How you can tell a Dougherty or Daugherty or Doherty is NOT one of OURS
CAPTAIN CAMPBELL'S COMPANY
JOHN DAUGHTERY, born in Northampton County, N. C., aged 20 years, five feet nine and a half inches high, ruddy complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, and by occupation a silversmith, latterly accustomed to the sea. He is remarkable for his extreme silence and downcast appearance, addicted to intoxication, and when drunk is both sullen and stupid - deserted from Rowan County, N. C., 20th Nov. 1814
from Deserters part of roster War of 1812 NC
EXTREME SILENCE AND DOWNCAST APPEARANCE, ADDICTED TO INTOXICATION, AND WHEN DRUNK BOTH SULLEN AND STUPID?
None of our Dougherty men, for sure!
