Anderson W. Bobbitt married Elizabeth M. Mallory on March 9, 1841 in Grayson County, Virginia. There is no record of Anderson Bobbitt after the 1850 census in Howard County, Missouri. We believe that he died between 1850 and 1860. There is a deed recorded in Howard County of a land transfer between another party and Anderson W. Bobbitt and his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth was living with her family in 1860 in Daviess County, Missouri.

The grave of Robert L. Bobbitt is marked with a large monument of fine granite. The engraving on his monument is the work of a skilled craftsman which testifies to the prosperity of the family. Near his grave are two markers which are so weather beaten that they can no longer be read and are believed to be the graves of James and Rosanna Bobbitt. James and Rosanna were first cousins. James was the son of John and Sarah (Gibson) Bobbitt, a brother of Captain William Bobbitt. Rosanna Bobbitt was a daughter of Captain William Bobbitt and a sister of Robert L. Bobbitt. The family cemetery), is in a beautiful rolling valley of Carroll County, Virginia. From the cemetery), the old family home can be seen part of which is still standing. In almost a straight line is the town of Hillsville and in the cemetery there is the well marked grave of Second Lieutenant John Bobbitt of the Revolutionary War. His grave is marked with a bronze marker from the Veterans administration. Near by is the cemetery where Captain William Bobbitt is buried and his grave will be marked in the near future. A bronze plaque is also planned for the grave of Robert L. Bobbitt for his service in the War of 1812.
