In Reply to: Re: LOST IN CATAHOULA PARISH by Duane Cruse of 289

Thanks, Duane I also found in 1860 Catahoula parish census in White Sulphur Springs area.
B Doty age 35, Minerva, 25; Jasper 10; Louisa 6. If this is my Benajah he would have been 37, and Minerva, at 25 would have been 10 when she married in 1845. (has to be a mis-print) The Louisa, 6, in 1860 could be the L C, 16, in 1870. Benajah would have been 47, not 49, in 1870, and Minerva is still the wife. But why would Benajah be listed as John?
Some first hand information-- no proof.
Benajah's daughter married Billy Pittmon.
Cordelia Doughty married W P Pittmon.
Could Cordelia be the L C (Louisa Cordelia?)
W P could be William (Billy). A son Frank Pittmon lived in the Rhinehart area.
If this John Doty is my Benajah, then he was still in Catahoula parish in 1870. Does anyone have any records of him later than 1870? If this is not my Benajah, who is John Doty?
Can anyone help?
A Doughty
