In my great-grandfather Andrew Silas Newton Dobson's autobiography, he mentions that Joseph Dobson was married to Mary Getty, who he thought was from Ireland. He says she died at age 92, but doesn't mention the year.
A document written by Andrew Silas Newton's brother, Harvey Dobson, says that Mary Getty was the granddaughter of Samuel Getty who owned the land on which Gettysberg PA is built. He doesn't mention Mary's parents, though. I think he was wrong in thinking that Joseph descended from a Dr. Joseph Dobson who came from London.
If you have any information on Joseph Dobson, either his dates, where he came from, or his parentage, I'll appreciate hearing from you.
Hope this helps a bit.
