  • Notes 
    • After his marriage, William Wilson Doty remained in Moccasin Twp., on the north bank of Wolf Creek until 1882 when he moved to SW SE S6 T8N R4E (see Book A., pg 26 - land entries of EffinghamCo., IL, dated 29 Jun 1883). From this farm he moved to Doster, KS during Sept 1884 by covered wagon. The wagon was pulled by two horses which made the round trip. Other family members in the wagon were Thomas Doty, Wilse's brother, And Frank Williams with his family and his mother-in-law Louisa Doty and her family. Frank took a cow with hi. While going west Mack and Web Doty fell behind with the cow and nearly had it sold by the time Frank found them. They intended to sell the cow and use the money to pay their way back to IL. The party settled east of Argonie, KS. While in Kansas, W.W. Doty forked for a Mr. Shanklin. He arrived back in IL with more money than he had when he left. He settled on farm which was nine miles south of Argonia, KS. The farm was in Morris Twp., Sumner Co., KS. His wife's parents had settled in this area five years earlier. Wilse Doty remained in Kansas for one years; thereafter, Sept 1885, he returned to Moccasin Twp., Effingham Co., IL, where he remaind the rest of his life. He was listed on the Kansas State Census Report for Morris Twp., Sumner Co., KS in March 1885. His principal occupation was farming, but he held several elective offices in the township,among them being Supervisor and rod Commissioner. Being a hard working man and understanding the art of saving, he became a well-to-do- farmer in this community. He purchased his first cultivator from Mark Brown of Beecher City for twenty dollars. It had wooden trip pins instead of springs. He liked to us a "chill breaking plow." It had a hard moldboard. He sold his log cabin in Section 6 to Lidge Benson after he had built a new house in Section 7 in 1893. Mr. Benson hauled it to Beecher City for stove wood.
