Sad 2017!

James Dean Doggett passed away June 5, 2017

He leaves his beloved wife Margaret, two sons, Tim and Dan, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

He had plans bigger than one life could hold. Among all of his many interests this work was a unique passion.
We will maintain this website and, as may be practical, fix the broken bits and even add what we can to realize some of his dream.

Table of Contents
Data Pages

These pages are what this site is all about. We are trying to record all the descendants of the Rev. Benjamin Doggett that we can identify, with particular emphasis on those bearing the Doggett surname. Not every page may be posted at this time, but we are working on getting everthing back to where it was a few years ago, with the many updates that have been and are being made. We do not presently have an index or search engine available, but eventually hope to have one or both. If you aren't able to find what you are looking for, please E-mail me and I will try to point you in the right direction. I want to express my profound gratitude to the hundreds of Doggett researchers who have contributed to this work in progress. I try to give credit to everyone who has helped, but if I miss someone, please know that is not intentional. If we've been out of contact for a while, I would love to hear from you, and partcularly if your E-mail address has changed. If you are a new visitor to this site, we suggest that you read the Rev. Benjamin Doggett page. We believe that the information on this page is the most complete and accurate account of his life available at this time.

Doggett Genealogies
and Reviews

These pages identify the printed Doggett genealogies that I have seen and used, together with my comments about them. Unless otherwise stated, I have copies of all of the publications in my library. There are one or two new publications that I have not acquired, and when I do, I will add them to the section.

Not yet implemented

This is a new section just getting started. The pictures will be linked from the data pages, and probably will have a contents page as well. I welcome pictures, the older the better, especially studio portraits. If possible, I prefer to have them E-mailed to me in .jpeg format.

Not yet implemented

This too is a new section, which also will be linked from the data pages. Photographs of cemeteries, Doggett tombstones, and information as to the location of the cemeteries will be appreciated.

Not yet implemented

Everyone has run up against stonewalls in their research. This section will provide a place for listing these problem areas in the hope that someone, somewhere may have some information which will help solve one of these enigmas. I've started it off with a few issues which I know are of interest to many descendants, and look forward to hearing what you are trying to find.


Blogs are the latest fad on the Internet, so I thought a genealogy blog might be useful as part of my site. It's a place to tell about updates and changes in the site, and to pass on tidbits of information that I think might be useful or of interest.
