It is important to note in the family of Nicholas Bobbitt that he had a son named Miles. Miles Bobbitt is a particularly important name in this branch of the family and goes back to North Carolina. It shows that this family had a historical knowledge of their ancestry.

Note that the maternal grand parents of John H. Bobbitt are living in his household rather than in the household of their daughter.

"History of Orange County, Indiana" published in 1884 has an article about James McDonald which states in part that James McDonald married Miss M. Babbitt, daughter of John and Nancy (Hughes) Babbitt, and to them were born eight children ........ Mourning (Bobbitt) McDonald died November 13, 1859. We have long thought that Huse was used as the name of Hughes and we think that this article confirms our belief. The History of Orange County has several errors but much information that may be corrected and confirmed by the records that are readily available today.
