About Ann Bobo

Ann Musgrove, born 25 May 1773 in South Carolina

Parents: She was the daughter of Edward Gordon Musgrove and Ann Adair mother needs confirmation 21 May 2011 eh see footnotes


Children of Absolom Bobo and Ann Musgrove are:

  1. Sampson Bobo, born 1807 in Cross Anchor, Spartenburg County, South Carolina; died 26 Oct 1873 in Elbert County, Georgia; married Elizabeth (Betsy) Bobo 04 Sep 1828 in Elbert County, Georgia.
  2. Edward Musgrove Bobo, born Abt. 1808.
  3. George Washington Bobo, born 1810.


  • ABSALOM BOBO, Bobo, Absalom b. March 13, 1765, Albemarle County, Virginia; d. December 11, 1846, Spartanburg County, South Carolina. He married (1) NANCY ANN CROSBY. He married (2) ANN MUSGROVE in South Carolina, daughter of EDWARD MUSGROVE and ANN ADAIR. He married (3) MARY BOBO Bobo, Mary "Polly" Bobo, Jan 1802 in SC. She was born May 25, 1773, and died November 10, 1857, in Spartanburg, South Carolina. (Conoway)


  • The children's dates do not match up with birth / death dates of mothers.
  • Ann Musgrove is variously listed with a mother of Ann Adair, Nancy Ann Crosby, and Rebecca Beeks / Beaks (three of Edward Gordon Musgrove's wives). Her death date is conflated with a confirmed death date for Polly Bob. However, Absolom Bobo could not have married Mary in 1802 and had children with Ann in 1808 & 1810. Therefore we need to find a death date for Ann Musgrove if possible.
