The dates for many of the children are not accurate. They were probably reported by some one who did not know the exact ages of the children. William A. Bobbitt was born in August 1859, John L. Bobbitt was born in September 1861, and Joseph E. Bobbitt was born in November 1862.

Joseph E. Bobbitt married Carrie Austin who was born in 1876 in Missouri. She was the daughter of Thomas W. Austin and Sallie (Catterton) Austin. Joseph and Carrie had one child, a son born in November 1903, named Hugh Bobbitt.

Margaret and Missour Bobbitt, daughters of James and Sarah Bobbitt married Arthur Boney. Missouri Bobbitt married Arthur Boney first and had two children. They were named Herbert and Emily Boney. Missouri died and Arthur married Margaret Bobbitt who reared his two children. Emily Boney married Uel Dameron and died several years later during childbirth. Her child also died. Herbert Boney never married and had no family. He died in 1973 at the age of 80 years.

William Bobbitt son of Robert and Dicey, married Rachel or Buleah Kivett. (We are not certain if he married each or that Rachel and Bueleah were both part of her name.)
