Clinton Alfred Doty was born 13 August 1876 in Oxford, Butler County, Ohio, United States to Franklin Bake Doty (1850-1935) and Esther Ann Davison (1853-1920) and died 20 May 1936 in Sycamore, DeKalb County, Illinois, United States of unspecified causes. He married Ethel M. Perry (1877-1951) 25 December 1900 in Kane County, Illinois, United States. Ancestors are from the United States, Ireland, Switzerland.

In 1920 Clint was working in a realty office in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ten years later he was the owner of a dairy and home in Sycamore, Illinois. The dairy was located at 328 High Street. Clint's sons Myrle and Laverne worked at the dairy. They didn't like the hard 7-days-a-week work, but they took pride that their milk was especially rich, while the competing dairy in Sycamore was known to water their milk. Clint sold the dairy shortly before his death. He also owned a farm near Ohio Grove in Dekalb County, Illinois.
