Redmond/Hobbs of Keiser,WV/Dinwiddie, VA Updated August 10, 2001
About Our Family Research
WE HAVE JUST BEGUN RESEARCH. THE REDMOND FAMILY IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, WITH DESCENDENTS FROM KEISER, WEST VIRGINIA. THIS FAMILY HISTORY REVEALS AFRICAN AMERICANS AND INDIANS FROM THE BLACKFOOT NATION. THE HOBBS FAMILY IS CURRENTLY LIVING IN BALTIMORE, LANDOVER, AND BLACKSTONE VIRGINIA. WE ALSO HAVE THE FAMILY NAME OF JOHNSON IN THE VIRGINIA HISTORY. WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL JOHNSON/HOBBS FAMILY REUNIONS IN BLACKSTONE, AS WELL AS BALTIMORE MARYLAND. THIS IS A MIXED FAMILY WITH HISTORY SHOWING THAT MR. ROOSEVELT HOBBS, SR., AND HIS FATHER, TALLY HOBBS WERE OF THE WHITE RACE. ON THE OTHER HAND, MS. OLIVIA JOHNSON-HOBBS WITH A JOHNSON MAIDEN NAME SHOWS A HISTORY OF AFRICAN AMERICANS, WITH A SHORT STRETCH TO THE HISTORY OF SLAVERY, ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT SURE HOW FAR BACK. WE FEEL IT IS ONLY CLOSE TO ONE OR TWO GENERATIONS FROM OLIVIA JOHNSON-HOBBS.
