William Bobbitt Senior was not listed in the tax lists of Franklin County in 1820, although he was listed in 1819. We think that his second wife died in 1820 and in 1821, William went to Raleigh, North Carolina to live with a married daughter. According to a Raleigh newspaper story, William died on June 6, 1825 in his 87th year. He is believed to have been buried in Oakwood Cemetery, but I have not been able to find a record or to find his marked grave.
Although much of the data and proof for William Bobbitt is missing, a reading of the family land deeds recorded in both Granville and Franklin counties will support much of what is written here.
