I have now had my dna analyzed, and I am a direct descendant of King Niall Niagolliach {Niall of the Nine Hostages}, high king of Ireland. Three of his descendants were kings of western parts of Scotland leading to King Kenneth Alpin over the generations. Clan Gregor is, of course, descended from Kenneth Alpin's Grandson Gregor, so our DOCHARTYs are, of course, I assume descended through that line somewhere.
My GPa was adamant that we had nothing to do with the Irish DOHERTYs, but, it turns out that they are also descended from Niall, so I guess we have some connection, but, I figure our family must have been in Scotland from about the 400s-600s since the family figured no connection to Ireland.
