Doggett Family Genealogy Forum
I think that early Dogget familes arrived in America along the Eastern seaboard. My husband's ancestors settled in Marshfield, Mass and other southeastern Mass. towns. One married Governor Thomas Mayhew's daughter on Martha's Vineyard, but his later descendent or descendents moved to Queens, Nova Scotia when the British made attractive offers of free land, help in settling, etc. Many British loyalist families stayed in N.S during the Revolution, while others rushed back to American towns.
In Perkins Diary of Queens Co. he keeps a rambling account of those new settlers' marriages, births, deaths, etc. in the mid 1700's. Lots of Doggets there, and it is rough tracing early birth records in churches, etc. LD
