The Doans Of Bucks County


From An Introduction to the Loyalists of Bucks County and Some Queries Concerning Them:

"Excepting the Doans, the Tories or Loyalists have not been the subject of a separate study by the Bucks County [Pennsylvania] Historical Society."

"At another time, while searching for data on Loyalists in the reserved book room of the New York Library, one of the men in charge there observed the nature of my investigations and informed me that he was descended from a family of Doans. When I told him that the Doans of our county had been outlaws during
the Revolution, he took it good-naturedly and I suspect has redoubled his researches into his ancestry."

Here's a link to the Doane Family Association.
