Georgia Cousins

James M Dobbs and his first cousin Christine c. 1914

This is a photograph of my grandfather James M Dobbs and his first cousin Christine, daughter of Evan Prothro Dobbs and Margaret Hulda Hahr. Evan was a brother of my great-grandfather. Both James and his half-sister, Emita, lived with their uncle Evan when their father was traveling overseas. In fact, Emita spent practically all of her childhood living in the household of her cousins. Emita’s mother died shortly after returning home from four years in Chile. The person who sent me these pictures is the granddaughter of Emita Dobbs Smith.

Charlotte Christine Dobbs was born in 1895 making her seven years older than my grandfather. This picture was taken some time in the 1910s in Marietta, Georgia.
