The data in this page has been extracted primarily from published public records, including Highland County, Ohio, records published by McBride; Rush County, Indiana, marriage records, and other Indiana marriage records; Wayne County, Indiana, cemetery records; the Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, and relevant census schedules. Much of the information abut the persons adopting the "Daggett" surname spelling was supplied to me by the late George and Sydney Daggett, who transcribed a great many Wayne County, Indiana, records at the courthouse, in their search for descendants of the New England Daggetts.

		(other children)
William Doggett, the second child of James and Ann Doggett of Culpeper County, Virginia. Along with his brothers George and Armstead, he moved to Highland County, Ohio, in the 1820's, where he carried on the trade of cooper and also operated an inn or hotel. Unlike his brothers, however, he did not remain in Highland County, but moved westward to Butler and Preble Counties, and finally settled in Rush County, Indiana, where he continued his cooper's trade and also engaged in the grocery business. As a young man, he, like his two brothers, served on two occasions in the Virginia militia in the War of 1812. William and Eliza had children in addition to the four listed above, but their identities have not come to the writer's attention.
