Re: Dolby in NC and Ohio
In Response To: Dolby in NC and Ohio ()
I just today saw your message in my website Guestbook. Sorry for the delay in responding.
My source(s) for the Dolby information on the website was obtained from descendants of Wiley Dolby, a sibling of Arena/Irene/Rena Dolby, along with other records from county resources and websites.
One source for the parents of the Dolby children (Julius & Mary Dolby) is found in the 1860 census record for Jackson Twp. Pike County, Ohio. They are found as Julius & Mary Dalbey. Julius was born ca 1783 in NC, Mary ca 1797 in VA. And they are enumerated just above Willis Dolly (Wiley Dolby).
Are you familiar with Dolby descendants in and around the area of Champaign, Clark & Logan counties in Ohio?
I have seen Irene Dolby on Art Thomas' website, listed with parents and siblings, and I am very interested to know the source of those parents' names, as I have been unable to find that information anywhere else.
