My Great Grandmother, Lucinda (Lula) Locklear Bobbitt, was the daughter of Duncan Locklear II and Arry Jane Gilley. She was born 27 December 1866 in Cherokee County, Alabama. She married Thomas Jefferson Bobbitt on 21 January 1880. The had six children. Five girls and a boy. Willie, born 1 January 1896; Geneva, born July 1891, Birdie, May 1898; Jean, born 21 Aug 1893, Margaret, (my Grandmother), and James, born February 1883.
I never met my Great Grandmother Lula but I think I had met all of her children traveling in the summers with my Grandmother Margaret. As I remember, all of them lived in North Louisiana. I was closest to Willie who I called Aunt Dud and to my Aunt Jean. In the summers when I was young I would travel with my grandmother to visit her sisters....I remember lots of good times on these visits and lots of good homemade food from their gardens. They were excellent gardeners and great cooks. The talked continuously about family history...unfortunately I was six or seven so I don't remember the subjects of all these discussions.
Grandmother Lula died before I was born so I did not know her at all. I remember my Grandmother Margaret came to visit me and my family in Lubbock, Texas in the early eighties. As we drove around the small towns in the Lubbock area I remember my Grandmother telling me that her mother Lula and her sisters had picked cotton in the summers in this area of Texas.....she remembered all the towns around there. What a hard life Lula and her girls had after her husband Thomas had died. Those girls were tough...so I imagine that Grandmother Lula Bobbitt was also. May she rest in peace.
