Thanks, Denise, for the recap of info on William Dooley (1781-1851).
I am glad that Baker pubished this material. It's terrific.

I have a marriage date for William's daughter, Katherine to Lewis W. Stowers, Jr., as Dec. 21, 1844, Anderson Co., SC. Katherine or
Catherine Dooly is described as "youngest daughter of William Dooly, Esq. of Elbert Co., Georgia" in the marriage notice published in
"Early Anderson County, South Carolina, Newspapers, Marriages and Obituaries
(1841-1882)." In his will and in the Baker summary, we learn that William Dooley owned land in SC. Does anyone have copies of SC land deeds, or whatever, they can pass along?

His sons-in-law, William Haley Crawford and Leroy K. Crawford were
brothers, sons of John Crawford and Henaritta (Ritta) Haley. I am a
descendant of William Haley Crawford and Sarah Ann Dooley.

I would like to identify the parents of the Brantleys who married into
this Dooley family. Does anyone have any info on them-who where
their parents, where in NC did they come from, etc. Many Brantleys
came
from Orange and Chatham Co., NC-did they migrate to GA with the
Dooleys? Were the Dooleys in those NC counties? If so, is that were
Bennett Dooley (b. 1795) was born?

All of the other children of William and Elizabeth Dooley married in

I have more to add on William Dooly. The following information I
found in the History of Hart County 1933 by John William Baker:
(Note: the book was published in 1933)

"William Dooly

We have no record of the ancestry of William Dooly and his wife
Elizabeth. He obtained a large body of land of 850 acres in Elbert
(later Hart) County adjoining the lands of Col. Richard Durrett,
Sinclair McMullan, John McCurry, and others, located along the
Savannah River, including an island of about sixty acres at or near
the head of McDonald's Shoals.
He owned a number of slaves and engaged in farming, and was what might
have been called a 'planter', due to the size of his plantation and
extensive farming operations. Besides the place on the river, he
owned considerable other lands in the county, and also in South
Carolina.
He operated pole boats on the Savannah River, transporting cotton and
other produce to Augusta, and perhaps other markets, and merchandise
on the return trips.
He owned a mill on a prog of Powderbag Creek; also the ferry on the
Savannah River, known as Dooly's Ferry, where the old Holly Springs
road crossed, leading out of South Carolina into Georgia, afterwards
known as Craft's Ferry, Captain J.F. Craft later obtaining possession
of the place.
He was what was known as a local Methodist preacher; was prominent in
financial, political, social and religious affairs.
When Hart County was created his place was included in the new county,
and in laying out the militia districts, the district including his
home was called Dooly's District, which name it retained on up until
the year 1861, when the court ground was established at Lodwick
Alford's, when the name was changed to Alford's District.
The children of William Dooly and wife, Elizabeth, were as follows:

Polly Dooly, who m. Barnabas Barron, 2/17/1820
Nancy J. Dooly m. Joseph M. Brantley, 3/18/1823
(after death of Brantley, m. Moses Huchenson)
Allen D. Dooly m. Letty M. Brantley, 4/22/1824
(after death of Dooly, m. Lewis Bobo, 7/7/1829)
William W. Dooly m. Mary Brantley, 7/5/1827
Mitchell N. Dooly m. Katherine Brantley, 11/11/1830
Sarah Ann Dooly m. William H. Crawford, 8/20/1832
Elizabeth A. Dooly m. Leroy Crawford, 12/13/1832
Barnabas J. Dooly m. (name and date not known)
Frances L. Dooly m. Van D. Gary, 2/9/1826
Katherine Dooly m. Lewis W. Stowers, (date not known)

William Dooly in his will, besides his children, makes bequests to his
granddaughters, Sarepta Jane Crawford and Elizabeth Gaines, and to his
grandsons, William D. Barron, Rufus Barron, and Hamilton Barron, and
two dollars each to his sons-in-law, Barnabas Barron, Moses
Hutchenson, Leroy K. Crawford, and William H. Crawford.
In his will he nominated William W., Mitchell N., and Barnabas J.
Dooly executors.
It appears that two of his sons, Mitchell N. and Barnabas J. Dooly,
came into possession of his home place, where they lived perhaps until
death.
Mitchell N. Dooly lived near the ferry on the river and Barnabas J.
Dooly lived at the crossroads at the place now occupied by L. A.
Chamble."

I found the above information at the Savannah Public Library.

I also found DAR Records - Elbert County Historical Collections:

May Term 1829, page 101; William W. Dooly appointed guardian of
William and Elizabeth Dooly orphans of Allen Dooly, dec'd. Elizabeth
having been born since his death.

Hope any of this information helps!

Frances L. Dooly m. Van D. Gary, 2/9/1826
Katherine Dooly m. Lewis W. Stowers, (date not known)

William Dooly in his will, besides his children, makes bequests to his granddaughters, Sarepta Jane Crawford and Elizabeth Gaines, and to his grandsons, William D. Barron, Rufus Barron, and Hamilton Barron, and two dollars each to his sons-in-law, Barnabas Barron, Moses Hutchenson, Leroy K. Crawford, and William H. Crawford.
In his will he nominated William W., Mitchell N., and Barnabas J.
Dooly executors.
It appears that two of his sons, Mitchell N. and Barnabas J. Dooly, came into possession of his home place, where they lived perhaps until death.
Mitchell N. Dooly lived near the ferry on the river and Barnabas J. Dooly lived at the crossroads at the place now occupied by L. A. Chamble."

I found the above information at the Savannah Public Library.

I also found DAR Records - Elbert County Historical Collections:

May Term 1829, page 101; William W. Dooly appointed guardian of William and Elizabeth Dooly orphans of Allen Dooly, dec'd. Elizabeth having been born since his death.

Hope any of this information helps!

Hi Brian,
Thanks for your help. I knew it was a long shot. Our cousin had info from
her great aunt concerning Charles and Ellen. It is mostly about Charles, but
this is what Great Aunt wrote:
Ellen and Charles were married on board the ship by the captain on their
way to Canada. Ellen was a school teacher in Ireland. Charles was indentured
to a man as apprentice carpenter(?) He came to United States later. Raised
family, Mary, Aunt Kate, Aunt Ellen, Uncle Jim (and maybe Aunt Belle). Charles
also had four brothers who left Ireland for the US.
Charles as a bachelor, volunteered to bury the yellow fever victims at New
Orleans. He was paid in gold, which he took back to Ireland and dropped it
into his mother's lap as she shelled peas so she knew he was back. He last
saw her running toward the ship with her red hair hanging down her back
begging him to stay in Ireland. Aunt Belle used to meet immigrants from
Ireland and helped them write home to Ireland.
It is touching story, and I wish I knew more. If I find any more info, I
will let you know. Feel free to use whatever you would like. Thanks again

Hi Brian,
I am not exactly new to genealogy, but I'm sure I still have a lot to learn.
The name I am looking for is Ellen Dowling. She was a school teacher in
Ireland who came to Canada cir. 1858. And then to the US. I understand she
was married on board ship to Charles Boyle. I don't know much more about
them. This was told to me by a relative. I am in the process of going to FHC
to research census and ship arrivals. If you have any information on anyone
who may be this person, I would greatly appreciate it. I realize this is a
long shot. But, you never know.

Here are a couple of pieces of information I have run across which do not help me...maybe someone else.

The Book the will of Mathew Shaup has lots of Dooley hits, such as:

William Boyd was born ca 1710 and Died in January 1794 in Bedford County, VA. His daugther, Mary Boyd (died 1819) married Moses Dooley.
They moved to Kentucky in 1781 and then to Indiana. Their son Rueben (b November 14, 1773) was born in Bedford county, Va. Their son, Silas, was born in Kentucky.

Also from that book, George Dooley, of Bedford Co., VA was the executor of Mathew Shaup's will, which was dated January 29, 1791.

George Dooley left land in Kentucky to his sons, Noah and Aaron but since both were dead, the land went to grandsons Job Sharp and Aaron B. Dooley.

From a different source, here are some Georgia marriages:

Habarsham County:

George Yearwood married Eva Dooley on Oct 8, 1830
John Goodson " Elizabeth Dooley on October 18, 1832
Martin Camp " Lucinda Dooley on Decemebr 23, 1823
James T. Bryan " Elizabeth Ann Dooley on September 2, 1838
William C. Alley " Nancy L. Dooley on October 3, 1838

John Dooley married Zeberia Gartney on May 17, 1818
Forsyth Co,

James Dooley married Martha Wadkins on February 9, 1840

Joseph M. Brantley married Nancy J. Dooley on March 18, 1823

I have a marriage date for William's daughter, Katherine to Lewis W. Stowers, Jr., as Dec. 21, 1844, Anderson Co., SC. Katherine or Catherine Dooly is described as "youngest daughter of William Dooly, Esq. of Elbert Co., Georgia" in the marriage notice published in "Early Anderson County, South Carolina, Newspapers, Marriages and Obituaries (1841-1882)." In his will and in the Baker summary, we learn that William Dooley owned land in SC. Does anyone have copies of SC land deeds, or whatever, they can pass along?

His sons-in-law, William Haley Crawford and Leroy K. Crawford were
brothers, sons of John Crawford and Henaritta (Ritta) Haley. I am a
descendant of William Haley Crawford and Sarah Ann Dooley.

I would like to identify the parents of the Brantleys who married into
this Dooley family. Does anyone have any info on them-who where
their parents, where in NC did they come from, etc. Many Brantleys
came
from Orange and Chatham Co., NC-did they migrate to GA with the
Dooleys? Were the Dooleys in those NC counties? If so, is that were
Bennett Dooley (b. 1795) was born?

All of the other children of William and Elizabeth Dooley married in Elbert Co., Ga.

Here is another version of the deed abstract re: orphans of Allen D. Dooley. It shows that his brother William W. Dooley and his father William Dooley both participated, as follows; Elbert Co., Ga. Deed Book V, 1828-1831, p. 182. William W. Dooly & William Dooly are bound to the Justices of the Inferior Court sitting for Ordinary Purposes, for $1200, 4 May 1829. William W.

I have more to add on William Dooly. The following information I found in the History of Hart County 1933 by John William Baker: (Note: the book was published in 1933)

"William Dooly

We have no record of the ancestry of William Dooly and his wife Elizabeth. He obtained a large body of land of 850 acres in Elbert (later Hart) County adjoining the lands of Col. Richard Durrett, Sinclair McMullan, John McCurry, and others, located along the Savannah River, including an island of about sixty acres at or near the head of McDonald's Shoals.
He owned a number of slaves and engaged in farming, and was what might have been called a 'planter', due to the size of his plantation and extensive farming operations. Besides the place on the river, he owned considerable other lands in the county, and also in South Carolina.
He operated pole boats on the Savannah River, transporting cotton and other produce to Augusta, and perhaps other markets, and merchandise on the return trips. He owned a mill on a prog of Powderbag Creek; also the ferry on the
Savannah River, known as Dooly's Ferry, where the old Holly Springs road crossed, leading out of South Carolina into Georgia, afterwards known as Craft's Ferry, Captain J.F. Craft later obtaining possession of the place.
He was what was known as a local Methodist preacher; was prominent in financial, political, social and religious affairs.
When Hart County was created his place was included in the new county, and in laying out the militia districts, the district including his home was called Dooly's District, which name it retained on up until the year 1861, when the court ground was established at Lodwick Alford's, when the name was changed to Alford's District.
The children of William Dooly and wife, Elizabeth, were as follows:

Polly Dooly, who m. Barnabas Barron, 2/17/1820
Nancy J. Dooly m. Joseph M. Brantley, 3/18/1823
(after death of Brantley, m. Moses Huchenson)
Allen D. Dooly m. Letty M. Brantley, 4/22/1824
(after death of Dooly, m. Lewis Bobo, 7/7/1829)
William W. Dooly m. Mary Brantley, 7/5/1827
Mitchell N. Dooly m. Katherine Brantley, 11/11/1830
Sarah Ann Dooly m. William H. Crawford, 8/20/1832
Elizabeth A. Dooly m. Leroy Crawford, 12/13/1832
Barnabas J. Dooly m. (name and date not known)
Frances L. Dooly m. Van D. Gary, 2/9/1826
Katherine Dooly m. Lewis W. Stowers, (date not known)

William Dooly in his will, besides his children, makes bequests to his granddaughters, Sarepta Jane Crawford and Elizabeth Gaines, and to his grandsons, William D. Barron, Rufus Barron, and Hamilton Barron, and two dollars each to his sons-in-law, Barnabas Barron, Moses Hutchenson, Leroy K. Crawford, and William H. Crawford.
In his will he nominated William W., Mitchell N., and Barnabas J.
Dooly executors.
It appears that two of his sons, Mitchell N. and Barnabas J. Dooly, came into possession of his home place, where they lived perhaps until death.
Mitchell N. Dooly lived near the ferry on the river and Barnabas J. Dooly lived at the crossroads at the place now occupied by L. A. Chamble."

I found the above information at the Savannah Public Library.

I also found DAR Records - Elbert County Historical Collections:

May Term 1829, page 101; William W. Dooly appointed guardian of William and Elizabeth Dooly orphans of Allen Dooly, dec'd. Elizabeth having been born since his death.

Hope any of this information helps!

from Orange and Chatham Co., NC-did they migrate to GA with the
Dooleys? Were the Dooleys in those NC counties? If so, is that were
Bennett Dooley (b. 1795) was born?

All of the other children of William and Elizabeth Dooley married in Elbert Co., Ga.

Here is another version of the deed abstract re: orphans of Allen D. Dooley. It shows that his brother William W. Dooley and his father William Dooley both participated, as follows; Elbert Co., Ga. Deed Book V, 1828-1831, p. 182. William W. Dooly & William Dooly are bound to the Justices of the Inferior Court sitting for Ordinary Purposes, for $1200, 4 May 1829. William W. Dooly was appointed guardian of William Dooly & Elizabeth Dooly, minors & orphan children of Allen D. Dooly, decd. If William W. Dooly performs his duties this to be void. (signed) Wm. W. Dooly, Wm. Dooly. Wit; Job Weston, C.C.O. Rec. 18 Aug. 1830.

I have more to add on William Dooly. The following information I found in the History of Hart County 1933 by John William Baker: (Note: the book was published in 1933)

"William Dooly

We have no record of the ancestry of William Dooly and his wife Elizabeth. He obtained a large body of land of 850 acres in Elbert (later Hart) County adjoining the lands of Col. Richard Durrett, Sinclair McMullan, John McCurry, and others, located along the Savannah River, including an island of about sixty acres at or near the head of McDonald's Shoals.
He owned a number of slaves and engaged in farming, and was what might have been called a 'planter', due to the size of his plantation and extensive farming operations. Besides the place on the river, he owned considerable other lands in the county, and also in South Carolina.
He operated pole boats on the Savannah River, transporting cotton and other produce to Augusta, and perhaps other markets, and merchandise on the return trips. He owned a mill on a prog of Powderbag Creek; also the ferry on the
Savannah River, known as Dooly's Ferry, where the old Holly Springs road crossed, leading out of South Carolina into Georgia, afterwards known as Craft's Ferry, Captain J.F. Craft later obtaining possession of the place.
He was what was known as a local Methodist preacher; was prominent in financial, political, social and religious affairs.
When Hart County was created his place was included in the new county, and in laying out the militia districts, the district including his home was called Dooly's District, which name it retained on up until the year 1861, when the court ground was established at Lodwick Alford's, when the name was changed to Alford's District.
The children of William Dooly and wife, Elizabeth, were as follows:

Polly Dooly, who m. Barnabas Barron, 2/17/1820
Nancy J. Dooly m. Joseph M. Brantley, 3/18/1823
(after death of Brantley, m. Moses Huchenson)
Allen D. Dooly m. Letty M. Brantley, 4/22/1824
(after death of Dooly, m. Lewis Bobo, 7/7/1829)
William W. Dooly m. Mary Brantley, 7/5/1827
Mitchell N. Dooly m. Katherine Brantley, 11/11/1830
Sarah Ann Dooly m. William H. Crawford, 8/20/1832
Elizabeth A. Dooly m. Leroy Crawford, 12/13/1832
Barnabas J. Dooly m. (name and date not known)
Frances L. Dooly m. Van D. Gary, 2/9/1826
Katherine Dooly m. Lewis W. Stowers, (date not known)

William Dooly in his will, besides his children, makes bequests to his granddaughters, Sarepta Jane Crawford and Elizabeth Gaines, and to his grandsons, William D. Barron, Rufus Barron, and Hamilton Barron, and two dollars each to his sons-in-law, Barnabas Barron, Moses Hutchenson, Leroy K. Crawford, and William H. Crawford.
In his will he nominated William W., Mitchell N., and Barnabas J.
Dooly executors.
It appears that two of his sons, Mitchell N. and Barnabas J. Dooly, came into possession of his home place, where they lived perhaps until death.
Mitchell N. Dooly lived near the ferry on the river and Barnabas J. Dooly lived at the crossroads at the place now occupied by L. A. Chamble."

I found the above information at the Savannah Public Library.

I also found DAR Records - Elbert County Historical Collections:

May Term 1829, page 101; William W. Dooly appointed guardian of William and Elizabeth Dooly orphans of Allen Dooly, dec'd. Elizabeth having been born since his death.

Hope any of this information helps!

    Citation Text: 1:- spent some time at the nat'l archives last week and was able to pull up the passenger manifest of the last trip my gmother made from Ireland to America (Aurania, 12/17/24) -- and discovered the birthplaces for her and for my ggrandmother -- does anyone know anything about "Baltinglass" (I did find it on a map)? My ggrandmother was born in "Mullaghroe" and I haven't found that one on the map -- any info out there? They listed as their friend/relative in Ireland a "Mrs. Gray, Tilmore (i think that is a road or area), Ballytore" my aunt tells me she remembers Mrs. Gray and that she lived in the "big stone house". Will be excited to hear from any of ya'll. thanks, mary lowrey
    What I know of my Irish heritage at this point isn't a whole lot and I'd appreciate any additional pieces to the puzzle. Here goes:
    Dennis ? DOWLING - County Wicklow / d. 1936 - a blacksmith by trade
    Theresa MURPHY - d.1926?
    Richard Michael DOWLING - b. 1880? / emigrated to USA 1912? / d. 1971
    Bertha (Mary?) DOWLING BARTON - emigrated to Canada ?
    Nan DOWLING - emigrated to London
    Jim DOWLING - emigrated to London (I think there was at least one brother, but I don't know any details)
    Patrick CASEY - railroad man? - / lived & died in County Wicklow
    Mary Bridget POWELL - b. Mullaghroe 1845 - emigrated USA, 1924 - d. 1926, Newark NJ
    Ellen Casey (j.j. morgan) DIVINE - emigrated to US < 1897 / d. Nov., 1897
    Anna Casey HARRISON - emigrated to US < 1901
    Maggie Casey MACDONALD - emigrated to US < 1901
    Mary Bridget CASEY - b. Baltinglass 1885 / emigrated to US 1901? / d. 1928

    My grandparents are: Richard (Dick) Michael DOWLING (born in County Wicklow approx 1880) married (in USA about 1912)
    Mary Bridget CASEY (born in Baltinglass 1885)
    Family Lore -- Dick was a blacksmith, as was his father - Dennis ? DOWLING - before him, and fell in love with Mary CASEY when she returned from America to visit her mother Mary Bridget POWELL CASEY. Mary refused to stay in Ireland and Dick followed her across the sea where they married and produced 5 children. Mary returned to Ireland for her mother and brought her to USA in 1925. Mary Bridget was in poor health and only survived until 1927.
    Family "folklore" is that Mary Bridget POWELL was from a well-respected (if not wealthy) British family - possibly an Aunt or cousin to Lord BADEN-POWELL of the Boy Scouts - anyway, she met and fell in love with Patrick CASEY, a "rail-road man," married and raised her family in County Wicklow. Supposedly, her POWELL family disowned her over this marriage.
    I wonder why????
    Meanwhile, Dennis DOWLING was the village blacksmith and apparently rather prosperous. It seems that he married at least three times; my gfather's mother (Theresa MURPHY) being possibly his last wife. He died in 1936, and I have no clue as to any ancestors on this side of the family prior to these (my ggrandparents).

    2:- Brian, Have just been looking at your beautiful web page and would like to submit my little bit of information. I have records (marriage, and death for my grandparents) but that is all the documentation I have. Would love to have this included in your database and who knows??? maybe I'll find a whole set of genuine "Irish cousins." thanks, mary lowrey / USA - ga
