John Doggett was probably born in Hawkins County, Tennessee,
and moved to Missouri as a young child with his parents, who
settled in the St. Louis area. Little is known about John, except
that he resided in St. Louis County about twelve miles from the
city of St. Louis. Living in the country, it is assumed that was
engaged in farming. He died in 1831, of convulsions and epileptic
fits. In 1829, John executed a deed in favor of William Carr
Lane, a prominent physician and the first mayor of St. Louis.
After Johns death, his widow, Nancy, and his heirs brought
litigation against Lane concerning title to the property, which
was appealed to the Missouri Supreme Court. In an 1848 opinion,
the court stated that Lane was a "relative" of John
Doggett, but was not more specific as to the nature of the
relationship. As there is no logical connection on the Doggett
side of the family, we must presume that Lane was a relative of
Johns mother, whose identity has not been determined.
William Carr Lane was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania in
1789, the son of Presley Carr Lane. He studied medicine at
Shelbyville, Kentucky, and moved to St. Louis in 1819. He was
elected mayor of St. Louis in 1823. In 1852, he was appointed
Governor of New Mexico Territory.
Although his exact relationship to the Doggett family has not
been established, it is obvious that Johns third son,
William Carlane, was named for Lane, with the names "Carr
Lane" being condensed into the single word
From the 1830 and 1840 census returns for St. Louis County, we
can ascertain that John and Nancy Doggett had seven children,
five sons and two daughters. .The identities of four of the sons
are known, but the name of the second son, born about 1820, has
not been ascertained. It has been suggested that David B.
Doggett, enumerated in St. Louis in the 1850 census, might have
been that son, but as David was not born until 1822 or 1823, and
no other connection with Johns family is apparent, this
suggestion seems to be without foundation.
The identity of the two daughters is likewise unclear. Neither of
them were living with their mother in 1840, and it must be
assumed that they were either married or deceased at that time.
315:121 DAVIS WHITESIDE DOGGETT,
son of John and Nancy (Massey) Doggett; b. 8 Jul 1814, St. Louis,
MO; d. 14 Apr 1893, Siskiyou Co., CA; bur. Doggett Ranch Cem.; m.
17 Jun 1844, St. Louis, MO, MARY GALLATIN.
Davis Whiteside Doggett was the eldest child
of John and Nancy Doggett. In 1844, at about age 30, he was
married in St. Louis to Mary Gallatin. Nothing is known about
Mary. She may have died not long after marriage, and there is no
evidence that there were any children.
Davis Whiteside was in California in 1852, trying his luck in the
gold fields, but still considered himself a resident of Missouri.
He apparently went back to Missouri, as family information
indicates that he again went to California, this time to stay, in
1856, along with his brother John Clarke Doggett and family, and
settled in Siskiyou County, where he farmed until his death in
1893. In an entry in the 1892 Election Register, made shortly
before his death, he was described as being of "light
complexion, blue eyes, grey hair."
