Since we last corresponded I have traced the Doty name into Linn County. My mothers maiden name was Cue but she and I am also descended from Mayflower pilgrim, Edward Doty...though not a descendant of the Doty's that were early Linn residents.
Many years ago I got a copy of a William Cue marriage from Joan Ford. At first i was pleased to have it but later realized that there was no proof that it was "my" William Cue. So, much of what we know can be wrong by making a simple mistake due to a lack of solid evidence. Joan could be right but that document won't necessarily prove it (IMO).
There is a date of death on Eli Cue's stone but I may have found him thirty years later in the census living with children. I will have to look it up and post it here,
There is a Spurgeon descendant who is interested in the Cue name because of the two Spurgeon women (cousins, going on memory) who married Eli(?)...again, going on memory. Perhaps he could be a source of new data.
I have met Cue's by chance in western Iowa and they are descended from the "other" Cue family, which I call the Atlantic (Iowa) Cue's. I would be interested in seeing if there is a DNA link between the two groups.
None of this, unfortunately, addresses your questions. I will have to review my notes and see if I can be of any help.
Until then, stay warm! It's -14F here today.
