(IV) Joseph , son of Daniel (2) and Mehitable Doane, was born in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, the 23id day of 2d month, 1697, died probably at Cane Creek, North Carolina. He was a carpenter by trade, and is said to have been a young man of great physical strength and power of endurance, and it was doubtless these qualities which led to his selection as one of the three men chosen by the Penn proprietors to travel on foot for three days in determining the extent of land to be acquired from the Indians in what is known in history as the "walking purchase." After the death of his wife, Mr. Doane was granted permission to remove from Wrightstown to the Buckingham Meeting, and subsequently he was given leave to visit among his father's people at Cape Cod. After his return to Pennsylvania, he asked for a certificate, in 1750, to visit "Friends wherever his lot may be cast," and with this permission he went to North Carolina and is mentioned there as one of the organizers of the Friends Meeting at Cane Creek, where he is supposed to have died. He was a devout Friend and held firmly to that faith so long as he lived. On the 14th of 10th month, 1726, Joseph Doane married Mary Carter at the Middletown Meeting. She died after 1740 and before 1744, and was a daughter of James and Grace Carter.
