I have checked the microfilm of the original marriage record of David Douty & Sarah Getchell and it states David Douty of Falmouth and sarah Getchell of Brunswick were married March 14th 1741 by Samuell Moody town clerk. Some have they were married 1742, this is very clear and 1741 is even underlined.
From the Rev war pension record of Stephen Doughty and a statement by his son Elijah, Stephen had a brother Ichabad. He also had a brother Benjamin who married Sarah Douglas.

There is a proven descendant of Stephen Doughty who lives in NM and if he would do a DNA test many many descendants would know for sure the ancestry of Stephen Doughty. It is a story in his family that he is descendant of Thomas Doughty who was beheaded by Francis Drake. there were several articles on Drake published by "
The doughty Family Association" several years ago. Most libraries have copies. Eva
