Great Grandfather, Andrew, was born in Durham, but his father, Taylor, was a native of Whitehaven, Cumberland.  

The line traces back to  John Dobbins, a soldier, born in  County Tyrone.   He married in St Bees and his travels as a soldier have been established, but a ten year gap in his children is a mystery still to be solved.  

Ethel, born 1906, was Andrew's only daughter from his first marriage.

This picture is reputedly of Andy and Tom Dobbins, the eldest two sons of Andrew Dobbins.  But who is the lady? Their own mother would have died before this date.  Can anyone help?
