I’m sorry I took so long to respond but the answer is yes, our lines are related. Your GGGrandfather, Harrison Doshier was the son of John Doshier b. 1802 d. unknown and Rachel Spears/Pain b. 1802 and d. 1850. Their children were as follows:

Unknown female Doshier b. 1833
Margaret Doshier b. 1835
Joseph Doshier b. 1837
Elijah Doshier b. 1840
Elizabeth Doshier b. 1845

Your GGGGrandfather was Peter Doshier, b. November 2, 1762 in PA and d. August 6, 1838 in IL. Peter married Alley Prittchett (b. abt 1770 and d. after May 12, 1857) June 20, 1790 in TN. Their children were as follows:

John Doshier b. 1802 (father of Harrison Doshier on your line)

Peter Doshier’s father was Johann Daniel Doshier who was born December 1740 in Germany and died August 6, 1838. Johann immigrated into the United States entering Philadelphia in 1750.
