroughly devoted to the care of her family circle. She died at 
Brooklyn, N. Y., July 23, 1878. Affectionate, kind and devoted parents, 
their memory will ever be cherished by their children.

lege of the City of New Yorlc. His first occupation was in 1852, as 
assistant librarian at the Mercantile I ibrary of New York City, and 
this was followed by a position as librarian of a large library in 

He then became the bookkeeper of a book publishing house, which 
position he retained for a year, and upon the sickness and decease 
of his father, entered the business of Doty & Bergen, first as book- 
keeper, but subsequently suecHeded to his father's interest in that 
house. He purchased, in 1862, the interest of his partner, and 
entered into a new partnership with his biother-in-law, Edward 
McFarlan. and the firm of Doty & McFarlan, succeeded in 
1888 hj the firm of Doty & Scrimgeour, has been for many 
years one of the leading and most prosperous houses in the manu- 


facUire of fancy papers, with their manufactory in Brooklyn and 
offices and wa.oliouses in New Yorl< t'jty. Mr. Doty removed to 
Brooklyn witli his parents in 1847 and has since resided there, be 
coujing identified with many of its institutions and with some of 
its history. He was, in ISs;^ a member and chairman of the Civil

The following sketch of his life is from the pen of one of his accom- 
plished daughters: 

Early in life he felt it to be his mission to preach the Gospel to the 
heathen, and studied for the ministry with that aim In view, being pre- 
pared in his studies at Rutgor's College and New Brunswick Theological 
Seminary. An historical pamphlet of the Sabbath school of the Reformed 
Church at Berne, N. Y''., says: " On November 3, 1832, Elihu Doty, one 
of our scholars, entered into full communion with this church on confes- 
sion of faith. In April, 1833, he was recommended as a fit person for the 
ministry. He graduated from Rutger's College, 1835, and from the Theo- 
logical Seminary at New Brunswick, N. J., in 183(i." 

Quoting from a "Manual of the Reformed Church in America:" " His 
first aspirations after missionary life were formed in the Sabbath school. 
In his studies he was known for his faithful application and excellent 


scholarship— not showy, but solid— developing excellent judgment and 
great balance of mind, and winning respect and confidence by his earnest 
and decided piety. He was somewhat advanced in age when be began his 
preparation for the ministry, and by the advice of others overleapeil two 
years of his college course. 

" His integrity, intellectual and moral, was complete, and no one ever 
dreamed of questioning his conscientiousness. His missionary ardor was 
increased by the magnetic presence and contagious enthusiasm of David 
Abeel." He graduated from the seminary in 183(5, being licensed to 
preach by the Classis of Schoharie, N. Y., in the same year, and in June 
he sailed for Java, in company with Elbert Nevius, William Youngblood 
and Jacob Ennis, under the care of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Re- 
formed Church, which believed the Dutch Government established there 
would show some interest in the missions of a church whose fathers had 
come from Holland. But, on arriving at Batavia In September, they found 
no friendly welcome or protection, so finally Borneo was assigned as their 
location, and they reiched Sambas, Borneo, June 19, 1839, after three 
years of disheartening labor and delay in Batavia and Singapore, only 
to meet further disappointments, for, in a few months, Mr. Nevius was 
obliged to leave on account of his wife's broken health, and Mr. Ennis 
proved himself a very unfit man. Notwithstanding his mental endow- 
ments, he was dismissed and finally deposed from the ministry, thus leav- 
ing the work so newly established to be carried forward by Mr. Young- 
blood and Mr. Doty. 

Messrs. Pohlman and Thompson soon joined them, when the former 
and Mr. Doty devoted themselves to the Chinese who came to Borneo for 
purposes of trade ; but after a few years' residence in Sambas and Ponti- 
anak, it became evident they could do more efficient work among the 
Chinese, if in their own land; accordingly they went to Amoy, Chma, in 
1844, reaching this seaport town in Southern China at the close of June. 

Shortly before leaving this country in 183(5, Mr. Doty married Clarissa D. 
Ackley of Washington, Ct. , a lady highly spoken of and esteemed. Upon 
their arrival iii China, when their little family must have been knit together 
closely and peculiarly, among a strange people, these two were shown there 
were other ties to break than leaving home, lands and friends tried and true, 
for, after three weeks, they laid away their only son, six years of age, 
and memory recalls, even now, the peculiar tenderness with which that 
father would speak, in years long after, of this child, who went out from 
them then, and in the October following, 1845, Mrs. Doty died, leaving 
two little girls whom their father brought to this country, together with 
the motherless children of Mr. Pohlman, in March, 184(5. These having 
been left with kind friends, he married Eleanor A. Smith of Troy, N J. , 
in 1847, and returned to Amoy in August of that same year. 

Although so discouraged in the outset of their work, the missionaries 
felt greatly encouraged in China, those who embraced Christianity in most 
cases showing by the fruit of their lives the genuineness of their conversion, 
and through the course of Mr. Doty's life from this date his was the work

of buildiiij,' up that for which he, with his associates in the earlier days, 
laid th(; foundation; also the widening of the field and work back into the 
country. His experiences were much the same that all laborers in foreign 
fields have felt; there were the discouragements of blind prejudice and 
ignorance, and of the naturally wicked heart in these heathen, as in all 
others of humanity; there were the outbreaks and the riots instigated 
by the priests against the Christians, both foreign and native, and the 
civil wars imperiled life at times, as in 1853, when it raged through that 
part of the Empire, and the City of Amoy was beseiged, and all the 
horrors of war among a half-civilized i)eoi)le were jierpetrated on its 
streets, and in its harbor filled with war junks, during the cannonading of 
which many balls and bullets lodged in Mr. Doty's house, one of which 
just escaped hitting Mrs. Doty and an infant in her lap. 

Mr. Doty was very much engaged during the later years of his life in 
translations into the Chinese language of such works as were deemed 
suitable. The " Manual," quoted from before, says: " lie wasatlmirably 
fitted for this department, by his habits of accuracy, his candor, judg- 
ment, and freedom from caprice and prejudice. He was a laborious man; 
there was no romance in his character. A stern, determined worker, he 
sturdily pressed on. He met difficulties with a quiet heroism, but turned 
not aside. He never spared himself until his friends compelled him." 

His publications were: Anglo-Chinese Manual of the Amoy Dialect, 
Translation and Revision into Amoy Dialect of Milner's 'J'hirteen Village 
Sermons, including Milner's Tract on the " Straight Gate," Some Thoughts 
on the Proper Term for " God" in the Chinese, Narrative of a Tour in 
Borneo, Translation of Sacramental and INIarriage Forms of Refornu^d 
Protestant Dutch Church into Amoy Colloquial. 

It was during 1858 that Mr. Doty acted as American Consul during the 
absence of the appointed Consul, Mr. Hyatt, and his judgment was so 
clear and just that throughout his life he was constantly sought for 
advice and counsel. The necessities of a missionai-y's life tend to develop 
one's genius in every channel, and in the absence of a dentist ^Ir. Doty 
often rendered assistance in that line, and by performing slight surgical 
operations, while his knowledge of Natural Pliilosophy often aided otliers 
and himself in securing comforts and helps which seemed little short of 
witchery to the simple natives. His publications were also bound under 
his supervision and direct aid, the press being in his study. At certain 
seasons of the year he was a great sufferer from asthma, many times 
being unaljle to lie down or rest in any position, while at all times he 
was never robust. Death entered this fold also, taking the oldest and the 
then only son, again and later the babe for whom the mother gave her 
life for, in February, 1858, Mrs. Doty died, leaving the tender mother- 
father the solicitude of four other little ones whom he l)i-ought to the 
care, so kindly and generously offered, of his wife's parents and sister, in 

After spending one year in this country, recruiting in tiealth and 
starting his children in their education, he again turned his face to the 
work to which he gave himself for life, and continued in arduous 


labors, through different vicissitudes, national and ecclesiastical, until his 
gradual but certainly failing physical powers told him his work was done. 
Then with mingled feelings he embarked on the "N. B. Palmer" for the 
United States, on November 30th, 1864, and as he stood on her deck, 
bade farewell to the home of his adoption, the land where he had lived 
into nearly the whole of his life experiences, where most of his associ- 
ations were formed, and where he had passed through the deeper passions 
that stir one's soul, the joys too deep for utterance and the sorrows in 
which "the heart knoweth its own bitterness;" but within four days of 
his destination the worn-out body could no longer hold the fettered spirit, 
and breaking its bonds he was with his G-od, and at rest. March 18th, 
1865. The funeral services were held at the Middle Dutch Church, 
Lafayette Place, New York City, and also in the church in Parsippany 
N. J., and his precious remains lie in the cemetery in that place.

The following despatch which, appeared in a New York City paper, 
April 2!), 1880, will establish i\Irs. Folwell's reputation for courage under 
trying circumstances: 

" Buffalo, April 28. — As Miss Flora Doty, daughter of Leonidas Duty, 
the wealthy banker of this city, was walking along Delaware avenue to-day, 
near Tupper .street, she saw a well-dressed j'oung man approaching her. 
Miss Doty carried a well-lilled purse, one of the fashionable pattern, sus- 
pended from a handle. As the two wen^ about to pass each other, the 
young man seized the purse and attempted to Jerk it from her hand. 
Miss Doty was plucky, and clung tenaciously to the handle. The j'oung 
man aLso hung on, and in attempting to wrest the purse from her hand, it 
was forced open, allowing the bank notes and silver to fall upon the flag- 
stones. The thief then released his hold, and darted through Tupj)er 
street, and was soon lost to sight. Miss Doty had a similar experience In 
New York, several years ago, while in company with her mother and her 
sister, Mrs. " Westervelt? of Now York. The ladies were walking in 
Twenty-first street, near Gramcn-cy l^ark, when two men came up 
behind them. They passed the ladii's, one on either side, and as one 
passed Mrs. Doty he seized her watelichain, gave it a pull and darted 
away. The chain was broken from the fastening at the neck and at th(i 
watch in the belt. The charms and parts of the chain jingled on the side- 
walk. The action of the thief Avas seen by Miss Doty, and as he darted 
away she gave chase. The thief ran fast, but Miss Doty was equally 
fleet, and she kept him in sight for about two squares. Then the villain 
leaped into a sewer trench where men were at work, and seizing a shovel, 
began work as though he belonged there. Miss Doty called a policeman 
who was passing, told him the story, and identified the thief. He and 
his accomplice were arrested and arraigned in the Jefferson Market Police 
Court. Both men were tried, the robber getting twenty years and the 


accomplice ten years in the State prison. It was a plucky thing for Miss 
Doty to do, and for a time gave her much unsought notoriety."

Woodford and Minerva Potter. 

He is a minister of the Congregational Church, is a graduate of 
Williams' College and Auburn, N. Y., Theological Seminary. Pie spent 
the first four years of his ministry in the city of Troy, as city missionary, 
in th(^ employ of the Young INIen's Christian Association. As a part of 
the fruit of his labors, in connection with this associate band of workers, 
several churches were organized which are to-day strong and prosperous. 

Later he accepted a call to become associate pastor with Dr. Sawtell, 
of the First Congregational Church of Saratoga, where he was greatly be- 
loved. Called by the death of a brother-in-law to the care of the aged 
parents of his wife, he moved in the Spring of 1871 to Avon, Ct. , where 
for ten years he was engaged in active business life, preaching for d(>sti- 
tute churches on the Sabbath, and attending to various business enter- 
prizes during the week. 

During these years his fellow townsmen appointed him to various 
offices of trust, having been at different times Selectman, Secretary of 
the Board of Education, Justice of the Peace, and Member of the House 
of Representatives of Connecticut. 

In 1881, he was called to the Seventh Presbyterian Church of New 
York City (formerly Dr. Hatfield's), from whicli he resigned in April, 
1885. Under his pastorate in New York, and at his suggestion, " Tlie Hat- 
field" was built (upon a vac^ant lot owned by the church) for the purpose 
of providing an attractive home for workingmen, and at the same time 
the securing of an income for the church, to enable it to do an enlarged 
mission work in that old historic field. 

In October, 1885, Mr. Day was appointed Superintendent and Pastor of 
the Albany, N. Y. . City Tract and Missionary Society. For this work he 
had by his previous training a special fitness. He accepted the call and 
entered immediately upon the work there. At the City Mission of 
Albany, Sunday evening, October 2.5, 1885, Rev. Mr. Day, in response to 
a few words of welcome, replied in part as follows: 

" I hardly know how it was I came here, I was unacquainted with this 
field. The place was unsought. And yat I am glad to be in this work. 
I love it for the following reasons. First, on account of its undenomina- 
tional character. And it is just because I learned, in the early experience 
of my ministry, that love for Christ and for souls is deeper, broader, 
grander than any creed. Further, I love this work because you are 


united in a kind of church organization, with the broad platform of love 
to God and love to man. This comes the nearest to my ideal of a true 
aggressive mission work, made up, as it is, of the combined spiritual 
forces of all creeds. The commingling of kindred denominations indi- 
cates my ideal of what a mission church ought to be and what this 
mission society may be. I might find illustration of the same thing by 
turning your thought to the resultant of the concentrated but different 
forms of church government. 

" Still more marked is the happy influence of the different nationalities 
brought together here. The German, skeptical, but open to proof, and 
reaching for it, and, when found, standing upon it; the Scoti-h, grounded 
in the faith, believing in the Bible and the catechism; the Irish, quick- 
witted and often running across lots to truth, while their staid neighbors 
take ' the farthest way around as the safest way home,' and the Yankee, 
born with a ' why ' in his mouth, full of push and inventive of ways 
and means for doing good, all these and others act and re-act upon each 
other in an organization like this and unitedly help to build it into a 
temple of worship to the glory of the Master Builder. Again, I lovethe 
work because I love working men. And I ought to love them, for I have 
experienced in my own life the necessity of toil and have garnered its 
disciplinary fruits. 

" I was left an orphan at an early age with only my two hands and a 
resolute will with which to clear a path before me. With God's bless- 
ing they have done me good service ever since. Your kind words of 
welcome and cheer give me hope to find my way to all these hearts and 
homes. Remember that the door of my own heart is ever open to you 
all, and that my hand is that of a brother to help you to help yourselves 
in every possible way."

Mich., where I resided till I was twenty-one years of age. 1 then went 
with my father, who had just returned from California, to Texas and 
engaged in driving cattle from there to Kansas the two following Sum- 
mers. Being struck with the beauty and fertility of the soil, I, in com- 
pany with a Mr. T. H. Winn, made the first settlement in the Township 
of Darlington f taking the' land from the Government), where I now reside 
and where both my children were born. I was here during the grass- 
hopper raid, but by the death of a distant relative occuring aljout that 
time, I came into possession of sulTicient means to buy out my neighbor 
Winn and to establish myself in comfortable circumstances. I think 
highly of the country and am contented and satisfied, which is as good as 
a fortune."

.'{. John Doty, or Doten, as his name was sometimes written, was born 
atPlyraouth, Mass., in l(!;5!t 40. lie was the second son and child of Ed- 
ward Doty and Faith ClarUo. The date of his birth is established by an 
aflidavit taken in a suit to settle a boundary line, when, under date of Cth 
May, 1684, he says, he was " al)Out forty-four years of age." 

Despite the fact that he apjiears in his early days once or twice upon 
the records of the town in breaches of the peace or in disputes, it is cer- 
tain that he soon became a blameless and highly respected citizen, honored 
by his townsmen, thirfty, industrious and prosperous. 

He was a farmer and probably the only one of Edward Doty's cliikiren 
that settled down in Plymouth and remaining there devoted himself to 
this occupation. He early secured lands there, for, lie.sides what he re- 
ceived from his father's estate, he was granted by the town, at a meeting 
held 8th January, 1665 6, " three acres of meadow land at the Turkey 
Swamp." He probably also took charge of the lands and property of his 
mothtn- in I^lj mouth as early as 1660. And upon her marriage and re- 
moval to Marshfield in 1667 with her younger children, he undoubtedly' 
became her representative in l^lymouth. and in 1671, by a deed, which she 
acknowledged before Governor Prince, his mother conveyed to him all 
her right and tiile to her .share of her late husband's property, not only at 
Plymouth but elsewhere. 

The records show, 1666-7, several disputes on trivial matters with John 
Barnes that were carried into the court and decided. 

In 1667, 2d July, as noted before, " Libertie is granted Edwai'd Dotey 
and his brother, John Dotey, to look out for some supplyes of land." 

17th January, 1667-8. He conveyed to John Smith, the same parly who 
subsequently bought the interest of all the heirs, his share of the estate of 
his father " at Poaks'^tt in Dartmouth." 

yist January, 1668 9. Jle was granted at town meeting, thirty acres at 
Indian Pond. 

1669, July 5th. J,ohn Dunham, Sr. , complained that John Dotey met 
him in the highway and cruelly beat him, for which offence John Dotey 
was held to k'^ep the peace. Nothing more serious than this appears 
against him at any time. 

In "An Exact list of all the names of the Freemen of Plymouth," made 
29th May, 1670, the name of John Dotey is the only one of the family that 

His name appears in the records on coroners' and petit juries at various 
times, spelled in various .styles. In 1675 and 1676 as John Dotey. In 
1679 and 1680 as John Doten. In 1683 4 again as Dotey and a year later 
as John Dotye. 


In the " Old Colony Records," Vol. 5, we find, under the date of "1676, 
July 7, at a court held in Plymouth; in reference vnto the issueing of a 
difference between John Doten and the executors and overseers of the last 
will of Jacob Cooke deceased, and the rest of the children concerned in 
that estate, touching flue pounds demaunded by the said Doughtey, 
comitted to the finall determination of this Court, this Court, haueing 
heard and considered theire mutuall pleas, doe order that the said John 
Doughty shall haue allowed vnto him by the sonnes that enjoy the lands 
of the said Jacob Cooke apportionable theire respectiue ptes by them en- 
joyed, either two acrees of the marsh lying together out of the six acrees 
lying at Joneses Riuer, or forty shillings in current New England mony, 
and forty shillings more to him in current country pay out of the estate 
belonging to the sisters according to theire respectiue ptes." 

In 1671 John Dotey was elected at town meeting " Surveyor of the 
Highwaies" at Plymouth; and again, in 1675, he was re-elected to the 
same position. In 1680 he was elected Constable. 

In 1681 and 1682 he had several suits against Nathaniel South worth, 
who had failed to fulfill a contract to build a house for him, the name 
being spelled in the same suit both Dotey and Doten. 

His cattle mark is entered 10th May, 1683. On May 17th, 1686, he 
was granted four acres upon Mahucket Brook. 
From the Old Colony Records, Vol. 6, we quote: 

" 1690, April 1. The selectmen of Duxborough having reported that 
two of their inhabitants Henry Clarke and Thisten Clarke, by reason of 
their age, indiscretion and weakness of understanding are incapable of 
their own support notwithstanding they have an estate sufficient, and 
John Dotey of Plymouth their nephew having promised to take prudent 
care of them, is allowed to recoup himself from their estate," under 
certain provisions. 

In 1695, after the death of his brother Edward's widow, he and Elmer 
Faunee were appointed guardians for her minor children. 

In 1894-5, Jan. 25, John Nelson, John Dotey and Samuel Lucas were 
authorized to divide up the " gurnett," a piece of land at a headland on 
the coast near Plymouth. 

In the early part of 1701, shortly before his death, he was granted by 
the tovra a considerable plot of ground which afterward proved to be 

In 1716 his sons united in a deed of this land to their sister Elizabeth, 
wife of Joshua Morse, " as they knew it was their father's intention to 
do before his death." This plot was situated mainly on Court street, in 
Plymouth, and will be found described in Davis' " Ancient Landmarks of 
Plymouth," pages 201-3. 

In 1667, the exact date not being on the record, John Doty married 
Elizabeth Cooke. She was born at Plymouth, 18th Jan., 1648-9. Her 
father, Jacob Cooke, was born in Holland, and was a son of Francis 
Cooke, who, with his son John, came in the Mayflower, but whose wife, 
with Jacob and other children, followed in the Ann three years later. 
Jacob Cooke married, in 1646, Damaris, daughter of Stephen Hopkins, 


in whose family Edward Doty e-aiiie as servant in l(i20, and I^lizabeth 
Cooko was thf oldest child liy tiiis marriage. 

John Doty and Elizabeth, his wife, had nine ciuldren, as a]ipears by 
tile record, when she died. 21st Nov., 1092. About two years later, or 
perhaps early in 1G95, he married a second wife, Sarah, whose maiden 
name does not appear on the record. Certain facts make it probable 
that she was Sarah Rickard, daughter of Giles liickanl of Plymouth. 
John Doty, by Sarah, his second wife, had three children, whose births 
are recorded. 

He died on the 8th of May, 1701. Ilis will, made inth of April, 1701, 
and proved 3rd of June of the same year, gives his name, and is signed 
" .lohn Doty Sr. ," but by his mark, and is as follows: 

'' The last Will and Testament of John Doty senr- of Plymouth. 

' ' I being sick & weak of body & not knowing how it may please God 
1o deal with me, yet being of disposing mind & memory do dispose as 
followeth of my worldly estate which God has given me. 

" Imprimis. I give to my eldest son, John Doty a hundred acres of

And I desire my loving brother John Rickard to be helpful to my s'^ wife

" This, I do acknowledge to be my last will and testament whereunto 
I have set my hand and seal this fifteenth April, 1701.

At the same time that tiie will was admitted to probate " Samuel 
Dotey, one of the orphan children of John Djtey, Sr., deceased, late of 
Plimouth, chooses his uncle, Jacob Cooke for his guardian." Elisha 
Dotey chose his brother, John Dotey, Jr., to be his guardian. Sergeant 
John Rickard, probably a brother of the widow, was appointed by the 
court, guardian of Josiah Doty, and William Wing was appointed guar- 
dian of Martha Dotey. Later on, Desire, the youngest daughter, was 
adopted by Giles Rickard, who, if not her uncle Giles, was probably hia 

John Doty's widow married on the 23d of August, 1704, Joseph Peter- 
son, and it is possible that she may have been a widow when she married 
John Uoty. She was was living 1708, her son, Isaac having on the 2d of 
January, of that year purchased all her interest in the estate of her late 
husband, John Doty. 

Many of the descendents of John Doty have lived and some still reside 
at Plymouth, while several generations of others lived in the inmediate 
vicinity, at Plympton, Carver and Kingston, and others at various settle- 
ments on the coast of Maine. 

It is among the descendants of this family that the spelling of the 
name Doten has obtained, and especially among those who have remained 
on the eastern coast. It is in this family, too, and this one only, that 
traditions relating lo the ancestors at Plymouth, and to the early history 
of the family there, have been found, and quite naturally, as in the long 
residence there, papers, records and old heirlooms of various sorts and 
every description are more likely to meet with long preservation than in 
those families who, by succesive migrations, have been disposse.esed not 
only of their superfluous and bulky possessions, but gradually of all recol- 
lection of their ancestry. It quite frequently happens that in these some 
tradition or trait of character in the maternal branches are mistakenly 
referred to as showing the supposed origin of the male branch of the 
family. But those who have remained at or near the original settlement 
have generally preserved correctly such traditions as have withstood the 
test of time, and it is largely through their aid that local historians are en- 
abled to piece out the town and church recoids and to fill up the gaps that 
occur in them. It need not be wondered at, therefore, that the descend- 
ants of this family should hold tenaciously now to the name Doten, be- 
lieving that to have been the original spelling, and the weight of evidence 
would be with them from the fact of their continuous residence at Ply- 
mouth, were it not that the early records, as we have seen, show the first 
generation, as well as all of their descendants who left the coast before 
the Revolution, to have spelled the name with the final y, as Doty or 


The dodcendauts of John Doty have shown very little of the pioneer 
spirit, such as actuated the families of his brothers. Edward Doty's 
children eraijirated to Saybrook, Ct., and in a generation more his de- 
scendants were in the wilderness of northern New York, from whence 
they have steaiiily pressed westward. Joseph Doty died at Rochester, 
Mass., but his children had reached the w<}stern borders of Connecticut 
within a few years after, and fioin there moved out again North and West, 
till now they are to be found in almost every Western State and Terri- 

Samuel Doty himself emigrated to New Jersey, and his descendants 
have been the most energetic pioneers in the family, constantly moving on 
to new fields and homes. Isaac Doty's children, too, left their Long 
Island birthplace to find new homes in the North and West. But the 
descendants of John Doty, for generation after generation, remained at 
the old homesteads in Plymouth and Plympton, dividing the home farm 
and making new homesteads, again to be divided by the next generation, 
their only departui'es being to the villages or towns immediately adjoin 
ing. It must not be inferred, however, that they lacked enterprise. 
Very many of them followed the sea and sailed to every clime on the face 
of the earth, braving all sorts of perils and dangers, as New England sea- 
men were wont to do in that day. The Revolutionary War found some of 
its bravest privateersmen among the representatives of this family. 
Others were merchants of wealth and renown, but the majority have been 
farmers, well-to-do, prosperous and substantial, neglecting no duties, pur- 
suing the even tenor of their way, educating their children well, but liv- 
ing the poacieful life of farmers. The Revolution found them thus, and 
though there were many ardent patriots among them, many others were 
loth to leave their comfortable firesides to engage in the struggle for inde- 
pendence, and gave the cause of the Colonics only lukewarm suj)port, and 
in some cases almost active opposition. 

This led at the close of the war to an emigration of soino, of the loyalist 
families to Nova Scotia, and there had been earlier some emigration to 
the coast of Maine. But it was not till after the Revolution that there 
was any movement toward the West, and even then the emigrants chose 
the well built up settlements rather than to open up the wilderness.

which came to her from her father-by-adoption, Giles Kickard, late 

of Plymouth.

John Doten, Jr., as he was called on the records until after his father's 
death in 1701, was a wealthy farmer with extensive lands. He succeeded 
to a large part of his father's estate, which was increased by lands re- 
ceived by his wife from her father's estate, as well as by subsequent grH.nts 
from the towns of Plymouth and Plympton and by purchases. He early 
made his residence in Plympton, Mass., where his father had made con- 
siderable purchases, and his name appears in the list of persons first en- 
titled to vote for Selectmen at Plympton, 1708-9. 

In 1731, he and his sons, John, Jr., and Jacob, petitioned with others 
to be set off as a separate precinct. They lived in the southern part of 
the town of Plympton, which part was erected about 1800 into a town and 
called Carver, and it was probably there that the Doty's Plain and Doty's 
Meadow named in his father's will were situated. 

In 1706, John Doten and Mehitable, his wife, sold to her brother, 
Samuel Nelson, lands which they received from her father, John Nelson, 
deceased. John Nelson, born 1647, was the son of William Nelson who 
came early to New England and married at Plymouth, Martha Ford. 
The date of Mrs. M>ihitable Doten's death does not appear on the 
record, but probably occurred not long previous to 1745, at which time 
John Doten married, as his second wife, Hannah Sherman, daughter of 
Samuel and granddaughter of William Sherman, the ancestor of that 

John Doten's death is not on record, but his will is filed at Plymouth, 
signed "John -Doten of Plimton," dated April 29, 1746, and proved July 
14, 1747. Of his children it names only " his oldest son John," his daugh- 
ters and Jacob. It gives his estate, after providing a life interest for 
his widow, Hannah Doten, to his grandson, Edward Doten, oldest son of 
his son, John Doten, but Instructs him to pay legacies: 

"1. To my daughter, Mehitable liUcas, wife of William Lucas; 
2. To my son, Jacob; ?,. To my daughter, Susannah Finney, wife of John 
Finney: 4. To my daughter, l.ydia Lucas, wife of John Lucas." His 
oldest son, John Doten, Jr., is appointed executor. Mrs. Hannah Doten's 



will Is also on ropord at I'lymouth, dated 1754. She left her e&tate to her 
brothers, Joshua and Caleb Sherman.

ently in 1766, when her son Edward's affairs were administrated upon. 

The Dunhams were early at Plymouth, John Dunham being there in 
1733, and several branches of the family settled at Plympton. Ebenezer 
was a favorite name in the family, and as several of that name lived early 
at Plympton it is possible, though not certain, that Lidiah was the daugh- 
ter of one of them. 

John Doten was a farmer of considerable property at Plympton, Mass. 
In 1729 he received, by deed of gift from his father, a large farm there, 
and was a man of prominence and influence in the southern part of the 
town, now known as Carver. At the town meeting in 1736 he was elected 
Surveyor of Highways. 

His will is on record at Plymouth, Mass. It is dated January 19, 1748, 
and is as follows: 

" In the name of God, Amen. 

" I, John Doten of the Town of Plympton, in y County of Plymouth, 
in the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England, Husbandman, 

















being convinced of the certainty of death and of y^ uncertainty ot the 
time when and being through Gods goodness at this time of a good dis- 
posing mind and memory do malte this my last will and testament as fol- 
loweth. In the first place I commit my sole to God who gave it and my 
body to the earth to bo buried in a decent christian nuinner at yi' discre- 
tion of my Executor hereafter named, and as to my temjjoral estate which 
it has pleased God to bless me withal! my will is that it be improved & 
disposed of in yc following manner A after ray just debts and funeral 
charges paid. 

" Imprimis. I give to my beloved wife Lydia Doten one third part of 
my Heal and personal estate during the time of her widow-hood and then 
return to my children hereafter named to be divided amongst them in y 
same manner the other two thirds are. 

"Item. I give unto my son Edward Doten 3 oth parts & an half of 
two third parts of my real & personal estate to his heirs & assigns for- 

"Item. I give unto my son Ebenezer Doten one fifth & an half of two 
third parts of my real and personal estate to his heirs & assigns forever. 

"Item. I give unto my daughter Elizabeth Fuller the value of one 
fifth part of two third parts of my real & personal estate to her heirs and 
assigns, to be paid to her in money or out of my persoiuil estate, one fifty 
pounds old tenor to be paid twelve months after my decease and the re- 
manding part to be paid to her yearly at 50-C old tenor a year till ye whole 
be paid & ray will is that my son Edward Doten and my son I^benezer 
Doten pay theafores'^ sums to my daughter Elizabeth Fuller equally be- 
tween them. 

"Item. I give unto my son Nathaniel Doten one lifth part of two 
third parts of my real and personal estate to his heirs and assigns for- 

" Further my will is that if ray son Edward Doten or Ebenezer Doten 
should die without issue that the part of my real estate which they then 
possess shall belong to the surviving brother of the two, to his heirs and 
assigns forever. Furthermore I do by these presents constitute and ap- 
point Ebenezer Spooner of Plymouth in y County of Plymouth, Cord- 
wainer, sole Executor to this my last will it testament. 

" In testimony whereof I have hereunto set mj- hand and seal this nine- 
teenth day of January A. D. one thousand seven hundred and forty eight. 

" Signed Sealed and declared " Johnn Doten Seal. 

, in presents of us. 

" William Lucas. 

" Elisha Wytoii. 

" Rebecca llobbins." 

It is evident it was intended by this will to devise two and one-half fifths 
of the two-thirds of the estate nsmaining after the widow's iiortion was 
set off to Edward Doten; one and one-half fifths to Ebenezer and one-fifth 
to Nathaniel Doten, while the daughter, Elizabeth Fuller, received one- 
fifth, to be taken equally from the shares of Edward and Ebenezer. By 


this, eventually, Edward received two shares or fifths and the other 
children one share or fifth each. 

The births of their children are not upon the town records, and it is pos- 
sible that there may have been otht^rs, as there is a tradition in the family 
to that effect; but if so, they probably died early.

will as his son, but the only other trace of him is in the following 
deed, and as he is never mentioned in the traditions of the families 
of his brothers, it Is prob. that he was not m. and d. early. 

Plymouth County Deeds, 17.')3, Feb. 28. Nathaniel Doten of 
Plimpton " in Consn of being comfortably maintained and supported 
in sickness and health during my natural life which my loving 
brother, Ebenez'^r Doten of same town, hath bound himself to do," 
sells all his real and personal estate given him " by his loving 
father, John Doten, and all right to dowry of his mother, Lydia

Plympton, Mass., about 1703-4; m. there, a wife, Deborah, prob. Deborah 
Ricard, b. Plympton, 1707, dau. Joseph Ricard and Deborah Miller. 
They lived Plympton. He d. before June, 1747. 

June 26, 1747. The Court appointed his widow and Joseph Ricard 
administrators. 1749. Elisha Wyton of Plimton was appointed guardian 
for Hannah, minor daughter of Jacob Doten. 1747. Deborah Doten, 
widow, sells property of late Jacob Doten. 1752. Joseph Rickard of 
Middleborough, appointed guardian for Sarah and Zephaniah Doten, 
minors. 1752. William Lucas was appointed guardian for Jemima and 
Jacob, minor children of late Jacob Doten. He was a brother-in-law of 
the widow and Elisha Whitton a cousin, Joseph Ricard was probably her 

It is possible that the widow married second, Seth Fuller, for a deed 
on Plymouth Records, 1753, shows that Seth Fuller and Deborah, his 
wife of Plymouth, release to Solomon Doten of same, their share of the 
estate of the late Jacob Doten. Davis' "Plymouth Genealogies" says, 
however, that Seth Fuller married, as second wife, the widow Deborah 
Cole, which may be an error. On the record at Plympton, the names of 
this family are all spelled Doting. At Plymouth they are Doten or Doty.

He was the first of his family to leave Plymouth and emigrate to the

all his descendants are known. 

Jabez Doten, joiner, of Plymouth, Mass., 1737, sells to his brother 
Isaac his share of lands received from his father ; he also buys a lot, 
1737, on King street, Plymouth.

Rev. John Doty had an eventful live and occupies a prominent 
place in the church history of the State of New York, in Revolu- 
tionary times. Sketches of his life will be found, not entirely ac- 
curate however, in the " Documentary History of New York," vol. 
4, p. 305, edited by Dr. E. B. O'Callaghan, and Bolton's "History 
of the Church in Westchester County, N. Y." The following 
sketch is, however, corroborated by letters and by items taken 
from his diary. 

While the paternal ancestors of Rev. John Doty were of the 
strictest Puritan stock at Plymouth, his mother was the daughter 
of an English military officer, stationed in New York. This union 
brought to him some means and good familvconnections, a conser- 
vative tendency in politics and religion, and a desire for culture, 
position and influence. He was the oldest son of his parents, and, 
1768, entered King's College of New York City, now Columbia 
College. He graduated in 1770, and during the Summer of that 
year officiated as lay reader. In the fall, he sailed for England, 


and Oct. 2:{(1, 1770, re«H'ived deacon's order in llie ('Impel Uoyal, 
Westnunster. In the same chapel, .Ian. 1, 1771, he received 
priest's orders from the Bishop of Norwich, liejng licensed to offi- 
ciate in the Province of New York. He reinrned at once to Amer- 
ica and July I'i. 1771. was appointed rector of tin- parish of SI. Peter's 
and ordained for the church at I'eekskill, Westchester County, 
N.V. Here ho remained till 177;^, when he removed to Schenec- 
tady. N. Y.. to which place he was appointed at thereciuest of the 
wardens and vestry. 

Rev. William Andrews to whose place he succeeded, wrote 
16th August. 1773, to Sir William .Johnson: " This gentleman, who 
now officiates in my room is iiersonally known to Col. .Johnson, and 
I believe would, if agreeable to you and the people, accept the mis- 
sion. He is a relation of Mr. Kllice's, a person of good abilities and 
a fair character." 

Rev. .John Doty remained at Schenectady, till 1775, when the 
first hostilities of the Jievolution having broken out, divine ser- 
vice was suspended in his church on account of the troul)les and 
he became the object of much harsh treatment. He was annoyed 
by several arrests and Unally on Whitsun Monday, 1777, he was 
taken into custodj' by the Jievolutionists on account of his loyalty 
to the king. Ih) now deemed it prudent to aj)ply for liberty to re- 
move to Canada, which he obtained, and Oct. '2'M, 1777, left the 
State of New York for Montreal, Can., where he arrived Nov. 17, 
1777, and was api)ointed chaplain of His Majesty's Royal Regi- 
ment of New York. In .June, 1778, he h'ft with his regiment for 
Quebec, and In August following went to Sorel, Can. Oct. 23d, 1781, 
he sailed with his wife from Quebec for England, under a convoy 
of sixty sail In the ship Integrity, and arrived in London, Jan. 4, 
1782. He left London for Canada, April, 1782, leaving Mrs. Doty 
in London, but >.'ov. 8, 17S2, sailed again from Quebec for England 
and 'anded at Plymouth, Lngland, Nov. 2(i, 1782. 

Having been appointed nnssionary at Sorel, Canada, he left Lon- 
don in April, 17S4, on the ship Ranger and arrived at Quebec, June 
13th, and immediately entered on his mission. At Sorel for the 
first four weeks he performed the divine service in the Roman 
Catholic Church and afterward in the barracks, where he resided. 
In Sept., 1784, he received an invitation to become pastor of 
St. Peter's Church at Albany, N. 'i.. and the next summer went 
with his wife on a visit to Albany and New York, but returned 
again to Sorel. 

On Christmas day, 178"), he completed the first Protestant Church 
budt in Canada, and opened it for divine service. In 17S(i, he was 
appointed .lustico of Peace of i'rovince of (^ueb(>c, and made Magi- 
strate of Sorel. In the Spring of 171)3, Mrs. Doty went to New York 
for the ben<ifit of her health and in August, he followed there and 
received an invitation to become rector of St. Aim's Church, 
Brooklyn, N. Y. It has been supjiosed that he accepted this, and 
the records of the Mi.ssionary Society, 17'.t4, .say: "It is with con- 
cern that the society has r<H;eived informal ion that llu-y are (h'prived 
of the useful .services of this worthy mi.ssionary, Mr. .lohn Doty, by 
his ri'uioval to his native country, to take charge of St. Ann's 
Church at Brooklyn in Long Island, in th<' Province of New 

But Rev. John Doty's diary shows in Sei)t., \7\K], he r<»turne(l 
to Sorel, and was ap])ointed chai)laiu of the (iOth Regt. His R. H. 
Princ(> Edward visited Sorel in Dec, 17'.Ki. and Mr. Doty had the 
honor of dining witli him there. He continued at Sorel till 
1803, whim he resigned the mission. An entry in tlie diary, Oct., 
1795, shows that his mother was now eighty years old, and was living 


at Albany, and that he had a widowed sister, living probably at 
Schenectady. tie probably, soon after this, removed to Three 
Rivers. Canada, where he subsequently lived. His diary is entirely 
silent as to his domestic relations, but it is known that he was 
divorced from his 1st wife, and m. here a 2nd wife, who out- 
lived him. The records of Albany Co., X. Y., show that 1815, 
Aug. 28, John Doty, clerk and Jane Bostwick, widow, both residing 
at Three Rivers, Can., quitclaim to Adonijah Moody, certain property 
as heirs of John Price. And 1821, July 28, Rev. John Doty of 
Three Rivers, Lower Can., buys woodland at Schenectady, N. Y., 
which in 1880, with Jiachel, his wife, he sells. 

He is reported to have d. Three Rivers, Can., in 1844, having 
nearlj' completed a century of a very active life. Portraits of Rev. 
John Doty and his 2nd wife are in possession of her family, and he 
is said to have prepared a bioghaphy of his own life, the manuscript 
of which was placed with some publishing house and neglected.

Plymouth, .Mass., Oct. 7, 1710: m. there Aug. 3, 1738, Phebe Phinney, b. 
there 1725. dau. John Finney and Sarah Hartlett. There would appear to 
be some error in the; date of this marriage, though given on the record as 
1738. But in that year Phebe Phinney was but thirteen y(»ars of age and 
Edward Doten but twenty-two. Such early marriages were not then com- 
mon, and the dates of births of the chil. make it prob. that the m. occur- 
red several years later. They lived Plymouth. He was a mariner. 

1749. He buys at Plymouth. 1757. Deeds his house at Plymouth to 
Perez Tillson and Thomas Doty, merchants. 

There is little on the records at Plymouth to tell the storj' of Edward 
Doten's life. Tradition reports that he lived at Plymouth, but removed 
about 1757 to Nova Scotia, where he lived for some year.s, but returned 
again to Plymouth, .Mass., where he died 1775. Before his death the 
troubles antecedent to the Revolutionary War broke out. Party feeling 
ran high, and .several of his sons espoused the side of the king, w-hile the 
others remained faithful to the cause of the Colonies. The members of 
the family thus became e.sti'anged and separated, and at the close of the 
war the loyalists removed to Nova Scotia or New Br uaswick, and further 
communication with them ceased.

Israel Dunham; he d. Plympton, April 17, 1705; the date of his widow's 
death does not appear, though she survived him. 

He was a wealthy farmer at Plympton, in that portion of the town now 
called Carver. He received a considerable estate from his grandfather 
which was increased by his thi ift and management, and by his share of 
his father's considerable property. On the records of the town his name 
is written both Doten and Dotin, while his wife's name, now generally 
called Whiting, Is there wi-itten as Whitin and Whitton. 

April 27, 1700, Elisha Whitton of Plympton, was appointed administra- 
tor of the estate of Edward Doten, late of Plympton, yeoman. Samuel 
Lucas, Rowland Hammond and Zebedee Chandler wereappointed to make 
an inventory. They set off one-third to Joannah Dotey, his widow. The 
land was bounded by land which Ebenezer Doten bought of the late Edward 
Doten, also by land set off to widow, Hannah Doten. Debts were found 
due the widow, Lidiah Doten, Ebenezer Doten and others. The dates of 
births of the children are given here as they stand on the old town record 
at Plympton, Mass. It differs slightly from records furnished by members 
of the family, but the difference of eleven days between the old and new 
style of reckoning will account for the most of this.

His name as well as that of his children is written upon the records at 
Middleborough, ^lass., sometimes as Doten and other times as Doty. 
His descendants seem to have been divided about the spelling, and 
some are called Doten and others Doty. In 17!)4 Zephaniah Doty is 
recorded as living in District Xo. 1 of Kochester, >[ass.. which was near 
the line of Middleborough.

127.">. THOMAS DOTY, son Edward Doten and Phebe Phinney, b. 
Plymouth, Mass., March G, 1747-8. It is quite certain that he m. twice, 1st 
prob. Plymouth, but the name of his 1st wife has not been discovered. He 
ni., 2d, prob. Xova Scotia or Maine, Rhoda Rounds, or perhaps Ruunells. 

The accounts received of his life may not be entirely accurate: coming 
from different sources they do not always ajrree. He espoused the Royalist 
cause in the llevolution with .several of his brothere, and at the of 
the war removed to Xova Scotia and resided for a time at Halifax. In 
1818 he was living at Xorridgewock, Me., and being then seventy years of 
age, it is probable that he died somewhere in that vicinity. 

Active investigation and correspondence has failed to obtain any more 
facts in regard to the descendants of this interesting family, other than 
those of his son Paul It will be noted that while Paul and his de- 
scendants write the name '" Doty," other children write it " Doughty."

There is no record of the family of John Doty, or tradition through the 
families of his brothers. However, the veiy circurastHUces that caused 
the estrangement of the brothers during the Revolutionary War and led 


to their separation, give good reasons to believe tiiat he was the ancestor 
of the familj' tiiat follows:

New York City and New Jersey. Ilis rank was Comruissary Sergeant. 
He was with Washington when he crossed the Delaware in December, 
1776, and was present at the battles of Trenton and Princeton. For six 
months further he served in Rhode Island and then joined a privateer, of 
which Captain Hardy was in command, and made several trips with him. 
His sons relate that on one occasion, when delivering beef to the different 
mess squads, became to a barrel marked " Jieef T," suspecting that it 
was a choice morsel he roiled it to one side till his own squad came up and 
delivered it to tliem. They found it to contain beef tongues, all meat and 
no bones. At the close of the war he married and settled in Leverett, 

Mrs. Elizabeth Gilbert Doty is said to have been a most excellent wife 
and mother, with an intellect above the average and very well educated 
for the time in which she lived, indeed, as her grandchildren report, of 
superior attainments, and nearly all her children partook of the strong 
thirst for knowleege that she possessed. Many letters, still in existence, 
show her to have been of a poetic nature, and after the fashion of the day 
she wrote an acrostic for each of her family containing some kind wish and 
words of encouragement. 

It will be noted that James Doty alone of the children of Edward Doten 
spells, as do all his descendants, the family name Doty. He was probably 
the lirst of his family to leave his native town of Carver, and in doing so 
to adopt the spelling geneially accepted by the family away from the

writes: "James Doten, whose mother was Mrs. Betsey White, 
^larshfield, ]Mass.. came to California from Jlexico, 1848. and was 
the di.s(;overer of ' Dotcn's Bar'— vei-y rich diggings. Don't know

the death of her husband in 1812, married a White and resided at Marsh-

He was a man whose memory is greatly respected by his descendants 
for his ability, integrity and worth. He wrote his name "Doty" as do 
all his descendants. He appears to have been estranged from his father, 
after the latter's second marriage and to have had no association with his

d. Bri.stol, March 15, 1824, aged 55 years. He prob. m. 2nd, Mrs. Sarah 
Bishop. He d. Bristol, Aug., 1844, aged 72 years. 

It is reported that at the time his father with the rest of the family 
removed to N(!w Y'ork State in 1780, he, being then 14 years of age, came 
to Bristol. R. I., where he subsequently lived. He thus became separa- 
ted from his relatives with whom he had little further communication, 
though it is said that he visited them about the year 1800. His children, 
who give these particulars, also remember having heard him tell about 
the old house at Plymouth. Mass., which corroborates to some extent 
this account of his ancestry.

from Eastern States to Rensselaer Co., N. Y. ; m. a wife, Content. 

Without any positive proof in records or tradition, all the probabilities 
point to this Joseph Doty being the son of John Doty who removed about 
1786 with his family from Bristol Co.,, to Troy, N. Y., or that 
vicinity. If so, Joseph was b. Bristol Co., Mass., about 1775.

dau., Mrs. D. P. Foster, Shelburne Falls, Franklin Co., Mass., Jan. 9, 
1857, but vpas buried beside his wife at Bernardston. He was a carpenter 
and builder and lived at Bernardston. He was a man of large intelli- 
gence, and one of the founders of the Universalist Society there. 

His grandson, Dr. E. W. Foster of Boston, Mass., who was his favorite 
grandchild and knew him well, writes: 

'' At the age of eleven years James Doty met with a severe accident by 
cutting one of his knees, and came near losing the use of it ; indeed, it 
rendered him ' permanently lame for life. At the age of fourteen years 
he was apprenticed in due form to Major Orra Shelden of the town of 
Bernardston (some dozen miles north of Leverett 'j, to learn tht^ carpen- 
ter's and joiner's trade. At the age of twenty-one years, having served 
his time, he received his ' freedom suit ' and a set of tools, as per inden- 
ture. Many buildings, mills and churches in his adopted town, even 
to-day, attest his thoroughness and reputation in this direction of labor. 

" He was an uncommonly well-informed man in many of the great de- 
partments of human knowledge. History, botany, geology, geography, 
astronomy and mathematics were his favorite studies, including also me- 
chanics and philosophy, and his knowledge of these was very accurate 
and extensive. He had many occasions to put such varied information 
to use, chiefly, however, in behalf of the public school teachers, who were 
wont in every stress to seek his counsel and advice. At the request of 
the schools, Mr. Doty at one time made a fine and perfectly mounted 
globe for their use, every portion of which he made himself with such 
accuracy of detail as to be truly considered a masterly achievement for 
those times, and the more so as perhaps no one in the town had ever 
seen one before. All these studies were pursued in the intervals of rest 
after hard days' labor and at all other possible times. His thirst for 
knowledge was ever intense, and up to the time of his death his mind 
was as active and eager for new truths as ever it had been from the first. 
In the line of ancient and colonial history he was exceedingly well read. 
This fact, together with the possession at times of a quaint, drj^ humor, 
made his conversation on these and kindred subjects not only amusing, 
but interesting and instructive. He could wield a trenchant blade in ar- 
gviment, and all sham, hypocrisy and the like, met an uncompromising 
foe in him. He was always a liberal and independent thinker, and was 
one of the founders, and the first clerk of the First Universalist Society 
of Bernardston. He was quite alone in religious views from all the rest 
of his family, but was prepared to maintain them, which he did to the 


eu(i. Mr. Doty had at tliis time the most extensive library in lown, anil 
it is true also that none wore better read than his. 

"In stature, he was a little under medium liei^'ht, and in strength was 
compact and sinewy, and capable of a great deal of labor, mental and 
physieal, both of which his constant zeal and industry worked up to their 
ma.ximum capacity. He is pleaB<antly remembered bj' all the old inhab- 
itants of Ucrnardston, as no one of their number was more gen(.'rally or 
favorably known for many acts of kindness and benevolence."

An obitury notice published at his death, reads: Elder John Doty died

a Baptist church in early life. In 1830, he graduatd from the Hamilton 


Institution and was ordained in 1832 as pastor of tho Smitlifield church. 
After sustaining this relation for seven years lie resigned, and

with his own hands upon his little farm and endeavored to bring up his 
children in the fear of the Lord. Five of them are now members of the 
church that enjoyed the earliest ministerial labors of their father. He

He had a wide reputation as a civil engineer and matiieniatician. His 
computation of the altitude of tlie Vermont mountains is accepted as au- 
thoritative. For a long time he kept a meteorological record for the 
Smithsonian Institution. 

The following obituary of Ilosea Dotoii is from the Hulhuni. Vt., 
Herald of Jan. 20, 1880 : 

" There died at Woodstock. Sunday afternoon, one of the best and most 
useful men in Vermont, who had yet lived a long life so quietly that 
comparativelj' few people outside his immediate vicinity ever heanl of 
him, and onlj' those near the man who had looked and thought care- 
fully realized how nmch he had done. He shrank from everything ap- 
proaching notoriety, and patiently did the dutj- that came to his hand, 
but yet goes to his grave honored as very few men can be. 

" His father was a farmer and laud surveyor, and he passed his younger 
days on the farm and had a common school education with his brothers 
and sisters. After leaving tlie school, however, he pursued his studies 
alone and unaided, following mathematics with special interest and until 
his acquirements in that science were probably equal to those of anj- man 
in the State, and, in recognition of this, Norwich University in 1845 gave 
him the honorary degree of Master of Arts. He readily took up his 
father's work of laud survej'ing, and in the winter of 1828-9 began what 
was to be the great work of his life when ht; went to finish a term of district 
school in the western part of his own town, which his brother had been 
compelled by sickness to leave. He took a school in the town the next 
winter, took another in Woodstock the next season after that, and had 
in all five terms in the town last named uj) to the year 1842. He had a 
private school in his home district in the fall and winter of 1840-41, a 
privfite scliool in Woodstock in th(; fall of 1842. and again in 1843; taught 
a public school in Hartford in the winter of 1842-3, and the next si^ason 
began work in his home district, to be stopped by sickness. He had a 
private school in Norwich in the fall of 184.5, and another in his own 
district the next fall. And then came the beginning of wliat stands as 
the great work of his life. It happened that there were a number of 
young men and women in Pomfrct who wanted to fit themselves for 
teaching better than they could in the common .schools, and in the spring 
of 18;)0 Mr. Doton opened a select school to meet this demand in the dis- 
trict north of his own. and from this beginning came a series of schools, 
conducted in the most unpretentious way, with some irregularly as to 
terms, sometimes with assistant teachers and sometimes without, which 
was continued through thirty-four terms, the last being in the winter of 

" The plan ilr. Doton adopted was to have private schools in the spring 
and fall, and to teach the public school, with the right to take pupils 
of his own, in the winter. Th<! attendanc(> was of course mostly from 


Poinfret itself, but there were a good many from witlioiit the town, and 
the number in all ran one term as high as 65. The original purpose of 
the enterprise was never forgotten, and the success of the work will be 
understood when it is said that fully 150 of the pupils became practical 
and successful teachers, and that nearly all of them got their whole 
preparatory training in this school. Mr. Doton's last teaching was done 
in the winter of 1860-7, when he took the school in his own district once 
more, but work on the Woodstock Railroad began soon after the term 
opened, and Mr. Doton took charge of it as engineer for the corporation 
and continued until the road was finished, and held the place as engineer 
as long as he lived. Mr. Doton worked as engineer in building the North- 
ern New Hampshire Railroad and in some other enterprises, so that his 
teaching was a good deal interrupted, and, first and last, did an endless 
amount of land surveying. He made astronomical calculations for a 
register published at AVoodstock in 1843, and continued the work until 
the publication was stopped with the issue of 1856. He began the cal- 
culations for Walton's Vermont Register in 1858, and continued them 
until the present issue. He also furnished the work for a New Hamp- 
shire register for the last eight or ten years. He invariably went as far 
as possible from seeking office, but an election to the State Senate was 
fairly forced upon him in 1865, and he was re-elected in 1866. Mr. Doton 
was in person a thick-set, medium-sized man, with full aiid regular fea- 
tures, and a remarkably kind presence. 

" 1 1 is character was pure gold, and refined gold, and he had such a power 
of Impressing himself upon those around him as is very rarely met with. 
This was the more remarkable as his manner was very quiet, he talked by 
no means easily, and from anything in his exterior seemed entirely un- 
likely to assert himself in any positive way. The fine, strong character 
was there, hewever, and no man ever came in close contact with him and 
failed to feel it. With this there seemed to be a strong love of teaching 
born within him. He had for a long time a large part of the brighter boys 
and girls of Pomfret under his charge at just the time when the mind is 
forming and outside impressions are of the importance, and it is en- 
tirely within bounds to say that, outside of family influence and the at- 
mosphere of the place, Mr. Doten stands for by far the greatest single in- 
fluence toward the right in the town's life, and it is a thing such as no 
other town ever had. He taught his pupils things from books, to be sure, 
and taught them well, but he taught them something better from his own 
head and heart, and in the most wonderful way. He interested himself in 
the life of each one, and worked in season and out of season putting the 
right ideas into his mind and wrong ones out. He lacked nothing in firm- 
ness, but attracted all by charm of mind and manner, and won such 
affection as gave him almost absolute control over them. 

"His success in reaching young folks of all sorts was remarkable. He 
said once that he never failed to touch the right chord but once— in the 
case of. a peculiarly intractable boy —and that he blamed only himself in 
that case; there was a way to reach that boy, and with more time he be- 
lieved he could have done it. This was a striking statement to come from 


a mail who spoke of hundreds of boys taken just as they come in public 
schools. The pupils are now scattered literally, from Maine to Calitomia, 
but everywhere they remember their teacher with a kind of supreme re- 
spect and affection, which seems a peculiar feeling rest^rved only for this 
man. How much the influence they so gratefully clierisli has changed 
their lives and the lives to come after them for the Instter, no man can tell: 
but, first and last, few [leoplc in this world accomplish so nmch in turning 
men's feet aright as has Hosea Doton. He goes to his grave universally 
beloved, and loved and respected most by those who knew him best." 

In the issue of the following week, January 27, 188G, the Rutland 
Herald contained these further tributes : 

■' The recent death of Hosea Doten at Woodstock has called out a great 
many expressions in regard to the character of the man, and from a width 
of range which is very remarkable in view of Mr. Doton's retiring habits 
and disposition. As a teacher he was perhaps more like Di-. Arnold of 
the f^nglish Jiugby school than anybody else known to the public, but his 
work bad even more of the personal element. It was, In fad, all person- 
ality, the school he built up entirely vanished the moment he left it, and 
his leaching of young people in the best sense never stopped so long as 
any wera within reach of his voice. .Tudge Barrett, who knew .Mr. Doton 
well, writes some interesting suggestions, thus: 

• ' The patent traits of Mr. Doton's character and th<> quality and value of 
lii.s professionol work as teacher, engineer and meteorologist need no 
further description or elaboration. As he made no show of himself beyond 
what was incident to the practical woi'k he was doing, he was not known 
to not his intimates as having a wide range of mind or attainments. 
To those who knew him intimately and appreciatingly he was as ample 
and worthy outside of what constituted his professional work and its in- 
cidents as he was within that limit. He was thoroughly a proficient in 
the various fields of the best literature of our language. Though mathe- 
matical and physical science was more coTigenial to his natural bent and 
early training, as concomitant with that he had become an eager and suc- 
cessful student of history, Inography, romance and i)oetry. His ample 
library was well stored with the standard works of (hose kinds, and that 
library had grown to its full dimensions Viy additions from time to time 
of Vjooks for use, not for show. In the department of ethics— in all that 
appertained to religion and morals — he was not onlj' book-wise, but he 
was thought-wise. He had profoundly studied and profoundly reasoned 
and mediated upon the subjects involved, and had become clear and 
mature in his ideas and views of the subjects. Whatever faith he 
liad, he held it upon the most ample and intelligent reasons. The con- 
templation of such a chai'acter and such a practical life suggests the real 
worth and value of it — quiet and unshowy as it was — as compared with 
many, nay most, known as pretentious, self-seeking, ever-challenging 
notoriety and eclat. 

"One of the pupils of the unpretentious Ponifret school expresses him- 
self thus : 

" I have known few men who had so full a measure of the verv success 


that he most desired. He never seemed to covet wealth or olFicial power 
or popular applause. One of the most diffident and retiring of men, yet 
full of just that knowledge and power which is most needed — he lived to 
see the grandchildren of his pupils growing up in a wisdom and control 
that emanated from him. He saw his pupils become teachers. He saw 
his students on the bench, at the bar, in the editorial chair, in business, 
and in all those places he could still perceive the impress that he had 
placed on the youthful mind leading to a higher plane of usefulness. He 
always seemed to me such a Christian as Socrates might have been if he 
had lived at a later day. Mr. Doteii never seemed to hate anyone. He 
didn't love some men ; he wanted nothing to do with them; but he wished 
them no harm. On the other hand, he loved his friends most abundantly. 
It is to such men that the town, the State and the country are indebted for 
more than they can repay."

Shortly after their marriage they removed from Greenfield, the shire 
town of Franklin County, to the neighboring town of Shelbui-ne Falls, a 
stirring, picturesque town on the Deerfield river. 3Ir. Foster became a 
well-known carriage builder, and they resided there till 18C5 when they 
removed to Waltliam, Mass. , where she still resides. They celebrated 
their golden wedding May 10, 1887. 

One who knows her well writes: "She is largely possessed of the in- 
dustrious and enquiring mind of her father, and has always been actively 
interested in all the great practical topics of human interest, whether in 
art, science or literature. An extensive rt^ader. of excellent judgment and 
memory, there are few women of her otherwise domestic tastes so well in- 
formed, esp(!cially as to the antiquity and general history of both England 
and America. These considerable and practical acquirements, whenever 
called for, were freely given during the early education of her children, 
and in her home, ever industrious, consci(nitious and self-sacrificing, her 
children and grandchildren will never fail to testify to the strength and 
integrity of her mind and char;icter which have long honored alike her 
Pilgrim descent, and her high ofTice as mother, adviser and helper, lioth 
partners have ever been (cheerful and liberal to a degree in their religious 
beliefs, while socially their home has always been known among their 
friends and ndatives far and near, as an open harbor of genial hospitality 
and good will."

not m. Ht^ was for a great many years a prominent dentist, on 
Bacon stre"t. Boston, Mass., but retired 1 880 to devote himself to 
literary pursuits. 11)1875 he graduated in Boston as Doctor of 
Medicine, and at the jjiibiic exei'cises of the University in Tremont 
Te e pie. delivered the valedictory. He also wrote the class poem 


and the class song. The year following his graduation was invited 
by the faculty to institute the Chair of Dental Pathology and 
Therapeutics. He is a graduate of several other schools and colleges, 
and holds membership in several professional societies, dental and 
medical. During his ])rofessional calling of nearly 25 years as a 
dentist, has also been an author, critic and composer to a consider- 
able extent, and in the lattt^r direction has composed ashisgicatest 
musical work thus far, an historical opera called " Ye Pilgrims." 
The libretto, also written by him, is founded on the exact chrono- 
logical events of the first year of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, and 
every character and principal event are strictly historical. The 
whole work comprised a continuous effort of over five years and is 
the grateful tribute of the author to the memory of his Pilgrim 
ancestor, Edward Doty, and the other heroic compatriots of the 
Mayflower, who survived the melancholy first winter at Plymouth. 
Besides also a smaller operatic work, on a " Legend of the Shet- 
land Islands," he has composed nearly 100 songs, duetts, trios 
and quartettes, which have been published in various cities of the 
country from time to time during the last 15 or 20 years, and 
among them are several which enjoy a standard popularity, both 
at home and abroad. From the first of his professional career he 
has been a regular contributor to certain principal medical, dental 
and musical Journals, and in 1885 had several volumes of an anci- 
ent, historical and biographical nature in various stages of prepara- 
tion for publication. 

In the early part of the War of the Rebellion he enlisted in the 
27th Mass. Vols., one of the original regiments of Burnside's ex- 
pedition, and served in the battles of Roanoke, Va., Newbern and 
other fields in North Carolina. In the two monster musical " Peace 
Jubilees" (National, 1869, and International, 1872), held in Boston 
under the presidency of Mr. P. S. Gilmore, the originator, he was 
one of the first flutes in both grand orchestras, which numbered 
each 1000 selected players from all the principal cities of the United

son Horatio Gates Hough and Martha Pitcher. He d. Lowville, N. Y., 
June 11, 1885. His widow lives there with her children. 

Dr. Hough was a celebrated historian, biographer and stati.stician. He 
entered the academy at Lowville, N. Y'., at fourteen years of age, and 
September, 1840, entered Union College, from which he graduated in 184B. 
After teaching for several years in New Y^ork State and Ohio, he published, 
in 1846, his first work, a catalogue of the plants of Lewis Co., N. Y., and 
then entered the Medical College at Cleveland, O., from which he gradu- 
ated, ^I. D., in 1848, and began the practice of his profession at Someiville, 
St. Lawrence Co., N. Y". After four years experience in his medical 
practice, he became interested in the subject of local history, and deciding 
to adopt literature as his profession, he removed, in 1852, to Lowville, 
Lewis Co.. N. Y., and began his " History of St. Lawrence and Franklin 
Counties, N. Y.," which he published in 1853. 













From this time on his life was almost wholly occupied in literaiy. 
historical and stal istial worlv . His list of published works includes thirty- 
three on history, twelve on .scientific subjects, seven relating to consti- 
tution and laws, and nine on statistics, besides a number of biof^niphies. 
He was the superintendent of the census of the State of New York, 18o5 
and 18(i5. and made the preparations for the census of 1^75. He origi- 
nated, in 18(51, the "New York Civil List," and in 18T2 publL-^hed "The 
Gazatteer of New York." Me prepared an "Ab.straet of the Laws of New 
York, 1777-188'")."' a work of great research and labor, which is j'ct in 
manuscript, but being of imm(?nse value will probably eventually be pub- 
lished by the State. During the War of the Rebellion he served as 
surgeon of the 97th Regiment, New Y^ork Volunteers for nine months, 
and four months more as an inspector of the United States Sanitary Com- 
mission. A fine sketch of his life by his friend, Henry R. Stiles, A. M. , M. 
D., with a portrait was published in the "New York Cenealogical and Bio- 
graphical Record " for April, 1886; a sketch of his life also appears in the 
Report of the Regents of the State of New Y'ork. 188().

lie prepared for college and graduated from the New Bedford High 
School December 31, 1849.^being then fifteen years of age. 

He says : "In March, 1850, took clerkship with H. V. Davis <feCo. , 
chemical and oil manufacturers. After four years with this house, was 
three years with James G. Howland, oil manufacturer, and in 1858 
moved to New York, continuing in the oil trade, traveling in the Southern 
States until Dec. ,1860, where my experience was closed at Charleston, 
S. C, as it was not safe for a Northern man to remain. Returning to 
New York, and being an ardent supporter of the Union, I was elected a 
member in April, 1861, of the eighth company. Seventh Regiment, but 
did not go with them to Washington, as 1 could not get a uniform. 

"In May, 1861, I commenced raising a volunteer company for the 
Fortieth New York (Fernando Wood's Mozart) Regiment. This organ- 
ization, coming from Democratic source, and I being a New England 
abolitionist by training and belief, I succeeded in transferring a full com- 
pany of maximum strength — eighty enlisted men — to the Plymouth 
Church, " Beecher Regiment," which was mustered into the United States 
service June 20, 1861, as the First Long Island Regiment, becoming in 
May, 1862, the Sixty-seventh New York State Regiment, to help out the 
State's quota, said State not recognizing them in 1861, but needing their 
number in 1862. I was originally commissioned as Second Lieutenant, 
Company E, promoted to First Lieutenant, thence to the regimental staff 


as Regimental Quartermaster, ami lastly commigsioned as Captain ami 
honorably mustered out of the United [states service for expiiation of 
enlisted term of three years, July 4, 18G4. 

■' In 18G5 I made a new connection in the oil business, travelled exten- 
sively through the JSouth, seeing the ruins of my former trade and the 
almost complete annihilation of their industrial system. In 1867 I went 
after a fortune In boring oil wells in Canada; did not succeed, and made 
my great mistake in life by leaving the oil trade, as I was disgusted with 
anything relating to oil. I took a Government situation in the United 
States Internal Kovenue Department as inspector, and subsequently be- 
came Deputy Collector in the First New York Collection District, remain- 
ing for eight years in charge of returns of legacies and successions, banks 
and bankers, and bonds and assessments. My political head was cut off 
by Cleveland's first election, and then I took the average American's > x- 
perience in ^Vall Street, with the usual lack of success. For the past six 
years I have been connected again with the oil trade." 

Since 18G0 he has been a member of Crescent Lodge, No. 402 F. and A. 

31. In 1867 became a comrade of the G. A. R. He lives Brooklyn. N. 
Y., and is a member of the Union League Club of that city.

4. TllO.MAS DOTY, or DOTEX son Edward Doty and Faith 
Clarke, was probably their third child. He was born about 1(541. He 
was a seaman, but lived and died Plymouth. lie was one of the first pur- 
chasers of Middleboro, Mass., 1CG2, and his interest there remained in the 
family till disposed of by his grandson, Ijut it is probable that he never 
lived there. 

lu l()()7-8, January 17, he conveyed to John Smith all his interest in 
the land at Dartmouth received as his share from the estate of his 

lie was granted, 1G70, Dec. 18, Ijy the town of Plymuulli " U acres. 
Alcarraus field to sett a house upon." This plot, to which he 
quently added by purchase, lies on Mount Pleasant Street in Plj'mouth. 
and will be found described in 'Sir. Davis' excellent work, so often re- 
ferred to here, "Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth," page 323, where it 
is stated that the house built by Thomas Doty at this time is still 

A fairly accurate inventory of his property about tliis time is probably 
given, for having gotten into a difficulty which obliged him to leave 
town, we find recorded, 1C71-2, ]\Iarch 5: " In reference to a frame of 
an house framed by Josias Wormall according to agreement with Thomas 
Dotey, the said Dotey being departed the goument (etc.), the Court or- 
dered that a proffer be made to Joseph Dotey the agent of the said 
Thomas Dotey to fulfill the couenants of his brother and take the frame, 
or if he refuses the said Wormall to sell." 

And Oct. 30 of the same year 1072, "Mary Churchill coniplaineth 
that Thomas Doten is dei)arted the gou'inent, and it is doubtful whether 
hee will returne againe and hauing left her in a poor deplored condition 
and hath sued out an attachment on such goods and chatties and all dues 
and rights appertaining to the said Doten to be for her support." The 
jury, finding in her favor, she thereupon attached " Item. Thomas Dotens 
third of a boate in ptenorship with Lift. ^Morton and Thomas Howes : his 
third likewise of a psell of netts in the same ptenorship. with his third of 
the roads ankers and sailes apjiertainiug to the said boats: as alsoe a gun 
in the costody of Ephraim Morton : a rapier at George ]\Iortons : forty 
shillings for the hier of the boate due from Richard Willis, and a psell of 
boards in the costody of dluers psons." 

Thomas Doty did return, however, to Plymouth, and, as noted above, 
completed his house there and lived in it, and as he married there shortly 
after this a wife whose name was " Mary." it is to be hoped, and will be 
here assumed, that it was this Mary Churchill whose heart was once more 
made glad. 


The foregoing and following items would seem to indicate that tishinj^ 
was his special employment. 

1678. Oct. 29. "In reference to the complaint of Edward Gi'ay and John 
Rickard against Tliomas Dotey and his companie or boats crew, in refer- 
ence vnto theire rvmuing theire l)oate against the said Grayes boate, the 
Court orders that the said Dotey and his said companie shall pay the sume 
of twenty and fine shillings towards the losse of an anchor and pts of a 
road which was lost by the said boatesrunning one against another*, which 
sume is to be payed to the said Gray and Rickard, vnto whom the said 
anchor and road belonged, and whereas the said m^' of the boate was 
much to blame respecting the prmises, it is ordered by the Court, that 
hee shall beare a double share of the said award, and that the witnesses 
who witnessed in the case be allowed seauen shillings." 

After this he was probably more discreet on both land and sea, for no 
further complaints are on record against him. Several deeds recorded 
show that he was thrifty and industrious. It is probable that he died 
early in 1679. His will is dated Dec. 4, 1678, and proved March 3d fol- 
lowing, and leaves all his property to his wife, Mary. 

She married at Plymouth, February 8, 1687-8, Henry Churchill of Plymp- 
ton, Mass., who was born at Plymouth, 1658, and was a son of .John 
Churchill and Hannah Pontus, his wife. There does not seem to have 
been any issue from this second marriage. Henry Churchill and wife 
continued to live at Plympton and deeds on record show that he conveyed 
his extensive property to his wife's son by her first marriage. 

1714. July 8. Henry Churchill of Plimton conveys "in consideration 
of love to my dutiful son-in law Thomas Doty of Cape Cod " all his lands 
in Plymouth, Plimton and Rochester, to be his at the decease of said 
Henry^nd his wife Mary Churchill. The title "son-in-law" used here 
imdoubtedly means "stepson." 

1721-2. March 6. Mary Churchill of Cape Cod, late of Rochester, 
widow of Henry Churchill of Plimton, conveyed " in consid^ of love godo 
will and affection toward my Grandson Thomas Doty of Cape Cod " " all 
her tract of land in the 16 shilling purchase at IVUddleboro." By these deeds 
her grandson came into possession at his majority of a very considerable 

Thomas Doty and Mary, his wife, had children:

1702. Thomas Doty sells a plot of land at Plymouth. 170s. Thomas 
Doty, cooper, buys of Return Waite a house inPlj^mouth, one-half of 
which he sold in 1711: and though other deeds of property to and from 
him are on record at Plymovith 1718 and subsequently, it was probably 
about thi.s lime that he removed to Truro, on Cape Cod, Mass. 

Here he did a prosperous business as cooper and amas.sed considerable 
property before his death. As has been noted before, 1714, July N, his 
stepfather, Henry Churchill of Plympton, conveyed "in consideration of 
love to my dutiful son-in-law, Thomas Doty of Cape Cod" all his lands 
at Plymouth, Plympton and Rochester, to be his at the decease of said 
Henry and his wife Mary Churchill. Though Thomas Doty did not live 
long enough to come into possession of this property, inasmuch as his 
mother survived him, ho probably had the care of it. 

His wife Elizabeth died at Truro proliably before 1720. In 1721 her 
brother, Thomas Harlow of Plymouth was appointed guardian for her son 
Thomas. And itwas probably about this time that Thomas Doty matritMi 
a second wife, Mercy, whose family name has not been discovered, and 
who survived him. He died Truro, Mass., probably January, 1722. His 
widow married September, 1722, Jonathan Barnes, b. 1084, son Jonathan 
Barnes and Elizabeth Hedge, as his second wife, and by him had children. 

Thomas Doty's will is on record in J5arnstable Count}-, Mass. .dated 
^lay 9, 1721, and probated February 8, 1722. It begins as follows: 

" Thomas Dotey of Cape Cod in the Constablewick of Truro, County 
of Barnstable, being languishing under sickness" and gives 1st, to wife 
Mercj', 20£ — and use of house; 2d, "to Joseph Abbitt the child that now 
lives with me" 20i" — when he reaches the age of 21 years. 3d, to my son 
Thomas Dotey all the rest of my estate, he to maintain his grandmother 
]Mary Churchill during her natural life. 

By other papers on record in Barnstable County it aiip(>Mrs lit> had a 
cooper's shop and warehouse on Cape Cod, and several other houses, all 
amovmting to considerable value ; also that lie left but one child, his 
son Thomas, for whom Joseph Hatch was appointed guardian. March 8, 
1722, an inventory of his estate in Plymouth County was also taken, show- 
ing him to be a large prop(>rty owner there. 

Tliomas Doty had but one child, and that by his first wife. Elizabeth.

3235. THOMAS DOTY, only son Thomas Doty and Elizabeth Har- 
low, b. Plymouth, Mass., Jan. 26, 1704. 

Colonel Thomas Doty, mariner, soldier and innkeeper, was undoubt- 
edly the last member of his branch to bear the family name. Doty. His 
was an eventful life. At his majority he came into possession of the lands 
in Plymouth, Plympton and Rochester deeded to his father by Henry 
Churchill in 1714, and to considerable estate at Middleborough, Mass., 
through the gift of his grandmother, Mary Chui-chill, in 1722. To this 
was added more property at Plymouth, which he received by the will of 


his f,'raiul£aLher, William Harlow, aud almost the I'litiro estate which his 
father had accumulated at Truro on Cape Cod. His subsequent history 
must be gleaned largely from the entries on the records at Plymouth and 
Cape Cod. 

1725. May 1. Thomas Doty of Truro, cooper, sells the house in IMy- 
niouth and other plots there that belonged to his father. 

1T2(3. Thomas Doty of Truro sells land which formerly belonged to iiis 
grandfather, William Harlow, aud given to said Thomas in his will. 

1726. Dec. Thomas Doty of Cape Cod buys the house in Plymouth 
formerly owned by his father. 

1733. April o. Thomas Doty of Provincetown, on Cape Cod, seafaring 
man, sells part of his property at Middleborough to Samuel Bartlett, and 
this deed was witnessed by his cousin, John Doten. 

1743. Thomas Doty, mariner, of Plymouth, sells more land at :S[icldle- 
borough, Mass. 

1744. He mortgages certain property at Plymouth, which mortgage 
was satisfied and discharged October 23, 174.5. 

From this time on he appears frequently on the records as loaning 
money on bond and mortgage, and as buyhig and selling at Plymouth ami 
Middleborough ; but from 1747 to 1755 his name is generally entered as 
Thomas Doty, gentleman, of Plymouth. There is nothing in the records 
at either place to indicate that he was ever a resident of Middleborough. 

The name of Thomas Doty appears among those of the " Louisburg 
Soldiers" in 1745, at first as Lieutenant of the First Company and later as 
Captain of the Tenth Company of the Ninth Regiment, Col. Jo.seph 
Dwight, and he undoubtedly took part in the expedition which laid siege 
to and captured the French tow^n : and when what is known as the ' ■ French 
and Indian War " broke out, ten or twelve years later, he was again 
called into service, this time in comnuind of a regiment, and Colonel 
Thomas Doty with his regiment, which appears to have been enlisted 
mainly in Plymouth County, was on duty at Fort William Henry, on 
Lake George, and took part in the expeditions of 1758 and 1759 that finally 
resulted in the capture from the French of Fort Ticonderoga. 

At the close of the war Colonel Doty returned to Plymouth, and in 175!t 
bought there the cooper shop and warehouse of Perez Tillson, his son-in- 
law, and the firm of Doty & Tillson was in existence there for several 
years, doing a general business as merchants. He soon after this, how- 
ever, removed to Boston, as 1761, Thomas Doty, Esq., of Boston, Mass., 
sells to Perez Tillson the shop and warehouse above conveyed. 

And now the successful cooper, mariner, merchant and soldier betook 
himself to a new profession, and one which was to make him better known 
to future generations than any of his previous employments or services 
could do. Tn Boston, in 1760, and for several years after he kept a favor- 
ite public house at the sign of the " Lamb." Just how long he kept this 
or at what time he removed is uncertain, but probably at least as early as 
1770 he was located at Stoughtou, at that time in Suffolk County, now in 
Norfolk County, Mass., in the house which has become historical under 
the name of "The Doty Tavern." 

THE FA:\IILY of TH0]\[AS doty. 273 

Mr. D. T. V. Huntoon, writing in the AmericcUi Monthly of July, 
1876, describes the old tavern and its owner, as follows: 

" The Doty Tavern at Stoughton. This old house is situated at the foot 
of Blue Hill, the highest elevation in Eastern Massachusetts. The atten- 
tion of the traveler is at once directed to the house by its quaint and old- 
fashioned appearance. It stands modestly back from the ' Taunton old 
road,' in former days the King's Highway, between Boston and Taunton, 
which passing it crosses Doty's Plain and ascends Cherry Hill. 

" It strikes one as a house that has a history of its own. Above its 
old-fashioned gambrel roof rise two chimneys of huge proportions, and its 
narrow windows serve to remind us of pre-ievolutionary times, of its bet- 
ter days, and we would fain listen to the stories it might tell, could it 
speak. It was originally owned by a man who was prominent in the 
affairs of town, county and State. Captain John Shepard built it about 
the year 1737. 

" One hundred years ago it was a famous hostelry, celebi-ated for its 
good cheer. Here could be found entertainment for man and beast. 
The proprietor was jovial Tom Doty, known among more quiet and 
sedate persons as Colonel Thomas Doty. He it was who kept the best 
viands, and could mix the best glass of grog of any landlord in all the 
country around. No stage driver so ignorant as not to know where 
Doty's Tavtrn was. His inn was the centre of all gossip; around his 
capacious hearth were wont to congregate on winter evenings the village 
wiseacres, and discuss over pipe and bowl questions pertaining to town 
and province. 

"John Adams tells us that there were many such taverns in his day, and 
that the landlords exercised a potent political influence in their immediate 
vicinity. Without doubt ' mine host ' Doty was a man of some preten- 
sions to political knowledge ; certain it is that he was known at the time 
of which we write to be highly indignant at the treatment the provinces 
had lately received from the mother country, and he favored the 
embryotic movement soon to burst into open rebellion. The time had 
come when the people of the Province of Massachusettes Bay had become 
enraged at the blind policy of George HI., and his Parliament; bold 
patriots resolved that throughout the thirteen Provinces, 'Congresses,' 
so called in order to obviate the provisions of the Regulating Act, which 
forbade town-meetings except by permission of the Governor, should be 
held in the several counties, and in this matter Suffolk County took the 
lead. After it was decided to hold such congress, the grave question 
which presented itself to the patiots in Suffolk County was, ' Where 
shall we hold it?' 'At what town shall it convene?' In the first 
place, the spot should be central, retired. Neither Boston nor Salem 
possessed these requisites, and Samuel Adams, who expected the gravest 
results from this assembly, strenuously desired that some inland town 
should be selected, where, free from interference, the congress might 
meet, with none to molest or make them afraid. This desire was com- 
municated to Doctor (afterwards MajoV-General) Joseph Warren, and it 
was agreed that a congress should be held as soon as practicable, and 


the town of Stovighton being, by its geogiapliical position. c<'iitml. and 
D )ty's Tavern of good repute, it was decided that the meeting should 
take place at the town and tavern aforesaid. 

"On the morning of Tuesday, the lUth nf August, 1774. all was hurry 
and bustle at the wayside inn. The delegates from the several towns in 
the county were to assemble here, and the landlord Doty must put on his ' bib and tucker.' From the farm-house over the vvay, which, built 
in the time of the Indian wars, hail for protection its second story projec- 
ting over the first, Squire Koyall sent his slaves to assist the slaves of 
Colonel Doty in making preparation for the distinguised guests. 

"Early in the forenoon the delegates began to arrive. The members 
from the inland towns came on horseback, while young Dr. Warren with 
his Boston friends, drove up in a stylish berlin, drawn by four horses, 
with a coachman in livery on the box and a footman on the rumble. 
From old Stoughtoii came Parson Dunbar, in gown and bands; a stout 
old soldier he, for things temporal as well as spiritual, lie had fought 
for king and crown in other days, when his Majesty needed help against 
the French; but the oppressive acts of the British Parliament had 
forfeited all claims upon his loyalty, and he came, against the advice of 
many af his friends and his own son, who held a civil office under the 
crown, to meet with the county congress at Doty's Tavern. 

"Before this congress adjourned, the following resolutions were 
passed : 

" ' WiiEHEAS, It ajipears to us that the Parliament of Groat Britain, to 
the dishonor of the king, in violation of the honor of thei nation, have, in 
direct infraction of the charter of this Province, contrary to Magna 
Charta, the Bill of Rights, the national and constitutional rights of 
British subjects, by an act called the Boston Port Bill, a bill for amending 
the charter of this Province, and another bill for the impartial admin- 
istration of justice, with all the parade and administration of justice, 
attempted to reduce this colony to an unparallcni state of slavery; and 

" ' WiiEWEAS, Several Colonies being justly and properly alarmed at 
this lawless and tyrannical exertion of power, have entered into combina- 
tion for our relief, and hav<' published sundry resolutions which they are 
determined to abide by, in support of common interest, we earnestly 
recommend to our brethren in the several towns and districts in this 
county, to appoint members to attend a county convention to be held at 
I )edham on the sixth day of September next, to dt'liberate and deternnne 
upon all such matters as the distressing circumstances of this province 
may require.' 

" It would appear that, although all present at Doty's Tavern were 
unanimous and firm and determiniid to resist the encroachments of Groat 
Britain, the delegates did not deem themselves especially authorized to 
negotiate the affair of a county congress. They therefore adjourned, and 
at a subsequent meeting passed the celebrated 'Suffolk Resolves.' 
which, drafted by General Warren, were approved by the Continental 
Congr(!ss at Carpenter's Hall. Philadelphia, on the seventeenth of Sep- 


tember, 1774, and which, in the words of Galloway. ' contained a com- 
plete declaration of war against Great Britain.' 

" During the siege of Boston the old tavern was occupied by refugees, 
and some of the exiled town officers sought its secure retreat. Beneath 
the roof of the Doty Tavern the Marquis de Lafayette rested while 
journeying from Newport to Boston; it was during the war, and the news 
spread quickly that the gallant Frenchman was a guest at the old inn. In 
the morning, when he had paid his reckoning and was ready to depart, he 
found the townspeople gathered in the road before him, who with cheers 
and good wishes bade him God speed. The great man of the town, the 
first General to fall in defence of his country, the leader of France, the 
old parson, and the old landlord, have passed away; but the old 
still stands under the shadow of Blue Hill, from whose summit the 
sentry with tinder-box in hand has long since been removed, and the Doty 
Tavern, with its associations and remembrances, must, while it stands, 
bear an honorable place among the historic mansions of our country." 

Col. Doty at this time was too old to take part in the active hcstilitles 
that followed, but he gave such substantial aid and comfort to the 
patriots as he could, and throughout the Revolution his house was a 
general rendezvous and assembly for those who favored the cause of the 
Colonies. He lived to see that cause successful and the independence of 
the States recognized. In 1790, he was still living at Stoughton, and sold 
in that year the last of the land at Middleborough, which had been deeded 
to him nearly seventy years *)efore by his grandmother, Mary Churchill. 
The exact date of his death is not known, but as he was at this time 
eighty-six years of age, it probably occurred soon after and at Stoughton; 
nor is there on record anything to indicate the date of his marriage or the 
name of his wife. Tombstones on Burial Hill at Plymouth, alone furnish 
the items that show that he had an only daughter.

5. SAMUEL D(JTY was the fourth son ami child of Edward Doty and 
Faith Clarke, and was born at Plymouth, on the High Cliff, probably in 

lie was the ancestor of the very large and influential l)rauch of thi' 
Doty family, who, from the State of New Jersey, have gone forth as 
pioneers to the West and the South. He is first mentioned on the records 
of Plymouth, January 1st, 1667-8, as one of a coroner's jury in an inquest 
on a child kept by John Smalley, Sr., of Easthara, on Cape Cod, which had 
been found dead in the woods. Plis name is there written, Samuel Doten. 
In the same year, 1668, Julj' 16, it is recorded that " Samuel Dotey of 
Eastham in the government of New Plymouth, in New England " conveys 
to Benajah Dunham of the said town of Eastham for a consideration of 
8£, "all his upland and meadow land in the townshij) of Dartmouth in 
the government of New Plymouth, which was granted to said Samuel 
Dotey, as his dividend by the will of his father, Edward Dotey, deceased, 
and in said Dartmouth, commonly known a^ Coaksett." This deed is 
signed Samuel Dotey. Benajah Dunham was a son of the John Dunham 
who resided next to Edward Doty on the High Cliff at Plymouth, in the 
house that the said John bought in 1649 from Thurston Clarke. 

Samuel Doty's name next occurs in an affair which is thus mentioned in 
" Freeman's Histoiy of Cape Cod." "In the year 1669, a vessel was I'ast 
ashore on Cajto Cod, and a controversy arose bt^tween Thos. More, the 
claimant and owner of the cargo, and Samuel Doty and others of Eastham, 
in regard to salvage: and agreement was finally concluded October 2iHh, 
1669, and sanctioned by the Court." " F^rince's Chronicles of Plymouth " 
states, " 14th 2d month 1668 Thomas More's vessel cast away at Cape 
Cod in ye storm w"n 4 persons perished and much wealth was lost." 

And in the records of the Colony we find 1669, Oct. 29. " At a court 
held at Plymouth. Whereas there hath bine a joynt agreement by and be- 
tween Mr. Thomas More and Sanmel Dotey and seuerall others of the towne 
of Eastham about lalioure in takeing ^p of monies cast away in a wracke 
belonging to the .said 3Iore att Cape Cod and the said 3Iore haueing 
alowed vnto the said Dotej- four shillings a day there remaining vpon 
account due the sumo of thrt;e pounds and seauenteon shillings due vnto 
the said More from the said Dotey, hee haueing layed out the said sume 
in a mare and colt the mare being .a blacke mare the top of the left eare 
l)eing cut-off, and a little bitt cutt out vnder the farr eare hee haueing 
nothing els to pay and loaueing it to the determination of the Court, the 
Court hau(; orden^d that the said mare and colt be taken vp and apprised 
by two indifferent men att mony prise and to be responsible to answare 


vnto the said More or his order the said sume and charges of takeing her 
and her oolt vp; and incase the mare and colt comes to more tlien the 
said sume and charges, then tlie ouerplusse to be returned to the said 

No further mention of Samuel Doty appears in the records of Ply- 
mouth or vicinity. The old town records of Eastham, Mass., are now at 
Orleans on Cape Cod. A careful examination of the births, marriages and 
deaths, also of the proceedings of town meetings, all of which seem to 
be entered quite full}' between the years 1648 and 170.5, and later, reveals 
no trace or mention of either Samuel Doty or of Thomas More. The 
"earmarks" seem fully recorded and there are lists of the freemen in 
1654, 167.5 and 1684, but nothing to indicate a residence of either. The 
next mention of Samuel Doty is in the town records of Piscataway, ]\Iid: 
dlesex County, N. J., where in 1675 he was commissioned Lieutenant of the 
military company of New Piscataway, of which Francis Drake was Cap- 
tain, his commission being renewed in 1678. 

The village of Piscataway lies about two miles east of New Brunswick, 
the county seat of Middlesex County, N. J., and is a place of far less im- 
portance to-day than in 1678, at which period it was one of the most 
flourishing settlements in the State, and in its hotel the Governor and 
Council frequently met to enact laws and hold general court. In 1665 
Philip Carteret, the new Governor of New Jersey, despatched agents into 
New England, who published what was known as the ' • Concessions of 
the Lord Proprietors." These concessions, by their liberal inducements, 
such as property in estates and liberty in religion, resulted in quite a 
migration. Several settlements were formed, and to Piscataway there 
seems to have come representatives of many families from Eastham and 
other towns on Cape Cod, among them Benajah and Benjamin Dunham, 
John Smalley, Hopewell Hull, Francis Drake and Samuel Doty. While 
the date of this emigration does not appear with certainty, it is probable 
that it was soon after 1670. 

In 1678, Samuel Doty of Piscataway was licensed to marry Jeane Har- 
man of the same town. 1682, his name is in list of freeholders. From 
1678 to 1096, his name appears in frequent deeds as a purchaser of lands 
in the vicinity. 

1687-8. Jan. 21. SaiBuel Dotey sells 104 acres at Piscataway, part of 
that which he bought in 1678. 

1690. Jan. 6. Samuel Dotie buys 100 acres there from Benjamin Hull. 

1695. Oct. 3. He buys 100 acres there of the Proprietors. 

1696. He buys 125 acres more. 

Samuel Dotie's "'cattle mark" appears on the town records of Piscat- 
away, being the third name in the original entry which, though not 
dated, appears to have been made before 1686. 

In the first list of Freeholders in 1689 his name appears as Samuel 
Doty. In a list of "All the Inhabitants," made at about the same time, 
he is entered Samuel Dotey, and again in a similar way in the of 


The first congregation of Seventh Day Baptists in New Jersey had its 
origin in this township, in tlie following manner : "In the year 1700, Ed- 
uiond Dunham, a Baptist exhorter and the owner of 110 acres of the 
town lands, felt called upon to admonish Heztikiah Bonham for working 
on Sunday ; whereupon Bonham defied him to prove Divine authority 
for keeping holy the first day of the week. Dunham, after investiga- 
tion, failed to do so to his own gratification, consequently he himself 
renounced the observance of the first day. In the year 1707 he formed a 
congregation of Seventh Day Baptists, and was appointed its first pastor. 
His ministrations continued until 1784, when he died at seventy three 
years of age, being succeeded by his son Jonathan, who preached until 
his death from smallpox at the age of eighty-six years, in 1777." 

The first record of nit'inbers of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of 
Piscataway is not dated, but was apparently made, 1707, or previously, 
and in it appear the names of Sanmel Doty and John Doty, his son. 

Samuel Doty's will is on record in the office of the Secretary of State 
of New Jersey, at Trenton. It is dated Sept. 18, 1715, and was proved 
Nov. 8, 1715, showing his death between those dates. It reads: "Sam- 
uel Dotie Sr of PLscataway, Middlesex Co., N. J., yeoman, being very 
sick and weak of body, but of sound mind," etc., and bequeaths to his 
" well beloved son Samuel Dotie, five shillings;" and the balance of his 
estate to "his dearly beloved wife .lane," whom he appoints sole execu- 
trix of the w^ill. Ills friends, Edmund Dunhiun and Hugh Dunn, are the 

It is probable that each of hi.s sons had been given farms previous to 
his death, for before this time they were all in comfortable possession 
of lands and their "cattle marks" were entered on the town records. 
His widow was living, 1717, as appears by the will of her son Edward 
of that date. The date of her death does not appear. 

In all the records of whatever nature, State, county, town, church or 
private manuscripts in which Samuel Doty's name appears in New Jer- 
sey, it is never spelled as Doten. It is written in various ways. Doty, 
Dotey, Dotie, Dottoy, Dote, but never with the termination "en." Nor 
among his descendants, wherever they are foiuid, has there been any 
indication of the use of that termination, which seems to have been pe- 
culiar to Plymouth and the Eastern coast. It is true that the third 
generation of descendants of Samuel Doty in New Jersey did to some 
extent adopt the name " Doughty," and their descendants have in some 
few eases kept that name, the great majority, however, returning to the 
original spelling. "Doty." This change to Doughty was an error and 
the result of imperft>ct information, caused unquestionably by the pres- 
ence in the same vicinity of members of the " Doughty" family. 

The English family of Doughty, which is a numerous one, had a num- 
ber of representatives in the early settlement of this country, and by 17o0 
nearly every county of New York and New Jersey had its family, which 
frequently included men of prominence and influence. Further, by this 
time both States were completely controlled by the English, and not only 
the Governor and Council but the subordinate officin's were generally of 


this nationality. Grauta of lands, etc., were perliaps not only more readily 
made to applicants of their own nation, but wherever these or other 
"orders" were recorded, the names were anglicised, and ihus it happens 
in a nnmber of cases that parties who always wrote their name "Doty " 
have received grants of lands, etc., by the name of " Doughty" which is 
so entered on the official records of the State, the officials assuming that 
the name must be a corruption. of the name of Doughty, with which they 
were more familiar. 

One very prominent family of Doughtys in these States was descended 
from the Rev. Francis Doughty, the son of a Bristol (England) Alderman, 
who had been vicar of Sodbury, in Gloucester, and who came to Taunton,, in 1639, but having some difficulties with his people there removed 
about 1042 to Maspeth, now Newton, on Long Island, in New York State. 
His son, Elias Doughty of Flushing, L. I., became a very large landholder 
there and a man of high position and great influence. By 1750 his de- 
scendants were to be found prominent not only on Long Island, but in New 
York City, in Westchester, Dutchess and Ulster counties, N. Y., and in 
Somerset. Morris, Middlesex and other counties in New Jersey, in a great 
many oases owning farms or lands in the immediate vicinity of descend- 
ants of Samuel Doty. It is not to be wondered at that this generation of 
Dotys in New Jersey, surrounded by the more English families and influ- 
ences, having lost all knowledge of the emigration of its ancestor from 
Cape Cod, should have assumed that in some way the name had been cor- 
rupted, and that they were of the same origin as their neighbors of the 
Doughty family. The mystery is, that the succeeding generations should 
return so universally to the original ■' Doty," for there was still no knowl- 
edge of their eastern ancestry, and the investigations made for the pur- 
pose of this history have been to the modern generations of Doty-s in New 
Jersey the first intimation they have had of their descent from the Edward 
Doty who landed at Plymoulh. It is probable that the events of the 
Revolution served to bring back the original spelling; the Dotys of this 
family in every case championing the cause of the Colonies, while many 
of the more loyal Doughty family stood by the mother country in the 
quarrel, and this separation of interests led perhaps to the distinction of 
the names. 

This confusion of names, however, has added very greatly to the labor 
of collecting genealogical statistics of this family in New Jersey, and there 
has been perhaps no branch that has offered greater difficulties in the 
search for and the tr icing out of its lineage, nor conferred more satisfac- 
tion in the successful solution of these problems than the decendants of 
this Samuel Doty. For the eastern branches of the family one may step 
into a well regulated library in any city of our land, and in a short time, by 
consulting Savage's "Dictionary of New England Genealogy," and the 
various local histories of towns and counties of our Eastern States, ob- 
tain records or clues to records that will greatly facilitate his work. The 
town records, too, of all the early settlements in Massachusetts, and to a 
certain extent in the other New England States, have been kept with care 
from the first; they frequently include lists of births, mai'riages and 


deaths, and these have boeu arranged into families and sometimes through 
the patient labor of some genealogical collector indexed so that examina- 
tion is made eomparativoly easy. These records, too, escaped the destruc- 
tive devastation of the Kovolutiouary War, and their careful preservation 
lias been always a matter of solicitude. 

All this is changed and tiie difficulties largely increased when one seeks 
to Hud these early records in New Jersey.. Here there are few dates of 
births or deaths gi%'en except upon church records, and even these are 
vi'rj- rare. The Uevolutionary armies, while marching through the Stati-. 
destroyed many of the county records, or they were removed out of harm's 
way and so effectually that they were never returned. A local historian 
of this vicinity says ; 

"More than once during the Revolution Piscataway found itself in the 
track of contending armies, its name thus becoming historically embalmed 
in the reports of the eommaudants of the opposing forces. Early in the 
war Xew Brunswick was for many months the base of supplies for the 
English armj', and much of the time the headquarters of the Gtmeral com- 
manding. The people of the surrounding country were obliged to Ijillet 
the troops and furnish forages. This occasioned much distress, of which 
Piscataway had its full share. The sufferings of the jieople were not only 
caused bj' their being forced to impoverish themselves in order to grant 
legitimate supplies to the British, but by such marauding and plundering 
by the troops as would have di-sgraced the followers of an eastern satrap. 
General Howe's army at this time was given up to indiscriminate and uni- 
versal thieving, the officers not only countenancing the outrages, but par- 
ticipating as well. The men were licentious, and permitted to commit, on 
Tory and Whig alike, every manner of rapine, violence and cruelty. Gov- 
ernor Livingston, in a speech before the Assembly in 1777, declared that 
the English soldiers, while in New Jei'sey, warred upon decrepit age and 
defenseless youth, plundered friends and foes, destroj'ed public records 
and private monuments, and. to quote his own words, 'violated the chas- 
tity of women, disfigured private dwellings of taste and elegance, and in 
the rage of impiety and barbarism profaned edifices dedicated to Almighty 
God ! '" 

In this case, too, Savage gave no indication of Samuel Doty .as a son of 
Edward Doty. 

It had been apparent quite early in tiiese investigations that there had 
been a numerous representation of the family in Xew Jersey. In October, 
1872, after an examination of various county records there, many of the 
families were traced to an origin in the village of Basking Ridge in Somer- 
set County, N. J. The records of that county unfortunately extended no 
further back than 1783, all previous to that having been burned during 
the Revolution. In that village several aged members of the families 
were found whose memory helped to furnish many details, but nothing 
previous to Revolutionarj- times, or to point to any other locality. Later, 
however, an examination of some documents in possession of the State 
Department at Trenton showed the existence in 1G75 to 1715 of a Samuel 
Doty at Piscataway, but nothing to show his origin or to connect him with 


the family later at Basking Ridge. A thorough search through all the 
town, county and church records of the vicinity of Piscataway failed 
then to furnish more, and the missing records of the years between 1710 
and 1 783 seemed to have been lost forever, when an old manuscript in the 
most accidental way appeared, it being held in the family of Joshua 
Doughty, Esq., of Somerville, X. J., who did not esteem himself a Doty, 
and having been written about 1825 from the memory of an aged lady, 
but with such indistinct references as to make it unavailable except to one 
who had studied the genealogy. It was as follows: 

Copy of a record in possession of the late Joshua Doughty, Esq., of 
Somerville, N. J., written by his aunt, Miss Susan Doughty, before her 
death in 1825. 


■'Samuel Doughty my great grandfather lived at Piscataway. His chil- 
dren were Samuel, Moses, Daniel, John, Thomas, Ebenezer; girls. Joana 
married Jespr Hunt of Milstone, Mary married Isaac Brooks of Sussex. 

" James and Joseph Doughty (brothers of Samuel) lived in Turkey. 

"Jonathan Doughty's children, William, Jonathan, father of Esq Jo, 
Daniel, Joseph, Mary, Jane, Elizabeth. 

"Isaac Doughty, brother of Samuel, lived at Piscataway, father of 

" John Doughty (father of Genl JohnJ, lived on Long Island. [This 
probably refers to General John Doughty, a wealthy and influential 
resident of Morristown, N. J., but if so it is an error. General John 
Doughty was a distinguished artillery officer in the Revolution, a man of 
great wealth and wide connection. He is buried at Morristown, N. J,, 
beside his sister, and their parents, Thomas Doughty and Gertrude 
LeRoux, his wife.] 

" Samuel, son of Samuel, lived between the mountains near Browstown. 
His children were John, Joseph, Benjamin, Abrm, Isaac, Rachel. 

"Moses, son of Samuel, lived Dead River. His children were Moses, 
Thomas, Solomon, Joshua, Mary, Bebecca, Elizabeth, Mercy. 

" Daniel, son of Samuel, lived near Easton and had children, Daniel,

"John, son of Samuel, lived Baskinridge. Killed by Indians on Dela- '

Tnis manuscript fortunately furnished the evidence that connected the 
Samuel Doty of Piscataway with the existing families in various parts of 
the State, but still gave no trace of his origin. This was found later at 
Plymouth, Mass., in the deed already recited, wht^rein he conveys the land 
that he received by the will of his father. Edward Doty, and the fact that 


in his emigration to New Jersey he was a(?companie(l by the families of 
Benajah and Benjamin Dunham and others with whom he had been inti- 
mate at Plymouth and at Eastham, Ma^s. 

The solution of this problem was very gratifying;:, for had not that valu- 
able manuscript been found it would have been difllcult on any plausible 
theory to convince the thousands of descendants of Samuel Doty now 
scattered through the Southern and Western States that they could ever 
have had their origin in the Edward Doty of the Mayflower. 

Matters rested thus until the Summer of 1896, when Rev. Irwin 1'. 
McCurdy of Harmony Grove, Md., becoming interested in this history, 
made some investigations and discovered in the library of the New 
•Jersej- Historical Society at Newark, N. J., a copy in manuscript of the 
'• Register of Births, Marriages and Deaths of Piscataway, from 1()7(5 to 
1790." Though not complete this register has furnished a partial list of 
names and dates, which corroborates the records otherwise gathered and 
has been of great service in elucidating many points. 

Samuel Doty may possibly have spent some of his early days on the 
sea as several of his brothers did, but it is probable that he generally 
found his occupation on the land, and that ho was on Cape Cod, as he 
certainly was in New Jersey, a farmor. There is nothing to indicate that 
he had other occupation. It will be noted that his marriage was late in 
life, he being, if the date of his birth be correctly given, thirty-five years 
of age, and yet there is no indication of earlier marriage, and certainly 
not of any other Issue. He lived to a greater age than his father or his 
elder brothers; it is probable that the warmer and more congenial climate 
of New Jersey conduced to this, for his posterity have been noted for 

It is evident from the record that he was intelligent, industrious and 
thrifty, a man of ability and authority, as iippears by his selection as 
Lieutenant of the military company soon after his airival at Piscataway, 
and }-et of blameless life, an affectionate husband and father, and a 
consistent member of the church. The sterling character of his children, 
and their unifoi-mly upright and C hristian lives, show good training on 
the part of their parents; and that patriotism was one of the virtues 
inculcated is evident by the services of his immediate descendants in the 
Indian Wars of ITHG and the Revolution. 

Samuel Doty and Jane Harmon were married November 15, 1078. The 
entry on the register of Piscataway is so indistinct that the name might 
be Ilinnon or Horman. but it is plainly given in the marriage license 
as Harmon.

The Town Register is incomplete; the names and dates as given above 
are not entered together, and it is possible and probable that the names 
of John and Nathaniel have never been written on the register, or if so 
written, have been by accident defaced. For, the existence of John and 
Nathaniel and their descendants is as well established by tradition as 
any of the others. Nathaniel was probably the youngest child, and born 
about 1707-8. John, however, was older and born probably as early as 
1680. he being a member of the church, 1707. 

3259. SAMUEL DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Jane Harman, b. Pis- 
cataway, N. J., Aug. 27, 1679; m. there Sept. 19, 1700, Elizabeth Hull, 
b. there Nov. 14, 1679, dau. Samuel Hull and Mary Manning. Samuel 
Hull was a son of Hopewell Hull, one of the early settlers of Piscat- 
away. ^Nlary Manning was dau. Joeffrey and Hepsaba Manning. 

He was the oldest sou of his parents, and his cattle mark was entered 
in the town records of Piscataway, N. J., April 26, 1701, his name being 
written Samuel Dottey, Jr. He was undoubtedly at this time given a 
farm at Piscataway by his father, and the tradition of the family is that 
he led a quiet, blameless life there, an intelligent, thrifty and conscien- 
tious neighbor and friend. He was a member of the Seventh Day Bap- 
tist Church of the town. In 1739 his name appears as witness to deeds 
to his son and nephews in Somerset County, N. J. 

His father conveyed in a deed dated Nov. 1, 1690, certain lands at 
Piscataway to Isaac Smalley. This deed had not been acknowledged 
before a magistrate, but the signature of the grantor was acknowledged 
in 1746 by his eldest son, Samuel Doty, who at that time was living in 
Morris County, N. J., "near the forks of the Delaware." It is not easy 
to locate this exact spot, but it was probably within the limits of the 
present Warren County, N. J., and not far from Phillipsburg, in that 
county. At this date, 1746, Morris County included within its limits 
not only its present domain, but the whole of the present Sussex and 
Warren Counties, Morris having been laid out from the old Hunterden 
County about 1738, and Sussex laid out from Morris County in 1753. 
AVarren County was not formed till 1824, having been taken from Sussex. 
On the old maps of Morris County, as it existed about 1746, the only 
towns or villages laid down in this vicinity are Phillipsburg, Oxford and 
Walpack, and it is probable from the very expression used in the ac- 
knowledgement quoted above, that Samuel Doty did not live in either 
town, but in the country near there. Nor is it probable that he lived 
there long. He was now sixty-seven years of age, while the old manuscript 
heretofore referred to, and from which is obtained much of the infor- 
mation that we possess of this family, speaks only of Piscataway as his 


His son Daniel may have located here about tliis time or soon after, 
as he is reported to have lived in New Jersey, near Easton. Pa \\'e 
infer, therefore, that most of Samuel Doty's active life was spent at Pis- 
eataway, but that sometime about 1740 5 he, with his children, removed 
from there, some of them settling in Somerset County, and others in 
Morris or Sussex County, and that Samuel Doty died not long after this, 
ju-obably about 1750.

3260. JOHN DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Jano Ilanuau, b. Piscata- 
way, N. J., prob. about 1G80 to 1685. 

The records of the Seventh Day Baptist Church at Piscataway, N. J., 
made apparently 1707, show that John Doty was a member. His cattle 
mark is entered on the records of the town under date December 24, 1712. 
but the records also show that " November 23, 1719, Dolph Ilardenbrook 
takes the mark that was formerlj' John Doty's," and from this it would 
seem probable that John Doty had removed from Piscataway before 1719. 

His further history is not clear and rests largely upon traditions in 
various branches of the familj'. The manuscript left by Miss Susan 
Doughty, and frequently referred to before, says: " John Doughlj' (father 
of General John) lived on Long Lsland," and though not so distinctly say- 
ing, the connection in which the statement is made would seem to imply 
that she referred to this John Doty. The records of Hempstead, Queens 
County, N. Y., on Long Island, are in excellent condition and well pre- 
served. Under date ]\Iay 11, 1724, is found: " John Doty's ear mark is a 
slit in the end of the near ear, and a half penny under the off ear." The 
town of Hempstead included at this time the residence of his uncle, Isaac 
Doty, and his sons, and as no John Doty appears to have then existed in 
that family it is quite possible and even probable that John Doty removed 
about 1718 from New Jersey to the town of Hempstead, L. 1., and settled 
in the immediate vicinity of his uncle and cousins. At this time, it must 
be borne in mind, Long Island was one of the most populous and prosper- 
ous portions of New York State. It is doubtful, however, whether he 


lived there for any length of time. In 1747, John Doty was made a free- 
man of New York City, at which time he was probably a successful and 
wealthy merchant there, and it is quite possible that this item refers to 
this John Doty, who had probably removed from Long Island to New York 
City and engaged in trade there. It is probable that later he removed 
again to New Jersey. His descendants have been found most numerous 
at the South, and from there comes a manuscript written many years 
since by his great grandson, Azariah Doty of Garrard County, Ky., which 
while containing some inaccuracies still furnishes a clue to his hi.story. 
This manuscript, which was in two parts, reads as follows: 

1. " For the amusement of subsequent generations the following is the 
substance of a memorandum given my father by his grandfather John 
Doughty the elder, when leaving Jersey for Virginia between the years 
1766 and 1770, viz., that John Doty left one sister (unmarried) in England 
and was a passenger from the county of Cornwall (near Lizzard Point) 
England in the ship Calledonia a slow, clumsy sailer, and from the 
leaky condition and heavy freight aboard the vessel was never landed ; 
the passengers and crew saved somewhere about N. Y. harbor. This was 
when Barkley or Barcley was governor of Jersey. (Barkley was governor 
of New Jersey from about 1683 to 1702 only.) He married a French woman 
by the name of Duane perhaps in N. Y. and had a second wife by the 
name of Pyatte; two children by each marriage, but was living and did 
afterwards live in Somerset County Jersey. ]My grandfather, one of his 
sons was named Isaac Doty, also married a French woman Reyno and 
was living at the time my father John Doty and my uncle Azariah Doty 
left Jersey near Princeton College. He also had a second wife, and chil- 
dren by both. Second wife's name was Roy. My father had Azariah, 
Peter, Isaac, Ephraim and Francis full brothers, Ann, Keziah and Esther 
full sisters. From some cause not explained the spelling of the name has 
been changed from Doughty to Doty. John Doty or Doughty the elder, 
died in the 115th year of his age, had lost his sight years before his death. 
Grandfather Isaac Doty died in 107th year, also nearly blind. Keziah, 
my aunt Roleson lost her sight years before her death. 

2. "Esther (my aunt) eldest, then John born Jan. 10, 1740, then Azariah, 

Ann (had 3 Husbands — Hay, Osborn, & Clark) (Keziah) Peter Isaac 

21 Jan. 1817 

Francis. Grandfather Reyno married a Williams on Staten Island and 
lived to 108 years of age. Grandfather Doty (Isaac) lived 107 years— had 
two wives, the above names are his first children. His last wife's name 
was Roy. Esther married Ayeis, Keziah married Wm Rowleson, Isaac 
married a Baxter, John married a Lamson, Francis married McKenney. 
Azariah married a Tucker & lived 106 years & some months." 

What foundation there may be for the connection of John Doty with 
the story of the wreck near New York harbor of the Caledonia, which 
occurred in 1699, is uncertain ; it is probable that the journey by Samuel 
Doty, his father, from Cape Cod to New Jersey was made by sailing 


vessel, and that some accident to it maj- have been the source of this tia- 

Possibly John Dotj' himself may have been wrecked on the New Jersey 
or Long Island coast at some time, but it was probably not duriijg Gov- 
ernor Barkley's admiiiist ration, at which time he was not onlj- too young, 
but was almost certainly a resident of Piscataway. But this manuscript 
is sufficiently corroborated from other sources to show definitely; that 
John Doty was a resident about ITGfi of Somerset Couutv, X. J., then 
probably eighty-six years of age, and that he lived probably to a very old 
age there; that he married first, probably, at Pi.scataway, N. J., or New 
York City, a lady of French descent named Duane, and later in life, prob- 
ably in Somerset County, N. J., a second wife whose family name was 
Pyatte. The Duanes were a distinguished, wealthy and Influential family 
in New York City. It is very probable also that there wore two children 
by each marriage, but further than this there is no record to guide us It 
is probable that John Doty, by 17G6. was a prosperous farmer, settled in 
Somerset County, N. J., and that he died there sometime later.

The cattle mark of "Edward Dote" is entennl upon the Town 
Records of Piscataway, N. J., under date Dec. 24, 1712. 'i'he only other 
information that we have of him is derived from his will, which is filed in 
the office of the Secretary o' State at Trenton, N. J. It is dated Oct. 18. 
1717, and was proved Nov. 19, 1717, showing that his death occurred 
vei-y soon after it was signed. In it, "Edward Dotie of Piscataway, 


Middlesex County, N. J., Planter, " bequeaths, first, to his well beloved 
mother, - Jane Doty, the use of twelve acres of laud during her life; 
second, all his plantation to be equally divided between his " two sons 
John Doty and Jeremio Doty," or if they die without issue then to go to 
his wife Sarah and his daughter Sarah Doty; third, to his daughter 
Sarah Doty, 15£, to be paid to her when she comes of age; and fourth, 
to his wife Sarah Doly all of his personal property. The executors were 
his wife Sarah Doty and Thomas Davis of Somerset County, N. J. The 
will shows therefore that he married a wife Sarah and that they had

there, July 28, 1693, dau. Edward Slater and Elizabeth Bonham. 

In the town records of Piscataway, N. J., now at Dunellen, N. J., 
appears under the date of Jan. 2, 1709, the cattle mark of "James Dote," 
the entries of his brother's mark being at different dates in the same 

1710. " James Dote " was made Freeman. 

The manuscript left by Miss Susan Doughty, says that ' ' James, 
brother of Samuel, lived at Turkey," now New Providence, Union Co., 
N. J. This is probably an error. There is no trace whatever at New 
Providence of James Doty having ever lived there. 

Among the records in the office of the Secretary of State, at Trenton, 
N. J., is the will, dated and proved 1745, of Benjamin Hull of Piscat- 
away, N. J., in which he devises several small legacies to his brother and 
nephew, and then a life interest to his wife Elizabeth, after whose death 
his lands are to be divided between his cousins, Benjamin Doty, who lives 
with him, his brother, Benajah Doty, and Thomas and Mary Davis. 
His brother-in-law, Benjamin Martin of Piscataway, and the widow 
are appointed executors. Further investigation shows that Thomas and 
Mary Davis were the children of Thomas Davis who married Mary Drake. 
She was a daughter of John Drake and granddaughter of Francis Drake, 
the first settler. John Drake In his will, gave legacies to his daughters, 
Elizabeth Hull, wife of Benjamin Hull, and Filizatea Martin, wife of 
Benjamin Martin; but though all his children are probably mentioned in 
his will there are no Dotys. 

Among the earliest settlers at Piscataway who came there with Samuel 
Doty and Francis Drake were Hopewell Hull, the grandfather of 
Benjamin Hull, Hugh Dunn, who married in 1671 Elizabeth, daughter 
of Francis Drake, and Benjamin, Samuel and Edmund Dunham. The 
Dunhams were the children, or possibly the grandchildren of John 
Dunham of Plymouth, the neighbor there of Edward Doty. He had a large 
family and some of his children removed to Eastham on Cape Cod. Mass., 
and as recorded heretofore, the records of Eastham, Mass., show that 


lienajah Dunhaiu of that place bought, IGGS. all tho iiiteiest of Samuel 
Doty in the lands at Dartmouth as devised to him by the will of his 
father. Plymoutli, Mass.. records show also the marriage, in IGOO, of 
Benajah Dunham of Easthani to Elizabeth Tilson, and the same year of 
Benjamin Dimham of Eastham to Mary Tilson. 

The names Benjamin, Benajah and Mieajah were common names 
among the Dunhams at Plymouth and Eastham, and it is not easy 
to distinguish which generation carried these names in the emigration t(.) 
New Jersey. It is pobable from the will of Benjamin Hull. 1745, which 
shows that Benjamin Doty was living with him, that Benjamin and 
Benajah Doty were orphans, or at least that their father was not living.

;J2<)5. JONATHAN DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Jane Harman, b. 
Piscataway, N. J., Feb. 24, 1G87-8 ; m. there about 1717, a wife, Mary. 

His cattle mark is entered upon the town records of Piscataway as 
follows: " March 25, 1717. The marks of Samuel Doty are now the 
marks of his ondley son Jonathan Doty," the mark being the same that 
was entered, 1680, or earlier as the mark of Samuel Dotie. It is not clear 
what is meant by the expression, "his ondley son," for he was certainly 
not the only son of his father, nor was he the only son remaining at 
Piscataway at this time. 

The family name of his wife nowhere appears, and there is no tradition 
in the family that throws any light upon it. He was probably the first of 
his family to emigrate to the beautiful and fertile valley of Basking 
Ridge, Somerset County, N. J., whither he was accompanied by his 
children, and followed by so many of his nephews, that the village and 
town seem almost to have been a Doty settlement. Among the papers of 
Lord Stirling, iieretoforo referred to, among the earliest leases recorded 
is one dated August 16, 1739, to Jonathan Doty of Somerset Countj", 150 
acres at Basking Ridge, on the east side of Dead River. In the body of 
this lease the name is written Doughty, but it is signed "Jonathan Dotj'." 
The lease provides that he is to plant an orchard of 150 apple trees and 
put up a building. It is probable, however, that he was a resident of the 
to^vn earlier. 

There is nothing further on record to indicate the character of his life 
or tho date of his deatli. His children later were all in i)Ossession of 
comfortable farms and homes at Basking Ridge, and the intelligent char- 
acter of his descendants there leads to the belief that he was a successful 
and thrifty farmer, who gave his children the benelit of a fair education 
and good training and left them in comfortable circumstances at his death. 
The names of his children are given in the order in which they appeared 


on the record manuscript of ]\Iiss Susan Doughty, heretofore quoted, ex- 
cept that the name of Joshua is inserted upon the authority of several 
aged members of the family.

A very fair, though not entirely complete nor strictly accurate list of 
his family and decendants will be found in Littell's " Genealogies of the 
Passaic Valley, N. J." Littell incorrectly states, however, that Joseph 
Doty came from the east end of Long Island to the Passaic Valley. Many 
other families did so emigrate about that time, but Joseph Doty came 
direct from Piscataway soon after the death of his father, probably about 
1717, and settled on part of Lot 39 of the Elizabethtown lots in the Stony 
Hill Valley, in the immediate vicinity of the present village of New 
Providence, N. J. 


The record of ]\li8s Susan Doughtj-, frequently referred to heretofore 
and whifh has served so largely to identify and to locate the various 
branches of the familj- in Now Jersey, stated t'lat .Joseph Doty "lived in 
Turkey." It was assumed that Turkey in Nt'w .Jersey was meant, but an 
active search through the various localities known to the present genera- 
tion as "Turkey," failed to give any clew to this family until it was dis- 
covered that the present village and town of New Providence, Union 
County, N. J., formerly Ijore the name of "Turkej'." Tradition ascribes 
the change of name to the providential preservation of the people from 
injury at tlie falling of the galleries in the church on a Sunday, but be- 
tween services. .Josepli Doty was a prominent memljer of this church, 
the Presbyterian Church, wljich stands In the centre of the village at the 
Cross Roads, and which some of his descendants still attend. The records 
of the church are well kept and his name f requeutlj- appears as an odlcer 
or trust<ie. 

He married, probably about 1721 2, Sarah Badgly who, it is stated by 
Littell, came with her brotheis John and James Badgly from the east end 
of Long Island and settled in the Stony Hill Valley, between the lirst and 
second mountains. Soon after marriage Jo.seph Dotj' 1:)uilt a house for his 
residence on Stoney Hill about one mile from the village of New Provi- 
dence. The old homestead is still standing in a fair state of preservation, 
and was occupied a few years since by his great granddaughter, Mrs. Alary 
Doty Pitts. His farm extended down Into the more fertile valley, and 
here he lived until his death. 

The record kept by Rev. Mr. Elmer, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, 
says "old Mr. Doty died September 10, 1768." His will is on record at 
Trenton, N. .7. It is dated September 'S, 17fi8, at Elizabeth, Ussex Countj', 
N. J., and gives "to my dearly Jjelovod wife Sarah," the homestead in 
which they lived and the personaljproperty belonging thereto, and mentions 
his " eldest son George Doty," liis sons Anthony and John, his "eldest 
daughter P^lizabeth, wife of Jeremiah Ludlow, deceased," and his 
•' youngest daughter Sarah, wife of William Carl," to all of whom legacies 
were left. The will was proved October 14, 17G8. The witnesses were 
Uriah and Phebe Hedgers, who were undoubtedlj' Uriah Hedges, Jr., and 
wife, whose maiden name was I'hel)e Dayton. He was a son of Uriah 
Hedges, who married Betsey Badgly, sister of Sarah, and who owned part 
of Lot ;^9 of the Elizabethtown lots, next to Joseph Doty. 

Mrs. Sarah Doty died probablj' a little before August 20, 1785, at wliieh

Nathaniel Doty's name is not entered on tlie register of births, etc., at 
Piscataway, but the tradition and record so frequentlj' referred to of Miss 
Susan Doty, mentions Nathaniel as brother of Samuel, Jr., and others and 
gives the names of several of his children. Nathaniel Doty probably re- 
moved early to Mendham, Morris Co., N. J., where his children were 
living at the close of the Revolution.

According to tradition he lived '• between the mountains, near Brows- 
town, N. J." Browstown was a small village about a mile or so 
north of Plainfield, LTnion Co., N. J. Its bounds may have extended up 
to the valley called Washington Valley. Very little further is known of 
him. He was a farmer, and died in 1777. He left no will; but letters of 
administration were granted to his son, Benjamin, January 22, 1778. The 
manuscript of Miss Susan Doughty before mentioned gives his

was granted letters of admini-stration Jan. 22, 1778, and filed his 
account, which was approved Jan. 22, 1779. He d. May, 1780. His 
will is on record at Trenten, N. J. It was executed May 4, 
1780, and proved at Bernardstown, Somerset Co., N. J., May 30, 
1780, and bequeaths one-half of his estate to the children of his sister, 
Rachel Sutton, and the remainder to the children of his brother, 
Isaac Doty, deceased; the property to be sold when Henry Doty, 
eon of his brother. Isaac, shall become twenty-one years of age.

cataway, N. J., Aug. 31, 1702. He is described as a yeoman, and lived 
Dead River, Bernardstown, Somerset Co., N. J. 

Among the papers of James Alexander (Lord Stirling) now in possess- 
ion of the New Jersey Historical Society at Newark, N. J., is a lease, 
dated May 5, 1747, from James Alexander to Moses Doty of Basking 
Ridge, of 371 acres formerly in Nathaniel Rolfe's lease and lying on Dead 
River and Pasauk River, Somerset, Co., N. J. Also, June 4, 1751, a deed 
from James Alexander to Moses Doty of Basking Ridge, for a consideration 
of 2044", Jersey currency, of 204 acres on Dead and Pasauk Rivers. A deed 


is on record, ITiiti, from Moaes Doty to Rev. Samuel Kennodj-, of land at 
Basking Ridge, and in ITGli a mortgage of some of his lands there, which 
is witnessed by his cousins, .Jonathan and William Uoty. 

Moses Doty's will is on record in the ollice of the Secretary of State at 
Trenton, N. J. It is dated March 27, 1775, and proved the 19th of April 
following, showing his death between those dates. In it he bequeaths his 
property in shares as follows: 1st. To my grandson, Moses Doty, son of 
my son, Moses Doty, deceased, 50f, when he comes of age. 2d. To my 
two granddaughters, sisters of my aforesaid grandson. ^lary and ."^arah, 
25£ each. 3d. To Elizabeth Doty, the daughter of Elizabeth Doty, 
deceased, who lives with John Bloom, under his care, 50X", when she is 
eighteen years of age. 4th. To mj' daughter ^lary, wife of Reuben 
Conipton, 504". 5th. To my daughter, the wife of Garret Rosaboom, 70i" 
6th. All the rest of my estate to my two sons, Solomon and Jousua Doty, 
who, with my trusty brother-in-law, John Bloom, are to be the executors of 
my estate. 

The information given here is too meagre to determine as to the name of 
his wife, who would appear to have died before him, or as to the precise 
manner in which John Bloom became his brother-in-law. But we may 
infer that the maiden name of his wife was probably Bloom. According 
to the manuscript left by his granddaughter Miss Susan Doughty, they

327o. DANIEL DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Elizabeth Hull, b. Pis- 
cataway, N. J., April 5, 1707. 

Daniel Doughty mortgaged, in 17G9, hi.s laud in Sussex County, N. J., 
lying on Paques.s Rivci-. This was probably near the present town of Bel- 
videre. in Warren County, N. J., wliich county was formed by being taken 
from Sussex County in 1824. And it is possible that it was here, or near 
here, that his father, Samuel Doty, lived in 1746, at the time when, in 
making an affidavit, he gives his residence as in Morris County, "near 
the forks of the Delaware." 

The manuscript of Susan Doughtj'. to which reference has hen-to- 
fore been made, says that Daniel Doughty lived "near Easton," n>ferriiig 
to Easton, Pa., but at the time it was written this would ajiply to the 
locality above described. 

The records of Northampton County, Pa., in which Easton is situated, 
though dating back to 1 7;')2, do not mention the names of Doty or Doughty, 
nor is there any further trace of this family in the various county records 
in New Jersey. It is probable that he wrote his name " Doughty." and 












r^' ' 









that his descendants may have kept the same spelling. According to the 
account given he had

3276. JOHN DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Elizabeth Hull, b. Piseata- 
way, N. J., June 4, 170ti. He lived Basking Ridge, N. J. 

Among the papers of James Alexander (Lord Stirling) in the possession 
of the New Jersey Historical Society at Newark, N. J., appears a lease 
dated March 24, 1739, from James Alexander to John Doty of Basking 
Ridge, N. J., of 300 acres there. The lease is witnessed by Samuel Doty 
and Jonathan Doty, probably his father and uncle. July 24, 1746, notice 
was served on John Doty to renew the above lease, and the renewal was 
dated February 28, 1747. In all these papers and elsewhere where his 
his name is signed as witness, it is given as John Doty. 

Tra iition from various sources among his descendants gives the maiden 
name of his wife as Skillman, and as one. of his sons received that name, 
the tradition is probably correct, although her Christian name has not 
been discovered. The Skillmans were of Dutch descent, and the name 
" Ocy" has been such a favorite name for the female descendants of this 
family that it seems probable that the name of John Doty's wife was Ocy 

John Doty was an active man in his vicinity, intelligent and enterpris- 
ing. His children partook largely of these characteristics, and were well 
educated for the time. Unfortunately he was cut off in the prime of life, 
being killed by the Indians at or near the Delaware River in one of the 
contests of the Indian war of 1757. His large family, thus left to the care 
of the widow, were well brought up at Basking Ridge, and their activity 
and usefulness to society bears evidence of the worthy training they re- 
ceived. His widow died probably at Basking Ridge, though the date 
does not appear.

undoubtedly of French origin arid is written also Reynaud and Reynauld.

The records of Somerset County were burned duriijg the Revolutionary 
War, and the existing records afford but littie information of dates 
previous to that time. 176(). August 15, Jeremiah Dote, cordwainer, 
mortgages his land in Somerset County, N. J. 1788. June 3, Jeremiah 
Doty and Hampye his wife of Somerset County, acknowledge a deed 
relating to property bequeathed to her by her father Tennis Covert of 
Somerset County, in his will dated January 9, 1732. 

They probably lived in that part of Somerset County which adjoins 
the town of Piscataway, or possibly in the village of Soraerville, and he 
followed the business of cordwainer or shoemaker. He was probably 
a Revolutionary soldier, private in Somerville Militia. Several of his 
children removed to Central New York.

Piscataway, N. J., May 17, 1721. He prob. lost his parents before he 
became of age and then lived with his cousin, Benjamin Hull, as shown by 
the will of the latter, 1745. 

His cattle mark is entered in the records of the town of Piscataway, 
February 3, 1749. .July 11, 1759, Benjamin Doty and his brother Benajali 
sold the lands bequeathed to them bj- their cousin, Benjamin Hull, to 
Thomas Skinner, Jr., and they removed to North Carolina where they 
settled in Onslow County and afterwards lived. North Carolina history 
shows that both brothers took .a leading and prominent part in public 
affairs. They represented the county in the legislative meetings of the 
State Assembly in 1775-6. which took active measures to support the 
Continental Congress. He was elected, April 4, 177(i, delegate from 
Onslow County to the General Electing of Deputies. As the State was 


the seat of constant warfare and skirmishing between the opposing 
elements of its population they jiroViably took an active part in this also. 
Little further is known of Benjamin Doty. lie is reported to have had 
two sons, as below, but no trace of them or their descendants has been 
found, and it is uncertain whether Benjamin Doty died in Onslow County, 
North Carolina, or removed elsewhere. 
Children, by report:

3399. ii. Christopher. 

3302. BENAJAH DOTY, son James Doty and Phebe Slater, b. Piscata- 
way, N. J., about 1723. 

His cattle mark is entered on the town records of Piscataway, Januarj- 
21, 17.51, and the same year he was elected constable of the town, suc- 
ceeding in that position Isaac Doty who was probably his uncle, and who 
had held it since 1744. He received by the will of his cousin, Benjamin 
Martin, certain pieces of land at Piscataway. which he sold to Thomas 
Skinner, Jr., July 1), 1759, and undoubtedly emigrated at that time with 
his brother Benjamin to Onslow County, N. C. 

Here, like his brother, he took an active part in public affairs, was a 
Representative to the State Assemblies of 1875-6, participated in the 
debates and counselled, with others, the action which led the State to be 
one of the earliest in demanding a separation from the British Govern- 
ment, and to be most earnest and prompt in supporting the measures of 
the Continental Congress. He was one of the delegates to the Conven- 
tion, 177^1, which framed the Constitution of the Colony, and held various 
local positions of trust and honor. He was member of the House of Com- 
mons of North Carolina, 1777-8. 

He was married twice. First, perhaps in New Jersey, but the name 
of his wife has not been discovered, nor is it known by his de- 
scendants. He married second, Onslow County, N. C, about 1774, Eliza- 
beth Chatwin (or possibly Chatran), born probably North or South Caro- 
lina, 1737. She lived to the age of 101 years, and her grandson. Rev. 
William Edward Doty of Greenwood, La., who has furnished many of the 
facts in the early history of this branch, remembered hearing her tell how, 
during the Revolutionary War, she lived in North Carolina, and having 
buried her effects and property in the ground, she helped to make potato 
hills over them to conceal them from the Tories. 

Benajah Doty died in Onslow County, N. C, 1780. His widow mar- 
ried second, a man named Willie, or Wylie, and by him had a daughter, 
Sarah Ann, who married Hugh Kader llarrel, and their daughter Eliza- 
beth married John Chatwin Doty (No. 3607). She married third, 

Cottrell, and fourth, John Turner, but survived all, and died at the resi- 
dence of her son James Doty, at Hernando, De Soto Countj-, Miss., on 
her birthday, 1838, at the age of 101 years. 

Children by his 1st wife:

moved to Georgia.

ii'MKi. WILLIAM DOTV, son Jonathan Doty and his wife, Mary, 1). 
Pisoataway, N. J., Sept. 11, 1719. IIo was probalily the oldest son of 
his fathor and removed with him to Basking Ridge, N. J. Here he be- 
came a blacksmith. 

April 4, 1748, Lord Stirling leased to William Doly of IJasking Ridge, 
sixty-five acres there, and July 2. 1753, for a consideration of 80£, Jersey 
currency, he conveyed to the same William Doty a farm of eighty acres 
there. William Doty's name appears later, 17GG, as witness to a mortgage 
given by his cousin, Moses Doty, at Basking Ridge. Unfortunately, the 
county records having been burned during the Revolutionary War, there 
is nothing further j)ositively known of this family. The above facts are 
gathered from the Lord Sterling papers in possession of the New Jersey 
Historical Society at Newark, X. .1. 

He was a Revolutionary soldier, a minute man in Somerset County, X. 
J., nnlitia. It is probable that William Doty was a farmer and black- 
smith in good circumstances, and that he had a family. All I race' of him 
and ihem has been lost from the present generation at Basking Ridge, 
and it is probable that during the Revolution and the emigration that fol- 
lowed it, the family disappeared from that vicinity. 

3404. Possibly descended from William Doty is Jesse, b. Basking 
Ridge, X. J., Sept. 17, 17()0. 

:{:{(>4. JOXATHAN DOTV, .son Jonathan Doty and his wife, Mary, 
b. Piscataway, N. J., prob. about 1724. He removed with his father 
to Basking Ridge, X. J., and m. there Patience Sutton. 

He was a farmer and undoubtedly lived and died at Basking Ridge, 
though, other than the appearance of his name as a witness to papers 
dated 17r)(), there is nothing on the few exi.sting lecordsof the town refcr- 
ing to him. The uniformly intelligent and enterprising character of his 
children shows that they received unu.'^ual advantages in their youth, or 
inherited special traits of character from their parents. Either he or his 
son Jonathan was a teamster in Captain Asabel Iliiimaii's Team Brigade 
of X'^ew .lersey in the Revolutionary War.

b. prob. Basking Ridge, about 1730: m. and lived lh<n-e: i)rob. d. at a 
comparatively early age. 

His name was not mentioned on the manuscript record of .Miss Su.san 
Douglity in her list of the children of Jonathan Doty; nor is there any 













record or tradition among the descendants of Joshua that affords any 
information as to his ancestors. Certain aged residents of Basking Ridge, 
N. J., descended from his brothers Jonathan and Joseph, have however 
given positive assurance that they were so related. Mrs. Susan Doty 
Craig, daughter of Daniel Doty and granddaughter of Joseph, who had 
always lived at Basking Ridge, was very positive in this assertion; she re- 
collected very well Moses Doty, son of Joshua, who lived at Dover, N. J.; 
knew that he was own cousin to her father and stopped at her father's 
house whenever he visited the vicinity, because they were cousins. This 
being corroborated by other old residents of Basking Ridge, it is deemed 
stronger evidence than the absence of name in the manuscript quoted 
above, which is perhaps accounted for by the fact that Joshua Doty died 
probably before the Revolution, and his son, having removed to Dover, the 
family had passed out of the memory of others. 

There is no record of his wife. His descendants say that he had but 
one child to grow up, though passibly there may have been others who 
died early.

A deed on record at Goshen, the county seat of Orange County, N. Y., 
but filed there probably about 1820, is as follows: "1725, October 8> 
Jonathan Whitehead of Jamaica, Queens County, N. Y., in consideration

volunteered, and, with his brother Jacob, became a member of the com- 
pany of minute men that was raised in Morris County for the New Jersey 

Deeds are on record as late as 1796 from Nathaniel Doty to his son 
Henry. It is probable that he d. Mendham, shortly after 1796. 


3440. i. Henry, b. Mendham, 1754. 

3331. ISAAC DOTY, son Samuel Doty and Abigail Springer, b. Somer-

Hill, Elizabethboro, N. J., which is probably still called Stony Hill, and 
in the present town of New Providence, N. J. 

At the first call of the Revolutionary War he enlisted in the Continental 
army, and was wounded at the battle on Long Island, August 27 and 28, 
1776. His will was signed there, and as it was proved at Bernardstown, 
Somerset County, N. J. , October 30th following, it is almost certain that 
he died from the effects of the wound, and probably within a day or two 
of the date of the will which reads as follows: "First year of the 
American States — 1776, this 28th day of August, I, Isaac Doty of Eliza- 
bethboro, Somerset County, N. J., lying wounded at Long Island," etc. 
He divides his lands, which lie on Stony Hill, between his wife, Mary, his 
two sons, Samuel and Henry, and his two daughters, Kachael and Sarah. 


From the records of Cayuga County, N. Y., at Auburn, N. Y.. 1796, 
April 16, Henry Doty and Mary, his wife, and David Stewart and Racliel. 
his wife, all of Somerset County. N. J., soil lands in the town of Dryden. 
Onondaga County, X. Y. (now in Toni]ikins County, N. Y.'), "issued to 
Isaac Doty, a gunner in the American army during the Revolution, and by 
him at his death l)equeatlied in his will one-half to his .son Henry Doty 
and one-half to his son Samuel Doty, which said Samuel Doty is since 
dead, leaving no children or lawful heirs, except his brother Henry Doty, 
Kachael Doty, now Rachel Stewart, his sisfer, and Sarah Stewart, sister 
to said Samuel Doty." 

As shown by the above documents, Isaac Doty and Mary, liis wife, had 
children born at Stony Hill, Somerset Co. . N. J.

yeoman, and lived Somerset Co., N. J., and d. there, 1759. His widow 
was appointed administratrix of his estate Oct. 9, 1759. All that 
is known of his family is from the reference to them in the will of liis 
father, who, dying in 1775, names the children of his son Moses, deceased.

His will is on record in the office of the Secretary of State, at Trenion, 
N.J. It is dated July 34, 1784, signed "Solomon Doty" and probated 
October 13, 1784. He names as his executors his wife, Hannah Dot}', his 
brother, Joshua Doty, and his friend, Amos Pettet. His estate is divided 
between his wife and children as named below, and as the will specifies 
that Solomon's share is to be retained by the executors until he l)ecomes 
twenty-one years of age, it is probable that he was the j'oungest child, and 
the only son then under age.

May 25, 1808. 

A record of his family is given in Littell's " Genealogies of the Passaic 
Valley." Solomon Boyle was an Irishman, who landed in New York City, 
probably about 1730. Here he married a French lady who had but lately 
left Paris during some revolutionary trouble, and purchased a tract of 
land on the Passaic River about two and a half miles from Basking Ridge, 
N. J. He cultivated this farm and also established a grist and saw mill 
at the west end of Long Hill, in Somerset County. Upon the marriage of 
his daughter to Joshua Doty the latter removed to this mill and after- 
ward resided there, it being known as " Doty's Mills." At his death it 
was inherited by his son, Solomon.

wtiich, in the possession of her nephew, the late Joshua Doughty, 
Esq., of Somerville, N. J., has been heretofore referred to, and 
was found very useful in the preparation of this history. She and 
her brother adopted the name " Doughty " by which his descend- 
ants have since been known.

of Dutch descent, and who was i)rob. connected with one of the Dutch H <-; I 

families in the vicinity of his birth-place. They removed prob. shortly

It is probable that Cornelius Doty took part in the Indian War of ITTiT. 
and participated in the fighting at the Delaware River in that year, at 
which time his father was killed. His early experience made his services 
valuable and led him to volunteer at the very opening of the Revolution. 

In the New York State Library at Albany, in the volume entitled, 
" Albany County Committee Procoedings." page 400. is noted, under date 
of April 11. 1776, "Cornelius Doty is recommended to the Provincial 
Congress, by the Albany Committee, for Second Major of the Cambridge 
RegimtMit," and again, "Juno 13, 1776. Cornelius Doty was elected a 
member of the Cambridge Committee of Safety," together with five other.s, 
all men of the highest distinction and wealth there. There is a tradition 
in the family that he served through the Revolution and with the rank of 
Colonel, and some further corroborative proof has been found in the 
records of the Comptroller's office of the State of New York. 

At the close of the war or soon after, he removed to Half Moon, Sara- 
toga County, X. Y., and several purchases of lands there by him are 
recorded in 1790 1796. 

There is a complete absence of records in this family, and there is 
nothing to indicate where this brave and able soldier and citizen died. 
There is a tradition that he removed with his sons to the town of Western, 
Oneida County, N. Y., and died there, but there are no records in that 
town to show that he ever lived there or made purchase of any land there. 
His widow is reported to have died at Western, X. Y.. about 1826. Care- 
ful investigation of the records of Washington, Albany and Oneida 
counties in N. Y., as well as personal visits to the localities mentioned 
and intei views with such of his descendants as could be found, have failed 
to furnish anything further of the history of this interesting member of 
the family. It is a matter of regret that no reeoril has been kept in the 
family, nor are there any papers of any description to aid in the search, 
while among his descendants his veiy name has been forgotten.

Feb. 22, 1847. He d. Doty's Corners, Steuben Co., N. Y., Oct. 1, 1889. 

His first marriage was probably before the commencement of the Revo- 
lutionary War, and he removed from New Jersey to the west bank of the 
Susquehanna River, in Pennsylvania. The name of the first wife was not 
even known by his children, Peter Doty and Mrs. Catherine Webb, 
from whom most of the information concerning this family has been re- 
ceived. It is thought he lived in Pennsylvania two years before the 
breaking out of hostilities. When the news came that the Indians were 
on the warpath, he and most of his neighbors packed up their goods and 
started back to New Jersey; the roads were full of fugitives, their goods 
being carried on the backs of cows and in every conceivable shape. At 
what time his first wife died is not known ; it may have been in Pennsyl- 
vania, or shortly after the return to New Jersey. He, however, became 
a soldier of the Revolutionary army and did faithful service throughout 
the war. He was a private, minute man, Somerset County, New Jersey 

His second marriage occurred shortly after the close of the war, and 
he then removed with his family first to Cowanesque Valley, Tioga 
County, Pa., from there to Elmira, N. Y., then to Dansville, N. Y., from 
there to what was known then as "No. 5," now Canaseraga, Allegany 
County, N. Y., and finally to Doty's Corners, Steuben County, N. Y., 
where he died, aged 87 years, in 1839.

He entered the Revolutionary array at a very early age as a drummer- 
boy, but later joined the artillerj- branch of the service. In 1781 he is said 
to have commanded an artillery company on Staten Island, which he took 
across upon the ice to Amboy on the opposite New Jersey shore. In the 
records of Cayuga Co., N. Y., at Auburn, appears a certificate dated June 
9, 178;3. from General Washington, certifying that Isaac Doty, a gunn<'r in 
the Second or New York Artillery Regiment, having faithfully served the 
United States from the 20th of February, 1779, until the present period, is 
discharged. Also, a certificate from Colonel John Lamb of the New York 
Artillery Regiment, that Isaac Doty has been honored with the badge of 
merit for four years faithful service. 

For this service Isaac Doty received from the State of New York cer- 
tain lands in Cayuga County, N. Y. , which he sold March 2, 1793, to David 
Abeel, mariner, of New York City. Captain John Doughty, who was Cap- 
tain of an artillery company in same regiment, and also received lands in 
Cayuga County. N. Y., may have been related to Isaac Doty. 

In the records of the State of New Jersoy he is credited with services 
as follows: Private in Second Company, Second Battalion, Second Estab- 
lishment, New Jersey Continental line; served in the campaign in western 
Pennsylvania against the Six Nations, May to November, 1779, was trans- 
ferred to First Company, Captain Nathaniel Bowman, Second Regiment: 
served in the Virginia campaign, took part in the battle of Y'orktown,and 
was present at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis, October 19, 1781, and 
served to the close of the war. 

After the close of the war Isaac Doty returned to New Y'ork City and 
engaged in foreign trade that took him out of the country more or less, 
but about 1800 he removed to White Plains, N. Y. , where he afterward 
lived. He was quite prominent in the county in public affairs, and in '1823 
was appointed Under Sheriff of Westchester County.

of Roxbury Township, convey certain lands there. Here their children 
were probably born and the family remained till about 1790, when the

there, and a Methodist class leader. " He was without an enemy," his 
son writes, and he " never heard of an objectionaable act in his life: a 
better man never lived."

Jonathan Dotj- removed from Hasking Ridge, to Westmorelainl County, 
Pa., soon after the close of the Revolutionary War, probably in 1784. He 
settled in the town of Derry, in that county, and here his children were 
born. Later he removed to Blairsville, where he subsequently lived. At 
Derry. besides cultivating a considerable farm, he probably kept a tavern, 
and being of an industrious and thrify disposition he gathered a consider- 
able property, educated his children well and lived in comfort. In later 
years he became an exhorter of the Metho( Episcopal Church. He 
was greatly respected for the probity of his life and many good qualities.

He was a Revolutionary soldier, private, minute man of the Somerset 
County, New Jersey, Militia, New Jersey State Troops. After marriage he 
removed to Troy, N. J., and later lived at BaskingHidge, but about 1784-5 
removed to Westmoreland County, Pa., and settled at Derry, near Blairs- 
ville, where several of his brothers soon followed him. This country at 
that time was almost a wilderness, there being but few settlers. He is 
said to have kept tavern for a while, but was certainly a farmer also. He 
made frequent visits to Basking Ridge, where his three oldest children 
were brought up and remained. In a " Census of families at Basking 
Ridge, 1818," made by Rev. Mr. Brownlee, there appears in the list of 
families the name of " Mrs. Colyer and four children," with a note added 
later, "married to Z. Doty in Westmoreland, Pa." It is probable from 
this that this marriage was consummated after 1818.

He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The Adjutant General of 
New Jersey certified August 4, 1896: "The records show Nathaniel Doty 
as a private, minute man, of the Morris County, New Jersey, Militia." The 
Commissioner of Pensions certified August 7, 1896: "Nathaniel Doty 
made application for pension November 22, 1842, at which time he was 
residing in Derry Township, Westmoreland Co.. Pa., and eighty-four years 
of age, and his pension was allowed for eight months actual service as a 
private in the New Jersey troops. Revolutionary War; a part of the time 
he served under Captain Carter and Colonel Hathaway. He enlisted at 
Morristown, N. J." His father, his brother, Zebulon, and his father-in- 
law, Lieutenant George Bockoven, were also in the Revolution. He re- 
moved with his wife and two children and his brothers to Derry Town- 
ship, Westmoreland County, about 1795, and purchased a farm there near 
"Alter's," which is now owned by his great-grandson, John D. McCurdy. 
His three brothers, Jonathan, Zebulon and William, and his sister, Re- 
becca (^the whole family except Joseph), removed to Derry Township. 
He and his wife visited their early home in New Jersey thre*^ times. For 
the last few years of their lives they lived with their daughter, Mary Doty 


McCunly, in Deny Township, near Latrobe, Pa. Ho was a man of good 
character and was highly respected by the community in which he lived. 
He was identified with Salem Presbyterian Church, in which his brother 
Jonathan wag an elder, and in the graveyard of which he and his wife 
are buried.

Joseph Doty was the only one of his father's children wiio remained in 
Somer.«et County, N. J., and probably succeeded to the lands of his 
brothers and his parents there. He was a man of good education and 
address, very popular with all, of large acquaintance, and became 
prominent in the government of the county. For many years he held 
successively the offices of Sheriff, County Clerk and Surrogate, serving 
several terms of each. He amassed a considerable property, which he 
divided between his widow and children by his will, which is on record 
at Somerville, N. J. He provides especially in the will for the 'education 
of his sons, "Jonathan to be kept at Languages and to complete his 
education at College and to .study Divinity, Joseph to lie kept at school 
to complete a good English education and then to become a Merchant." 
The will of his widow is also on file at Somerville, 1859.

They removed soon after their marriage to Dover, N. J., where he 
engaged in the iron business. He built the first forge in Dover, and ran 
it for many years, finally selling it to the Rolling Mill Company. About 
1800 he retired from the business, having saved enough by prudent man- 
agement to enable him to live in comfort thereafter. He was a man of 
sound judgment; prudent and saving, plain and simple in his ways, of 
sterling integrity, temperate in all things. Both he and his wife were 
earnest and pious members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, she 
having been the first convert to its communion in the town. Their house 
became a meeting place for the faithful and a home for the preachers. 
Moses Doty was himself an exhorter, while his wife would go from house 
to house carrying aid to the sick and the poor, and urging her neighbors 
to join the church.

8087. i. Miranda. 

In some way descended from Jonathan Doty (No. 32(5.')) of Basking 
Ridge, N. J., there was living there, in 1818, as is found upon a list of 
families residing there made by Rev. Mr. Brownlee, Mrs. Keziah Doty, 
and also her children. 


3688. i. PiiEBE. 

3689. ii. Hannah. 

3590. iii. Sylvestek, b. prob. about 1807, as may be inferred from 
the date of his marriage. 

As the children's names are given in above order it is probable that 
Phebe, the oldest, was born about 1800. Mrs. Keziah Doty was un- 
doubtedly, in 1818, a widow, but there are no other facts upon record or 
tradition to indicate the name of her husband. 

3421. BENJAMIN DOTY, prob. son Benjamin Doughty, by his 1st 
wife, b. prob. Middlesex Co., N. J., about 1735-40: m. prob. Wantage, N. 
J., a wife, Mary. 

Nothwithstanding that several of the descendants of Benjamin Doty 
have ascribed an eastern origin and residence to him, the evidence seems 
plain and conclusive that he was the son of Benjamin Doughty, and 
grandson of the Benjamin Doughty who married Abigail Whitehead, and 
who lived at Princeton, N. J. The gift of land by Jonathan Whitehead 
to his grandson, in the Minisiiik Angle, led the latter, after his marriage 
and before the Revolutionary War, to settle there, and the lecords show 
him to have been a resident there, 1705 to 1779. The Wallkill and 
Minisink regions are in the present Orange County, N. Y., and adjoin 
the town of Wantage in Sussex County, N. J., where his cousins, Micajah 
and John Doty, sons of Isaac, were living, about the same time. 

It seems plain then that Benjamin Doty, who was living in 1800 at 
Wantage, and whose name appears in deeds there at that time, had 
resided there or in the immediate vicinity for many years, having come 
there with his father, probably as early as 1700. This is further confirmed 
by the fact that his children appear in many deeds on the Orange County, 
K Y., records, as sellers of portions of the Minisink properties, and it is 
apparently to enforce and verify their titles that the deed of gift of 
Jonathan Whitehead, in 1725, to his grandson is filed in 1820 or there- 
abouts in the records of Orange County. N. Y. For imtance: 1797, Isaac 
Doty of Minisink, mortgages part of Lot 9, first division, etc., 197 acres 
for 000£. 1800, Benjamin Doty of Minisink, mortgages lots, part of Lot 
9, for 48 U. 1804, Nathaniel Doty and Abigail sell lots in No. 10. 1809, 
Isaac Doty and Elizabeth, his wife, mortgage part of his farm, 50 acres in 
Lot 9. 

In 1802, November 18, letters of administration were granted to Mary 
Doty and Isaac Doty on the estate of Benjamin Doty of Sussex County, 


N. J. From this it is inferred that Marj- Doty was his widow, as Isaac- 
was his oldest son.

Daniel Doty was an early pion.MM- of the State of Ohio. A hi.story of 
his life was published in " Mc Bride's Pioneer Biograi)hies, sketches of 
the lives of some of the Karly Settlers of Butler County. Ohio," Cincin- 
nati, O. , 1871, from which this account is abridged. 

Daniel Doty received such an education as could be acquired at the 
common schools of that day, but when he had arrived at manhood, the 
fame of the fertility and beauty of the fine country th.-n opening in the 
Far W<»st, attracted him, and he formed the resolution of exploring the 
country and judging for himself. Accordingly, on the 10th of September, 
1790, he left his home and proceeded to Fort Pitt (now Pittsburgh, Pa.j, 
whence he descended the Ohio River in a flat-boat to the then infant set- 
tlement of Columbia (now Cincinnati, O.), at the mouth of the Little 
Miami, where he arrived October 23. and concluded to remain. There 
were two hewed log houses standing near the bank of the river when 
Mr. Doty landed, one occupied by Major Benjamin Stites and the other 
by John S. Gano. Ahnost his first action was to enlist as a member of 
the militia company of the place, of which Gano was Captain and Eph- 
raim Kirby was Lieutenant. Every able-bodied man had to be enrolled. 

During the years 1790 2 the country was almost continually in a state 
of alarm on account of the depredations committed by the Indians, and 
Doty with others were continuually called upon to relieve and defend 
stations in their immediate vicinity. They were obliged to constantly 
keep their arms by them, were called upon to <lrill twice a week, and sub- 
ject to alarms almost nightly. In June, 1791, Daniel Doty, and a man 
named French, made an expedition to Danville, Ivy., for the purpose of 
escorting the first Presbyterian minister to their country. This was Rev. 
James Kemper, and he, with his wife and eight children, were safely es- 
corted through the wilderness to ColumV)ia, April :.'4. 1792. Mr. Doty 
left Columbia in a flat-boat and descended the Ohio and Mississippi livers 
to New Orleans, from whence he went by sea to New York and returned 
to his native place in New Jersey. He remained there till the fall of 1795 
when, with his second wife and child, he returned to the Miami country. 
In the spring of 179(5 he, with his wife, Betsey, and their children, re- 
moved to near where Middletown, O., now is, at that time a wilder- 
ness, where he commenced to improve a tract of land which he had pre- 
viously purchased. Here he spent the remainder of his life, and died near 
where he had built his first log cabin, on the bank of the Great IMiarni 
River, about one mile below where the town of Middletown is now situ- 
ated. No track of a wagon had then marked the ground to that place. 
When his cabin was raised and enclosed, he had no tabl(>, chair, bedstead 
nor cradle, and no boards to make them of. But using the abundant 
timber he s|)eedily improvised furniture from tiie slabs, saplings and 
trees, a hollow sycamore forming a cradle in which the babies were soon 
rocked to sleep. 


There wore but few settlers in the neighborliood, and no crops to supply 
the new comers. Mr. Doty had couseciuently to go to Cincinnati for a 
portion of the provisions to supply his family for the first year. He 
carried his corn meal home on horseback, and the wild game, which was 
plentiful, furnished all the meat desired. Mr. Doty took great delight in 
hunting and his adventures and hair-breadth escapes fill many pages of 
the " Biography," to which the reader is referred. 

He was the first collector of taxes in the part of the country where he 
settled, and must have travelled over 1,000 miles in the discharge of his 
duties. He visited New Jersey again in 1800. He lived to witness the 
Miami country rise from a wiklerness covered with dense forests, inhab- 
ited by wild beasts of prey, and Indians still more wild and savage than 
the beasts, to its present high state of cultivation and improvement. 

From a poor adventurer in a strange land, he became a man of wealth 
and influence in the community. ( )n May 2, 1848, he was attacked with 
a bilious fever, and on the 8th breathed his last at the age of eighty- 
three years. His remains were interred in the burying ground, east of 
Middletown, followed to the grave by a large number of relatives and 
friends, and a vast concourse of citizens. Daniel Doty and his wife, 
Betsey, lived together on their farm, near Middletown, more than fifty- 
four years. At the time of his death she was seventy-seven years of age.

A reunion of her decoudants was held at the old homdstead, September

eighty descendants, including a few relatives, were present. An interest- 
ing history was read by Miss Delia Dunlap, her grandchild, and appropri- 
ate addre-sses were delivered bj- Rev. John R. Jones, pastor of the old 
historic Salem Presbyterian Church, of which she has been a member for 
more than three score years and ten, and by Rev. Irwin P. McCurdy, D.D., 
Litt. D., honorary pastor of the Southwestern Presbyterian Church, Phil- 
adelphia, a grandson of her sister, Mary Doty McCurdy. The occasion 
was given a permanent ehara<,'ter by a good photograph taken of those 
present. Mrs. Dunlap is a remarkable woman for her years, her faculties 
all briglit, sight and hearing good, and an excellent rtiemory, especially of 
the olden time. She is one of the very few people now living, perhaps the 
only one, who have the distinction of being a daughter of a soldier in the
