I'm trying to verify that my Hobbs family actually trace back to William Hobbs and Mary Ridgely of Maryland.
Here's what I have.
John Hobbs B appx 1685, D 1731 m Susannah (1) m Dorthy (2)
Children of John and Dorothy
William Hobbs Born 1722 Married 1740, Died 1770 who married Mary Ridgely Born 1724, Died 1776
Mary is the daughter of Robert Charles Ridgely (b 1702, m 1721, d1770) and Rachel Howard (d 1750)
William and Mary had a son John (b1760, d1808) who married Charlotte (1760-1840)
John and Charlotte Hobbs had two sons ......Alfred (b pre-1794) ......John Ridgely Hobbs (b1799 d1882) m Charlotte Wiley (b1804, d1893)

I have more details on some of these folks, but I'm trying to verify any of the links listed here. The info about William Hobbs and Mary Ridgely I've been able to verify, but not most of the links inbetween. Any help much appreciated.
