I am searching for William Dobbs who died in Vernon County Wisconsin about 1929. He was born in Illinois or Tn , I think. His last children were born in 1867 (James Raymond Dobbs) and perhaps a few years later Emma Dobbs.. Not sure how he would be related here. am I missing something in this message??/
Was benjamin related to William Dobbs and if so in what way brother, son , or no relation.
Thank you.

This is my Dobbs line. You seem to have confused William Dobbs (b. 1807/1808 in Tennessee?, d. 1876 in Crawford Co.?, WI) with his son William (b. Nov. 9, 1844, d. July 15, 1929).

William (b. 1807/1808) was the father of James Raymond Dobbs (b. 1867), Emma Dobbs (b.abt. 1865) and Nona Dobbs. (b. abt. 1863) by his 2nd or 3rd wife. (I can not remember her name at the moment.) William's 1st wife was Mary Helm.

Have not been able to find out anything about William's parents or siblings.

Diane,

It's posible your William, b1807/8 was a sibling of Linsey Dobbs born 1808 in Benjamin TN. We haven't learned who his parents were as he was raised by his grandparents William Dye and Kizzah Dobbs. Hope this helps you in your search.

Was so glad to learn that James Dobbs' father was William Dobbs, who had married Mary Helm. I was so sure was same William, but no confirmation on that.I have James Dobbs death certificate. and Emmas obit. The only name for mother is Mary. Seems like every William Dobbs Married a Mary.
Thank you for lovely Christmas present of confirmation of William and Helm relationship and which William Dobbs was really James' father. Also thanks for siblings names. If you think of his wifes last name that would be great.

I think William Dobbs was married more then once. I know absolutely that he married a Mary (maiden name unknown) and that he had at least two children by her. One was Emma Dobbs b. about 1865 and James Raymond Dobbs b. 03/15/1867 in Richland County, Wisconsin. I have picture of James and Emma standing together. A deceased relative told me when she was very old that James had a half-brother Alexander Dobbs.
All children, but one are deceased, so anyone knowing this family would me helpful and very much appreciated.
