Disputed Parentage

Some Ancestry Member Trees claim that this John Daugherty was a son of William Dougherty of Monongalia County, Virginia. There does not appear to be enough of an age difference between the two for William to have been John's father. Also, John Daugherty is NOT listed in the estate records of William Dougherty, apparently making this claim unfounded. Additional research is necessary.

I, John Daughetee of Estill County and State of Kentucky, being in a weak and low state of health but of sound and disposing mind and memory, and calling to mind the mortality of my body and the certainly of death, do make and publish this my Last Will and Testament in manners and forms to the following:

Lastly, I will and bequeath to my sons, Isaac Daughetee, Thomas Daughetee, Joel Daughetee and to my daughter Sally Fisher, all my real estate with its appurtenances.
All the rest of my personal estate, goods and chattels debts, to be equally divided and distributed amongst them, their heirs and assigns for ever.
I hereby appoint my sons, Isaac Daughetee and William Daughetee, executors of this my Last Will and Testament, hereby revoking all other wills by me at any time heretofore made.
In testimony whereof I have here unto set my name and affixed my seal at my house on Cow Creek in Estill County, this 14th day of March in the year of our Lord, one thousand and eight hundred and twenty.
