John is also selling the interests left to him by his unmarried sister Polly Day Bobbitt to his brother James Levi Bobbitt.

Pulaski County Deed Book, 20, page 556, June 13, 1864.

"John and Orpha Bobbitt of Johnson County Missouri to James L. Bobbitt, for $ 200.00 all our claims and interest in the land of Polly D. Bobbitt, deceased, it being two undivided interests in the land descended to her by the will of James Bobbitt, deceased.

The other members of the family did as John and Orpha had done and the record was made in Pulaski County Deed Book 20, page 558, June 21, 1864.

James W. Bobbitt and Nancy his wife, George W. Lee and Elizabeth (Bobbitt) Lee, his wife, John Randall and Nancy (Bobbitt) Randall, his wife, of Pettis County Missouri, to James L. Bobbitt for $ 22.22 to each ... our interests in the lands of Polly D. Bobbitt, deceased, descended to her by the will of James Bobbitt, deceased.

The settlements here stated prove the relationships of the family to each other. James L. Bobbitt eventually owned the original estate of his father.

The children of James and Rebecca (Day) Bobbitt who lived to maturity were:

William Bobbitt        born 1797 married Permelia Cragg 1820

Susannah Bobbitt     born 1801 married John McKenzie 1824

John Bobbitt            born 1805 married Orpha Pascall 1826

Nancy Bobbitt         born 1811 single

Polly Bobbitt           born 1813 single

James Levi Bobbitt  born 1817 married Jane Hubble 1841

 

William Bobbitt born in Virginia died in Pulaski County Kentucky. Susannah Bobbitt born in Virginia, died in Pulaski County Kentucky. John Bobbitt born in Kentucky died in Johnson County Missouri. Nancy and Polly never married, born and died in Pulaski County. James Levi Bobbitt, born, lived and died in Pulaski County Kentucky.

It is interesting to note that the land on Buck Creek owned by Uncle James Bobbitt, and the land on Flat Lick Creek, purchased by James and Rebecca Bobbitt were part of the land that was left in the will of James Bobbitt and eventually became the land of James Levi Bobbitt.

The 1850 census of Pulaski County Kentucky gives the best picture and record of the Bobbitt family.
