I am looking for the birthdate for William Henry DOBBS and ANY info on the family of Sarah
Most of my information has come from census's and William's pension papers.
William Dobbs was born sometime around 1830 in the State of New York
(pension records are wrinkled over the birthdate on William's C.W. app.)
Sarah Jane Newman was born in New York with the year of birth as follow:
1860 census is abt 1832 (Coldsprings,Phillipstown, P.O.Lake Mahopac)
1870 census is abt 1836 (New York, New York)
1880 census is abt 1841 (New York, New York)
They married 12 Dec 1853 in Phillipstown, NY (per Methodist Minister sworn statement)
There were 3 daughters and 3 sons born to this Union - All but the last one was born in
Coldsprings, NY. Their names are Henrietta, Georgiana, Leo, Edward, Lillian and Walter.
William died 8 Jan 1885 in New York and is buried in St.Michaels' Cmtry.,Astoria,
Williams Death cert. indicates his Fathers name is Abraham born in Albany and Mother
is Elizabeth born in Albany.
Family tradition says that Sarah Jane Newman is full blooded Indian but I have no
This is all of the information I have and would appreciate any and all information to
do with these two families. Thank you for even the smallest help.
