A Craighead County Genealogist, Bob Couch, had put a Bobbitt tree online and I discovered it about June 2000. This set me off on the search again, I had not done any research for about 15 years. At that time I had only 1 1/2 pages in my tree, now look at it! The Craighead Co. tree has some duplications in it and is hard fo figure out. The 1870 Census for Craighead County has all Bobbitt's listed as Bobbert. The 1880 Census has not been published yet online.
My wife Janis Dyann Benton & I were born in White Co., AR, and attended the Searcy High School but since she is 6 years younger we never knew each other. I quit school after the 11th grade & joined the Air Force. I spent 4 years in, got out moved back home & went to work in Little Rock. I met Dyann while "crusing" with some friends one weekend in Searcy where she lived. She was in 12th grade so we dated and got married in June after she graduated and as they say, the rest is history. I spent only 2 1/2 years out of the service and went back into Air Force. We retired in1981 & moved back too Searcy and built our home. We raised 2 sons who upon graduation from ASU University and the ROTC program became career Army officers. Dyann works for Searcy Police Dept & I work for White County Government
