From Declarations of Intention for Naturalization, Pickaway Co., OH
DASRING, Arnold - 10-9-1860 - age 25 - Native of Hessen, Germany - Emigrated 5-1-1853 from Hessen Cassel - Arrived New York 6-3-1853

Obituary from Pickaway Co., OH Democrat Watchman, 7 Mar 1890:
In Circleville, 22d ult., Arnold Doering, in his 61st year. He was born in Germany, Swartzenberg, Kurkessen, December 9th, 1830, and came to this country with his parents in 1853.

Balthe listed above is in the Jun 1860 census as Waldon or Valdon Doring. He appears to be the husband of Mary E. with 2 children: Mary E, b. Nov 1858 and Rose F, b 1859. I have not yet found the marriage record, though. Also in the household is Arnold and Christian. Balthe's wife, Mary E, married Michael Blank on 8 Apr 1866, so Balthe died between Jun 1860 and Apr 1866. After Michael died she married John Hartman. By the 1870 census, Balthe & Mary's 3rd daughter is listed, Matilda "Tillie" F Doering, b Nov 1860.

John Henry Doering m. Eva Catherine Horn before 1861 per 1880 census. Children: Louisa A., b 1861; Martha S., b 23 Oct 1864, d. 11 Jan 1945 m. Daniel Eitel 21 Jan 1900; Chrissie, b 1867; George W. b 1868; Mary C. b 17 Sep 1868, d 1937; William H. b 27 Dec 1871 in Pickaway Co., OH, d 9 Sep 1944 Fairfield Co., OH, m. Nancy Rosella Bowman 1895; Harry b. 1874; John, b 27 Jan 1875; Elmer Joseph, b Feb 1877, m. Cora A Jennings 10 Jan 1901; Clara B, b 9 Dec 1878, d 15 Aug 1938, m Fred Eitel.

I haven't done a lot of research on Eva Catherine Horn. The 1910 census indicates she immigrated in 1854 and the Reber Hill Cemetery records indicate her birth date was 25 Feb 1839.

I am still piecing together these Doerings. I would really like to find out the real given name for Balthe/Waldon. Let me know if you have questions or if you would like more descendant info. I'll see what I can dig up on Eva Catherine, too.
