Part 695d – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1873 Birth and Baptism – Great-Granduncle John Patrick Doherty – Wilmington, Delaware

26 May 2012

Good Day,

This is my 900th Posting to A Genealogy Hunt. A Genealogy Hunt began as a blog in May 2009. All-things-being equal this may mean that I take about 65/6 days off every year. Maybe, but how do I account for the 240 Postings to Quilts SB during the same time period.

The second St. Paul’s document in my genealogy search that I was able to find is the Baptism Registration of great-granduncle John Patrick. His birth, in Wilmington, is recorded 13 March 1873 and his baptism was celebrated 16 March 1873.

Based on the documents that I have found and we now have on file the following are the Doherty (aka Dougherty) siblings up to 1873:

Baptized at St. Peter’s –

1. Gerald – Born 28 November 1864 (Part 678d)

2. Helen - Born 25 March 1866 (Part 679d)

3. Mary Ellen – Born 14 January 1868 (Part 683d)

4. Margaret – Born 22 December 1869 (Part 684d)

Baptized at St. Paul’s –

5. Philip – Born 3 September 1871 (Part 693d)

Here is the image of the page 36 from the St. Paul’s Register of Baptisms. I have downloaded it from Item 5 of the microfilm FHL [1788084].

And my transcription –



Register of Baptisms

Date – March 16
Name of Child – John Patrk
Lawful Child of – Phil. Dougherty & Margt

Note that the priest, once again, did enter the Doherty surname as “Dougherty” in the Register of Baptisms.

Stay tuned for the next update to the Doherty Family Line.
