LOOKUPS FROM:  Dollof Family Records compiled by Henrietta Dollof Johnson 1936.  From the Forward: "So far as I know, this is the first and only collection of data concerned with the Dolloff Family, available to the public; It is the result of 40 years of wrangling material from every and all sources .. original State, Town, Church and Private Records."  Among many Maine and other New England towns and beyond, this tome covers the Dolloff family in the Waldo County towns of Belfast, Belmont, Lincolnville, Monroe, Montville, Morrill, Prospect, Searsmont, and Thorndike.
