James Doutt    

JAMES DOUTT. A native of Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, born November 10, 1832, now a resident of Armstrong. James Doutt, thrown upon his own resources at the early age of fourteen years with no capital save industry, finds himself in the prime of his manhood enjoying a well earned independency. His first work was performed for Reynolds & Ritchie, furnace proprietors. He was engaged for five years in this county, and has since followed the furnace business until the year 1875. In April, 1854, he was married to Miss Hannah Shall, who was born in Armstrong county, May 18, 1835. Soon after their marriage this young couple removed to Ironton, Ohio, where they remained until 1870, when they went to Greenup county, Kentucky. When Mr. Doutt located in Ironton he had but $7 in cash, but securing employment at once in a furnace owned by a certain Robert Hamilton, he succeeded by hard work and frugality in acquiring and saving sufficient means to enable him to begin housekeeping. While in Ohio and Kentucky he accumulated by his labor so much more money than was necessary to support his family that he found himself able to purchase his mother’s estate from the heirs. He returned to Armstrong county in 1875 and settled upon this property— a farm of 137 acres of as good land and well improved as can be found in Cowanshannock township. Mr. Doutt is a republican in politics, a man of sterling character and a respected citizen.

The offspring of the marriage of James and Hannah (Shall) Doutt were eleven children, whose names, together with dates of birth are as follows: Lizzie J., born January 30, 1855; Daniel F., March 22, 1857; Martha Ann, September 13, 1861; James Albert, January 20, 1863; Tillie B., April 12, 1865; Maggie B., October 15, 1867; Emma V., March 26, 1869; Essie R., May 15, 1871; Addie M., December 30, 1873; Cora E., February 12, 1874; and Ettie L., October 10, 1876.
