As a follow up to your post haemophellia is common within a certain line of the Hobbins family but I am surprised if it is in the line prior to those born before 1900.
The basis of this is that this handicap is an absence or reduction of the blood clotting agents and is genetically passed from a male sufferer via female offspring(who are carriers not sufferers) to their male offspring. Female offspring not affected.
My grandfather was a sufferer and my male cousins are also. This was passed through via my grandfathers daughters.
This indicates that my grandfathers mother was a carrier and she was Gertrude Julia Redman from London.
Interestingly, there are many Henry, George etc in my ancestry but they all basically remained in England and I am not aware of any direct line emigrants to USA>
