OOPS!! # 9926537
Hi David!
I'm a Hobbs descendant in Madison Co, AL. Guess you've read the Journals of Thomas Hubbard Hobbs. I thought them great- on several levels. I'm interested in his notes on Hobbs genealogy research in Petersburg, VA. Also in this uncle (?) Hubbard Harrison Hobbs who married Cornelia VanWyck and lived in Columbia Co, NY. Do you know about that branch of the family?Their children were baptized in the Dutch Reform Church at Claverack. I've visited the church several times when in the Hudson Valley in researching the (Van) Valkenburg family.. I've just found that as a connection but don't understand if it truly relates. (VVs and.Hobbs children both there before 1850!) Please let me know here on FindaGrave (my email doesn't work) if you have any ideas.
I hope you are well over your car accident of several years ago. (Used to follow you on Prodigy.) =Best wishes

Henry McCallum: 20533617
Hi David,

I'm a historian working on a roster/history for the 12th Mississippi (my husband had two ancestors in Co. A) and I've been working on Henry McCallum today, noticed your photo. Do you have a better copy you could email to me? Also do you have anything else relating to his service like letters or accounts he may have written before he died. The 12th doesn't have anything out there as far as I know, so hoping I can pull the pieces together so their service won't be forgotten. Email is Thank you. Shelly Liebler

Link requests
Hi David. I sent three link requests about a month ago and wondered if you'd received them. They were for Martha Hobbs spouse, William Hobbs mother, and George Hobbs father and mother. I can send again if you didn't receive.

George R. Rea (1806 - 1877) #20987333
Thanks for the memorials created for the Wesson and Hazelhurst Cemeteries. Please unlink the above from
(currently linked incorrectly, as PARENTS) James Samuel Rea (1853 - 1948) #29100778 and Sarah Elizabeth "Bettie" Rembert Rea (1857 - 1946) # 20994537 - both born 45+ years after George R. Rea (1806 - 1877) #20987333 . James S and Sarah "Bettie" Rea are actually, George's son and daughter-in-law. James is already linked correctly as the son of George and Sarah Simpson Rea (1813 - 1892). James S and Sarah "Bettie" Rea did have a son named George Rembert Rea, 1879 - 1941 (20994584). See Message #20 below. Thanks,

Regarding your statement: "I am still stumped as to where Sarah Hobbs Hays' mother is buried (Martha Wills Coleman Hobbs (1821-1883)." Walnut Grove is just a few miles from Philadelphia and apparently was the Hays family seat. There are a ton of Hays buried in the Old Carolina cemetery. It's a pretty big cemetery too. My grandmother, Mary Lou Hays McCauley, would have my mother take her out there every time we visited. I remember mother saying that she wanted to visit her (Mary Lou's) grandmother who would be Martha Wills Coleman Hobbs.

I will be going to MS again this summer and can go look for her. What was her husband's name? They had a tornado some years back that destroyed a lot of the stones so I may not find them but I will try! Give me as many names as you can and I will try to find those too.

RE: musicians
Ok, I have another picture for you. I'll send via your direct email.

I took the time to calculate our relationship. We share a set of gg grandparents (Hobbs) which makes us 3rd cousins. You can never have too many cousins!

Have a great day!

Added by HistoryNut on Jan 27, 2013 1:32 PM

P.S. I note that you are a musician. I believe that talent comes down thru either the Hays or Hobbs line. We have at least one accomplished musician in every generation. Currently I have a first cousin who's the retired head of the music department at Ole Miss and another cousin who is majoring in music at the University of South Carolina. I had two uncles who played multiple instruments and even had a jazz band back in the 1930's. My grandmother (Mary Lou Hays) played the organ and sang. What is your instrument?

RE: Transfer of George Hays
Hi David. I haven't done much work on any of my families lately. I started a new business and it's consuming way more time than I'd like!

I have uncovered some Hays photos. I'm not sure if I've sent them to you or not. As I recall, you were more interested in the Hobbs line? I also have the SAR/DAR application that my uncle filled using the Hays/Hobbs line. I'm happy to share any of this with you.

I also found a typed hard-copy of the Hays genealogy in a file in the Neshoba County MS library. I will eventually be putting that into Family Tree Maker and could share with you as a GEDCOM. Do you have any on-line trees that you'd be willing to share with me or a way to share a GEDCOM file with me?

Hope you are not getting bad weather today. We've actually got sun here in Memphis today and I'm on my way out the door to enjoy a little before it runs and hides again!

Have a great weekend.

RE: Transfer of George Hays
I have a great picture of George and Sarah's entire family including son-in-laws. It's too big to fit on my scanner so I'll have to take it to FedEx Office to capture it. I'm pretty sure I have some more too. I'll scan them all and send them but it will be August before I get back to Memphis (spend my summers in Atlanta) so that I can get them.

I have a virtual cemetery on here named "Hays" that you might check out to see if you have all the same people I've found -- some double kin might be in there. Also, I have a first cousin who has all the family history work that my uncle did and I'm pretty sure his work on my grandmother's side (George & Sarah's daughter, Mary Lou) included both the Hays and Hobbs. Might have more pictures in his collection. I'll be getting my hands on that by Christmas.

I'll need your direct email address so that I can send the images as attachments. Also, if you are on Facebook, I can connect and put the scans in an album to share. I already have one started for the Hays'.

RE: Transfer of George Hays
I would be interested in any information you have and would be willing to share and I will do likewise. I love the pictures too!

I live in Memphis. Do you live anywhere nearby?

RE: Transfer of George Hays
Sure, happy to have you use the pix. Gosh, regarding the smile, they all look miserable in these old pictures. I think it was the clothes and the long time time it took to get the shots!

I have another picture of the entire Hays family in front of their house. It would have been in 1905 as my mother was an infant in the picture and that was her year of birth. Happy to share that as well.

You are obviously related to my great grandmother. Can you tell me how? Do you have a gedcom file of the Hobbs that includes my Hays branch?

Transfer of George Hays
David, thank you for transferring George Hays record to me. I have just begun my work on the Hays family tree and would be interested in collaborating regarding this branch.

Thanks again!

George Franklin Hays #20535953
David, George F. Hays' father is Harrison C. Hays Memorial #75489217 could you make that link to his father from George's memorial? Could you also link to his wife, Sarah #20537643. Since George is my great grandfather, perhaps you would be willing to transfer his memorial to me for maintenance? Thanks so much.

RE: Hays family
Thanks for the reply. Do you know any details around how she (and other Hobbs) ended up in Misissippi? How they met? etc.?

Would you consider transferring George Hays to me to manage. It would be helpful as I work on the Hays side.

Hays family
Hi David. Apparently we are related through marriage. Sarah Margaret "Sallie" Hobbs Hays is my great grandmother. Her daughter, Mary Lou Hays McCauley (FindAGrave record #43444309) was my maternal grandmother. Sallie and George had 8 children, 3 girls and 5 boys. I'm in the process of finding them all and updating their memorials with grave and personal pictures as I have time.

I thought you might want to make Relationship links to Sallie's and George's memorials and as I find their other children, I'll be linking those to their parents.

Funny, I have the exact same picture of Grammaw and Pappaw (what my mother called them) hanging on my wall! How are you related?
