HOBBS, WILLIAM W. & MOLLIE STANFORD
Posted by: Janice Mauldin Castleman (ID *****2781) Date: December 01, 2004 at 09:22:13
  of 178

This is a copy/paste of a message I posted to the HOBBS & STANFORD surname boards:

Trying to find proof that the Mollie Stanford who m. Wm. W. Hobbs 1886 in Hunt Co., TX was the daughter of James Franklin Stanford and Mary E. Burton. James and Mary Stanford had two daughters before Mary died in NW Alabama in 1869. One was Nancy Elizabeth Stanford (my ancestor) and the other was Mary Stanford b. 1867. Looking at this marriage record for Mollie Stanford and Wm. W. Hobbb it seems this Mollie certainly COULD be the same lady I am seeking, but need proof.

Here is the census data I found for this couple:

1920 census:
William Hobbs has apparently died because Mollie Hobbs 53 b. AL was listed as head of the household in Marshall Co., OK, still in Odell Twp. Her children still at home were Harvey Y. 22 b. OK, Una 17 TX, Looney 16 OK, and Agnes 14 OK. Her twin sons, Delmer and Elmer, 27, lived in Taliaferro, Marshall Co., OK. Myrtle, 17, lived in Willis, Marshall Co., OK and Will, 29 b. TX, lived in Kingston, Marshall Co., OK.
