Notes

  • Immigration*: 1741; Johannes Doll: Ship Marlborough, Thomas Bell, master, Qualified Philadelphia Sept 23. 1741.3
  • Note*: John Doll was born in 1700 in Bretten, the Palatinate, now Germany. He and Catharina Hartmann married and had seven children there. In 1741 the family emigrated to America, and were residing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania by 1745, where they had one more child. Two daughters and a son married and remained in the Lancaster Harrisburg York area. The three younger sons removed to Frederick County, Maryland. He died in 1765. His widow died twenty years later in Lancaster.

    John Doll's occupation is unknown. His sons were teacher, cabinet maker, blacksmith and store keeper.
  • Note: "Baptista Dohl was born in the latter half of the 17th century. We have no record of his parents, nor of any brothers and sisters. He is listed as "free-and townsman of Bretten", and worked as a "Carrier and driver". This probably meant he was a teamster, driving freight and delivery wagons. His wife was Anna Catharina, but "her girls name is not yet known."

    Johannes Dohld (Doll) was born to Baptista and wife Anna Catharina on January 17, 1700. " [The church records also include siblings.]

    "Johannes Doll, the young, preserved at the 1st of March 1728 his civil rights. At the 18th of May 1728 he had his wedding with Catharina Harmann."

    Mr. Bickel found that Johannes Doll emigrated to America in 1741."4
  • Note: On 17 Feb 1745 John Doll sponsors the baptism of a child of Conrad and Margaret Ull. [Possibly his brother Conrad. This is the earliest record in Lancaster found by this compiler.]

    Then on 13 May 1747 Conrad Doll and wife sponsor the baptism of "Joseph, son of John Doll of Bretten in Palatinate, and Catharine, daughter of Leonard Hartman, of Bretten"5
  • Note: Lancaster Reformed Church: "The record does show that [the new pastor Rev. Dr. William] Hendal's first burial on February 3, 1765 was that of John Doll, Sr., the father of the future Schoolmaster John Doll. ... John Doll Sr. was highly respected in the City."6
  • Note: The Lancaster County 'Letters of Administration Index' lists "Doll, John 1765". He is not listed in the will index.7
