Online death certificate for Allynese Dokey
Posted by: Tim White (ID *****3309) Date: November 17, 2009 at 10:05:32

Located a death record for Allynese Dokey, online, at

In the "Seek" section type in "dokey".

The 4th. record listed is for a "Lcncase Dokey", December 30, 1903.

Allynese is a name that has been misspelled and mistyped many times I am sure.
I am using this spelling of her name because I have seen it used more often than the other spellings I have seen.

Here's my theory! Phoenetically it soundslike ELLY-NEASE or ALLY-NEASE or something along those lines. If you heard

If it was spoken aloud and you wrote it down on paper, you might write it as LENEASE (L EN EASE). When I look at the copy of the record it looks like that, "Lenease".

When they transcribed the record it became Lcncase (Dokey). The first and second "e"'s were read as "c"'s. The
written word "Lenease" was transcribed as "Lcncase".

It says she was a widow. So Abraham died first.
It says she died December 30th, 1903 and that she was 69 years, 7 months and 28 days old when she died.
That places her date of birth as May 2nd, 1834. Her birthplace is listed as Canada.

The informant listed on the record is my great-grandfather, Edward Dokey, of Grand Junction, Michigan. Allynese was
his mother. Abraham Dokey was his father.

It states that she was buried in the Lee Cemetery (Michigan) on January 2nd, 1904.

I suspected that Abraham and Allynese were buried in the Lee Cemetery and this would seem to back that up. I did see
Abraham's name on a listing of burials in the Lee cemetery, but have nothing to prove it. I do have photos of two
weathered grave markers next to David Dokey's marker that are probably Abraham and Allynese's.

There is more information on the death certificate but I just wanted to let anybody who was interested know that it
was out there. I thought the spelling problems might make it difficult to find.

The record does indicate that she had 10 children, 8 of whom were still living.

In fact, one of the records that appear in this search are for an infant whose parent's are listed as Abraham and
Allynese. I think she had 11 children and will elaborate on that in another posting.

Also notice that many of the records that come up in the search are Dokey's from the Lee/Grand Junction area and are
related to many of us posting here.
