Part 661d – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1874-75 Delaware State Directory and Gazetteer – Doherty (aka Docherty, aka Dougherty) – Wilmington, Delaware

09 April 2012

Good Day,

And as we are getting ready and packing for our trip to MQX East 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island, I thought that I would take a few minutes and spend some time on the genealogy of Doherty Family.

I did a bit more searching and I discovered Andy’s great-great-grandfather Philip Dougherty in The Delaware State Directory and Gazetteer, for 1874-75. It includes a complete Directory of the City of Wilmington. The entry on Page 128 for gg-grandfather Philip reads:

Dougherty, Philip, Lab., h 731 Madison

And even though the City Directory is 1874-75, 26 years later Andy’s great-grandaunts Greta, Frances, Mary, Katherine, and Elizabeth, gg-grandparents Philip’s and Margaret’s five daughters, live just about three blocks away around the corner at 911 West Eighth Street.

I noticed that there are a number of other Doughertys, possibly related to gg-grandfather Philip on Madison Street. Also are the two, Daniel and Hugh Dougherty, the same men who were boarding in 1870 with the Doughtery Family.

The source citation of the above pages of The Delaware State Directory and Gazetteer for 1874-75 is the Haith Trust Digital Library.

Stay tuned for the next installment of the Doherty Family Genealogy.
