I will try my best since I recently started my search ..
My g.g.grandpa Sylvanus Doty
had a son named Alvin Doty Sept 31 1895 - Sept 13 1962
Born in Saginaw Mich .
Then my g.g.g grandpa Lucius Doty also had a son named Alvin Doty & I can not find his information because I only do the free search . All tho I have found 3 generations of my Doty's in New York in the 1800's .
