I am a descendent of Lorenda Laird(1834-1931). who was the daughter of George Laird and Winnifred Scarlett. Lorenda married Thomas Dobbyn. They had a son, George Dolsen Dobbyn.
G.D. had a son, Walter Eman Dobbyn. He was my grandfather. My dad was George Lyle Dobbyn.
Norine Wolfe wrote a Dobbyn Family History book back in the 90s. There is oodles of knowledge in it on all these families.
