The Life and Times of Emmogene Wallace (Dobbs)

Updated December 17, 2011

About Our Family Research


My grandmother's birth certificate has her listed as Emma Jane Dobbs. She went by Emmogene and her maiden name was Wallace, as she took her stepfather's name but was never adopted by him. Her mother was Mary Dobbs Wallace, daughter of Don Felix Dobbs and Immogene VanVorst. Mary's mom died when she was only 4,leaving HUGE gaps in our family history. I have traced info back to a John Dobbs of Clio, Mi and have him quoted as saying, "I was named after my grandfather who founded Dobbs Ferry in New York." I cannot find the evidence to support this quote. I need more info on John Dobbs of Clio, Mi so I can find IF there is a connection to Dobbs Ferry, NY.
