29 "Jan Skllman married Anne Hull, a cousin of John Doty, but it is not certain that Anne Hull is the mother of Ocy. "Since John Doty named his second son Cornelius and his first daughter Sarah, a daughter of Sarah Skillman and Cornelius Breese seemed a good possibility for a first wife for John Doty. However, the family of Sarah and cornelius Breese was difficult to track down because an error on the part of the early Skillman genealogist caused him to leave the family of Sarah Skillman and Cornelius Breese out of his Skillman genealogy. This error was caused by Dutch nomenclature which was in a state of transition at the time that early colonial records were kept. ("The Doughty Tree," March, 1987, Vol. 11, No. 1, pg. 15) SKILLMAN, Ocy Agatha (P5106)

31 "Jeremiah has passed his whole life in Franklin county, engaged in agricultural pursuits, having inherited his father's farm, which he still owns and occupies. He has always been a stanch Democrat, but has never aspired to official honors, preferring to give his time and attention to his farm. He married Miss Eliza Foster, a native of Virginia, who went west with her parents at an early day and settled in Dearborn county, Indiana. The Fosters subsequently moved still further west. Their family comprised three children,--George, Eliza and Lewis,--Eliza being the only one of the number fo remain in Indiana. The children born to Jeremiah and Eliza Doty were Anna, wife of J. Story; John A., whose name heads this sketch; George, of Rockdale, this county; Silas, a resident of Missouri; and Francis, of Highland township, Franklin county. The mother of these children died and the father was subsequently married again, his second wife dying in 1883. By the second marriage there was one son, William Doty, a resident of this county. Mr. Doty is a member of the Methodist church, as also were his wives." ["Biographical and Genealogical History of Wayne, Fayette, Union and Franklin Counties, Indiana. Chicago: The Lewis Publishing company, 1899. Vol. II, p. 1032.] At one time Jeremiah also owned a general store near Bath, Indiana. Found in the 1850 census in Franklin County, Indiana: Jeremiah, Elizabeth, Anne (age 2) and John (age 4/12). DOTY, Jeremiah (P42190)
32 "John A. Doty...remained a member of his father's household until the time of his marriage, when he settled on a rented farm. About 1884 he engaged in the sawmill business in Brookville township, remaining there until 1887, when he came to Rockdale. Here he purchased his present mill site and erected a large sawmill, which he has since operated, doing a large and prosperous business. In addition to running his mill he is engaged in contracting, building both houses and barns, taking the contract complete for building and material. Mr. Doty was rocked in a Democratic cradle and has affiliated with this party all his life. He was at one time elected justice of the peace, but did not qualify, and has never accepted any office." (Biographical and Genealogical History of Wayne, Feyette, Union and Franklin Counties, Indiana. Chicago: The Lewis Publishing Company, 1899. Vol. II, pg. 1032) DOTY, John A. (P42195)

37 "Silas Doty...a New Yorker by birth. When a young, unmarried man [about 1845 according to one descendant, but this is long after his marriage] Silas Doty came west with a small colony, makng the trip down the Ohio river on a flatboat and landing at Cincinnati. From Cincinnati he came to Franklin county, Indiana, at an early day and settled in Highland township. The lady whom he afterward married came down the river in the same boat with him. It was soon after their marriage that he located in Highland township, entering a large tract of land and devoting his energies during the following years to its improvement and cultivation. Here he died at the ripe age of eighty-eight years. He was a consistent and active member of the Primitive Baptist church, as also was his wife, she, too, being a native of the Empire state. Politically he was a Jackson Democrat, and while he took a commendable interest in public affairs he never aspired to office. He was in the war of 1812. His only child was Jeremiah, the father of [John A. Doty]." ["Biographical and Genealogical History of Wayne, Fayette, Union and Franklin Counties, Indiana. Chicago: The Lewis Publishing company, 1899. Vol. II, pp. 1031-1032.] The 1830 Franklin County, Indiana, census lists Silas Fran Doty as head of house (male 30-40), 1 male 5-10, 1 male under 5, 1 female 30-40, 2 female 5-10, 1 female under 5. They are still in Franklin County in 1840, but the family makeup is different: 1 male 40-50, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 5-10, 1 female 20-30. This suggests the death of his wife and two daughters. Next door to his son Jeremiah, Silas appears on the 1850 census, Franklin County, Indiana: Silas, Phebe, Judith Heiler (age 20), Abrame Heiler (11) and Cornelius Blackhorn (age 11). It appears that he had married Phebe after Judith's death, and that Phebe was a widow with, perhaps, an eleven year old son, Cornelius, and a 20 year old daughter, Judith, who had a son Abrame. These are only conjectures from the information on the census. The 1860 census for Franklin County lists Silas Franklin Dote. DOTY, Silas (P4018)
