McDOUGAL or McDUGAL, COE, WELLER - I am researching a John McDOUGAL or McDUGAL who lived in Connecticut in the very late 1700's and moved from there around 1810 to the Town of Veteran, Chemung County, New York. He was originally from New York City, but his mother put him out, when he was still young, to a drover after his father died. His father was a bookbinder in New York City and was burried in a cemetery near St. Peter's Church in New York City. John married a Sarah COE or WELLER, possibly in Connecticut. They had several young children before they left. David McDOUGAL b 9/10/1807 was very young when they left. His twin brother and sister, Harry and Harriet may have also been born in Connecticut also. Other siblings were born, but likely after they left. There have been family beliefs that John and Sarah may have lived also in the New York Counties near New York City. John was known to have been a travelling preacher in Chemung County and possibly in Connecticut also. I do have much more that I would like to share with anyone that may be related.
