Our surname (Hobbs) research has dead ended in NC around 1820 with the birth of Nathaniel Hobbs. The results of a Y DNA test have match with the surname Mizell. The only connection we can find with the names Hobbs & Mizell in NC around 1820 is a bastardy bond issued in 1816 for a Nancy Miller. The bondsmen were Charlton Hobbs, John Mizell and Cader Mizell. These three men lived in close proximity in Bertie County in the 1810 census. John Richard Mizell was the son of Cader Mizell. Cader's grandmother was Sarah Charlton, and Cader had an uncle name Charlton Mizell. Nancy Miller's mother was a Sarah Mizell and Nancy's baby brothers name was Nathaniel. I'm looking for any information that might help to prove or disprove this connection or any connection to the Hobbs / Mizell familes in the NC area in the late 1700's / early 1800's.
