 QUERIES


DOUGHTY McGUIRE GOODEN FEATHERSTON
John M. Doughty b. 1797 KY, d. 1875 dark Co., IL; m. 1817 Washington Co., IN to Jane McGuire b. 1796 IN/PA?, d. 1874 dark Co.. IL. Their first child was Featherston Doughty b. 8 May 1818. I believe he married in 1835 Coles Co., IL to Charity Gooden and that they appear in 1850 Benton Co., AR and 1860 Coles Co., IL censuses. The Featherston name may have come through Jane McGuire - but how? Jane McGuire's parents and siblings unknown to me.
