Doub Family

First Generation:

John Doub was born in 1743, in Littfred*, now Kreuztal, near Cologne, Germany, and immigrated in 1773. He lived for a few years in Lancaster County PA before coming to Stokes Co (present day Forsyth) North Carolina, where he first shows up in the Moravian records around 1780 as a daylaborer and tanner, living near Bethania. He married Mary Eve Spainhour (1755-1835) about 1780. He was brought up in the German Reformed Church, and although living in close proximity to the Moravians and interacting frequently with their community, did not join the congregation. In 1789 he heard a Methodist preacher named Yeargin at the home of Martin Hauser, and was so pleased with him that he invited him to come preach at his own house. Following the sermon, a Methodist class was formed, and gradually grew into a full congregation which became known as Doub's Chapel. A large shed was built in 1802 to accommodate the worshippers, and John Doub was ordained a minister himself in that year. In 1858 a brick church was constructed. This was replaced by the present church in 1910. John Doub died in 1814 and appears to be the first burial in the old cemetery of Doub's Chapel.

*This location appears in a lot of genealogies, but we don't have documentation for it. Kreuztal is about 80 km east of Cologne, and there is a small town, Littfeld, about 5 km north of Kreuztal. Could that be what is meant? Please let us know if you have more information.

From Ella Holder Doub, quoting records left by Olin Doub: "Joseph Doub, a very tall man, was a farmer and mechanic by trade and was also a Methodist preacher. In his younger days he also studied and practiced medicine. He owned much land, had many friends, was a member of the church for 43 years and was a deacon 36 years. He married Susannah Reynolds, daughter of Dr. Archibald and Nancy Clayton Reynolds who came here from Rhode Island about 1810. The married life of Joseph and Susannah Doub was a model one - everything always peaceable - and their dining table flowed with milk and honey - an abundant life. No one knew better how to spread a good table than Susannah Doub. To their union were born five sons and four daughters."
