Current 2002 researchers are trying to answer questions about SAMPSON BOBO having served in the American Revolution from South Carolina. A few genealogical books (secondary sources) record that Sampson Bobo (ca 1737) of Spartanburg Co., SC was the one who served in the Revolutionary War and cite sources at the South Carolina State Archives. Unfortunately there were many Bobo sons who were named "Sampson," but only two of them appear as probable candidates to have served in the militia. They are Sampson Bobo (1735) and his nephew, Sampson Bobo (1759), son of brother Lewis Bobo, who lived nearby. Current attempts have been made to acquire copies of primary source data but in spite of this the question remains. Which Sampson Bobo served in the Revolutionary War?
