There were more than enough Dockerys to keep me busy. At least, there were several more than those I had already unearthed.
As if that weren’t enough, I continued down that Google path and found a free site where volunteers transcribe historic newspapers, and located the funeral information for Charles and Agnes Dockery’s father Michael, further confirming some relationships.
Instead of wandering about the pages and pages of Google findings, I don’t know why it hadn’t occurred to me first to go straight to that reliable source, Find A Grave, to check out these family relationships. Perhaps the meandering mood evolved from having started down this bunny trail as a mere quirk: the inability to resist the temptation to piece together someone’s roots, even if they weren’t my own.
