- William D. Reids' "Loyalist's in Ontario, Sons & Daughters of the American Loyalists of Upper Canada", lists Catharine Docksteder as married to Lyman Burnham of Haldimand in 29 Apr 1819 when she applied for U.E. Land grant. O.C (orders-in -council). Also under John Docksteder, Nicholas, of Haldimand Co., 28 Apr, 1812. contact Kevin Everingham for other lookups in this book.
- Listing two of Capt. Dochstader's wives. Thanks to Debbie St.Louis & Erlene Dudley, 2003: "Erlene verified the fact that John Dockstader was married to the sister, not the niece, of Kaneahintwaghte, with David Faux, who is the author of the information that Debbie St. Louis used and which appears on this web site. David's original source was the "Journal of John Norton", p.5 and I checked this source as well. The citation there indicates that Catherine was the niece of Kaneahintwaghte; therefore, her mother would be the sister of Kaneahintwaghte."
- according to several sources including IGI files (no actual proof documentation found), John DOCHSTADER (b.~1740) and the 1/2 sister of Joseph BRANT (b.~1740), were married Abt 1769 in an Indian Ceremony, at: Mohawk River Valley, Albany, New York. The names and places above may be of interest, but all of the estimated dates seem miscalculated.

- from the book The Everingham family of Michigan (c)2006 John Dochstader was a close friend & military peer of 6 Nations Chief Joseph Brant. His 1st wife was "rumored" to be Joseph's 1/2 sister or neice although no proof has been found. Dochstader & Brant's relationship can be found noted in the 19th Century Land Atlas notes of Haldimand County, Ontario, when a killing of Delaware Braves ignited a retaliation near Dochstader's home. He sent for and received help from his friend Joseph Brant and a group of Mohawk Braves.
- updated research of David K. Faux, Oct 2011... An affadavit of Henry Dotchsteder of the Grand River, states he is the brother of John Dotchsteder,and that he, Henry, had never professed to own the land in question. Sgt John Dochstader and his wife, Catherine, moved back to Canada, and lived on the land that was granted to him by Joseph Brant and now was known as the Fradenburgh Tract. Sgt.
