I am just now realizing this info pertains to the William W. DOOLEY (c.1808-1882) I am researching. Could you please give me a list of his siblings as well as re-mention his parents (and grandparents names?) Also, does anyone have any information on Black BRANTLEY? After passing away sometime before 1830, his two orphaned children went to live with Mr. and Mrs (formely Mary BRANTLEY) William W. DOOLEY. Those children were Catherine BRANTLEY and William BRANTLEY. I beleive this Catherine BRANTLEY is the same Catherine that marries Mitchell N. DOOLEY( she would have been possibly 16-18 years old)... I need help!

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

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.

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!

two dollars each to his sons-in-law, Barnabas Barron, Moses

It appears that two of his sons, Mitchell N. and Barnabas J. Dooly,

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.

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

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 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:

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!

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

I would like to identify the parents of the Brantleys who married into

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

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

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!

I am just now realizing this info pertains to the William W. DOOLEY (c.1808-1882) I am researching. Could you please give me a list of his siblings as well as re-mention his parents (and grandparents names?) Also, does anyone have any information on Black BRANTLEY? After passing away sometime before 1830, his two orphaned children went to live with Mr. and Mrs (formely Mary BRANTLEY) William W. DOOLEY. Those children were Catherine BRANTLEY and William BRANTLEY. I beleive this Catherine BRANTLEY is the same Catherine that marries Mitchell N. DOOLEY( she would have been possibly 16-18 years old)...

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

I am just now realizing this info pertains to the William W. DOOLEY (c.1808-1882) I am researching. Could you please give me a list of his siblings as well as re-mention his parents (and grandparents names?) Also, does anyone have any information on Black BRANTLEY? After passing away sometime before 1830, his two orphaned children went to live with Mr. and Mrs (formely Mary BRANTLEY) William W. DOOLEY. Those children were Catherine BRANTLEY and William BRANTLEY. I beleive this Catherine BRANTLEY is the same Catherine that marries Mitchell N. DOOLEY( she would have been possibly 16-18 years old)... I need help!
