      Brian,

      Here's a Dowling puzzle that may or may not interest you.

      My mother's maiden name was Mildred Dowling. After many years of family research, she learned that she is descended from a James Dolen who married a Mary Morgan in 1749 in Frome, Somerset, England. One of their sons, also a James Dolen, b. 1750, married Sarah Elliot. In turn, their son Thomas married Mary Dowling(some doubt as to her surname) and was thereafter known as Thomas Dowling (that's one theory, anyway). However, the name transformation may have taken place, all the descendants since have taken the name Dowling. Some migrated here to the USA, and others remained in England.

      Do these circumstances make us less authentic Dowlings than others?

      How is a Doolan different from a Dolen?

      Good evening to you, Brian,

      Thanks so much for the very prompt and most thorough response to my Dolen/Dowling message. I appreciated it all, but the last part giving some of the descendants of James Dolen got me especially excited. This is clearly my family, and someone out there besides me must be researching it.

      Of course I may be misinterpreting your message. What exactly is your source for this information? Are these data all from your own gleaning, or is there in fact someone else researching this line? Though I've been using computers for many years, I'm still in the learning stage in regard to the Internet (and will probably always be), so your reference to the "BBS" has me puzzled. Is this a "bulletin board", and if so, how do I access it?

      As to your specific question regarding the Dolen data, the only mismatch I see compared to what I have is that Thomas Dolen/Dowling's father, as well as his grandfather, was named James Dolen, according to my best information.

      At present, the James Dolen descendants (together with spouses) in my family tree number somewhat over 500, and include some 7th great grandchildren. Most of these are immigrants (including both Hugh and James Dowling) to the USA and their descendants. I've been busy with other (non-Dowling) lines in my family, and have not yet gotten serious about tracking down Dowling relatives in the "old country".

      I eagerly await your elaborating on the source of your James Dolen data!

      - Hal

      P.S. As to the William Dowling query from Australia, I have no match for that.
