    Biography

    • Thomas Daugherty, of Allentown, was born Dec. 20, 1836, at Beaver Meadow, then Northampton (now Carbon county), Pennsylvania. The founders of the family were the parents of William Daugherty, who settled in Bucks county, Pa.

      William Daugherty afterward removed to the West Branch of the Susquehanna river, locating a few miles above Milton, where he followed farming on Muddy Run. In connection with his son-in-law, Marcus Hulings, he built and operated the first keel-bottom boat ever taken on the Susquehanna river to tidewater. The boat was built at Muddy Run. Marcus Hulings was the great-great-grandfather of General W. J. Hulings, of Oil City, Pa., and who is prominently identified with the Pennsylvania National Guard, and is a member of the State Senate.

      William Daugherty fought for a time in the French and Indian war, and became a member of the Warrior Run Presbyterian church. He married a Miss Means, a representative of one of the pioneer families of Kentucky, and the Means house in Towanda, Pa., was founded by a representative of this family. Their sons were John, Samuel, James, Abel, Robert, and probably Henry. Of the daughters, one married Marcus Hulings, one William McGrady, and one John Campbell. The sons and the sons-in-law of William Daugherty were prominent in the early history of Pennsylvania, and made splendid records as patriots.
