It appears that the majority of Daughetys in the US are in NC, and Kenston has the largest population.
My last known-for-sure ancestor was William J. (James, probably) Daughety, A Primitive Baptist Minister born about 1810, reportedly in North Carolina.
So far, I can't confirm family oral history and it appears that at least one Daughety was in the US prior to the Revolutionary War. Then, names appear in Virginia and North Carolina. At the time of the civil war, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama had Daughetys in the war.
Does anyone have reliable Daughety history fron around 1750?
