Jane LeViness was born about 1728.

She was married to Abraham Dobbs (son of William Dobbs and Lea Van Wert) in 1749 in Dobbs Ferry, Westchester Co., NY.  Abraham Dobbs was born on 11 Apr 1730 in Dobbs Ferry, Westchester Co., NY.

...Abraham Dobbs, was born in Dobbs Ferry 4/11/1730, resided there, took over from his father the running of the ferry.  According to Bolton (Bolton's "history"), a Jeremiah Dobbs, former proprietor of the ferry, married Jane Levines and had two daughters and sons Jeremiah and Peter (who married Jenny LaForge ? see Leviness #5).  Descendants of the latter were still living in Greenburgh in Bolton's time.  There can be no doubt that Jeremiah was an error for Abraham.  In 1785 he was living in Hastings near the site of the present railroad station on part of the original leasehold of his father-in-law Amos Levines.
