Mary, Thanks for the offer, but Dobkins research is a sideline for me. The Rachel Karns who married the younger Jacob Dobkins in 1832 was a sister of my G-G-grandfather, George S. Karns. My interest in the Dobkins family is mainly to trace Rachel's descendants. I was posting the information I had found to the new Dobkins message-board in an effort to help others. Thanks again for your kind offer of help.
