About Urath Hobbs

(Burial) (Nearby, on U.S. 62 is a historical marker regarding Kincheloe's Station or the "Burnt Station" which was on Joseph Hobbs's land. The inhabitants of that fort were massacred by Indians in 1782.)

Urath Owings was probably his only wife and is probably the one buried on the Shields farm. The question arises from the will of his father Joseph Hobbs, who refers to Thomas's "first" wife Urith, who was living in Maryland at the time of the writing of the will. This could have been some kind of precaution against awarding a legacy to any possible second wife of Thomas's. She is said to have been the dau. of Christopher Owings and Betsy Lawrence, and Christopher Owings was the son of Samuel Owings (son of Capt. Richard Owings and Rachel) and Urath Randall (dau. of Justice Thomas Randall and Hannah Bale). See p. 131, Owings and Allied Families, comp. by Addison D. and Elizabeth S. Owings, published 1976 by Polyanthos, New Orleans.
