My father's name was James Francis HOBBINS(1921-1987), named after his father,James Francis HOBBINS(1880/81 - 1942/43). James Francis HOBBINS, Sr. was a postman for the Philadelphia, PA post office at 30th st Station. He was married to Emma JAMES(1881). Emma had 2 children, Ruth b. 1909 and Richard b. 1911, from a first marriage to a Richard STEDMAN. 1920 PA Census has James Francis living with Emma, the two step-children and my father, age 9. I believe that my grandfather did have at least two sisters. At time of 1930 PA Census he was living with a sister & her husband(McNally), along with another sister. My mother thought there may also be a brother, possibly named Philip, who lived in New Jersey. James Francis HOBBINS, Sr.lived in Phila.,PA all his adult life, as far as I can tell, on or around 11th street or Brown street. Emma and children were still alive but living apart from James Francis, Sr. in 1930.
