Lobb families in Canada and the USA
Some 25 years ago I began collecting information on Lobb families in Canada and the USA. For the most part I found that they had emigrated from Cornwall (or Devon) England. However there were five families in America that were so early that I was unable to make a connection over the seas - from eastern Ontario, PA and KY.
I lost interest in family history of any kind when my husband (the Lobb) walked out and am just becoming interested again. I have five children and plan to put my resources together into a booklet form and make them available. Unfortunately my information was gathered before I was computerized, so it is all on sheets of paper! So, this will not happen quickly - and I have a full time job and two part time jobs, so time is limited.
However, it will come!
Our line descends from George Lobb and Mary Holmes of Huron County, Ontario, Canada. George was born in St. Teath, Cornwall in 1813 to William Lobb. He came to Ontario (with a brother) in 1842 and settled in Huron County by 1850. He had six children.
I have extensive information on Kentucky Lobbs (some of whom moved to Texas)and PA Lobbs.
