Re: Mary DORTRY, Henry County, Ga


I don't know how I missed the Dougherty family in DeKalb County! Good looking out :D
I will investigate further.

As for William Dougherty in Clarke County, he is a son of Capt. Charles Dougherty of Clarke County and is not the same Wm. who was in Columbia County. Previous census finds the name spelled DORTREY among family HOH's.

I can't tell you anything other than what I know from research about Mary DORTRY because I've never met my paternal family.
According to the census (1900-1910-1930) she was born 1868-1870.
I'm off again looking for her death certificate, as the death record (Mary F. DORTRY, d. 1931 Henry County) turned out to have been her 1 yr. old granddaughter (dau. of David and Julia Grant). Amos died in 1927 and Mary F. was found widowed and living with her daughter Mattie HIGHTOWER in Atlanta.

Thanks for all the've given me some insight :D
