Gee, what a nice surprise to find a Dollins forum! I've been looking everywhere for something on the Dollins Family, my mother-in-law is a Dollins.There has been some research done on her line, they descend from Richard Dollins who sailed from Wales to America in about 1732, my info. has him probably born in England. This Richard first settled in Goochland County, VA (now Buckingham County)in about 1740. He later moved to Orange County, VA then to Albermarle County, VA. His will was dated 1774 and listed his wife as Elizabeth with the following children: Ann, Presley, John & William. My husband's line is through Richard's son, Presley who married Ruth Alexander.

It is also believed that Richard had a brother, Presley who came with him to the U.S. Does anyone know any facts about this. Also does anyone know the maiden name of Richard's wife, Elizabeth?

I might add that Presley and family had moved to Lincoln County, TN by 1810. Some of these descendants ended up in Coryell County, TX in the late 1800s.
