Among the sources used for this page were birth, death and marriage records, will abstracts and deeds of Lancaster County, Virginia; Marriage records of Northumberland County, Virginia; California death records; World War I Draft Records; World War Ii Draft Records; WW II US Army Enlistment Records; Social Security Death Records; and Census Records, especially of Lancaster and Northumberland Counties. Valuable information was furnished to me by Ben Stewart, Dot Tucker-Houk, Greg Doggett, Beth Atkinson and Peggy Cantrell. On line databases published by Bryan Norris, James Braun, and "Christie" were very helpful, and obituaries of Cyrus G. Doggett, Carroll A. Doggett, and Arthur H. Doggett were consulted. Special mention needs to be made of Wayland "Bud" Doggett and his wife Mary, with whom we spent an enjoyable afternoon almost thirty years ago at their home in Charlottesville, Virginia, and of the kind folks at the Mary Ball Washington Museum and Library, who entertained us in 1978 with a lovely picnic at their (then quite new) facilities in Lancaster Court House and went out of their way to provide us with all the Doggett informaton they could dig up out of their files and otherwise. Also of the late Howard Doggett of Mollusk whom we visited on that same trip to Lancaster County in 1983. All of these people provided information which has found it's way into this page. Also used extensively are Lancaster County cemetery records, especially from the Bethel United Methodist Church, which we were able to personally copy.

512:1 BENJAMIN DOGGETT, son of William and Betty Doggett; b. Lancaster Co., VA; d. abt. 1821, Lancaster Co., VA; m. 1791, Lancaster Co., VA (Marr. Bond, 19 Dec), ELIZABETH PHILLIPS STOTT.

Benjamin Doggett was the eldest son of William Doggett. He was born in the early 1760's, almost certainly in Lancaster County. He was married probably in December, 1791, in Lancaster County, as a marriage bond dated 19 December 1791 is of record. His wife, Elizabeth Phillips Stott, was the granddaughter of William Stott and is referred to in his will. The identies of her parents have not been determined. A division of her grandfather's estate made in 1791 and recorded 17 April 1792 distributes property to "Benjamin Doggett who intermarried with Elizabeth P. Stott." Three sons were born of the marriage.
By deed dated 10 September 1788, executed by his father William and stepmother Judith, Benjamin was given a tract of land of 184 acres in size, part of which had been purchased by his grandfather William in 1749, and then descended to his father, and part of which had been purchased by his father in 1779. By deed dated 20 June 1791, a few months before his marriage to Elizabeth, Benjamin conveyed the 184 acres to his brother George "in consideration of the natural love and affection which he bears to the said George Doggett." It is probable that this property is the same land as is devised to George by his father's will, as it describes it as "per a deed granted to him." If that is the case, then it would seem that the deed was part of a family estate planning arrangement designed to provide each of the older sons with a parcel of real property.
In his father's will executed in 1795, Benjamin was given the plantation on which he and his family resided. The will recites that Benjamin had purchased the land, but that William had paid for it. The devise clearly was intended to assure that Benjamin received that land as his share of his father's estate, even though it apparently was in Benjamin's name. the writer has not seen a recorded deed evidencing the purchase, but a search of county records around 1791 might well disclose such a transaction as a part of estate planning process discussed above.
In his father's will, Benjamin's brother James was given the home plantation. Apparently, the title was not clear, and Benjamin had inherited an interest in 45 acres of the land from his mother Betty. On 28 May 1801, he sold that interest to James for fifty pounds current money, thereby consolidating the title in James.
Benjamin is recorded in the 1810 census of Lancaster County. The return shows Benjamin and a female 26-45 years, which is clearly Elizabeth, born probably in the late 1760's. A male child, age 16-26, would be William S., and a male child, age10-16, would be Benjamin. The census also shows two males, ages 0-10. This presents a problem, as Hugh B. was clearly born before 1800. Where, then, is Hugh B., and who were the two small boys in Benjamin's household? Were they two other children who did not survive, or were they perhaps children of a relative? The census return also shows Benjamin as owner of five slaves, a reasonable number for working a small plantation along with his three teenage sons.
Benjamin died about 1821, without a will, and the home plantation was partitioned by court decree dated 1 January 1822 among his three children. Elizabeth had apparently predeceased him, as no dower rights are reflected. Benjamin had also purchased a 40 acre tract of land in Lancaster County in August 1798. In November 1822 the three children and the spouses of the two married sons sold that parcel for $82.00 current money to Rawleigh W. Downman, a prominent citizen of Lancaster County and owner of adjoining property, and undoubtedly divided the proceeds of sale equally.
In the opinion in Doggett v. Kem, mentioned above, Benjamin is called :"Hugh." Benjamin does not appear to have been called by that name in any other documents of record, and this reference would seem to be in error, probably due to confusion with his son :"Hugh B." whose full name may well have been "Hugh Benjamin."

William S. Doggett was the eldest son of Benjamin Doggett. Shortly before his father's death, William married Charlotte T. Beane, daughter of John Beane, Sr., of Lancaster County, as evidenced by a marriage return of record. William appears in Lancaster County census returns for 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, and 1860. From these returns, and other data, we can determine that he was born in late 1792, and that Charlotte was born about 1800. Charlotte does not appear in the 1860 census return, and seems to have died at some time between 1850 and 1860.
William died in 1867, at the advanced age of 75, leaving a will dated 12 March 1867, recorded in Lancaster County on 19 August of that year. The will mentions his three sons, John L., Richard W., and Robert W., and two daughters, Margaret Ann Taff and Martha Hazzard. Both daughters were deceased at that time, leaving children, mentioned in the will. The will also mentions children of John L, but not the children of Richard and Robert. The reason for that omission is not known. The 1840 census indicates the existence of another daughter, born 1830-1835, but she apparently did not survive to adulthood.
Charlotte's father, John Beane, Sr., apparently died intestate in Lancaster County in or prior to 1842, and she and her husband, William, were allotted a portion of his home plantation upon division of his estate. On 18 October 1842, William and Charlotte sold the tract to James Chowning of Lancaster County.

Benjamin Doggett was the third child and second son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Doggett. By best estimation, he was born about 1794, almost certainly in Lancaster County. He was married about October 1820, as evidenced by a marriage bond of record in Lancaster County dated 6 October 1820, to Nancy P. Barrack. His brother, Hugh B. Doggett, was surety on the marriage bond.
Benjamin appears in the Lancaster County census returns for 1820 and 1830. Nancy appears also in 1840. Benjamin apparently died between 1830 and 1840, and Nancy between 1840 and 1850. At the time of the opinion in the Doggett v. Kem lawsuit mentioned above, in 1845, Benjamin was deceased, and there were six children named as surviving heirs being the children listed above. Analysis of the census returns shows another male in the household, born 1825-30. This was probably another son who died young.
Benjamin had received a portion of his father's plantation upon division of the estate in 1822, consisting of about 90 acres. By deed dated 5 March 1823, Benjamin and Nancy sold that tract to Reuben Barrack, perhaps the father of Nancy, for the sum of $75.00.
