THE BOBBITT FAMILY IN AMERICA
CENSUS OF 1850
are few positive records that members of our Bobbitt families lived in
Arkansas before 1845. The 1840 census lists only two families which might
be part of our family history. Lydia Bobbett with a large family in
Poinsett County, and likely the widow of Simpson1
Bobbitt of Maury County, Tennessee(NOT her
spouse). The other family was a Lewis Bobbett
living in Union County.
male 5 10 (1820-1825) 2 females
under 5 (1825-1830)
believe that Simpson1
Bobbitt and his wife left Tennessee about 1837 and shortly thereafter
Bobbitt either died or was killed. His wife Lydia Bobbitt (NOT) was counted in
the Poinsett County census of 1840.
1 male 10 - 15 (1825-1830)
1 female 10 - 15 (1825-1830)
was born in 1788, his wife
was born in 1790, married in 1814, not unusual for women of this time, and
their first child was a son born in 1815. By 1840 some of the girls and a
son or two were married and away from home. In any event we think that the
three families listed in the 1850 census of Greene County Arkansas are
descendants of Simpson and Lydia Bobbitt.There
is more work than theory to our conclusion. We have searched all the
records and cannot find any Bobbitt families which will account for these
families in Greene County. Furthermore these families and their
descendants live in this county to the present time.
