Abigail DOTY SUTTON 1806-1860 VA>IN

For all those who have inquired about Abigail DOTY , her marriage to Jacob SUTTON, her ancestry back to the Mayflower, her descendents, and her realtionship/connection to Joshua DOTY/Lydia SCHOONOVER, I am posting this to give us a beginning point for conversation.

Abigail DOTY was the daughter of John DOTY and Elizabeth McKENZIE WILSON. She was born in Brooke Co. VA (now WVA), August 26, 1806.She was one of 10 children. She married Jacob Sutton November 21, 1834 in Johnson Co, IN and had 12 children. She died January 26, 1860 in Johnson Co IN. For those not familiar with IN, Johnson Co is the first county south of Indianapolis.

The line is as follows from Edward of the Mayflower. At the end of the message is how this line also ties into the John DOTY/Lydia SCHOONOVER family.

1) Edward DOTY/Faith CLARKE
2) Samuel DOTY/Jane HARMON
3) Edward DOTY/Sarah FAUNCE
4) John DOTY/Sarah ?
5) Peter Henry DOTY/Catherine POWELSON VOORHEES
6) John DOTY/Elizabeth McKENZIE WILSON
7) Peter F DOTY/Christina KEESLING
George DOTY/Rachel Elizabeth CONNER
Abigail DOTY/Jacob SUTTON
Sarah DOTY (never married)
Mary Polly DOTY/Nathaniel MARLIN
Asenath "Sena" DOTY/Burgess RAY
Catherine DOTY/Jacob SMOCK
Jane Ellen DOTY/Dr. Christian KEGLEY
Willam DOTY/Elizabeth RHODES

I am an eleventh generation descendent through Peter F DOTY/Christina KEESLING. My research is to publish a book of the descendents of John and Elizabeth. They were some of the first settlers to Johnson Co. IN. Their children were born in W VA, Ohio and Indiana. My research currently covers over 900 descendents. Some of the information is documented and I am working on documentation on the rest. Everything from Edward(1) to John(6) is documented in the Mayflower Through 5 Generations published by the Mayflower Society. John is shown as a child of Peter H, but it also shows his spouse.

I would appreciate any and all help. If your information is not documented, I would still apreciate it because it could contain valuble leads or possibly eventually I could document it. However I work full time and genration # 13 is on the way this fall, so my time is limited. :-)

The following is the only connection I have found so far between the John/Elizabeth(Wilson)Doty and the John/Mary Doty lines. There may well be others as this was a very close knit community. Supposedly the other John (married to Mary) was a descendent of the Mayflower also through Edward and Faith's son Benjamin. However, there were three generations of Benjamins and this documentation is not proven nor is it accepted by the Mayflower Society. I believe it is accepted by the Pilgrim Edward Doty Society, but don't quote me on that. :-)

1) Edward/Faith (Clarke) DOTY
2) Benjamin/Abigail (Whitehead) DOTY
3) Benjamin/ Rachel DOTY II
4) Benjamin/ Mary DOTY III
5) John/Mary DOTY
6) Joshua/Lydia (Schoonover) DOTY
7 )Nathaniel Alfred/Sarah (Robinson) DOTY
8) Thomas Jefferson/Mary Agnes (Sutton) DOTY

Mary Agnes SUTTON was the daughter of Lewis/Adeline Rahama (Smith) SUTTON
Lewis SUTTON was the son of Abigail DOTY and Jacob SUTTON (#7 on first chart)

I am willing to share any and all info but will respect those marked private of people still living.
