Bobar, Cross, and Benedict Families
Posted by: Bob Bobar (ID *****7934) Date: April 29, 2010 at 08:56:58

Looking for information on my aancestors who lived in Essex County. My father was born in Lewiis on May 28, 1896. His father was Irving F. Bobar who was born on Aug 10, 1871 in Lewis and his mother was Cora Ellen Benedict who was born on Sep 30, 1867 in Lewis. My Great Grandfather was Napoleon Benedict who had a blacksmith shop in Lewis. Napoleon was married to Eleanor Cross who was born in 1843. Although my father was born in Lewis, it appears that the family lived in Willsboro. The name Bobar evolved over the years while the family lived in Essex County, i.e.:

       1850 Census – Bobair
       1860 Census – Boban
       1870 Census – Bobear
       1880 Census – Bobar.

Any information that can be provided about the Bobar’s (to include various spellings), the Benedict’s and the Cross’s will be greatly appreciated.
