~~ My maternal great grand Uncle ~~
Robert Doughty is my great grandma Laura's brother. I know he and his wife lived in Illinois, as his parents did. The parents, and their sons and their wives all later moved to Nebraska (in the late 1800's I believe,) to homestead. They all lived there the rest of their lives.
Only my great grandma Laura stayed behind in Illinois. She was married already when the family moved, and she remained here in Illinois until her death. It must have been hard to be so far away from her parents and her brothers, and their families.
I know the Nebraska branch of the family came back to Illinois for visits, because we have family photos of that, which I hope to get scanned. One is a four-generation photo of Ann Doughty, and her daughter Laura, and Laura's daughter Nellie, and Nellie's daughter Thelma. It was taken in 1918, right before Ann Doughty passed away. It is a priceless picture of 4 generations!
I am still researching Robert and his family. It took me a long time to find his burial site. Thanks to "Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness," I was able to get gravesite photos from Irv Miller. I hope to be able to add more to this site in the future.
Rest well dear Uncle.....
