Sile Doty was born 30 August 1801 in St. Albans, Vermont, United States to David Doty (1778-1855) and Martha Wilson (1781-1875) and died 12 March 1876 in Reading, Hillsdale County, Michigan, United States of unspecified causes. He married Sophia Adams (?-?) 1825 in Bangor, New York, United States.


Sile Doty was an infamous robber, burglar and horse thief. Doty's criminal career is known primarily through his autobiography, compiled by J. G. W. Colburn and published four years after Doty's death as The Life of Sile Doty The Most Noted Thief and Daring Burglar of His Time. [1] As this title suggests, the tone of the autobiography is boastful and unapologetic.
