From about 1885 until the present day, there was another family of Bobbitts living in Nuttall in Fayette County. This was the family of George and Abbie Bobbitt. The two families at one time knew each other, but could not establish their relationship to each other. Actually both families descended from the same ancestors back in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

One of the interesting families descending from George B. Bobbitt is the family of his son William E. Bobbitt.

William Elliott Bobbitt was born in Fayette, Fayette County, West Virginia on March 27, 1886. In 1904 William E. Bobbitt married Ida Belle Kincaid in Fayette County. They had five children, two boys and three girls.

Ida Leota Bobbitt wrote this about her family.

"We do not have much information handed down on our families as my grandmother Bobbitt died (October 31, 1909) before I was born. My mother died when I was one year old. My grandmother Kincaid raised me to seven and then she died. The children of the family were separated, Norma to Charleston, Roberta to Montgomery, Thomas to Charleston, and George to a family in what was then Beaverdam Virginia out of Ashland. My father, William Elliott Bobbitt remarried about a year later to Georgia Cannon from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. They had two children, Wanda Elizabeth Bobbitt and William Brown Bobbitt. Wanda is married to James Woodall and William B.  is married to Barbara..... They have two children, Camilla and Rebecca.

"Thomas Bobbitt married Adeline Simone and they have two children, sons, who live in New York City. George who is single and a policeman in Manhattan. Thomas who is married. Their father, my brother, Thomas Bobbitt Sr. lives on a 98 acre farm in Montpelier, Virginia.

"My Aunt Mona Bobbitt Jones who died in 1974 at the age of 86 was our last source of information from an older generation. Now there is no one left to ask."
