Beth,
I'm sorry that I can't do much to repay the DOBKINS help you've posted. But now that I'm vaguely aware of which branch of the family you belong to, I do want to mention a couple of Cemeteries that are listed on the GNIS database. Both are located in eastern Crawford Co., MO. I've found no listings for them on the Web, and I assume they are very old, small, and probably deteriorated.

DODKIN CEM. - is located about 1 mile south of MO. Hwy. 8, on the east side of Huzzah Cr. GNIS gives the GPS co-ordinates as Latitude 375720N, Longitude 0911049W. The name spelling is one letter off, but we've seen that mistake before.

DOBKINS CEM. - is also located about 1 mile south of MO. Hwy. 8. This cemetery is just southwest of the Berryman community on a branch of Courtois Cr., and barely west of the Washington Co. line. GNIS gives the GPS co-ordinates as Latitude 375433N, Longitude 0910607W. It appears from GNIS maps that the first dirt/gravel road west of Courtois Cr. that heads south for about 1/2 mile would allow access to the cemetery.

I'm sorry if you were already aware of those cemeteries, but thought I should mention them...just in case! It never hurts to post obscure stuff that might help others, anyway. I can't say if there are still tombstones in either of those cemeteries, and maybe that's why there isn't much about them on the Web (yet). Thanks, and Good Luck
