Thank you D. Bobb, are you related to this Valentine Bobb? I believe I have found that name on the census, but do not believe it listed spouses name, will be traveling to Highland Co. sometime to check the records there. If you are related to this line, what do you have?

Sorry that I don't have much info for you. I just started (on Monday) to look for relatives of William Floyd Bobb (b1883) in Highland Co., OH. When I came across Valentine Bobb's name I wrote it down. Saw your message and sent all I have. If I come across anything else I will post it for you.

Hi Charity, Yes we are related. William Floyd Bobb and Edna Mae Hughes had 5 children. Clarence Erwin (b1906) Ninabell (b1913) James Maxwell (b1917) - this is the line we are through - O'Leatha (b1919) and William Floyd Bobb Jr.,(b1925). I started looking for information this week to surprise my husband who is a son of James Maxwell Bobb. I never expected any contact this soon - I have been looking on my side of the family for over a year. This is so exciting. I would love to know more.

Donna,
Hi, ok, this is great! William Floyd BobbII is my grandfather and James Maxwell Bobb's brother, James was killed in a car accident also, I have a newspaper clipping (copy maybe two, one from Bellefontaine, and maybe Springfield, Ohio dated Jan.2, 1965. I also have a copy of his death certificate, I can give you more info, but would rather do through email, my home email is debeer@bright.net, Maybe you have some information too such as names further back?? Valentine Bobb is the furthest on Bobb side we are searching.

Hi Donna.

I have located the graves of James Marion and Mary Stults Bobb in Highland Cnty. Also found the farm where they lived before moving to Pike County where James Marion died. Located the marriage license of Valentine Bobb and Lucinda Hatter in Highland County, but there is also a Valentine Bobb who married a Leah Rhoades in Highland Cnty. Not sure at this point in time if this is one and the same Valentine, or if there were two men with the same name. Haven't made the final connection between either of these Valentine Bobbs and the Jame Marion Bobb that we know we are related to.

Barbara, I think it is great that you have found the location of the graves. I sent some information to your niece that I found at the Clark Co. library. I don't know if it will help or if it will just confuse things further. The next time I go I will try to find info in Pike Co.. I have only been looking in Highland Co. This is so great. D

I saw the post for Edna Mae Hughes and William Floyd Bobb. I am afraid that I don't have any more information then you folks seem to going back further in the line. My grandmother was Ninabell (Bobb) Conover. I do know that the only two living children of Edna and William are O'leatha and William Jr. Please let me know if you have had any better luck then I in tracing back farther. I have the names of William Floyd's parents. They were James W. Bobb and Mary E. Stultz. Edna Mae's parents were William Paul Hughes and Mary Catherine Goodson. Mary Catherine's parents were Belt C. Goodson and Lydia Doan. Thanks.
