Shame the family don't defend his memory then and set the record straight.

During the Cold War, the ROTC trained both future Military Intelligence Officers and Army Security Agency officers. A notable example is Ed Lansdale.  

It also trained infantry officers, supply officers and staff officers, most US Army officers get their commissions through a college Reserve Officer Training Corps.
That's not even what's going on at Sunset High School, high schools have Junior ROTC programs but the "officer" part here is a misnomer, its a recruiting tool where retired officers teach in local high schools and encourage the boys (and these days girls) to enlist in the service.  Participation in the program does not lead to an Army commission but allows JROTC "veterans" who go into the service to finish basic training at a slightly higher rank (PFC, say, instead of private)  than the other recruits. Here's a website of a random high school JROTC program.
http://www.ops.org/high/south/academics/jrotc/tabid/115/default.aspx

The different spelling on the 1940 Census I think has a  simple explanation.  If you don't mail in your Census form (which in 1940 would likely be due to illiteracy), a Census worker will knock on your door to interview you. The incorrect spelling could simply be due to a Census worker hearing Redfern wrong as he filled out the form on the front porch.

This was one of the cites I was relying on


I take your point about this being a junior program - yet I have found info in the past on ROTC members of around 14 and 15 being recruited back in the early '60s into spying on certain types of groups... on behalf of... who knows?  I came across it while researching the identity of Shasteen's barbershop kid...

I can believe it, off topic a bit, criminal gangs recruited kids that young because in the 1960s at least a teenager could literally get away with murder (the juvenile delinquency laws were such that he could only be held in custody a few years), while nowadays the general idea is if you're old enough to do the crime you're old enough to do the time.
Same principle, have a kid do some illegal spy work, 1. no one would believe that's what they're up to, so 2. If they're caught, they're just a juvenile delinquent who only faces a stern talking-to.

Thanks to Tom for contacting Jack's nephew. Interesting the family is aware of his notoriety on the internet in JFK circles. Not many of the general public or even those who watched/read mainstream JFK related material would be even aware of his existence or his own testimony placed him in the direct path of a fleeing Oswald about 30 seconds after the shots.

I imagine Tom's wasn't the first researcher phone call the family has received and I wouldn't be surprised if Jack has been outright accused of conspiracy to murder or even being the shooter in some of those calls (some people never learn you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar).  Any family member of a witness should be approached with the angle of attack that there's a lot of false rumors on the internet about their kin and their story deserves to be told straight to dispel unjust rumors.

For example, the fact there is no picture of Jack in the Warren Commission has made some people suspicious about him for no other reason than nobody knows what he looks like.  Providing family photos of Jack would clear that up immediately. If they don't want to donate family photos to the 6th Floor Museum, they can have them scanned at Fedex Kinko's and then email them.

Also, there's some question whether Jack had mental or perhaps hearing problems because in his testimony, he seems to answer Warren Commission questions as if he misunderstood the words in the questions. 
Unfortunately, some people have interpreted these answers as someone trying to deceive the Commission because they're ignorant of any health or intellectual challenges Jack may have faced. Ay information the family can provide on that would help Jack in being treated more fairly among researchers. 

Honey, brothers, not vinegar.

There are two sets of Dougherty nieces and nephews. I avoided the set that lost a borther and grew up away from Dallas.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fAbu22qhm-M/Um4RX4jVuUI/AAAAAAAABeQ/aMdmSs9pHuI/s971/DoughertyPrema.jpg

I also avoided them because their name is Dougherty and I wanted to telephone a niece or nephew who may never have been contacted. I did not want to get an , "oh, another one calling.....can't you people leave us alone?" Once I called back I was not lectured about calling or asked not to call again. I picked people who were most likely to be close to Jack, growing up, if he had that capacity and opportunity to develop relationships with his siblings' children. I picked a branch of the family most likely to have several pictures of Jack to chose from, people who inherited his and his mother's estates, the items you keep when you are a local relative cleaning out the home of the deceased. When they visited grandma, Jack was there.

I am going to seek out a sibling of the nephew I called who I think was most likely closest to Jack, of I did not contact that person already. I have five in total to learn more about.

Truly:  And he seemed to be intelligent and smart and a hard worker. The main thing is he just worked all the time.
I have never had any occasion to have any hard words for Jack. A few times he would get a little bit---maybe do a little something wrong, and I would mention it to him, and he would just go to pieces--not anything--but anything the rest of the day or the next day would not be right. [Deletion.] He is a great big husky fellow. I think he is 39 years old. He has never been married. He has no interest in women. He gets flustered, has a small word for it, at times. He has never had any trouble. He is a good, loyal, hard working employee. He always has been. 
Intelligent, big, husky (huh?), emotional, easily flustered, loyal.

Tom,

Have you done any work ruling Jack Dougherty out as being in any way related to Dallas Oil and Cattle millionaire Dudley Tarlton Dougherty.

I have an aversion to geneology and family tree history as it really begins to confuse me but Dudley and his family have an interesting history in Texas and I was wondering if you had done any digging around it?

Lee,

Duds Dougherty contacted Garrison, telling him that a "Janis Taber" had information on the assassination. Garrison got Gurvich to follow it up and Gurvich duly reported "she knows nuttin', boss, nuttin' I tell ya." and that was the end of it. But most of us now know that Gurvich was a little bit suspect himself...

Janis Taber lived in a very expensive Manhattan apartment, and I have to wonder if she wasn't related to Robert Taber, one of the FPCC founders?

Duds himself was a failed Democrat political candidate whose ranch in Beesville played host to the likes of LBJ, Madam Nhu and Audie Murphy. Beesville is 500 miles from Dallas, and Duds had Irish and Latino heritage and was a full-on Catholic.

I'm guessing the following letter is to Bud Fensterwald from Mary Ferrell.  The pages are duplicated:

http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/D%20Disk/Daugherty%20Dudley%20Tarleton/Item%2001.pdf

Notice how Ferrell spells Dudley Dougherty's name as Daugherty.

Ferrell was wrong about the dates of the arrival of Madame Nhu in Dallas.  Nhu arrived on October 23, 1963 coinciding with the General Walker visit.

Included in the Warren de Brueys report of December 2, 1963, is a list of travelers to Mexico & Latin America in September 1963 departing by air from New Orleans.  The FBI were searching passenger lists to ascertain whether Lee Harvey Oswald was onboard any flights that departed NOLA to Mexico City on or about September 17, 18, or 19.

The lists are contained CD75 pages 600-615.

On pages 604-606 is a manifest of names from Eastern Airlines daily 7:55am flight to Mexico City.

On the September 18 list is a James E. Dougherty Jr. who I am mildly interested in.

An "A" to you for effort. Dougherty told the WC he "left" high school in 1937, but he did not

been 14 years old in a 1937 yearbook if he was presented as a member of the senior class.

Page 4 of the thread, started by Greg, probably includes all the highlights of Dougherty's background. He and his parents share a gravestone and it displays his birth year as 1923.:
http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=18068&page=4 This inforrmation is also available at findagrave.com .
Thanks for the calibration Tom.
 
Checking the links you provided, I see that Jack's father was Redfern C. Dougherty. That name rang a bell, so I went back to the 1937 Yearbook and I found a Redfern C. Dougherty Jr. listed on the very next page. Wouldn't be surprised if this was Jack's older brother.


Stan,

I believe Jack and Redfern's father was not R. C. Dougherty.  That is how the FBI wrote his name during the affidavit that Jack gave on 12/19/63 when Jack's father was allegedly present with him but according to the following link the father's actual name was R. O. Dougherty.

In addition to Jack's brother Redfern C. Dougherty, there was a sister called Dorothy Ladeta Dougherty who was born in 1926 according to the Texas Legislative records:

Name                                           Birthdate   Sex  Mother                          Father                               County
==============================================================================================================================
Dougherty, Dorothy Ladeta            10-20-1926   F   Mary Kriese                     R O Dougherty                     Dallas

http://files.usgwarchives.net/tx/dallas/vitals/births/1926/dallb26c.txt

Was it Jack's father with him during the FBI interview or was it his brother?  Don't know.  But I'm always wary when names are spelt wrong in certain documents.  If it was the father - how did they get the middle initial wrong?

But who knows. Spelling anomalies seem to show up a lot with this family.
 
PS: My father was born in 1920, but his birth certificate shows a 1 typed through the 0 (192Φ). My grandmother shrugged it off saying it was 1920 and the birth order/certificates of his siblings showed this had to be true. It never became an issue for the remainder of his life, but it just goes to show that even official documents can get screwed up.

Very true, Stan.

Trying hard to find anomalies often results in overlooking simple stuff that is staring you in the face.  I've looked at the picture of that tombstone 1000 times.

If Shelley and Truly have backgrounds that are suspect at best then I still level suspicion at Jack E. Dougherty and his background given he worked with the other two for a long, long time.  I think I'm trying too hard trying to find any clue that may shine some light on this so may take a break from old Jack but the photos of Redfern Dougherty and Jack Daugherty from the yearbook that Tom posted have me very perplexed.

One day all of this will fall into place for us.

Tom, do you have access to a better copy of this - - or better eyes?

Lee,

An apology for several delayed responses. Daughter Dorothy's birth cert. image.:

All things considered, I think it is an elaborate "C" and not an "O". BTW, I had better tread carefully here. The relation I telephoned
recently was one of Dorothy's sons.

Here is an image of Redfern's 1978 Death Cert.:

The "C" is type written.

As far as Dudley Tarlton Dougherty, I embarked on a search and immediately came upon his sister's obit.:

...quickly leading to her daughter's obit.

Her daughter, Dudley's niece, was married to a guy from St. Louis and they lived on Juptier Island. His name is Peter S. Pauley, so that
was intriguing as well. The Bushes and Pryror Reeds are inseparable. Permelia Pryor Reed's father, Samuel was from St. Louis. She personally signed off on all prospective buyers of Jupiter Island property. Pauley was not related to Edwin, but to an architect, Walter E Pauley, who partnered with Charles Eames. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_and_Ray_Eames

It concerns me how little control I actually have in avoiding tangents. I will get back to Dudley... but Margeson and other Rochester natives are on the plate.

BROOKS WRAMPELMEIER
Interviewed by: Charles Stuart Kennedy
Initial interview date: March 22, 2000


........When the Kennedy Administration
came in, Mill's pro forma resignation was accepted with no other explanation. There
wasn’t any “we have something else in mind for you.” It was just “please go in and get
agrément for this fellow Macomber,” who had been the Assistant Secretary for
Congressional Affair in the Eisenhower Administration. President Kennedy apparently
liked Macomber but wanted to replace him with a congressman from Arkansas who had
lost his seat. Mills was later offered the embassy in Uruguay but he declined and retired
from the Foreign Service.
Q: Well, Macomber had also been a favorite of Rooney’s and Rooney was the
appropriations man for the department of state.
WRAMPELMEIER: Well, Macomber was brought into State by John Foster Dulles. His
family and the Dulles family came from Rochester. Macomber came out in January 1961,
a bachelor just 40 years old. Mills was in his sixties. I think the idea was that having an
ambassador in Amman closer in age to King Hussein would be an advantage. The British
also sent a relatively young ambassador named John Henniker-Major. So you had two
relatively young ambassadors with a king who was at that time in his late 20s or early
30s......

Sorry for interrupting this genealogy subtopic, but I got another question regarding JED.

He (JED) told to WC that about the time of assassination he went to the 6th floor `to get some stock`. Now I wonder:
1. Did WC try to specify, what kind of `stock` and why JED was looking for? Why `geting some stock` was so urgent?
2. Maybe this is especially my problem since English is only my third language, but is it so that words `some stock` sound very inconcrete?

Brother Redfern had 3 years in ROTC's Crack Company and attended ROTC Camp Dallas 2 years running. 

Apart from being a Dallas ROTC program, I have no idea what "Crack Company" was, but I don't think it was a secret society of coke snorters. Camp Dallas was a month long ROTC camp. 

During the Cold War, the ROTC trained both future Military Intelligence Officers and Army Security Agency officers. A notable example is Ed Lansdale.  

Jack does not appear to have been in the ROTC - but did spend his army stint at an Indiana base where all the state-of-the-art German aircraft were brought for reverse engineering.  

In 1972, Redfern Dougherty, Jr was made Manager of General Accounting for the Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corp based in Houston.  http://www.newspapers.com/newspage/3443065
Mr. Tom Scully:
 
Could you please use your genealogy skills and tools to check into the background of Redfern C. Dougherty Jr., brother of Jack E. Dougherty? What he did, where he lived and worked, who he associated with, etc.?
 
I can't shake the likeness of the guy in the William Allen "Bottle Photo" to these early pictures of Redfern Jr.



If this guy was Redfern Jr., what was he doing in front of the TSBD building right after the assassination?
 
It may well be another fruitless tangent, but who knows.

I recently took the opportunity to e-mail Melvin Eisenberg, regarding his memo "Identity of Assassin", which I included as an attachment. I just received a reply, which said essentially that too much time has passed for him to remember what was on his mind in 1964. He doesn't even remember Jack Dougherty. He's 79 and still teaches law and so I had hopes he'd have memories of serving on the Warren Commission.

My questions were:

- Do you recall why you titled the memo so?

- The memo outlined your suspicions of TSBD employee Jack Dougherty. Yet when Dougherty was deposed by Joseph Ball a month later, not a single one of your concerns were addressed. What was your reaction?

- Dougherty admitted in his November 22 police affidavit, and in his testimony, that he was on the sixth floor shortly before the assassination. Yet he was never once asked what he witnessed up there. Any comments?

- Roy Truly described Dougherty as "mentally retarded" during his Secret Service interview, adding that he "has been especially confused since the assassination." It may interest you (it came out in 2011) that Truly also described a black employee near the base of the elevators as "slightly retarded" when he ran to the shaft with motorcycle officer Marrion Baker. Doesn't it seem likely that Truly's "retarded" characterization was his standard method of deflecting inquiries to employees who may have been involved in the assassination?

- Despite Truly yelling up the shaft and ringing the service bell, the freight elevators remained hung up on the 5th floor. Yet when Truly and Baker had climbed the stairs to the 5th, they found that the west freight elevator was no longer there. And it wasn't until Dougherty's April 8th testimony- 4 1/2 months after the assassination- that he finally admitted, with some difficulty, that he was the one who had brought the west freight elevator downstairs. Did you have any suspicions as to his delay in coming forward with this information, i.e. that he was hoping to keep it a secret?
