DOERR, DOR (Ger.) Descendant of Dorr, a form of Isidorus (gift of Isis); descendant of Dioro, a form of names beginning with Teuer (dear), as Diurard and Deorovald. Doerr/Duerr spelling is the anglecized version of Dor (umlaut over "o").

Our earliest known DOERR ancestors are Andrew and Christina Doerr. They emigrated from Usingen, Hesse-Nassau, Germany, in what was the Kingdom of Prussia in 1834. They travelled by ship to New Orleans, Louisiana, and then made their way up the Mississippi to Perry County, Missouri where they purchased land and raised a large family.
