ELY BOBBITT 9 1841 Kentucky son of John W.
In 1851 John Bobbitt met and married Emaline Lile. They were married on August 3, 1851 in Kentucky and probably in Kenton County, although I have not found the marriage recorded outside of the family Bible records furnished to me by James T. Bobbit of Lovington, Illinois.
Emaline Lile Bobbit was born November 4, 1825 in Greencastle Kentucky, north of Bowling Green (Warren County).
From 1851 till about 1859, John and Emaline reared the younger children of John Bobbitt and during those years had five children of their own. In 1859 the talk of the war between the states had created many industries and jobs in Missouri. Many families of the east joined caravans and moved their families to various sections of Missouri. John and Emaline Bobbitt along with their family moved to Ralls County, Missouri.
The family was first counted in the 1860 census as living in Saline Township, Sydney Post Office. No one was counted with or near the family except John his wife Emeline, and their five children. The 1870 census is the most interesting.
