I really appreciate you doing this. I found information about my Great, Great Grandfather and Great, Great Grandmother on this page. They are Henderson Mitchell and Jane Dobison. I also got the names of Jane’s parents (or possibly grandparents) from this page. They are George Dobison and Easter Dobison. The spelling is my perception. I cannot figure out how that last name is spelled (Dobison, Dolerson). Thank you so much!
Glad the blog is helpful. (It’s Dolison/Dollison, by the way. 🙂 )
