Re: James L. Dobbins Family - New York

I checked my Dobbins line from the South of Ireland. No Southern Irish and Northern Irish in those days. All ended up in Missouri. No New York.

I did keep seeing Dobbins based out in Illinois and Kansas for when I was trying to research James' father popping up in my hints, but thank you for checking!

I also spoke to my relative and they said that the only thing they were able to go off of was this manifest of James entering New York at at 13. Given his birth year it'd be between 1835 to 1840 that I have. I had also found a Census from 1900 in his hometown saying he arrived in 1848, but I also know those can be estimates. Sorry for the potato quality, had to meet the file size requirements.
