I am interested in information about a John Hobson who lived in VA.I know he was married twice.I don't know the name of his first wife, but I know that when she died he had 3 daughters: Sarah, Polly, and (Elizabeth?) all b. before 1810.
Sarah married a Robert Bolling 12 Oct. 1821 and d. 13 Mar. 1834. Sarah and her husband had a son circa 10 July 1822.
Polly m. Edward Sims 25 Aug. 1824 and she d. 11 Dec. 1836.Polly had a daughter cir 30 Aug 1825.
John Hobson's 2nd wife was Elizabeth Humphreys Evans.They m. 10 May 1810 in (Cumberland Co ?), VA.They had:
a daughter b. cir 6 May 1811,
a daughter b. cir 26 Jun 1813,
a daughter b. cir 15 Mar 1815,
a son named Horace b. cir 11 Aug 1817 who was b. with twisted feet,
a daughter b. circa Dec. 1819.
I believe Elizabeth Evans had daughters named:Martha, Virginia, Ellen, and Jane. I don't know which daughter goes with which birth date.I may even be wrong about which is the third stepdaughter and which are the natural daughters.
Martha m. B. Foster.
One daughter may have m. a French.
Virginia m. circa 3 March 1842, but I don't know to whom.
Horace m. E. Hatcher cir 22 Dec. 1842.
John Hobson's brother d. 9 Feb. 1816 leaving a large family, but I don't know his name or where he lived.
As you can tell, I need lots of help to figure things out.
Elizabeth Humphreys Evans was the daughter of William Evans and Martha Hendrick.Her mother had a sister who married a Hobson and moved to TN in 1806.I don't know their names.They may have had a son named Porter.
How did I get all this incomplete information?I found a copy of Elizabeth Humphreys Evans Hobson's journal which was written between 1806 - 1844.
