I am amazed at how many Dollins' there are.Here in So. Calif where I live there aren't too many.It is my understanding that my father John Joseph, who was born 12/24/18 came from Chicago. His father was Cornelius Benjamin and they moved from Chicago to Glendale, CA where I was born, around 1920.
My Dad had an older brother I only knew as "Bud", a younger sister Loretta and a younger brother Paul who was killed at the end of WWII when the US Navy Cruiser USS Indianapolis as sunk.When my father was in HS, his father Cornelius disappeared and as far as I know was never seen again by my Dad's family.Cornelius had a brother Thomas that also lived here in So. California that was married to a woman named Esther (maiden name unk).They had one sone named Paul
I have no knowledge of my line of the Dollins family prior to Cornelius.Any info would be appreciated.
