and

PRESLEY DOGGETT

(John(?), Thomas, Benjamin, Rev. Benjamin)

Home|Contents|Previous Page

No hard information has been forthcoming identifying the parents of Presley Doggett. Circumstantial evidence involving dates, places, names, etc. admits of no conclusion other than that Presley was the grandson of Thomas and Bathsheba Doggett of Caroline County, Virginia. Unfortunately, the documentary evidence in Caroline County records which would probably have given us this information was lost long ago, and to date no family bible or other documentation has come to light giving us this information. Of the eight sons of Thomas and Bathsheba, we can eliminate Reuben, Thomas, and James as potential fathers of this Presley, as we have some information about their descendants. We believe that Presley moved to South Carolina without leaving children behind and had a son Presley in South Carolina. This leaves Benjamin, John, William, and George. Benjamin is not found in the records, and may have died young. George and William seem to have been too young to be the father. This leaves only John, and the writer believes that he was probably the father of Presley. He was co-executor of Thomas’ will in Caroline County in 1776, and therefore of the proper age and residence. It must be emphasized, however, that this is not proven.
