  • Notes 
    • In 1900 the census records parents "William F. Dobel," 54, born Jul 1845 in Germany, living with his wife of 31 years, "Caroline A.," 54, born Sep 1845 in Germany, and some of their Iowa-born children. Living in the home at the time were "William J.", 21, born Oct 1878; "Amil T.," 20, born May 1880; Caroline E., 18, born Feb 1882; John F, 15, born May 1885; "August A," 13, born April 1887; and Amelia A., 10, born Mar 1890. 1900 U.S. Census, Lincoln Twsp, Worth Cnty, IA (T 623, Roll 468, stamped p. 76B).
    • August's WW I draft registration card (which appears to have been filled out by a scriviner other than August, and dated 5 Jun 1917) reports his name as "Augest E. Dobel." But his signature reads "August E Dobel." The card gives his age as 30 and recites that he was born in Manly, IA on 25 Apr 1887. It further reports that he was self-employed as a farmer, and that he had a wife and 1 child.
    • The 1930 census lists August Dobel, 43, living with his wife "Alma H," 38, and daughter Gladys, 16. All were born in Iowa. August worked as a farmer. 1930 U.S. Census, Lincoln Twsp, Worth Cnty, IA (T 626, Roll 691, stamped p. 225).
    • The Social Security Death Index reports that August Dobel (SSN 480-48-5170; issued by Iowa) was born 25 Apr 1887 and died in Apr 1967 while residing in Manly, IA. August's tombstone gives his name as "August E." and dates 1887 - 1967.
