Dobson, Joseph & Elizabeth (Shields)
Looking for Joseph Dobson information. His wife was Elizabeth Shields. Their links before they were in Fulton County, Illinois, with their eight to ten (8-10) known children, are in Harrison Co., Indiana, where they married in 1829. Joseph Dobson was born 1805, Green County, Kentucky. Elizabeth was born 1811 in Indiana. Elizabeth was the fifth (5th of 10) child of Joseph and Martha (Veatch) Shields. Those known children are: William M., b. 1830; James V., b. 1836; John W., b. abt. 1838; Anna, b. 1840; Martin K., b. 1843; George W., b. 1845; Hardin, b.abt. 1850, and Winfield S. b.abt. 1853. Martha abt. 1859 and Ellen in 1842 may not be Joseph and Elizabeth Dobson's daughters. I have done lots of Illinois research, and have learned a fair amount about the first eight children's lives. I want to learn who were Joseph Dobson's parents and siblings.
Joseph Dobson and Elizabeth Shields are my 2nd great-grandparents. Contact: Sue Mendenhall, firstname.lastname@example.org
