Robert Stewart Dooley is my great gfather. I was interested to see the family group listed here, as I had no information about his siblings or ancestors. Robert married Josephine Clark in 1869 and had the following children:
Lucy Dooley married Willy McKenzie Rushing
Re: MS Dooleys correction
Ella and Ida are Robert's children, not Lucy's.
Hi My husbands mother is a Dooley. They are from Mississippi
I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I could not work on family trees several yrs; trying to pick up & compare my old posts & put out my new email.
I worked on Dooleys again not too long ago. Went to TX & met several cousins.

I have been seeking Elijah James Dooley born 1840 in Alabama later moving to Mississippi marrying Emily R McNeely of MS. All of his children were born in DeSoto, DeKalb or Marshall counties. When searching I found a lot of information on your MS Dooleys in Ancestry.com. You should be able to find a lot of information in their archives for this family. You might double check, an Elijah born 1831 from Georgie moved to MS. If I am not mistaken his wife was Lucy Stewart. Contact member Kermit Dooley as this is his line. If you can't find his membership (kedooley I think) let me know as I have him saved to favorites. If you run across my Elijah in your research would you let me know please? Good luck to you.
