Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 at night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names.

RE: Cyrilla King
You are so welcome! There were two certificates of death on her, one of them said she was buried in the Douglasville City Cemetery. That is what must have thrown your search for her down a mysterious pathway. You know, can't find 'em when they are not buried there :). I LOVE a great challenge. Doing Ancestry, and now helping with F.A.G. is so enjoyable and interesting to me. Let me know if you have any more ties to the Douglasville area that I can help you with!

Old Fairforest Cemetery/David Sloan
Thank you for posting the photo of the headstone of David Sloan (a direct ancestor) in Old Fairforest Cemetery in Union County. Do you know of any way to reach the graveyard, as it looks to be literally out in the woods? Appreciate any assistance to access and visit David's gravesite. Thank you!

Simpson Bobo/Nancy Foster
Simpson Bobo is my 4th great grand uncle.

Do you have any info about his brother Elisha Bobo/wife Lucy Dean and their son Alfred P Bobo and his wife Elizabeth Hobby? I am looking for any kind of proof of the birth of Alfred to Elisha and Elizabeth.

You have done a lot of terrific work. With your work and the work of my first cousin, I have learned so much about my Bobo Family.

My great, great grandfather, Elisha Madison Bobo from Arkansas was in the War Between the States.

RE: James Leonard Denman
The photo is not specifically James Denman's grave. The mass graves on Memorial Hill are not marked individually in any way, there are simply state markers in each area for soldiers whose state of origin was known, and "unknown" markers for areas were the soldiers could not be identified. Since James Denman's burial was noted to be in the Georgia section, that is the only marker denoting the approximate area of his burial.

There is a directory online of burials at Blandford, including the small percentage of identified Confederates - it can be found here:
