Seeking information, parents etc., of Mattie E. Pyland(b. Jul 1856 Tenn d. Bef. 1902 Marion County, Texas) who married in Tenn Bef. 1879 to John A. Bobbitt(b. 11 Oct 1853 Tenn d. Aft. 1902 Marion County Texas) They were in Texas by 10 Oct 1879 when my ggrandfather Oscar Bobbitt was born. He married Nora Lee Webster 20 Apr 1902 in Marion County, Texas and d. 08 Jan 1937 in Marion County, Texas. Both are burried in the Pyland Cemetery.
One son Edgar James Bobbitt was born 30 Apr 1885 in Greenville, Hunt County, Texas(per his death certificate)m. Mary Lee Sellers 21 Sep 1913. Edgar was killed in an oil well accident, 05 Jul 1937 in Cass County Texas a few miles north of Marion County. He was only watching the men bringing in the well when something exploded and amputated his leg and that of another young man who was supervising the operation. Both died of the injuries.
The family purchased land in Marion County Texas 14 Dec 1886. They lived the remainder of their lives in Marion County.
Mattie had at least one sister--Dora Pyland Barrett Webster b. Aug 1868 Tenn. After becoming a widow, Dora married Joseph T. Webster, the father-in-law of Mattie's son, Oscar.
Other children of Mattie and John: Viola married Tim Jordon 22 Apr 1899; W.W.(Will) b. Nov 1882 married Jimmie Simmons Lemons 02 Feb 1915; Lola b. 1892; and Vernon A., b. Feb 1898 m. Bertie Mae Gilbert. 02 Jun 1917. The 1900 Marion County Census lists eight children born and five living. This probably was five living at home since Viola was not at home(don't know date of her death).
Any information or ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. CJD
