Many thanks for your replies.
Hannah Dobb was indeed Annie,confirmed in the 1920 census for Richmond Va.
Strange no record of Joseph Dobb birth around 1889 ,Beeston Notts area ?

Working through all these Dobb siblings who emigrated to the USA.
Could somebody help with the following--
Lottie May Dobb,born 1891 Walsall.Found a marriage to a Ernest William France in Plymouth in 1909.In 1923 Lottie May France arrived in the USA on the "Albania" with husband Ernest Rosier France,this is my Lottie as parent in record is Joseph Dobb with the right address,and born in Walsall.
I cannot find a record of their marriage,if indeed this is a different marriage to the Plymouth marriage ??
Several other USA records of Lottie May and Ernest ROSIER France.
Would appreciate any help.

Thanks for the reply Kloumann.
Ernest Rosier France's WW1 military record shows he married Lottie May Dobb in Plymouth,why middle name shown as William I don't know.
Of Joseph & Charlottes 8 children,6 followed him emigrating to the USA.
Another Sophia Dobb born 1896 died in 1897.
And the other ,May Dobb shown in the 1901 census as being born in 1888,I cannot find any record of.??

Thanks Kloumann.
Have been a bit dim there,although GRO record shows her birth as 1891,not 1888 as census.

Kloumann,ref your reply no 17 I have searched but cannot find any record in the 1891 census of his wife or three children.His declaration in that census that he is single and no family shown with him, all seems rather suspicious.
His grandfather a Joseph Dobbs was a bit of a lad, using an alias, Morton, and spending time in prison.

It was quite common for names to be left off the census if there were too many people living in a smallish property.
One of my ancestors did the same thing to avoid being re-housed.
