EMSY SHOCK married to THOMAS DOBBINS
Posted by: S.Cotrill Date: December 04, 1999 at 12:20:03
  of 242

EMSY SHOCK WAS MARRIED TO THOMAS DOBBINS IN THE SUMMER OF 1873. THEY HAD THREE KIDS LISTED IN 1880 CENSUS OF ROANE COUNTY,WEST VIRGINIA.
THEY HAD CHARLES LISTED AS EIGHT YRS. OLD, AND MARTHA DOBBINS LISTED AS 7 YRS. OLD, AND A YOUNGER BROTHER ALONG WITH EMSY AND THOMAS DOBBINS.
MARTHA DOBBINS MARRIED MARION LEE COTTRILL IN GILMER COUNTY,WEST VIRGINIA ON DEC.31,1887. I HAVE CERTIFIED MARRIAGE LICENSE!!! MARTHA'S OLDER HALF BROTHER, THOMAS P.DOBBINS, SIGNED FOR HER TO GET MARRIED TO LEE COTTRILL BECAUSE SHE WAS UNDERAGE. SHE WAS 14 YRS.OLD BUT SAID SHE WAS 16 YRS. SO SHE COULD GET MARRIED BECAUSE SHE WAS PREGNANT. SHE HAD HER SON, ALFRED COTTRILL TWO WEEKS LATER, ON JAN.13,1888.
SHE WAS MARRIED BY DANIEL HUFFMAN!!

SHE HAD A SECOND CHILD, "ONIE COTTRILL" IN 1891. SHE DID NOT DIE. BUT MARTHA DOBBINS COTTRILL DIED FROM CHILDBIRTH!!!
I BELIEVE THAT HER OLDER HALF BROTHER THOMAS P. DOBBINS AND HIS WIFE NANCY COTTRILL, TOOK HER CHILD TO RAISE AS THEIR DAUGHTER,LINDA GAY DOBBINS.
I FOUND ONE DOBBINS FAMILY RESEARCHER WHO SAID THAT SHE IS A MEMBER OF HER FAMILY, BUT SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT HER EXCEPT THAT SHE WAS BORN IN THE 1870'S. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHICH COUNTY SHE WAS BORN IN???? AND WHERE AT??

LINDA WAS MARRIED TO KIRK ROLLYSON. I BELIEVE SHE WAS BORN IN JAUARY 1891. I BELIEVE THAT MARTHA DIED FROM CHILDBIRTH.

HER HUSBAND,MARION LEE COTTRILL,MARRIED LUCY KYER(KIER)ON FEB. 26,1891. SO,THAT ALFRED COULD HAVE A HOME.
LEE DIE A SHORT TIME LATER, THEN LUCY KYER MARRIED WILLIAM HENDERSON COTTRILL(LEE'S COUSIN) A FEW MONTHS LATER. (HAVE THEIR MARRIAGE LICENSE ALSO.) SHE RAISED HIM AS HER SON!!
I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SOLVE THIS FAMILY MYSTERY!!!! WHAT COUNTY DID SHE DIE IN???WHERE IS SHE BURIED AT??? WHAT DID SHE REALLY DIE FROM???? WHERE IS HER HUSBAND MARION LEE COTTRILL BURIED AT.??? IS HE BURIED WITH MARTHA IN THE SAME COUNTY.
WHAT COUNTY DID SHE HAVE HER TWO KIDS IN.???

PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP US OUT. NOBODY IN DOBBINS FAMILY AND COTTRILL FAMILY DON'T EVEN KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE TWO PEOPLE!!!!
