John Doggett, the eldest son of John and Mary Doggett of Northumberland County, Virginia, was born in about the year 1732, as he was under guardianship in Northumberland County in 1753, but was of legal age when his father's estate was divided in 1755. His mother, Mary, had remarried before 1753 to James Garner. In 1763, John Doggett purchased land in Mecklenburg County in southern Virginia, and moved to that county. It is not clear when or where John and Anne Garner were married, but they were certainly married when John's mother Mary made a codicil to her will in late 1766 or early 1767, as Anne is bequeathed Mary's saddle and bonnet in the codicil, recorded 12 January 1767. Anne Garner was the daughter of James Garner, the second husband of Mary, and therefore was John's step-sister. It is most probable that John returned to Northumberland County to marry Anne and that they soon thereafter moved to Mecklenburg County where John had established a homestead. John's brother Benjamin and several members of the Garner family, including Anne's brother, James, Jr., followed John and took up residence in Mecklenburg County or adjoining Lunenburg County. In 1790, John sold his plantation in Virginia and moved, with his wife and large family, to Columbia County, Georgia, where he died in 1804. In his will, dated 22 May 1804, and recorded in Columbia County records on 18 Jun 1804, his wife and nine surviving children are named, together with his deceased daughter Mary Lamkin. The only child listed above not mentioned in John's will is Williamson, who apparently died young. His inclusion is based on family information furnished to Samuel Bradlee Doggett in 1883 by descendants of John. The exact ages and order of birth of the children is uncertain. John was too old to perform active service in the Revolution, but he apparently furnished supplies to the Army, as Public Service Claims filed by him are of record in the Virginia Archives. These claims have not been examined by the writer. His sons were too young to have served in the Revolutionary Army.

122:1 MARY DOGGETT; b. abt 1768, VA; d. bef 1804; m. abt 1785, Mecklenburg Co., VA (Marr. Bond, 19 Dec 1785), CLEOPHAS LAMKIN, son of James and Winifred Lamkin.
122:3 JESSE DOGGETT; d. Columbia Co., GA.
122:5 JOHN DOGGETT; d. 1813, Jasper Co., GA.

The loose will of John Doggett, dated 1813, recorded in Jasper County records, is preserved in the Georgia Dept. of Archives and History. John was a Corporal in the Rangers, U. S. Volunteers, in the War of 1812. No specific information about this unit, or John's service is known to the writer. John's brother, Asa, served as a Private in the same unit, and John's will names Asa's heirs as beneficiaries. John and Asa both died during the time of the War of 1812, but whether their deaths were war-related is unknown.
