Looking for any info on John And Amelia Dobyns or Dobbins in Spotsylvania Co. Va. I believe Amelia died in the 1890's but I cant find anything on John...moved dead etc. He had a son named George H. Dobbins, my great grandfather. Anything will help. Thank you

I am confused. I look at your tree:

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/53735358/person/13560217361

and you have a 1905 year of death for John Dobyns who is married to an Amelia Chewning. It looks like you do not have a date of death for Amelia.

Do you have more than one John Dobyn and Amelia? If so I would post a link to their page in your tree so responders to your post do not redo the work you have already done.

Your message to me today:
I can't find any info at all on Amelia and John that's concrete. If you have anything that would help I would appreciate it. Thank you

Here is the link to Amelia's obituary in response to another one of your postings:

Here is the link to a FindAGrave listing for John H. Dobyns:

You have a lot of this information in your tree here:

So, I am still confused why you say you have nothing definitive.
