Chird,
 
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my E-mail.  My name is Beth Howser, bhowser@alltel.net and I live in Little Rock.  If I need to post this query on the Bobbitt web page, please advise me. 
 
Do you know of anyone who is a descendant or works on the Dr. Thomas B. Bobbitt, of White Co., AR line? 
 
My 2x great grandparents were Phillip Yancey Graves and Elizabeth Tingle/Tinkle.  They are buried in Antioch Cemetery. 
        P.Y. Graves, Cane Township, White Co. School Dist. 24, no occupation listed, 1890.
 
Tom B. Bobbitt, age 7 is listed on the 1910 Union Twp. White Co., AR with Phillip Y. Graves's brother's widow, Nancy Rutherford Graves, as a grandson. 
 
He has to be the son of one of Nancy R. and John W. Graves's daughters.  On the 1910 census, the only daughter not accounted for is Sallie (Sarah?), b. ca. 1880 White Co., AR.  That is, unless daughter, Cora who is with her mother on the 1910 had Tom Bobbitt out of wedlock. 
 
I didn't find a Graves/Bobbitt marriage record at the Searcy Library.  Because Tom B. Bobbitt, b. ca. 1903 AR (father b. AR, mother b. TN) looks like he was named for Dr. Thomas B. Bobbitt, the only male I can come up with for his father is Lawson Bobbitt, son of Dr. T. B. Bobbitt.  The mother's TN birth place throws me.  John and Nancy Graves didn't have any children born in TN.   
 
I found Lawson Bobbitt as a UA Fayetteville student in 1900 and later found him in Pine Bluff married to Willie E Unknown.  They had no children on this census. 
 
On the SSDI, there is an AR issued SS# to Thomas Bobbitt, b. 1 Aug 1903, d. Apr 1982 Jonesboro, Craighead Co., AR.  This seems to correlate with the birth date of Tom B. Bobbitt on the 1910 census. 
 
I hope to find someone descending or working on this line.
