From the census records we believe that there was six sons and only two daughters.
John Richard Bobbitt II born 1775
Rebecca Bobbitt born 1776
Lewis Charles Bobbitt born 1784
Sarah Bobbitt born 1790
William Bobbitt born 1791
Anthony Bobbitt born 1796
Frederick Harris Bobbitt born 1800
Many of these dates are set according to the records and the pattern seems very strange, but probably true for very good reasons unknown to us.
John Bobbitt died in 1823, Lewis died in 1836, William is not easily identified, we believe that he went to Fayette County, Alabama, Richard John seems to have lived out his life in North Carolina, and Frederick Harris Bobbitt lived and died in Franklin County, North Carolina, with descendants still living there today.
In the 1830 census Elizabeth was listed as head of her own household, although one son was living with her. The census was taken in Franklin County, and listed immediately aster the family of her son, Lewis C. Bobbitt.
1 male 30 - 40 (1790-1800) 1 female 60 - 70 (1760-1770)
The male here is believed to have been Richard John Bobbitt and we do not think that he ever married. He does not appear in any other records throughout the United States. He does not seem to have been living in 1848 when Elizabeth wrote her will.
The children of this family migrated to distant southern states and most did not know when their mother died. The war between the states completely separated the family and few if any of the descendants know of their Warren County heritage.
