Re: Is it John M.D. Hobbs or John N. Hobbs from Monroe Co., Ga., son of Solomon Hobb
To clarify the names in the SUBJECT TITLE:
Solomon Hobbs and Malinda Davis had a son:
John Newton Hobbs, then he is given the nickname of "MD"
so we then have John N. "MD" Hobbs (this is used in his
marriage bond in Monroe Co., GA.
Nicknames:John was called "MD" Hobbs
George Franklin "Dock" Hobbs was called "Dock"
George's wife: Sarah Webb "Sock" Davis was called "Sock"
Elam Hobbs who lived down the road form George Hobbs in
Monroe Co., 1830 Census had a son Archibald Hobbs, and he became a medical doctor.The book states that Archibald was called "Dr. Hobbs".
We do not know if Elam was a brother or cousin to George Hobbs b. 1782 era in Wake Co., NC.
This information was came from the Hobbs and Related book, Vol. I.
