I am your distant cousin. I have been trying to get a hold of you for some time; your name came up from my Aunt, Hazel Simpson in Washington State (who you may or may not have heard-of).
I am related from Thomas David Dobbin the diver through Sarah, his oldest child who married James Quirk of St John's,in whose home David Dobbin died. I remember my grandfather talking about his grandfather, Davy Dobbin the Diver, when I was a child; my grandfather remembered him well. James and Sarah Quirk second child was James Quirk (3rd) b. 1-9-80 d. Oct, 1956). James Quirk and wife Anna had four children. The third child was my mother, Mary (aka Bernice) who married Arnold Lowe. My mother was born 1-7-15, d-1993). The oldest child of James and Anna Quirk was Sarah, then Richard, then James Quirk 4th who died as an infant, then Mary (aka Bernice), then Loretta (aka Hazel). I was born March 17, 1942 and am now 70. If you would please contact me I would like to share information with you.
