There is a little link here, through work and friendship. Here is the entry in my g.grandfather John F. Schreiber's autograph book: "Your Friend and Shopmate- Joseph J. Dory Buffalo N.Y.Dec. 12-17-1883" My g.grandfather was a printer-lithographer (commercial artist)b. Preston, Ontario. He was in Cleveland in 1889, but lived and worked in Buffalo for much of his life. Were any of your ancestors printers? Adam and Barbara Dory must have been contemporaries of Valentine (b. 1828 Offenburg, Ger.) and Caroline Schreiber, the parents of John F., who lived in the area of Buffalo known as "Black Rock" after they left Canada. Thanks for responding. I have very few "clues" and everything helps.C.
