Does the name DORSTE exist anywhere in New York. GG grandpa came to
Buffalo in mid-1850's, but his name does not appear anywhere except on a
declaration of intent. I can't find his marriage to Margaret Ellen
Bentzel there or church of attendance or anything so far. Can anyone
help he with suggestions of where to look further. Another gggrandfather
of same time period appears in a city directory.
More importantly - is DORSTE a likely name or could it be a variation of
something? Dorst seems to appear, but I don't see any connection with

Thank you.
