Need help locating parents/birth info for SARAH ANN BOBO b 1813 and husband WILLIAM REYNOLDS b 1794
Sarah Ann Bobo (born 1813 per her marriage cert and census records) married William Reynolds (born 1794 per census records and his War of 1812 pension request papers) were married in Elberton, GA on 6 June 1824. The compiled marriage cert erroneously shows his birth year as 1796.
This Sarah Ann Bobo has been erroneously assigned to parents Benjamin B Bobo and Mary Parks. That couple had a son in May 1813 named Willis. Sarah Ann Bobo's birthdate has been listed as 6 June 1813, so there is no way they can be her parents. In other places, her mother is listed as Sarah Highsmith, but she was the 2nd wife of Benjamin B Bobo, after the death of his wife Mary Parks Bobo in 1819. Sarah Ann Bobo was only 11 years old when she married, so her parents had to have been nearby.
There was a Sarah Ann Bobo who lived in Jones, GA whose reference data also has been erroneously assigned to the Sarah Ann Bobo married to William Reynolds. They are not the same person. That Sarah married a gentleman in Jones, GA and had her own family there.
There was also a Sara C Bobo, born in South Carolina who moved to Arkansas and was married to someone else entirely. I have seen her data intermixed with the record of Sarah Ann Bobo Reynolds.
William Reynolds carries very little known facts: he was born in Virginia in 1794 (per he him), he fought in the War of 1812 when he was 17, he lived in Elberton, GA and then Rome, Floyd County, Georgia until his death on 13 Nov 1879. He was a farmer with slaves. I have no other information about his whereabouts prior to marrying Sarah Ann Bobo.
Sarah Ann Bobo and William Reynolds lived in Elberton, GA for quite a few years before moving to Floyd County, GA where their last child Molly Reynolds was born. Many other Bobos also moved to Floyd County, including Benajamin B Bobo and his family.
We believe Sarah died sometime between Aug 1860-July 1870 since she did not appear on the Aug 1870 census with William and Molly Reynolds. Many have listed her year of death as 1870, but that has not been validated.
We do not know where they are buried in Floyd County, GA.
I have sent enquiries to the Elberton, GA geneology group.
I have downloaded and scoured the Centennial Reyolds Family history from 1600-1800 and neither this William nor Sarah appear there either.
I have their descendants all documented as they lead down to me.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
