New Discoveries In The Bobbitt Family In Early America
There Are At Least 4 Bobbitt Family Variations In America
Information found in "Cavaliers and Pioneers Abstracts of Virginia Land Patients and Grants Volume 3" by Nell Marion Nugent and researched by Marsha Berry
Marsha Berry Research produces yet another Bobbitt Family genealogical Super Nova.
Not all Bobbitts (or variant spellings) in America are descended from the same immigrant ancestor. Please have your DNA tested so we can learn more. Every Bobbitt line in America needs to be tested, compared, matched, or not matched.
Listed here are 4 immigrants with the name Bobbitt found by Marsha Berry. There may be more that haven't been discovered.
