Farm of Thomas Wicker.

Haywood Bobbitt (farm helper)     25 1825 North Carolina

We know that Haywood Bobbitt was a son of Thomas Bobbitt and was apparently working on a farm near where the family used to live in Moore County. It is possible that the wife of Thomas Wicker was a Bobbitt and a daughter of Thomas Bobbitt.

Thomas Bobbitt reared a large family in Moore County. Rebecca apparently did not marry. Richard became a well known and skillful cabinet maker. James died in service of the Confederate army. Thomas Bobbitt senior lived to 1876 and died in Chatham County. Grandchildren of the family moved to Durham County and most settled in North Carolina.
