Doherty, 2nd Lieut Charles Edward, RFC

This Eddie Doherty was the brother of Fred, George (at S.M.C. in the 90s, and a priest in the Toronto Archdiocese in 1901-1961), and a sister (Charlotte) who married Arthur S. Knowlton in 1900, the father of Dr. Charles and Dr. William Knowlton. I asked the latter on the phone if Edward who died in WWI was his uncle; he verified in the family overnight that he was. (That is where I heard Eddie.) Another brother of Edward Doherty was Arthur, the father of Lawrence Doherty.
