I am glad to know that there are other Fobbs family members searching. I am not sure if we are related, but there is a good possiblility. So far, I have met three (not yet connected) branches of the Fobbs family from CA; you make four. I hope to sit down soon and try to connect all the information I have collected and the info from the National Archives and see just how we are all connected. My family originated from LA. Leesville, Mansfield, Shreveport, DeSoto, and others. My grandfather was Jonathan Hamilton Fobbs, and I believe his father's name was John Hamilton Fobbs. My father was Booker Terry. I am Joi's aunt, and have spoken with Thomas from IL also.
Hope to hear from you soon,
