In Reply to: The Dockweiler Family by Larry Epling of 31

I am researching the Dockwell family, and concluded that the original spelling was actually Dockweiler. I know that the family came from Schlesvig-Holstein, possibly the town of Ribe, and that my gr-gr-grandmother Margaret Dockwell married Lars Lauritsen. A number of their 10 children came to Northern Iowa, settling around Hampton. Her brother George Dockwell also came to Hampton. Most with the name spelled Dockwell seem to be descended from him.

It seems likely that they would be cousins to your Dockweiler ancestors in Iowa. My Dockwell families in Iowa include:
