Joseph W Dobson & Mary P Burns
born June 16, 1834 in North Carolina to the parents of John F and Elizabeth Dobson. The
first records I have of him is from the 1950 census. He was living in Carroll, Georgia not
to far from his future wife Mary P Burns. Mary was the daughter of Benjamin C and
Nancy Burns. Benjamin C Burns owned a large farm in Georgia. It had a $2500 value in 1850.
I have not been able to find where or when Joseph and Mary were married. Their first child George W. was born in Arkansas around 1857 so I'm guessing they were married around 1855 or 1856. Joseph moved to Arkansas with the Mary's family between 1950 & 1957.
On July 1, 1859 Joseph applied for a land patent in Arkansas. He purchased 237 acres in
Joseph enlisted as a private in Co. C, 6th Arkansas Cavalry, at Washington,
Arkansas, May 15, 1862. he was detailed as teamster on December 24, 1862, on April 30,
1863 he was detailed as wagoner and on June 30, 1863 he was detailed as teamster again.
