The Daughters of

Ephraim Theodore Doutt and Emeline Butler

This is a great picture, and one that I had not seen before. They are the daughters of Ephraim Theodore Doutt and Emeline Butler. I don't have a date for the picture. However, since they are all dressed in black, it may have been taken at a funeral. Their sister Laura Frances Doutt Benton died 12 July 1899, so that is possibly the date. Their mother passed away 2 December 1911, so that is another possibility. To refresh our minds, I am including the data about the family of Ephraim Theodore Doutt and Emeline Butler, on the next page.

I am including photos of some of Ephraim and Emeline's children. I probably have printed some of them earlier, but I like to collect info and pictures together.

Census Records for this family

The records on the following page should help you to follow this family at a given time and place.

I had a great deal of fun doing this research. Of course spelling is difficult, at best, in the census, so if you are looking for "Doutt", you should search for Doutt, Dout, Daut, Dowt, and probably others too numerous to mention. Although I have always thought that most of people with the surname spelled Doutt are probably our family, I need to revise that opinion. It looks like several families immigrated in the latter half of the 1800's, and it is unlikely they connect with ours.

Several people have asked about black Doutts. There is certainly a black branch of our family. Ruth Doutt Ingertson said that she believed that James M. Doutt had slaves when he lived in Kentucky, who came back to Pennsylvania with him when he returned home. However, as soon as he returned to PA, he gave the slaves their freedom. I have hoped that we might discover some of the black families, but so far that hasn't happened.

Also, when I searched for "Dout", to my surprise I found several Native Americans named Dout, on the various reservations. I didn't do any further research on these families, but enjoyed finding people named Fern Spotted Bear Dout Walk and Sarah Knife Dout Mix, in the Lodge Grass and Crow Indian Reservation in Big Horn, Montana. Please know that I am not making fun of these names, but find them extremely interesting.

There were families of Doutts in Illinois and Missouri that I did not know existed. I wish I had made note of them as I went along. However, I would think if I found them once, I could probably find them again.

On the following pages I have listed where the family of Ephraim Theodore Doutt and Emaline Butler lived in the census years. Although they didn't roam far, they certainly did spread out in various counties.

I have included census records. As before, the Key for these records is:

1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 Census

Names, Sex, Age, Where Born

1900, 1910, 1920 & 1930 Census

Name, Sex, Age, Marital Status

(Number after M (married) indicates the number of years married.

However in the 1930 Census, the number after M tells the age at which married.)

Where were they in the census?

The Genealogist's Psalm

Genealogy is my past time, I shall not stray.

It maketh me to lie down and examine half buried tombstones; it leadeth me into still court houses.

It restoreth my ancestral knowledge, It leadeth me into paths of census records and ship's passenger lists for my surnames' sake.

Yes, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries and microfilm readers, I shall fear no discouragement; For my strong urge is within me; the curiosity and motivation they comfort me.

It demandeth preparation of storage space for the acquisition of countless documents. It anointest my head with burning midnight oil, my family group sheets runneth over.

Surely births, marriage and death dates shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of a family-history seeker forever.

Samuel L. McKinney

William E. Doutt

Samuel L. McKinney, age 61 yrs. old of Birdville PA, died in Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA., Friday July 21 1916 at 3:30 pm, after an illness of ten weeks. Funeral services were held at the home of his son Herman, Birdvlle, Sabbath. Interment took place Monday in Petrolia, PA. Mr. McKinney leaves his wife and eight children as follows: Mrs. W. H. Trout, Willoughby, Ohio; Mrs. Frank Watt, Birdville; Mrs. Joseph Rudish, Blairsville; George, of Sharon; Herman, of Birdville; Earl, of Tarentum; Marie, of Natrona and Marion, at home.

He lived in Birdville for about 3 yrs. He was married to Miss Sarah M. Doutt, Oct. 23, 1877. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of this place. Deceased was a half brother of Mrs. Jacob Leeger.

W. E. Doutt, 83, of 502 Emerson St., Vandergrift, a Spanish-American War veteran, died yesterday (June 10, 1962) at 12:20 am.

He died in the Veterans Administration Hospital in Oakland, Pittsburgh, where he was a patient two weeks. He had been in failing health for some time.

Mr. Doutt served in Puerto Rico during the war of 1898 with the Spanish. There is only one other veteran of this war surviving in the borough of Vandergrift.

However, Mr. Doutt is the last veteran who has had long residence in Vandergrift.

Born in Smithland, Clarion County, [PA], on Sept. 24, 1879, he was a son of Theodore and Emeline Butler Doutt.

He came to Vandergrift in January of 1900 to work in the local plant of the old American Sheet and Tinplate Co., now U. S. Steel Corp. He worked in the plant until retirement in 1952.

His wife, Elizabeth, died in December 1952.

Mr. Doutt was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Vandergrift, and the Sunday school of the church, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 566, Vandergrift; and the Veteran Steelworkers organization, Vandergrift.

Happy 80th Birthday

Paul Oden celebrated his 80th birthday on June 8, 2007. His mother was a Doutt, and his father was Dominick Zanotti, and he was named Harry Robert Zanotti. He was sent to a foster home, and while there, his name was changed to Paul Eugene Odin. Somewhere along the way, his surname changed to Oden. According to his birth certificate, Paul's mother was Florence Mabel Doutt.

He has made contact with William Shriver Jr., who is a cousin, and was delighted when Bill attended his birthday party, as shown in the picture in the next column.

My thanks to Debbie Oden, Paul's daughter-in-law, for keeping me informed, and sending the photos.

Re: Paul Oden alias

Harry Robert Zanotti

Dear Sir:

At Mr. Oden's request we are writing to you regarding the matter of his birth certificate. According to our records Paul Oden was born under the name of Harry Robert Zanotti at 502 Emerson Avenue in Vandergrift on June 8, 1927. Dr. John A. Boales was the attending physician. Shortly after birth he was removed from the care and custody of his mother and placed in a boarding home. While at this home the foster parents insisted upon changing his name to Paul Oden. He was entered in the public schools under this name and graduated from Youngwood High School in June of 1945. He also obtained employment at a local plant under the same name.

Paul has been placed in several foster homes but has always retained the name which was given to him by his original foster parents, i.e. Paul Oden.

We have always found Paul to be a very good worker and had received only good reports regarding his attitude and ability. We would greatly appreciate any consideration which you can give this young man. I believe he is honest and sincere in his statement regarding his name and is not in any way attempting to falsify his true identification. He has simply been the unfortunate victim of foster parents attempting to simplify and change his name.

Yours very truly,

Westmoreland County Children's Bureau

Papers of Edward J. Doutt

Sharlot Hall Museum Archives

Re-processed by Anne Foster, Oct. 1997


The papers of Edward J. Doutt span the years 1898 to 1929, although the bulk of the material dates from 1898 to 1902. The collection consists of military and pension records, biographical notes, and artifacts of Edward J. Doutt. Most of the material relates to Doutt's service in Company E, 14th Pennsylvania Volunteers (later Infantry), National Guard of Pennsylvania, from 1898 to 1902. Topics include the Spanish-American War (1898), the Philippines Insurrection (1899-1901), and the National Guard of Pennsylvania.

The material is divided into two series:

Series I: [Personal Papers, 1898-1929 and undated]

Series II: [Artifacts, 1898 and undated]


The papers of Edward J. Doutt were donated to the Sharlot Hall Museum by Rose and James F. Doutt in 1978.


Edward James Doutt was born July 12, 1879 in East Brady, Pennsylavania. At the time of his enlistment for the Spanish-American War, he gave his occupation as fireman. Enlisting on April 27, 1898, Doutt served with Company E, 14th Pennsylvania Volunteers (later Infantry), of the National Guard of Pennsylvania. Although discharged on October 17, 1898, he reenlisted, was promoted to the rank of corporal, and served until December 6, 1902. Edith B. McNickel of Lectonia, Ohio and Edward J. Doutt were married on June 18, 1903 in Allegheny (now Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania. At least one son, James F., was born to the couple. Edward J. Doutt died June 6, 1937 and is buried in Mt. Royal Cemetery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


Series I: [Personal Papers. 1898-1929 and undated! (13 items)

This series contains military records, pension certificates, correspondence, and biographical notes. The materials document the military career of Edward J. Doutt including his enlistment, furloughs, promotion, discharge, and pension entitlement. There are also several notes containing biographical data and a letter from Harry R. Bain of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the Secretary of War. These items are arranged chronologically.

Series II: [Artifacts. 1898 and undated] (36 items)

Included in this series are uniforms, other clothing, pins, flags, and other artifacts

relating to Doutt's military career. These items are housed in the Collections Department of the Sharlot Hall Museum.


Originally, there was no apparent order to the materials. The materials were reunited and rearranged chronologically. Within the folders, newsprint was photocopied onto acid-free paper, and plastic clips replaced metal fasteners. The collection has been placed in acid-free folders and boxes.


The Sharlot Hall Museum houses a number of collections related to the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippines Insurrection (1899-1901), including the personal papers of others who served.

DeVore Home Scene of Armistice Day Tragedy.

Parents Sure Shells Taken from Weapon

A "Hunting" game played by two brothers in the parlor of their Tunnelton home resulted in tragedy yesterday morning when eight-year-old Robert Eugene DeVore was accidentaly shot and killed by a shot-gun blast fired by William Richard DeVore, aged ten.

The grief-stricken parents, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene M. DeVore, heard the shot and found the youngest of the two children lying beside the radio. Coroner Edward L. Fleming, M. D., said that the child had probably died instantly of shock and severe hemmorrhages. He had been struck in the abdomen.

The two brothers had been playing with one of their little pet rabbits. Billy told Coroner Fleming when they decided to pretend they were hunters. In spite of his parents' warning about touching firearms, he had picked up the shotgun, which was resting in one corner of the room, and had aimed it at a small China duck resting on the radio.

Little Bobby was standing directly in front of the radio while his brother took aim. " I slipped and the safety off just so I could hear the click of the trigger," Billy related, "and the next thing I knew there was a loud noise. I didn't think the gun was loaded."

The Coroner, upon arrival, tested the gun, a 12 -gauge Remington improved cylinder shot-gun, and ejected two other loaded shells as well as the one that had been fired from the magazine.

The father said that he had been positive that he had removed all the shells fromt he gun after hunting Monday afternoon, while Mrs. DeVore was equally positive that he had done so. The question of how the shells happened to be in the gun still remains a mystery, according to Dr. Fleming who, however, expressed an opinion that in all probability the child had reloaded the gun while he was playing.

Mother of the boys and a neighbor, Mrs. Alfred Johnson, were conversing in the kitchen at the time of the shooting. When Mrs. DeVore dashed into the room she saw her youngest son lying on the floor in a pool of blood. A Saltsburg physician pronounced the child dead.

Funeral services will be conducted at the home of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Doutt, 502 Emerson Street in Vandergrift on Friday at 2:00 p.m. Friends will be received at the Doutt home after 6:00 this evening. Interment will be in Vandergrift Cemetery.

Apple files for Magsafe patent

On March 29, the US Patent & Trademark Office published two of Apple's patent applications relating to their notebook feature known as Magsafe.

Apple's webpage information on Magsafe states: The MacBook Pro power adapter with MagSafe connector is just that: a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So, if you happen to trip over a power cord, you won't send MacBook Pro flying off a table or desk: The cord simply disconnects, without damage to either the cord or the system.

Apple lists the inventors of both of these patent as being: John C. DiFonzo, Bartley K. Andre, Kayne Lim, Matthew Dean Rohrback, Mark Edward Doutt and Jean-Marc Gery.

Congratulations to Mark Edward Doutt for this accomplishment.

Gregory Smith, son of Dean and Sandy Smith of Rolla, Missouri, graduated 13 July 2007, earning a first, in a master's degree in Chemistry with Industrial Experience. His degree was earned from Bristol University in Bristol, England. Greg is also your Editor's grandson.

While attending the graduation ceremonies, his family enjoyed a month tour of England, Scotland, and France. Dean brought home 1217 pictures on his digital camera, and I couldn't decide which one to include here. I finally decided to include the pub in

Scotland where J. K. Rowling penned the beginning stories of Harry Potter. According to the story, she was a single mother with little money, and she wrote the initial drafts of the story on restaurant napkins.

The story about J. K. Rowling seems a bit strange to me, because who can write on napkins? But maybe she wrote a rough draft on them. Anyway, that is the story.

I Need Your Help

Apparently I have lost most of my sources of obituaries. I keyed into the Social Security Death Index and found many Doutt deaths that I do not have obituaries for. Sadly, many of them are people whom I know, perhaps not having actually met them, but I have talked to several on the phone and corresponded with others, by e-mail or letter.

If anyone can send me a copy of an obituary for any of them, I would be very grateful.
