My great-grandfather, George Washington Doty,
son of Joseph and Sarah True Doty, had five siblings:
Emeline, born 1840, died 1903
Sarah, born 1842
William True, born 1845
Charles, born 1846
George Washington, born 1848, died 1910
Helen Maria, born 1850
George Washington Doty and his sister, Sarah Doty McIntire
This photo was probably taken between January 1908 when Sarah's husband died and March 1910 when George died. I believe it was taken at the Doty homestead.
In the 1885 El Dorado City Directory, W. H. McIntire was listed in partnership with a Mr. Marshall as a coal, feed and flour dealer with their business located on Main Street.
By the 1910 census, Sarah was still in El Dorado, and her daughter, Mary and husband, Milo and their two daughters, Margaret, 7, and Henrietta, 2, had moved in with her. Sarah was 67 and a widow, of course. Interestingly, the census indicated that this was a second marriage for Mary. Apparently, the first marriage was at quite a young age because both Milo and Mary reported they were first married at 17. Mary had two children survive of four.
Sarah and Henry's youngest daughter, Sarah Ethel, known as Ethel, lived until 1933. She had one son, W. H., probably named after her father, William Henry, but several other children had died in their youth. Her obituary appeared in the El Dorado Times, Monday, April 3, 1933:
Word has been received of the death Saturday in Bonita Springs, Florida, of Mrs. Ethel McIntire Davis, a resident of El Dorado for the past five years. She was 53 years old and had been in ill health for two years.
With her son, W. H. Davis, also of El Dorado, Mrs. Davis went to Florida six months ago for her health and (has) been traveling over the country since that time.
She had resided in El Dorado for a number of years previous to 1901, but from that time until five years ago had lived in Florence, Sapulpa, Okla. and Wichita. She was a member of the Methodist church here.
Surviving besides her son are two cousins, Mrs. Karl Geddes and I. H. McIntire, both of El Dorado. Two other children are deceased. The body is being brought back to El Dorado and funeral arrangements will be announced later..."
