Mark Paschal died of a fever while on a hunting trip. In the late 1880's, Alice Elizabeth Burke Paschal Doherty moved to OK to live on land given to her daughter Mollie Paschal in settlement of her claim to a headright. In the winter she became ill and died. Her son John Doherty was raised by Anna Doherty Schwartz and William Schwartz.
