Right on ! John Dobell and 1880 Census, Mott age 29 (son of Jacob) was
John's nephew who lived with them in Van Etten. Sarah the grandmother died
1881. There were three (3) Mott Dobell's. John's son Mott was born 1871
his mother died shortly after his birth. Sarah held the family together, but
on her death, Mott was placed in guardianship, then Cyrus, and Hannah ( my
great grandmother). I am trying to figure out how they got to Delaware Co.
Cyrus (Cirus in census) married and lived in Cook Falls area. Have found
Dobell family in Roscoe, NY Cemetery, but not the right ones, but probably
kin. I do not know to much about the Keen family. There was a Joseph
Dobell in Colchester area also. Son of Cyrus ?
I have a photo of a Mott Dobell who lived in Middletown, Orange Co, he was a
RR man visited Elizabeth Hannah in Walton, NY. Are you referring to Alice
