On August 21, 1772, in Culpepper County, Virginia, Absalom Bobo proves bond between William Sparks and Spencer Bobo and Mary his wife, signed January 10, 1752. William Sparks was Spencer Bobo's stepson. This legal action was probably because of the recent death of Spencer.
Absalom wrote his will in 1808 in Laurens County, South Carolina. In the will he leaves all his estate to his wife "Amey," except for some personal bequests. These bequests went to his son-in-law William Powell; the children of his daughter Betsy Gains; Roddy Waits; Peachy Posey; Polly Delph; Fanny, Sarah, Ann, Belinda, Milly, and Virginia Powell. His estate was settled May 10th, 1813. An interesting side note to the will itself is that Absalom noted that he wrote his will in the thirty third year of american independence.
