She was the widow of Samuel Hays and had two children by him. Her maiden name was Martha Patrica Stigall, and she was the daughter of Nicholas Stigall*. She was born at Stigalls Ferry in Pulaski County Kentucky. Samuel Hays married Patsy Stigall in 1823 in Pulaski County.
Samuel Hays inherited and purchased from other heirs, 200 acres of land in Lincoln County Kentucky on Pitman Creek. When Samuel Hays died, this land was inherited by his widow, Patsy (Stigall) Hays, and her children.
On July 12, 1834, John Bobbitt married Martha Patsy Hays in Pulaski County Kentucky, and Nicholas Stigall was the bondsman.
This was the first marriage for John Bobbitt who was 34 and the second marriage for Patsy who was 27. After the marriage they went to Lincoln County Kentucky to live on the farm inherited from Samuel Hays.
In 1850 the family was listed in the Pulaski County Census records and it is undoubtedly a complete record of all the children, since Patsy was 44 years of age.
The children of John and Patsy Bobbitt were:
James E. Bobbitt born 1838
Fountern P. Bobbitt born 1839
Elizabeth Bobbitt born 1840
Malinda Bobbitt born 1842
*This is an article by Fontaine Fox Bobbitt and he wrote that his mother was the daughter of Thomas Stigall and his maternal grandmother was a Harris, sister of ex-Gov, U.S. Senator Isham G. Harris of TN. Patsy's oldest brother Coleman Stigall was murdered in Pulaski at the end of the war.
Also there was a tribute to the memory of Mrs. Patsy Bobbitt in the December 10, 1886 issue saying she died 4 Dec. 1886 and she was the daughter of Thomas Stigall.
