Harris Bobbitt:

                                                                        1 slave

The 1800 census records the entire family of Stephen Bobbitt, with the exception of Seley Bobbitt who was born in 1801. The Children of Stephen and Celah Bobbitt who lived to maturity were:

Harris Bobbitt           born 1775

Arthur Bobbitt           born 1776 

Mary Bobbitt             born 1780 

Stephen Bobbitt, Jr.   born 1785

Drury R. Bobbitt       born 1786 

Nancy Bobbitt           born 1790

Amy Bobbitt              born 1792

John R. Bobbitt         born 1799 

Seley Bobbitt             born 1801

Apparently there were several children who did not live to maturity. One son born before 1790 must have died, as one son and two daughters were born after the 1790 census.  Most of the children married in Warren County and their marriages are recorded.
