*Children of John J. and Jane(.......... ) Bobbitt. Some believe that her maiden name was also "Hunt". John J. and Jane were married in Granville County in 1845, and made their home with Archibald and Arabella Powell. I cannot find any record of the marriage or of her death. John Bobbitt married Polly (Mary) Hunt the same year that Jane died. John and Mary were recorded in the 1860 census records. We have not been able to locate this family anywhere after this 1870 census record.
