In 1976, Stacy Brown wrote, "I am Stacy Brown, son of E. L. Brown who purchased the Old Bobbitt-Stratton farm from Maggie Curry Stratton, where Liberty Cemetery is located. It had been left to the ages. The cemetery has recently been cleaned and eight stones have been reset. I have helped to move four bodies to other cemeteries before the year of 1935. Now buried in the cemetery is, Dudley J. Bobbitt 1838-1903, his wife, Susan (Stratton) Bobbitt 1848-1925. They had nine children, Alice Kegt, Elizabeth Cullen, Charlotte Brown (my mother), Mary Lechliter, Norman Bobbitt, George Bobbitt, Maude Bobbitt, Earl Bobbitt.

"As for now, only one plot with one stone marks the grave of Julia Bobbitt 1884. R. W. Bobbitt must be a brother of Dudley Bobbitt, I have heard the names many times. I am 79 years of age. Hope this will help." Stacy Brown.

Some of those moved from the cemetery were moved to Auburn, Nebraska. It was difficult to tell from Mr. Brown's letter exactly who was moved from the cemetery.

There are numerous descendants of this family who have lived in Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Colorado, and are living in these states today.
