I have been searching in the Doherty line for the origins of my father-in-law for 40+yrs. He passed away Jan. 1, 1994,a former orphan, taken in by the Doherty family of Bouctouche, N.B., Canada, and died WWII Vet, RCAF Flight Sgt./Warrant Officer, leaving behind 3 boys, 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. We do not have a clue who he is still. My husband is now on his last months of being among us due to bone cancer. The adoptive family was David W. Doherty, brother of Milton, Joseph, Isaac,and sisters...One of them went to California to live, Isaac I think. One went to Vancouver. Would you perhaps be related to that bunch of Doherty's?
