In the census record of 1820 in Moore County we know that the male 26 to 45 is Green Bobbitt son of John and Mary Bobbitt. Green was living with his father after his marriage in 1813. Barbara Finch Bobbitt wife of Green Bobbitt and their two daughters were living in the same household. The daughters were Matilda born in 1814 and Malissa born in 1817. The male 10 to 16 we think is James W. Bobbitt born in 1804 and a grandson of John and Mary Bobbitt.
It is difficult to know how many children John and Mary Bobbitt had who lived to maturity. We think that most of their children were daughters. The following is the best list we are able to make from the records.
Drury Bobbitt born 1779
Holly Bobbitt born 1780
James W. Bobbitt born 1781
Lively Bobbitt born 1782
Rebecca Bobbitt born 1783
Nancy Bobbitt born 1786
Simpson Bobbitt born 1788
Green Bobbitt born 1791
A study of census records fails to identify other members of this family. We are certain that there were other children, but doubt that any were born after 1800.
Children of John and Mary Bobbitt migrated to Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and Alabama, after the death of John in Moore County, North Carolina.
