Irven Doller, Sr. was born in Germany on 21 Sep 1885 to parents John Doller and Bertha Keller.  He and his parents immigrated to the United States sometime around 1890.  I’m still looking for the records to verify the date.  All I have at this point are the census records stating when they arrived.  His younger sister, Freada Meta Doller was born 24 Aug 1895 in Buffalo, Erie, New York.

Irven’s father, John was a bricklayer/mason and Irven also worked in that field.  Irven married Magdalena “Lena” BOSKAT.  I have not located the marriage record for them.  
They had 6 sons beginning in 1916.  One of the sons, Reynold died in infancy. 

Irven lived his entire life in Buffalo, New York.  Four of his sons, Irven Jr., Elmer, Robert and Henry all served in World War II.

Irven died on 20 Jan 1963, survived by his wife, several sons and a loving family.  He is buried at Acacia Park Cemetery, North Tonawanda, Niagara, New York.  His memorial on FindAGrave can be found here #149436143.
