"Sarah moss of Granville County, Executrix of William Moss, deceased, sold to William Johnson, one negro, pursuant to court order of May 11, 1762 to sell so much as possible to satisfy debts. Witnesses: Miles Bobbett, Priscilla Johnson."
Miles Bobbitt had six daughters, and Sarah Moss is believed to have been one and Priscilla Johnson is also believed have been one. Miles Bobbitt did not appear in court very many times for any reason. He sold and purchased very little and the legal transactions for him are few in comparison to other Bobbitt men of the area. Miles was poor, worked hard, was a private person, who supported and reared a large family.
