5b.  1880 Census (indexed at FamilySearch.org; page image online at Ancestry.com, Image #12 of 42):  612 Main Street, Wheeling, Ohio Co., WV, Roll 1410, p. 175D, PN 12, SD 1, ED 106, enumerated 8 Jun 1880, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1880 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

This enumerator's handwriting is appalling.  If the birthplaces are correct, it appears Sophy ELIE? is Dora's mother (and Dora's maiden name would then be ELIE, or whatever the name is that the enumerator scrawled).

8.  A search at Genealogy.com for Adam EHLIG/ELIG shows an immigration record in their Germans to America, 1850-1874 database, which is available on CD or via online subscription, but I don't have either one.
