Marsha Berry published the following in a message base on another web site. It is about her book but it also pertains to this web site.
"The Marsha Berry book, published in 2009, is not an extention of the
John W. Bobbitt book. There is no Wales Bobbitt or Sturdivant in this book.
This book is about Marsha Berry's Putnam County, Illinois great grandmother Ida Belle Bobbitt who married Franklin Pierce Funk and Ida Belle Bobbitt's ancestory, based on Ida's father William W. Bobbitt and grandfather Isham Drury Bobbitt Junior's family Bible and our other British heritage family heirlooms from Suffolk County, England. As I was present, my Bobbitt family in Illinois had tea each day at 4 pm and other very Suffolk County, England traditions.
May this author note my Putnam County, Illinois Bobbitt immigrant ancestor is not from Wales and did not marry a Sturdivant as on the internet there are 3 versions of this story, and that is what it is, stories. Two researchers deceived author John W. Bobbitt about the Wales and Sturdivant stories and John W. Bobbitt on his own never found a Wales Bobbitt and Sturdivant. Read his book. Also 1500s to 1900s All Bobbitt and Variations National Burial Index England and Wales CDs No Wales Bobbitt or Sturdivant.
Because of the influence of 2 researchers author John W. Bobbitt tried to make all USA Bobbitt into one family but it does not work as proven by various male Bobbitt DNA test results. The Massachusetts Bobbitts are not related to the Virginia Bobbitts. My male Bobbitt tester did my direct Bobbitt line DNA test and I have the results. I am related to Keith Bobbitt, Stephen Bobbitt and Rosser Bobbitt. The author John W. Bobbitt did a male Bobbitt DNA test and he is not related to me. The author John W. Bobbitt is related to Elle Eddy, Susan Schumaker, and Jan Babbitt.
If you mix the Wales Bobbitt and Sturdivant with my Suffolk County, England William Bobbet born and christened 12 August 1647 Saint Mary, Woodbridge, Suffolk, England, it is a false genealogy. My chr date is from the extracted parish register in Woodbridge, Batch No C063252, film No 0919635 Film Salt Lake City Utah Family History Library, which matches my Bobbitt Bible.
My immigrant ancestor William Bobbet, John Skinner and Abraham Estes, left Felixstowe, Suffolk, England on the flyboat Martha, 1673 Will of Shipmaster Abraham Wheeler, late October 1673 and arrived early Jan 1674 in City Point, Charles City, Virginia. William Bobbet Feb 1674 married adjacent neighbor Elizabeth Whittington, daughter of Francis and Elizabeth Effie Whittington, 1673 land grant, note name Francis Whittington.
William Bobbet died and was buried after his Will and land sale 18 June 1712 in the south side of Jones Hole Swamp, Surry, Virginia with other tobacco farmers such as Thomas Wynne, etc. William's wife Elizabeth is buried beside her husband.
This book can be purchased BYU Bookstore, books, Y Mountain Press, Print on Demand, for $19.95 for the paperback book plus a color pdf CD."

Found February 15, 2012 - Rickey Bobbitt
This from Rickey Bobbitt who found a DNA match with two people of the Balanta tribe. Congratulations to Rickey. FamilyTreeDNA. Rickey is on Facebook.
The Balanta (same spelling in Guinea-Bissau Creole and Portuguese, balante in French transliteration), meaning literally "those who resist", are an ethnic group found in Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, and Gambia. They are the largest ethnic group of Guinea-Bissau, representing more than one-quarter of the population. But despite their numbers, they have remained outside the colonial and postcolonial state because of their social organization. The Balanta can be divided into four subgroups, (three of which are Balanta Kentohe, Balanta Ganja, and Balanta Brassa) the largest of which are the Balanta Brassa.Archaeologists believe that the people who became the Balanta migrated to present-day Guinea-Bissau in small groups between the tenth and fourteenth century C.E. During the nineteenth century they spread throughout the area that is presently Guinea-Bissau and southern Senegal in order to resist the expansion of the Kaabu kingdom. Oral tradition amongst the Balanta has it that they migrated westward from the area that is now Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia to escape drought and wars. Today, the Balanta are mostly found in the south and central regions of Guinea-Bissau.CultureAll important decisions amongst the Balanta are taken by a Council of Elders. To become a member of the Council of Elders, the person has to be initiated during the Fanado ceremony. In general, egalitarianism prevails amongst the Balanta. Consequently, the Portuguese colonialists found it difficult to govern them. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century’s, Portugal mounted pacification campaigns against the resistant Balanta and subjected them to appointed Fulbe chiefs. Because of the Portuguese repression, the Balanta enlisted as soldiers in great numbers and were principal supporters of the PAIGC in the nationalist struggle for liberation during the 1960s and 1970s. Many Balanta resented their exclusion from the government; their prominence in the military spurred a series of Balanta-led coup attempts in the 1980s.
I was perusing some files from my hard drive and found this link
There are photos, research information, and links on this page from an older Bobbitt web site that are irreplaceable. Vickie L.'s cemetery photos, Max Lincoln Bobbitt's cemetery books, Judy Schubert's group sheets, Arlene Hansens's research information, and many others. Chird Bobbitt's Dyer, TN cemetery photos are outstanding. I am particularly fond of Vickie L's cemetery photos from Orange County, Indiana. Thanks to all the people who participated.
Retired EVSC teacher/technologist. Interest in Bobbitt and Babbitt genealogy. Enjoy crappie and bass fishing, old cars, trains and social media.
This site was first put online in 1983. It has been a fun 29 years. A big 'Thank You' goes out to everyone who has participated in this endeavor. Remember the names Gary Barr, Brian Bobbitt, and a very special name... Marsha Berry. Do not forget the pioneers... Alan Wade Mount, Sr., Joseph Rosser Bobbitt III, John W. Bobbitt and Marsha Berry Research with Dr. Amy Harris and several of her students. Also, Eileen Sears who made many trips to the libraries and researched the name Bobbitt and Babbitt.
If two or more people do not have the same DNA results, then none of their ancestors can be the same. It is a great tool to help guide a genealogist.
A person can not borrow another person's lineage either in part or in whole.
Marsha Berry is still researching families of all surnames.

NEWS FOR BOBBITT AND BABBITT FAMILIES
Marsha Berry and Eileen Sears found the parents and grandparents of Edward Bobet or Edwardus Bobbet who died in Taunton, Bristol, Massachusetts, 25 Jun 1675 and was born in Docking, Norfolk, England, 09 Apr 1627. See the research at the link below or click here. This research will affect several Bobbitt family members who have just recently learned of their connection to Edward Bobet or Edwardus Bobbet and all members of the Babbitt family.
May 21, 2011
Another 'Big One' From Marsha Berry Research. I personally think this is the Bobbitt - Babbitt research of the century and the last century. People have been looking for the parents and grandparents of Edwardus Bobbet for years and years. This research also connects the Bobbitt family with the Babbitt family. -- Keith Bobbitt
"We have successfully crossed the pond for the Massachusetts Edward
Babbitt/Bobet/Bobbett, who is Edwardus Bobbet baptised 9 April 1627 in Docking,
Norfolk, England, whose parents are Thomae Bobbett and Elizabethe.
We have the father Thomae Bobbett baptised 25 Oct 1584 in Coney Weston, Suffolk, England, son of Thomas Bobbett and Anna.
And, we have the grandfather Thomas Bobbett with the 1624 Coney Weston Will. We know Thomas married 2 times, one to Anna who is the direct line and two to Faith Goode. We know Anna was buried 8 Jun 1591, two years after Thomas's brother Edmund's baptism 25 Apr 1589." -- Marsha Berry
Congratulations to Marsha Berry and her research team.

Tony Witts Genealogy Chart And Pictures
Hello Massachusetts, U.S.A. And The Babbitt Branch
This is a huge, HUGE genealogy find that will necessitate the changing and re-writing of many Bobbitt/Babbitt pedigrees. John W. Bobbitt, author of "The Bobbitt Family In America" had a DNA test that matched Susan Maxwell Bobbitt-Schumaker, Elle Eddy, and Raymond Babbitt. The DNA test combined with Marsha Berry's paper trail research showed the direction of John's pedigree has changed from that written in his book.
Study this research very carefully and be prepared to re-write Bobbitt and Babbitt family history. Your pedigree may or may not be affected. Please do not "borrow" another person's pedigree. Do your own research. Get help if necessary. A good start to finding your pedigree is a DNA test.
A Major, Major Find And Announcement By Marsha Berry Research
Marsha Berry Research has found the pedigrees for Susan Maxwell Bobbitt-Schumaker, Elle Eddy and John W. Bobbitt as being of the Massachusetts Babbitt line. These three lineages go back to Edward Bobet, the immigrant ancestor for this line. The findings change the information in the book "The Bobbitt Family In America" by John W. Bobbitt. Many people will need to change their pedigrees because of the new information. Study this information very carefully.
Now, more than ever before, anyone who is serious about their lineages needs to take a DNA test. If your pedigree is branched off the pedigree of John W. Bobbitt, you will need to re-examine your information.
This research shows the connection between the Bobbitt and Babbitt families.
