* Descendants of Gregory Bobier and Martha Willis*

Updated July 24, 2010


I am looking for information regarding the BOBIER family (of Canada and Ireland) and related persons, especially William A. BOLTON, who married Matilda BOBIER circa 1862. They settled near Ponca, Dixon County, Nebraska in the early to mid 1870s, after residing in Iowa for at least a few years. William was born circa 1832 in either Indiana or Illinois (according to various censuses) and Matilda was born in Ontario, Canada in 1841. Their children were James W. (or William), John, Elizabeth, Amariah, Angeline, Sarah Ellen, Martha, Joseph E. and Robert Charles. I am more than happy to share/swap information with anyone researching the above family lines or any of the many lines included in the "genealogy report" (see below).
Thank you to all who graciously shared their information with me. Much of the information in the "genealogy report" is not the result of my personal research and should be verified. Any additions and/or corrections are most welcomed.
4 JUN 2003 UPDATE: Please note that the "genealogy report" has not been revised in quite some time (since July 2000) as my Bobier file has become corrupt and I cannot open it. I realize that many corrections and/or updates are needed. Unfortunately, at this moment, I do not have the available time to make a new file...but I still welcome any and all input!!
