Dorothea Sophia ZABEL or Dora Sophia ZOBLER

Trying to find out about an gggranmother. Wasn't sure of name at first. Saw a marriage notice for a known daughter of hers. The notice said the daughter of John SOMMERVILLE and Dora Sophia ZOBLER. The notices was for their daughter in Nebraska. On all the census forms that sow her as Sophia SOMMERVILLE (all the different spellings of the last name). Now I have seen references to John SOMMERVILLE married to a Sophia ZABEL. The first place I have seen her is in the 1865 Minnisota Territory and state census, all it shows is she is John's wife and mother to 5 children, no doubt some from John's first wife. The 1870 federal census shows them still in Bergen, McLeod, Minnesota . She is shown with more children an is listed as 33 years old. That would put her birth about 1847 in Prussia.

So, the question is, what is her real name?
