Part 664d – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1889 Wilmington City Directory – GG-Grandparents Philip and Margaret Doherty aka Dougherty
Published on 2012-04-18 10:52:00
The search continues into the genealogy of the Doherty Family… and it certainly can get confusing as to which Doherty is which Dougherty is which Docherty. The fact that there are a number of documents and publications that spell and present the surname in different ways only means that the scope of search only broadens. Thank you Helen for your insight and knowledge…
One fact that is for certain is that the Doherty/Dougherty family did live at 731 Madison Street in Wilmington, Delaware. This certainty assists me with determining if I am focusing on the correct family regardless of the spelling of the surnames.
Today in The Wilmington City Directory for 1889 I discovered the individual listings for both gg-grandfather Philip Doherty and gg-grandmother Margaret Dougherty.
Even though each is recorded with a different variation of the surname Doherty and Dougherty, they are both listed at the same location 731 Madison Street.
GG-Grandfather Philip is recorded as Moulder and working at P.& J. Co., aka Pusey and Jones Company.
