About John Dooley

From Berniece Miller, June 2001:

John Dooley and Mary B. Dooley were the twins born in 1803 to Reuben Dooley and his first wife Leanne Railsback; their mother died in 1807. In 1811 Reuben took these children and moved to Preble County; so the twins would have been seven. I do not know whether Rachel took care of these two younger children or not; I know that some of the older ones went to live with other relatives in Preble County. Moses R. would have been big enough to have done some work so he may have lived in his father's house. Elizabeth T. lived with her Uncle Silas. Carie was the middle child. He died at age 19, and there just is no information about him. His name appears on the same tombstone as his father Reuben. Moses Dooley and Mary Boyd Dooley, Reuben Dooley and his son Carrie are all buried in Friendship Cemetery as are Silas and other Dooleys. I have photostats of pictures of both the old church and the school in Preble if you are interested.
