As you know your Fortunatus Dobbs
was in both Cobb and Cherokee Counties
before he moved later to Haralson.
In the Cobb County census he was
listed as F. N. Dobbs.
I do not know who his parents were
but he was likely a grandson of old
Fortunatus Dobbs who participated
in the American Revolution from
Spartenburg Co., SC and was in
Abbeville Co., SC by 1790 and who
probably died there around 1797.
Much erroneous information has been
published on him but the facts are
clear on his revolutionary service.

Nice to hear from you. My computer has been
down for several weeks, so pardon my delay
in responding. As a genealogist for some
38 years, I have learned that it is best to
prove one generation at a time as we go back.
In our case, we cannot prove a connection to
Fortunatus Dobbs. We go back to Lott Dobbs
and there is fairly strong evidence today that he was the son of a John Dobbs who came
down from North Carolina to SC around 1785 and moved over into Wilkes Co., GA by 1787.
He was still there when Elbert County was
formed from Wilkes in 1790 and probably died
in Elbert about 1795. Though many have tried
to connect us to Fortunatus, I have found no
significant evidence which supports it.
I am glad you got to visit the graves of
David Washington Dobbs and wife at Little
River. I have been there a number of times.

RL Guffin,

I am hoping you may have information that I need to further my search on my branch of the Dobbs family.

I am looking for the parents of Linzy Dobbs. He was born in Bedford, County Tennessee around 1810. He was raised by his grandparents - William and Kiziah Dobbs.

After his Grandfather died he traveled by covered wagon with his family to Drury, Missouri. They were accompanied by a family named Golden.

Linzy was married to a Piety Evans and they had 13 children. Linzy and 5 of his sons fought in the Civil War. Linzy contacted small pox and died around 1865.

I have several cousins trying to trace this branch and they concluded that our original branch started from Fortunatus Dobbs who came here from Ireland in 1755.

Do you have any information on the Dobbs Book and where I might get a copy. I have asked others and have been told it is no longer in print therefore no one is able to get a copy. Seems there must be someone willing to assist with information from the book.

Would appreciate any assistance you can give me.

You may E-Mail me at Kiltsman@aol.com

Thanks again - Bonnie

I am a descendant of Fortunatus N. Dobbs through his son Thomas Union Dobbs. Fortunatus is buried in the cemetery of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Felton, Haralson Co., GA. His tombstone says he was born in 1805. His son Thomas U. served in the Civil War. I know many stories about his experiences in the war through my great aunt, his granddaughter. Thomas U. is buried in the same cemetery.

Hi Julie,
I would love to hear your stories about Thomas U's wartime experiences. He is my great great grandfather through his son John William Fortunatus Dobbs. I'm sure other relatives would like to hear the stories, too. Would you post them here? Thanks so much.
