Descendants of Cornelius O'Dochartaigh

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1. CORNELIUS1 O'DOCHARTAIGH was born 1440 in inishowen, Tyroconnell, Ireland, and died in Sharagore, Inishowen, Tyroconnell, Ireland. He married SARCE MCDAVITT. She was born 1445 in inishowen, Tyroconnell, Co. Donegal, Ireland, and died in inishowen, Tyroconnell, Co. Donegal, Ireland.

 

Notes for CORNELIUS O'DOCHARTAIGH:

The O'Dohertys, a branch of the Cinel Conaill and of the same stock as the O'Donnells, were originally chiefs of Cinel Enna and Ard Miodhair, now angl. Ardmire, in the barony of Raphoe, but about the beginning of the 15th century, they became lords of Inishowen and one of the most powerful families of Tirconnell, a position which they retained down to the reign of James I, when, after the rebellion of Sir Cahir O'Dogherty, their possessions were confiscated and granted to Sir Arthur Chichester. The O'Doghertys are now one of the most numerous of Irish families.

The O'Dohertys of Inishowen descend from Conall Gulban, a Milesian prince of the royal house of Heremon who won possession of the area now known as Donegal, in the beginning of the fifth century. Conall was the brother of Eoghan (Owen) who conquered Tir Eoghan (Tyrone) and son of the Irish monarch, Niall of the Nine Hostages, the man responsible for kidnapping St. Patrick to Ireland in A.D. 405. From Conall the territory obtained the name of Tir Coneill, or the Land of Connell, and his posterity became known as the Cinel Connaill, or the race of Connell.

Specifically the O'Dohertys get their name from Dochartach, son and heir of Maongal and grandson of Fianan, Lord of Inoshowen, who was the third son of Ceannfaola, prince of Tir Connell, and 12th in lineal descent from the aoresaid Conall Gulban. In itself the name Dochartach means "hurtful" or "disobliging." It is a name of great antiquity.

Few early censuses in Ireland exist, but the Hearth Money Rolls for County Donegal in 1665 and for County Derry in 1663 listed dozens of O'Dougherty (the O means grandson of) householders, some in every parish.

On the Inishowen Peninsula on the north coast of County Donegal, many shop signs bear the name O'Doherty; it is the most common in the county, and indeed the 15th most common surname in all of Ireland. A Doherty Family Heritage Center has been established on the western foot of the peninsula, Inch Island, just north of Derry, where people from all over the world have collected genealogical data to visit and study their roots, and a Doherty Heritage Trail on the Peninsula leading to several Doherty castles or ruins dating from the 1300-1600s.

Derry (to the Irish republicans), or Londonderry (to the British), is the city on the River Foyle that separates Northern Ireland (part of Britain's United Kingdom), from the Republic of Ireland, and was the scene of bloody confrontations during the rebellions which led to Ireland's freedom, and even since then. At armed, sandbagged guard posts on both sides of the border, vehicles were halted and scrutinized by soldiers for the north or south, when I was there in 1988 and 1991.

The Inishowen Peninsula of County Donegal lies between Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly where those rivers flow into the North Sea and is the home territory of the O'Dohertys.

Though a centuries-long history of the chiefs of the clan can be told, the last with any power was Cahir O'Dogherty, the son of John Oge. In 1608 grievous dissension arose between the Governor and Cahir; the Governor abused him with insults and contempt. Cahir vowed revenge, and attacked the town and killed the Governor. Following that, Cahir had several more encounters with the British and held his ground for several months in Donegal. The new British Lord Deputy put a reward of 500 marks o his head and the reward was son collected when Cahir was shot dead by an English marksman who crept up on him while he was encamped near Kilmacrennan. He was subsequently beheaded and the gory trophy sent to Dublin.

Cahir's vast estates were confiscated -- no doubt the reason the entire exercise was engineered. Those who had owned their property had to start paying rent to English landlors. In parts of the Donegal and other counties, landlords forced the people to leave their homes on very short notice, on little excuse. The abandoned, roofless houses are called "eviction houses" by the people. And that is how and why many Irish who could, came to America, as well as to Australia, England, or Scotland, more than a hundred years before the terrible Potato Famine of mid 1800s.

THE LAGGAN, of Co. Donegal, should not be confused with the Lagan Valley Constituency created just south of Belfast, Northern Ireland, U.K., in 1983, which combined parts of the old South Antrim and North Down with bits and pieces from elsewhere

Notes for MICHAEL MOR DAUGHERTY:

Our immigrant ancestor Michael (Mor)* Daugherty was born in The Laggan; his wife Catherine Rodgers was born in Manorcunningham in The Laggan; their three sons William (the blacksmith), Michael (Oge)*, and Charles were born in Muff, Inishowen; Lifford; and Raphoe.

 

Michael (Mor)'s grandfather Liam (William) (Mor) was born on the Isle of Barth, Burt (a little south of Burnfoot-Bridgend on the British road map below, just below where the road turns off to the Inishowen).He died at Raphoe in The Laggan. His son Liam (Oge) was born in The Laggan.

 

Liam (Oge)'s son Michael (Mor) and his family immigrated to America in 1727, probably with the large Caldwell settlement to New Castle, DE. Joseph Caldwell was the Daughertys' Presbyterian landlord who immigrated because of the English crown's persecution of non-Anglicans, both Protestant and Catholic. With his brothers and brothers-in-law (including a Dougherty), and others they sailed from the port of Londonderry. After landing in Delaware, the group moved through Pennsylvania and south to Virginia, where many of them formed a Caldwell settlement near Charlotte. Another of the families was Patton, which we see in frequent contact with the Daughertys, Magills, and Pattersons in Augusta Co., VA.

By 1735 Michael (Mor) Dochartaigh/Doherty/Daugherty was a storekeeper in Newlondon Derry, Chester Co., PA. Abt 25 Jan 1737/8 he and his wife and sons moved with the colony southwest to Augusta Co., VA, settling on Borden's Great Grant in what later became Rockbridge Co. (There may have been daughters we don't know about).

Abt 25 Jan 1737/8 he and his wife and sons moved with the colony southwest to Augusta Co., VA, settling on Borden's Great Grant in what later became Rockbridge Co. (There may have been daughters we don't know about).

William Daugherty (called "Sam" by the Cherokee) was one of the first Indian agents for the colony of Virginia; he married Elizabeth Bunch, a Cherokee. Michael (Oge) Daugherty married Mary Clark. Charles Daugherty married Rebecca Cunningham whose family came from Ireland with the same colony. Charles, our ancestor, was killed 17 Jul 1763 by Cornstalk's Shawnee raiding party on Kerr Creek; his family was spared by being at church. William's wife Elizabeth was a heroine, riding up the valley to warn other settlers. After those attacks, William and Elizabeth moved further south.

William and Michael (Oge) died in Montgomery Co., VA. Many of the children and grandchildren of Michael (Mor) Daugherty were pioneer settlers in Lincoln Co., KY, starting in 1775.

"On looking at a map of the County Donegal, it will be seen

that the north-eastern part of the county, which is the most

northerly part of Ireland, is a peninsula washed on the eastern

side by the waters of Lough Foyle and on the western by Lough

Swilly. This is Inishowen, a mountainous and, to a large

extent, a barren country. Immediately to the south of it is a

fertile and comparatively flat country, lying between the river

Foyle and the upper reaches of Lough Swilly, and extending in

one direction from the City of Derry to Stranorlar, and in

another from Lifford to Letterkenny.

"This is the district which in by-gone times was known

under the name of THE LAGGAN, and formed the most productive

and desireable portion of the ancient territory of Tyrconnell .

Generation No. 8

 

8. CHARLES8 DAUGHERTY (MICHAEL MOR7, LIAM6 O'DAUGHERTY, LIAM5, SEAN4 O'DOCHARTAIGH, CONN3, AODH2, CORNELIUS1) was born 1716 in Lagan Valley, Donegal , Ireland, and died July 17, 1763 in Kerr Creek, Augusta Co Va. He married REBECCA CUNNINGHAM 1729, daughter of JAMES CUNNINGHAM and MARGARET UNKNOWN. She was born 1715.

 

Notes for CHARLES DAUGHERTY:

born ca 1716, Lagan Valley, Donegal, married Rebecca Cunningham(?), and was killed by Indians 17 Jul 1763, on Kerr Creek, Augusta Co., in a raid by Cornstalk's braves, on a Sunday morning when most of the inhabitants were away at church, in what became Rockbridge Co. Charles moved to Augusta Co. with his father from Chester Co., PA, by 1738, and by 1745 settled on Kerr Creek.

In 1763, William's wife Elizabeth was a heroine in the terrible raid by Cornstalk; the Shawnees were seen from Fort Young on Jackson River and an express was sent to William Dougherty's, but he was away from home, so Elizabeth mounted and raced up the Cowpasture valley warning settlers, who fled to the mountains before the Indians arrived. The settlers of Kerr Creek were less fortunate and Charles Dougherty, among others, was killed.

 

From - Annals of Augusta County, Virginia from 1726 to 1871 by Jos. A Waddell

"The smaller band of Indians made their descent upon Kerr's creek on the 17th of July (1763). Their number was twenty-seven, Robert Irvin having counted them from a bluff near the road at the head of the creek. Some weeks before, two boys, named Telford, reported that when returning from school they had seen a naked man near the path. This report was not much thought of till the massacre, when it was supposed that the man seen by the boys was an Indian spy sent out to reconnoiter....

From this point they had a full view of the peaceful valley of Kerr's creek. Hastening down the mountain, they began the work of indiscriminate slaughter. Coming first to the house of Charles Daugherty, he and his whole family were murdered. They next came to the house of Jacob Cunningham, who was gone from home, but his wife was killed, and his daughter, about ten years of age, scalped and left for dead. She revived, was carried off as prisoner in the second invasion, was redeemed, and lived for forty years afterwards, but finally died from the effects of the scalping. The Indians then proceeded to the house of Thomas Gilmore, and he was and his wife were killed, the other members of the family escaping at that time. The house of Robert Hamilton came next. This family consisted of ten persons, and one-half of them were slain. By this time the alarm had spread through the neighborhood, and the inhabitants were flying in every direction. For some reason the main body of the Indians went no farther..... The people on Kerr's creek had repaired the losses...basically Indians attacked again, only there were more of them. the wife of Thomas Gilmore, standing with her three children over the body of her husband, fought with desperation the Indian who scalped him. She and her son, John, and two daughters, were made prisoners....

An entire family of Daughertys, five Hamiltons, and three Gilmores were slain....Mrs. Gilmore struck up, with plaintive voice, the 127th Psalm of Rouse's version....The Indians then separated into several parties, dividing the prisoners among themselves. Mrs. Gilmore and her son, John, fell to one party and her two daughters to another. The last she ever heard of the latter was their cries as they were torn from her.....the mother and son were also parted, she being sold to French traders and the boy retained by the Shawnees. Finally he was redeemed and brought back by Jacob Warwick to Jackson's river where he remained till his mother's return."

 

Long before any white man had explored the entire Kentucky area, it was claimed by Virginia as part of her Augusta County. Daniel Boone brought his family to Kentucky in 1773; established the first permanent settlement in Kentucky at Harrodsburg in 1774, and a year later founded Boonesboro. That same year, 1775, John Daugherty, the first of the family in Kentucky, came to the area a few miles from Boonesboro which would become Lincoln County.

Our part of the Daugherty migration to Kentucky was the second wave, descendants of Charles Daugherty and wife Rebecca in the 1780s, ten years after his brother Michael Daugherty II's sons. After Charles was killed by Indians in Augusta Co., VA in 1763, his widow and children remained there about ten years before some moved west into Kentucky.

Charles and Rebecca's son Cornelius, born ca 1729 probably in Pennsylvania, was a weaver who immigrated with his father and grandfather to Augusta Co. from Chester Co., PA in 1738. Cornelius served in Capt. George Robinson's company of militia in 1742. From 1742-49 Cornelius and his wife (1) Mary Hill lived on Cedar Creek on the North fork of the Roanoke in Augusta Co. They had, according to one book, six sons and six daughters, but not all their names are known; only George H., Noble, Ann, William, Isabel, Christopher, Abraham, Robert, Alexander, and Thomas Daugherty. Mary Hill died and Cornelius married about 1770 (2) Agnes _____. They had William, James Hill, John, and Cornelius R., Jr.

 

Charles Daugherty had, besides Cornelius, William, Thomas, and David, a son Daniel who in 1779 operated an iron works on Irish Creek of South River, Augusta Co., VA, not far from brother David's Mill Creek farm. Other brothers were Anthony, who died in 1792, Rockbridge Co., VA, and James who acted as Anthony's executor. The first tax list of the new Rockbridge Co. (taken out of Augusta) in 1778 listed James, William, and George Daugherty. In 1782 James, Anthony, William and Thomas were on the list. James started an iron works in Wythe Co., VA 1783-90, and is said to have died there in 1799.

 

Between 1755 and 1756, CHARLES served in the Augusta Co. militia during the French and Indian war. In Jul 1763, CHARLES was killed by Indians in a raid by Cornstalk's braves on Kerr Creek, on a Sunday morning when most of the

 

 

 

Notes for REBECCA CUNNINGHAM:

The family Cunningham take their name from the district of Cunningham in Northern Ayrshire. The land of Kilmaurs of that area was granted by Hugo De Moreville, Constable of Scotland to a vassel named Warnebald in the 12 th century and it is from his descendants that the Cunningham family originate.

 

Cunningham is a Scottish place name that described the man from the location near Kilarmock and first recorded in 1153 as Cunegan, a word with Breton origins. The spelling with -ham added it earliest know mention in 1180. When of Irish origin, Cunningham is the Anglicized form of O'Cuinneagain meaning descendant of Cuinneagan, a form of Conn meaning leader, chief.

9. WILLIAM8 DAUGHERTY (MICHAEL MOR7, LIAM6 O'DAUGHERTY, LIAM5, SEAN4 O'DOCHARTAIGH, CONN3, AODH2, CORNELIUS1) was born 1712 in Muff, Inishowen, Donegal, Ireland, and died July 06, 1773 in Montgomery Co, VA. He married ELIZABETH BUNCH 1732 in PA. She was born 1720.

 

Notes for WILLIAM DAUGHERTY:

. William DAUGHERTY the blacksmith was born circa 1712? at Muff, Inishowen, Donegal, Ireland. He married Elizabeth BUNCH circa 1732? at PA? Three of his children were baptized by the Rev. John Craig in 1749 at Augusta Co., VA. He was officially granted the land on Cowpasture River on 3 Nov 1750 at Botetourt Co., neither he nor Charles Dougherty over on Kerr Creek could be

served summonses because the Indians were so bad. A series of

forts was built the following year, but the Indians continued

to raid, and William's neighbor Archibald Clendenning, Jr., was

killed by them in 1761. 3

his wife Elizabeth was a heroine in the terrible raid by

Cornstalk; the Shawnees were seen from Fort Young on Jackson

River and an express was sent to William Dougherty's, but he

was away from home and Elizabeth mounted and raced up the

Cowpasture valley warning settlers, who fled to the mountains

before the Indians arrived. The settlers of Kerr Creek were

less fortunate and Charles Dougherty, among others, was killed

17 Jul 1763. 4

In the third wave, some children of Michael Mor Daugherty's son William (the blacksmith) and wife Elizabeth Bunch emigrated in 1791 from Botetourt Co., VA to KY. Little is known of their son Henry. Their children Joseph, William, and Agnes were baptized by the Rev. John Craig in 1749 in Augusta Co. -- the family was Presbyterian.

Of those, Joseph married (1) Rachel Jordan in Russell Co., VA ca 1769, and had five children Nicholas, John, James, Rachel, and Nathaniel, all in Fincastle Co., VA. Their mother probably died in childbirth, for Nathaniel was born 15 Jan 1781, and Joseph married (2) Mrs. Elizabeth Drake Sayers, a widow, on 15 Nov 1781 in Montgomery (now Wythe) Co., VA. Joseph and Elizabeth had seven more children: Elizabeth, Nancy, Joseph Jr., Samuel, Sarah "Sally," Robinson, and Mary "Polly" born in Montgomery, Russell, and Lee Cos., VA, 1783-1800. Joseph died in Lee Co. VA in 1825. All his children remained in Lee Co., VA, though some grandchildren immigrated to Kentucky well past the earlier ones.

Joseph's brother James went to Kentucky in 1786 and settled near its southern boundary in Greene Co.

Their brother William Daugherty II (son of William the blacksmith) married (1) Elizabeth Daugherty and they had Joseph, Agnes, George, James, Elizabeth, and William III, all in VA except the latter born in Guilford Co., NC. William II married (2) Mary Bridger in Augusta Co., VA on 30 Jan 1786. Four days before the wedding, on 26 Jan in Botetourt Co., VA, he divided his land and slaves, perhaps in settlement four days before his 2nd marriage, among his sons William, Joseph, and George, and gave his daughters Elizabeth and Agnes 40 pounds each. James was already in Kentucky.

On 7 Nov 1791 William II sold the land his father settled in 1743, now in Bath Co., VA, to neighbor Robert Stilington, to go to Kentucky. The deed was signed by the entire family, including 2nd wife Mary. Son James signed 6 Nov 1790 in Kentucky (Green Co.), and that's probably where William and Mary moved, to join him, and died.

Notes for JOHN DAUGHERTY:

John Daugherty (emigrated 1775), son of Michael II and Mary Clark, came to Lincoln Co. from Fincastle Co., VA. John had been born ca 1743 in the Forks of the James River in the portion of Augusta Co. which became Rockbridge Co. It is probable that his first trip to Kentucky was as a Capt. in the Virginia militia in Fincastle Co. beginning 1774, when he had the chore of delivering horses prior to the Battle of Point Pleasant on the Ohio River during the Revolutionary war. On 3 May 1774, Fincastle Co., he went into court to prove that part of his left ear had been bitten off in an affray (since a cropped ear might mark a thief). The grand jury, among its members Benjamin Logan who later took the colony that settled present-day Lincoln Co., KY, indicted Isaac Spratt for this act, but also presented John Dougherty for unlawfully quarreling. The Spratts were neighbors who had sold land to John's brother George Daugherty.

John married Isabelle Allen Patton; owned huge tracts of land in both Lincoln and Jefferson Cos., but by 1789 was settled in Jefferson (now Trimble) Co., KY. In 1812 he sold his Kentucky holdings and removed to Orange Co., IN with his sons and many other kin. There he died on 14 Feb 1828. John and Isabelle had seven sons and four daughters, one of whom is believed to be Mary Daugherty the wife of Col. James W. Patton, "founder of Louisville."

and John Wilson settled at Locust Thicket near Danville, KY,

having raised a crop of corn there in 1775. In March they made

a journey to the Falls of the Ohio "to see the country and make

improvements and Entrys." During Indian attacks of 1776,

others left to live in a fort, but John Daugherty remained on

the disputed land. His near neighbor Archibald McNeil was

killed by Indians in 1777; in 1778 Dougherty was Capt. of a

militia company. 5

 

it is unlikely that he brought his family to Locust Thicket

until now, but meanwhile he had been acquiring large tracts of

land south of Danville. He owned thousands of acres and had

Dougherty Station 1.5 miles below Danville on a branch of

Clark's Run then known as Dougherty's Creek but now as Balls

Branch, near the Wilderness Trace. John built his house on a

slight eminence about 200 yards from the confluence of

Dougherty's Creek and Clark's Run and it was visible from the

Trace. His brother Robert lived in the vicinity for several

years. 3

across the Ohio.

 

led as Capt. a company of 42 men, including his brothers Robert

and George, on Clark's expedition following the Blue Licks

disaster. The Indians never gave Kentucky any great trouble

after this expedition, and the number of settlers increased

rapidly.

 

most of the land around Dougherty's Station was being farmed,

and a grist mill was built nearby on Dougherty's Creek. John

and his brothers Joseph and James were the only three

Daughertys on the 1783 Lincoln Co. tax list. 6 7

 

continued purchasing land in the Hanging Fork of Dix River

Notes for JOHN DAUGHERTY:

John Daugherty Name: Maj. Name: John Dougherty

Sex: M Change Date: 12 OCT 2001 Birth: 1791 in KY

Emigration: 1808 Note: went West, to St. Louis

 

traveled to the Rocky Mountains and spent six years on the

Columbia River or Oregon Terr. in service of Manual Lisa, a

Spanish fur trader; and Dougherty at 19 was the recognized

leader of the group 1

Occupation: was Indian agent on the Upper Missouri; his nomination

confirmed by President John Quincy Adams on 19 Jan 1827. John

was known as a firm friend of the Indians BETWEEN 1827 AND 1837

Death: 28 DEC 1860 in Liberty, MO Note: in his home

Residence: 1856-28 DEC 1860 "Multnomah", Liberty, Clay Co., MO

Multnomah, a Clay County mansion built in 1856 about seven

miles northwest of Liberty, and its builder, Maj. John

Dougherty, are pictured on a tinted postcard reproduction of a

painting by George Barnett.

A stream of carriages with guests

are arriving at the front door for an "evening summer party."

The major was well known for his hospitality.

Major Dougherty's colorful career as an explorer, fur

trapper, first Indian agent in Kansas, government interpreter,

major in the U.S. Army, sutler and freighter, Missouri

Congressman and plantation owner, began in 1808 when he was 17.

He spoke French and seven Indian dialects.

His early explorations led west through Missouri in Clay

County along Shoal Creek. The place was alive with wild game,

bright with wild flowers and fruit, and with a heavy growth of

walnut, oak and sycamore. He vowed he would return eventually

to establish his permanent home, and did so 20 years later. He

named his Clay County plantation after the beautiful falls in

Oregon, which he had visited on his first journey west.

The Indian word Multnomah means "many waters." The home

faced the wooded banks of Shoal creek, tumbling along over

limestone and flint that the Missouri tribe of Indians had

cherished during their occupancy of the same area.

John Dougherty died at Multnomah Dec. 28, 1860, his wife,

Mary Hertzog Dougherty, originally from St. Louis, died 13

years later. Sons of the major took over the large farm and

occupied the house. Some of their descendents reside in the

county today.

The mansion was destroyed by fire in April 1963. It was

vacant at the time and had recently been condemned as unsafe.
