Mr. Weaver,
...and I thank you for each bit of information, regardless of how small or large. I am aware of both Dobkins cemeteries in Crawford County, having stood among the graves of my ancestors in both of them. My grandfather's great-great grandfather and his family were the first owners of that property, and the old family homestead was there. My own grandfather grew up there. I have photos of the stones there, which are old family members, and the old stones are beginning to disintegrate. Now we and others are managing to repair some of them which would be shame to replace. When I was a little girl, I went swimming in the creek that runs past the old home place. But one of the early family members inheirited the place, or built on a land grant, and the men I am searching for (Evan especially) must have been buried in other cemeteries. I do thank you for anything you find, and am more than happy to be of help to you when I can. I assume you have photos and all, of William Calloway Dobkins and the cemetery where Alexander is buried, etc.--and maps of the land grants, etc.? If not,perhaps I could make some photo copies for you, but would require some sort of address to which to send them. I would not post my own address on such a widely used website, but my email is posted if you care to send an address where I could send any you do not have. I am sure there is some info on the land grants for Alexander, and the one or two family photos. Beth
