Notes for Andrew Doig

      Andrew was the second son named Andrew, the first born in 1769 and died as an infant. Witnesses at Andrew's christening were James Wingate of Balloonton and John Henderson.  Andrew later gave his birth date as 29 Feb as 1776 was a leap year; this was probably as a joke where he only aged one year in four.

     

      Andrew arrived in Washington County, New York in the late 1790s.  He was a teacher and surveyor.  He married first Annis Wheeler in 1798.  In 1799 they lived in Salem, NY.  In 1800 they lived in Argyle, Washington Co., NY (page 482) with 1 male under 10, 3 males 16-26, and under 10; Andrew and Annis were 26-45.

     

      In 1801 Robert Doig (1773-1852)  arrived in New York from Thornhill, Perthshire.  Robert stayed at the home of Andrew and Annis, which was then two or three miles southwest of East Greenwich.

     

      Annis died in 1805, and the new father was left with two small children to raise.  The young Paul was left with a relative, James Shaw, who later adopted the boy.

     

      Andrew married second Polly Thompson in 1807. In 1809 Andrew, Polly and Andrew Wheeler moved to Lowville in the newly opened Lewis County, and there they raised their family.  In 1810 Andrew is listed in Lewis Co., page 116 (11010-00100-00). In 1820 (page 27) (100010-20110-0100); he lived between Seymour Murray and Edward Thompson. He appears in the 1825 NY State Census in Lowville. Andrew is listed in Lowville, Lewis Co. in the 1835 NY State Census. In 1840 he lived in Lowville (page 38) with his wife, one son, and one daughter. By 1850 the children had all moved out, and the value of Andrew's property was $2,000.00.

     

      Andrew became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. on 17 Sept 1828 in Lowville (File #A14).

 

Notes for Annis Wheeler

      In 1790 there were five Wheelers in Washington Co., NY: Thomas Wheeler (Hebron - 1/1/3 ); Ephraim Wheeler (Salem - 2/2/6); Edward Wheeler (Salem - 1/0/5); Samuel Wheeler (Westfield - 1/1/4); and William Wheeler (Westfield - 1/1/1). William and Samuel lived next to each other. [males 16+/males under 16/females]

     

      The link to father Ephraim is based on his having a daughter Annes and having lived and died in Washington Co., NY. Although this Annes was 9 years older than Andrew, there may not have been a lot choices for partners at that time.

 

Notes for Polly (Mary) Thompson

      The link to father is base on Edward Thompson living near Andrew Doig in Lowville, and the age of Edward and having a daughter her age in 1790 in Granby, CT. In 1850 census Polly is listed from Scotland. In 1860 Polly (71 CT) lived with her son John in Lowville. In 1880 her daughter Betsey reported her born in CT, and daughter Janette reported her born in VT.

Notes for Andrew Wheeler Doig

      Andrew's mother died in 1805.  His father remarried, and in 1809 they moved to Lowville, Lewis County, NY.

     

      In 1822 Andrew was appointed an ensign in the Light Infantry for Lewis County.

     

      Andrew became active in politics.  In 1825 he was the Town Clerk in Lowville, and from 1 Jan 1826 for two terms of 3 years each as the Lewis County Clerk.  In 1830 he lived in Martinsburg, NY and returned to Lowville by 1833.  In 1832 he was elected a member of the New York State Assembly, and was on the Judiciary Committee.  He was a Surrogate (probate) Judge from 28 Feb 1835 to 6 Feb 1840. He is listed in Lowville, Lewis Co. in the 1835 NY State Census. He was a Democrat and served from 4 Mar 1839 to 3 Mar 1843 as a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 26th and 27th Congresses.

     

      Andrew was also active in seeking his fortune.  In 1833-1834 he was a cashier at the Lewis County Bank.  In 1835 he lived in Lowville on 10 acres with 2 cows. On 27 Feb 1837 he was appointed one of the Directors of the Lewis County Mutual Insurance Company. In 1838 he was a founding director and vice-president of the Bank of Lowville. In 1840 Andrew, age 40-49, lived in Lowville (page 38) with his wife, 30-39, a son 5-9, a son 15-19, a daughter 0-4, and a daughter 5-9.

     

      When the lure of gold beckoned from California, he was likely associated with the newly formed Lewis County Mining Company in February of 1849.  The required money to fund the mining company was not raised because no prospective miner would sign to the articles that required honesty, temperance, Sabbath-keeping, and industry.  Andrew joined the about fifty miners who left Lewis County for the gold fields.  He is likely the miner listed in the 1850 Census as A. Doig at Negro Bar (Folsom), on the American River, Sacramento Co., CA.  He returned shortly, with no success, to Lowville. (see 1877 article below)

     

      In 1853 he moved with his son-in-law, E. George Morris, to Brooklyn, NY.  He worked as a clerk at the Custom House from 1853 until 1857.  He then returned to Lowville for a time. In 1860 he was a merchant residing in Lowville with his wife Elisabeth, children John, William, Mary, and Emma, and a domestic servant. In 1869 he was retired in Lowville with his unmarried daughters Mary and Emma, where he lived in 1870.

     

      New article about Assemblymen from Louis County, "Watertown Daily Times," 7 Nov 1872 - Andrew W. Doig of Lowville village, was elected in 1838 and 1840. Mr. Doig was one of the ealy settlers of Lewis County and County Clerk for many years; Member of Assembly and Surrogate for several terms. In 1833 he was cashier of the Lewis County Bank. Mr. Doig is still living, in good health at Lowville and highly esteemed.

He settled in Lowville in 1809, was county clerk of Lewis county for one term, in 1832 was member of assembly, in 1835 he was elected county surrogate, was elected to Congress in 1839 and 1841.

Notes for Frank Collins Doig

      Frank attended the local schools and Lowville Academy, of which he was later a loyal supporter and trustee.  After school he went to Utica where he worked as clerk in the drug store of Butler & Hamilton for four years and learned the business thoroughly.  In 1874 he purchased the interests of F. P. Kirley in the firm of Kirley & Pelton, druggists in Lowville, the business established by his father, John Doig.  The firm was renamed Doig and Pelton.  Frank's brother, Charles, later bought out the interests of Pelton and the firm was renamed F.C. & C.K. Doig, the largest and most prosperous drug business in the area.

     

      Frank later became active in the organization of the Asbestos Burial Casket Company.  He was active in the Masonic fraternity and became master of Lowville Lodge 134 in 1879.  He was high priest of Lowville Chapter 223, Royal Arch Masons.  From 1891 until his death he was a trustee of the lodge.  He was a charter member of the Lowville Club and first president from 1894 to 1899; he led the fund raising for their beautiful club house.  He was a member of the first board of Water Commissioners.  John was a prominent member and a liberal supporter of Trinity Church.

     

      In 1896 he was elected to the Executive Committee of the Lowville Academy.

     

      In the 1892 and 1905 NY State Census Frank was a druggist residing on Shady Avenue, Lowville with his wife Kate, daughters Julia and Maria (Moggy), and brother Charles (druggist).

     

      Of Frank it was written, "In business, in social life, in public affairs, he was distinguished by earnestness, enthusiasm and constant usefulness.  He was eminently charitable, giving quietly and freely to those whom he found in need, as well as to organizations for charity and benevolence.  Perhaps no man in the town was ever mourned by a greater number of friends of all classes of society.  His kindly manner, his sympathy and democracy made him one of the most approachable of men and bound to him a legion of intimate friends.  he never assumed the possession of superior virtue and was altogether unconscious, apparently, of the great good he wrought in the community.  His death was a great loss to the municipality, for the welfare and development of which he worked so sincerely and determinedly.  He loved his native town and missed no opportunity to contribute of his time and means to benefit the community."

     

      Frank slipped and fell on some ice on 13 Mar 1909 and suffered a broken hip and rupture of the liver.  He continued to hemorrhage and died 2 Apr 1909 in Lowville.  Because of the frozen ground he was not buried until 21 May 1909 in Lowville Rural Cemetery.

ALLEGED HORSE THIEF - Young Man of Denver Apprehended in This County.

     

      "One day last week Sheriff Frank Farnum met Sheriff Charles Gallagher of Arapahoe county at Wolcott and together the officers proceeded to the Burns country to arrest one Ed Doig, wanted by Sheriff Gallagher for horse stealing.

     

      "The officers found their man, a young fellow about 19 years of age, at the ranch of Charles Albertson, on Derby creek, in the northern part of the county. The arrest was made without trouble, but the officers had a rough trip from Wolcott, part of the way on foot and part on horseback over trails. Doig was arrested on Wednesday evening of last week [27 April 1904], and in attempting to get out of the country with their prisoner and reach the railroad in time to catch the east bound train at Wolcott next morning, they were overtaken by darkness and nearly lost their way. They were successful, however, and Sheriff Gallagher returned with his prisoner to Denver on Thursday.

     

      "It appears that about a year ago a team, wagon and outfit were stolen at Littleton and Doig and another young fellow by the name of Rollin Ray are alleged to be the thieves. On July 4th, last [1903], the premises of Sterner brothers in Egerin park were robbed of saddles, blankets, guns, etc. while the folks were at Yampa attending the celebration. On discovering their loss the Sterners took the trail and soon overhauled the thieves. Doig and Ray were the men and admitted the theft and offered to give up everything they possessed, the team, wagon and all, if their captors would not prosecute. This was agreed to and the young fellows disappeared.

     

      "Later the Sterners saw the outfit they had secured from Doig and Ray advertised and turned it over to the rightful owner. Very recently Sheriff Gallagher located Ray and arrested him. After three days' confinement in the Denver jail he disclosed the whereabouts of his pal and Doig's arrest followed as above related."

     

      On 5 May 1904 Edwin was sentenced to the Colorado State Reformatory at Buena Vista, Chaffee Co., CO (Inmate No. 1399, Volume 4). Prisoner's Story of Crime: "I stole two horses & wagon from a ranch near Lttleton, took them to Routt Co. and left them. Arrested in Eagle Co. & returned to Littleton. Plead guilty. Been in state always. Never arrested before." It was noted that Edwin had a partner in the theft. He was paroled on 14 Apr 1905.

     

      In 1910 Edwin F. Doig was a machinist in an automobile garage residing at 1130 Portland Place, Boulder, Boulder Co., CO (page 109B) with his wife Jennie and sons Albert and Frank.

      Denver Post, 7 Apr 1917 - DENVER WIRELESS STATIONS TO CLOSE ON FEDERAL ORDER - Government May Take Over and Operate One Radio Plant of Amageur Here - SECRET OUTFITS SOUGHT - United States Agents Trying to Trace Source of Mysterious Aerial Waves -

   Denver amateur wireless stations to the number of twenty-two were taken over today by the government as a part of the war program. It is understood at least one of the local radio plants will be operated under federal wireless men. This distinction probably will fall to the stationed owned and built by Edward F. Doig at 812 Suth Emerson street. Mr. Doig recently won a large silver cup for the best amateur radio plant in the United States. [The article continues with the governments plans to control the airwaves.]

     

      Edwin served at Ft. Collins, CO in the Signal Corps.  He taught wireless at the WMCA in Denver.  He was one of the first radio amateurs, and he had a room full of equipment on the second floor of their home and two tall towers.  Ed won a contest in 1916/7 by relaying a Morse code message from New York to Los Angeles.  Edwin was a member of the Elk's Club in Denver, and he played the trumpet, clarinet and violin in their band.

     

      Edwin moved with his family in the fall of 1918 to Los Angeles, CA.  He joined his brother, Art, in San Diego, CA in 1919.  The family lived at 2044 Columbia Street in San Diego in 1920; a niece, Helen M. Guy, who was born in 1905/6 in CO lived with them.  He was unable to find work and returned to Los Angeles later in 1920.  In 1930 he was a die maker residing at 624 106th Street, Los Angeles with his wife Jeannie, sons Albert and Frank, and father Edwin. In 1940 he lived at 1550 W. 70th Street, Los Angeles with Jeannie and son Albert. Ed opened the first Packard-Bell Radio dealership in Los Angeles, but he was a poor businessman.  He became a tool and die maker for 55 years, and was last employed by Eldon Industries.

     

      In retirement Ed began to compete as a rifle marksman, and he won many trophies.  He had a rifling machine in his garage, and made his own gun and stock and loaded his own ammunition.  When his back became too bad to shoot in the prone position, he sold his rifles.  He bought photography equipment, and became an expert.  His evenings were spent with western novels, and he read all the Zane Gray series.

Kraeger, 88, husband of Josephine (Jo), lifelong resident of Constableville and the longest standing member of the Lewis County Board of Legislators, passed away on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at SUNY Upstate Medical University following a brief illness.

While in high school Irv was a member of the baseball team, a sport in which he excelled. Irv then went on to further his education, when he attended SUNY Cortland in the Athletic Education and Coaching Program. Irv then returned home to assist his father in the operation of the family farm. On October 23, 1948, Irv was united in marriage with Josephine Benedict at St. Mary's Church, Glenfield. Following their marriage they resided in the family farmhouse until 1956 when they built their present home on the farm. In 1948, Irv took over the operation of the family dairy farm, as well as the maple syrup production. Irv will be forever remembered for the service he has given to the communities of Lewis County. He began his political career on January 1, 1952 as the Representative for the Town of West Turin on the Lewis County Board of Supervisors. This position he held for 48 consecutive years; never missing a regular Board Meeting. The Board eventually transitioned into what we now know as the Lewis County Board of Legislators.

Irv also received in 2008, a Certificate of Distinction in honor of his 55 years of public service to the people of Lewis County. Irv very much enjoyed hunting and fishing and being outdoors. If you couldn't find him in his garden or pumpkin patch, he was probably watching NY Yankee Baseball. Irv's family was by far the most important aspect of his life, and he found great joy in watching his grandchildren's athletic events.

Deceased Name: Anne and Charlie Keenan

A memorial mass will be held tomorrow in Menlo Park for Anne and Charlie Keenan, prominent California developers and growers, who were married for 52 years and died in the San Joaquin Valley within two days of each other.

     

      Mr. Keenan, who died on Saturday, was 80; Mrs. Keenan died on Monday at age 78. They died after a sudden illness.

     

      Charlie Keenan was a second generation San Franciscan, born in 1916 into a home-builder family descended from the original Italian-Swiss Colony in Asti. He attended St. Ignatius High School and graduated from the University of San Francisco at the age of 19.

     

      Multiple and widely varied careers followed. His first vocation was as an actor in New York, where leading-man looks and a deep baritone voice helped him land an early role opposite Kitty Carlisle on Broadway.

     

      During World War II, Mr. Keenan was an artillery training officer at Camp Roberts. He married Southern California-born Anne Mitchell in 1943 and they moved to Palo Alto after the war.

     

      After several businesses, including an ornamental horticulture nursery and a Kaiser-Frazer auto dealership, he started a real estate career on the Peninsula with Fox & Carskadon. This was interrupted when he was recalled to duty in the Korean War.

     

      In 1952 he began a 25-year partnership with Pat Carey at Cornish & Carey Real Estate in Palo Alto. In addition to building a successful real estate brokerage business, he co-developed the Westridge Community in Portola Valley and one of the original research and development parks located at the corner of Bayshore Highway and San Antonio Road, where Philco/Ford and Tektronix were the early anchor tenants.

     

      While working and raising a family in Palo Alto, Mr. Keenan was also active in community affairs. He served as president of the Palo Alto Real Estate Board, the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce, the Irwin Memorial Blood Bank and the Menlo Circus Club, and was a member of the Palo Alto Club and the St. Claire Club in San Jose.

     

      The past 20 years were spent in the San Joaquin Valley community of Avenal where Mr. Keenan and his son, Bob, founded Keenan Farms, a grower and processor of pistachio nuts. Mr. and Mrs. Keenan spent the past two decades traveling the world selling pistachios from Keenan Farms.

     

      Mrs. Keenan was born Anne Mitchell in 1916 in Los Angeles. She graduated from Marlborough School in 1935 and attended the University of California at Los Angeles. Prior to World War II she moved to San Francisco, where she started as a teller with the American Bank & Trust Co. In 1943, she met Mr. Keenan and they were wed that December at Camp Roberts. At the end of the war they moved to Palo Alto, where they lived for the next 30 years.

     

      Mrs. Keenan was active in volunteer work, including the Veteran's Hospital, and spent more than 30 years in the service of the Palo Alto Junior League. An accomplished artist, she was also an expert gardener, interior designer and procurer of period piece furniture.

     

      Mr. Keenan predeceased his wife of 52 years by two days. The couple are survived by son Charles J. (Chop) Keenan and daughter-in- law Annette Keenan of Woodside, son Bob and daughter-in-law Theresa Keenan of Marin County, and four grandchildren: Carrie Flynn, Charles J. (Jamie) Keenan IV of Marin County, Ann-Marie Keenan and Elizabeth Keenan.

     

      A memorial mass will be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Nativity Church, 210 Oak Grove Ave., Menlo Park. The family prefers that donations be made to a favorite charity.
