I do not find that the below has been posted here earlier and that is a surprise.
James Bobbitt lived on the Pigg River and Frying Pan Creek in what by 1766 was NW Pittsylvania County. He left a will in 1761 Halifax County that named his wife as Elizabeth and all of his children.
The children were John, James, Randolph, William, Mary and Livisa Bobbitt, Dinah "Jinnings" and Ann "Hinson" plus a step-son Richard "Bennit",
From other sources we find that William married Nancy "Ann" McKenzie, William was the militia captain in Montgomery County 1778-1782. Richard Bennett married Mary Dalton. Ann Bobbitt married James Henson. Diannah Bobbitt married Jonathan Jenninbgs (my ancestors), Livisa Bennett married James Cochran. Many of these, perhaps most, later were in Montgomery/Grayson County, Virginia. Still later in the 1830s, Jennings, Hensons and other related families moved to western Missouri for which I have records.
Some have claimed that the wife of the elder James was Elizabeth Dalton. The reasoning for this is incorrect as explained on a web-site entitled "Dalton myths" by James Klumpp. For sure she was not a daughter of Timothy and Elizabeth Dalton as they were about the same age (unless there was an older Timothy Dalton born ca 1680 as has been contended).
