About Us

Doanes traveled by wagon to populate the Wild West.

The Doane Family Association of America, Inc. is a wealth of information on history, people and places of significance to the Doane family. Leadership sprouts from all walks of life, and the diversity of our natures and personal interests help the association navigate the dense forest of our family tree. Driven by a desire to discover the mystery of our origins, DNA projects are pursued, documents lying in the shadows are diligently sought and uncovered, and one by one cousins are located, celebrated and encouraged to join our nonprofit.

The Oregon Washington Idaho Chapter of the Doane Family Association of America, Inc. lies directly in Wild West where passions ride high and independent spirits soar over the uneven landscape that is our heritage. As noted on our logo, we value family, character, education, a strong work ethic, service to country and God. Our founder, Deacon John Doane, would be proud that his footsteps planted on the shore of Plymouth in 1630 produced faithful family members, a few outlaws, and rich stories to fill volumes and volumes of Doane books.
