Summary, etc.:
"This was written for the Colorado Dolls; that they may have some knowledge of how the Doll family made their way from the Black Forest Region of southwest Germany to Indiana, then Illinois, and later, the eastern slopes of the Colorado Rockies. It was written in 1972 and 1973 with the help of my daughter, Norma (a stenographer) and son, Kevin, (a student in journalism). The material was researched and written while I was confined by illness to help pass the time. My wife, Roseanna, my sisters, Catherine, and Laura, and my brother, Leo, were a big help in recalling people, events, and dates. My father, Louis Doll, along with events in his own life, retold many stories told to him by his Grandmother Doll of her life in Germany, her journey across the Atlantic Ocean in a sailing ship, and life in an early settlement in Ripley County, Indiana. Copies of deeds to the Doll Homestead in Ripley County were obtained from Wilbur Doll of Riverside, California, including the original deed written on sheepskin signed by Andrew Jackson, President of the United States in 1835"--Foreword.
