Johnny,
I have only seen one Abraham Hobbs in my research so don't know if this will tie in with your info or not. I have Abraham Hobbs born 1818 in VA, son of Nathan Hobbs Sr and Mary Smith. However his wife a was Elizabeth Carter (born 1820 in VA), m: Jan 30, 1840.

My maternal great-grandfather was John Abraham Hobbs. Children: Myrtle, Ida Mae, Bertha, Hazel (my grandmother), John, Aaron and Ira. Family lore has him living in Springfield, Illinois at one time. He settled in Ottumwa, Iowa. Very little family history has been completed on the Hobbs side. If anyone has info regarding him or anyone else in Illinois/Indiana/Iowa area (Hobbs/Pentzer) that I am researching, would appreciate this.

Suzanne, I spent some time this summer in Ottumwa working on the Hobbs/Glenn line. My GG grandfather was Abraham W. Hobbs, b. in Indiana; his son, also named Abraham Wilson, was born in 1867. I believe we'll find a common link.

I have information on a John A. Hobbs b. in Iowa.
John A. Hobbs, age 23, father James (1818, Indiana), mother Mary Hearys(?Hayes)(1820); married Harriet Zimmerman, b. Iowa, DOM Nov. 14, 1882. John A. Hobbs is listed in the 1897-98 city (Ottumwa) directory. 1907-08 directory has John A. (wife Etta--could be nickname for Harriet?) living at 1516 E. Main. 1908-09 lists John A. (wife Harriet).

John Abrahams father was James Glenn Hobbs, brothers John and Abraham, my GG grandfather. It gets better--want to hear more??? Johnny

To Johnny Orona: Thanks for the quick response. Yes, I would certainly like to have some info on your line. It does sound like Great-Grandpa Hobbs (John A.) that you mention. My mother's middle name was Harriet (Lucille Harriet Pentzer Eaves). I was thinking his wife was Ida Mae, as there was one daughter named Ida Mae, but that was Grandpa Pentzer's mother. Which Glenn's are you related to? I live next door to Gary and Jane Glenn's son Brian. Gene Glenn, perhaps? Email me directly at skoehle@lisco.net if you like. Thanks again, Johnny, for contacting me. Best wishes, Sue Koehler

You're right, my greatgrandmother was Harriet Brudentia Zimmerman Hobbs. She died of consumption at the age of 49. Sue
