Re: Dobbins and Walker - UPDATE

None of their slaves match age/gender for ALFRED DOBBINS born abt 1842 in SC. I'm turning back to MS.

Strangely, the 1817 will of JAMES DOBBINS, SR. in Newberry Co., SC makes no mention of any slaves. He only willed land, furniture and livestock and such to his son JAMES, JR. and the rest of the family.

I also "googled" ALLEN J. DOBBINS, SOUTH CAROLINA, and up popped a transcript entitled "Scotch-Irish Settlers in South Carolina, and Their Descendants in Maury County, Tennessee. By Hon. W. S. Fleming, Columbia, Tenn.

From The Scotch-Irish in America: Proceedings of the Scotch-Irish Congress at Columbia, Tennessee, May, 1889."

Only the DOBBINS surname is listed in the transcript of these proceedings. But at least now I know that the other former slave, A. DOBBINS, born abt 1840 in TN and his "issue" are related to the ones who wound up in MS. How exactly some of the slaveowners wound up in MS, I'm still working to find that out. Wagontrain, no doubt, though. I wish there was an index of wagontrains. Guess I'll go and "google" some more. Thanks, again, Ed.
