"Buck" Hobbs family of Batson Texas is good start. He ran a General Store there for years. His father came to Texas in 1880s. Family came from Clay County (Erin Station) Alabama. Several Hobbs brothers served in 31st Alabama Infantry (Civil War). "Uncle George" Hobbs was taken prisoner and became a "Galvanized Yankee" at POW Camp. Unsure of which Hobbs brother/nephew went to Texas. Sure it was not Erasmus Marion Hobbs.

Well Randy - nice to meet you. I was born in Groveton, TX back in 1950. I don't know too much about my family history - most of it is lost. My dad was from Trinity, TX and he was J. T. Hobbs. From one Texas Hobbs to another, good to hear from you.

Yes, Thomas, Good to meet you! This is what I love about the internet. This ability to find people and information is really neat! And just think, As we all know , we have Al Gore to thank for all this wonderful technology! He wishes. Oh well, what ever will get a vote I guess. Yea Thomas you and I are about the same age. I was born in 1952. Where have all the years gone? I was raised in Dallas, but we have moved out here to the country in East Texas and love it. I'll talk to you later cous! Randy Hobbs

Hi Randy,
I'm just starting to do a family tree, was going through the message board here and found some Hobb's here in east Tx. My family on my Mother's side is all from east Tx. By any chance is your Daddy's name Wayne?
