Information on William Dobbins

From "Shenandoah Valley Pioneers and Their Descendants, A History of Frederick County, Virginia", by T. K. Cartmell:


There is a deed recorded in the County Clerk's Office dated 1746 from William Dobbins, for a lot of ground in Winchester, using this language: "South of Cork Street out towards Mr. Isaac Parkins residence and mill, upon which there is a stone house and other buildings, and the said Dobbins reserves a room in said stone house for his own use." This shows that Winchester had one stone house as early as 1746, and the Parkins mill was a landmark near the village that was slowly rising in the virgin forest.
