John Allen Dougherty, son of John Kerr Dougherty, was a U.S. Naval Captain. He graduated Annapolis in 1875. He served with the European squadron three years, in the Mediterranean Sea, on the flagship "Trenton" which was wrecked later during a hurricane on Somoa. He was next stationed on the old "Jamestown" and then on the old "Kearsage" which was sunk in southern waters. For three and a half years he was assistant to Commander Ramsey at Washington in the Bureau of Navigation and was at the War College and Torpedo Station for three years. He was next assigned to the torpedo boat "Cushing", the first of its kind built by this country. Later he served on the Cruiser "Columbia". He directed boats which guarded the Spanish Warship "Vicaya" in the New York Harbor in 1898.
