Your response is much appreciated...leads that might help me track down more info about this family. The Dormers are not in my ancestry, but their daughter Mary and her husband, Winfield S. Fritz, who was from the are, we're murdered in the wilds of southern Arizona with my 3rd great uncle in 1884. Communications from the time with the families in Schuylkill County have helped clarify some open questions...since most historical accounts didn't get it right...senseless deaths which made International news. Winfield worked for the Diamond Drill Company of Pottsville and his father was Supt of the St. Clair shaft before moving to Hazleton to work for Pardee. Martin Dormer, besides running a brewery in St. Clair, was a partner in several mining claims in the Arizona saga.
