Charles Harris, father of Patience (Harris) Bobbitt, died on December 4, 1790. His estate was not settled until May 1807. The record is in Warren County, Book 14, page 32.
"Account in the estate of Charles Harris, deceased, by Rachel Harris, administrix. Valuation and division of negroes among, James Mealor for his wife Sally, Frederick Harris, Simon Harris, Bedford Harris, Elizabeth and Randolph Bobbitt, Priscilla and Lenn Kimbell, Patience and John Bobbitt, Nancy Harris, Cherry and Wm. Colclough, William E. Harris and "my own legacy".
Rachel Harris died in 1817 and John Bobbitt was the executor of her estate. The record is in Warren County Book 27, page 330. It may seem strange, but by the time Rachel Harris died, many of her sons and sons-in-law were deceased. She showed her esteem for John Bobbitt by selecting him as the executor of her estate.
From the will of John Richard Bobbitt we know that Joshua Bobbitt was not a son of his family,. We know that Joshua was a son of Miles Bobbitt. An interesting deed recorded in Warren County in Will Book 40, page 179, on May 11, 1849, definitely places John Bobbitt in the Miles Bobbitt branch of the family.
