Descendants of Mary Elizabeth "Betsey" MCNETT DOLE

Betsey was another of the McNitts and McNetts from Cayuga County, New York.  In Cayuga County she and her family lived in close proximity to Elijah McNitt, possibly her cousin.  Elijah died when his children were still fairly young and Betsey's husband Thomas Dole was named as their guardian.  The Doles moved from Cayuga County to Thompson Township, Seneca County, Ohio in 1834, less than a year after the arrival of Elijah's son Sidney McNitt.  Within just a few years they moved on to Branch County, Michigan, appearing in the 1840 census living next to James W. McNitt, another Cayuga County McNitt who had lived for a few years in Seneca County, Ohio.
