Dooly, son of Moses and Tabitha Dooly, was born in Preble Co., Ohio October 18, 1824 and ten minutes of eight o'clock Sunday morning April 13, 1902, at his home he sank peacefully into the "sleep that knows no waking." In Boston, Ind., March 3, 1850, he was united in marriage to Mary Moore who shared with him the toils, sacrifices, and enjoyments of a long life until April 6, 1884, when the dread hand of death entered his home and took from him the companion of his youth. This union was blessed with six children, three sons, and three daughters. One son and one daughter proceeded him to the glory land. Two sons Robert and Virgil Dooly and two daughters Sarah J. Emerick and Henrietta Ratcliff are left to mourn their irreparable loss of a Father. Early in life he united with the Newlight church, and lived in its fellowship until transferred to the church triumphant having found in Christ the peace which flows as a river, his life was a beautiful example of the truth that "contentment with godliness is great gain," he bore the infirmities of old age and the sufferings of disease without a murmur or complaint. In his dealings with his fellow men he was honest, upright, courteous, generous, and accommodating. He was quiet and unassuming in his disposition, earnest and faithful in the performance of his duties. He was a noble citizen a man of but few words, but of sound judgment, a man of brilliant mind, and a safe counselor, he has lived in this vicinity for several years, and all who knew him, knew as to his moral worth, his integrity and Christian character, he has lived to a ripe old age, but his life has not been lived in vain, he has left an influence, that will yield good fruit, for many years to come, the memory of such a life is certainly a precious legacy to the stricken family. Two sons, two daughters, 21 grand children, 2 great grand children, 3 brothers, 1 sister and a host of friends who are left to mourn his loss.

             "Ah, rest thee now, for rest is sweet,
             To weary hands and wayworn feet.
             Gods hand is laid above the heart,
             And softly all its cares departs.
             God looks upon thee with his smile.
             God gives, who knoweth what is best,
             Thy tired body easeful rest.
             No trouble mars thy placid brow,
             Nor any pain, Ah, rest thee now.

            In 1859 he moved from Boston, Ind. to Pleasant township Grant Co., Ind., and settled on the farm on which he died, death had no terrors for him he had made all arrangements for his funeral, speaking to Rev. W. Gossett to preach his funeral sermon, selecting the text for the occasion, which was the 18th verse of the 14 chapter of Rev.
