RE: Dougherty's in No. Burke, NY
Thank you for replying. I am wondering if your Thomas Dougherty was a sibling of my Patrick Dougherty...their birthdates are early 1800s/late 1790s? Do you have a "tree" on Ancestry where I could check any information you may have? Do you have Thomas back to Ireland, and if so, the county? Do you have siblings for Thomas? I am also very interested in the photos you mentioned of Thomas and others on a farm in Canada. Was this farm right across the border with NY state in Quebec? My Dougherty's came thru Canada from Ireland to the USA but I don't know if perhaps they lived in Canada for awhile. Back then, the border was simply on a map...settlers traveled back and forth for work, church related ceremonies, schooling, etc. I would appreciate anything you might have and be willing to share. And, likewise, if I have anything that would help you, I'd be more than happy to share it with you! Thank you in advance, take care, Laurie

Dougherty's in No. Burke, NY
Hi, Eva, my name is Laurie LaPage and I happened to check the find a grave site for the North Burke cemetery and saw your requests. What a surprise when I saw all these Dougherty's! My grandfather's name was Charles Clarence Dougherty of the Malone/Franklin County area! I'm wondering if there is any connection to our families? My great grandfather was Patrick Dougherty and his father was Bernard/Barnard who came from Ireland to the northern NY area thru Canada. I would be interested if there is any relationship of Bernard and your Thomas, Sr. or Jr. I took lots of other Dougherty photos in this country cemetery and will upload them in the next day or so. If you have any other requests in the area, please just let me know. Take care, Laurie
