Reflections for Sheriff Cleve Daugherty

Sheriff Daugherty,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served during World War I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Cleve Daugherty was my grandfather. He was killed when my father was about ten years old. Cleve’s wife had died three years prior to his death, leaving four children as orphans. I do remember my dad and mother taking us to visit Dorcas, Cleve’s younger sister, but no other family members that I recall.
Now that all four of his children have passed, I’m hoping they are having a joyous reunion after being separated from their parents for so many years.
My father, and my family, did have the privilege of visiting the D. C. memorial. It was very nice, and I think that my father was touched that his dad, who he had to give up so early in his life, was being remembered.

Growing up my father and his father never allowed us to forget who our Great Great Grandfather, the mighty Sheriff Deputy who lost his life doing a brave and honorable duty. For so long I have tried to locate you, and now everything I have worked so hard to find has now been pouring out. I'm sure you're looking down and finally feel it is time to reveal, as if you've been watching my hard, stubborn, yet honorable work I've done to get this far.

I read these stories of you and I now one day, we will meet and I hope heaven has enough time for me to hear all these stories about you and our family. Plus, we can speak of your Great Great Great Grandson (my youngest son), whom is almost a spinning reflection of you.

My Grandmother, Dorcas Daugherty Neal (your baby sister},
spoke of you often with such love from her heart. She spoke
of your kind and gentle ways. She was so proud of you. We
talked of you so much it was as though I had was there as the two of you grew up together.
I've told my 4 children of you and now I tell my 6 grandchildren the stories I was told. As long as we tell your story you will always be remembered. Thank you for your sacrifice.
I will meet you in Heaven.

With much love and respect,

My father and the rest of your children loved you until the day they died. They never forgot you for a moment, and you were always in their hearts and in their minds. JC is still living, and I am sure he thinks of you still. I hope there is a time when all is revealed and we are all reunited. In loving memory of your sacrifice for the people of Anderson County, Tennessee.
Your grandson
