1911 Photograph of Brothers Frederick Webber Dooe and Walter Colwell Dooe of Saint John, New Brunswick

June 29, 1911 photograph of brothers Frederick Webber Dooe and Walter Colwell Dooe, taken by the Isaac Erb & Son studio of Saint John, New Brunswick.

From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions requested]

Frederick Webber Dooe was born June 29, 1901 and Walter Alphonso Colwell Dooe November 12, 1903, both at Saint John, New Brunswick.  Their parents were Richmond Dooe and Annie Estella (Webber) Dooe.   Both brothers became citizens of the United States.

In the mid 1920s, the brothers emigrated to Massachusetts.  By 1930, they were living with their Aunt Jane at Cambridge, Massachusetts; Frederick was an accountant at a savings bank, and Walter was a supervisor at the rubber plant.

On November 12, 1938 at New Sweden, Maine, Frederick, an accountant, married Olga Mildred Carolina Osell, who was born November 28, 1904 at New Sweden, Maine, daughter of Olof Jonasson Osell and Margareta Karolina Axelldotter (Hogstrom) Osell.  The 1940 Census shows Frederick and Olga living at Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Frederick died in 1970.

On June 26, 1939 at Montreal, Quebec, Walter married Florence Isabel Henry.  She was born at Saint John, New Brunswick, on September 30, 1901.  The 1940 Census reveals that Walter and Florence were living at Portland, Maine, with Walter working as the manager of the furniture department at a department store, and Florence was working as a graphic artist at a department store, perhaps the same store.  Walter died in 1964.
