I am hoping you may have information that I need to further my search on my branch of the Dobbs family.
I am looking for the parents of Linzy Dobbs. He was born in Bedford, County Tennessee around 1810. He was raised by his grandparents - William and Kiziah Dobbs.
After his Grandfather died he traveled by covered wagon with his family to Drury, Missouri. They were accompanied by a family named Golden.
Linzy was married to a Piety Evans and they had 13 children. Linzy and 5 of his sons fought in the Civil War. Linzy contacted small pox and died around 1865.
I have several cousins trying to trace this branch and they concluded that our original branch started from Fortunatus Dobbs who came here from Ireland in 1755.
Do you have any information on the Dobbs Book and where I might get a copy. I have asked others and have been told it is no longer in print therefore no one is able to get a copy. Seems there must be someone willing to assist with information from the book.
Would appreciate any assistance you can give me.
You may E-Mail me at Kiltsman@aol.com
Thanks again - Bonnie
