Hi Reitha. i still have not found the Tn marriage for Thomas (T. H>) Hobbs and Elizabeth Rains, or their parents. Howevere, I found the Lee Co., VA. (LCV) marriages for two of their sons.. Franklin and George M., both b. in Hancock Co., Tn. In the 1880 LCV census the T. H. Thomas Family was living in the Blackwatre area of LCV, which adjoins Hancock Co., Tn. The Marriages: Franklin Hobbs, b. ca, 164, Hancock Co., Tn, so of Tom and Elizabeth Hobbs, married on 11 Mar. 1883 to Catherine Roberts, b. c. 1864, LCV, d/o Claiborne Roberts and Athlenia Stapleton. George M. Hobbs, b. ca. 1860, Hanccock, Co., Tn,s/0 Tom and Elizabeth Hobbs married on 13 Aug. 1890 to Arminta Bledsoe, b. ca 1874, LCV, d/o Isaac and Abigail Bledsoe. Neither cpuple, nor Tom and Elizabeth Hobbs were found in the 1900 LCV census or in any LCV cemetery records. (Wonder if they were all back in Hancock Co., Tn., or elsewhere?). I suggest that you contact the Hancock Book Committee, P. O. Box 277, Sneedville, Tn. 37869, to see if someone there could help you with Hancock Co., Tn records for Tom Hobbs and Elizabeth Rains. Ed
