Thanks Laura for your message and the records beingplaced on internet.When the new Clay Co. was formedwere all the land, tax,voting,etc. records transferred to the new court house,were duplicates made from records in the old court houses I assume in Talladega.
I need to prove the name of Charles Newton Hobbs (Sr.) (born 1807/8 in N.C.)or was his name Charles H. Hobbs. Tax, land, voting records, etc.would prove his name. He came from Georgia in about 1833 with a lot of other Hobbs.
He and Rebecca Ann "Betsy Ann" Tomlinson are buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery, but graves are unmarked.The grave of C.H. Hobbs that has a tombstone is not suppose to be his grave.I was given a personal tour to the cemeteries in 1966.Eldredge Smith and Harlan Hobbs told me his name was Charles Newton Hobbs.I need proof. Thanks in advance, Jeanninej9rich@juno.com
