February 15 to 23, & March 7, 2007: There is still a conflict with a couple of the names of the people above.
However, they appear to be:
Back row, l to r: Probably Henry Longfellow Dobie, Isabella Jane Anderson (Dobie) Boyd (this is a pasted-in photo as she had moved to South Africa before the photo was taken), Janet Paterson (Dobie) Byers, James Alexander Dobie, and John Archibald Dobie.
Middle row, l to r: Mary Margaret Dobie, Alexander Dobie, and Janet (Sloan) Dobie.
Front: Probably Robert Flint Dobie.
The conflict in identification is between the two youngest sons
Michael Cooke says: "Since sending the photo I have discovered that the lady in the middle at the back is Janet P. Dobie. I always assumed the the lady sitting on the left would Isabella, the oldest daughter, but agree it could be Mary. However, I don't believe the young man in the front is Robert. Henry L. Dobie was the youngest of the family and the chap in the front looks the youngest. I also have a picture of Robert as an older man and he looks more like the man as indicated. My mother, although only 11 when Henry died, is also sure he is the one in the front. She used to help him on his milk rounds on occasions."
