Patience Bobbitt died in 1854 at the age of 89. Her son-in-law, Robert A. Myrick was the administrator of her estate. The record is in Warren County, Will Book 44, page 120.
"Account current of Robert A. Myrick, in the estate of Patience Bobbitt. Paid legacies to, Ann F. Myrick, Rachel E. Myrick, Charles H. Bobbitt, and William ,Browning in the right of his wife, Winifred. Paid fee to Samuel Bobbitt, December 19, 1854."
Winifred Bobbitt Browning was deceased by the time this account was made. Samuel Bobbitt was a brother of Miles Bobbitt who gave surety in the previous record. Samuel Bobbitt was a son of Lewis Bobbitt Junior and a first cousin to John Bobbitt. John Bobbitt Junior is missing from the legacy, although he was still living in Warren County. John Junior did not die until after 1860. The only descendants from this family to carry the Bobbitt family name were from the marriage of Charles H. Bobbitt.
The 1850 census of Warren County lists the family of Hardy Myrick and show that Patience Bobbitt was living with the family.
Hardy Myrick 50 (1800) Brother of Robert Myrick
Ann F. (Bobbitt) 60 (1790) Wife of Hardy Myrick
Ann V. Shaw 12 (1838) Granddaughter
Napoleon B. Shaw 4 (1846) Grandson
Patience Bobbitt 85 (1765) Mother-in-law of Hardy and
widow of John Bobbitt.
The marriages and intermarriages between the Bobbitt and Harris families is extremely complicated. It is almost impossible to study one family without studies of the other family.
John Bobbitt who married Patience Harris was a first cousin twice removed to Randolph Bobbitt who married Elizabeth Harris. Lewis Bobbitt Senior, grandfather of John Bobbitt was a double first cousin to William Bobbitt Senior, the grandfather of Randolph Bobbitt. There is no doubt that the two families were well acquainted with the complicated relationships of the families. Randolph Bobbitt had two brothers who also married daughters of Harris families living in Warren County, near the same period of time.
