Notes for Harriet Burns:|
Nathaniel Dobbins and Harriet Burns are buried in the cemetery at Blue Eye Baptist Church. Many of their descendants moved to Texas. Their lives were simple and quiet like the Indian Legend of blue eye -- for it's spring fed creek that bubbled like a blue eye, deep, quiet, and cool. I believe that this line of Dobbins were part of the Scot Irish Presbyterians (1740's) that possibly first settled in the Mill Bridge Community which is classified as the "Cradle of Rowan County", North Carolina.
Some of the children listed for Harriet and Nathaniel do not biologically belong to them. It was mentioned at one point that they adopted some of the Dobbins niece's and nephews Which family and whose the exact children are, remains a mystery.
