Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I do a private research on the life of Sarah Ann Dobbs who was born 1839 and lived at the White Hart Inn, Beaufort Square, Chepstow, Wales, which was owned by her parents James and Elizabeth Dobbs. Her oldest brother James Dobbs was a well known so called "four in hand coacher" in Chepstow. Sarah married Henry Poolly Cooper (a native of Chepstow, too) and immigrated around 1868 to the USA. She first lived with her family in New York, then in Kansas and died 1925 in Denver, Colorado, USA. Her husband worked as attorney but they also owned a farm in Kansas. Henry Poolly Cooper had two daughters Charlotte Elizabeth and Ellen Mary Cooper.
Every information regarding the Dobbs and Cooper family and of the White Hart Inn, especially old photos are highly appreciated and welcome.
Thanks and regards, Rebecca
