A resident of the Bayshore section, he lived on the homestead staked out by his father in 1870 as first settler in that area. A lifelong cattleman, he owned pasture and cattle in Lee and Charlotte Counties at his death.

Daughrey of Arcadia; two sisters, Mrs. Amanda Steffen and Mrs. Mary Bylaska of Fort Myers and two grandchildren, Jimmy and Sallie Daughtrey. Daughtrey attended the first Fort Myers high school. He spent several years teaching school in the county. Then he combined operation of his cattle with running a general store and post office at Bayshore, branched into the dairy business, and in his final years devoted himself to raising beef cattle. He was a strong advocate of improved pastures and upbreeding of herds and was among the first to import Brahman stock. Deeply religious, Daughtrey was a member of the First Baptist Church and had been an ordained Baptist minister since the early 1920's. Although he did not practice the ministry as a profession, Daughtrey offered his services as a preacher to any church in the area whenever needed and frequently "filled in" at churches at Pine Island Bridge, Immokalee, Felda and other communities.

Ms. Hudler,
   I am writing to obtain information on posting obituaries on the net. Must I obtain permission from your newspaper to post obits on my genealogy website of my family members who passed away over the years and whose obits were posted in the newspaper? And if so, do I get the permission from you or someone else ? Must I get permission for each individual obit or can I obtain permission for all the obits at once? I am looking forwards to hearing from you. Thank you very much.
