1. Don't know where my paternal gfather George Walker is buried. He is found on the 1880, 1900, 1910 MS censuses with first wife Sarah. Not found in 1870 or 1920 at all. Found on 1930 census in Kankakee, IL, working as a laborer for a private family. He most likely died in Cook County's Oak Forest Hospital from TB in 1933. I'm still waiting on research results regarding a burial permit for him. No death cert has ever been found in IL for him.
2. Don't know his mother's name, just she was black & born in VA.
4.Don't know which Bertha Dobbins found on any census was paternal gmother. Her death cert has little or no info. She died in 1928 at age between 28 & 32 and is buried in Hinds County, MS.
5. Don't know any names of her parents or relatives.
1. Found GEORGE WALKER's slaveholder, Jarrett P. Walker in Attala Co., MS.
Have identified LUCRETIA's slaveholder as JACOB SISTRUNK. Still working to identify possible slaveholder for ALFRED DOBBINS, born in SC about 1842. He is found only in the 1880 census, and have no death date for him. The 1920 census identifies LUCRETIA as a widow. SC Archives found no wills or court documents in Newberry Co., SC that mentions a male slave named AL or ALFRED. In fact, they said they found NO Dobbins wills at all. What happened to the slave owners in that county?
Need some suggestions as to how to continue research on ALFRED DOBBINS. Thanks!
