             Biographical note 
             The Dobbins family consisted of: Joseph Dobbins, a builder in Northern Kentucky, particularly the Covington and Newport areas; Lawrence and Washington Berry, brothers from the Covington area; Sophia Buckner, also from Northern Kentucky; and John Hawkins Stevenson, a medical doctor practicing in the 1830s and 1840s. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             The Dobbins family papers are comprised of the papers of Joseph Dobbins. They include contracts, bills, receipts, and two account books. There is a letter from Lawrence Berry to Washington Berry about James Madison's and James Monroe's place in the political picture of 1808. Also included is a letter by Sophia Buckner. There are seven letters between A. E. Earle and his son, Frank Earl that described life on a southern plantation in 1865 and 1866. The Earl letters document conditions of the newly freed slaves, agricultural conditions, and comment on politics. There are also records of the Covington and Lexington Turnpike Company kept by L. Timberlake, Treasurer. Finally, the collection contains a notebook and some papers belonging to John Hawkins Stevenson on his medical studies and practice.
