Birth: Aug. 11, 1760
Chatham County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1850
Washington County
Indiana, USA

Son of Ruth Dixon and John Doan(5), Joseph(4), Daniel(3), Daniel(2), Deacon John Doane(1). Born Cane Creek, NC. Married to Hannah Stupp (probably in NC). He was a scout in the American Revolution and was disowned by Cane Creek Meeting of the Society of Friends for bearing arms. He was restored to membership, June 2, 1792. In the 1790 US Census of Hillsborough Dist., Chatham Co., NC, he is listed as having one free white male under 17, and two free white females. He and his family probably left NC early in the 19th century. They stayed briefly in Clinton Co., OH, but prior to 1871, most of the family moved on to Washington Co., IN. His grave at Honey Creek, Washington Co, IN, where he was thought to be the first permanent settler in 1809, is described as "about one mile from Hardinsburgh, a rough stone marker." As a scout in the Federal Army in the Revolution, it has been marked by the D.A.R. of New Albany, IN. DFA book.
