Randolph is not mentioned and we know that he was not 16 years of age in 1767. We also know that he was living with his mother, and that she was head of her own household since the death of her husband in 1761. She has with her the negro Joe who was left to her by the will of James Bobbitt.
This list of tithables places the birth of Randolph Bobbitt in the year of 1752 and tells us that Randolph was only nine years of age when his father died. From the records it is apparent that the youngest child was Mary Bobbitt probably born in 1753 or 1754.
Dinah Bobbitt Jennings, and Ann Bobbitt Henson were married at the time of the will in 1761. Both of these daughters were older and by the time of the list of tithables were living in Grayson county Virginia. Here is a calculated list of the ages of the eight children of James and Elizabeth Bobbitt.Dinah Bobbitt born 1739 Ann Bobbitt born 1741 John Bobbitt born 1742 William Bobbitt born 1744 Livisa Bobbitt born 1746 James Bobbitt Junior born 1748 Randolph Bobbitt born 1752 Mary Bobbitt born 1754
