James Tolliver Bobbitt and his family left Louisiana Missouri in 1877 and moved to Limestone County, Texas. We do not know what happened to Joseph, but do not believe that he married. William apparently returned to St. Louis Missouri, where he married and was listed there in the 1900 census.

In 1880 Eliza (Bobbitt) Anderson was living in St. John Kansas.

In 1891 Tilman Bobbitt was 85 years of age. He traveled by train to Hill County Texas to visit his son, James Tolliver Bobbitt, and his grandchildren. It was near Christmas. After a lengthy visit with this portion of his family, he went to North Platte Nebraska and visited with his relatives there. During the late summer and fall of 1891 he returned to Monroe and Greenbrier counties, where he had grandchildren and many relatives. His brother Oregon Bobbitt was still living. Shortly after this visit he died in Chicago, Illinois on April 22, 1892 at the age of 86. His brother Oregon Bobbitt, died in Monroe County on February 18, 1893. Oregon Bobbitt had the death of Tilman Bobbitt recorded at the Monroe County, court house.
