Notes

  • Note*: Original baptism record, translated:

    1811 Mariane, born 2 August, baptized 12 September, parents Conrad Doll legitimate wife Magdalena, baptism witness female Elizabeth Doll (single) [meaning never married]2
  • Note: See the note in this database under Mary Magdalena Graff regarding the upbringing of her young daughters after her death.
  • Note: The auction catalog described lot #71: C 1822 Theorem on Velvet Lititz Moravian School

    "Watercolor on velvet theorem, ca. 1822, having central motif of mixed fruits in basket resting on three rows of leaves, attributed to Mary Ann Doll (1812-1860) while a student at the Lititz Moravian School for Girls (now Linden Hall School for Girls), housed in later painted Victorian frame, 20-1/2" x 17". Slight browning and foxing to edges but strong bright colors, 10" vertical fabric pull to top center. School archives show Mary Ann Doll enrolled in 1822. The basket and base, while unique to this piece, are characteristic of the work taught to the young girls attending the school. Approx. six other examples of Lititz Moravian Girls School theorems are known to exist. See "The Ornamental Branches" (Heritage Center of Lancaster County, Inc.) by Patricia T. Herr for related examples."7
  • Note: Church membership, Tabor First Reformed Church, Lebanon:

    "Young members add to the church in June 1832. ...Maryann Doll"3
  • Note: "William Moore and Mary Anne
    Doll were married April 21st 1840"

    "Mary Anne, wife of Dr William
    Moore died Feb. 8, 1860"8
  • Note: In his 1841 William Moore of Lebanon made the following bequest:

    "Item: I give and bequeath unto Mary Anne Moore, the wife of Doctor William Moore [of Womelsdorf] aforesaid, one hundred shares of stock in the Harrisburg Bank, to be assigned to her in her own individual right."9
  • Note: Obituaries of sisters Catharine Elizabeth (Doll) Guilford and Mary Ann (Doll) Moore were pasted into the bible of William Moore of Lebanon. The religious nature of the text suggests that these were written by and for members of their congregation.:

    "In Womelsdorf, Berks county, Pa., on the 8th inst., Mary Ann, wife of Dr. William Moore, aged 48 years, 6 months and 6 days.
    Mrs. Moore, was a daughter of Conrad and Mary Doll, of Lancaster, Pa. In her infancy she was incorporated with the Church of Christ in holy baptism. In her childhood, she was removed to Lebanon, where she remained, until some time after her marriage. On profession of her faith in Christ, she was admitted to full communion with the Reformed Church, by the Rev. Henry Kroh, and retained her connection with the Lebanon congregation until her death..."10
