Re: BERTHA MAE (DOBBINS) WALKER - ADDL INFO
In Response To: BERTHA MAE (DOBBINS) WALKER - ADDL INFO ()
Yes, for 1920. Ages are not exact. On the 1921 marriage record, her age is listed as 26 and Grandpa George's age is listed as 50. He was way older than 50. So I'm not trippin' on the ages too much.
Yes, for 1910. As someone else on Afrigeneas pointed out a couple of years ago, the grandmother's surname of McDonald could have been a corruption or misspelling of her 2nd married name, McDaniell. The fact that Bertha was enumerated in Attala County would have put her in close proximity to Grandpa George. It sounds like I'm assuming a lot, but there is a second elderly cousin in IL who claims to have more info on Dobbins relatives. She said she knows there were Dobbins relatives in our family and the name Bertha sounds familiar. I have not been able to speak with her yet. VERY frustrating. But she remembers my dad well. So I'm sure she has something to tell me that will help much. Can't wait to speak with her.
