  • Notes 
    • One source lists Moses' sons as Andrew Jackson, Christopher, Jessie, Carroll, and Ambrose.

      Family legend says that Moses Doty had served under Gen. Andrew Jackson in the Battle of 1812 [he would have been only 16 in 1812, so take this all with a grain of sand!]. He had been married before, but took a second wife while in Louisiana. She was supposedly related to General Beauregard. Being Southern sympathizers, the Doty family was under suspicion of the law.
      Moses Doty supposedly was a neighbor of the James family, of Jesse and Frank James gang fame. There were many disputes between Northern and Southern sympathizers at this time, and during one of these raids Mrs. James' second husband, Dr. Samuals, was hung in the front yard of the James home. A neighbor (Moses Doty?) was hung at the same time. Mrs. (James) Samuals cut her husband down and he lived, but the neighbor died. It wasn't too long before the Doty family, left without a father, struck out for Oregon.
