|Bio and Links|
I am an 11th generation descendant of Gabriel Baubau (also spelled Beaubeau, Babeau, Baubeau, etc.), who is believed to be the first Bobo immigrant circa 1700. He came from western France to Virginia under the headright system. For more information on the headright system click here.|
For documentation about Gabriel Baubau and his descendants click here.
Though Bobo is an uncommon name, there are thousands of us all over the US. It is absolutely amazing how quickly a family can grow from an original pair. Why, just look at the human family! Bobos have fought in every American war since the Revolution. One was awarded the Medal of Honor, and several are on the Viet Nam Wall.
PLEASE LEAVE ONLY THANK YOU NOTES ON THIS PAGE!! Send personal notes to email address below. Thanks.
Sadly of late it seems that Find A Grave has turned into Find An Obituary. I do not post obits word for word from the newspaper. First of all, out of respect for the living, and second because once the funeral is past it is old news. Yes, I post deceased relations and other pertinent information. I especially dislike scanned obits that are posted as photos of the individual.
Here is a poem I like by Emily Dickinson
I Died for Beauty, but was Scarce
I died for beauty, but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.
He questioned softly why I failed?
"For beauty," I replied.
"And I for truth, -the two are one;
We brethren are," he said.
And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names.

Thanks for checking Hill Family Cemetery for Martha Walker. I was hoping her tombstone still survived, since there is a photo of her husband's, William.
