Part 662d – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1897 Death – GG-Grandfather Philip Doherty – Wilmington, Delaware

16 April 2012

Good Day,

And we have returned home from the MQX Show in Providence, Rhode Island and it is now time to get back into my genealogy hunt and search.

So here goes…

Following up from Part 661d my search for the Doherty Family has resulted in more documentation.

From the Delaware Vital Records at the Delaware Public Archives in Dover, and data collected via, I chanced upon the 28 May 1897 Death Registration of Andy’s great-great-grandfather Philip Doherty. His age, at his death is entered at 65 years which gives an approximate birth year of 1832, and it is recorded that he was born in Ireland.

Here is the image of the 1897 Death Registration –

It is a shame that gg-grandfather Philip’s parents’ names were not entered in the Registration. This just means that the search continues, and deepens.

I also discovered the Death Register containing the listed entry of the recording of gg-grandfather Philip’s passing. From here is the downloaded image –

Stay tuned more to come.
