Dobler families of Baltimore

I'm curious about the European origins of these Dobler families of Baltimore. 1880 census indicates the parents of David and John were born in Maryland, but I'm wondering if that's correct.

5th Ward, page 74, 8 Jul 1870

DAVID DOBLER 52 MD railroad clerk
Margaret 47 Prussia
Catherine 26 MD
David 22 MD engineer
Theodo(re) 20 MD railroad clerk
(1880 cens says Theodore b MD, father b GER, mother b PA.)
Walter 17 MD
Margaret 11 MD
Caroline 8 MD
Frederick 53 MD no occupation

Next entry:
(All b MD)
JOHN DOBLER 55 no occupation; Real Estate $12,000; Personal Pstate $12,000
Mary 39
John 18
Ida 16
Mary 14
Annie 10
Cornelia 5
Fannie RIEDER 20

page 136
GEORGE DOBLER 59 MD clerk in store; RE $4,000; PE $2,500
(George's birthplace listed as Prussia in 1860.)
Jacob 29 MD merchandising brokers
Anna C. 60 Wuerttemberg
Catherine 31 MD school teacher

page 181
GUSTAVUS A. DOBLER 31 PA bookkeeper, RE $2,800; PE $1,000
Pauline 35 PA
Louisa BUNSHIER 22 Prussia domestic servant

Sixth Ward, page 318/22
in household of Thomas H. COOKSEY 25 MD and Margery COOKSEY 25 MD

1860 CENSUS of Baltimore shows, among other Doblers,

CHRISTIAN DOBLER 56 Wuerttemberg
Pauline 24 PA
Maria 22 PA
Gustavus 20 PA salesman
Charles 18 PA box maker

1850 census shows this family in Lancaster Co PA.
Following is from the New York Times of 5 Sep 1903:


Baltimore, Md. --- Gustavus A. Dobler, of the firm of Dobler & Mudge, died [4 Sep 1903] of Bright's disease. He was born 64 years ago at Elizabethtown NJ. For many years he had been engaged in the wholesale paper business. He was connected with numerous charitable and financial institutions in this city, and was one of the oldest members of St. Peter's Church. In 1896 he was elected to the State Senate from the First Legislative District as a Republican, and, while a member of that body, introduced and had passed several laws which have proven very beneficial to the State. Mr. Dobler was one of the leading members of the Merchants and Manufacturers' Association, a director of the German Savings Bank, and was closely connected with the German Orphan Asylum and the Maryland Homeopathic Hospital.
