Dole ancestors who were McDole, McDoal, McDoel, McDoell and/or McDowell

In "History of Bedford NH from 1737" on page 975 in a Genealogy for "McDowell or McDole" there is reference to three children, Thomas, William and Mary, who were orphaned in Londonderry when both parents died. Their father, an uncle and a grandfather (last names unknown) "joined the Massachusetts Bay Colony about 1630 or 1640". The grandfather was killed in Boston when "a tub of butter" crushed him. Thomas, William and Mary "found a home with a Mr. McLaughlin".

Separately, in this same history of Bedford it tells of Thomas and William (b. 1719) coming (from Londonderry?) to Bedford ... and Thomas "went on and was never heard of again" and William married his brother's widow (an common event in those days).

Separately, we have a family genealogical record of a Thomas and Rosannah McLaughlin marriage and children (it would seem that McLaughlin, benefactor to the orphans in their childhood, lost a daughter but gained grandchildren). The names of the children of Thomas/Rosannah and William/Rosannah (graves and headstones of the latter have been located) are much the same. But we do not have a marriage date of William McDoell (then the spelling) and Rosannah McLaughlin McDoell ... and as a result do not know which of the children were sired by Thomas and which by William.

We suspect the original immigrant was named McDowell, but do not know. Any information regarding any aspect of the above would be appreciated.

Finally, the "History of Bedford New Hampshire from 1737" was printed by the Rumford Printing Company of Concord NH in 1903. We'd appreciate any insight - even guesses - as to how the people of Bedford (the book states "Published by the Town") learned of such information as the "tub of butter" and "taken in by McLaughlin" in 1903?

Thanks for facts, conjectures, guesses or crystal-ball-readings!

I assume it's Francis Alexander Dole who was
born 20 nov 1891 in Claremont. He was the
4th child of Simeon J. Dole and Julia A Brishka.
He was born in England and was naturalized
abt 1880 and she was born in Germany. Simeon
was born about 1850, the son of James B. Dole
and Charlotte Hale both born in England. Julia
was born about 1867, the daughter of France
Brishka also born in Germany. There are
about 10 different spellings of her last
name in the NH records.

You are probably right,

Hi Becki:

I've been doing research on the Newbury Doles
and have stumbled on your branch. I'll
include what I have found on your branch. The
NH vital records can only be freely accessed
to the 1920s, so it is very incomplete. I
have found info in the Mass. records but I
wasn't consistent in recording the information.
