William Oliver Doughty 1835-1915 Hempstead,Ny

I have been looking for years for info on his parents ..I have all census and his wife and children just looking for parents info..............
On his death Certificate it listed the following info
William Oliver Doughty
born :June 6 1835 New York
died :Oct 26 1915 Hempstead Ny
father : William Doughty born abt 1800/10 in New York
mother : Eliza Combs born abt 1800/10 in New York

I don't know if this info is correct cause the inforant was done by Edwin C.Pettit and he was the undertaker,yes he could have known him and his family but upon doing Edwin Pettit family there are not related at all .....

I found William in the 1860 at the age of 25 with his wife Catherine living with a Elizabeth Raynor 70 yrs which could be his mom Eliza Combs which would match with the time frame and this Elizabeth Raynor was married to a Willet Raynor and she was his second marriage...........

Some relatives gave his fathers death as Nov 18 1885 but this is wrong cause this William was married to a Mary Ann Abrams.....................

Thank You
