I am trying to test out a theory. On 1910 PA Census Miracode
there is the following:
Head of household: James HOBBINS(29)b.PA Parents: IRE.
Wife: Elizabeth (38) b. PA
Brother: John HOBBINS(28)b.PA Parents:IRE
Sister in law: Carrie HOBBINS(29)b.GER Parents:GER
Mother: Julia DORSEY (64)widow; b. IRE Parents: IRE
Stepsister: Anna DORSEY (19) b. PA Parents: IRE
Stepsister: Mame DORSEY (17) b. PA Parents:IRE
I have found a Michael HOBBINS with a Julia Hobbins listed as widow. There is a Civil War Pension Index for him
"invalid" June 6, 1876
widow (Julia): Nov.14,1884
"minor":March13,1895 Victor Levin, Guardian
Don't know if these are application dates or certification dates. The Phila. 1890 city directory has a Julia DORSEY as widow of Michael HOBBINS. 1930 PA Census finds my grandfather James HOBBINS,Sr(married age50)listed as brother in law in Phila. w/ John Mc Phillip(36 b.PA; parents Scotland) as head of household; wife Anna(39); sister in law Mame(single age37)with a last name crossed out that looks like Dorsey and Paul HOBBINS(nephew age 14 b. PA; father:PA,mother:IRE). I can not find a Paul Hobbins on any state's census that fits with his age in 1920. I'm assuming that these are the same Anna & Mame from 1910 Census. 1930 my grandpop is still married to Emma Hobbins, nee JAMES but I know that he did not always live with them. Grandpop does appear w/ her (& her 2 kids from a prior marriage)on 1920 PA census although there's a wrong (George)first name for him. My father was b. 5/27/1921.
Does anyone have any info that correlates with this in their famliy?
