Lemuel D. Bobbitt and his family did not join the family of John Greer Bobbitt until after the death of Lemuel Bobbitt Senior in 1848. As near as we can tell the families of the daughters of Lemuel and Ellendar moved to Houston and Cherokee Counties Texas. Ellendar apparently lived out her life in the home of George W. Bobbitt, and in the state of Alabama.
