My grandfather Patrick Doherty/Dougherty/O'Doherty had a sister named Margret(aka) who married a Patrick McCarthy. Margaret was born 1890's. I don't know too much ... but Margaret and Partick MCCarthy married in NY- and are buried in Gate of Heaven Cemetery -Valhalla NY.. i too am looking for name links to build my family tree. It this doesn't help- also check the message boards- DOUGHERTY-DAUGHERTY-DOHERTY.

Good luck. I'm hoping somewhere our tree meets..... Katie
