Freda,

I'm not sure if we are the same Hobbs, but a Carlo
Hobbs, b Dec 5, 1881 d Mar 26, 1951, md Lucy Virginia
Calloway b Mar 13, 1874 d Oct 16, 1958 in Harlan Co.,
formerly Knox Co., KY. They were my ggrandparents. Lucy
had previously been married to a Howard. I don't have any
info on Carlo Hobbs, except what my grandmother, Della
HOBBS Johnson, gave me. It seems Carlo Hobbs was a boot-
legger and spent 6 mos in jail when caught by the revenuers.
Had the reputation of making the best moonshine around &
was part Indian, probably Cherokee, as they were in that
area. He and Lucy's children were Gillis, Della, George,
Lucy, Ruth, Julia, and Barbara. Julia & Barbara still live
in Harlan Co., KY. I hope this helps and if you have any
info on this line of the Hobbs family, I would greatly
appreciate your help.
Regina
