Dockweiler anchor this collection; most material after 1950 concerns Mary Dockweiler Young or Frederick C. Dockweiler.
Background
The Dockweiler family story has been closely intertwined with the course of Los Angeles and consequently California history. The great Gold Rush was instrumental in bringing the first Dockweiler to Los Angeles,Henry Dockweiler(1824-1887), who settled here by 1852 after trying, apparently without success, his hand in the gold fields of northern California. Part of the American story of immigration, Henry and his wife Margaretha (1827-1924) were both immigrants, he from Bavaria, she from Alsace. They married in Los Angeles in 1861, after meeting in the Buffalo, New York area, their chief residence in the United States before making Los Angeles their home
