I have possible info for serious Bobo researchers from Spartanburg SC

+3 votes
My maternal great grandmother was Sara Frances "Sallie" Bobo Moore, b. Jan. 16, 1843 in Spartanburg, SC.  I have no idea of her parents' names.  She was married first to Elijah Harkness who was killed at the Battle of Chickamauga.  Married 2nd to John William Moore Sr. & moved to Texas.

She had one sister that I know of.  Theodosia Earnest "Dotie" Bobo Roye.  Dotie was born Mar. 12, 1861 in Fayette Co. Alabama.

I'm just throwing this information out there in case there is anyone who wants to follow the Bobo trail as far as it goes.  I can provide good information on Sara Bobo & limited info on Theodosia Bobo.


If anyone is interested, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you for the information!  Now I know the names of my great great grandparents on the Bobo lineage.
