Sometime between 1870 and 1880, Elijah Bobbitt and his family moved from Martin County to land he owned in Jackson Township in Greene County, Indiana. On April 6, 1880, Elijah Bobbitt died and was buried in the family cemetery of the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery and Baptist Church yard. Elijah had joined the church in 1854. He was a Mason and a farmer. Elijah died of Pneumonic fever and ten days later his son Columbus died of the same fever.
Melinda (Bobbitt) Sanders and her husband George moved to Pettis County, Missouri about 1873. They were listed in the census of 1880. In addition to her three children, Elmo, Fernon, and Ida May, she brought with her a brother, Oscar Bobbitt, who was 27 years of age in 1881. After his marriage in Pettis County, he settled and spent the rest of his life there.
No one seems to know what happened to Mary (Quick) Bobbitt. There is no marked grave for her at the family cemetery.
