Hi!! Very interesting, however, I have a very complete history of the Dolloffs' and I can't seem to find the 3rd Samuel....I have 2 before John Dolloff, Sr., whom I can trace directly to myself. Anyhow, I can't help with the Palmers, but I found your post most informative. By the way....the name Dolloff is derived from the German "Dolhoff"...there are no recorded records of the name in Russian in any available resurce. Also, the fact that he came from England, in the company of an English nobleman, lends credence to his origins as a Prussian Cavalry officer of the Protestant faith.
