Biographical Note

James M. Doughty was born in Wilson County, Tennessee, in 1832, the son of Lorenzo and Sarah Doughty. By 1860, he had gone ahead of the family to Arkansas. On October 26, 1861, he enlisted in Company K of the 14th (later the 21st) Arkansas Infantry. He served through the end of the war, including some time spent as a prisoner of war. He returned to his family in Tennessee after the war, where he married Mary Shannon. The entire family, including his parents, relocated to Izard County, Arkansas, about 1868.
