FEDERAL CENSUS OF 1800

The 1800 census of South Carolina lists Bobbitt families who were from North Carolina.

SPARTENBURG COUNTY, DISTRICT 96:

                1 female 26 45 (1755-1774)

Isham Bobbitt was a son of John Richard and Amy (Alston) Bobbitt. He was born in May 1754 in North Carolina. Isham married Elizabeth James on October 13, 1774 in Halifax County, North Carolina. Isham was a soldier in the war of the Revolution. After the war Isham and his family moved to South Carolina. He lived in South Carolina from 1789 until 1803. He next moved to Christian County Kentucky. In 1827 Isham and several of his sons moved from Kentucky to Morgan County Illinois. Isham died in Morgan County in 1836.

Allen Bobbitt: 

1 male under 10 (1790-1800)    1 female 16 - 26 (1774-1784) 

1 male 16 - 26 (1774-1784)

Allen Bobbitt was a son of Isham and Elizabeth (James) Bobbitt. He was born in 1776 in North Carolina. His full name was Drury Allen Bobbitt. He married Mary Smith of South Carolina. Allen died in Christian County Kentucky in 1809.

EDGEFIELD COUNTY: 

William Bobbitt: 

2 males under 10 (1790-1800)            2 females under 10 (1790-1800) 

1 male 26 - 45 (1755-1784)                1 female 26 - 45 (1755-1774)

                                                                6 slaves

William Bobbitt was a brother of Isham Bobbitt. His wife was Susanna James, a sister of Elizabeth James. William was born in 1761 in North Carolina. For many years we have been unable to identify this William Bobbitt. In 1810 his family is in Chester County South Carolina. The confusion regarding this census record comes from the fact that William was counted in Anson County North Carolina early in 1800. We believe that he was counted again in Edgefield County late in the summer of 1800. Here is the family with the four youngest children. They were joined by their other children later in the year.
