* The Dockman Family of Baltimore Home Page*

Updated September 6, 2000


This site includes information about the decendents of John Henry DOCKMAN, who emigrated from Germany to Baltimore around 1870. He stayed in Baltimore and married Mary SANDERS. They had three children, only one of whom survived beyond their early 20s -- Louis Aloysius Dockman.
Louis married Helen KEAGLE, daughter of William Keagle and Mabel MEEK. This is the brach I'm most interested in. All I know about William is that he grew up near Norfolk Virginia and as a young boy collected the Confederate dead from the battlefields. He later moved to Baltimore, where he met Mabel Meek.

Mabel MEEK fascinates me. Her father was Adam Meek, who was born in Ohio and moved to Baltimore some time before 1844, when he married Mabel's mother, Mary Ann McFaul, daugher of John and Mary McFaul from Ireland. Adam and Mabel had seven children when Adam enlisted in the 2nd Maryland Infantry and went to war in 1961. He was injured and captured at Spotsylvania Courthouse and later died in Andersonville prison, summer of 1864.

I'd love to know what happed to the other Meek children after their father died. They are Charles, John, Mabel (b.1850), Robert F. (b.1852), Adam W.(b.1854), James H. (b.1857), and Mary E. (b.1861). Their mother, Mary Ann McFaul Meek remarried but died in 1873.

I'd also like more information about Mary SANDERS, William KEAGLE. I'll also share what I've got.
