Re: Dixie Dooley Clan
Posted by: Billie Lowry (ID *****5987) Date: November 14, 2006 at 11:46:01
In Reply to: Dixie Dooley Clan by Jim Dooley of 1955


I am looking for information on Jubal, brother of Dixie, who were sons of LaFayette Newton Dooley.

My gg grandmother, Minnie Virginia Dooley, married William Madison Carter. Minnie listed Jubal as her father on the marriage register that I obtained from LVa.

I cannot find Jubal in any census records after the 1880 census when he is listed as 8 years old.

I find on the Bedford Co website a cemetery listing for a child names Ernest whose birth date/age closely matches the age of "Jubal". Ernest's cemetery listing has him born 1871 and died 1891. Another child, Glenn, who was also listed on the 1880 census is also listed as having died in Dec 1892. Both children are listed as being the children of LN Dooley. There is not a child named "Ernest" listed on the 1880 census.

I was told that Henry Dooley was Minnie's father and Mary E Ruff her mother. Then I spoke by phone with a woman who said that Minnie was the half-sister of the children of Henry and Mary.

I believe that Minnie was born out of wedlock to Mary Ruff and that Jubal (maybe real name Ernest) was her father. I am looking for proof that Jubal was Minnie's father and now any info that Ernest and Jubal are the same person.

Any help unraveling this mystery would be greatly appreciated.
