Thanks Joan for helping me thusfar.
You are right about the 15th of August, must be a slip of the key(board).
I think Doekle changed his name into Dan, because Dan is much easier for daily use. My father heard once that the sons of Dan were having some very good jobs in the USA. After receiving youre message i searched a little bit further and found out that son Dan (or Daniel) was member of the Montana House of Representatives in the 60's, and he was high placed in the banking community in Helena Montana, so i think this is a interesting connection you gave me to search for further information.
Of course, any other information is still welcome

Greetings, Anne Dijkstra
