Jeanne Adelaide DISRUD born 8 October 1920 in Rolla, North Dakota, married EDWIN ERVIN DOLL on 23 February 1940 in Minnesota. Edwin Ervin Doll was born 25 January 1916 in Minnesota. He was raised in Wheaton and Dumont in Traverse County. He was one of six children of FRANK DOLL b 8 March 1890, and Barbara CORDIE b 22 February 1892/d3 Jun 1970.

Edwin's siblings: Irene, Lucille, Bernadine, Norman, and Gilbert.

FRANK DOLL was one of 12 children of MATHIAS DOLL and Mary MILLER.

Frank's siblings: Peter, Kate, Christine, Mary, Bernard, Annie, Joseph, Karman, Michael, and twins Elizabeth and Lucy.

MATHIAS DOLL born 1857 Neiderzissen Germany was one of six children of PETER DOLL born 1831 Germany and Anna Marie BERRESHEIM b 1833 Germany.

Mathias' siblings, all born in Neiderzissen: John b 1853, Servas b 1855, Henry b1859, Christina b1866, and Antonius 'Anthony' b 1868. All of these six children immigrated to the United States, settling in Minnesota in Minneapolis and in Croke Township, Dollymount, Dumont and other locations in Traverse County.


"The Dolls were very close friends with the FRISCH and FRIDGEN families, also from Neiderzissen, and also immigrants to Traverse County. The Frischs, Fridgens, and Dolls married into each other's families in many instances. I have compiled a great deal of information about the Dolls."

"I have a copy of the Centennial book, '1885-1985 Dumont', which has a wealth of information about early Traverse County settlers, as well as families into the 1980's. Additionally, I have data on the families linked to JOSEPH DOLL, who immigrated to Ohio in 1834, and whose descendants later relocated to Otter Tail and Traverse Counties in Minnesota."
